    Sherlock Holmes

    A smooth, kinda sweet, watery fougere. As mentioned before, this is a cousin to Jareth and Dorian. I really like this! Yummy without being foody. A hint of strawberry. I feel like this has tobacco flower in it. I don't get the Lab's usual deep, dark tobacco here. It has that clean and round thing going on and when it's done right, tobacco flower is one of my favorite notes. Probably has white tea in it, too.

    Honeyed Champaca Blossom and Basmati Rice

    I get beautiful, nutty, fresh-from-the-rice-cooker basmati rice when I first apply it, but then the champaca keeps getting stronger and stronger until it just takes over. I think I'd like the basmati rice note paired with something that isn't so strong.

    Crêpe Aux Fraises

    I put a little of this on my collar and I was immediately transported to a glorious strawberry vanilla cream cloud! This is much better when it's not directly on my skin. It's not the artificial strawberry that is so prevalent these days - I think the orange zest helps.

    Starts out smelling like chocolate, fried dough, and almond cookies, but ends up as nutty gingerbread on me.

    Mmm, tropical fruit! The banana was an interesting addition, too.

    Womb Furie

    Acquired an aged sniffie of this, which smelled lovely in the imp. On skin, it became baby wipes. Not TOO surprised, since Snake Oil doesn't work on me.

    Old Demons of the First Class

    Root beer + patchouli. Like Server Gremlins but more opaque, less sheer. I like it best when it's applied lightly. Drydown is a bit smoky and warm. Full. Vanilla without the sweetness. And a touch of something like soft tobacco. Large, warm, cozy, enveloping. Also a bit perfumy--the musk, perhaps? This phase reminds me of Odin. Powdery, deep, masculine but not bitter.

    Meditation Buddy

    Lavender and white rose come out first. The opening is actually pretty nice, considering I don't like lavender blends (but love lavender essential oil by itself). It must be the spices and sandalwood incense. The salt crystal note reminds me of the Air and the Ether. After it dries, it becomes a waxy skin scent. Perhaps the vanilla will come out more later on. Hold up! Drydown kicks back up, with a sheer rose vanilla frank. Very soft, but it's there. Citrus rose and incense now. I love this blend!

    Scorched Marshmallows

    Beautiful in the bottle, but dries down ashy. Unappealing sour, burnt smell at the end.

    Absurd Origin Story

    Decarbonated Coke/root beer and then marshmallow vanilla. Yum! This would be a bottle purchase if it didn't disappear so fast.

    Wet: Honey and frankincense with a hint of spice and a vegetal note. Dry: peach cobbler. Drydown: sheer, salty, spicy apple. This is one of my favorites

    The Misty Marshmallow Sugarbunnies of Niflhel

    Very, very fruity-sweet.

    Roof Goblins

    Tart apples and milk and then it kind of fades away pretty quickly.
  14. RedPersimmon


    Spicy, pine-y, and foresty. And then: bug spray.

    Wet: burnt, bitter, vetiver-like. Copal, is that you? Google tells me chapapote = tar/pitch/oil. Dry: corn, honey, cacao. Becomes softer, honey tames the chapapote. Honey isn't too heady. This is balanced and soft. One of my favorites!
