  1. Have you tried The Rose (GC)? It's red rose with the leaves and sap, but I find it doesn't have that chill of Rose Red that you described. Could be what you're looking for!

    Zephyr

    The scent is very confusing wet initially. Lots of citrus notes clamoring against the white florals and with the white musk it's a bit too sharp and busy and soapy. Thankfully it soon settles in, and the neroli stands out over the top of the rest of the notes with the lemon and bergamot trailing behind. It's bright and still smells very clean, more like breezy linens rather than soap at this point. As it settles further the musk, sandalwood, and gardenia round it out more. Very fresh and clean spring scent.

    Othello

    Wet this is deep musky rose with a sharp smoky smell that smells a bit like spent fireworks for a moment before turning into heady incenses. Soon it settles into a much more subdued smooth musk, with just a breath of dark roses over the top.

    Monster Bait: biggerCritters Hair Gloss

    Super sugary vanilla. I get more jasmine than gardenia, and it is the very sweet smooth kind. The grapefruit really brightens the scent and makes it different from other vanilla hgs in my collection, it adds a lot of freshness. A very young and playful scent, it makes me think of dolls.

    Shadow Embrace Bath Oil

    Man I wish I grabbed more than one bottle of this. Super luxurious scent. It's so complex and mysterious. The agarwood is sweetly smoky, and so smooth. The orchid is waxy and a bit humid. They meld beautifully.

    Crinoline and Lace

    To me this is a very delicate 'pouf' scent, it makes me think of old fashioned powder rooms and powder poufs, but without the scent itself being super powdery. I'm having a hard time picking out particular notes but vanilla and a bit of creamy coconut. It sort of bright, clean, and creamy, with a breath of floral.There is just the tiniest bit of powder on the edges of the scent, it's really nice and makes it sort of vintage but without the aldehydes.

    Beachy, Tropical Scents

    Eternal Queen to me is a beachy floral - white gardenia and tuberose with ambergris accord, vegetal vanilla musk, bourbon vanilla, and amber incense

    Informal Tea Hair Gloss

    Clean, fresh green tea but I do not get any of the citrus brightness I normally do. The amber sweetens and warms the scent beautifully, and I get a touch of powdery softness from the sandalwood.

    Snow White Hair Gloss

    Very soft, fluffy coconutty snow. I get no flowers from this. But its that classic, comforting Yule scent, very snuggly.

    Rose Red Hair Gloss

    Sappy green and sweet, fresh red rose. Cool-toned scent. Very good throw on this one.

    Tiny Genital People Atmosphere Spray

    Bright citrusy floral. Maybe white musk or white tea, with lemon and a white floral, I'm thinking gardenia but can't quite place it. It's surprisingly delicate,

    Two Pairs of Lovers Atmosphere Spray

    A goregous, very earthy scent. I never tried green patch before and I like it quite a bit. It's very herbaceous and has a faint astringent edge. The mint pairs very well with it, and makes it very refreshing in the heat while not being a Yule-mint scent. Very complex with the other notes, and it reads very green to my nose but isn't just a garden or forest scent. It's very unique, haven't smelled anything quite like it before.

    I Sit and Sew

    The main players in this scent on me are the vanilla and jasmine. It's creamy and sweet jasmine, very pillowy and like a cousin of La Prostitution et la Folie Dominent le Monde. Though with the white musk, and the greeness of the violet leaf and tea (very crisp, I think it might be white tea) make this very fresh.

    Somnus

    Getting white musk for sure, and maybe a touch of dry, astringent lavender. It reminds me vaguely of Ode on Melancholy wet. I get that dusty herbal quality of chamomile as well. I love, jasmine, but not sure I get any here. Dry it's a dusty soft sort of herbal, but there is something high pitched and astringent that lingers on me.

    Edible Panties Hair Gloss

    Scents like cherry and strawberry generally are too sweet for me, and in the vial I thought this was going to be no exception. However when sprayed he cherry took on more of its life-like qualities, sweet but with a hint of bitterness. The sugar is tempered somewhat and the peppercorn adds a perfumey edge. Still not quite me, but surprisingly complex.
