    Fudge Marshmallow

    This is exactly as advertised - rich dark fudgy chocolate (it reminds me of the Yule scent Lump of Coal) with soft fluffy marshmallows underneath. This is close to the skin with a light throw. YUM!

    Sugar Cookie Snow White

    This is pretty much an even mix of cookies and Snow White. It's an unusual combination, but it works beautifully and is absolutely delicious!

    Sugar Cookie Peacock Queen

    This starts off with the heady red rose of The Peacock Queen softened by a little sugar. It stays sugary red rose for a while, then dries down to cookies with rose. This has moderate throw and longevity. It's quite pretty!

    Cranberry Mango Pumpkin Floss

    I get a nice balance of juicy mango and slightly-tart cranberry, then my skin sucks up those notes and I get sweet cotton candy in the drydown. I didn't pick up on any pumpkin. The candy floss note is different from the past Pumpkin Floss scents I've tried, there is no spice notes and it's a bit sweeter. I tested this straight out of the mailbox, and my skin is dry and cold today. I'm hoping the fruit notes come out more with age, but otherwise this is a fun scent.

    Floral Sheet Ghost

    This starts off strawberry and peony, then moves onto a lovely rose note (not perfumey or sour), then dries to rose and a little carnation. I didn't pick up any pineapple, but maybe that will come with age. I tested this straight out of the mailbox, and I really like it so far. ETA: After this settled a bit, the sugared pineapple came out in the wet stage. It made the scent more balanced in fruit and floral, yum!

    Cacao and Sugared Roses

    This is lovely, and yes, it is sugared sweet roses with a dusting of cacao. The cacao note doesn't last too long on me, it's mostly rose and sugar. The throw and staying power is moderate. This is very similar to Love, as mentioned above, and even more similar to Fuzzy Pink Handcuffs (both of which are favourites of mine). It's nothing like the previous Lupercalias of Cacao-Dusted Rose Petals or Quartre from the Dozen of Roses collection. Both those are red rose notes, this is a sweeter pink rose.

    Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Buns

    This starts off all cinnamon bun - lots of bakery cinnamon, a little icing, a little pastry. The pumpkin spice note comes in as it dries. I didn't get pumpkin, just clove and nutmeg mingling with the cinnamon. The throw and staying power are moderate right now, but I'm sure this will age well. YUM.

    Cacao-Dusted Rose Petals

    This is mostly a gorgeous rose note, neither too sweet nor perfumey, with the lightest hint of cacao. The throw and staying power are moderate. Although this has almost the same description as Une Douzaine de Roses: Quatre (Cacao-dusted red rose petals), it's not the same! The rose in that is very full-bodied and red, the rose in this year's scent is soft and gentle.

    Wild Rose & Cherry

    This is a simple but lovely scent. It's a mix of a slightly sweet, slightly perfumey rose note with a natural (ie, not medicinal) red cherry note. The rose is stronger initially then the two notes blend together in the dry down. The throw and wear-length are moderate. I really like this! It reminds me a bit of last year's Strawberry and Rosebud. It's not at all similar to Une Douzaine de Roses: Un (cherry-dipped rose candy) since it smells more like fresh-picked roses and ripe cherries off the tree.

    The Poinsettia Gown

    This is so pretty and girly and elegant. It starts off with lots of cream, some jasmine, and hints of rose and amber (white amber, I think). It eventually settles down to a creamy, fluffy vanilla scent with light floral and amber notes.

    Frostbitten Alice

    Snow White and Alice and two of my favourite perfumes, so I was very excited about this! Frostbitten Alice starts off with a lot of carnation and a little vanilla-snow. After a while, the carnation fades out, and I get vanilla-snow with a hint of milky honey. The throw is moderate and the staying power is medium. This is a very well-blended Frostbitten scent, Alice isn't buried under all the snow.

    Fall, Leaves, Fall

    This starts off with maple leaves then dries to rose and blackcurrant with a lovely soft musk note. I don't get any oudh. The throw is light and it lasts a few hours. This is a very pretty scent, it smells early autumn when the leaves just start to fall.
  13. TheIceMaiden

    The Empty Coffin

    This starts off with plenty of oud and a lovely red rose note underneath. It stays oud and roses with only a hint of the sandalwood in the drydown. The throw is moderate and the staying power is pretty good. I really like this, it reminds me a little of Seance & Between Your Heart and Mine, both of which are two of my favourite rose perfumes. I usually don't care for oudh, but the oud blanc note is smoother and less potent than the typical oudh.

    Strawberry and Rosebud

    This is a lovely scent! The strawberry note is juicy and realistic (very similar to the strawberry in Eat the Strawberries) and the rose is soft and a little perfumey. I'm not sure what kind of rose this is as it is not as heady as a red rose or as sweet as a pink rose. It's somewhere in-between. I love this scent and wish I had gotten more than one bottle!
  15. Sometimes, all I want to do is to hold her and enjoy her warmth. I love her, and she is the best part of me. Sugared rose and orange blossom.  This is an even mix of a sugared pink rose (very similar to the rose note in Fuzzy Pink Handcuffs) and sugared orange blossom. It isn't overly sweet and the throw and staying power are moderate (although that will probably improve with age.) I love this scent and I'm so glad I blind bottled it.
