    Café Mille et une Nuits

    I'm basically a sucker for coffee AND for chai-resembling blends, so this was a no-brainer blind bottle buy. It goes on warm and spicy and with a hint of bitter coffee, a really rich and indulgent smell that I adore. Then the warm, rich tobacco note comes through, but it's not very long-lasting--within an hour or two the scent is the merest suggestion of my having walked past a shisha shop recently. I may need to scent locket this one!

    All Souls

    My bottle says 2019 version! It's all sweet fruit on my skin at first, and then the incense comes through as it dries. The fruit is quite sharp, and the incense is a touch powdery, but together they make a very pleasing warm-soft sort of scent that has very low throw but what scent there is sticks to the skin for hours.

    Slime Queen

    This is Dorian served with slightly more sugar in the tea! It even does the Dorian thing of vanishing on my skin in about an hour. It is gorgeous, though, even if I have to keep reapplying.
  4. Gosh, I bought this because all these notes sounded good, and it turned out they all work on my skin together and make this into something warm and sweet and gentle and delicious. The honeysuckle is prominent first, and then the amber comes forward, and then the other blossoms bloom and it all merges into a soft floral skin musk. Yum!

    Flowering Chrysanthemums

    This is a sweet, soft, golden-blonde floral. It's got less of a spicy kick than I'd expect from chrysanthemum and cinnamon, but it definitely has a warmth to it. It's such a delicate blend, somehow never tips into too-sweet or too-woodsy or too-heated or too-floral. Gorgeous, and I'm very glad I managed to get a bottle!

    Ghost House

    It went on very dust-heavy, but it's dried down to soft, old woods and moss. The berries are here, but they're faded, adding only an edge of sweetness. I don't quite know how I feel about it, really.

    At first, when wet, this had a strong 'dirt' sort of component to it that made me wonder if I would be better off donating it to a friend who has significantly more appreciation for dirt-ish blends than I do. Thankfully, when dry, that earthy smell dissipates, leaving me with a light gingery-resiny scent that is much closer to what I'd hoped for! It's warm but not cloying, and the spices are so gentle they just sort of accentuate the gingery notes.

    Lick It With Consent (2016)

    I'm not sure which version I have, but it's a pure blast of peppemint layered over sweet vanilla. It's a little more vanilla than the original Lick It, I think, but it's equally delicious. An ideal Yuletide scent!

    Al Azif

    Warm, smoky-sweet incense with hints of almond? woods? saffron? I can't tell but none of it is bad. I like this a lot; it hugs close to the skin, but has all the comforting autumnal-associative feeling I want in cooler weather.

    Pumpkin I (2014)

    These notes are a DREAM combination for me, I won't lie, and so I was a bit disappointed to put it on and for it to smell like warm, spicy burnt plastic. Mercifully after drying down it's lost that burning plastic, and it's resolved into a melange of spices and heat and tea that's quite lovely. It's not quite how I imagined it would smell from the description, but it's going to be a great scent for autumn.

    Sharp, sharp sharp yuzu at first, blending down into a really glorious musk-and-sweet-florals mix. I can just about detect--or maybe I'm just imagining--the citrus and tea in the background of it, but the transition from ALL CITRUS SPIKY to the musky florals is very dramatic on me! I love both ends of this.

    A gentle, light fragrance, the carnation is a bare whisper of warmth under the creamy-honey scent. Usually the lab's honey note does unspeakable things on my skin, and rose is often a powder-bomb, but here they both just suffuse the scent with sweetness. Delightful and unexpected.

    To Lesbia

    Lush, spicy carnation. Very warm, very resin-y. Turns a bit powdery after a few hours but not in an unpleasant way.

    Please Scream Inside Your Heart

    This is the purest, most delicious cinnamon-encrusted churro scent! I bought a bottle entirely on a whim, after buying a decant that isn't even here yet, and I'm so glad I did because I want to eat my own wrist oh my god.

    Grapefruit, Yuzu & White Musk

    This is super well-blended on my skin after drydown, a really nice balance of musk and citrus. A very summery, shimmery sort of scent.
