    Kimi Ga Dai Wa

    I love this. LOVE IT. It's one of those scents that is way more than the sum of it's parts. Like if I didn't know better I would say there's some vanilla in there. It's subtly smoky on me. Musky. Warm and fuzzy. I love it and I want to roll around in it.

    Peach Vulva

    In my head, this was going to be the apricot, amber and cardamom scent of my dreams. In reality and on my skin, it's pretty much all peach and apricot. I don't even get the amber, which I usually amp. No rice milk, no cardamom. I like it, but it's very...basic....on me. Will age a bit and see what happens.

    Papyrus, Cardamom & Balsam

    This is spicy, perfumey (in the way I always find cardamom perfumey) and clean. What a neat scent! Very evocative. Difficult to describe. The cardamom shines in this more than in any other scent I have tried so far (I have been searching for the perfect cardamom for ages). The balsam gives richness and depth, the papyrus adds gravity and also a dryness that feels....aged. Like, maybe Indiana Jones smells a bit like this, after he's been digging through ancient artifacts from far off places? I don't know. I love it.

    Dead Leaves, Marshmallow, and Pistachio Cream

    Packing stuff to move and found a couple of bottles I ordered and never even tried! Instead of being annoyed with myself for forgetting them I have decided to think of them as a gift to myself tucked away for later. LOL. (that's me trying to convince myself I am not a hoarder) This is so interesting! Quite gourmand in the bottle, almost spicy, which makes no sense. Once on my skin though it loses that weird spicy sweetness and instead smells more like a very high end cologne. This reminds me of something from my childhood. Very nostalgic. I want to say pistachio ice cream/pudding but it's not that simple. Whatever it is, it's glorious. I own absolutely nothing like this, it's so unique. I really really like it. I also love that the dead leaves is subtle in this one (on me). Usually I amp dead leaves.

    Rickety Staircase

    In the bottle this makes no sense to me - so much so that I have avoided testing it. It smells like laundry in the bottle. Makes no sense! Once it's on my skin it does still have a really weird "clean" vibe. The oak is reminiscent of the oak in Haloes on me. The amber makes zero sense here. On me, amber is rich, sweet and syrupy. I love it, and it loves me. This is not that note on me. All I can think is soap when I smell it. It's not sweet or warm or rich. It's pale and light and clean. Not sure what to think here, it's not at all what I expected reading the notes. It's a very dry scent. Dusty almost. If I had been looking for a light, clean scent to wear to work this actually would have been perfect, but I had my heart set on rich amber and wood and so I find I am disappointed.

    Shadows and Light

    There's another smoky lavender scent that I cannot pronounce (I think it starts with a G? LOL) and I am obsessed with it, so I had to have this when I saw the description of lavender and smoke! This is a much different smoke note, reminding me more of maybe Devil's Night? Or the Storyteller? Smells like bonfire, but with lavender thrown on. Marvelous! The musk is clean and bright behind the smoke and lavender. The cognac adds just a touch of sweetness. This is really something. I love it. Different than anything I own or have ever tried.

    My Tiger

    I can't believe I never bothered to review this one, I adore this scent! One of my bedtime faves. The amber and sugar cane combine on me to make this sticky sweetness that I love - almost like fig or something. It's gorgeous with the lavender and hint of patchouli. I often wonder if I should have got 2 bottles!

    Aoede, Melete, Mneme

    I can't say no to the combo of vanilla and sandalwood (vanilla and any wood, really!) so I somehow ignored the fact that this has cream in. Cream rarely works on me. It smells awful to my nose, even in the bottle - like scalded milk. Thankfully, it smells way better once warmed by my skin. It becomes a subtle, sweet skin scent on me. Creamy vanilla toffee is the best way I can describe it. Not getting any of the wood. It's not quite what I was hoping for, and a bit too gourmand for my current tastes. If you love creamy gourmand scents though, give this a go! Also, just as an FYI - the label differs from the name of this thread - my bottle says " Aoede, Melete, Mneme"

    Cedarwood, Vanilla Absolute & Tolu Balsam

    I really love the combo of cedar and vanilla, so I was expecting to love this, but it's a whole lotta pencil shavings on me. It may just need to age for a good long while (fresh wood scents are often not awesome on my skin) so I won't give up on it, but currently it's not a fave. I am getting none of the vanilla sweetness I hoped for, and all of the dry dusty pencils. Wah wah.

    Tahitian Vanilla, Mysore Sandalwood & Bergamot

    I like this scent quite a bit - but I don't get it. There's definitely a "more than the sum of it's parts" thing happening here, turning this into a lush, tropical scent that I SWEAR smells like jasmine, but without the funky cat pee thing that jasmine almost always does on my skin. It's quite lovely. Sweet and tropical, heavy on the vanilla but with that inexplicable floral vibe as well. Will tuck it away for summer.

    Baby’s First Ballista

    I cannot resist the combination of vanilla and oak. Lately the scents I reach for most are simple, familiar scents with few notes. So this really called to me. In the bottle it is straight up cookie dough, but as soon as it warms on my skin, the rich oak and syrupy vanilla come through and it's basically exactly what I hoped it would be. Smooth, sweet, rich. It's almost boozey. So so good. A keeper. The oak keeps it from being a gourmand, on me, but it's still lovely and sweet. Reminds a bit of Antikythera Mechanism without the tobacco. Lovely!

    Apocalypse Box

    I love lavender scents for bedtime, and the Liliths are some of my most reached for bedtime scents. I don't get a ton of lavender from this though, sadly, it's mostly laundry. It's lovely laundry though, clean and snuggly. I think it'll still be quite nice as a bedtime scent, it's just not as heavy on the lavender as I had hoped.

    Skin Musk, Cream & Honey Dust

    This is not at all what I expected (granted, I don't remember ordering it, so I don't actually know what I was expecting? LOL). Cream is a tricky note for me, it often smells horrible to my nose, but I don't actually get the cream at all here. Or even the musk really. It's just honey, but a very different honey note than any of the Lab's other honey scents I have (and I have a lot of honey scents, I love it so!). This reminds me a ton of Lush's Honey I Shrunk the Kids. I'm not mad about it. Very gourmand though, not the subtle skin scent I thought it might be. Still, a keeper.

    Enchanting Diversion with a Wakashu

    Wet: This is a light skin scent on me, mainly tart apricot and dark musk. It's getting a bit stronger as it warms on my skin. It's different than any of the other apricot scents that I have, much darker. This is the only Luper I got this year, because I have been on such a strict low-buy, and I think I gambled wrong. it's just so faint on me! Dry: The musk is nice, but still really faint. I enjoy this, but I don't love it. And at this stage when I have more perfumes than I can even wear in a year, I think I have to love it to keep it. Sad I picked wrong! But hopefully someone else will love this.

    Lola Lee Loo

    Wet: Sweet, kind of soapy and perfumey - not at all what I expected. I don't know what I'm smelling? Almost reminds me of lotus. Or bubble gum. I guess it's the fig? It's not happy on my skin, I can tell you that. It's actually really unpleasant, which none of these notes should be on my skin, so I dunno what's up! Not at all expected. I get no coconut, no vanilla cream, no clove or patchouli. Just sickly sweet fake candy powder and soap that I have to assume is the fig, which I generally love but has gone very wrong on me in this. Dry: The fig is more recognizable, less sweet, more green. Still very perfumey. And still totally dominating the other notes on me, might as well be a single note. Usually I amp both patch and clove, but they are non-existent. All green fig! I so wanted to love this, but it's gotta go in the sell box.
