    Smells like a basement or cellar

    The Old Robber-Woman smells exactly like my grandfather's basement. (He was a mechanic so that basement smelled more like oil and grease and old metal, but the mustiness is there.)

    If your top 5 scents are... Then try these!

    It's been a while since I smelled it, but I don't think so. IIRC what was most prominent about it was the booziness and the bourbon vanilla, and the other notes in the blend kind of darkened and intensified it. Didn't get much if any smoke, at least on my skin. It's always kind of reminded me of Smut, not really in smell but in character. Oh, while I'm here. These are my top five, in no particular order: Dorian (A Victorian fougere with three pale musks and dark, sugared vanilla tea.) No. 93 Engine (Balm of Gilead, benzoin, frankincense, balsam of peru, beeswax, saffron, galbanum, calamus, hyssop, mastic, lemon balm, and white sage.) Aphrogenes (Orris root, iris, white honey, white sandalwood, coconut, and cherry blossom.) Hemlock Honey (exactly what it says on the tin) Fledgling Raptor Moon (clove, toasted sandalwood, aged patchouli, bourbon vanilla, carnation, massoia bark, hinoki wood, and West Indian Bay.)

    I think you'd enjoy Hellhound on my Trail if you managed to track down some. Also, Siren from the GC collection.

    Mushroom musk, oakmoss, and rooibos leaf. Smells like a musk version of the lab's drier earth note. If you like the way they do dirt - I know some people go crazy for it - you really should get this one.

    The Bird of Prey

    Feathery brown musk and hay absolute with orris and leather. In the bottle, it smells like Irish cream. Outside of it, the leather and musk and the creamy orris combine to make a smooth, sleek scent - like Infernal Lover, which was basically all red musk IIRC - with something feathery and dusty as a very subtle undertone, reminding me a little bit of my much-beloved Fledgling Raptor Moon. If someone told me this was just "leather and the Lab's red musk" I might have believed them, though. I love the scent as it is, but I think the feathery-brown part might come out better when aging. As it is it sort of comes and goes when worn. I've tried a few fragrances with the lab's leather note in them and it always seemed a bit plasticky or some such to me. Not so here, it's used very well and is wonderful to smell.
