    Dark Lace

    I know it's bad right out of the mail but figured there'd be interest in first impressions. Dark is old house wood dark rich tobacco and mildew with some dirt but powdery a bit boozy- very complex. I love the complexity it seems like even a whisper of leather in the dry down. I don't get any of the vanilla cream but I have to say the dry down is gorgeous in that complexity. Another beautiful lace which I will be reaching for.

    Silver Lace

    I know it's bad right out of the mail but figured there'd be interest in first impressions. Silver Lace is glorious. Stars out skin musky and light green grass vaguely like dandelions and concrete? Wet Reminds me of one of the cemeteries and dry down is maybe is one of the unicorns - like deVos or allegory of chastity with that sheer vanilla. I reapplied when I got home but the stay power was really good. Keep huffing it.

    It's way more subtle than I expected from the description. Wet down it has red/patch with a hint of rose. Dry that all goes to a more elegant but slightly soured wine mixed with vanilla and the peony. Not sure I need a whole bottle but I'm tempted because I think this will age well.

    Shipwreck Graveyard

    Wowza. I'm not sure I love the wet wood of the wet down but the dry has me swooning. The wet down had me worried it was going to be hard wood all through but on my skin the dry is a deep woody musk that has me huffing my wrist.

    Wet down on me this is an artisanal grape soda but dry it settles into something more complex. I keep trying to figure it out. I forget about it and then get a whiff and it lifts me spirits. That in itself makes me want more of it. the dry dry down has that whisper of musk and cashmere close to the skin. I'm a wine and red fruit lover so I this needs to be in the rotation.

    Wow this one is really a surprise. I am not a big amber lover but the dry down is a powdery musk which is making me want a bottle. The leather is brown and really subtle. Gorgeous.

    Shadow Lace

    Its's a few days out of the mail now. In the bottle it's a cologne-dark-fruit with a bit of booze. Wet down it has a sort of an expensive perfume powdery element which makes me think of white musk with some ethereal incense and a hint of plum. I am not getting tobacco on its own but knowing it in other laces I can see that its there but I have to look for it. Dry it's faintly plum powder. The effect is super-elegant and sophisticated. To me it's one of the incredibly complex scents that reminds me of department store perfume I would go for. I adore it.

    The Earth Mother

    This one reminds me of a graveyard style scent on dry-down. It has all the forest/grass elements with a gorgeous dirt note - which I agree is dry - I want to say baked clay. The wet is almost boozy on me and masculine, but the dry down has the wondrous dirt with the pitch/pine that lingers.

    The Stream and the Waterfall

    I'm insane about this one. Reminds me of Beneath the Kotatsu- which it doesn't resemble but I think it's because it's def Shunga-like. I'd say peach and pencil shavings on wet then this amazing delicate creamy floral/fruit thing with the cedar on dry which makes it amazing. It's really subtle and ends up close to the skin which is why I think it reminds me of Kotatsu.

    Diabolical Fantasia

    I'm trying it tonight and I can't stop sniffing myself. It's a sophisticate. A hit of the bitter orange on my skin but the other notes all integrate and are darn amazing the smoke and the musk marry the tobacco - I generally don't like tobacco but it's a like a suggestion of it. The musk comes out on dry down. The orange is rindy and really works. It's gorgeous but the throw is short. Definitely going to need a wand cap or a lotion layer.

    Calumet 412

    Out of decant I get all of those notes together except for the aftershave - it stands out as faintly lavender lingering. I love oriental style perfume and I wouldn't say it's strongly that, it has a hint of it and the oak and bay rum. Wed down it has a slightly sour -not sure how its going to end up element. As it dries it morphs on me and the woods come up through the cologne. What is utterly entrancing me is what's left behind on the dry down. It's that sheer vanilla powder I hold so dear and I can't stop huffing my arm.

    The Magician’s Garden

    Flos campi and lilium convallium, Rose of Sharon and Lily of the Valley: the blossoms of transcendence and spiritual aspiration. First sniff was pollen heavy floral like orange blossom. Wet down I get intense white flower, I am not a lily/lily of the valley fan but I can imagine this is a white flower fan's dream. The flowers are dusky with almost a medicinal base, so not bright. I could see this being a contemplative scent. It dries down powdery white flowers taking on a department store style classic perfume element as it settles. I can't do white flowers but if I could I'd be all over this.

    The Legerdemain

    The twilight in between the stage performer and the Magus; the sleight of hand trick transforms into true sorcerous skill: black silken musk, dark clove, guiac wood, black pepper, frankincense, and cardamom. Herbal wood-spice and a little soapy. Turns into more soap-with a funky wet wood underlying. Some mineral like wet stone and a little alcohol like sniffing an herbal liquor. It’s the funkiness I don’t like, while I can imagine that might be exactly the perfect scent for someone else. It’s not my thing. I expect the funk comes from the clove/cardamom blend. I like both those spices on their own but obviously not together.

    The Harlequin

    Lemon Lime soda and tart-sweet I can see the raspberry - very bright and sweet like bright jam. Dry Down - It's pretty - very summery berry = light and sweet. It has a tendency towards soapy on me. I think it’s too light for me, although I can imagine it would fantastic for the summer.

    The Magician’s Belt

    The Ouroboros, the serpent as he consumes his own tail. Within this everlasting cycle, the spirit is reborn into eternity: frankincense, white rose, balsam, almond flower, and benzoin. The Magician’s Belt is the 2nd darkest. Belt is amazing, I may need a bottle. Sweet sugar with flowers and a spritz of citrus lime, really complex. This one is a hit. It has a cologne style to it - but light. Limes and white rose - which makes sense as it's very fresh rose. The benzoin must be the lime/citrus. The rose is like fresh rose petal kind, not the powdery old lady rose. Drydown it morphs to white rose which lingers on and on.
