    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.

    The Little Wooden Doll

    Soft, gentle sandalwood & rose, with amber grounding them. A warm, dry scent. I tend to layer this with other rose blends, as it is a little drier than I prefer. It's very simple.

    Morocco is the perfect spiced musk & sandalwood blend, period. I love it as both perfume oil & hair gloss. It has medium-low throw, so it's a subtle blend. I think almost everyone I have hugged while wearing Morocco has told me I smell good. I tend to amp the clove-like note in the Lab's carnation, so I don't register a floral in Morocco, just spice. A classic.

    Hollywood Babylon

    Hollywood Babylon is the rare red musk blend that my skin can't throw out of balance: usually I amp it like whoa. It's a cousin to Dragon's Milk & Tamora, in that it's got a sweet vanilla core. I find the musk & cherries are the main attraction. The amber, heliotrope & strawberries are side notes for me. I haven't bought a bottle, but I use every frimp that has come my way.

    They Shut Me Up in Prose

    Squee! Excellent vanilla & sandalwood, with delicate florals. I agree that They Shut Me Up in Prose is related to Volcano in Springtime. Both are part of a family that includes Two Sheep and Two Goats Resting Together in a Field, Zorya Polunochnaya & Like A Girl. If you love vanilla & sandalwood, do not hesitate!
