    I am a writer and a poet and I enjoy scents with beautiful lyrical names. I love all things flower and herb (in my perfumes and in all other aspects of my life). I like to cook and bake all different manner of things, but sadly I do not like scents inspired by food. My heroes are all goddesses and witches and bawdy sexy hedonistic individuals who lead life by the belt

    Velvet Void

    i really really want to love velvet void because just look at that note list. it smells very rich and heady in the bottle, like elderberry liqueur. unfortunately a lot of the complexity disappears on my skin. i hate to say it but it kind of reminds me of a cheap berry scented body wash. not because of any soapiness or anything but because all i get is a generic “berry” sort of scent. i’m still keeping it for two reasons, the first is because it does make a great layering scent and also because i’m holding out hope that with enough time the skin scent will match the in the bottle scent

    resurrecting this thread because i realized recently how much i love saffron. it does amazing things some faves are tonka bean and saffron duet, celeste, kimi ga da wei, mors syphilitica, love's philopsophy, grooming scene in a brothel, very grievous murraine, luke 10:25-37, crimson, lacus odii, qandisa, some strangeness in the proportion.

    Creamy Tonka Bean Scents?

    omg if you can find amber, cacao, tonka hairgloss it's amazing. i believe the LEs great basin woodnymph and rubber poop also fit the bill but haven't personally tried either.

    i was lucky enough to acquire a bottle of this second hand. in the bottle the nuttiness is like whoa. i agree with some other folks that the nuttiness gives it a warm quality without entering "foodie" territory. the nuttiness is so strong in the bottle that i couldn't get any other notes, but once on the skin the patchouli comes out to play and harmonizes SO perfectly with the nut. it's definitely possible that there's more to this but that's really all i get. totally possible that there's some musk in this however, black musk on me tends to go powdery and i'm not registering that here ETA after an hour or so into the drydown the nuttiness fades and leaves behind the most gorgeous sweetened patchouli

    Tonka Bean & Pink Pepper

    ok not sure what i was expecting but “pink” and “girly” are perfect descriptions. this smells to me like melon bubblegum! more candylike than pure fruit, but def sweet and pink and fun.

    Visions of Autumn VII

    this is like the ultimate tobacco scent. tobacco tends to amp on me and dominate whatever blend it's in. this is like the most ethereal, delicate, powdery tobacco. it dominates but isn't just a single note cologney tobacco. it's gorgeous and only gets better into the drydown, with the tobacco warming and increasing in throw. definitely agree it's a very comforting, cozy scent

    let me preface this by saying i love hecate. something about the powdery myrrh does amazing things to the almond, which can sometimes be too cloying or generic for me otherwise. i’m not sure what it is, maybe the almond, but this disappears off my skin SO FAST. after an hour it’s a distant memory. other than that she’s gorgeous

    Visions of Autumn IV

    in the bottle the orange blossom is coming out full force. this is cool because i’m not a fan of lemon verbena and that makes me nervous in a blend, but also too much orange blossom goes to soap on me so could also be potentially a downside. on the skin the citrus-white florals are balanced perfectly with the myrrh. they complement each other and blend well. there’s not much change in the dry down for me: big white blossoms dusted with some golden incense powder. i say powder because myrrh does tend to go powdery on me, and it does in this blend, but not in a talcy baby powder way. very good throw on this. every time i turn my head i catch a whiff. it reminds me of like an old fashioned dusting powder

    Laura Belle McDaniel

    as a tobacco lover, i’m sad to say i don’t pick much of it up in here. that’s okay tho because laura belle is beautiful no matter what. this is basically all carnation all the time on me. cool carnations with their spiciness enhanced by some of the other elements. it’s a little more bright and vanillic in the bottle and they blossom more on the skin, with the vanilla lingering around the edges for me and a little powderiness but mostly just big velvety carnation. decent throws and laaaaasts forever on me without much morphing

    i received an imp of lyonesse in a secondhand purchase from someone, and i decided to test it. it’s been on my want list so happy to get the chance, and even fresh out of the mailbox i can see why it seems to be such a popular scent! two swipes from the wand are enough to create a test patch with serious throw and this is phenomenally gorgeous. very much a perfumey blend the way everything blends so seamlessly. to me the vanilla and lilies are the stand outs but it’s more the vibe of them than actually being able to pick them out of the blend. they give it a clean, cologne sort of vibe, but they temper each other to keep lyonesse from becoming a pure soap or axe body spray type of scent. definitely agree with above descriptions of woody, but like a huskiness rather than in a wood shavings way; more like that with a bit of saltiness from the ambergris combine to give it a sort of aquatic driftwood vibe. the aquatic nature keeps this from being something i would want a full bottle of so i’m glad to have a sample size. even still i can definitely see why this is so well loved and looking forward to future tests after letting the imp settle and age!

    Gacela of the Dark Death

    this is interesting and once again showcases the lab’s mastery of a 3 note blend. the clove is dominate for me in the bottle as well as on the skin, but somehow different and non foodie than most clove blends i’ve tried. the evergreens definitely streamline and compliment the spiciness without being very noticeable on their own for me. very well blended, and i would agree with other reviews calling it unisex. great throw and lasts a good 6 hours before starting to fade on me

    Solved Mysteries

    this is the holy grail of red musks for me. perfect blend of clean-dirty-sexy musk. well blended and can’t really pick out any notes except a glorious, velvety red musk. i wish i got the jump on this when it was live because i need many back ups of this

    Disembodied Malevolent Laughter

    this is amazeballs but very hard to pin down. not sure what i was expecting but i tend to fear the worst when it comes to citrus and usually get furniture cleaner, sweet tarts, or both, from most citrus/fruity blends. however, thanks to bpal i can’t refuse dark resins. as others have said this is definitely a very cologne like blend. the white musk/lemon seem to combine into a soapy fragrance in the bottle but they are almost completely overtaken as this dries into a sweet clean unisex cologne scent with good throw and good lasting power. the lighter notes blend seamlessly to give a fresh brightness without going soapy or candy like, and if you’re nervous about citrus like me there’s no distinct trace of it. my guess as to the resins would be possibly some nag champa. i’m reminded of something but can’t place what
