    I have the 2013 version from the Etsy store. Loving the red musk & leather. I get a hint of the woods. As for the rags, I could swear I smell a fabric note, but maybe not. LoL Feels like a Winter & Spring scent.

    Like the Very Gods

    This one is a shifter. Smells different every time I sniff it. In the bottle there is that lovely incense note, white sandalwood, mixing so well with the orris butter. I also smell the honeyed olive blossoms. The vanilla cedar is so gentle, it's almost ghostly. Not picking up much musk at first, but as it fades it starts to come out. Overall, the smell is gentle, but maybe my nose has been sniffing too long. Haha

    Könnt Ihr So Verwegen Handeln

    Received this as a decant. Smells beautiful. Something grassy/herbal going on with it that I enjoy. Slight soap, powder, but I get the orange blossoms mostly. I wish I could get that labdanum smell more. Anywho, it's a winner!

    Lacus Solitudinis

    It smells faintly like "An Excerpt from Speculum Heroicum Principis Omnium Temporum Poëtarum Homeri". Has to be the cedar & oud recreating that scent. Has a powdery, woodsy finish. Something strong & masculine stands out, can't place the note. Oh wow, I get a little man musk from this. Ooh la la

    Wow, smells so darn good! I smell every note it seems. Woody musk, masculine, spiced just right, a little powdery. Great throw too! A must have for the BPAL collector.

    Flowering Peonies

    This really is an explosion of peonies. I want to like it, but it's too floral for me. It's not bad, it's simply too strong for me. Smells like one of those plug-in air fresheners. Kind of tropical to me, so if you like that it will be perfect for you. Planning to swap this one.

    The Sun Rising

    Too much going on with this one for me. I wore it & it smelled like plastic, with orange blossom & mandarin. I know that the saffron & bergamot are the contributors to this one not getting along with my nose or body chemistry. Guess this one is not for me.

    Discarded Sandal

    Interesting scent. I can smell the black pine, hinoki wood, & juniper all creating this kind of damp forest layer. Fading out, the beeswax, tolu balsam & muguet blend, come up front. I like wearing this one because I can identify/smell every note this contains.

    Butterfly Dancer

    This one is divine! Smells exactly like this LE body wash I used to buy a lot of. Flowery, warm, blushed. That rose sandalwood is something I've never encountered before, but I can tell that is a major note singing in this wonderful scent. The red oud & sweet vetiver is heavenly too!

    Vaginal Tales of the Nocturnal Palace

    I knew there had to be something creamy in it. I tend to forget the notes after ordering. Anyways, this is such a beautiful scent. It's grounded, somewhat flowery, & the mallow + vanilla cream is so complementary to the blue lotus & lotus root. My wife loves it, & i plan to let her have it.

    In Night When Colors All to Black Are Cast

    Oh goodness, this one is amazing. I crave the smell. I could swear patchouli was in it, but I don't see it listed. Perhaps it is the vegetal musk giving that lovely, earthy smell. & it mixes so well with the myrrh & opoponax. This scent is rich, warm, comforting, masculine, & has an incense smell to it.

    Death and Life Completed

    In the bottle I smell the florals, & a mellow green to it. Applied, the florals really open up. I first smell hydrangea, followed by African daisy, then the peony. Stays floral on me, with a note of sandalwood floating around.

    Gingerbread Villain

    At first in the bottle it makes me recoil. Too strong, BUT when I applied a drop to my son's wrist we ended up loving the scent! Truly gingerbread, not getting any other notes. However, my nose isn't as trained as others to detect subtle notes. lol It is exciting tho to read the description. I'm surprised to see lilac, lime, & citrus musk notes. Will start wearing this around next winter.

    Pale Student of Unhallowed Arts

    A sweet smelling floral cologne. Almost smells like a nice masala incense stick. Also smells clean as it fades.
