    The Elephant is Slow to Mate

    This is absolutely gorgeous. The word "plush" comes to mind. Imagine Snake Oil with red musk and all manners of red fruits, red plush dark velvet roses, and all of the Sexy Dark Red Things. This one is a real morpher and gradually smolders down to this deep, sexy, musky, rosey...thing.. Love it. Need a backup.

    Snake's Kiss Hair Gloss

    I love this scent as a perfume, but it works even better as a hair gloss for layering. It's especially wonderful with any honey, tobacco, or Snake Oil variants! Or even with plain ol' Snake's Kiss perfume!

    Honey Marzipan

    Was looking forward to this, but also with some trepidation as honey can totally amp on me an be overpowering, but I LOVE marzipan. So.....onward. In the bottle: Almost overpowering wave upon wave of dry, powdery honey--almost like the edible honey dusting body powder that some adult stores sell (not that I would ever know anything about that, honest! ) along with a blast of almond extract. On, wet: More honeybomb--opens up like the smell of hard honey candies. Gradually, the almond starts to pipe up and settle down to a bit of marzipan on top of giant rolling waves of honey. Takes a LONG time to dry down and settle down. Once it does, it's a manageable dry honey/sweet almond thing with an afterwhiff of marzipan on the "backsniff." I like it, but I would def consider layering it with something to cut the sweetness, and/or only apply a LITTLE--this is super duper strong on me. Would also be a great winter scent as opposed to a summer scent where if I sweat it off outside it would probably be waaaay too strong. Kind of wish that this one had more marzipan in it but it may just need a rest; it IS very tight in the bottle now.

    Discarded Shamisen Hair Gloss

    This is so gorgeous, and such a great companion to so many of the Shunga perfumes. I am getting a delicious floral blend of fresh peach and cherry blossoms, offset by the orris root and the faintest hint of sweet vanilla. I would pair with any other cherry blossom or peach blossom scent!

    Cherry Blossom Vulva

    Oh, my, this is as nice as I thought it would be. I don't have a whole lot of the "vulva" line, and I didn't even realize that it was A Thing, like Laces. Anyway, starting to get with the program. Today I showered and went out to my greenmarket in the rain and wanted a fresh Spring scent. This did not disappoint. In the bottle: True, fresh-flower cherry blossoms with the gardenia and a hint of honeysuckle. On, wet: The cream note and the plum blossom start to come forward, but it's still all part of a gorgeous, creamy fresh floral blend. I'm almost getting the lightest skin musk from the cream note. Drydown: This retains its floral freshness, with the cream note coming forward as the cherry and plum blossom notes settle down and dry out a teeny bit. Really gorgeous and super femme!

    Ecstatic Dancing Penises

    Got two bottles of this just for the tomato leaf note, which is one of my faves. Did not disappoint. In the bottle: A very green balsam; it's a bit tight in the bottle still. On, wet: Tomato leaf note, benzoin, and wood notes quickly float to the top. The sweet benzoin is like a breeze on top of the main scent, which has the tomato leaf as its standout note. Drydown: This has a long, lovely drydown; end result is a greenish woody mélange with the mahogany as its base, with only slight hits of the patch. Oddly enough, the cardamom is not really showing itself that much if at all; it's kind of blended in with the rest of the green/spice element. The tomato leaf lasts into the drydown where it is still present, just more muted; think crushed dry tomato stems when you twist one tomato off of a bunch from the supermarket. REALLY nice. Definitely a unisex scent also, and as many have observed, it really is like a very high end men's cologne.

    Honey, Black Fig, and Olibanum

    Normally this is a scent that would be out of my instabuy zone, but got it on recommendations. In the bottle: BIG blast of honey and dried fig. On, wet: Total sweet honey bomb, almost overwhelming, which is odd because I usually don't amp honey. LONG drydown, ultrasweet. Took a very long time to calm down. Finally, the resin note kicked in after about 6+ hours and became more balanced. It's still a very sweet scent with a very long throw and last time.

