    Gosh this is neither sporty NOR energetic on me. I get the pink musk, and red fruitiness from the currant and the cranberry, but it's not very tart and tangy. I was hoping for more kick from the pink pepper! It's not sickly sweet, just... cute. It's very cute. Perhaps like how an adult views fraggles instead of how you might feel identifying with them.

    bleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh. the "fire red" tobacco ended up seeming a lot like it was "fire red" from cinnamon oil. Me and cinnamon oil don't get along. I smelled like fake christmas or potpourri. Bleck. No good. It did not particularly get better throughout the day, either.

    Basket of Abalone

    Wet, I got a nice smack of citrus, delicious and juicy sharp, with a tiny kick of the pink pepper to keep it exciting and not just acidic hell. But that basically flied out the door as it tried, and it became a soft soft powdery musk. I didn't get basically anything briny or salty or aquatic about the seafoam. Just sort of a .... soft foam feel. A nose texture of soft dense bubbles, but not a soapy smell. It felt like the smell of the color seafoam. (i'm from an oceanside town. Real seafoam is digusting.) The ambergris was very nice, and there was the tiniest weakest hint of something in the background trying to shout and add its voice in. Perhaps it was the grapefruit zest, perhaps it was the pink pepper. Either way, it was pleasant but not remotely what i wanted it to be. I need to try it on over lotion and in a scent locket, but as usual i'm pretty disappointed with how my skin makes lab grapefruit just goddam vanish.

    Honey, Balsam, Leather, and Bourbon Tobacco Hair Gloss

    oh gods i want to roll around in this. bathe in it. drown in it. it's sticky, sultry, sweet, spicy. musky, in a cloying animal way. I used to sell imported perfume oils from an egyptian shop and we sold red musk that this reminds me of that. It's SO cloying and thick and animal. Almost..... adjacent? to musky animal urine. The kind that's very sweet that makes you worry that your cat has diabetes. But it's missing the foulness of urine. And rich depth notes that you get from good honey. More than just the sweetness. The parts that make honey honey and not just sugar syrup. There's a dry spiciness that is the balsam. That came out more as the gloss and my hair dried, and the sweetness toned down. The soft notes of the leather and bourbon came out, a gentle muskiness but soft. Two steps from what amber usually is. Soft but not powdery. Grounded by the balsam. Spouse is going to let me put some on his beard. 👀 we shall see if it smells as good on him. ETA: on him it's sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good. more spicy balsam. It doesn't do the sticky-sweet musk thing. more of the interesting notes like ellocentipede mentioned from a tobacco box. But amaaaaaaazing still. bbl face buried in spouse.

    i'm getting slammed with musky buttered popcorn. i'll let it see how it does on my skin, and maybe try it again some other time, but uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. hunh. this is a strange one. maybe it's contaminated (def not a new from lab imp)

    Improv Zombie Scene

    definitely bright sparkling apples, honey playing along gently in the background, I agree about the possible floral note? theres something soft and pink at the edges. I've never tried lab "brains" or "cerebral fluid" notes so i have no idea if that actually affects the scents. maybe the faintest hint of skin musk? there's something very soft in here. and zero grapefruit on my skin. :< he floral note is getting stronger. plumeria does seem a strong possibility. sigh. the grapefruit quest continues.

    Telling age on imp labels

    I'm sorting my imps and i've noticed that some of them have a more blue tint to the labels! The black is a blue-tinged black, and the shading around the names is more purple than red. I've also noticed that the fonts sometimes have the faintest difference. Some are a little clearer and bolder, maybe a fraction of a point bigger. (between multiple copies of the same scent) Is this a known way of dating your imps? Is it merely that they were running low on toner when printing those labels?

    Voyeuristic Monkey

    It was…….. golden and filthy. I didn’t actually bother to read the description before or during while i was wearing it? but that’s kind of the only way i have of describing it. I know the dirty scent was the patchouli. Me and patchouli get along very well but we smell very wet dirty. very patchouli. and it was….. golden. golden oil. golden dirty. musky. animal and rich. like wide sunbeam patches shining down on lazy indolent creatures. i didn’t get anything green from the galbanum, or woody at all, and no spiciness like i would have associated with cumin. The image that kept coming to mind was a lion tamarin monkey (maybe specifically a golden lion) absolutely dripping with mildly dirty motor oil All day I thought about gaga’s Beautiful Dirty Rich.

