    FORMULA SGHAN3: Birthday Cake

    I got a totally different reaction than the poster above me. In the bottle this was pure vanilla frosting. Wet it is a very sweet, complex vanilla, with an almost floral undertone to it. Nothing at all like cake, but very good. Dry, not at all like I’d expected, I never got cake, and while it was definitely a sweet vanilla, it wasn’t especially foody. It doesn’t smell anything like Zorya P, but reminds me of it - that soft vanilla and white flowers thing. Except this is a sweet vanilla, not like icing, but definitely sugared, and the white flowers are … damn, I need better words. Intense? Not strong, but like if ZP’s flowers would be the soft spoken girl at the dance, these flowers are the mysterious woman in the corner you can’t take your eyes off of. I may need another bottle of this one! I just can’t get over how good it is. Decent throw and has lasted most of the day.

    Chocolate Slush

    Maybe I got an off bottle or something, but all I can smell is soap. My daughter agreed with me, and my husband said he can smell something sweet, but still soapy. I haven't tested it because I don't like smelling like soap. It's so weird.

    Askasleikir

    In the bottle it’s all chocolatey. It hit my skin and I smelled cocoa, and something… not cinnamon, but something with an edge. I wasn’t impressed. A couple hours later, I thought it had all but disappeared when my kid got in the car and said “oooh you smell good. Like a pie or something” I still don’t understand where she gets pie, but it did morph like crazy. I don’t get chocolate or cinnamon, and I can’t seem to identify exactly what it is I’m smelling, but it’s good. Rich, warm, a tiny bit “perfumey”, but in kind of a sexy way. I was going to put the bottle on my sales list, but I think I need to try it at least one more time first.

    Kertasníkir

    Sweet beeswax, that’s all I’m getting right now. I’m hopeful more of the fruitiness of the strawberries will come out as it dries. As it stands right now I’m kind of regretting buying a bottle, I prefer the candle wax in Light of Men’s Lives to this wax. I have to give them credit though, it’s precisely beeswax, they have the scent perfect. Okay, as it’s drying, it’s getting much fruitier and yummy. I rescind my regret, I think I’m going to love this. It’s got decent throw as well, I can smell it just sitting here, without having to sniff my wrist.

    Skyrgámur

    In the imp, it’s sweet berries. On, the skyr shows up, making the berries all creamy and rich. It’s not very strong, but I didn’t moisturize before putting it on this time, which makes a difference. (note - I have a head cold, it may be stronger than I’m catching) Lasted for hours, all creamy berry. It didn’t change much, the scents just deepened. I look forward to trying it again when I’m not sick!

    Père Noël

    It’s the lab’s basic citrus blend. Very close to Gobo without the cream, actually. Nice, but nothing I’d go out of my way for. It did last a long while on my skin, had very little throw though, and I never got anything but citrus.

    The Snow at Midnight

    I was hoping for more of that snow note in GTSD and SW, but I’m getting soapy florals. Dark, heavy florals. Smells more commercially perfume than I like, and seems to be getting soapier as it dries. I ended up washing it off after roughly an hour.

    The Snow-Shower

    Ugh. No snow, just incense that smells slightly soapy. Not impressed at all. If it doesn’t morph soon I’m washing it off. Lexie walked into the room and said “something smells really good. Perfumey” but when I held my wrist out to her she said it wasn’t good up close, and she didn’t like it.

    Blueberry Cream Pie

    Interesting. I’m getting a similar blueberry from blueberry lollipops, with a lot of pie crust. Nothing I’d specifically identify as cream, but it’s definitely not a pure blueberry scent. What I’m getting from the air as opposed to nose-to-wrist are two different scents - in the air is much more blueberry pie, on my skin it’s a little plasticky, and much more crust than fruit. Doesn’t last overly long, less than 4 hours and I can’t really smell it at all. I don’t strictly dislike it, but it’s not what I was hoping for either.

    Isidore’s Phoenix

    I get violet, a little. No plum, sadly. It’s much more commercial perfume smelling than I’d hoped for. Dried it’s slightly powdery very perfumey violet. I won’t be keeping it.

    Giljagaur

    creamy cinnamon. Just the faintest hint of coconut, not enough that I’d pick it up if I didn’t already know it was there. While it doesn’t actually smell the same, something about it reminds me of Arcana’s Straightjacket - I think it’s the cinnamon custardy thing it’s got going on. It’s not nearly as cinnamony as Straightjacket though. Dried it’s not as strong as I’d like, and has pretty much no throw, but what’s on my skin is magic. Creamy, slightly spiced coconut. It’s fantastic. I‘ll have to play around with different application techniques to see if I can get a stronger scent, because right now I want to bathe in it.

    Blueberry Cream Pie

    Wow - I have the opposite reaction with this from everyone else apparently. Interesting. Wet I get a similar blueberry from blueberry lollipops, with a lot of pie crust. Nothing I’d specifically identify as cream, but it’s definitely not a pure blueberry scent. What I get from the air as opposed to nose-to-wrist are two different scents - in the air is much more blueberry pie, on my skin it’s a little plasticky, and much more crust than fruit. Doesn’t last overly long, less than 4 hours and I can’t really smell it at all. I don’t strictly dislike it, but it’s not what I was hoping for either.

    Moonbathing

    In the bottle : melons with a hint of ozone. Lightning in a melon patch. Wet: Cantaloupe! Fresh, bright, juice dripping off your chin cantaloupe. I’m not getting any ozone or pina colada, it’s all melon. Almost no throw at all, I just put it on and my daughter sitting 6ft away can’t smell it at all. Once it’s dried down, more of the other scents come out, not in super obvious Pineapple! Coconut! Way, but a rich, mixed fruit way. It’s lasted hours, but only as a skin scent. I wish it had more throw, but I’m definitely glad I bought it.

    Peach Pie

    In the bottle it’s all peach shampoo - not the soapy aspect, but the same bright peach scent. On it gets a little deeper, the peach darkening, so it’s not just bright and sunny, but still very much peach. Dried - it doesn’t really morph at all, it’s still deep peach with a hint of something bakery-ish, which would be the crust I assume. And it hasn’t faded, even hours later, I can still smell it, and it has a decent throw. I call this one a win!

    Strawberry Sufganiyot

    In the bottle it’s pure strawberry, like someone just poured strawberry jelly into the bottle. As soon as I put it on it changed. Much less strawberry, more like a doughnut with just the lightest hint of strawberry. Dried down, it has almost no throw, but few things do on me. It’s all doughnut and sugar and just the faintest hint of strawberry. It’s really making me want to go to a bakery and pick up jelly filled doughnuts.
