    Dwarf

    DWARF Iron filings and chips of stone, Styrian Golding hops, and soot-covered leather. On its own...Iron Fillings and stone....true from wet to drydown. Mixed with EVIL... IT IS AMAZING!!! I am definitely an Evil Dwarf.

    Honey, Black Fig, and Olibanum

    On me...this is a light very realistic honey. The olibanum keeps the honey in check and keeps it from going funky on my skin. This is not a sweaty honey, but a light, white honey to my nose. The black fig adds a nice dry fruity note to the perfume. This will get alot of wear in the summer inside my home. It's snuggly and close to the skin and not overwhelming at all.🥰🥰

    Red Apple and Dead Leaves

    [No additional description provided.] Dead Leaves is the prominent note. The red apple is secondary. Alas, the dead leaves is going to over take the gorgeous red apple note. *sigh*

    Your most evocative Halloween/Autumn scents 🎃

    In night when all colors are cast, four robbers and a ghost, the now walk in the cold.

    Apple IV

    Red apple with blackcurrant bud, black clove, and vanilla bourbon. Alas, This apple is not for me. It smells like a green honey crisp apple on my skin. And that's all. No vanilla bourbon. No clove. No Nothin. I am going to keep this for another couple of days and then smell it again...if it continues to be like this...it is going up on the sales block. ETA: After giving this a day to rest, the other notes become apparent. It starts off as a green apple, and then the vanilla bourbon and clove poke through and then poof, my skin eats it. I think aging will help this greatly b/c right now it has no staying power at all.

    Groan of Mortal Terror

    Presently I heard a slight groan, and I knew it was the groan of mortal terror. It was not a groan of pain or of grief oh, no! it was the low stifled sound that arises from the bottom of the soul when overcharged with awe. I knew the sound well. Many a night, just at midnight, when all the world slept, it has welled up from my own bosom, deepening, with its dreadful echo, the terrors that distracted me. I say I knew it well.

 Opaque grey amber and opoponax swelling up like thick smoke, pressed under the weight of baleful tobacco. The grey amber, opoponax and smoke blend really well. The tobacco gets strong for a minute and then it backs off and you are left with this mildly sweet tobacco and grey amber scent. This will age well and is extremely well blended. I love it!

    The Setting Sun

    The augurs brought forward the victims for him to make his final sacrifice before his entry into the Senate Room. It was manifest that the omens were unfavourable. The augurs substituted one animal after another in the attempt to secure a more auspicious forecast. Finally they said that the indications from the gods where unfavourable and that there was plainly some sort of curse hiding in the victims. In disgust, Caesar turned away toward the setting sun, and the augurs interpreted this action still more unfavourably. The assassins were on hand and were pleased at all this. Nicolaus of Damascus Darkness falling, shadows cast by prophesies unheeded: black oudh and amber. Wet: The amber and oude are separate entities. Strong, and very much there. Dry: Unlike our current political climate and poor Caesar, they come to an agreement and blend beautifully. Dry it's ambery oude, dark and slightly seductive. This bottle is worth keeping.

    John Watson

    Tweed and crisp linen, lime-tinged aftershave, the sleek steel and oil of a well-cared for service revolver, and a memory's echo of a Jezail bullet shell. Watson is a smooth operator. The lime, after shave oil, and linen blend into a sweet yet subtle perfume. I love it. It can be a little powdery at first on my skin...(my skin amps powder) but don't be afraid. This mature, critical thinker, is definitely a delicious man to be reckoned with. I am sure...that layered with Sherlock...this will be the perfect scent.

    Catch Me, Dad

    Sun-warmed dirt and wildflowers, a whiff of the lavender Lilith loves to use in her hair, and the green leaves of summer just turning to autumn's russet and brown. Wet: Fresh Lavender and green leaves. Fresh green leaves that you would find a child rolling in a pile. Dry: Lavender and green leaves. It's uncanny how realistic this is. Puddin and Beth: thank you for sharing your memories of Lilith with us through scent. This is beautiful.

    Champagne and Party Hats

    In the bottle: Champagne and Cake Dried down: Gentle wafts of champagne with cake. White cake with alcoholic notes to it. I wish I had some champagne cake to eat right now.

    Fighter

    FIGHTER Leather, musk, blood, and steel. Wet: All ye leather fiends...rejoice! This is beautiful brown leather...fresh...on me its kind of like the leather from Brom Bones without the cologne note. There is the barest hint of metal in this...but it really is a clean leather with metal. Drydown: Leather with the clean metal and now the musk kicks in. Thankfully it doesn't really overtake the leather...it kind of compliments it..and there is the faintest tang of blood. This is gorgeous. And an immediate bottle purchase.

