    Velvet

    Wet on this is a rich deep chocolate, but the longer it's on the drier and sweeter it gets. On wear this is a sweet chocolate with a swirl of vanilla, schmeared over a woody almost sacred feeling layer. It's sweet and comforting, but not overpoweringly foodie, it's calming, like a bit of a hug in a scent, or how churches must smell to the people of candyland. This was a lab frimp, and I never would have tried it on my own, but if you get a chance give it a shot, it's suprisingly nice!

    Dead Leaves and Cement Atmosphere Spray

    Clean and a little gritty, the slightly peppery scent of dead leaves with a cool breeze, like a cologne of the personification of a city sidewalk in fall. It's clean and classy, and a little sharp. It's a good decant, and I think my curtains (blessed curtains at home) enjoy it, but I don't feel a need to track down a big bottle.

    High-Strung Daisies

    This is absolutely the lab's sugar note, the same one from Gobo, Lavender Gingerbread, Beware Pickpockets!, and likely many more. The blend starts on me with a blast of Daisy and Pink Peppercorn, that tones down into a sugared daisy, with a hint of the peppercorn I love. There might be carnation in here too, but I'm unfamilliar with the smell. A few hours later it's sweet and vaguely floral, with the faint remnants of the pink pepper wafting through. It's as if someone has made daisy infused sugar syrup, it's not so overly floral that it knocks me or my sinus's out. Absolute Keeper! Woot Woot!

    Finding a BPAL fragrance for myself

    Honestly, I've just had a lot of fun trying decants, and finding out what I like from sellers on the forum. I'm hardly the guy to be concerned with gendering what scent I'm wearing, but it really comes down to personal preference even in the more masc area of things. Do you have any idea of what scents you like to wear, or scents you like to smell? I started from there, and have been slowly branching out and exploring. There are a lot of standard favorites that people more qualified than me can tell you about, but personally I'd recommend just... browsing the general catalogue and seeing what tickles your fancy and trying to track down some of that here! Best of luck!

    Tamora

    This started out lovely, vanilla and peach, I sniffed my wrists fondly, "Please, more I beseech" But now it's been hours, and what's this, oh no! This creamy peach scent is all naught but play-dough. Poem aside, amber might do this to me, this is very much like O... vanilla and amber = play-dough, but this one is admittedly lightly peach play-dough. Such a shame the beginning was AMAZING.
  6. [No additional description provided.] Oh boy, I'm the first to review something? For once? Whelp, here we go. Right away this is an incredibly floral honey to me fresh sprayed, and feels powdery with perhaps a touch of beeswax? I'm not the best with discerning honey varieties, but powdery and floral are the best notes for this. It's nice enough in my dorm, but I think this would really shine in a house with a lot of wood and sunshine, it smells of the transition from spring to summer in all the best ways. That being said I'm getting only a touch of clove and really no cinnamon from my decant, but if you're looking for a nice powdery floral honey this may be for ya!

    Erotic Vegetables Hair Gloss

    I wasn't sure about this one, and the lovely doomsdaydisco told me to test it on a paper towel first. I'm so glad she did it saved my life. The first 5 notes are great on me. Amazing. Lovely. Right now the towel has sat for a bit, and is a sickening mixture of smoked clove, the plasticky whiff of leather (AKA the leather scent that makes me feel absolutely ill, not the good leather) and a roll of acrid labdanum. This is probably amazing on someone. But I came into this begging for a mossy tomato clovey woody scent. And what I got was sweetened chemicals and sadness. I'm not a fan, but I do hope that I can pass this off to a loving home who dosen't have such a visceral reaction to this type of leather.

    Sinoatrial Node

    This is an... interesting one on me! It starts out with a fizzy sweet lemon, very lemon drop, sweet tart like on me, with a heavy dose of apple. As someone who'se been a big fan of apple scents this year (who would have thought) I can say that this is a bright sweet apple, very similar if not the same one as in Lamb's Wool, which makes it very much a win on me. It's bright and fizzy and sweet, and overall a good time fresh on! About half an hour-hour in the champagne comes out, I think I'm amping it slightly as I tend to do with a lot of liquor notes. It's still bright, but a bit more boozy, and less of a cuddly apple. I never got any ginger. Now, about 8 hours in it's mostly faded down to a perfumed apple with a hint of lemony alcohol, and is very close to my wrists. Another one that's a great pick-me-up but tends to fade a bit in terms of enjoyable staying power. Still, if this sounds good to you, or if you're a fan of apple scents this is absolutely worth a shot!

    Fizzy Jack O' Lantern

    Oh this is odd on me! In the bottle it's sweet, a little pumpkin, a lotta liquor, a buttery sweet cocktail. However once it goes on me I seem to be getting the... labs dead leaves note? It gets a weird amount of pepper on me, than the alcohol starts to burn off, and I think I'm getting the gin in HEAVY amounts. Overall it goes from fizzy ginger wonder to weirdly pepperish alcoholic cologne? I don't know y'all my skin chemestry is doing something weird to this.

    Dead Leaves and Vanilla Incense

    Aging has done this one well, and while dead leaves still goes all green pepper on me, 6 months on I get more vanilla in the dry-down. It's a little smoky, and very faint, I have to press my nose deep in my wrist to get it, but it's there. It's an odd smoky vanilla meets green pepper, and as I have a friend who loves the dead leaves note, I don't think I'll be keeping this one around.

    Theodosius, The Legerdemain

    On me at least this was a watered down dorian, or on me at the time, a weaker version of Paper Phoenix. Lovely, but in comparison to the other two, just not the same throw or potential. Off to the swapping pile it went, but hey, I figured slapping a review could remind my later self not to try this again.

    I'm a big fan of mad hatter, but tombstone is also.... nice as hell.

    Smells like a basement or cellar

    The Chilling Cellar. Obvious in name, but it really is an old crumbling basement with vinegars and dryness. Might not be exactly what you're looking for, but I've seen some decants of it around the forums and it seems like worth checking out if you're on a basement tour

    Pumpkin Crème Brulee

    On me this is sweetened creamy pumpkin spice, but heavy on the creamy buttered pumpkin, and light on the spice. Not bad, but I have accidentally ended up with a lot of pumpkin scents, and this one really lacks that little something else that sets it apart from the rest of them. The caramelized sugar intermingles with this nicely, and this is a rather nice pumpkin, and very pie like.

    Travel Buddies

    Refreshing, it smells like a cool fancy lemonade, much like DoomsdayDisco stated. I get a touch of lemony frankincense in here, but its a lot of a cooling lemony eucalyptus blend that dries down to a lemony minty frankincense. It tragically dosen't last very long on me, nor can I detect the rosemary I was so searching for, but it's a lovely pick-me-up and it would absolutely be great for right after a long journey, or a road trip on a summer day. I won't need a bottle of this, but it is quite enjoyable, and if it lasted a little longer would be on the list of possibilities. Travelogue Win again! Edit: Aging has made this NICE but it does not extend the wear time. A good sleep scent for me I think
