    Poor Monkey

    I'm surprised I never reviewed Poor Monkey--time to fix that omission! This is a skin scent, suitable for almost anywhere scent can be worn. On me, the fig milk & vanilla predominate, with the fir providing a cooling, understated ground. My notion of a wet monkey in a tree would be a lot muskier than this gentle, sweet blend. It pairs beautifully with Fig & White Sandalwood HG. Bottles are currently available on the Lab's Etsy--if you love the Lab's fig note, don't miss out!

    Western Small Foot Bat Hair Gloss

    Oops, forgot to review this lovely stuff! Rose with a hint of green leaves, with light, dry patchouli. Only a hint of amber for me. I love it!

    Lick It Like You Mean It

    From a forum purchase. Starts out as strong peppermint with a vanilla back up. Dries down to a surprisingly musky vanilla with a hint of mint & something faintly patchouli-like. I love it.

    Lilith De Milo

    Vanilla & sandalwood, with coconut to ground it. Soft, delicate, warm, very comfortable. When the notes contain vanilla & sandalwood, & there's a picture of the Littlest Lab Rat TM on the label, it's pretty much a must -buy for me.

    Midnight Mass

    2013 version. Soft, dry, resins. Very low throw. This version is so dry on me that it cries out for layering. I was frimped a sniffy decant of the 2018 version, which is a lot fuller & more balanced on me. I'll re-review if I get my hands on some.

    Natural Science Nail Lacquer

    A latte-like taupe with so much shimmer! Great wear length: 5 days looking great. I was complimented on the color, but that happens with pretty much all of my BPTP polishes .

    Dream Awake Nail Lacquer

    @absinthetics is right, this is a one-coat coverage metallic, right in between silver & gold. Bright & shiny, in no way subdued. It reminds me of gold lamé, or gold leaf. This will be versatile for me. Happy I got it.

    I bought a partial bottle, but never reviewed it. 2+ years later, Hoiru is a suede scent for the ages . On me, Hoiru is suede leather & mysterious wood. Somehow, all the notes (bourbon vanilla, tonka, patchouli, pale amber, blackened tea leaf, coconut husk & cashmere,) combine to produce a scent that seems like the most smooth & expensive Mysore sandalwood, plus oudh. A keeper, for sure!

    Seconding @VioletChaos on the greatness of both the images and the shirts used for the current Lunacy collaborations with Dan Santat. Gotta catch 'em all! The Pink Moon & Strawberry Moon images are my faves so far. (Pink Moon looks like the artist used Teadaughter as the model, squee!) Also very chuffed about the return of the Goblin Grab Barrels.

    Penny Rolle

    Yes!  This is amazing! Sandalwood is front & center. So good! It's wood & amber & nuts on me...I need a bottle.

    Big Bertha's Big Molasses Muffins

    Delicious! Started out extremely foody, but relaxed into a quiet, spicy molasses that seems musky. I didn't get any orange, which surprised me. I agree this is a cozy blend. I like it a lot. Possible bottle.

    Unhelpful review: my skin completely wrecked Gynotize!. I tested it twice to be sure. It went on as bold cherry, with skin musk & a hint of rose. Over the next 10 minutes, the cherry blast dissipated. What emerged was...extra-virgin olive oil accord. I kid you not.

    Harlow's Lace

    I got my Harlow's Lace yesterday, & let it rest til today. It's sweet musk tobacco lace. The first couple minutes it's boozy butterscotch musk, almost like The Other Miss Forcible meets Grog. Then the tobacco comes out, followed by labdanum & the vanilla lace note. I foresee heavy rotation for this blend come autumn, because it's so cuddly.

    TKO has a special place in my heart. I endorse it 100%. 1) It absolutely does work as a relaxation and/or sleep blend. 2) It made a huge difference for my daughter's sleep routine at a time she really needed help. 3) It smells fabulous. When my daughter first encountered TKO, she described it as "Like being hit by a marshmallow pillow stuffed with lavender."

    Brown Jenkin

    I love Brown Jenkin, despite how much its namesake creeps me out. I don't typically enjoy wearing the Lab's "dusty" notes, so if the description of the white sandalwood as dusty puts you off, take a risk. It is dry, as the Lab's white sandalwood generally is. The coconut husk & musk are the stars of this blend for me. It's the coconut that I love from Goblin, that goes so beautifully with woody scents. The musk sweetens the dry wood & coconut delightfully. The orris root & ceremonial incense notes are pretty subdued on my skin. Brown Jenkin is consistent--in the bottle, freshly applied, & dry, it's an unexpected musky coconut wood. Medium throw, medium wear length.
