    This is really lovely when it first goes on...strong notes of Apricot and Roses. No vetiver (and I love vetiver). As it dries down the plum shows up, and ultimately it fades to an airy plum note. I enjoyed it tons but wish the wet notes lasted longer, so it would be more of a scent locket one for me.

    Fire Hair Gloss

    Vibrant, glowing caramelized ginger, red pepper, wild tobacco, and cinnamon burning through a smoldering red musk.  I’ve worn this a few times now. It’s very spicy upon application; full of ginger and cinnamon tempered by the musk and tobacco. After a bit the cinnamon and ginger fade, leaving a gorgeous red musk behind. That’s mostly what’s left on my hair, and I love it. It’s a very elegant scent. It’s strong, so a light-handed application should suffice.

    Sugar Cookie Hair Gloss

    Whoever said Funfetti Cake is spot on. This is strong, rich, buttery cookies and funfetti. I hadn’t thought about the coconut but now that I see the other reviews I do concur that there’s a slightly coconutty note mixed in. It’s not strong, though, at least not to my nose. It’s mostly Funfetti cookie to me. Wear length on this one is long; I can still smell it in my hair even after showering.

    Candy Canes, Powdered Sugar, Snickerdoodles, and Vanilla Cream

    Mmmmm this is so good! It’s a blast of peppermint up front, and then very quickly settles into a baked goods scent. A faint whiff of mint wafts throughout wear, but it’s pleasant and mild. Mostly this is warm cookies. I’ve worn it a few times now and every time someone says “Man you smell good!”

    Sad Ted Behind the Wall

    Liked this so much more than I anticipated, since many Strawberry scents can turn too sweet for me. This is however a really pure strawberry scent, tempered nicely by whatever the "rain splash" is. It doesn't morph much and wears nicely; just a clean, crisp Strawberry on me.

    The Palace of Versailles

    The initial application is a minute or so of that almost barnyard-y oudh, but not strong like in some other blends. Then the jasmine blooms - literally - and it does indeed smell very classy and expensive. It wears well and I'm left with a beautiful deep jasmine for hours. Really interesting blend, and if you like jasmines this is a must to try.

    This is really nice. The coffee blast on application is strong, but it mellows almost immediately on me to a gorgeous honey note with some slight sweetness that I assume is the cookies. The coffee also remains throughout. Thumbs-up. Editing to add: I'm trying this again a few weeks after my initial review and I like it even more. The blend has mellowed and there's a note of pipe tobacco that I didn't pick up on the first time around. It's like if coffee liquer was a very high-end perfume being worn while in a tobacco shop. I love it and this will officially be a full bottle purchase.

    Heart-Shaped Beanie on the Metro

    I did not expect to love this as much as I do. It is gorgeous. The blend of orange blossom, rose, and sugar is just incredible. I love it. It's very rosy on application but then dries down with a definitely sugary orange blossom note. I couldn't stop sniffing my wrist. This will be a full size bottle buy for sure.

    The first Christmas market that we visited in Berlin was at Potsdamer Platz. We were completely wiped from the day of travel from Salzburg, but we were stubbornly determined to at least step into the market before collapsing into bed. The scent of brightly frosted lebkuchen, warm mutzenmandeln, and chocolate-drizzled, marzipan filled schneeballen.  I don’t know how to adequately describe how much I love this. It’s a blast of chocolate similar to Gelt, but with a warm cheesecake-y dough-y cupcake-y spice added in. It doesn’t morph much from application to dry down; a slightly pretzel-nutty note is the only thing that fades. It’s incredibly comforting and delicious. I typically don’t wear a scent two days in a row (just because I have so many to choose from and I love variety) but I’ve worn this 3 days in a row now since it arrived. It’s that good! This will be a backup bottle buy for sure.

    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!
