    Medea

    Medea is predominantly a floral scent on me. I think the orchid is the strongest of the floral notes on me. The black currant ends up joining in later on so that it becomes a fruity floral scent, although it is more floral than fruit. The resins are not noticeable on me, and I can only sniff the cypress if I stick my nose to my wrist and inhale really deeply. This isn't a scent that I could see myself reaching for, but I am glad I got to try it in my quest to try the GC.

    Oleander Honey

    Oleander Honey is a sweet, creamy, floral honey. The oleander is somewhat sharp at first, but it ends up melding with the honey beautifully and creating this lovely floral honey scent. This is much nicer than I thought it would be. I think I will hang on to my imp!

    Psalm 146:9

    Psalm 146:9 starts off with this lovely combo of cacao sweetened by the vanilla, but then the labdanum quickly bursts into the room and declares dominion over all. It ends up being a sweet cola-like labdanum backed by some bourbon vanilla. I don't get any vetiver from this at all. Unfortunately, it becomes cola-like powder on me after a few hours of wear. I liked this more than I thought I would based on the notes. I just wish it hadn't become powdery on me after a while.

    Diabolical Offspring

    Baby wipes turn into baby powder. Seriously, this is all about that powdery baby smell. I get zero brimstone from this. So if this baby is diabolical, it is hiding it really well. I am not one that wants to smell like baby powder, so this decant is off to swaps.

    Eyeball Seaboar Alchemy Lab

    This is mostly salt and honey on me for the longest time, with just a hint of bergamot. After a few hours, the dusty sandalwood ends up joining the salt and honey, but the salt is the strongest note. I am surprised that I am not getting any patch from this. This was an odd mix of salty sweet. Not bad, just not really something I could see myself reaching for.

    At the Krampuslauf

    At the Krampuslauf is all about that KINDERPUNSCH. I get zero leather from this. The Kinderpunsch dominates throughout, and it is somewhat reminiscent of Hawaiian Fruit Punch. It is backed by a slushy snow note that loses strength over time. If you want to smell like sweet fruit punch, this one is for you. Alas, it is far too fruity for me.

    Pomegranate Grove: Snake Oil

    This is just what it says on the tin: pomegranate over a base of Snake Oil. It's not tart like I suspected it would be, but that may be because I am getting a fair amount of Snake Oil vanilla from this (perhaps because this is an aged decant). As other reviewers mentioned, the pom in this verges on candy-like. I'm not a fan of pomegranate and only tried this because I got it in a mystery pack of decants, but if you're looking for fruity Snake Oil, give this a whirl.

    Gaudium

    Gaudium is the strong scent of citrusy geranium. I couldn't pick out the lavender. The geranium is the star here throughout wear. If you're not a fan of its strong, herbal fragrance, then it would be best to skip this bath oil, because there is no escaping it. A little goes a long way. I like geranium, but it is something that I have to be in the mood for in order to wear. I will be holding on to my decant to pair with The Season of Ghosts, but I do not think I would reach for this enough to warrant a bottle purchase.

    Castitas Bath Oil

    Me, and my boyfriend, sitting in our apartment yesterday: WHY DOES IT SMELL LIKE RICE????? It took me a few hours before I remembered that I had used Castitas as an after-shower moisturizer. I was the culprit! Castitas reminds me of a less foodie, less sweet cousin of My Baby and a Baby Goat, only, the rice flower is a much bigger player in this one. There is a butteriness to the rice flower and vanilla cream combo on me, but I agree with VetchVesper: it's more of a starchiness and not as rich as the Lab scents that contain basmati rice notes. If you only use a dab, it is pretty subtle, but obviously, if you slather your legs in the stuff, you might wonder why it suddenly smells like rice when you haven't made any recently. I will be keeping my decant to pair with scents like My Baby and a Baby Goat, but I am going to wait and see how often I reach for it before debating a bottle upgrade.

    Nefertiti

    Nefertiti is all about the iris and herbs on me for several hours. Iris does not get along with my skin chemistry, so it is an herbal powder bomb on me with just a hint of the resins in the background. I am glad I got to try it in my quest to try the GC, but Nefertiti is not for me. The iris was just not well-behaved on my skin.

    Lorraine Cross

    Lorraine Cross is a really nice, realistic red rose scent with velvety petals. I seem to be amping the rose, because I am not getting any resins from this whatsoever. After several hours of wear, it's still all rose, all of the time. But it's a lovely rose! It's not something I need to obtain more of, as I have plenty of rose scents already that I'd reach for before this one, but I am glad I got to try it.

    Paduan Killer Swarm

    Paduan Killer Swarm was mostly a creamy, coconut-y scent on me infused with some tonka, amber, and a bit of nettle, which I recognize from Snakes Slithering Through Stinging Nettle. I did not get tons of anise from this, and for that, I am really grateful, as it is not a note of which I am particularly fond. I also couldn't pick out any ginger or clove. And while I don't really gravitate toward coconut scents, I found this one to be pretty nice and kept getting this lovely waft from the back of my hand. This is probably one of the best creamy coconut scents I have ever tried.

    Kyoto

    Kyoto is all about the anise on me for the first few hours of wear. So much so, that I don't get any of the other notes until it calms down. Then it is mostly about the cherry blossom and dusty sandalwood with just a tinge of anise. This one is too strong on the anise for me, but I am glad I got to try it.

    Magus

    Magus starts off as a medicinal, spiced resin scent on me. I am not sure what high john essence smells like, but I think that's what is adding a medicinal, yet uplifting quality to this scent, while the galangal is contributing to the spice vibe. These notes are accompanied by the cedar and resins, with the cedar and frankincense being far stronger than the sandalwood. Together, they create this serene resinous scent, which ends up morphing into galangal-infused resins after a few hours of wear. I liked this a lot more than I was expecting to from the list of notes. I wish it remained the way it did during the early phases of the scent, but I liked the early stage of this so much that I am going to keep the imp.

    Knick-Knack

    Orange and clove! Neither of the notes are strong, but that may just be due to age. The orange is the dominant note in the beginning, but the clove ends up being more noticeable once it has been dry for a while. I love both of these notes, so I am really glad I got to try this one! I'm going to hang on to the imp, although I wish the scent were a little stronger on me.
