  1. Peach is first to the party in a halo of white petals. Over time, carnation begins to shine through, supported by the musk and resin. Even so, I can still detect a thread of peach twining among the rich floral spice. It’s lovely. Something I’d choose for an evening on the town.

    I Hear America Singing

    I keep reaching for this! It’s a scent that stays fresh and sweet on my wrists over hours of wear. Beautifully blended with a subtle ginger zing and a dapple of neroli. The citrus components work their uplifting magic like they always do. Super enjoyable and fun.

    Pleasure Abundant

    Love at first sniff! The opening notes somehow put me in mind of Polyhymnia, but when I checked the notes, seems like there's no commonality. Polyhymnia: orris root, white sage, rowan bark, red sandalwood, myrrh, rosemary, lemon balm, honeysuckle Pleasure Abundant: orange blossom, sweet amber, red honey, pink peppercorn, frankincense smoke Pleasure Abundant is staying fairly close to my skin, with a very pretty powder effect. The honey and amber sweeten it and the smoke gives it body. Happy to add this one to my favorites.

    Apostrophe of Time

    Really love this. To me, it comes across as a very well blended cologne. I can't pick out individual notes like lemon peel, just a smooth and vibrant, unisex fragrance. After the first flush fades, I feel like there's sandalwood or something woodsy, or maybe that's just my expectations of something in the fougère family.

    The Queen's Croquet Ground

    A fresh spring rose that is brightening my room and making it feel like April flowers!

    L’Eau de la Passion Bath Oil

    I adore this. I had my first bath with it tonight, and it filled the room with carnation and neroli, with an undercurrent of honey. Definitely floral with the freshness of neroli, and luckily the carnation stays fresh, too. (I always want to love carnation, but sometimes it doesn't love me back.) This is right up there with my favorite BPTP bath oils of all time.

    Großvater Tanz

    Großvater Tanz didn't smell good in the bottle, but since I was at Will Call at knows perfume, I tried everything on anyway. A few minutes later, I caught a miraculous, familiar scent from Saturday mornings as a kid, getting up early to watch cartoons and eat sugar-coated cereal. My favorite cereal was sweet, with a fruity pop, and smoothed by rich milk. So there I am at Will Call, sniffing the side of my hand, completely intrigued by the suggestion of Froot Loops but not knowing which bottle had produced it. After accidentally enabling about five other people--"Smell this! Which one is it?!" "I don't know, but tell me when you find out!"--I figured it out. Totally awesome and I can't wait to get a bottle of this!

    Mother Ginger

    MOTHER GINGER From beneath her skirts emerge eight gingerbread children: gingerbread, French vanilla, sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and marshmallow cream. Mother Ginger has an airy freshness and openness to it. I sometimes find the "baked goods" type of ginger scents a little heavy due to the butter, the batter, the other spices... This is unlike those, being smooth and light; in fact, an uplifting ginger. So good!

    The Forest Reverie

    I rubbed a little Forest Reverie in the crook of my elbow, and before you could say "Sweet Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn," I felt my phantom testicles descending. If you want to smell like a boy in a really, really good way, here are the steps: 1. Apply The Forest Reverie 2. That's it! You're done!

    Tiki Princess

    To me, Tiki Princess is a kissin' cousin of Snow White.

    Enraged Groundhog Musk

    Enraged Groundhog Musk was a keeper way-back-when because I liked the spicy, almost-cinnamon smell, but...tried it again yesterday, and my skin reacted with red welts. Cinnamon-type scents have done that before (Alone, I'm looking at you). I love how they smell but they're locket-only for me.
  12. #356 Amber and chocolate.

    Giant Squid

    Giant Squid surprised me. Without looking at the bottle, I poured a little on the back of my hand. Ooh! Lightly spiced apple juice...or apples richly cooking down to sauce... That's when I checked the label. Squid? No apple in the notes--no fruit, even? What up, nose? Whatever it's made of, whatever marine creature inspired it--this bottle is mine, all mine, so keep your tentacles to yourself.
  14. The Wrestler Onogawa Kisaburo Blowing Smoke at a One-Eyed Monster really resonates with me. I love the woodsy/balsamic backdrop sweetened up by white honey and the ticklishness of the pepper. On me, its throw is light, a bit heady, but still very grounded.
  15. Smoky, smoky, smoky...as though vetiver had been wrapped in a moist plantain leaf and suspended in sweet smoke to dry.
