    The Seesaw

    At first, it was all sweet artificial strawberry then it was I'M A CIGARETTE SMOKER WEARING SWEET STRAWBERRY PERFUME and it was making me nauseous THEN the stale cigarette smell faded and now it smells like strawberry incense, which reminds me of a Tinkerbell lipgloss I had as a child. I like it, more for the nostalgia than anything.

    Snow Scents!

    Hello! I've been talking about this in some other threads but haven't gotten any answers. This year I tested Coquelicot Snow & A Lady Tall and White from last years post update. I love them and they did not give me a headache HOWEVER I got a lot of snow scent from this year's Yule update and so far all the ones I've tested have given me a headache ( Snow White, Nuclear Winter, Frau Holle ). Is the difference that the post used a different snow note, or do you think it could be that the two I liked were aged for a year? I'm trying to figure out if I should wait a year and retest the rest I have or go ahead and swap. Also, if you have any insight as to which scents have the death snow note and which don't, that would be appreciated!

    OBSESSED WITH THIS SCENT. I love licorice/anise notes and I also love salt licorice, so this scent is everything. It's mainly salt licorice with some leather, and I would say it's gender neutral - it smells like candy but it's not very sweet. The only downside is it tends to fade after a few hours, so it's a 2-3x a dayer.
  6. Kabuki is my sexy scent, the red musk is divinely seductive. I get so many compliments when I wear it as well.

    La Befana

    I LOVE this perfume! It also helps that I love violet candy and licorice, which is what this smells like.
  8. Laura S. Taylor

    Why do scents turn to baby powder on me?!

    Are they lab fresh or some you bought from forumnites? I have some imps that have been passed around a few years, and those tend to behave similarly to what you described

    So this starts off like legit carrot cake, but after it dries it turns into a pricey spiced holiday gourmand candle, not necessarily in a bad way (I'm looking at YOU Apple Cider). Then the spices die down a little more and the buttery crust takes the forefront, with a little spice and sweet. It's pretty low-throw and not terribly impressive, but a nice creamy, spicy holiday scent nonetheless.

    Banana Cream Pie Bath Oil

    I am so sad. I had really high hopes for my first bath oil, but I was really let down. From beginning to end, in the bath and on the skin, this smells like banana flavored Runts. No natural bananas, no cream, no crust.
  11. Laura S. Taylor

    Anise, Aniseed, Licorice, Liquorice, Fennel, Ouzo?

    Kabuki is AMAZING, the anise and red musk are the most dominant notes on me

    Single Note: Apple Cider

    I just can't get past the typical apple spice candle comparison, all I smell is holiday candle, all the time.

    The Witches’ Rout (the Carcass)

    As this was drying down, I got a carcass indeed. It smelled like decay! But when dry, it turned into a warm, dusty scent. I like it, but it stays very close to the skin, will try slathering next time and hopefully I'll live past the dry down.
  14. Laura S. Taylor


    Are you for sure there isn't leather in this? This smells exactly like leather with a tiny bit of rubber, it's low throw and fades into a skin scent. I'll give it to my husband and see what he thinks.
