    Abalone Vulva

    Ooooh I love this. I agree that it smells like iridescent pink mermaid musk. I think the pink musk is grapefruit-based. Sugared, sparkling, mermaid-esque grapefruit musk to my nose. It's clean, sweet, elegant, and mood-lifting.

    Why I Love Thee? Hair Gloss

    This is beautiful. I get lots of oudh and heady purple florals, tempered by a lavender-scented breeze and a gust of fresh salt air. The oudh is on the indolic side of the spectrum, but the lavender and salt breeze keeps it in check.

    Neko No Koi Hair Gloss

    Ooh this is nice. I get mostly sweet, sticky, true-to-life, non-funky honey, and a dusting of dry, fragrant clove. A lovely combination.

    Hotaru No Yu Hair Gloss

    This is a beautiful spring floral scent---like a rain-soaked garden. I get lots of fresh lilac and a touch of honeysuckle nectar. I'm going to need a bottle of this one. ❤️

    Alleviate the Frenzy Hair Gloss

    I had trouble with this one in perfume oil form (which is totally my fault--i'm pretty sure it's due to hormones)--the amber took over and I was unable to smell anything else. In hair gloss form, however, I can smell the beautiful, glowing, sugared peach. It's really beautiful and now I'm wishing that the perfume oil would perform this way for me!

    Wild Cherry Chypre and Smoky Patchouli Hair Gloss

    This is a dark and brooding fruity scent. Really lovely. The cherry is dark and lush, made elegant by the chypre, and the patchouli lends some nice, rooty earthiness without overpowering the blend.

    Sweet Amber and Cherry Liqueur Hair Gloss

    Equal parts elegant, sparkling amber and deliciously tart and syrupy cherry liqueur.

    Maraschino Cherry Buttercream Hair Gloss

    As described, this is thick, syrupy maraschino cherries with a hint of fresh tartness (like artisanal maraschino cherries—not like the saccharine mass-produced ones), with a slick of rich buttercream.

    Frankincense, Copal and Cacao Home & Linen Spray

    Well this is interesting! It’s fresh and zippy, almost gingery, with some smooth, dry cacao warming up the background.

    Belgian Chocolate and Scorched Caramel Home & Linen Spray

    Huh! I did not expect to like this one—I’m not a fan of caramel because it tends to be so cloying (the candy and the scent), so I would not have selected this for myself. It’s super nice though! It’s not cloying—it’s a surprisingly mature chocolate scent. It sort of smells like the fanciest of s’mores being made at a cozy, roaring campfire. The Belgian chocolate is creamy and luxe, and the scorched note is wonderful.

    Morning Glories Bath Oil

    This reminds me of something that I’ve smelled before, but I can’t put my finger on it. It’s beautiful—perfect for spring. It is very green as the review above mentioned, with a kiss of elegance from the amber. The florals are few-soaked in a carpet of lush green. The greenness is not soapy or sharp to my nose—it’s just right and lovely. This is a natural sort of scent, but would also be at home in a fancy perfumery, if that makes sense.

    Ehon Warai Jogo Bath Oil

    This is lovely! A beautiful peach scent for spring. It’s definitely white peach—kinda nectarine-ish and not super ripe. The honey and cream are not overwhelming or cloying—they lend a sort of nectar sweetness. At times I get a whiff of something that is almost bubblegummy. Beautiful.

    Chocolate Liquer Bath Oil

    Whoa. This was not on my radar at all because I don’t love liqueurs, but I sniffed one of the bottles I picked up for my decant circle and it’s really gorgeous. It smells like high dollar chocolate. It’s smooth but also has that “bite” that fancy cacao often has. It’s mostly rich, dark, and fudgey. I don’t really get a lot of the liqueur, but if I think about it I can smell a thread of syrupy sweetness tying the whole thing together. If you like rich chocolate scents, I highly recommend this one. I imagine it will be like bathing in a vat of the real thing!

    Lilith's Love Low

    A sharp blast of lavender eventually mellows into a lavender-vanilla cake with banana buttercream! I love this!

    Saturday Morning

    Bright, sunny lemongrass, with some creaminess from the coconut milk. This is happy blend reminiscent of sunshine!
