    Golden Amber, Cacao, and Tonka Bean Hair Gloss

    Wet: A little bit spiced, like a cocoa-dusted cookie. Dry: Smoky, perfumy amber jumps in. Wow, this one is super strong. Drydown: waxy, perfumy amber. Getting a distinct cotton note here, as well.

    Peach, Vanilla Pod & Frankincense

    Sweet peach and incense. There's not much vanilla to my nose.

    The Challenge of the Ascetic

    When first applied, there's this green, leafy note with the soft sandalwood and frankincense. On the drydown, it's waxy and warm, with a light woody-resinous base.

    Wild Rose & Cherry

    Airy fresh rose, with cherry providing some fruity sweetness. Like a more airy, less sweet and less lemony Lush Rose Jam.

    Alleviate the Frenzy

    2019 version: On me, this is a round, soft, peachy, musky amber. It does have a bit of saltiness, which cuts down on the sweetness. I really like this scent and am going to buy the hair gloss that came out this year.

    Voluminous Red Blanket

    High-end, fancy oudh incense with a hint of cherry and rose. Not indolic at all. Not bad, but not my style.
  7. RedPersimmon

    Pulmonary Valve

    A little sharp--maybe the musk or the tobacco flower. Soapy and a little heady overall.
  8. RedPersimmon

    Right Ventricle

    Mouthwatering citrus burst in the beginning. Dries to a faint, resinous citrus-benzoin.
  9. RedPersimmon

    Sinoatrial Node

    Cheery, light. Lemon ginger apple, then champagne gets stronger. Verges on lemon cleaner.
  10. RedPersimmon

    Left Atrium

    Starts out citrusy and fresh, but ends as dryer sheets.
  11. RedPersimmon

    Chordae Tendineae

    Red musk softened by amber and orange blossom, with carnation providing a touch of spice.
  12. RedPersimmon

    Cake Smash v6

    I've never tried the original, either. On me, this is a foodie vanilla with a big dose of almond.

    Blueberry Pumpkin Muffins Hair Gloss

    Pumpkin spiced muffins with a bit of blueberry. The blueberry note was more pronounced when wet. Pretty strong if you spray it on your hair near your face! I could smell it all day and it's still almost overwhelming. Next time, I will make sure to spray it more on the back of my head.

    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.
