    Black Julbocken Alchemy Lab

    Sweet, fuzzy musk with a trail of something not quite pine....miseltoe maybe. It's a gentle complement to the musk. Now I'm getting soft greens, which I'm attributing to the moss or sage Very light blend, wish there was stronger throw. A very light musk scent with woods in the background. Like if you wore your favorite sweater outside in the fresh air. Hours later becomes a warm skin musk scent. I would've liked the greens to stay longer. Still, this is a really cozy blend.

    Teapot Full of Angst

    Black tea with almond! For a second there's a note that almost smells like bread, then quickly evaporates. This is mostly calming black tea with a touch of lemon peel. I always underrate tea scents and forget how good they are. This is a keeper.

    Burn Pile 2022

    This straight up smells like I doused myself in a campfire. Authentic! Might even be better with some woodsy scent layered on top to give you that realistic camped in the woods smell. If you love smoky scents this is obviously a must buy. If you don't......steer clear, lol. I get more of the paper note and peppercorn as this calms down. Reminds me a lot of TRex by Zoologist, like a second cousin. I was expecting a loud scent but this sticks very close to the skin.

    Death of the Grave Digger

    Another imp I've owned forever and never reviewed. This starts out with a rich, wonderful dirt note along with the "cold" snow notes which come across as lightly minty. After a few hours, the myrrh and opoponax completely take over the scent. It's nice, but it doesn't project too far. Worth keeping the imp, as it's a good winter/fall scent.

    Sleepy Moon

    The perfect sleeptytime scent. I rarely wear the same perfume more than once, but Sleepy Moon has ended up in my regular rotation. I love the coolness of the bamboo pulp and how it complements the chamomile and lavender. Knocks me right out, A+.

    Perchta

    I've owned this for 14 years and never reviewed it so here we go: Strong pine and a blast of florals. Getting a lot of cool notes which can be attributed to the snow note here. Several hours in and Florals have faded to something soft and light. The snow note has come out more and the pine note has receeded. Now i remember why I liked this one!

    The fig, vanilla and patchouli all blends so beautifully. It's a truly winning combo and works great in fall. I haven't worn this in a few years but it's as rich and comforting as I remember. Suprisingly light throw.

    An Enchanted Cellar with Animals

    Right on the skin I get clean, watery herbs. A lot of frankincense smoke, which tickles my nose. Don't get anything fur or feather-like yet. 2 hours in it smooths out and I'm getting the clay and wet stone. This is pretty! I was worried it would turn out like Witches Kitchen, which sadly did not work on me, but no! It's watery clay and stones with a light touch of frankincense and sage. I'll hang on to this bottle and see if it develops as it ages.

    Witches’ Kitchen

    Hmmm, a lot more menthol-y than I expected. Better let this brew sit longer. I was hoping this would be more castoreum-forward since it's a rare note in the BPAL catalogue, but I don't detect a whiff of it. Mostly nose-burning vetiver and a very herbal brimstone (or gunpowder). An hour later the menthol note persists. I hate to say this about a new blend, but so far this is not the kind of scent I would wear and I don't care for the menthol notes at all. I will say though that for such a heavy sounding blend this is suprisingly light. Okay, nearly 4 hours in the menthol smell has died out, and I'm left with a super light, herbal smell. It's not bad, but it's nothing that differentiates it from other herbal blends. Light throw. I will age this for at least 6 months and see if any of the other notes come out before I decide if I want to sell it.

    Tahitian Landscape

    If you like tropical scents (I do!) you'll love this one. The coconut just functions to smooth out the blend so that the flowers stay warm and soft-smelling and it never veers into screechy or soapy territory. I get a lot of orchid and tahitian gardenia, which is just what I was hoping for, and some of that luscious fruit-like frangipani too. This has a small to moderate amount of throw. I'm glad I got a full bottle of this to add to my tropical collection.

    Summer Rain

    Lavender and coconut give this fragrance a nice softness that's not foodie. It compliments the rain/herb notes really well and it gives it an almost photorealistic concrete smell. This is a keeper! I suspect it will get even better with age, but it's really lovely just as it is fresh. A decent amount of throw too.

    Cherry Red

    Maraschino cherry is a hard top note to keep in the skin for very long, so I'm not surprised when it fades after an hour. After the bright sweetness of the cherry has faded, you're left with a soft, sugary red musk (a plus if you like the Lab's musk) which is nice. I was hoping for the cherries to stay longer, but I have Marashino cherry and Champagne for that I suppose. It's still a really pretty, smooth blend and it lasts for 4-5 hours on the skin until it fades. I still get little wafts here and there from where I applied it on my neck.

    Pumpkin V (2008)

    These days I like my foodie scents to be more complex than just...well....food. This definitely fits the bill. Pumpkin is detectable, but it fades and the fig, cranberry and rosey-frankincense come to the forefront. This is beautifully complex and very much a fall scent. I ended up selling a bunch of my pumpkin-heavy scents because it's not my preference these days but I"ll happily hang on to this bottle. Sillage is decent, fades after a few hours, but still stays on skin for many hours.

    Flowers in a Grotesque Vase

    At first application, I'm getting the mild smell of wildflowers, lilies and Iris. It's a nice, sharp floral blend. No opoponax that I can detect, which usually smells rather incense-y. After an hour the blend starts to go soapy on me, which comes from the lilies and iris together. This might be off-putting for some. But I notice that the soapiness is only with my nose to my wrist up close, less so in the sillage which remains a bright and pleasant floral. At the 5 hour mark, the soapiness fades and the perfume goes back to a mild, pretty floral. I'm going to let this bottle age a while longer, since I've only had it for a week and see if it develops.

    Blacklight Reactive Grim Reaper Poster

    Ooo, this is really nice. The patchouli and the cannabis meld together so one is pretty indistinguishable from the other. Despite the notes here, it's not super heavy. Hours in everything melds together nicely, with the champaca and leather combining with the rest to create a hazy, smokey blend. I don't get any eucalyptus leaf, but that just could be that it gets eaten by the other notes. Not a ton of throw, but I also applied pretty sparingly. It lasts all day though, and there's a faint musky hint of it at end end of the day. Very happy with my bottle.
