    Hay Moon 2020

    This is lovely. It opens with an almost lemony scent that reminds me of the Lab's sugar note, then settles into honeyed amber, soft cardamom, and a hint of sweet hay/oats. The amber reminds me a bit of Inez and O. It becomes a skin scent on me pretty quickly, and so doesn't have a lot of throw, but that's part of its charm IMO. As other reviewers have noted, it definitely captures a sense of the transition from summer to fall.

    Skin Musk, Cream, & Honey Dust

    This is very sweet on my skin, but quite pretty. It has much better throw than I expected, and fairly good longevity. I usually prefer more musky honey notes, but this is really nice for a sweeter honey. It's almost white honey like with regard to sweetness. Overall, this makes me think of toffee or cream soda, but made with honey.

    Sleepytime BPAL

    Thanks for the tag, @biggnerd! Yeah, I'd say that skin chemistry is definitely a factor. To me, Halfling is nuttier, milkier, and sweeter. It has more presence on my skin. I find Dana O'Shee lighter, and it definitely has almond, which Halfling does not (to my nose, anyway). The almond seems like a top note in Dana, because it kind of burns off. The scent dries down to this sort of pearly, glowing skin scent (if you've tried Snow White, it has a similar quality, but Dana isn't floral or cold like Snow White is). I find Dana O'Shee to be really subtle and not as foody as Halfling once the almond calms down. Biggnerd's oatmeal vs. honeyed milk comparison is one I'd echo. Edit: also, I'm obviously influenced by the concepts of each scent somewhat, but Dana O'Shee is more delicate/ethereal to me (totally faery food) whereas Halfling is hearty and cozy, like something a Halfling might cook up for breakfast at an inn. ☺️

    Halfling

    This smells like a warm bowl of the yummiest porridge ever, with fig and toasted nuts on top, plus some fresh, cold whole milk. It's sweet, foody, and very cozy. To me, it's like a mid-point between Dana O'Shee, which is lighter, and Dies Patribus, which is sweeter.

    Sleepytime BPAL

    I love Dana O Shee, so I'm biased, but I absolutely think it's a good sleepytime scent. It starts off a little sweet-almondy, but that does fade into a light, delicate scent. The honey is not very sweet or strong, IMO. I find it comforting but unobtrusive.

    Cedarwood & Smoked Vanilla

    Warm, dry cedar and sheer vanilla musk. There is a nice smoky aspect that dances around the edges of the scent, but it's definitely not the focus. This is a subtle, unisex perfume. I really like this; the notes are blended well and complement each other with their dry almost-sweetness. But it's definitely a skin scent without much throw, and it sadly doesn't last very long on my skin.

    Goblin

    This is earthy gorgeousness; it reminds me of something between Death Cap and Banshee Beat/Revenant Rhythm. I wouldn't have thought I'd be a gnarly patch person, but I love it combined with the coconut and sweet benzoin. Definitely one of the many jewels from the GC. It will be fun to wear on days when I want to feel a bit feral.

    Suggestions...

    You might enjoy Eostre of the Dawn ("jasmine and honeysuckle, sweet milk and female skin"), which is one of my favorite honeysuckle scents even though jasmine usually doesn't work for me. It doesn't come in imp size from the Lab unfortunately, but there are usually some decants available in the sales section here. For water lily, I really like The Lady of Shalott ("calm waters just before a raging storm, limned with achingly-beautiful blooms, an icy scent, but somehow warm, and mirror-bright: bold gardenia, crystalline musk, muguet, water blossoms, clear, slightly tart aquatic notes and a crush of white ginger"), if you don't mind a bit of an aquatic vibe. This one is general catalogue and available in imps, at least!

    Hotaru No Yu Hair Gloss

    I am a bit wary of jasmine, but love lilac and honeysuckle, so I had to grab this before it came down. The jasmine comes out in a heady blast, but quickly steps aside for gorgeous lush lilac and honeysuckle. I think the grass and amber sweeten the scent in a non-floral direction, but the lilac is definitely at the forefront. The initial strength of the scent does not last, but is still detectable for a while when I smell my hair. This will be perfect for springtime.

    Tombstone

    My skin amps the vanilla and sassafras here; although it smells really yummy, I wish my skin let the woods come out more, as I love cedar. As is, it smells more like vanilla root beer on me than sexy outlaw, alas.

    Nectar Hair Gloss

    I love the Lab's honey + honeysuckle combos, so I love this. It smells like honey, wildflowers, and sheer loveliness. Delicate, but heady; a little goes a long way.

    Please Scream Inside Your Heart

    Omg, I love this. I enjoy foodie scents but they aren't necessarily my main attraction, yet this is glorious. It smells like incredibly realistic cinnamon churros, and makes my mouth water every time I take a huff as my brain wonders where the sugar and fried dough is. There is a really interesting whoosh of fresh air vibe to it, but I honestly can't tell if that's part of the scent or just, you know, my nose breathing in air along with it. Either way, this is a really delicious, cheerful scent that makes missing late summer/early autumn social activities feel more bearable. Edit: just want to add that after a few days of rest, the fried dough note is coming through even more realistically - maybe whatever spice is in here is helping with that? I can't tell at this point if it's cinnamon or actually cardamom. Either way, yum.

    Pink Lovebird

    I love the cardamom note in this; it's sugared and clear and probably my favorite cardamom note I've smelled so far from any house honestly. The cotton candy and cake come out more as the scent dries down. Everything melds beautifully. This wasn't one I initially had on my radar, but I'm really glad I ended up with a decant. It smells lovely with Green Lovebird, too.

    Pineapple, White Musk, & Blackcurrant

    My skin amps the white musk in this for some reason. I really like the pineapple I get; I don't smell much currant, which is weird because usually I amp currant notes. This is light and fruity, but my skin eats it up really fast. Doesn't last a half hour on my silly skin. Edit: just wanted to update and say that one of my sisters loves this and think it smells like grilled pineapple. My decant found a good home with her. ❤️

    Honey and Beeswax scents

    I will second Bengal and third Mead Moon! Bengal is more dry-spicy, whereas the spice in Mead Moon is a bit more subtle. I really love Mead Moon, though, it's different from other honey scents I've tried.