    Luke 10:25-37

    it’s good. i smell rich. like. i smell like it’s the year 500BCE and i’m made of money. and or maybe i’m a very lazy djinn or a wizard's apprentice that just got sent to fetch very important expensive ingredients. seconding the observation that it dries to a beautiful, skin-close golden amber. it's been on me for over twelve hours and i can still smell the amber. i like it i need it i’m gonna get a bottle. (now all it needs is oudh and honey. If there was a scent with those six notes and only those six, I'm pretty sure I would buy like ten bottles.)

    I didn't get very much citrus blast from this. I was really hoping for it. It was sweet and soft and sugary (but not sickly syrupy so) when i sniffed and first put it on but as it dried it turned into the softest vanilla cream skin scent that I swear was more like a skin musk than foody vanilla cream. At the end of the day a friend sniffed it and said I smelled like a fruit salad made with whipped cream. Great staying power, but it was a good close scent. It didn't shout loud or haunt me in a cloud, it stayed close and lasted long. I can still get the faintest whiff of it the next morning. It's nice but I really was looking for more citrus than I got out of it.

    Queen Alice

    This was very sweet and spicy at first, threatening to go to that icky sticky spiced holiday realm I have no love of. It must have been the wine, and perhaps the spices from the cider. I like applying the scents without rereading the description first, so that I don't let my brain look for things with a bias. At first I thought it was berries and cinnamon. That was the wine. The spicy cinnamon scent was really annoying at first but unlike Alice's Evidence, it went away after about a half hour. The carnations were trying to pop through but just not quite making it. Now that it's dry, the scent has really calmed down and schlorped right up into my skin. For something that was so loud at first, it's been very short-lived. Might have to try some lotion first next time. Now it's lovely wooly and amber, but light. The tiniest hints of apples, and perhaps a very faint floral in the background?

    All I got was the heavy overpowering scent of wet wet lush wet flowers. Drowning in flowers. Thick, heavy, oppressively vibrant exploding with life and clouds of scent rolling off of them flowers. Not sure if it's the muguet (LotV doesn't like me at all) or the tropical blossoms (they usual have indole in them and that doesn't like me either) but eeeeeeeeeeg. I had to use the rubbing alcohol to get it off.

    I don't know if it was the coconut or the rum, but Elegba did not like me. Fake buttered popcorn all the way and it only got worse as I wore it. Couldn't get any other notes at all.

    Alice's Evidence

    YIKES so much cinnamon. I've yet to try a cinnamon note that didn't turn to those gross cinnamon-scented pine cones from christmas time or red hots on me, and this one seems to be no different. Hubs says the dab on my neck is really fruity, no cinnamon scent up there. I can tell the sweet fruity smell is underneath, fighting to get out, but oof. so much cinnamon. Right after application, I was getting a strong sense of "black spice" which must have been the black ginger (it felt peppery? but once i reread the description I think it's the black ginger) but now it's... almost all just sweet fruity cinnamon. It's not burning me or driving me crazy though so I'll let it dry down and give it a chance today. edit: well the cinnamon did go away with the drydown, which is good, but i spent all day smelling like everything i hate about "christmas" or "holiday" scented candles. Thick syrupy overly heavy fruity with a touch of spice. bleck. not for me.

    Today I wanted to feel more comfortably me. Went with something that was likely to be deep in my comfort zone. I forgot the description when I went to put it on. I thought it would be one of the Ars Moriendi scents. so I was very surprised when it was really foodie. but now i’m not. and btw I love it. It’s threatening to go plasticky on me but I’m pretty sure it’ll be fine. i can really smell the vanilla and the sassafras, right front and center, slow and .... somebody earlier in the thread said dusty? yeah. Dusty. The wood is just barely peeking through. I'm hoping it will come out more as it dries. If it doesn't I might have to set it aside in favor of my beloved woodsy scents. Or try layering it with a wood-scented lotion or something. That sounds like a lot of work.
