    A Humorous Jest

    I bought this the second I saw the words "blueberry musk." Imagine my surprise when I opened it this AM--after a few days' rest from the mail--and got a STRONG vinegar smell in the bottle. As in true fruit vinegar, very sour. I took my chances, thinking that maybe it was just bottle-tight, and I was right. In the bottle: Room temperature was strong fruit vinegar, but after going out and having the bottle in my pocket, it's a lot more blueberry juice. On, wet: Blueberries with a sort of...skin musk? Hard to put a finger on it, blueberries definitely front and center with something else that's a bit sweet and floral but with something non-fruit and non-floral but very clean. Drydown: Many hours later, I still have that blueberry thing going on, with a bit sweeter floral and musk thing. This one is all about the blueberry front and center, backed up by skin musk of some sort. Not really getting the individual floral notes; it's more of a solid form scent ie not a morpher on me. This one is key if you are fans of the Lab's blueberry scent but don't want another gourmand!

    Cloak

    OK this is a Must Have if you like the Lab's darker/earthier patch/resin notes. In the bottle: Not playing around here; this is all dark musk, patch, and tarry sweet incense. On, wet: The sweeter notes of the sweet patch, cypress, nd benzoin come out to play. Drydown: Long, slow morpher, on me at least. Takes several hours to fully develop; lands on me as a dark, funky, inky patch with a small hit of incense sweetness. Sits close to the skin so low throw after initial drydown, but long morphy weartime!

    Stainless Steel Dildo

    This is such a fun one. In the bottle: Fizzy, fruity aldehyde; reminds me of Spinning Multicolored Metallic Pinwheel a little bit, for fans of that. On, wet: Getting a combo of a bit of sharp herbal notes and a tiny hint of...grape? Dries down to stay very close to the skin, low throw...getting a sheer light aldehyde with pops of stainless steel almost. Very low throw and alas short wear length, OTOH this would make a great scent for a very hot day when you don't want to sweat out clouds of heavy stuff. Very pretty actually, in a sophisticated way.

    Auxilium

    This is so gorgeous and calming. I wind up with a rose and resinous wood blend mix, which may be the "medicinal" part that some people get with this. Also getting little bursts of citrusy resins. Wore it yesterday by itself; layered with Citrine HG today for an extra bright boost.
  5. Utterly gorgeous sexy rose with an amazing spicy floral musk. Stays on forever and gets better and better as the day goes on. Wore it yesterday by itself; woke up today and it still smelled amazing. Re-applied today and layered with Snow White. Really nice.

    Black Ice Sleeper

    Getting "Frostbitten" and Black Ice vibes here on this one, bigtime. In the bottle: I immediately read this as a sort of Frostbitten darkish apple. On, wet: Opens up to a somewhat sweeter fresh pressed apple juice note, along with a few more fruit hits, wrapped up in a kind of dark herby note, almost like my ancient bottle of Black Ice. Drydown: I'm left with a mix of dark almost bitter herbs -- but not too strong --with a sort of deep resonant fruit juice note under it. Definitely some kind of halfway point between Frostbitten notes and Black Ice, with some fruit. Low throw on me, medium wear length.

    Honeysuckle & Wisteria

    Is exactly what it sounds like and is absolutely gorgeous. Long wear, medium throw.

    Don’t Lick It

    Okay, I realize that this may be a matter of skin chemistry, but if anyone is still jonesing for a bottle of the original Snowblind, this comes pretty darn close! I have a bunch of previous year's Lick It iterations, and this one has a lot more vanilla and powdered sugar in it. In the bottle: Freshly-unwrapped old-timey candy cane. On, wet: Yes, these ARE the Starlight Mints that used to be sold in the bulk candy section of supermarkets. But then...quickly dries down to a really lovely minty vanilla frosting sort of thing? Like what you would get on a really high end fancy peppermint cupcake at a super fancy place that has crushed candy canes sprinkled on top/in the filling. So nice!

    Sugar Skull

    Haven't opened my Sugar Skull 2021 yet, but I reached for 2020 today after doing some box reorganization. Add me to the list of folks who are wondering if the formulation is being gradually tweaked. See my review above for my ancient bottle of 2004. This is a totally different thing; a lot darker and deeper. In the bottle: Molasses and sweet, fruity tobacco, almost like the flavored/cherry tobaccos that they sell in old-timey tobacco shops (NOT the modern artificial crappy ones or vape juice). On, wet: Brown sugars and almost burnt sugar, like deep caramel, and with that lingering note of a freshly opened package of fruity tobacco. Also almost getting a hint of maple sugar. Drydown: Yep, still sticky pipe tobacco, caramel, and molasses. Not what I was expecting but I like it!

