  1. I love The Emathides (black amber, black orchid, black currant, olive blossom, wood violet, lavender, blue musk, rose attar, and cedar), has anyone tried any GC scents that are similar?

    What do bottles and labels look like?

    Me too!!!!!
  3. I do have Hex (& I love it!), what a great idea, thanks!!!
  4. I'm going to be wearing a sexy red riding hood outfit for a costume party & I'm not sure what BPAL to wear, sexy & foresty or sweet & sexy?

    Anything that smells like silage?

    I agree with IronMollyBlack, I live in the middle of Illinois so I know my corn. Fresh cornfields are sweet & green, dry fields are warm husks with dusty dirt (my favorite!), fermented corn can smell like manure if left around too long, but fresh silage is extremely sweet & slightly yeasty.

    White and "Light" Musk Recommendations

    I love patchouli, so honey, musk & pachouli together sounds wonderful although the tuberose scares me a little.

    White and "Light" Musk Recommendations

    Thanks ivyandpeony, I wasn't sure if I should post this under musks so I just started a new thread. The only ones I've tried from your list are Anactoria (fresh it was too sharp on me, but maybe I should try it again now that's it had time to age), Bengal (didn't work to well 'cuz I really amp cinnamon) & Judith & Holofornes which I adore! I'm definitely going to try Les Bijoux, Aghrat-Bat-Mahlat, Bilquis, Schlafende Bagneuse & Harikata.

    White and "Light" Musk Recommendations

    I am in LOVE with honey musk, but I've only found three BPAL blends with it; The Illustrated Woman, Lady Una & Freak Show. Does anyone know if there's more I'm missing?

    Tobacco scents

    How about The Antikythera Mechanism, it is divine.

    Where is this scent?

    It's under A Picnic in Arkham: Y'HA-NTHLEI We shall swim out to that brooding reef in the sea and dive down through black abysses to Cyclopean and many-columned Y'ha-nthlei, and in that lair of the Deep Ones we shall dwell amidst wonder and glory for ever. A great undersea metropolis located below Devil's Reef. A swirling, lightless, effervescent scent: the deepest marine notes with bergamot, eucalyptus and foamy ambergris.
  12. I'm wearing The Antikythera Mechanism today & the dry down, when the vanilla & tobacco show up, is very similar to the vanilla & tobacco in Black Lace.
  13. Death Cap is one of my favorites, it smells like dirt & incense on me.
