    Beaver Moon 2022

    So...any Beaver Moons with Cheesecake notes are usually very good. I didn't know what champurrado is, but thought it should be ok. I got this in a swap and on my, this is soooo awful! I think this is the first time ever I sniffed a bottle I didn't like and actually thought about just throwing it away! Smells like bile... yes, bile. In the bottle and on my skin. I might just actually throw this away... I don't see any positive reviews so I don't think anyone would want to try it. UGH!!!!

    Toddler Holster

    Sniffing this in the bottle, I get a sharp, herbaly (spelling?) leather. Not bad, but as mentioned, this is not a smooth, worn leather. Sharp black leather to me. On my skin, I instantly get the pine and chocolate. After it dries, the leather comes out again. The chocolate disappears and I get sift pine and leather. After a minute, the vanilla and chocolate show up, but VERY mild. Gotta sniff hard to get them... mild and way in the background. This, to me, is a little masculine. Not too much, but the leather makes it so. Was hoping it would be a little more on the sweet, warm leather/pine scent. It stays close to the skin but kind of sharp overall.

    October 34th

    Like mentioned above, I have Oct. 33rd, and when I saw this, I HAD to get it. Sniffing in the bottle, I get very faint pine cones with a hint of what seems like cinnamon tea. On my skin, the ribbon candy shows up, with that mild cinnamon scent. This isn't a red hot cinnamon and it isn't a baking cinnamon. But cinnamon tea is the best description I can think of. As it dries, I get a whiff of the pumpkin cookies. I love this!! It isn't a heavy scent, close to the skin and not a lot of throw. It is a wonderful festive scent, Fall or Winter. I am always afraid of any pine scents, and if you are too, not to worry!!

    Boozy Lemon Bars

    Just got my bottle today.. excited to try this!! Sniffing in the bottle, I do get a powdered sugar lemon scent. Not too sweet, not too sour! On my skin, I get more of a boozy powdered lemon cookie vibe! Oh this smells amazing! As it dries, it stays the same...sweet lemony curd bakery scent, with a drop of booze. The 'booze' is in the background and isn't overpowering the other notes, as booze notes tend to do on me. This will make a wonderful spring/summer scent. But I will wear it anytime!

    Marshmallow Candy Canes Hair Gloss

    This smells so good! Just like it says... in the bottle, marshmallow and peppermint! I put some in my dry hair and it reminds me a little of Boo Hg but with the peppermint added in! A vanilla-y marshmallow with the candy cane! I love peppermint scented things, but sadly the perfume oils that have peppermint (like the Lick it's) all faded away super fast. So far, this is amazing!! I can smell the cloud of goodness around me. It isn't overpowering but glad I can smell it. Very sweet but not tooth-achingly so! Oh this is soooo good!

    Snake Oil Sufganiyot

    So excited to get this... anything S.O. I usually HAVE to have. Got this today so can't wait to test it. In the bottle, sniffing, there is that lovely Snake Oil. I do get a little bit of pastry like the other other sufganiyots. On my skin oh my!!! I get the lovely S.O and that yummy pastry. It is a wonderful S.O. pastry smoky thing, if that makes sense! This is good right off the bat and I think this will age into something super amazing!

    Bobbing for Snake Oil

    First off, thank you HerbGirl for answering my ISO for this bottle!!! ❤️ So glad I got a hold of some! Sniffing in the bottle, sweet crisp apple and lovely S.O.! I am a sucker for anything S.O. On my skin, stays the same of how it smells and it is wonderful! I get the sweet apple and S.O. Neither seems to be overpowering the other... a nice mild blend of both. As it dries, the S.O. is a bit more out in front, but the apple is there. This has a medium throw on me. Can't wait to see how this one ages!

    Apple Macchiato

    I never actually tried an Apple Macchiato, because, like Beth said on the website, when I first saw this on the menu at a certain coffee house, I thought, "Um.. ok.. someone has lost their minds!" But apparently it must be good... so why not try the perfume.' Sniffing in the bottle, I get coffee and a hint of spiced apple. It oddly works and smells very good to me. On my skin, the apple becomes a bit more prominent, and the coffee is more in the background, but I am really liking this combo. As it dries, it is more of an apple scent. To me it is a mix of crisp apple and a bit of spice. Maybe that is the coffee I am smelling. Either way, this is more on the gourmand side for me. Low throw and wear length, but I am enjoying it!

    October 33rd

    This really is Fall in a bottle! Sniffing, I get the slight boozy apples and spice. On my skin, I smell the pumpkin. Sweet souffle pumpkin! Not sure if I smell the PSL and candy corn, but it possibly adds to the sweetness... which is in no way teeth achingly sweet. It is a wonderful semi sweet apple pumpkin bourbon fall scent!! I am very glad I got this!! ❤️

    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.
  13. 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!
