    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
  2. 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.

    Spring

    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.
  7. ReallyZeb

    Clytie

    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.
  8. Happy almost birthday!!!!   :joy:

But if you're in Paris, pop over to London! 5/31/22 I recently discovered Khamila Luna and plan to place an order soon to get a present for my roommate. Is there anything you'd like from them? Coconut Lime or Vanilla Raspberry scrubs is there any small gift from mother nature that you'd like me see if I can source for you from old forests? I feel like there is but I can't work out what! do you wear rings on all your fingers? how about a range smallest to largest?

I do like bees, and irises  What kind of sprite would you prefer? A ninja or to know the ID right away? I like both styles for different reasons - I would like to know eventually, but other than that I have no preference 6/6/22 Are you ok with shunga label art (bpal?) yes I dye yarn. Is custom yarn of interest to you? - If so, colors? I have various weights of wool, sport and dk cotton, cotton thread in 3/2 and 5/2, and light fingering weight bamboo rayon that dyes like a dream - no thank you My European travels are expanding!

I like them but they tend to all turn into cat toys Are there any Korean or Japanese food/craft/self-care items you would be interested in in receiving? Savoury food Is there anything for your garden or houseplants that you need, or would like (tiny, hand thrown cachepot for a prized astrophytum, etc.), or are you proudly black thumb and shun any plant that isn't resin? I love pretty outdoor pots but am aware that they are heavy to ship. I can't have indoor plants because my cats are assholes.  How many books is too many books? I don't understand the question! 6/13/22 I’m knitting up washcloths right now. Would you like some? No thank you any spices you need/want? I’m fleshing out a Penzey's order!! Chana masala mix your feelings on chocolate? Milk chocolate, Dark chocolate, White chocolate? with or without nuts? How about truffly goodness? Truffly goodness, milk or white. I like fine ground nuts but whole nuts or big chunks are difficult 6/17/22 Do you want anything for your vehicle? Like bumper stickers or magnets? I don't drive any interest in Japanese fashion-ish items? (kanzashi hair pins, and other things made form old kimono fabric, fans, tenugui, etc?) A fan or anything from old kimono fabric including a kimono 6/22/22 I am afraid to send chocolate in this heat. What other things might you enjoy? Gourmet lollipops? Handmade Marshmallows (not by me LOL)? Flavored cotton candy? other ideas? Marshmallows & fudge do you have any reservations about wearing leather, like in an accessory?? No So I took a "viking knitting" class (which is really wire weaving) and can now make necklaces and bracelets. Would you be interested in either one? A slimmish torc necklace would be nice IF SO What color wire would you like? (silver, gold, copper, blue, purple, yellow, green orange, black, turquoise, pink, so many colors.) I have THIS PACK among others. Blues, greens, silver, bronze What length would you want (on either or both?) 50cm What kind of fasteners do you like best (lobster claw, toggle clasp, magnetic?) and color of fasteners? (silver, gunmetal, copper, gold?) No fastener on torc styles - some of the toggle clasps come in cool shapes. Do you think a larger chunky one like a torc or a slimmer one? I can draw the wire down to different sizes with my draw plate.

    Noisy Goose Moon 2022

    In the bottle it is all banana toffee chews. Wet on the skin I get really good quality banoffee pie, with real bananas and a proper bitter caramel note. As it dries the marshmallow finally appears for me, with a gentle rum note and a hint of the frankincense. This goose is strangely well behaved so it must be plotting something.

    Floral Sheet Ghost

    When wet it's beautiful juicy pineapple sweets and honestly I would be overjoyed if it just stayed like that. As it dries I get more rose and the pineapple edges backwards out the room. Come back Pineapple! I love you! Don't be bullied out by those powdery notes! Pineapple didn't listen 😫 and once dry it's all powdery rose on me.
  12. ReallyZeb

    The Garden of Shut-Eye Town

    If you want a sleep blend, this is the one! In the bottle the lavender is present but only gently so, rounded out by slight flowery herbal notes. Once on the skin there's a brief burst of overpowering lavender but that settles down really quickly and chamomile is the most prominent note. There are faint florals which I can't pick apart as I'm unfamiliar with some but I do get the lemon balm along with the chamomile. Once it's dry it almost has a hay or grasses note. the overall effect is very calming and soothing.
  13. ReallyZeb

    Upslope Fog

    In the bottle and when wet it's all very sharp pine, but real pine not disinfectant. As it dries I get the stone note, and the oaks but no wildflowers or grasses as yet. The pine is far less prominent now. It turns very light after half an hour, grassy but I can't find the flowers. It's almost gone after two hours.
  14. ReallyZeb

    Raspberry Apricot Sufganiyot

    From the start it's all about the pastry note on me, I could almost knock back the bottle it smells so yummy. As it dries the raspberry jam appears, with apricot far more subtly in the background. After about an hour the apricot is prominent, with a pastry backnote. Not much throw, and disappeared after around 3 hours, but it's nice to find a pastry note that doesn't turn sour on me.
  15. ReallyZeb

    Fuzzy Peach Sweater and A Mug of London Fog

    When wet its perfumey, but peach starts creeping into the background. As it dries the peach becomes more prominent but still very classic perfume floral on me. Reminds me of something a relative wore back in the dim distant past but I can't put a name to it.
