    Peach III

    Georgia peaches, madeira wine, mimosa, and Cherokee roses. Wet, the fruity/sweet boozy notes are very present in this blend, with the rose only a whiff in the background. As it dries, it stays very rich and sweet, but it's more a winey sweetness than a sugary or syrupy one, and the rose becomes a bit more present. Overall, this is a round, full, fruity blend that is somehow voluptuous and mouthwatering at the same time. Very nice.

    Flor De Muerto

    I don't like the scent of actual marigolds much, but this scent was a surprise hit out of my Weenie decants - a gorgeous, fresh, sunny, sweetly fragrant golden floral. I adore it.

    A World Where There Are Octobers

    I really wanted to love this scent because of the Anne of Green Gables reference (OMG, if there were an Anne of Green Gables GC section or LE group I would be FORCED to buy ALL THE BOTTLES) but alas, woody scents are always iffy on me, and this one is no different. Sigh. It just went in a way too men's-cologne direction on me.

    Alice in the Pumpkin Patch

    Really nice. The spiciness of Alice's carnations plays well with the pumpkin spice, and the creaminess goes well with the creamy pumpkin note. It would be a nice daytime pumpkin patch, in contrast to the more nighttime Snake Oil and Morocco pumpkins.

    Moroccan Pumpkin Patch

    A really delicious complex spicy fall scent. On me this one is really well-blended and not many notes emerge alone, it's more a spicy, exciting melange of yummitude.

    Wet and in the early drydown, this is a lovely, ethereal, hauntingly delicate white floral. Almost as lovely as my late lamented Moon Rose. Sadly, it started going powdery/soapy on me after an hour or so. I think I need another test before I decide whether to go full bottle, because I love the early stage SO MUCH.

    Snake Oil in the Pumpkin Patch

    So, regular Snake Oil doesn't work on me, but Snake Charmer does, so I had hope for this one. Indeed, the pumpkin makes it a touch foodier and mellower and less head-shoppy on me, like a Snake Charmer cousin, and makes it really nice. I still have a nearly full bottle of SC:Res, so I don't think I need a whole bottle of this one (especially since I am in love with a TON of Weenies this year) but I will definitely keep/age the imp to see how it matures.

    Dark Pumpkin Mead

    Thick sweet boozy honey pumpkin. I like the scent but it's too heavy for me to wear... it would be really nice as a room scent though.

    Autumn Fancies

    Nice, dry, grassy/woody. At least on my skin, it feels very masculine, but goes powdery on the drydown. I may have to test this on my husband to see if it works better for him.

    Goblin Market

    FRUIT! Fruit fruit fruit fruit fruit. Juicy plump fruit. Smells very pleasant to me but doesn't work on my skin, alas.

    Dorian in the Pumpkin Patch

    This smells amaaaaaazing. Dorian plus spicy warm creamy fall pumpkin goodness. I LOVE IT.

    The Dormouse

    Beautiful, fresh tea, with a sweetness that feels plant-y rather than sugary; lovely, light, versatile and refreshing. A real winner for me.

    Butterflies, Flowers and Jewels Attending

    My favorite of the Lilith scents this year. Very well-blended and pretty. It actually reminds me of Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle, but a version that I can actually wear without getting a headache. None of the notes really jump out on me, and it doesn't morph much; it's the same beautiful scent from beginning to end, lovely throughout. Definitely a bottle purchase for me.

    The Future Ball

    This one's a morpher; it starts out very resiny but then after an hour or so turns into a spicy rose with a little bit of sweet fruitiness underneath.

    Lilith's Bubblegum and Roses

    When I first put it on, it was SUPER sticky pink bubblegum, but as it dried it morphed into a really nice fresh pink rose scent. Not terribly long-lasting on me but a very nice rose variant; I think I'll be getting a bottle of this one.

    Lilith's Feel Better Flowers

    A pleasant herbal scent with a sweet undertone. The lavender comes out strongly but the other flowers keep it from being too strident as lavender sometimes is for me.

    Springtime Playfulness

    Bright, happy, pretty, juicy springtime flowers over fruit. A very lively and fun scent.

    The Creeping Mist

    Green, soft, clean, wet; a really nice daytime go-anywhere type of scent.
  19. ObliqueRed


    I get very little booze on this, just a huge, juicy, mouthwatering blast of CHERRY!! that very quickly fades and quiets down to a soft, sweet, deliciousness. Different but actually really nice and adding some fun variety to my keeper box.

    Sugar Skull

    It's definitely sugar, but I get a fruity/spicy undertone as well. It kind of reminds me of cinnamon gummies or some sort of Christmassy candied fruit. It's not an unpleasant smell, but it's not really for me- too strong and foody. The throw and strength are veeeeery potent on this one as well, so try a little bit on before you slather.

    La Bella Donna Della Mia Mente

    Soft, lush myrtle and dry, sweet melilot with wild rose, pomegranate juice and peach blossom against a background of deep aquatic notes and a twirl of melancholy autumn breezes. A wet, soft, pale, fruity floral. Very delicate and pretty. On me, none of the notes rise to the top noticeably.

    Oddly, on me this oil has a cool fresh/green coconut scent that reminds me a lot of Tarot: The Star. It's a really pleasant and mild smell.

    Sweet Lavinia's Dread Puddings

    Super-foodie: boozy, syrupy, spicy and bready, it smells like a good bread pudding tastes.

    Mother Shub's Gingerbread Temples

    Resiny, spicy, gingery; much more a baked ginger than a raw ginger, but not overly sweet. Nice and wearable.

    Rose Moon

    This smells really nice on me wet, but alas, on drydown it goes really powdery. I prefer the fresher/wetter rose blends.
