    This is one of my favorite of this year's Lilith's batch. It starts off with lavender and quickly, the other notes creep in. I mainly get honey dust, white patchouli and a smidge of lavender on the dry down. I think the puppy paws might be a type of musk which is blending well with the patch to ground everything. The effect is very well-blended, and somehow comforting.

    Cannibal Lady Macbeth

    Wow, this is a sexy one. To me it comes on as a strong fig and smoky oud. Then the patch kicks in. There's a dark but fuzzy layer of musk grounding everything. Total winner for those who like musky dark scents.

    Cold Moon 2020

    Cold moon starts off as a cold, frosty, chocolate milkshake and then some winter outdoor elements, like fir/spruce and maybe even a little snow come out. It's basically like enjoying a milkshake outside in winter. I'm here for it.

    Honey Taffy Smut

    I get what the fuss is about. It smells just like bit-o-honey taffies from back in the day mixed into a sexy, boozy sugary concoction. Overall impression is a honey/brown sugar scent with a kick.

    Flickering Lights, Fluttering Curtains

    This is lovely. It opens as soft billows of vanilla and (to my nose, oddly), a tiny burst of citrus. It may be the florals and amber reading differently to me, but that's what makes this a very bright scent until it settles into what seems like a Lace scent, as others have said. After a few minutes, the smokiness comes out but it's very faint, just rounding the scent out and keeping it from being too sweet. It still smells like clouds of vanilla a few hours later. Beautiful.

    Just bought this off the FB page and to me, this is 100% red twizzlers x snake oil. and i'm not complaining. it's kinda odd, and quirky, and a little bit yummy, and somewhat pretty, and a little bit messy. which maybe---that's what actual Motherhood is a bit like too.

    Dragon Side-Eye

    This one is delicious! and i'm very happy as most of the other fruit/musk blends go super duper powdery on me. I think the musk in this one is gorgeous, warm and sexy. It dries to a mostly a sweet peach/musk blend with a little background kick form the bergamot. And the throw is pretty good (though i'm only an hour in).

    Berliner Dom Antics

    This is the only Yuletide with Lilith release I took a chance on, because I went CRAZZZAY with Yules. It’s not what I expected, but it is delicious. Wet: Ginger, ginger, ginger. And...cinnamon? No patch. Drydown: Still mostly ginger and something akin to cinnamon (which I amp, so if there’s a tiny drop in there that would do it). A little bit of patchouli is poking out, but it’s very subtle. Also there’s a cool wintry streak that may be that snow note frizzlechicken mentioned. 2 hour later: Yummy Gingerbread and a little more earthy patch keeping it from being foodie. I like this, but I was hoping for more patch than ginger, and to me it’s the other way around.

    Well, I am super late to this party, but I'm very glad I came...This may be skyrocketing immediately into my top 10. It starts of heavy on the patchouli, and like others have said, it's Banshee Beat-remniscent (another favorite). There's also something foodie-like, as well as floral, from the honeysuckle/vanilla. After a few minutes, the leather starts to come to life and while it isn't prominent on me, it is lending a fuzzy coziness, just like a worn brown saddle or vintage jacket. There is a bubbliness to it as well, but it's faint and under the surface so-to-speak; the sasparilla, perhaps? After an hour-—the patch has taken a backseat and it's mostly a sweetened, warm leather with a little cream soda and a dusting of sweet pollen. In love

    Abolish ICE

    I was really hoping I would like this because it's for a cause I truly believe in. But alas, this is a big nope on me. I don't get any coffee, mostly clove, vanilla, and something akin to stale cardboard like @roseus experienced... it's very much just clove on me at first, which i am not surprised about because i amp clove. 20 minutes in, the toffee has appeared and now i have a sugary-sweet toffee'd up clove dancing around that odd cardboard-y note. I *do* feel an interesting "heat" from this, but instead of being cozy and warming, it's more of a clove-y-plasticky-toffee that has been microwave'd. In fact, my partner said I smelled like "Indian food" . And while personally i'm not sure how he gets THAT connotation, it's certainly not what i'm going for!

