    Senator Barrial

    This is so nostalgic for me! My cousins and I used to make boxed cakes at my grandmas house. It was how we learned to bake. This one smells like a red velvet boxed mix. That touch of cocoa is there and red food coloring? How it specifically SMELLS red? I am finding that, too. Definitely on skin pick up butter cream. So glad its not cream cheese Frosting on me. Its tooth achey sweet and delicious! This is a keeper for me.

    Plague Doctor v13

    This was frimped to me. ❤️ in bottle I smelled green and thought “celery”. On skin this smells initially like a blast of celery, ash, tobacco and....pine? Kinda interesting! it is drying off so quickly. Now it snells of ash celery and ..,, thats it. Maybe Cucumber???

    Frankincense, Bourbon Tobacco, & Tonka Bean

    I do not normally like Frank but had to try a blend with Bourbon Tobacco. I am glad I did! This blend has the yummiest caramelized frankincense. It is a gourmand frank on my skin, rich and chewy. This reminds me of If thats the tonka thats contributing to the sweetness, i am down! As far as tobacco, this is reminding me of Bulgarian tobacco. But whatever it is that smells caramelized to me reminds me of the Scottish Tablet in Picture Books in Winter. Really a lovely blend and I am glad I tried it!

    Sugar Plum and Vanilla Bean Atmosphere Spray

    This one to me is like a Yule Sufganiyiot scent. Its a rich jammy fruit and the vanilla leans to a biscuit. It so yummy and rich and I am excited to try this in the fall. It is a tiny bit sour , which I think makes the fruit smell more genuine where as sweeter fruit blends can tend toward candy. Glad to have this!

    Mouse Circus

    Just reviewing for perspective. Just purchased a GS aged bottle and with aging the popcorn disappeared. For my own reference as a popcorn fan, avoid aged bottles. Its now just a simple vanilla scent which is borderline plastic. Thinking the plastic is the polished wood note.

    Plastic Pink Flamingo

    ^just read @doomsday_disco review saying if she ever saw this in a destash she would grab it and giggled cause we both did just that! First I would love an entire collection of this label art. It has a total atomic vibe going on. MCM fans would adore!!! In bottle it is entirely pink marshmallow fluff but on skin becomes a pink sugary marshmallow peep clutching a dear sweet dandelion. It is so pretty. I think more gourmand than girlish. It is the scent I *need*. With the atomic label art and the fluffy green dandelion, it is like a throw back to simpler times. In the best way I feel all cozy and looking to see if any network is running a Wonder Years marathon. I want to create side walk chalk art and sip mojitos.

    Humbug

    In bottle this is all vanilla licorice (all yum) it is sticky. Like a licorice vanilla taffy pull. yum.Almost caramel like, it is gooey. OmG. WET, more licorice and the vanilla has receded. Rather dry, less gourmand at this stage. More unisex right now, not foodie to me at all. Reminds me of the fresh fennel seeds that are available for digestive purposes at indian restaurants. Dry, little more candy vanilla now. The sticky taffy from bottle is gone and now I am getting actual fennel candy. Whatever residual vanilla that's coming out to play is expressing itself as a hard candy shell on the fennel seed. My favorite stage of this is definitely in bottle. It made me order fennel seed candy from amazon. So, I guess i do have a warm association with that scent. Interesting to see what I wear this with, and how often I reach for it.

    House of Mirrors Atmosphere Spray

    Wow! got this in a recent destash with the perfume oil and atmo. Based on some mislabeling incident in 2008 (?) I quickly read reviews to verify I had the right blend as its different from the atmo. I only just realized the atmo IS different and not the same notes in it at all. The vanilla is only in the atmo, and wow. perfect. Still snaring flr those who might, like me, think they are similar. The scents converge about ten minutes in with only mild discrepancies between the named atmo and oil. On application and wet, the oil is more perfumey. Think a collection of mirrors in a bawdy boudoir. A little bit loud, a little bit crass, owning your sex appeal. The bed is round and it rotates. It screams glam in a Bond film. This is the chick 007 lands and she leaves him high and dry. Her name is probably P*ssy Couture. It has a kitschy vintage vibe thats fun. Mae West. The hair gloss has this nice vanilla aspect that is never really defined in the oil. It is respectable. It is Beautiful. This one fits my personality more. Something classy and glassy. It smells like elegance and refinement, like entering a boudoir and being slightly afraid to touch something. Everything is sparkling, Everything is perfectly placed. Everywhere you look something there are delicate feminine touches and all the mirrors reflect them. This is Myrna Loy.

    Lavender Lace

    This is lace that seems to show on destash lists and I wondered why. A friend gifted me a bottle and I got to find out! So this is heavy lavender out of the bottle which to lavender fiends smells like a winner, but to lavender suspicious, or cautious probably freaked you out. It is so strong in bottle. Wet more of the same. I get just a hint of the tobacco and lace notes, but it remains predominantely lavender. I have a feeling at this stage those who are not lavender fiends scrubbed it, and those who are were jumping up and down. But. hold on dear scrubbers, save your soap and water for The Rona! At dry down this becomes a very dominant lace scent with lavender only supporting. It is soft, and almost a skin scent for a lavender blend, but a really good lace blend. I was instantly enthralled and have used this as a sleep scent. I love tobacco and sugary notes and while not gourmand, Its very wearable and pretty without being department store. If you are a lavender curious perfume enthusiast I say watch for this on destashes. It might surprise You! and regardless, ots an interesting lace blend.

    The Instinct of Hope

    A hope chest filled with dreams. A violet corsage stored in a cedar lined hope chest.

    No Man is an Island

    To me this is like the gourmand for your Boi. The sage is clarifying and cassis adds a punch go the sage to keep it resonating. This is a perfect scent for two people 1. The person who only wears foodies and begs to try something else outside their gourmand wheelhouse, This is a good entry into more scent profiles. 2. You think you hate gourmands but really want to be proven otherwise. I really like this scent and am happy to own it.

    Hope

    we are chatting in a group and starfall looked up mimosa flower. It was interesting because when she read that mimosa can have notes of violet I was SHOOK because when I first picked up this bottle I thought I had mistakenly picked up Instinct of Hope as I smelled violet. for me this smells like violets pressed into the pages of a well loved book

    A Glimpse

    Took two hours of wear to get the stank of poop out of it. Why??? These notes read like a dream. Two hours later its a sandalwood single note.

    Orgy with Nine Women

    A friend sent me a decant of this as I am a tobacco fiend and have been experimenting with sugary florals. In vial blast of beeswax/honey so strong I thought I was smelling red musk or even leather. 😮 On skin this almost instantly morphed into a champaca honey blend. ❤️ So pretty and delicate. Not getting any comparison to St Clare or Red Lantern where the tobacco was rich and boozy. This is creamy and pretty. Feminine. It is excited to find a heady floral I can wear, it appears Champaca is it! Jasmine is headache inducing indoles on me and Rose becomes HELLO ROSE GARDEN in every blend. Smelling this blend Also helped me to isolate the creamy floral in “I will be strange, stout, in yellow stockings”. That is a scent I love, and I can attribute it to Champaca.
