    Cozy Pumpkin Sweater

    This was the only Weenie that I blind bottled, and it is everything that I was hoping for. This does not feature the syrupy pumpkin spice blend from Pumpkin Spice Everything, and it does not smell like you've doused yourself in a jar of pumpkin spice. I don't even get a fuckton of cinnamon from it, for which I am thankful. I distinctly smell clove sugar ( ) and a bit of a fresh pumpkin that gives it that orange-y vibe, all embedded in a fluffy sweater note. I can't compare the pumpkin spice to a previous blend from BPAL, but I will say that those that have tried and enjoyed Sucreabeille's Pumpkin Spice Pandemic would also enjoy this scent -- it's kind of like that scent without the chai tea and the hit of tar in the initial application, but this has a lovely sweater note. I love Cozy Pumpkin Sweater, and I do think it is evocative of a sweater scented with sugared pumpkin spice. This will be getting lots of wear from me in autumns to come.

    Bits of Birnam Wood

    I did not get a decant of this one because I told myself I had too many apple scents. Then the reviews came in, and I read them and thought, "Well, maybe I should try to get a partial." I am so glad I was able to find one. This is predominantly a mashed yellow or yellow and red apple grounded by a bit of the apple wood. I loved the squished apple note and the fact that there's these other apple notes backing it up, making it kind of like mashed apples in an apple orchard. It's very realistic, and really lovely, and if I hadn't found a partial and had blind-bottled it instead, I would not have been disappointed. I'm thrilled to have some of this in my collection!

    Peach Chypre

    Of the two peach fundraiser scents, Peach Chypre is the one I prefer. I get the peach with the oakmoss and bergamot of the chypre the most (and I am beginning to think my skin likes to amp bergamot). And while Fae also has peach, oakmoss, and bergamot, I prefer Peach Chypre over that one, too. Just think of Le Coucher de La Mariee HG with peach instead of vanilla, and you've got Peach Chypre. I'll be hanging on to my decant and pairing it with the above mentioned hair gloss.

    Impeachment

    My experience with this was different from everyone else's. The peach in this was actually pretty fleeting on me; it was there at first, with a bit of honey, but the frankinense and oudh (which was not an indolic variety) quickly became the main players, making this primarily a resinous scent on me with just a hint of peach. I guess my skin just decided to amp the resins in this one.

    Hunter Moon 2019

    I wanted the Hunter Moon 2019 shirt, and so I made myself get a decant of the scent to go along with it, even though I have a tendency to amp the Lab's wine note. I just feel like I have to try the scent if I am going to wear the shirt. Well, Hunter Moon 2019 is wine-dominant on me for several hours of wear, but I find the mulled wine to be far more pleasant than a straight up red wine note. It's very lightly spiced, for those concerned about a possible spicy wine note. Behind the wine, there's a touch of dry leaves (not cologne-y or bell pepper-y, thank goodness) and cool (but not cold or minty) air along with a bit of musk. But the wine is by far the star here. There's a wisp of bonfire smoke after the wine has calmed down somewhat (after five hours of wear), but I had to go looking for it. Overall, Hunter Moon is a nice mulled wine scent. It's not something I need more of, but I am glad that I decided to try it.

    Palo Santo & Sandalwood

    Palo Santo and Sandalwood features a minty palo santo note that gives way to a dry sandalwood. The description fits the scent perfectly; I just wish the palo santo, which was dominant at first, wasn't so quick to retreat to the background on me. For those wondering how this compares to Palo Santo and Frankincense, this does not feature the strong anise note found in that blend, and the palo santo is more prominent here. I feel like this scent is more comforting. I'm going to hang on to my decant, but I don't think I need more of this one.

    Frostbitten Malice

    This was all pine-y snow on me, the same snow note found in scents like Frostbitten Zombi, NYC Snowball Fight, Snow Bunny, and Marshmallow Snow Bath Oil. Unfortunately, that is all that I get from this. The notes from Malice don't come out on me at all. They're all buried far beneath the pine-laden snow. I'm really surprised that Malice's clove didn't show up on me!

