    Honey, Black Lilies, and Gardenia Petals

    There’s a weird… spicy honey? in the bottle. The note disappears on application, replaced by a faint gardenia overlaid with waxy lily, but the florals are gone by the time it dries, and all that’s left is the strange dry-spice note. No vampire titty.

    Cutie Dragon

    Lemon glaze poured over cake in the bottle and on application. The cake note quickly vanishes, leaving a dead ringer for Lemon-Scented Sticky Bat. No honey at all. (But I love LSSB, so that's not a complaint!)

    Lovely minty menthol snow, which dries to sweet snow plus berries. Definitely another sister to Skadi and Almond Blossom. Throwing a bottle in my cart!

    Apple I

    Goat’s milk tang in the bottle, which is surprising because I’ve never actually gotten goat’s milk from a BPAL blend. Goes on as the Lab’s lovely apple note, but the entire thing quickly vanishes for a minute. It returns as a woody, grassy note.

    Drop Dead Ghoulish

    Starts as milk in sugared breakfast cereal. This dries to a surprising blueberry, like in the middle of a Tastykake pie. A very happy scent.

    The Laughter of Loki

    yep, that there is sweet patchouli, all right. I feel like I just opened my sister's Like a Prayer CD and took a big whiff.

    Pink Grapefruit and Pomelo

    Realistic sweet fresh red grapefruit in the bottle and on the wrist. This becomes more like a grapefruit juice cocktail as it dries, becoming less like the fruit and more perfumy. Super pretty, just not the hyperrealism of the opening. Gorgeous!

    Castitas Bath Oil

    A delicious comforting toasty grain. No flowers, no vanilla, but it's okay because it's the awesome base note of Dana O'Shee (one of my all-time favorites) and Halfling. I would totally get a full bottle of this.

    Apple IV

    Starts as the pretty apple juice from this line, but the blackcurrant and clove become a weird generic aftershave note. I had to scrub it off with soap and then hit it again with rubbing alcohol. I feel like I will never actually know what “bourbon/Madagascar vanilla” is, because I never actually get to smell any kind of vanilla in any blend which lists it.

    Sugared Apple Bath Oil

    lovely sweet fresh apple juice topped with a frosting of powdery sugar. Amazing.

    Cruising Through Bedlam

    Lemongrass and a dash of anise in the bottle. Goes on as VERY strong lemongrass, holy fuck. I feel like I fell into a bottle of Swarm Attractor. As it dries, the lemongrass calms down a little and a strong licorice emerges. These two notes continue to cycle once it’s fully dry. Absolutely no other notes. If the two would combine and not alternate, this would be an awesome "get up and go" scent. The lemongrass is a little too harsh on its own without the licorice to sweeten it. Definitely invigorating.

    Row Bullies Row

    The good butterscotch rum in the bottle, with a faint sweetness about it. Goes on as rum with a dash of almond. Continues as a sort of musty rum-almond extract. The sickly-sweet foodie honey comes in as it dries. Finishes as a gross male cologne.

    The Wellerman

    Werther’s butterscotch in the bottle. Oh, this is the good rum. Goes on as rum with sugar brûlee. Some lemon iced tea powder comes in as it dries, which is interesting and goes surprisingly well with the sugary rum. This is a sort of Pirates for Children scent. There’s something entertainingly artificial about it, like a bubblegum feeling. Turns into Lemonhead Candy once it’s dry.

    Tobacco & Pine Needle

    Strong, dusty, sour pine in the bottle and on application. As it dries, it turns into a very cologne-y tobacco, which is frankly unpleasant. I had to wash it off. Oh well, off to swaps for someone else to enjoy it more.

    Strawberries & Honeycomb

    OOOOF SCREAMING STRAWBERRY KOOL-AID POWDER in the bottle. Goes on as the gorgeous fresh strawberry note from “Eat the Strawberries” from American Gods. This is pretty intense wet, but calms down a bit as it dries — like you cut up a bunch of strawberries and sugar for jam and they’ve been cooking for a little bit. Not getting any honey or honeycomb notes. Once it’s completely dry, it turns back into strawberry Kool-Aid. A cheerful, young perfume. This is not remotely like the perfumy honey of Honeyed Apple on my skin (YMMV, of course).
