    Dark Chocolate, Whiskey, and Hazelnut Cream

    Saw this scent listed, and it was an instant buy! I was hoping for a box o' chocolate scent like this. Reminds me of the ones that came out... what... over a decade ago? Anyway, sniffing in the bottle, yes!! The dark chocolate and whiskey are the notes I detect first. There is a mild nutty cream to it. On my skin, it is heaven!! RICH dark chocolate and smooth whiskey with the hazelnut cream, I really want a bite of this! This is rich and deep! Foody/gourmand lovers need this ASAP. This is well balanced and not sweet, but foody and grown up! As it dries, it stays rich. The whiskey isn't 'boozy' but it has that edge that keeps the chocolate and hazelnut cream from being overly sweet. I love this! Might need a BU bottle!!!

    Cacao, Black Leather, and Incense

    OOh.. this is good. Sniffing in the bottle, I get all the scents... the cacao, leather and incense. It is a nice even blend of all three. On my skin, the leather jumps out first. Heavy BLACK leather! Not a sweet loving suede! After it dries down it mellows out quite a bit. I detect mostly the leather and incense. The cacao is in the background keeping this from being too heavy, which is good. I was nervous it would be a huge in-your-face kind of scent. This is a scent to wear out on the town... not in the office!

    Black Ice Sleeper

    Sniffing in the bottle, there is a bitter apple! There is a hint of something perfume-y/cologne-y, but it isn't heavy. I am not a fan of anything like that, but this is beautiful! On my skin, it stays the same. I am not getting any 'ice' from this blend, but maybe it is the light perfume-y part of it and my nose just smells it wrong! This has great throw and amazing wear length. All the way, it stays that bitter apple. I wouldn't say this is a foody scent, but if you like apples and foody scents, you will dig this.
  4. Bought a DISO bottle off this fabulous lady.  She shipped quickly, and included loads of thoughtful extras.  Highly recommended.  Thanks so much!

    Pinched With Four Pumpkins

    Swapped for this one, VERY glad I did!! Sniffing in the bottle and initially on my skin, I smell pumpkin tea! Cold pumpkin tea. I was worried, but then as is dried, the lovely bark and cinnamon and hint of tobacco come out!! It is a lovely pumpkin-spiced wood on me. I detect a little whiff off coffee in the dry stage, but this is a light scent to me and stays close but it is a perfect autumn scent! I am a foody/gourmand type person and this is wonderful!!

    Sugar Plum Snake Oil

    Yep... there is that wonderful Snake Oil we all love and a hint of fruit! Agreed, the plum is sweet and it mingles well with the S.O. After it dries a bit, I get mostly S.O. with a dash of the sugar plum. This, to me, is actually not very sweet on my skin. This is a lovely and fun scent!! Will be interesting to see how this one ages!

    Sugar Plum Snow White

    This smells very good in the bottle. I get the sweet purple plum scent along with the Snow White! Applied, the 2 scents mingle more and I get a good balance between the plum and S.W. After a bit, the sugar plum is a little more dominant. As it dries, I am not getting much S.W. from this, but there is a bit there to keep this from going too sweet. Medium throw for me and it is a lovely scent. I think I am more of a fan of the plain Snow White.

    Deep Fried Gingerbread

    Had to get this gingerbread scent too. Sniffing, this one is a bit sweeter than my review for Gingerbread Campfire. This one is good! It is a more of a cookie type gingerbread (which I love) and it does smell like it has been fried! Low throw on me and stays close to the skin. This one isn't overly sweet, so anyone worried about that, you don't have anything to fear. A nice gingerbread spice that was fried. Simple as that! It will be interesting to see how this ages.

    Gingerbread Campfire

    Just got my BPAL delivered... got 4 bottles. Always hard to pick one first. So I did this one. I am a sucker for gingerbread!! Sniffing in the bottle, it isn't a sweet, cookie-like gingerbread. more like a raw gingerbread, if that makes sense. Not sure what I am smelling. I thought it was going to be smoky, hence the name, but it isn't. On my skin, the gingerbread gets a bit more of a baking type spice, but still not sweet. There is a background note that I think makes it seem like a campfire, but it is almost a plastic smell. A plastic gingerbread. It isn't bad, but it is odd to me. I was hoping it would be more of a cookie like gingerbread with that smoky campfire vibe, but not getting that. Stays close to the skin and not a lot of throw. Not sure this is for me since I am more of a foodie/gourmand lover.

    Beaver Moon 2021

    Like above, when I sniff, there is a wonderful, thick syrupy gooey spicy cherry with a bit of chocolate, like how it smells when you bite into a choco covered cherry. I love cherry scents, but also a little leery of it because it can be either WAY too sweet or smell like cough syrup. I think the addition of the chocolate and pumpkin help makes it smell VERY good!! On, the pumpkin spiciness comes out, but isn't overbearing. The chocolate & cherry are there as well. I get a hint of cheesecake, but no crust. A crust-less cheesecake! As it dries, I get cherry & pumpkin. Sounds odd, but the two smell very good together! I really like this!! I bet it will get amazing with age. This is a good one for foody/gourmand lovers like myself!

    Sugar Cookie Snake Oil

    Just got this delivered... had to test ASAP! Sniffing in the bottle, it is a little weak. However, on my skin, I get what seems like musk. Maybe after it warms up a bit from the mailbox, it will be different. Interested in other reviews to see if anyone else is getting a musk scent Edit to add, I keep getting musk out of this. I hope there wasn't a mix up with bottles & labels. Woke up this morning and can still smell musk on me from this. I really think I got a mislabeled bottle.. and it makes me sad! I do not like musk and it is all I am smelling. Adding it to my swap/sell page.

    PSL: Pumpkin Snake Latte

    HAD to get this scent. I love my Snake Oil and I do have a bottle of Pumpkin Latte that I also love, so heck yeah! Sniffing in the bottle, I can smell both the S.O. and the pumpkin latte! YUM! On my skin, I get an even balance of both scents, oh this is very good! Nice throw for me as well. This is right from the mailbox and it is so good. As we know, this will get better with age as well! Very autumn and cozy!!!

    Razor Blade Candy Apple

    Straight from the mailbox.. I can never wait for a new scent to settle! Sniffing in the bottle, sweet apple! Not sugary, but sweet. On my skin, the candy apple is very fun! Mild and sweet. As it dries, I don't get anything metallic that I thought would be a part of the 'razor blade' part but there is something lingering that makes the candy apple a bit unedible, so be wary biting into it!! This has medium throw and isn't sugary sweet, but has a sweet bite to it. If you are a foody/apple scent lover, you will love this! Editing to add, after testing this, trying to figure out what this reminds me of...it is a close relative to the Lab's Poisoned Apple, but with a candy apple!! I am really digging this!

    Cinnamon & Leather

    Like above, this is mostly a leather scent, but it is so nice! I too get a suede out of it, but it is very soft. If you are a leather fan but don't like too strong of scents or anything cloying, as some can be, this is for you! It stays close to the skin on me and has a medium throw. I don't detect the cinnamon, but yes, I believe it tames the leather. I really love this scent! It is simple and great alone but would make a great layering note!

    Coffee Bean & Caramel

    So excited to have this! I love anything coffee scented! Sniffing in the bottle, I get both notes... slightly bitter coffee and sweet caramel! On my skin, it stays the same. This is a yummy blend of both notes. The coffee bean is more dominant, but the caramel is in the background. This stays close to my skin... medium throw. I really love this and I hope it gets richer with age, even though it is very good as is now. This is great alone or to use to layer with another scent!
