    Scent Boom

    A clamorous cacophony of obstreperous, rowdy smells: blood orange, lemon peel, sugar syrup, tangerine, pink peppercorn, tuberose, mango, melon, white tea, and gunpowder detonated by napalm accord and a bombastic, fiery scarlet musk. On me, it's a mix of fruits that leans more citrus (orange citrus, I don't smell lemon on me). I can smell the tuberose and the white tea in the background, giving the scent a more floral edge to it. I do not get any of the bomb part of the scent, just orange, mix of other fruits, and some mild florals.

    Squirting Shoggoth

    Camming live from a basement somewhere in Arkham: pear juice, bloops of yuzu fruit, silty oakmoss, and glowing green musk. Yuzu and pear dominate this scent for me. The yuzu especially, but as it wears on me, the pear comes out more and more. I get whiffs of the oakmoss in the back, but it's almost floral with the pear in this scent. Overall, a very fresh and bright pear and yuzu blend.

    Zombi Sassafras

    The sassiest shambling corpse in town. Grave dirt, sassafras root, sarsaparilla, clove, effervescent white ginger, and oakmoss. Smells a bit like undead rootbeer. Fresh turned dirt and root beer! Dirt starts off as the strongest note and I only get root beer once it wears for a bit. On me it ends up being an equal mix of both. It makes for this very unique scent that I would either describe as sweet, carbonated, turned earth or very rooty root beer.

    Sip of Glass

    Silvery champagne with ambergris and something murky. I get champagne the most after I first apply. As it dries and wears the ambergris starts to come out more until it rivals the champagne notes. I cannot pick out the other notes, but I can tell something else is lurking in the scent and it adds to the ambergris, giving it almost a murky edge.

    Rapture Pig

    Smells exactly like Rose Jam from Lush. Similarly it reminds me a lot of Hope, Un, and Pink Fuzzy Handcuffs. I smelled more red currant in the bottle, but that did not translate to my skin. Just classic sweet, jammy rose.

    Red Roses and Old Bones Atmosphere Spray

    Oh no, I don't get any rose. It's a very tar/labdanum scent and that's all I get. It vaguely reminds me of The Sick Rose. Sadly, not my cup of tea at all.

    Humorous Copulation

    Lemon and lotus on me. The tea and cream mellow out the lemon and the lotus root gives it a strong floral leaning. As the scent wears, the lotus becomes stronger until it almost begins to dominate the scent.

    Basket of Abalone

    Grapefruit and ambergris. The grapefruit is the strongest of the two, on me, upon first application. A while after it dries, the ambergris becomes more prominent, until it and the grapefruit are pretty equally matched. A briny grapefruit scent, I cautiously think I enjoy this one.

    Twenty-Four Paragons of Filial Piety

    Pine and coconut. At first, all I get is wood, with the fir balsam dominating. As it wears, the coconut comes out more and more. After a while, on me it's a combo of pine and coconut, with the fir balsam being just slightly the stronger of the two. Beautiful scent, the fir balsam plays really well into the more woodsy side of coconut. This is a surprise favorite for me.

    Unicorn Junk

    Sweet, buttery coconut, just short of being foody on me. I cannot pick out the other listed notes on me, they blend together to create a slightly floral and woody base for the mallow and coconut. My absolute favorite of the Junks (tehe) and one of my favorites for this year's Lupers. Very random, but as it wears, it reminds me more and more of Green Coconut from Lush (which I am excited about, as that bath bomb has been discontinued).

    Left Atrium

    Grapefruit with mimosa. The two combine to make an almost orange scent, with a floral depth to it. As it wears on me, the floral component becomes stronger and I think I almost smell the cedar (very airy and light in this blend). But throughout, this blend remains a citrus scent. As a citrus lover, I am very pleased with this one. And the noticeable floral lean of this scent separates it from other more fruity or sugary citrus scents in my collection. One of my favorite Lupers this year.

    Fancy-Free Hair Gloss

    Somewhere between lemonade and lemon candy for me. It's not quite as sweet as a lemon hard candy, but it's definitely a pretty sugary lemon. I'm not getting any ambrette seed, I think the lemon is too overpowering. So, while it's a pretty and not overwhelming lemon scent, it's not very unique or complex scent.
  13. [No additional description provided.] Honey and frankincense, with the barest hint of bergamot. Strong honey scent, with the frankincense adding a sweet, smoky depth to the scent. I cannot pick out the bergamot, but I think it's adding to the overall sweetness of the scent. As this is the only scent I got from The Honey Pot collection, I do not know how this stacks against the others, but this is very much a honey scent.

    Left Ventricle

    A red musk scent for sure. At first, I was sure this had benzoin in it, but I think that's a mix of the bergamot and eucalyptus and orange blossoms. Bottom line, I would describe this as red musk, deepened by flowers, with just enough mint to be noticeable.

    Voluminous Red Blanket

    I didn't get cherry so much as red, fruity musk. The labdanum and agarwood start in the background and get stronger as the scent wears. I get a slight floral note, that leans more rose, but I can never pick it out in the scent. Overall, a more sophisticated red fruit musk scent.
