    Andradite Phoenix

    If you ever imagined how garnet would smell, this is it. Soft red musk, a touch of sweetness and something that its not sharp but a note that reminds me the toughness of the stone. Maybe the mahogany. It's just amazing.

    Cedarwood & Smoked Vanilla

    This is wonderful. The cedarwood does not turn to pencils shavings on me. The vanilla floats in the background and makes the description of this scent dead on: Dry and husky-sweet. This is an inoffensive warm scent that will do well with a little age and then be worn on cold days where I want to feel warm and dry outside and sweet and soft when I get home. It's not cuddly, but it is lovely.
  3. Hi there! Trying to message you about Sadak at the Waters of Oblivion, but it looks like you can't receive messages now? PM me if you can?

    Wet: It smells like lightening and water. It definitely has a tinge of ozone and then there comes the mint. This glorious mild mint, with ozone, and water and lightening. It is legitimately magical!

    Dead Leaves, Balsam, Olibanum, and Tonka Bean

    This was the scent I chose based on instinct and the notes. I was not disappointed. Wet: It all smells like the tonka, olibanum and the damn dead leaf/cologne note are fighting for supremacy. Dry: These notes blend beautifully. The olibanum is not heavy, the tonka keeps it sweet and the leaf note behaves. I am going to age b/c I know it will be fantastic in a few months!!!

    Amour Fou

    This smells like a nice brown leather binder sat in some moss and flowers in the woods. It's lovely!
  7. Dark Alice


    This is like walking in a well kept library with leather bound books in a fancy city like Venice. It's lovely from wet to dry. Partial needed.

    Mourning Eye

    Stick your head in a fresh vase of lilacs and that's all you get. I amp lilac and this is a fresher version but still a headache inducer.
  9. Dark Alice


    Saltwater, sea glass. It smells like I am eating glass. The notes give me a headache. But it's is dead on accurate.

    Forget Me Not

    It never fails with rice powder, I smell like rose scented rice from Uncle Ben's. The rice even smells buttery FFS. I can't win. But at least I smell like fancy rice.

    Dragon Squad

    Legit, wet this smells like a peach farted on my skin. Just farted peach. Dry, the vanilla, amber and cacao come to life with a very small hint of peach. I like it, but I don't know if I will keep it.

    Protect Yer Self

    This sums up my experience succinctly. This was essential in getting through the retrograde from hell in July. And now another comes upon us again. I will be getting a lot of wear out of it daily!

    Cardamom & Coconut

    I smell like a cookie without the sugar, butter, and foodie notes! It's heavenly coconut and cardamom with the final drydown of light, sweet cardamom. SO GLAD I GOT A BOTTLE!
