    Black and Red Candy Canes

    This one was odd for me. Upon application and for about two hours after, it smelled exactly like a little rosin bag that you'd use when bowling. I don't mind that. But then after the 2-hour mark it morphed into some sort of minty acrid clove. That's the best description I can think of. It skewed almost a little "cat pee". Might be my skin chemistry, but this one's a miss for me (thankfully it was a decant).

    First Lash

    Mmmm. The first blast is like the woodsmoke in Midnight Bonfire. Then it settles into whiffs of clove and pine. There's something else I can't put my finger on but it might be the Frankincense. It's lovely.

    Gingerbread and More Ginger

    I got a decant of this and when I first popped it open I actually didn't like it. The ginger was so overpowering that it almost smelled rancid. I let it sit for a few days and last night it had mellowed, so I tried it. Dammit, I love it. It's the familiar Gingerbread note with the added baking spice effect of the Ginger. It smells like Ginger Snaps. It faded fairly quickly on me but while it was on, it was heavenly.

    Blueberry Sufganiyot

    I got a decant of this to try, because some fruity notes don't sit well with my body chemistry (they can go too sweet or plastic-y) but this is awesome. It's a burst of strong blueberry but has baked good note mixed in which must be the fried dough. Wear was long and strong and it mellowed into a really nice cloud of baked blueberries. Will definitely buy a bottle.

    Lycan Lace

    Loooooove. On application it's a blast of dusty rose, in some ways reminiscent of the recent Encampment of Shepherds. After the initial rose blast, it settles into a delicious vanilla lace rose. Teeny tiny bit of musk for me, but not much. It's mostly Sugared Rose Lace. I don't really detect the tobacco, but I can tell there's something spicy mixed in that keeps it from being cloying. I absolutely love it and am so glad I blind-bottled it.

    Gingerbread, Vetiver, and Black Currant

    I’m really surprised by how much I liked this! It’s one of the least Gingerbread-y of these, and the balance with the vetiver and black currant is wonderful. On me the black currant dominates, but the underlying combination of the Gingerbread and vetiver give it a darker note so it’s never too sweet. It smells like a high-end perfume you might buy in a department store. This was one I bought as a decant on a whim but may actually buy a full size!

    Berliner Dom Antics

    One of two blind bottles I bought from the Yuletide with Lilith release, and sure glad I did. This is heavenly. It is an incredible mix of Gingerbread, Patchouli, and what to my nose is the “Frostbitten” note from this year’s Yules. That’s pretty much all I get from it, but that’s great!! It’s delicious and comforting and not too strong or overpowering. I wore it both in my locket and on my wrists. The wrists have settled to a soft frozen patchouli spice after many hours. If you like any of those notes you definitely have to try this.

    Gingerbread, Coffee Bean and Smoked Vanilla

    I can't believe I didn't review this yet. It's one of my favorites of the 2018 Yules so far. I don't get a ton of coffee to be honest, but I do get a gorgeous warm vanilla layered over an orange-y Gingerbread. It's so delicious from start to finish.

    Gingerbread and Lavender Sugar

    This is lovely. Upon application it’s sugary lavender, but as it dries down the Gingerbread (which I concur is lemony) adds a spicy, smoky note to this so it isn’t too sweet. It’s also light, so it never overwhelms. I bought a decant but this will be a full bottle purchase for sure.

    Gingerbread Tobacco

    Love love love. It's Gingerbread + the French Tobacco SN, to my nose. And I love both those things, so this is win/win.

    Twelfth Lash

    Blackened patchouli, sweet vetiver, labdanum, and honey. I forgot what the notes of this were when I grabbed it to wear this morning, but I've been in love with it all day and now I see why. It's like a slightly sharper cousin to this year's Zoe and the Goat weenie. When first applied it's a blast of smoky patchouli with a hint of vetiver peeking out. As it dries down, the vetiver becomes a bit stronger and the honey appears, as does a scent that I assume is the labdanum. These mix with the patchouli and create a really complex and lovely scent. I love it both freshly applied and hours later. I'm probably gonna need a backup bottle.

    Svarta Fönix Bókaflóð

    I wore this in my (new to me!) Clocket, plus on my skin. It's a really lovely, warm, very close-to-the-skin scent. On my arms it lasted all day, but very faintly. In the locket it was stronger, but not much. The actual scent is like sitting in a sun-warmed library (a nice old one) while a sun-warmed kitty sits in your lap or nearby on a windowsill while you read a well-loved book. It's that evocative. To try and describe...there's a light charred fire smokiness and something almost like paper, plus a faint perfume that brings the cat fur to mind, and then a subtle spice that I assume is the chai. I actually love that it's such a gentle scent since some days I'm just not in the mood to rock out with a strong scent. This one is lovely and comforting.

    Pumpkin Spice Sanguinem Menstruum

    I love this. Like, a lot. I also have no idea how to properly describe it. It's definitely Pumpkin, and definitely musk, and then there's some notes of...honeysuckle? That's what I'm getting. And also a slight metallic note which must be the "blood musk". It all blends together beautifully. The spice aspect is light. Also, if you liked this season's Pumpkin Musk and Black Oudh (I love it), then you definitely need to track down a decant or bottle of this, because it almost feels like a companion scent.

    Zoe and the Goat

    I LOVE THIS SO MUCH. Definitely a backup bottle scent. When I first received it from the Lab, I was actually really unsure because it smelled like pure cigarette smoke to my nose. I let it sit for a week and upon re-sniff it had settled some and I could detect the patchouli. And then I tested it and OMG. It's incredible. It goes on with a sweet honey/tobacco/patchouli blast, and that combo is just heavenly on me. As it dries down, the honey and patchouli stay at the forefront in a really beautiful way. It also has solid lasting power. I just love it. It's one of those "I keep sniffing where I put it" scents because I love it so much. I will say this to help give an impression of the scent as well: it reminds me a little of a non-allergy-causing, non-headache-inducing, way-more-elegant-version of the original Mugler Angel perfume. (I loved that stuff back in the day, but as with all commercial perfumes, I eventually over sensitize to them and they trigger allergies. Which is why I love BPAL...they do not!) As a bonus, much later in the day as Zoe and the Goat had faded I put a little SN French Tobacco over it. SO GOOD.

    Happy and Dauntless and Sagacious

    On me this goes on as a very soft Raspberry note. I'm not getting a ton of goats' milk, and the whole scent's starting to fade after only a few hours. I'll probably let this age a bit to see if it changes at all. It's nice and gentle and totally inoffensive.
