    Baku is eucalyptus and licorice on me. Not at all something I would wear out of the house, but I may try it in a pre-bedtime bath.

    Bram Stoker

    Bitter grass with notes of citrus. Not unpleasant, but I'd probably prefer to smell it on someone else than myself.

    Antique Lace

    I was hoping for more of the flowers, but I'm getting pretty much just vanilla on my skin. I love vanilla, and this is a nice soft vanilla, but it's just vanilla.

    Alice in the Pumpkin Patch

    This feels like a halloween tea party! It's more pumpkin than Alice on me, but it's a fruity pumpkin. A nice little dessert of a scent.

    Alabaster Vulva

    I have no idea why, but this goes on me as pure bubblegum. I had the same problem with Gothic Horror, but I can't find any overlapping ingredients so I'm stumped.

    Why does this smell like lemon on me? I'm reminded of a less intense Embalming Fluid. I can sense some of the floral notes, but no sandalwood at all. It's not bad, but I doubt I'd get a bottle of it.

    I had to take it off almost immediately after applying it. It smelled fine in the bottle, but when I put it on I got hit by something horribly cloying- it must have been the bitter almond. It sounds from other peoples' reviews that it changes overtime, but I couldn't wait.

    The Knave of Hearts

    I can officially say, between this and Blackcurrant Sufganiyot, that the blackcurrant note is too strong for me. It's all I get in this, sweet like jam or a lollipop, with no rose to be found.

    Drink Me

    I didn't get any turkey out of this and honestly, that's probably for the best. This was another nice foodie smell, but you don't really need it if you already have Dorian or anything else heavy on the vanilla.

    Apple Butter Rum

    I'm impressed this smells so like its name, but maybe it's a little too literal. The smell is warm and nice, but I don't know that this is something I want to wear. Maybe put into baths in small amounts would be nice. I don't think BPAL's apple note is the best for me, which is a shame, as something a bit fruitier might have relieved the heavy rum.

    2017 Eusapia I was hoping for more lilac, but it's coming out strongly lemon and tea scented. Which isn't bad, and there is some soft lilac beneath the sour notes! It's a nice delicate blend, but I'll have to keep searching for my perfect lilac.

    Blackcurrant Sufganiyot

    Right out of the bottle, this was overwhelmingly sweet. I was a little afraid to put it on, it smelled so strongly of jam and nothing else! After some time on my skin it mellowed, and the pastry notes became a little more prominent. This isn't going to be an everyday scent, but I think for occasions when I want to feel festive and cozy it'll be perfect.

    Rosewood, anyone?

    Between Your Heart and Mine from the Crimson Peak collection has a SUPER strong rosewood note.

    Scent to match book thread!

    Ooh, this sounds fun! Anyone got any recommendations for Agatha Christie novels?

    Ozone, Ozone, Ozone!

    Here's another vote for Mary Shelley- it's got this weird unsettling but oddly pretty feel to it from the ozone and labdanum.
