    Meditation Buddy

    I get all of the notes listed, with an emphasis on the wax, to my delight. Although it is a lighter scent, it is quite long lasting. It is indeed a good perfume for meditation or just to be in a calm sweet spot. Lovely!

    Edith Awakes

    Black Phoenix Trading Post presents you with a happy accident: our line of Crimson Peak Home & Linen sprays are available for a limited time in 5ml perfume blends! We have a limited quantity of labels remaining for these bottles, so don't miss out! Heady jasmine drifting through the air, eclipsing the scent of a rapidly-drying bloodstain and the smoke of a snuffed beeswax candle. Heady jasmine indeed! I honesty cannot pick out the "bloodstain" or smoke, but do get the snuffed wax. As it dries, it becomes very close to a jasmine soliflore. As a jasmine fan, I appreciate that!

    Young Edith's Bedroom

    Basically this is a gardenia and wax scent on me. Mmmm! Both these notes start out strong, with the wax backing down first. There are some woody and vanilla notes paying around in here as well. It makes for a very pretty, sexy perfume. (I did not see the movie, but if this is Edith in her youth, she is gonna be one hot mamma!)

    Lucille's Room

    This starts out with strong liac and a fougere vibe to it from the oakmoss and violet leaf. It also has a distinct vanilla vibe to it from the amber on the drydown, with the play of the lily coming from behind the lilac. It is an elegant perfume.

    Anise Swallowtail Caterpillar Hair Gloss

    This is in the broad family of Black Cardamon Vanilla and Love Swing. It is a creamy vanilla cardamon. I cannot pick up much anise (which I was after), but it is still a lovely scent.

    Cabbage White Caterpillar Hair Gloss

    Whoa...I smell something edible from my children but it is definitely not Trix or Fruit Loops cereal, as I never smelled those. Now, Hmm. Those lemon cream marshmallow cookies? Anyways, to my nose, this is a strong lemon marshmallow scent. I am not getting mint, although I suspect it is there, because the sweetness is tempered. If I were the script writer, I would change the description to "!Marshmallow lemon sugar with a drop of mint." Contemplating a full bottle. Very pretty!

    Violet & Green Tea Hair Gloss

    This starts with a dry violet entrance, with the green tea taking over quickly after that. The violet is quite light and the scent is all about the green tea. This reminds me of Elizabeth Arden's Green Tea perfume. A clean, fresh scent that would be office friendly.

    Dance of Death

    I just got into my imp of this and absolutely love it! Beautiful long lasting powdery orris supported by rich resins.

    The Golden Hour

    So Judgey Hair Gloss

    Oh, my goodness! Finally, a scent I have been craving in HG! It is that lovely BPAL fizzy ginger ale/champagne note I am addicted to!! The lemon in here is light, not bitter at all and the juniper berries add a perfect touch of that gin vibe without being boozy.

    Krampus Lace

    Opens with strong sexy honey red musk and dries down into creamy laced bpal tobacco. What's not to love?!

    Eve's Big Apple III

    Being a big champagne note fan, I had to hunt this down. Yes, as others noted, there is a big fizzy entrance of a gingered champagne with a very light apple nuance. Perfect! I was shocked that my husband even commented that it is pretty. (Not sure if this a compliment, however. He is an Axe man!) But why is no one talking about the dry down? After the delightful celebratory entrance, this dries down into the most beautiful vannila-ish skin musk. It puts me in full-huff mode.

    Implacable Beautiful Tyrant Hair Gloss

    Golden amber, frankincense, white ginger, and oudh. A beautiful ambery frank HG. The oude is barely there and the ginger is very light. This is not an in-your-face sceb4t and good for work. Classic! Meanwhile, still searching for my in-your-face frank@

    Apple Marshmallow Hair Gloss

    This is beautiful! I am not a Boo fan, but this is a better more vanilla marshmallow, tempered with the apple to cut the sweetness. The apple is natural smelling. Love!!!!

    Being a big Morocco fan, I was after this since 2014 and so was thrilled with the re-release. It does not disappoint. It is a powdey light rose, with touches of spice and incense. Sexy, classic. ETA 2 hours into drydown and this is nothing like Morocco or first two hours. Now it is an evocative warm spicy incense! Eve is stunning!
