    Caressing the Gilded Lily

    White tea in the bottle and on application. This morphs into a stemmy note — maybe the osmanthus? — and then the bergamot comes in, harsh and astringent. After about 10 minutes it calms down into a thick lily, but that only lasts briefly before the bergamot returns.

    Lemon-Scented Sticky Bat, perhaps?

    Coffee notes?

    Coffee doesn't disappear on my skin, but I might recommend you try Guatemalan Coffee Bean and Spiced Rum Buttercream Coffee. Zonked has the same coffee note from Café Mille et un Nuits, so whatever that did on you, Zonked probably will as well.

    Zonked in Paris

    Delightfully bitter fresh coffee in the bottle, with just a… breath of sweetness. Goes on as pure coffee, leaning towards the Turkish kind from Café Mille et un Nuits. Some vanilla starts to come in as it dries. It’s definitely vanilla ice cream and not just vanilla. The coffee starts to recede to dregs, and sadly this is the vanilla note which goes to plastic on my skin. It finishes as bitter brown coffee dregs outside Yankee Candle on their Vanillabration Day. Dammit, I so wanted this to work.

    Virgo Snowball Fight

    a lovely white tea with lemon in the bottle — I love this note of Beth's in a number of other blends. Goes on as tea, but with cologne overtones, like the tea is being sipped by a gentleman. Someone clearly rubbed the gentleman with some bay leaf, then too much bay leaf which gets very herbal, and then he finishes his tea and it’s just generic gentleman’s cologne.

    Travel Buddies

    ooh! refreshing in the bottle. Eucalyptus? Goes on as lemon and eucalyptus in the loveliest way. This is a great pick-me-up. It is exactly a travel survival scent. More rosemary comes in as it dries.There’s a brief cedar note, and then the whole thing is gone, but that’s what citrus does on my skin, so YMMV. Very nice. Great concept brilliantly executed.

    Lilith’s First Icicle

    Powdery jasmine stamen in the bottle and on application. Both those notes are dreadful on my skin. As it dries, I'm definitely seeing the comparison to shaving cream. Off to swaps!

    Beware: Pickpockets!

    A deliriously beautiful sweet grapefruit/vanilla combination. If Gobo and Baobhan Sith had a baby and the baby grew up to be Marilyn Monroe and she had a baby with Stephen Hawking and that baby grew up to be Lupita Nyong’o, she would smell like this.

    Golden Wave

    A sweet, vaguely fruity gin. I would totally drink this at a night party on the beach in July. Not something I need to smell like.

    Gingerbread, sort of? in the bottle. Goes on as I guess ginger blossom — a gingery floral, which is vaguely sweetish. But it turns seriously weird as it dries, like a plastic flower someone tried to spray with a generic floral vanilla. This line looked so amazing and my skin has just killed one after another.

    Rangoon Riptide

    This may have aged beyond usage for me. Spoiled fruit in the bottle. There's a lovely pineapple on application, which segues into a juicy passionfruit, but once it's dried I just get stale rum. I wish this would come back so I could try it fresh.

    A Balmy 26 Degrees

    Lemon floor cleaner.

    Delicious tart-sweet berry in the bottle. Goes on as ooh I like this! berry punch. WOW, this is awesome. Really intense. Gorgeous. …and it’s gone in two minutes flat? buh? Reapplying… nope, there it goes again. Dammit. I really liked this.

    The Sound of Insects

    Lime!! in the bottle. Goes on as Ginger!! this is very intense. It turns into mandarin peel as it dries, but the entire thing quickly goes sour and bitter. No tea. I’m sad.
