    The Best Mint Blends

    Ooh I was worried about the pistachio (though I love to eat them!!) in green lovebird but the reviews sound lovely, thank you!

    The Best Mint Blends

    Necro-bump! What are everyone's favourite mint scents right now? I was wearing 404 gateway timeout earlier and kept waving my wrist in a circle and sniffing, mmm. I get sweet mint with some sort of fainter maybe fruity/juicy/herbal notes. It doesn't last long at all though.

    Scent Recs based on your PERSONALITY!

    Lucchesa! I just realized I never replied. Thank you for the scent recommendations. My list keeps growing, and you nailed so many that I already love! Alice, I can't wear on my skin but it's wonderful in my white rabbit scent locket. I have imps of Bengal and bastet and bastet deserves a bottle upgrade for sure. Dragon's milk is very comforting to me, and Jack was my first ever bottle purchase immediately after trying the imp from my first order! The lion has been another I've wanted for a long time, but keeps being passed over for LEs (darn FOMO!). Amber seems to work well with my skin chemistry so I think it's one I'd go straight to getting a bottle (possibly sin too mmm!). Yeah, it's a shame because Miskatonic U sounds likes it's amazing on others, and I love the idea of it. I should dig out my imp and try it in my scent locket actually... or even now that it has aged maybe a small skin test (bastet needed a bit of time).

    Scent Recs based on your PERSONALITY!

    Ooh thank you for the recommendations @Teamama! I feel like you really hit the nail on the head, these are so up my ally. I actually have a couple of the RPG imps including dwarven ale (cleric, bard, rogue), but the ones you listed sound amazing. I haven’t tried layering and druid + good + chaotic, just brilliant. I’ll have to pick up imps! And the Small Brown Cat has been on my radar, but keeps being passed over for LEs. It’s moved top of the list for my next order!

    Scent Recs based on your PERSONALITY!

    Hey there! I'd like to give this a go I'm a 26 year old cis female, and a winter solstice baby. Fall and winter are my favourites, with hot tea, cozy sweaters and blankets. I love animals, both in person and watching documentaries. Frenchies are my favourite dog because of their cute hilariously large ears. I love comedies, and laughing in general. I'm an introvert, I hate large crowds, and social situations tend to drain me. I'm terrible at small talk. But with a small close group of friends who I mesh with greatly, I'm super bubbly and chatty. I get really fixated on things. Right now it's fountain pens, and specifically all the pretty ink colours I can use to write in my journal. I'm a hufflepuff, and a fan-girl/geek. As for appearance, I'm 5'2", chubby, blonde with blue eyes, and I tend to dress in jeans and t-shirts. I wish I was more fashionable, but being comfortable is more important to me. I have 6 tattoos, including a large thigh piece. Pokemon, Harry Potter, animals, Egyptian theme, etc. I have like 15-ish piercings, including a septum clicker that looks like a little tiara with Swarovski crystals in it. I used to dye my hair with manic panic (red, pink, purple) but haven't for about 3+ years because effort. Despite all that I tend to look pretty innocent. I go between liking softer more feminine things, and being a tom-boy. I really like jewel tones, as well as teals, and purple leaning burgundies. Curious to see what people think of for scent recs! Thanks in advance.

    Autumn

    This is the soft scent of an autumn walk in the daytime. I did have to really slather it to smell it, but it's quite nice. It's not floral enough that I wouldn't like it, and I think it's well blended so it's hard to pick out any note. Osthmanthus may be the strongest note, but since I'm not familiar with it, I wouldn't know.

    Recs for my next order- sweet and spiced?

    Bastet - amber, Egyptian musk, saffron, myrrh, almond, cardamom, golden lotus Luke 10:25-37 - golden amber, saffron, white sandalwood, clove (LOVE. It's my favourite from this list (& maybe all my scents). The golden amber & white sandalwood create this lovely warm sweet base for the spice of mostly saffron on me & clove. I don't know if I just lucked out with skin chemistry but it's stunning on me). Jack - warm jack’o’lanterns, nutmeg, glowing peach, murky clove Spiced Rum Buttercream Coffee - coffee, rum, allspice, nutmeg, clove, star anise, cardamom, cinnamon, buttercream (after about a week this scent settled into this beautiful blend where it's hard to pick out any one note but its smooth creamy slightly spicy sweetness. Mmm. I don't drink coffee but I'm very happy smelling it. Dragon's Milk - dragon’s blood resin, honeyed vanilla. Dragon's Milk was my introduction to dragons blood resin, & on me it's the unique spicy scent that really is indescribable. With the honeyed vanilla it's this amazing sweet spicy blend on me.