    Silkybat Hair Gloss

    Was lucky enough to score a partial bottle of this awhile ago, and I so hope that they bring it back! This really is the perfect sweet, deep, sexy patchouli HG that you are looking for, for all of your layering needs and by itself. I also recently colored my hair and I have to say that BPAL HGs in general have been great for controlling flyaways, adding control, and giving a nice shine. And they seem to be color safe! All around win.

    Snake Smut

    This one was a no-brainer for me as it has SO MANY of my fave BPAL notes--Snake Oil, Smut, cardamom, aged patch, and leather are normally my instabuy notes, and of COURSE I had to have them all in the same bottle. Add me to the long list of people who are betting that this will age phenomenally, if I can keep out of my backup bottles long enough because I want to bathe in this. I so, so, SO hope that this becomes part of Lupers rotation every year! Anyway, on to the review! In the bottle! A warm blast of spicy sweet patch; almost getting Silkybat vibes on this! Then, two seconds after the first sniff, a nice dark wave of leather creeps up in the back of my nose. OOOOOOH this is gonna be FUN! On, wet: Oh yeah, that's the stuff. Some of the booziness of Smut starts to come forward, and some of the leather note gets pushed to the front more on a wave of that glorious musky smuttiness. The cardamom packs little sparkles of itself on top of the wave also. Drydown: I have this gorgeous, slightly boozy sweet patchouli thing with an almost dusty brown leather undertone on it. The elements blend completely together on drydown, which is amazing. My only gripe is that I wish this lasted longer on me! It may be because I put it on fresh out of the shower--so almost no skin oil to absorb it; will keep re-applying later in the day. EDIT OK second application seems to be lasting longer, YAY! Edit to edit: OK, second application lasting MUCH longer, really nice!!

    Screeching Revenant Hair Gloss

    I had so expected this to be a heavy blue musk, and it's not--it is such a light, fresh scent on me, both in my hair and on my skin. On me, I get this amazing light floral blue musk shot through with bright streaks of eucalyptus and evergreen. Layers really well with my herby/citrus perfumes.

    Green Tea & Lemon Peel

    I love this, I just wish it lasted longer on me! In the bottle: Strong, sharp lemon zest. On, wet: The mellow bitterness of iced green tea starts to cut the sharpness of the lemon. Drydown: Develops very quickly into this gorgeous spa-like, very VERY clean-smelling scent. If they made dryer sheets or fabric softener that smelled like this I would totally wash my sheets every 72 hours. This would also make an amazing atmo!

    Asleep in the Deep

    Not what I expected at all, but I like it! In the bottle: Salty GINGERBREAD and popcorn. Really. On, wet: Salt stays and sweetness intensifies a bit. Gingerbread note stays but then gradually the plum and a sweet tarry note show up. Also getting a tiny teeny bit of a deep marine note, but not a high, men's cologne marine note. Drydown: Salty sweet resins with a hint of really dark plum with sweet dark resins and yes, still some popcorn!

    Sea of Grief

    Such a lovely and complex scent. In the bottle: Intensely herbal oil note; mostly the angelica and carrot seed. On, wet: Opens up into a dry, herbaceous, hot blend--almost like a very complex herbal tisane mix, dried. Surprisingly, not getting any of the citrus/vetiver/bergamot notes; it's all a whirling blend of hot herby dryness. Drydown: I'm left with a warm herby skin musk kind of thing, with a bit of a salty note on top of the warmth.

    Hammy Northern Mockingbird

    This one is a total morpher on me. In the bottle: Getting light, cut grass with almost a floral note. On, wet: A mix of dry and wet cut grasses and something almost hay-like. Drydown: This one stays very light on the skin on me, almost like a veil. It literally gets "dryer" as it dries, getting what is almost like wisps of distant incense or burning sage, with teeny pops from the cedar. Stays very close to the skin, low throw and medium wear.

    Rose Quartz Bedroom

    Note that this is also a great candidate for layering with other roses; layering with Elizabeth of Bohemia HG today and it is amazing.....