    Wasteland World

    So glad that I was able to score a bottle of this! It's very much in line with the other steampunky offerings by the Lab. In the bottle: Getting something like the old creosote-treated railroad ties, and a hint of motor oil. On, wet: The motor oil note really opens up, along with a quick blast of leather. Drydown: Not really getting a lot of the promised botanicals; but I DO get a lovely perfect blend of leather, machine shop oil, and a bit of that creosote and dust thing. Really liking it! It really nails the "grease" note!

    Execute Confession Module

    Finally getting around to reviewing this one! I am a total sucker for ALL of the BPAL "musk" notes, but black musk is one of my faves so of course I had to get this. In the bottle: Strong black pepper with a very faint hit of something vaguely sweet/floral. On, wet: The black pepper heats up almost immediately, as does the white musk, which really does weave and clash with the black musk. Faint whiffs of the clove, which is great, because I tend to over-amp clove sometimes depending on the blend. Right after opening up, the white musk floats to the top a bit more. Drydown: This settles in closer to the skin than I thought it would; as noted I can amp clove as well as black musk. In a very odd way this reminds me of a Lace; getting a tiny bit of that herbal note in there somewhere; maybe the white musk? If this were a Lace I would call it "Black and White Houndstooth Trimming Lace." It's this interplay of fresh notes and heavy notes. Low throw.
  12. I was a little worried about the geranium in this one when I bought it blind, as that note can sometimes go kind of bitter/funky on me. Not to worry! In the bottle: Peach and pom juice, with a bit of something herbal in the background. On, wet: A kind of warm, woody note steps up a bit -- maybe the black musk? It also elevates and amps up the peach note. Drydown: I'm left with sun-warmed peaches with a kind of spicy herby musk blend behind it. The peaches stay front and center in this one, which is what I was aiming for. I have to say, the whole "peaches" line that this is from has been outstanding.

    Poltergeist

    Wow, wasn't sure what to expect of this one which is why I got it. How to describe this one? Imagine a New Year's Eve party with the adults in one room, the kids in the other, and cleanup afterwards. In the bottle: Something like cocoa powder and kid's punch of grape soda and gingerale. On, wet: A bit more of a spicy note and woody note comes up, along with a teeny hit of tobacco. Dry: Dark woody note with lingering hits of soda/champagne punch, some kind of background spice, and a tiny hit of burnt cocoa powder. Really says "after the party."

    Snekhellden

    This reminds me of Snake Skin but with something extra. In the bottle: Getting a blast of extra-sweet Snake Oil with some kind of red fruit, almost. On, wet: The sweet smoke/incense note bursts forth FAST and leaves a slight whiff of white florals in its wake...to be followed by a slowly developing deep, dry dark leather smeared with Snake Oil. The final drydown version on me is a gorgeous sophisticated leather thing; very glad I got a backup. Think of a less "fetish club" version of Snake Skin that's more about the dry leather. SO nice on.

    Marshmallows, Gumdrops, and Peppermint Canes

    If you want even more peppermint, seek out any and all of the Lick It variations -- all strong peppermint all the time! Oh MY am I glad I got this. I was on the fence at first because I really didn't need another peppermint-centric scent, nor did I want another gourmand that was heavy on the cloves. This gorgeous blend is NEITHER on me. In the bottle: Very soft peppermint and anise, with only the slightest bit of spice. Very bottle-tight. Once I put it on, the magic really starts. On, wet: Total old-timey candy shop vibes! When I was a little girl growing up, Mom would make the most amazing gingerbread houses and we'd go to this one old school candy shop to get the candy ribbons and other stuff to decorate it with. This reminds me of that shop. On, wet, the peppermint really calms down to more of a peppermint creme, and more of a Marshmallow Peep note and Easter Basket jellybean and gumdrop note creeps up. This all dries down to a really pleasant, close-to-the-skin, gently sweet candyshop thing; getting vibes along the lines of those different-flavored after dinner puffy cream candies that have a stripe of some kind of flavor in the middle, mixed with aforementioned Peeps, spicy gumdrops, and jellybeans. The peppermint pretty much melts into the background and only comes forth as a creme note.