    Half-Elf

    HALF-ELF White sandalwood, beeswax, white tea leaf, oud, and a hint of sophisticated urban musk. Wet: Bitter...woodsy...and leaves. Drydown: Soft leather, woods...and a hint of leaves. I think it's the musk and beeswax that is giving this a leafy feel. I am going half elf with good and see what happens. With good this was a no go. The beeswax just stomped all of the Half-elf goodness out. BUT...with evil. Seductive naughty sex in the woods on a bed of leaves with a half-elf dressed in soft gorgeous leather.
  13. [No additional description provided.] Red apple, with a dash of candied pineapple and green tea! Alas, the skin eats the dang pineapple and I am left with green tea with a drop of red apple. *sigh*

    Weed & Whiskey

    I agree with Poenari...upon first whiff it makes my teeth hurt. Cheap whiskey and weed. But now...the whiskey blends beautifully with the weed. On a non-headache day this will be wonderful.

    Doleful Pipe Organ

    This is such an accurately odd scent. I grew up in churches with a pipe organ and this smells like it's a freshly oiled organ. It has a light metallic sweetness to it. And it is lovely. I would like a couple of more decants to fill my bottle, but I will reach for this one when I want something completely different.

    Bookcase Passage

    Too much leather, not enough wood polish. My skin just amped the book leather and it gave me a headache.

    Cracked Mirrors

    This smells like the spookier, lightly sweeter version of House of mirrors. I love this scent. Spooky Glass for the win.

    King Mandarin

    King Mandarin is a refreshing, tart, opulent citrus oil. The scent is uplifting and cheering and creates a strong sense of well-being. It is a relaxing fragrance that promotes sensuality through delight. Fresh: Orange peel. Fresh Orange peeled from the top so you can still smell the greenest part of the orange and the peel. Dry: Flat, long lasting, strong orange mixed with a lot of peel. Not a fan. So glad this is going to a new home.

    Ezekiel's Phoenix

    EZEKIEL’S PHOENIX Another living creature we saw, full wondrous, such as man has never seen; ’twas near in scope to twice the eagle’s size, with plumage iridescent, rainbow-hued. Its breast appeared deep-dyed with purple’s shade, its legs were red like ochre, and its neck was furnished round with tresses saffron-hued; like a coxcomb did its crest appear, with amber-tinted eye it gazed about, the pupil like some pomegranate seed. Exceeding all, its voice pre-eminent; of every wing’d thing, the king, it did appear. For all the birds, as one, in fear did haste to follow after him, and he before, like some triumphant bull went striding forth with rapid step apace. - Ezekiel the Tragedian, the Exagoge Its breast appeared deep-dyed with purple’s shade, its legs were red like ochre, and its neck was furnished round with tresses saffron-hued; like a coxcomb did its crest appear, with amber-tinted eye it gazed about, the pupil like some pomegranate seed: wild plum, North African saffron, frankincense, pomegranate, limonite accord, and golden amber. I don't know what God or Goddess Beth invoked to create this scent...but THANK YOU!!! This is a delicious amber, pomegranate and saffron scent. It is fruity...but not sweet. Slightly incensy, and the saffron is not overpowering. This I NEED!!!!!!

    Gnome

    GNOME An explosive blend of effervescent golden ginger and black peppercorn with sarsaparilla, gurjum balsam, nutmeg, gear lubricant, and smoke. Hot damn! A ginger I can wear!!!!! This smells like a sweet spicy ginger ale with smoke and black peppercorn! I think the sarsaparilla gives it the fizzy kick. I just love it. From wet to drydown...that's all I get. This is pretty good....and also a right day kind of scent....meaning if I wear this on the wrong day...it will make me sick. A little bit goes a long way! I am going to have to get a bottle in the next order. I can't wait to play with this one and mix with the other RPG scents!

    Pumpkin Smut

    Wet: smut and the insides of a freshly cut pumpkin. Dry.. freshly cut pumpkin. My skin ate the smut!

    Cracked Mirrors

    This is gorgeous. It smells like glass...I guess that's the amber and then I know this will sound weird but it smells like there is a crack. Like something off with the glassy amber. That's what's the visual I get when I wear it... perhaps it's the silvery note on the final drydown..but either way.. it's lovely.

    Bookcase Passage

    This smells like a freshly bound leather book sitting a top polished bookcase made of fancy wood. I love it!💕💕

    A Witch Riding on a Dragon

    Jan de Bisschop Blackened tonka, patchouli, dragon's blood resin, and scorched oak. This is absolutely beautiful. The light sweet powdery of tonka calms the patchouli of the dragon and the oak just rounds it out beautifully. This scent is so well blended that I can't believe the notes listed. I just adore it! So, so glad I bought it.

    The Magician’s Wand

    Energy, will, and the manifested Word of the Magus. It is the generative process, the act of creation: ash, rowan, oak, and elder wood, polished with sweet resins but handworn, glowing with inner fire. From wet to dry, this a lighter version of Antkythera Mechanism, with a lighter wood. I imagine the mop with Mickey smells like this!