    What BPAL would this fictional character wear?

    Ooh that's so interesting. I wouldn't have thought to go in that direction, but it makes sense, especially thinking of her flying through night air. I can't do blends with florals as the main components though (just put the tiniest bit of snow white on & it's all headache inducing night blooming flowers on me). My Halloween: Montreal might be perfect. Candy, leaves, cold earth, smashed pumpkins - sharp & clear in the frosty air. I'm still open to thoughts & suggestions though!

    Does anyone have recommendations for what Mavis, the cute cartoon vampire from Hotel Transylvania movies, would wear? I'm going to be her for Halloween <3

    Roof Goblins

    This is like smooth, sweet, organic apple juice served from a glass container. It smells this way both in a scent locket & my skin. I agree that the milk keeps it from having sharp edges, instead this is a very smooth scent. On my skin, this doesn't last very long. Maybe half an hour & then it's very faint. I look forward to wearing this on crisp fall days, planting unconscious wants to visit apple orchards in all who pass.

    The Misty Marshmallow Sugarbunnies of Niflhel

    When I first tried this on, it was like !!SUGAR!! and I got references to sugary cereal. Now that the bottle has rested for a bit, on my skin it's sweet pink sugar that covers peeps, but not as strong, with hints of marshmallow. In my scent locket, I get way more marshmallow. Sweet, pink, maybe slightly fruity, with sprinkles of sugar, marshmallow. Such a happy scent!

    Suffragium

    When Lilith was three months old, she came with me to the voting booth for the first time. She wore a Little Democrat onesie and a Babies For Obama button, and it was one of the most emotional nights of my life. I know Ive told this story before, but as the election results rolled in, I wept with relief because Lilith was going to grow up safe. Decency won the day, and my heart was alight with the belief that we were on an upwards trajectory as a nation, and that compassion and hope were leading us to a renewal. November 8, 2016 was another emotional night for very, very different reasons. Since that day, the world has gotten darker, but the darkness creates strength and fosters empathy. Lilith is now learning what social justice truly means. She has participated in protests, demonstrations, volunteer campaigns, and walk-outs. She has made protest signs with her own two hands, and has marched against the cruelty, oppression, and tyranny of this current administration. Shes beginning to grasp both civic responsibility and civil disobedience, and shes learning how much power her voice really has. 

This is a scent of renewing hope, determination, fortitude, and compassion: palo santo, white sandalwood, sweet labdanum, and cedar. On me, Suffragium is this lovely spicy (the palo santo?), slightly sweetly resinous, woody incense. There isn't a lot of change between wet and dry down on me. Very airy if that makes sense. It has quite good throw, and lasts well on me. Later, as it fades, the scent lightens but maintains the same scent, becoming more skin like.

    Hooligan Witches

    On my skin, this immediately goes to plastic. This may be due to time of month, or maybe it will age out of it. For now I'll stick to putting it in my scent locket! In my scent locket: the most gorgeous, buttery, flakey pastry pumpkin scent. Delicious. I wish I could eat it, but I'll settle for wearing it around my neck <3

    Mad Kate

    I’m not very familiar with the majority of these notes, so I’m not sure how helpful my review will be. I don’t smell thyme, red currant, or vanilla (which are the notes I bought this scent for). On my wrists I get a sweeter honeyed floral. On my inner elbows, it’s more of a waxy floral. The vanilla may be hiding under the sweetness of the honey. Florals in general are an uncertainty, that I tend to prefer as a minor component if at all, so this is a nice surprise. Overall, lovely.

    The Mountebank

    I applied the Mountebank to my inner elbows, throat hollow, & scent locker this morning around 6:30. I could still smell it on my inner elbows late morning, but I'm not sure when it faded after that, but it was at least 5 hours. The scent is similar in my skin as it it to the locket, with maybe a smidge less lavender. Lavender is the dominant note, partially because it's the one my brain most easily recognizes. I think that the thieves rosin matches, and I get a defined leather with a hint of balsam. I don't detect the sandalwood, but maybe it's part of why this scent is so smooth. As someone with a preference for fall/winter leaning scents, I'm so happy that this one stands up beautifully during this awful muggy summer weather. I can see myself wearing this a lot in spring and summer especially.
