    Lighting the Lantern

    I'm not usually one for citrus-y scents, but I like this one more than I expected. The yuzu is bright and cheery, with an almost peach-like undertone beneath the tart citrus. The cedar grounds the fruit, although the combination does strike me as unusual for some reason. An interesting, pleasant scent overall.

    Sprouting Grass Moon

    Pleasant, softly sweet and slightly minty grass. Very subtle. I think I might be detecting a little almond or vanilla, but can't really tell. I like it enough to keep my decant.

    Eostre of the Dawn

    I usually have a hard time with jasmine, but I don't really notice it here, other than it must be giving extra oomph to the honeysuckle. And this is a *gorgeous* honeysuckle, heady with the jasmine, creamy with the milk. This has a lot of throw, so I have to apply sparingly, but overall it's one of the best honeysuckle scents I've tried. A bottle may be in my future if I use up my decant.

    The Best Mint Blends

    Green Tree Viper, Psionicist, and Green Lovebird are my current faves! I'm especially enjoying the vanilla with the mint in Green Lovebird.

    Green Lovebird

    This reminds me of mint chocolate chip ice cream; it's such a lovely ratio of vanilla and mint. I don't really pick out the pistachio, but I suspect it may be giving this scent its dense, creamy texture and keeping the mint from being sharp.

    Cozy scents

    Thanks for the recommendation; cardamom and wool sound like an amazing combination!

    Cozy scents

    I've been on a bit of a fuzzy/cozy/wool scent kick recently and thought I'd see if people have any recommendations in that vein. I love Rendezvous Behind the Rice Straws and also like Cozy Pumpkin Sweater and Cafe Au Lait and a Wool Blanket. I'm really interested in Two Sheep and Two Goats, as well. Are there any I'm overlooking?

    The Best Lies

    This is probably the sweetest, most sugary rose scent I've tried so far. The honey reminds me of the honey musk note in Lady Una at first, with the rose being faint. As it dries, the rose---which is soft instead of bold---peeks out and the sugar crystallizes over the honey. It's like rose and honey cotton candy. It's probably too sweet overall for my tastes, but I'm glad I got to sample my sister's bottle.

    Dana O'Shee

    I've heard this compared to Snow White, a favorite of mine, so knew I had to try it. At first, it's a blast of cherry ish almond, then it fades into a light milk and honey skin scent. There's a whiff of coldness that does remind me of Snow White, which is really interesting since I have no idea what note gives it that quality. Almost like mint?? It doesn't have much throw, but I like how ethereal it is. Anyway, it's super pretty and if I use my imp quickly, a bottle may be in order at some point.

    Diese Dumpfen Pfaffenchristen

    Who knew that red musk and pine would go so well together? I really like this combo! I get the metallic smell as it dries, but don't detect the leather much at this point. I'm hoping this will get stronger with age. Although I don't think I'd wear it enough to get a bottle, I will enjoy the decant when I need something dark and foresty.

    Verteilt Euch, Wackre Männer, Hier

    I love yarrow and knew I had to sample this one just based on that note alone. I agree that this smells like a forest floor! Mossy, with lush ferns and a soft carpet of dark evergreen needles. It's a cool, deep, sweetly green scent. My skin kind of eats it up, unfortunately, but since I just got it out of the mail, I'll have to see if the staying power improves with rest/age. I adore this.

    Es Lacht der Mai

    There's definitely something citrusy in this, blended with the amber and sweet, carrot-seed snow note (for those of you who like/dislike this snow note). It's much sweeter and less cold than I expected. I like it, but wish I smelled the amber more, to ground the scent with something more resinous.

    Venus Verticordia

    To me, the honey note in this is nearly identical to the honey musk in Lady Una (which I love). So, honey musk + dandelions and wildflowers. Gorgeous. This scent is less sweet and more green than Lady Una, but they are definitely sister scents. The dandelions fade as it dries, but I still get whiffs of them every now and then. The wildflowers are sweet and lightly floral. Mostly, though, my skin seems to like bringing out the honey musk type note.

    Voodoo Lily

    For some reason, this one smells like apples to me. Apple blossom, maybe?? I'm not getting lily, just a sort of floral fruitiness.

    A Vision of the Courtesan

    This is sweeter than I expected (I'm starting to think I amp tobacco a bit), but very elegant. After the initial blast of vanillic, sweet tobacco, the rice milk is the main feature. And like the rice milk in Rendezvous With Her Lover Behind the Rice Straws, the rice milk note here is creamy, lightly sweet, and vanilla-musky. These two scents have my favorite rice milk note I've tried so far, hands down. The tobacco leaf gives the scent an intriguing, non-foodie edge that I agree is similar to the tobacco flower note in Zorya P. I don't notice the frankincense so much, but I'd assume it's what keeps this scent from being too sweet. Maybe it also helps with the floating scent cloud I'm getting in terms of throw. Overall, this is lovely and I'm glad the glowing reviews got me to try it. Tobacco, rice milk, and even vanilla fans should definitely give this one a whirl.