    Eyeball Seaboar Alchemy Lab

    Scratched at the last minute on the advice of our legal counsel, who was afraid people might misunderstand and pour the perfume directly into their eyes. “For External Purposes Only Seaboar” just doesn’t have the same ring to it. White sandalwood, sweet patchouli, sea salt, Italian bergamot, and honey. I'm the first, woo! In the bottle: strong, overwhelming salty patch with a hint of sweetness Dry down: I took a chance on the blend, but I'm pleasantly surprised, and this has become a go-to this winter. It has mostly a patchouli base imo, but it's not too "dirty." It's more of a soft patch like in Feed Me/Fill Me or Zoe and the Goat. It might also be mellowed out by the honey, which I find also has a strong presence. The happy surprise for me here is that there is a salt water taffy element that is working very well with these 2 notes, though not as overwhelming as in the bottle. I think this scent will also work well in warmer months because it feels slightly beachy despite the other notes. I also get a little bergamot, which complements the honey just as in tea. Overall, I find this is one of those blends that melds together nearly seamlessly. You can pick out the patch and detect the salt, but you have to really *concentrate* because they are all so intertwined. I don't detect the sandalwood much, but I think perhaps it is just married to the earthiness of the patch. I LOVE THIS! And again, I don't feel this is particularly a cold season scent, and will work well any time of year

    Allen's Big Eared Bat

    Wet: Pale woodiness, some light florals with something...slightly buttery? Dry: Sandalwood!!! Sweet, slightly musky, tobacco flower...There are also some light flowers in the mix (guessing that's rosehips), but they are perfect for someone who isn't THAT into florals, like myself. Overall it does indeed smell fuzzy, warm, and comforting. It's more of a skin scent, but great for wrapping up in a blanket and watching the leaves fall out the window.

    Samhain V1: the Original 2002 Prototype

    Just like @monocainsheresy, this is my first time trying Samhain. And I know it's not the standard version, but boyyyy do i love this one. It smells mostly like fresh, juicy apples to me, but there is a lot of sexier, interesting things going on in the background—an Autumn forest, full of damp pinewood and browning leaves, perhaps a distant chimney or campfire burning, the remnants of a pie crust with vanilla and nutmeg, and some dampness in the air from last night's rain. It smells just like Autumn should—sweet, spicy and robust. I can't stop sniffing my wrist. I have a feeling I'd like newer Samhain as well, but i can't imagine enjoying it as much as this one tbh!

    Kinda Sorta Snake Oil Cream Soda

    Like a lot of people on this thread, I too smell a cream soda when i sniff the bottle. And maybe a little bit when I apply it. But also like some have said already, the cream soda dissipates quickly and all i get is basically snake oil with cinnamon. I am starting to think I amp cinnamon, which is fine because i love that note. This is just not exactly what I'd been hoping for. This dries to a powdery SO with cinnamon and some vanilla in the background, but I'm not getting any cream soda after the the first minute or so.

    All Hallows Chaos: Dead Leaves

    I have #27 In the bottle and wet on skin, it is very strongly dead leaves, but also something very tart...fruity tart. Too strong. But as it dries, this totally morphs into something unusual and exquisite. The tartness is definitely from a fruit, i'm thinking orange or grapefruit here, but I could be way off. The DL stays strong but is kept in check by this fruity element, which goes from sharp and pungent to a soft and sweet. Within an hour, the blend is basically sweetened DL with what seems like a sugared grapefruit, with perhaps a little vanilla and something fuzzy and warm thrown in, like myrrh. It sounds like an odd mix, but it works! EDIT: I don't know if my nose was "off" or if this has really changed since settling more, but now that I've had htis about a week, it opens up with what I can only describe as something very peppery. Almost a green pepper (a little bitter) but spicier than that, like black or pink pepper as well. The tarty fruit is less tart-y now, and this dries to a powdery, peppery, sweet pile of dead leaves.
