    Gingerbread and Lavender Sugar

    Gingerbread & Lavender Sugar In the Bottle: Sweet lavender, but not in an "herby" way, like candied - creamed lavender On My Skin, Wet: Sugar!! SUGAR!! ... Mellows out quickly, then I get that lovely sweet lavender again - it does have a creamy quality to it, without invoking dairy though (which is nice, IMHO) I detect just a tiny amount spice, it's like a waft coming from another room On My Skin, Dry: Creamy sweet lavender, with a pop of spice here and there. The spice is not quite 'gingerbread' but it does have ginger characteristics, just not the bread characteristics....maybe a bit of aging is in order. Verdict: I this one! I just adore the Lab's Lavender note, and I eat my weight in gingerbread treats this season - seemed like a perfect match for a Yule offering (and it is!) BPTP - if you are reading this - this perfume would make a PHENOMENAL hair gloss! ::hint, hint, nudge, nudge::

    Bonfire Toffee

    Our spin on a traditional Guy Fawkes Night treat: treacle toffee soaked in rich, dark bourbon. I wasn't sure what 'Treacle' was (or is, honestly). But this scent sounded interesting and different from other Halloweenies. In the Bottle: Dark boozy caramel On my Skin, Wet: A burst of what smells a little bit like burnt coffee with a touch of smoke. Carries some kind of a sweet note with it. On my Skin, Dry: Dark sweet molasses with a faint waft of smoke. It's not listed, but I detect a very small note of chocolate or cocoa. This scent reminds me of a childhood dessert that I can't place. Verdict: It IS different from other Halloweenies in my collection, and I love that it is a sweet but broody perfume. I may buy a backup bottle of this one.

    A Sweet Sleep Hair Gloss

    This one is gorgeous! I get a lovely combination of the pear, lavender, and some blend of vanilla, bergamot and sandalwood. It's very soft, but has a good amount of staying power. It strikes me as a very feminine version of Dorian tbh.

    White Pumpkin Floss

    This is equal parts white, creamy chocolate and subtly spiced soft pumpkin

    Singularly At Ease

    The officers were satisfied. My manner had convinced them. I was singularly at ease. They sat, and while I answered cheerily, they chatted of familiar things. But, ere long, I felt myself getting pale and wished them gone. My head ached, and I fancied a ringing in my ears: but still they sat and still chatted. Rum cakes and black tea, blueberry scones and biscuits. On my skin, wet: Kinda sour, a little bit boozy On my skin, dry: Boozy fruity muffins After several hours: Sugary fruity muffins with a splash of booziness
  6. With a dribble of caramel and flecks of white sugar. The Post has made yet another spectacular hair gloss with this one! It smells like fresh, caramel drizzled apple slices with a squirt of sweet crystalizzed lemon. Buying backups of this one too. ::snuggles gloss and goblins::

    Blueberry Pumpkin Muffins Hair Gloss

    Muffiny! Pumpkiny! Big oozy lumps of blueberry! I FREAKING LOVE THIS! It's just as advertised, blueberry pumpkin muffins! I get sugary sweet blueberries, just barely spiced pumpkin, and a good douse of bakery muffin smell. definitely back-up worthy, as I see myself wearing this ALOT!

    October Claw Polish

    October is just amazing! It is a true copper-bronze and the formula is thick but not gloopey I have been using it as a pedicure color, and it's amazing on my pale, almost translucent, skintone *

    Ein Kuss von Krampus

    This is a beautiful color - to me it's got more of a reddish brown & gold glitz tone to it, but I don't apply more than 1 medium coat. I would also classify this one as more of a Halloweenie color than Yule, but it's very pretty all the same.

    Dusky Shroud

    Is the more grown up version of El Dia De Reyes, or perhaps an older cousin. Less chocolate, more coffee. It's predominantly coffee, but it has a smokey and barely sweet quality to it. This one is more subtle on me than the Reyes blend, but still quite noticeable after several hours.

    SNOWBLIND CLAW POLISH This is a gorgeous silvery-blue glitter! It's got an 'Icy' quality to it from a color perspective. This is my first GLITTER polish from the goblins, and it's texture is more gel-like than I was expecting. I enjoy it as a sparkly layer over a solid color underneath. I am currently wearing OPI's I Am what I Amethyst under SNOWBLIND, and it's a cold looking pedicure.

    Tea and Music

    This one is glorious! On me, it's a rich sweet tea, with peeks at the mahogany leather! It's pretty straightforward to me, but it's components are deep and luscious. This one might end up being backup bottle worthy!

    In the Wild North

    I also am getting some kind of mild fruit from this, which does a great job of keeping this blend from being too over the top green and snowy. It is a gorgeous blend of cold, crisp greenery and sparkling white snow and ice. Those berries (?) make this blend interesting beyond pure wintery coldness.

    New Snow in the Avenue

    Edvard Munch Ribbons of wild plum, French lavender, and calla lily rolling over hills of thick snow. This one is gorgeous! It's rich purple plums, and cold,cold florals. The plums are juicy, moderately sweet but not sugary or reminiscent of honey either. The florals are just the right touch! They strike me as white and barely-there pinks and yellows. I don't get the snow note, but I'm sure it's what is causing the 'cold' effect on this scent. A very unique Yule!

    Pumpkin Sugar

    This one reminds me of pumpkin latte but minus the coffee note(s). it's sugary & pumpkiny!
