    Collapsing Mosquito Netting

    Dewy, wet, freshly cut morning glory petals & sophisticated lilac. I fall asleep with this one on. Just wanna sniff it nonstop. It's a delightful blend. Not too heavy of a floral, but just right balance.

    Myrrh, Black Amber, and Teakwood

    This was a miss. I'm so broken hearted because I was hoping for a sweet & heavy myrrh, with some kind of sweet wood, & radiant Amber. Instead this is warm, myrrh-faint, & toasty. Not really what I thought would be.

    Our Lady of Pain

    Right out the bottle & on the skin I get that lovely patchouli! & It's a smelly kind, in a good way. Some dank patch lol. Anyways I also smell the white lavender & opium tar. I'm hoping with age the black orchid will become more prominent.

    In His Hands All Thy Cruelties Thrive

    This is a warm scent to me. The clove stands out with the leather. Overall this is almost a spice like scent, but it has warmth to it.

    Monastery Garden in the Snow

    Smells like a classic laundry soap! I'm not mad about that! It's very fragrant, & has great throw. Fades to a dusty powdery scent. Overall impression is flowers peaking out of half melted snow.

    Hel v6

    Received as a freebie with a large order!! This is exciting. I smell fruits & florals. There's a static mint in it too.

    The Midnight Carnival

    Bought 2023. Very complex, but breathy/airy like copal would be. I'm thinking that's the Agarwood mixing with the neroli. The cacao note I was scared of, but you know what? It's smells great & is faint enough to add depth & plays nice with the other notes. That teak & myrrh is sweet too. This one is going to age nicely.

    Divinities Implacable, Doom-Laden

    Simple yet it has the same complexity & warmth of Hyakki Yagyō. Smells faintly like it, but unique. I'm in love. This is a 2nd favorite to Hyakki Yagyō!!

    Palo Santo and Patchouli

    This is wild! It smells sweet, & faintly herbal patchouli with that whiff of smoke. I smell like a dirty hippie & I've never been happier!!

    Red Oakmoss, Cedarwood, & Sweet Patchouli is available for sale right now. Very fragrant blend. Loving it!

    A Countenance Forboding Evil

    I first received this as an imp. It had a peppery patchouli smell. I bought a full bottle, & it doesn't have that peppery smell. It is a full on floral with some sweetness coming from the Ylang-Ylang, & Blood Orange. Much different than the imp, more full bodied, & I love it. When I smell this I instantly think about being at the lake here in summer surrounded by dogwood flowers. It's really amazing how this transports me to special times.

    So very good. & I'm very happy to find a perfume based on Tomie!! This is slightly musky from the combo of oils. They all complement each other so well. But first stand out smell is Vanilla & Sandalwood. Then it's followed by a breath of Almond Blossom, a cut of Jasmine, & warmed up by the Amber. Very femme & classy. I think someone said sophisticated, & I agree!! I hope to collect more scents from this collection in the future.

    High-Strung Daisies

    Such a lovely, & gentle smell. I mostly get daisies, but there's some warm carnation hiding in there. The sugar & peppercorn really complete the scent!

    Mama Gein

    Coming back to this 3 years since purchase. I don't come to this often because one day my skin had a reaction, but it was only that one day. When I wear this now I get up front babys breath, & it's lovely, light, & delicate. I've smelled the real thing & the flowers do not compare to this beauty. Next I get powder, not just baby's powder, but cosmetics pressed powder. I imagine someone using a puffball to put it on their face, some flowers on the table nearby. This scent leans a bit more femme, but I still wear it as a male on special occasions. Plus talking to friends about the story behind the scent too gets them thoroughly intrigued! Has low throw, short wear length, but nice to sniff on the wrist. I think this would make a wonderful fabric spray.
  15. Coming back to this now that the bottle has aged a year. It's a favorite gentleman's cologne scent I go for. I like to pair it with a light floral single note or a rich patchouli. But this scent alone is remarkable. I like to think it adds an air of class, sophistication & mystery to me when I wear it. It's rich, warm, deep, slightly resinous, yet comforting & makes you wanna get close or be pulled close to someone wearing it. Goodness I wanna spray this all over my pillows & sheets! The blue tansy has really went into hiding. It's a note I wanted to experience more of. The person above me mentioned the scent took on a bubblegum scent, & that I can attribute to the olibanum/frankincense. I had a limited edition of a bottle from BPAL & Century Guild that had frankincense as the main note & it gave me herbal bubblegum scent.
