    Luke 10:25-37

    Reminds me of La Lugubre Gondola. Starts out quite dry clove on me, sweetens up a bit with the amber. Soft, resinous, very mildly sweet, wears close to the skin. Easy one to reach for.

    Fledgling Raptor Moon

    As expected, lots of woodsiness; dry and warm, subtle spice, and a lemony aspect. Gentle and comforting.

    A Savage Veil, Severe and Strong

    Plum and patch, bit of tobacco. It seems that this is the type of patch blend I've unknowingly been looking for. A lot of the vanilla patch blends I've tried have ended up too dry and gnarly for me, but this one is a beautiful mix of sweet and earthy to me.

    Vampire Lace

    I just dabbed this on to test, and have discovered the meaning of p'oudh. I really hope everyone above is right about this stage being fleeting, because dear lord, this is rough. 15 min: Something floralish covered in poop, but I'm getting hints of sugar in the throw. 30 min: Still sharp floralish poo, but a bit less poo-ey 1 hour: The poop is faint, but still present. Sharp, resiny, some floral 2 hours: No more poop, has smoothed out a little, but still reading as mainly sharp resiny floral to me. Wish I was getting the vanilla sweetness. Need to work up the courage to do a full test and see how it goes. Maybe after a longer rest. This is quite different so far from the other Laces I've tried.

    Loved To Death

    Not at all what I expected. Other beeswax blends I've tried don't go straight to honey, but this one does, to the point that it's reminding me a little of Womb Furie. Honey, wax, a hint of spice.

    Low-Hanging Junk

    I put this on next to Native Gold as it instantly seemed so similar - this reads as cola + tobacco for me, with Native Gold being root beer + tobacco. Love.

    Native Gold

    Quick test from mail - In the bottle, this is all delicious root beer. On skin, the tobacco quickly came forward; equal parts tobacco and root beer now. This is even more amazing than I imagined

    Hexennacht (2005, 2016, 2019)

    Comparing 2008 and 2020 Hexennacht ‘08 has always been an odd love affair for me - the scent really is sweat, smoke, and fir. It’s amazing and evocative and I love the heck out of it - but I don’t think I’ve ever worn it outside the house. 2020 impressions, fresh out of the mail - these are freshly showered witches in a forest I’m getting a more soapy scent along with the fir. I don’t love this like I do ‘08, and it certainly doesn’t conjure up the same image, but I could wear it out of the house without a second thought.

    Im so confused by this. I’m getting jasmine as well + red musk. Not picking up pumpkin/spice. This bottle has been resting a couple weeks, will keep re-testing.

    Cognac-Stained Sheet Ghost

    This is gorgeous. When first applied, the throw reminded me of sweet vanilla black tea. Overall it’s a gently warm, resinous, woodsy vanilla that I want to bathe in.

    Pumpkin Scented Sticky Bat

    Very much the same as Lemon-Scented Sticky Bat, but where Lemon-Scented is all lemon hard candy, Pumpkin-Scented leans slightly towards lemon bars. Both are delicious, but this one a little more so 💕

    Pinched With Four Pumpkins

    Fresh out of the mail. I wasn’t completely convinced this would work for me with the coffee, but I am so surprised at the scent I am getting. At first it was all dry coffee, but a minute later and I’m wondering where that sweet honey scent is coming from? I had to come back and look at the notes since honey often turns sharp and powdery on me, but what I’m smelling here is realistic and beautiful. Overall I’m getting sweet honey/tobacco and earthy coffee. I need a backup of this!

    The Peacock Queen

    2013 version This was instant love. Deep, lush, sweet, velvety, beautiful red rose. No morphing/powder, lasted several hours. There is something incredibly soothing about this scent to me, to the point that I’m happy wearing it as a sleep scent as well. Need more bottles!

    When Life Shone Warm in Thine Eye

    This sounded so lovely, but on my skin honey and jasmine are trampling everything in kind of a sour way. These notes often don’t work on me, but I keep trying ☹️

    Samhain in the Pumpkin Patch

    Buttery pumpkin and sweet red apple, swirled with spices and fir, supported by patch. Samhain, but more cuddly.
