    Ante Luciferum Genitus Beard Oil

    I am without a beard but the notes spoke to me. This is a clean, bright tobacco scent in my hair. The frankincense brightens, the ambrette seed and myrrh don't read soapy or powdery, the sandalwood is subtle, and the tobacco is well-behaved. Love it. ETA Tobacco leaf continues into the second day, much stronger than it was on day one, and the other notes fade. On day two, I used Aristotle rather than wash my hair. Initially, it smelled like sudsy, soapy tobacco leaf but it calmed down and blended as a freshly scrubbed, clean scent. (I haven't tested Aristotle alone yet.)

    Waltzing Matilda

    This is also all fig on me. A tart fig, which is a pleasant scent to me. It's one-dimensional but I like it and can see using it to layer.

    No One is Above the Law

    Very sweet and golden. The orange blossom honey is front and center, my skin is throwing it hard going on 6 hours now. Unfortunately, all the other notes are lost on me but the orange blossom honey is beautiful.

    Red Patchouli, Cherry Wood, & Tobacco Absolute

    Initially, the patchouli dominated. Then, the tobacco came out, but just a little not a lot. The cherry wood appeared after an hour or so. For me, this was a cherry wood and patchouli dance with tobacco being very shy about participating.

    Raspberry & Red Benzoin

    Tart raspberry on my skin. Good throw for about 2 hours and gone after 4 hours.

    Dead Leaves, Black Amber, and Woodmoss Hair Gloss

    I wish I could describe the actual ingredients and how well they interact, but I don't know what DL or oak moss smell like. This is a close, heavy, sweet-leaning, crunchy smell in my hair. (I spray on the underside of long dry hair so body heat may affect my perception of the scent feeling weighty.) There's a formality in this scent, a pokerfaced civil vibe. Like missanneshirley said, this blend has a distinct personality. Where I'd wear this: grocery store and gym. But seriously, five days out of seven I wear this.

    Anathema Device

    This perfume is bolder and foodier than I expected. My skin broadcasts sweetened blackcurrant and bourbon vanilla for the first hour. After that, sandalwood peeks through but stays very close while the sweetened blackcurrant and bourbon vanilla keep their throw.

    Twenty-Four Paragons of Filial Piety

    This is such an unusual perfume. It's my favorite Luper this year. I can't add to the descriptions of this blend except to say that one of the stages reminds me of a bowl of fresh Thai coconut soup. IMO this wandering herbal coconut is perfect for summer. Unfortunately, it vanishes from my skin once I'm outdoors. Fortunately, it lasts in my hair

    Honeyed Champaca Blossom and Basmati Rice

    My decant has rested for about a day. I know the oil needs more time to settle but I caved this morning and applied it. The initial scent is also basmati for me. For about two hours, my arm smelled like a fresh pot of lightly sweetened and buttered fluffy rice. After that, the honey came forward enough to complement the buttery rice. Champaca was ever so faint. Around the 3 hour mark, the rice was eaten; the honey and champaca beautifully melded into one. After 4 hours, there's the faintest trace of them. I love the lightly sweetened rice fragrance in this perfume and adore the finish. So this behaved exactly the opposite of what I expected. Honey goes wild on my skin. I enjoyed that rice was the star here and honey played a supporting role. I'm not a butter lover (not even in food), but as long as the butter doesn't grow as this ages, it isn't so strong or long-lasting as to keep me from wearing this. I think a couple months of aging will deepen the honey and soften the butter note a bit so I'm leaning toward bottling this one. ETA after 6 weeks, the honey seems to have remained steady and the butter has mellowed in my decant.

    Job 31:32

    I fell in love with this right away. It’s a rich nutty blend with an underlying earthiness on my skin. I’m having the experience of the absence of rose that some others have mentioned. (Perhaps I haven’t let mine rest long enough. I started using it right away.) I’m okay without the rose because the earthy note (patchouli maybe?) tempers the sweetness and nuttiness for me. If it appears later, I’m sure it’ll be lovely along with what I’m getting now.
