    Under The Silvery Moonbeams

    In the imp I get a kaleidoscope of greens all spattered by rain. Cool spiky pine, warm vegetal matcha, and dewy clean moss all dusted by sweet cardamom. On my skin it gets warmer and sweeter, I suspect from the labdanum. As it dries I get mostly a sweet, cardamom dusted moss scent with hints of pine and tea.

    A Meal Interrupted

    A delicate fresh and glittering green! The lettuce is crisp yet delicate and the cucumber and melon make this so dewy and fresh. I get just a hint of a bite I think maybe from onion and pepper but it just gives some nuance to the green freshness (reminds me a bit of the effect of the wasabi note in Frog Moon).

    Honeyed Mushroom and Incense

    A beautiful earthy blend. The mushroom and incense meld really well. It's earthy round and warm with a beautiful sweetness from the honey.

    A Nocturnal Visitor

    Oh I just love this combination! The orange and peach are so juicy and nectary. I can distinguish them but they meld really well. On my skin the labdanum and sandalwood peak out a bit to give complexity but it is really about the fruit. It's sophisticated yet juicy and fun.

    Imose-Yama

    In the imp this is a beautiful rose and cream with a gorgeous fruity-floral as well. I think the peony and broom. It stays pretty true on my skin. There's something almost juicy about it and then the gorgeous rich cream underneath. I can see the comparisons to Rose Jam but I like this so much better, as I find Rose Jam a sickly sort of sweet. This has more of a lightness and complexity to it. Makes me think of a gown with layers of pink and peach tulle over cream satin.
  6. In the imp I'd almost mistake this for a lotus scent, as it has a waxy sweet and almost bubblegum quality to it. But I find this a bit more herbal, and if I search around I can find the frankincense. The frankincense is the strongest note on me, followed by a whisper of dry sandalwood. Tansy isn't a note I've tried much (or maybe ever? Not so sure now) and I'm finding it to be a bit sweet and waxy like lotus but there's also something a bit like chamomile to it. This is a really nice blend, it makes me think of a warm wildflower meadow.
  7. Gorgeous spicy musky rose! I agree a dark, gothic rose scent. Black musk can be a bit hit or miss on me, here is it beautiful giving a nice depth to the velvety red rose.

    Auxilium

    This scent is so so soothing. Soft rosy incense and woods, with a bit of that waxy ylang ylang floating over top. I can pick out the brightness of the lemon as I breathe it in deeply.

    Lavender & Lichen

    A really airy, herbal lavender with what comes off to me as a rainy, green almost petrichor note. Mossy and fresh and the lavender compliments it beautifully.

    Late Night Moon 2021

    Really crisp and breezy neroli and white tea that settles more into a incense-y champaca tea as it dries. The champaca doesn't go screechy on me which is nice!

    And With My Spade I Delfe My Landys

    Beautiful wintry florals! I get a bit of that new spring green sap with chilly sweet snow and white florals. As it dries I do get a bit of a piney note as well. It does remind me of Marshmallow Snow like mentioned previously. Something about the foresty scent and the florals reminds me of a wintry Elf.

    Honey & Neroli Hair Gloss

    Really rich musky honey and a slightly bitter but very orange-y neroli. I can see how it comes off as apricot or peachy.

    Brown Sugar, Cream, and Earl Grey Tea

    In the imp this wasn't as brown sugar syrupy as I anticipated! Very mellow. The cream and bergamot in the earl grey really give it a lift. On my skin the tea is most prominent with a brown sugar complimenting it. The cream is very gentle. A gorgeous tea scent!

    Boney Moon 2022

    This one comes off as really eerie to me. The sandalwood and cedar are super dry, and with the white musk it gives the impression of desolate spookiness to me. On my skin the ambergris gives the tiniest bit of musky warmth but not much. It softens slightly as it wears with the herbs coming out a bit more as well. Still a very quiet, eerie scent.

    The Snow-Woman

    Really gorgeous snowy pine straight on. It gets a bit less chilly as it wears. It's hard to pick out the sake but I think it's giving a mellow sweetness to the blend.
