    Drops of of Amontillado

    This deepens into something super boozy and interesting on me, maybe a bit musty in a good way???? I was concerned because I didn't really care for Lady Macbeth, which is a wine scent, but this one is fairly different. Perfect for its name! Very decadent.

    The Lights of Men's Lives

    Got this as a frimp and had no idea which line it was from, and upon research, it's one of my new faves! Both the story and the scent are beautiful, and I got compliments from those around me when I wore it. Yay for trying new things!

    Aeval - Resurrected

    Never tried the original. This reminds me a lot of the Sweet Pea lotion my mom used to wear from Bath and Body Works. It's also a very shy scent on me, it really takes a lot to get any throw from it. It is a beautiful feminine scent, just weak on me.

    Ultraviolet - Resurrected

    Never tried the original so I don't have a point of reference. But, out of the imp, this one scared me a little bit. Very medicinal, something very sharp. But once it goes on, it softens out and I get something besides Eucalyptus. Interesting!

    Abe Sapien

    I've discovered that me and aquatics don't usually get along, but Abe is my dude so I had to give this a shot. And I actually like it pretty well! Honestly, the drydown on it goes almost incense/resin-y on me, which is weird. But it's nice, and I've actually received a few compliments on it in just a day of wear.

    Oh man, this is one that I was not expecting to love as much as I did! It's so romantic and wonderful and lasts forever on me

    Embalming Fluid

    I got this on a very hot and muggy day and wore it for a job interview, received a compliment the minute I walked in the door, and aced the interview. So obviously, it's very magical stuff.

    This is going to be fabulous during Alabama summer. Light enough to be wearable in the heat, spicy enough for me to actually like it. Love it!

    Lady MacBeth

    I was nervous about this one because in the imp it was straight up fake grape candy, and that's not really my thing. BUT when it is on the skin, it depeened out for me into something kind of dark and wine-y as opposed to candy, so this is a definite yes for me. Good staying power too. I even received a few compliments!

    I hope Mr. Gray accepts the position as my new boyfriend, because this ish is beautiful! I was a little nervous to try this one seeing as I usually go for spicy scents, and I was worried about it being too masculine, but oh my God, it's wonderful. I believe the hype on this one.

    The Infernal Lover

    Managed to snatch a little bit of this on eBay and I am in LOVE. Me and red musk must get along really well, because this one just works super well for me. I'm a bit sad this relationship might be over a bit prematurely though, seeing as how this is an LE from like...eight years ago. But still, better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all.

    Baobhan Sith

    Oooh, this is gonna be the perfect thing to take with me on my spring break! Super light and sparkly clean.

    Bruised Violet Compound

    This was my first frimp ever, and while it smells wonderful and I love it, it just doesn't seem to last on me. It's wonderful in my diffuser though. I've never been one for violets, but this one is very dark and velvety. My roommate described it as a sexy funeral home scent, and I agree!
