    Cat at the Table

    In the bottle and wet it's sharp yet ‘perfumey’ and slightly lemony as it dries. It becomes creamy once dry with tea starting to appear and some sort of flowers appearing. Very gentle, I’d love my laundry to smell like this! It's like the memory of a hug, or the faint scent that remains on a piece of clothing that belongs to someone you love. Very low throw and doesn't last long on me but really lovely.

    In bottle it's rich and resinous. Just applied the honey shines through with a tiny touch of saffron - still very resinous, that’s not going anywhere. Once dry it is sweet but not foodie, red musk leading but the honey and vanilla making it a little furrier and the saffron present but staying in the background. Later on it is a gorgeous honeyed musk. Good throw but not overwhelming. Lasts a long time on me.

    White Cat

    In the bottle and wet I get a faint nuttiness and cream. Once dry it is sweet, creamy, with a tiny bit of musk and lemon. The amber gets more prominent over time but its still creamy. After an hour it is amber scented marshmallows. Low throw.

    Entrance to Cadzow Forest

    Overwhelmingly green in the bottle. When wet it is also all about the green, rich and lush but with a slight spicy undertone. It gets spicier as it dries, I think this is the sunlight and dried grasses. After a short time drying the green leaves take over, with almost a wildflower note. This is glorious, I could happily spend an afternoon dozing in a clearing in this forest. After about an hour it has faded quite a bit but stays green and I love it.

Check out Fustini's and let me know if anything appeals! Herbs de Provence or Persian Lime oils, and the Bourbon Maple Syrup We also have an awesome store for jams and sauce, American Spoon which you should totally check out! Smoky Corn Salsa looks so good but it would be too heavy Would you like some locally sourced maple syrup? Always Finally, I live in a place known for fudge. Do you like it and/or are their flavors you particularly like? My favorite shop is Murdick's if you need to see a flavor list. Fudge is always awesome - Butter Pecan, Butterscotch, Cherry, German Chocolate, Maple Bourbon Pecan, Penuche, Chocolate Espresso or Turtle would be awesome Anything from the IKEA Halloween store catch your witchy eye? https://www.ikea.com/ca/en/campaigns/halloween/ Thos pumpkin string lights https://wildsoulriver.com I own the Magical Nature Tarot and love the feel of the cards.

Would you rather have two different 100g skeins or enough of the same something for a bigger project? Not my sort of thing Provided my experiments work, would you be interested in a bar of homemade tallow soap?

    The Little Ghost who Died for Love

    Beautifully green and wet when ... well, wet! Once it's dry, it is fresh and green with very gentle bergamot and only a tiny hint of white musk. This will be perfect for hot summers
  7. ReallyZeb


    On me it starts out almost aniseed but very quickly dries down to creamy flowers, honey and a very mild hint of spices. This smells very grown up and I'm possibly too much of a chaotic mess to wear it!

    Black Cherry, Vanilla Bean, and Champaca

    In the bottle I get juicy black cherries and that persists when it is wet on my skin. It makes my mouth water! As it dries the vanilla begins to appear, and then the champaca, and the juicy cherries are almost gone. Once dry, all I get is vanilla and champaca, no cherries at all
  10. This is very nutty in the bottle and wet, with a slight burnt note. Dries down to a sweet balance of all three, really beautiful.
  11. ReallyZeb


    In bottle - vague laundry detergent, very faint flower that I think is maybe peony? Wet - getting stronger, but still mostly laundry As it dries, flowers finally appear, but can’t pick any specific ones out, except more heady than the Cottage Garden flowers. After a while turns beeswax on me which is confusing. Low throw and doesn’t last long. I'm hoping that after a few months it has aged enough for the incense to be more prominent.

    The Obsequies of an Egyptian Cat

    In the bottle I get the cacao and the terebrith resin, and a bit of the honey shows up when wet on the skin. As it dries the myrrh gets stronger but the cacao is still there. Once dry there is a faint touch of honey, lots of myrrh and some labdanum, with dry cacao and the tenebrith peeking through. After an hour or so I finally get the patchouli coming through, with tenebrith and the cacao still there. Not much throw but it does last a while.

    Cottage Garden

    Wet and in the bottle it is very wildflowery. I’m no good at picking out flowers in this one, but no rose or white floral type things. It seems exactly like walking in a Cottage Garden and is really beautiful. As it dries it gets a bit greener, but this is a gorgeous realistic blend, gentle rather than a heady overpowering one.

    Flaming June

    In the bottle it’s all strong neroli. Wet, the neroli is still there but the tangerine peeks through in the background. As it dries it remains mostly neroli, I don’t get amber or musk at all . It has very low throw and doesn’t hang about long.

    In the bottle I get nothing but laundry detergent, and wet I get a tropical fruit note - something like papaya maybe? Probably the combo of pomegranate and peach. That note fades quickly and the amber comes out, with a slight burnt note (presumably the blackened cardamon). No moss or ambergris for me but the incense smoke appears faintly once dry. After quite a while it ends up incense smoke and pomegranate. I think this will change as it ages and turn into a stunner.
