    Carved Wooden Soda Shop

    Delicious! Creamy vanilla and sweet rootbeer, it's even a touch fizzy to my nose but not sure if my brain is just doing that. The cedar is soft on my skin, most noticeable late into the dry down, but helps keep the sweetness in check.

    Raven Moon 2022

    At first I get mostly myrrh and black musk, a cousin of Haunted. The patch creeps in as it dries roughing up the blend a bit, but then everything is smoothed out again by the vanilla. I struggle to find the nutmeg or chilli on my skin.

    The Little Owl

    This starts off very oaky on me, with a hint of vetiver and almond. It reminds me of study, or a softer cousin of The Antikythera Mechanism. It gets a little less woody as it wears, with more soft sandalwood and a bit of beeswax coming out to smooth edges and sweeten slightly.

    Schrödinger’s Checkmark

    This is the baby of Stekk and Ask The Nearest Hippie. Gorgeous vanilla marshmallow dominated but eventual a delightful deep, chewy patch shows through. Incredible.

    In Silvery Accents, Whispering Low

    A gorgeous fuzzy brown scent. Coffee, incense and cardamom mak this so rich and snuggly, and I get a hint of fir around the edges for a slightly chilly freshness.

    Birb Mob

    Beautiful chilly snow and blue musk with a hint of rosy pink pepper. As it dries I think I can catch a bit of smoke, but my skin shockingly seems to be eating it in this scent.

    Toddler Holster

    A bit nervous sniffing this is in the imp, as the fresher, polished leather notes can take over on my skin and go screechy. In the imp I get mostly fresh leather and fir. On my skin the leather keeps in the background, and the fir and chocolate come front and center. It's foresty and a bit sweet and homey at the same time.

    Teapot Full of Angst

    In the imp I get a beautiful black tea and almond combo, brightened with lemon. Wet it's mostly almond, heading off into pastry territory. As it dries the almond calms down, and I get bits of patch and tobacco peaking through as well. The other notes really support the tea.

    Star Anise, White Sage, and Bergamot

    I agree with the above, there is something invigorating about this blend. The combination of sage and bergamot is bright and crisp. The anise creeps in as it dries and gives it a bit of a base note and sweetness.

    Santa Doesn’t Need Your Help

    Super fluffy lavender marshmallows! It reminds me of TKO but super sweet and with a candied fruitiness. The sweetness settles down a smidge as it dries but still a super fun, delicious scent.
  11. I love a smooth, lightly sweetened patchouli. The caramel adds a richness to the patch. The smoke is light, just helping to keep the sweetness in check, and the cedar a dry, woody undertone. A gorgeous, super cozy trio.

    Delicious spicy pastry, syrupy sweet. On my skin the ginger really blooms and I agree it is very reminiscent of Shub, but there's a butteriness underneath.

    2022 Version. Absolutely lovely beeswax blend! Sometimes beeswax can be thick and sticky with honey, but this is the lighter version. It's truly glowing and has a beautiful soft fruitiness. No pastry on my skin, but it's beautiful all the same.

    The Magi

    2022 Edition. In the imp I get the wine grape, it reminds me of Bon Vivant but minus all the fizziness, and with a good coat of vanilla. On my skin I get the incense first, then the grape and vanilla over top. There is a bright, sparkling sort of note (but not fizzy like the champagne note). It's really lifting the resins. A beautiful incense blend!

    Three Pairs of Shoes

    In the imp all I got was fresh, fresh leather. But on my skin the beeswax takes right over! It eventually settles down a bit, letting the smoked vanilla come out along with the tobacco and the leather. The leather retains a bit of that 'fresh', sort of chemical scent that threatens to give me a headache, but the beeswax keeps it in check. It's a really interesting scent, and I bet a bit of aging would do wonders.
