    Lemon, Lemon, Lemony Goodness

    Calliope is pure lemon, and is divine.

    Frumious Bandersnatch

    Spicy licorice plums! It smells like jelly beans, but in a more delicate way. I am really glad I got to try this one, the fruit and spice is cheerful and bright, like a children's party outside. Once dry, the carnation comes out more fully on my skin and I love it.

    Mouse's Long and Sad Tale

    Yummy!! What a wonderful tale Mouse has to tell. The vanilla is wonderful, and the sweet pea is a perfect garnish. I am reminded of sweetened vanilla tea, and as it dries it becomes something more somber...maybe it is the sandalwood? Some of the sweetness departs and I am left hoping it will come back. I want more of this one!

    Slightly herbal, but soft. I love the sandalwood in this one, the blend isn't overpowering. The iris gives it a floral edge, but the spark of herbal quickly drowns that out. I like the hint of spice, it seems a very mature and sensual fragrance.

    Queen Gertrude

    Queen Gertrude is a gentle floral, with violet being the note that comes forward with a soft kick. This blend also has the illusion of roses to me, which reminds me of a more mature type of fragrance. It is lovely though, a formal scent fit for a queen.

    The Caterpillar

    The jasmine drowns out every other note in this blend, thus making the Caterpillar crawl on my skin in a sickly manner. Go away you annoying jasmine-laden bug.

    I love the bay scent to this one, very dried crumbled herbs and wine. It is very sweet, yet dusty at the same time. It has serious staying power, and softens beautifully. Like Evilmistressoftoast says, there is a hallucinated rose effect to it which I like much better on me than the real rose.

    Melon melon melon! I was hoping for more of the dark smoke scent of tobacco, but a spicy cantaloupe overwhelms me. I can detect a bit of the honey though. The boyfriend insists it is baby powder, but then the cantaloupe insisted he was wrong.
  9. Mimicake


    Something in the imp reminds me of strong tobacco, but I muddled through that to try it. It is a very piercing green at first, and the rose blend is one completely different from the other roses I've tried. On my skin, my chemistry revolts against it and I sadly find it is one that I cannot wear.

    The King of Hearts

    Cherries and a bit of lavender make a winning combination while wet. As it dries, the almond is more prominent as is the musk. Very red and purple, very regal. Something in the blend stings my skin a bit, but I like it enough to wear it anyway.

    Garden Path With Chickens

    I have found my dream scent. A combination of light florals, bright greens and a twist of herbs. This is exactly what I want in a fragrance, and it softens so beautifully I could not believe it. Even the man said he liked it, which is a rare thing indeed. I swapped for a decant of this, and would beat up my grandmother in order to get a whole bottle. This is a beautiful work of fragrance art.

    Monster Bait: Bloody Mary

    Why waste time chanting her name in the mirror 13 times? Bedevil your next slumber party the easy way! Chunky, glistening red fruits with sweet cream accord, black clotted cherry, and powdered sugar! Sugary goodness, the raspberry fades rather quickly on my skin leaving behind a lush expanse of fruited sugar. I smell like luxury candy and I cannot quit sniffing my wrists! The artwork on the bottle is beautiful too.

    MMM. Sweet yet smokey, soft yet powerful. This one reminds me of Sheol, but the dry down doesn't have as much kick as Sheol does. I like this one though, the first bloom of it is heady and makes me want to keep it wet on my wrist.

    #20 Love Oil

    The reviews say that most get spicy licorice scent from this, but I didn't. It was more of an almond herbal to me, and only very lightly herbal to me. There is a touch of sweet, but it is not a sweet fragrance. I like it much better than the other almond ones I've tried, but I don't think I'd want a large bottle of this.

    Lick It Again

    I loved the bottle of Lick It that I managed to get, so when I was able to get Lick It Again I was thrilled. They are similar, but to me the peppermint of the Lick It Again was more pronounced, and the sugary vanilla much less so. After it dries, the peppermint fades and there is a hint of sugared vanilla that remains. It doesn't have much staying power, but I love it.
