    White Chocolate and Sugared Violets

    I just got an aged bottle of this. I get the same white chocolate note that's in White Chocolate, Marshmallow and Coconut and White Chocolate and Strawberry. (It's the only lab chocolate note that is physically sticky on me. My wrists always stick to my blotter as I type when I'm wearing any of those... totally worth it though!) However, unlike the other two white chocolate scents I mentioned, this one lasted and lasted and lasted. I could still smell hints of it when I went to bed last night. Joy! The violet note smelled much more like valerian to me then violets. It's still chocolate-covered purple though, which is wonderful! I had edible sugared violets at a friend's wedding reception, and thought this would be similar. However, it's much creamier than that. More decadent candy (like divinity) and less rock candy. I'm a BPAL foodie all the way, and this fulfills that requirement-- but it also has a lovely feminine sophistication that makes it very wearable. It's nice to know that even a die-hard foodie can find a floral now and again!

    The Gorobble

    I just came into possession of a lovely now-slightly-aged bottle of this. While I had an initial *impression* of cinnamon, I didn't get straight up cinnamon itself. More like the Devil had been roasting marshmallows on his horns and a bit of those embers had rubbed off in the poof... Underneath I catch a tiny hint of creamy moss, similar to that in Lawn Gnome. I only smell teeny whiffs of that note as I'm moving around, but when I put my wrist right up to my nose it's clearly there, cooling things off. I amp cinnamon like whoa, so the fact that I'm only getting a hint of that makes me think this may have mellowed into something much more smokey and less spicy as it aged. I'm at work right now, wearing a suit and heels like a grownup, amazed that the lab found a way to make marshmallow sophisticated enough to wear to my "big girl" job. I love it!

    Honey and Beeswax scents

    I *enthusiastically* second the vote for Pussy. It's pure honey and beeswax on me, and it throws and lasts like whoa! I had a troupemate who kept bees and made this honey and beeswax body wash for us for Yule one year. Pussy is the oil version of that. Just lush and gorgeous. You can almost see yourself all glowy gold and gilded like an Oscar statue.

    Quirkiest, most bizarre oils

    I was originally going to offer Lawn Gnome. It's one of my favorites because there's just so darn many things going on with it, it practically qualifies for it's own entry in the DSM-IV. Then I noticed that you said you like rootbeer scents CaffinatedAngel, and for the truly bizarre in rootbeer I'd recommend The Elephantine Colosuss. Rootbeer, buttered popcorn, and something dark and alarming that I can't put a finger on. Based on the description, I just desperately wanted it to be my signature scent... however, that "something wicked this way comes" element it has going on weirded me out a bit too much. It's pretty much just what foreboding smells like.

    Autumn Scents - recommend the ones you love

    I know it's *intention* is not at all autumnal, but I noticed today that on me the drydown of Smut smells EXACTLY like the scent you get when you burn a votive in a freshly carved jack-o-lantern. It hit me all at once so strongly that I nearly ran into a tree getting lost in a flashback of childhood Halloween!