    Tumbling Over a Ghost

    This starts out with the pine, ivy, and dirt being the strongest notes on me, with the green notes being more prominent than the dirt. The candle wax really is just a dribble; it joins in once the scent is dry and adds a light sweetness to the scent that I really enjoy. The moss and dirt notes gain strength on me over time and end up being the dominant notes on me after several hours of wear, making me think of Zombi without the rose. The candle wax, ivy, and evergreen notes are still present, but they remain background players. I skipped Weenies in 2016 when I was living in Germany, but if I had ordered a bottle of this, I would not have been disappointed. I'll be hanging on to my decant.

    Petite Planchette

    Petite Planchette is primarily a honeyed resin blend on me. I agree with Missanneshirleyofgg that there is something in this similar to The Magician's Wand (perhaps the polished woods), but this has honey instead of The Magician's Wand unlisted vanilla musk note. The honey, frankincense, and polished woods are the strongest notes on me. Unfortunately, it ends up going sour on me after a while, which I suspect is due to the honey note. It was pretty nice before it turned, though, so I am going to put this aside and retest it just in case it was a hormonal fluke.

    The Snack Hut

    Cherry slushie gives way to cherry chapstick on me. It has an unfortunate, plastic-y undertone on me. The plastic ends up going away after a while, reverting back to just cherry slushie. It was nice to be able to try this, but I just cannot deal with the plastic-y chapstic phase of the scent, so I will be passing it on to someone who will hopefully have better luck with this.

    Cacao & Clove

    In the vial, I smell the cocoa along with the clove, but on me, it is mostly CLOVE with a little bit of cocoa lingering in the background. This is a dusty, yet sweet clove, not as bold as black clove, and not cinnamon-ed like the Indonesian Clove SN. I think this is nice, but I am glad that I did not leap for a bottle of it when I already have Sweet Clove SN.

    Miss Forcible

    I tried The Other Miss Forcible year's ago, without having gotten to try the original scent first, so I was interested in seeing how the two compare. While The Other Miss Forcible smelled like sticky buns in a cobweb-strewn old lady's house, the original scent smells like an old woman that has just come home from a night out at the theater. She has adorned herself with an array of fabrics and doused herself liberally in a classic floral musk to ensure her presence is noticed whenever she enters a room. She invites you into her home, and as she throws off her scarf, you can smell the perfume on it as it flies through the air and crumples onto the couch. She sits across from you in a tall, old chair and tells you to help yourself to the candy that's sitting in a glass jar on the table. When you go to open the jar, you notice that there's a layer of dust on it, and all of the hard candy within is stuck together. You manage to pry one candy away from its brethren and pop it in your mouth, but alas! It is licorice-flavored! You make yourself eat it because you are determined to be polite, but the scent of the anise along with the strong musk is a little too much for you. She extends an invitation for tea next week, which you gladly accept, because she's a really nice lady, and you enjoy chatting with her, even though you wish she'd apply her perfume with a lighter hand. You decide that next time, you'll forego the candy jar and bring over some baked goods for the occasion. Miss Forcible's fragrance perfectly befits her character, although the anise and musk combo are not for me.

    Theáomai

    This is predominantly a chocolate scent. The chocolate chip cookie note reads to me like hot cocoa more than anything else, and it is the star throughout the show. I get a bit of fizzy soda from this after a few hours of wear, but I was never able to pick out any pretzels or caramel corn. I think this is nice, but I am not sure how often I would reach for it over my other cocoa scents.

    Books

    Books features a soft leather note with vanillic, tonka-sweetened pages that become sweeter on me with wear. I agree that this is a fresh book scent, not that of an ancient, dusty tome. This is one of those book scents where the pages are not completely overpowered by the leather, and for that, I am thankful. This is really lovely. If you like The Book from the Paranorman line, you may like Books as well (due to the page to leather ratio... but they are not the same scent). I think I need more of this. Thank you to the kind soul that sent me a sample of this after I missed out on a bottle.

    The Lurid Library

    Year unknown. I'm always down to try a book scent, but alas, this one was not very bookish to me, either in the vial, or on the skin. It mostly read as cologne with a poof of powdery musk, but the incense aspect became more noticeable over time. I wish I had gotten the old books scent that some other reviewers experienced! This is not for me, but I'm really glad I got to try it, and I'm looking forward to trying the pumpkin patch variant from this year's Weenies.
