    Talk to Me About Milks?

    @MonBon Thank you for this, I totally forgot about Ghost Faced Bat! That was super creamy and sweet, though I recall having trouble separating the milk note from the creaminess of the coconut.

    Talk to Me About Milks?

    Milk notes I have found to be mostly differentiated by their richness/butteriness. Cream is richer than milk, etc. I find goat milk to be rather buttery, with a touch of pleasant funk sometimes. I haven't tried anything with an evaporated milk note but I would imagine not too much of a difference from reg milk notes (whereas as condensed milk like you mentioned I assume would be sweetened), though perhaps a touch of that 'cooked'/scorched quality seen in recent scorched milk blends? I assume buttermilk would also have a bit of a tanginess to it!

    Byzantine Bean Taffy

    Deliciously salty-sweet. It's chewy and rich, to my nose a lightly caramelized vanilla with a bit of spice. Mostly cinnamon and cardamom I think? The salt is less prominent dry, just cutting the sweetness a touch.

    Diving for Treasure

    Such a gorgeous beachy coconut in the imp! And thankfully that stays on my skin, I was worried about the orris putting a damper on things. The marine notes in this are very gentle, just playing supporting roles to the coconut. I agree this is more of a clean aquatic than a salty one, it's bright and fresh.

    This one was strange to me in the imp, I think something about the way the peppermint cream and lilac were combining. Not bad just threw my nose. On my skin this sorts out with the peppermint cream being more dominant, it's not *super* minty and there's a lot of that airy, marshmallow-y thing going on with the mallow flower as well. I get a bit of lilac as well, and as it dries the rose and teak start to poke out. They give just a touch more body to the scent.

    Magic, Do As You Will

    This is surprisingly bright and fruity in the imp, very plummy. On my skin a bit of spice comes out, not enough to make this a stewed winter fruit scent, the fruit is still juicy and fresh. The resins stay very much in the background on me.

    Erotic Drops of Flower Petals Hair Gloss

    A gorgeous cloud of mango nectar. As it settles I get a bit of patchouli and ambrette, but to my nose this is primarily about that lovely mango!

    Tea Funeral

    In the imp I get waxy lily and a touch of a slightly smoky black tea. On my skin the silk note comes out, and I get more green tea than black. Not a super crisp greek tea, more mellow and vegetal and it melds with the lily.

    Cluster of Cherry Blossoms

    Gorgeous! Almost candyfloss-like in its airy sweetness. Honey and cherry blossom nestled in a halo of floral musk with a touch of cherry fruit. Cherry normally goes cough syrupy on my skin, but this is staying so nice.

    Hooligan Frogs Bowling with Mushroom Pins

    In the imp this is more rich and cozy than I expected, mostly tobacco, sandalwood and ambrette with a touch of moss. On my skin it is similar with the barest hint of mushroom adding some more earthiness. I get a bit of a brighter green note, I don't think it's the moss, but whatever Beth has added to make 'green' sandalwood. Maybe a bit of lime? I can't quite pull it out, but it definitely pushes the scent a little fresher than full on cozy.

    Snooty Bat

    Big sweet patch in the imp with a smack of black leather. I also get a faint whiff of red rose for a moment. On my skin it is mostly patchouli and clove with a bit of smoky leather at the edges, very surprised to see it behave on me.

    Discarded Images of the Floating World

    This is so soothing and tranquil. In the imp I get a gentle mint and green tea combo, rounded out by a very light amber. On my skin the amber and a gentle hint of oud (light, woody not funky) and smooth leather make a base for the other notes to dance on top of. It's a gentle green blend, lightly herbal. Mostly green tea with a bit of sweet mint and bergamot, but if I search I can find the juniper berry and the lemon blossom.

    An Oiran on New Years Day

    Despite not being a listed in the imp I mostly get cinnamon, the soft sweet Ceylon kind. I think it is something about the combination of spices, as on my skin I distinctly get cardamom, and a light dry ginger. I think the peppercorn is adding the heat my nose read as cinnamon? As it dries I get tea and just a hint of wood, but this is very spice forward on me. Very cozy!

    Gioco Del Volano

    In the imp I get beautiful sugared jasmine and a sprinkle of herbs. It gets very quiet on my skin, mostly sugary vanilla and some smooth jasmine. There is a pear whispering a few rooms over. Some moss and thyme are in my pocket. It's a pretty scent, but my skin is just eating it up for some reason.

    Scientist of Artistic Idleness

    Really interesting combo of warm spicy notes and cool notes. Initially I get a lot of sage, clove, and juniper over a sweetish cool musk. As it dries I get more peppercorn, and mixed with the clove this is a really spicy scent, getting a bit sweeter and more herbal as it dries. Once fully dry I would say the sage and juniper are most prominent with the amber and musk backing them up, with just a hint of spice. It's sharp and elegant, yet a bit rugged.
