    I Hear You Call, Pine Tree

    Oh man, this pine is one of the cat pee pine notes. Wet, this was super bitter and pungent, with a hint of ammonia. The lotus is earthy and rooty and not sweet at all. I was taken aback by how bitter this was, like a very concentrated cocktail bitters. Dry: After about an hour, the angry piss pine really calms down into a more gentle pine note and the scent sweetens up a little, and slowly it starts to smell of Cthulhu/ Irish spring. The dry down version is not bad, but yeesh that wet stage.

    I love olive blossom scent when it's a bit more like the fruit and high quality creamy olive oil and have for some time been looking for an olive oil and ambergris perfume blend. This has that. Unfortunately, something in this produces a strong lemony note (the majoram?) and causes the whole thing to smell like very **expensive** vegan lemon pledge on me, which is very disappointing. As it dries down, the lemon note burns off and the olive oil ambergris mix is quite lovely.

    The Mystery of Giant Testicles on a Brothel Visitor

    In the same family as Mexican long-tounged bat and sweet potato musk, but less agressive than the other two. Roasted nuts (I was hoping for peanuts, but it is more of a cashew) with the honey from beeswax mimics caramel, and something slightly creamy. Just a hint of tea leaf and sandalwood in the background. No bamboo the be found. Not my thing, but if you like BPALs caramel or toasted nut/rice scents, you should try this.

    Wet Fingers

    Wet: Smarties candies dissolved in a half cup of "spring fresh" laundry detergent. Dry: still kind of detergenty, but I can smell the thyme the mint and a pine scent (not overly lemony). The sandalwood is starting to peek through making the scent smell dry. On the right person I bet this would be a very nice scrub pine, arid, semi desert scent. This seems like it will give me a headache in any great amount.

    Pegasus Junk

    Okay, so this is really strange. In the bottle: a not unpleasant dry scent with toasted rice and orris. Wet: mostly orris (powder) and white tea, with a hint of something.that isn't skin musk pretending to be skin musk. It actually smells sort of like the warm skin of an animal (salt). Dry: after about an hour I get a strong salty, toasted and wet rice smell (probably what the others are describing as popcorn) and the sandalwood gets stronger, the orris fades to the background, the tea is gone, and a powdery amber comes out. I don't get any lemon at all (I'm okay with that as we have a history of hating each other), or any florals, and it smells very warm and dry. Not at all creamy. I look forward to trying any non sweet, non floral bpals, but quite often they wind up being dry sandalwood blends that leave me feeling really thirsty.

    Ancient Junk

    This morphed a lot on me. In the bottle: sweet, beeswax, dry wood. Wet: SWEET BABY POWDER, LORD HELP ME. Dry: after about a half hour the powder dissipates and I'm left with a dusty (think mummies of Mexico City dusty), warm, slightly incensey, dry, spicy wood scent somebody rubbed some beeswax on. One of the woods is similar to sandalwood. The myrrh starts to peek out again over time. It reminds me of a hot, dry day at the beach when you've had enough and come in covered in sand and smelling like the sun and driftwood you were sitting on. Medium throw.

    Snow Moon 2019

    So I was hoping to something similar to snow, glass apples. Wet: AGGRESSIVELY grapefruit (yuzu). Dry: I have a mostly hate relationship with citrus (doesn't work on my skin chemistry, but every once in a while it's fine), and the yuzu amplifies and and dominates the scent for the first hour. After that, it backs off and I get a very close to the skin apple with a hint of soft floral (slightly powdery), with the musk and white tea hanging out in the background. I do like whatever the snow note is in this one. It's subtle, just slightly cold. I don't mind it, but I'm a snow/ice scent hoarder an this one isn't as OMG as some of the others in my collection. I DO think it has a decent amount of white tea, if you are into white tea. Is it close to snow, glass apples? Ehhhhh, once it dries down when the apple comes out it's distantly reminiscent. Snow, glass apples is simple ice with the stark, sharpest, freshest green juicy tart apple and white musk. 2019 snow moon is softer, sweeter, more of a complicated blend and more "feminine".

    The Mummies of Mexico City

    This was my first experience with a full bottle of a new resin perfume, and also a lace scent. Within the first week of receiving it it was sharp frankencense and dust. I couldn't fully inhail the smell because the strong dust note tickled my nose too much. I was disappointed that the bottle was very different from the imp which was much more of a smooth copal scent. Fast forward a few months later and my 5ml bottle has settled and now closely resembles my original imp. Wet I get more frankencense, but once it dries down it's a lovely smooth copal scent with a blurred edge of frankencense and a little bit of a dry linen (lace), dry wood and dust. I don't really get anything metallic, but that's okay. There may also be just a touch of cocoa? I quite like it, but if the frankencense mellowed out more over time I wouldn't be mad about it.

    Galerie des Glaces

    I can tell that I like it and that there's amber and something sweet and very "perfume-y", then my allergies kick in and my nose stuffs up and I can't pick out specific notes. I don't have problems with amber or ozone, musk or fruit, so it must be whatever the glass note is that my sinuses don't agree with? What a shame.

    Elle Est Heureuse

    It was pouring rain and bitterly cold, but this smile kept me warm. Wrought iron lattice and sparkling amber lights.  It ALMOST does smell like rod iron, says the kid that used to smell and (maybe lick) rod iron. As it dries down, I get Pine! A citrus! An Amber!

    If Le Croix made a cream soda flavor it would smell like this and taste like this but thinned out with your own sweat and cheap sunscreen. (it doesn't work with my skin chemistry)

    I need to talk about how this smells in the bottle, because it's SO WEIRD: like the indoor elephant exhibit at the zoo (wet hay, a little bit of bleach, and elephant butt), and a dollop of sour cream. On me, it smells like powdery floral. Violet has a specific powdery smell I like, but I don't like the rest of the powdery florals. In this case, it smells like the (orris?) powder note is overwhelming the violet, which is too bad. Maybe a little sandalwood in the background. Lol, blech?

    Absinthe-Laced Candied Apple Hair Gloss

    Right out of the bottle this smells like synthetic lemon and some kind of sickeningly sweet bargan bin Walmart body spray, the kind that is on clearance because it is NASTY. I can't smell the caramel or the the apple. Serious barf. A couple of hours later my hair now smells of the faintest of ghosts of apples and a hint of sugared absinthe, which is actually nice. ... But that intial first stage is vile. Too bad.

    The Stranger

    This is almost a clove single note on me. The other notes are ghosts in the background. It was almost totally gone by hour two. Dissapointing.
