    Cardamom & Coconut

    Very sweet and sugary coconut, I get a hint of cardamom. Sadly, on me this wasn't anything special. Coconut is one of my favorite notes, but I have other coconut scents in my collection that are more unique than this.

    Ginger & Lemon Peel

    I get more noticeably more ginger than lemon. The scent overall is fresh smelling, but with the strong spice of ginger, and lemon to round it out. I'm more of a citrus lover, so I was a little disappointed with how it turned out on me.

    Razors in a Doll's House Hair Gloss

    Rose water and cognac, reminds me a lot of A Spirit Katie. Light, sweet, and rosy.

    Who is Nibbling at my House? Hair Gloss

    Just like a caramel apple, very sweet, with the sharp crisp of the apple to balance it out. I do get a little bit of the butterscotch as well. Very sweet overall and very foody.

    Screeching Revenant Hair Gloss

    Icy musk, giving a cool sense to the scent, little bit of pine. I don't get the eucalyptus, but after wearing it a while, I do get a hint of opoponax. Very cool, light, and understated on me.

    Cacao & Clove

    Almost all clove on me. Spicy but almost fresh smelling. Can't pick out the chocolate on its own, but it gives the scent a certain sweetness to it (without it being foody).

    Cutie Dragon

    Lemon cupcakes filled with honey. I was worried for a moment as I can only smell honey in the bottle, but on my skin, it's buttery lemon creme, with a noticeable helping of honey. Very sweet and cakie, lemon and honey scent.

    Dragon Sneeze

    Orange with a large side of ginger. While orange is the star of the scent, the ginger is obviously there. The ginger brings a pleasant bite to the scent and smells almost green in a way. I can't pick out the red musk and tea on their own, but they bring a certain depth to the orange. For citrus fans who like ginger for sure.

    Pink Peach, Grapefruit, Yuzu, & Pink Musk

    On me, it's almost equal parts citrus (grapefruit and yuzu) and peach. The peach rounds out the sharpness of the grapefruit. Very fruity and bright.

    Apocalyptic Dragonbarf

    Mint creme, light, sugary, and very minty. A very foodie mint scent. I'm smelling the barest hint of the lemongrass, but get none of the blueberry or tangerine. Overall, pretty and almost winter holiday like scent, but I wish it wasn't so dominated by mint.

    Psalm 146:9

    I get a lot of labdanum at first. It takes a while, but the vetiver does start to come out more and more. For me, starts off as a labdanum scent, ends as a vetiver scent. I don't get any cacao or vanilla, though I do suspect it helps to mellow out the scent.

    Lemongrass & Tonka

    I get pure lemongrass. It's that sweet-citrus scent I associate with lemongrass. Very strong and great throw. I do not get tonka at all. To me it's like I stuck my face in a jar of lemongrass tea. I love citrus so I do enjoy this one, just wish it was more complex.

    Strawberry and Rosebud

    This is pure strawberry on me. I cannot pick out the rosebud, but the scent has a certain roundness to it that I imagine comes from the rose. Unfortunately, strawberry has a tendency to smell fake and shampoo like for me and this is no exception. I was really hoping this would be more of a rose-strawberry partnership, but I imagine strawberry lovers will like it.

    Tiki King

    This is pretty much pure coconut on me. The coconut is more on the meaty side and has a woodsy musk to it (I'm guessing that's both the black musk and bark). I'm imagining a coconut that just fell off the tree.

    Sister Mary Loquacious

    A sweet, airy scent. I definitely get vanilla, not so much the incense part, and it's a very sweet, airy vanilla, without being light, if that makes sense. I get more bergamot than lemon, but it's definitely citrus. Overall, a sweet and well rounded blend of vanilla and bergamot.
