    Queen of Elphame

    To me, this seems in the same family as The Girl, Ava, and I Sit and Sew. It has a few similarities to Woman at the Edge of the Woods as well, though this is less earthy. Overall, this is a very sheer, ethereal "green" vanilla, with a light backdrop of jasmine and lily of the valley. I get more vanilla and yew than plum, but maybe I will detect that more at some point. Quite lovely and faery like.

    White Clover, Elderflower, and Apple

    This is really beautiful. 💚 It's a crisp, perfumey apple (like the apple in Honeyed Apple IMO) with a backdrop of fresh clover and bright elderflower. It makes me think of rolling around in a clover field or a fairy circle or something; I definitely recommend if you like the notes.🍀🍏

    The Fairy Lovers

    This is really, really pretty. 😍 The gardenia and moonflower have that creamy narcotic floral quality, and it blends so beautifully with the vanilla and crimson labdanum (which kind of has a red musk ish quality but . . . not musky, not so overpowering). The amber and moss kind of skew it toward a more classic floral perfume on the dry down, but it retains that dewy moonlit floral vibe. The rose is more detectable to me on the dry down too, but this never really strikes me as a rose forward perfume, it's just there supporting the other notes. It reminds me of The Last Unicorn, but is less earthy and more floral. Really happy to have a bottle.

    An Assortment of Spring Pleasures

    I enjoy this a lot. It's a really nice lightly honeyed tea scent, though I also smell peony rather than cocoa. I just got an imp of Dormouse and agree that it's similar to that, though this is more "fresh/clean" than herbal.

    Rain Scents

    Another new one I really like is A Wet Moon, Putney Road (Rain-slick amber, gaslight, and moss).

    Spring’s Awakening (The Snow Maidens)

    The Lab's slushy snow note with a very pretty bunch of dewy white florals. The florals, at least at this point, are not sharp or indolic, but tempered by the snow. It captures the artwork and theme quite well, though I don't think I'd wear this enough to upgrade to a bottle (even though I adore the artwork).

    Labdanum, Red Musk, Scorched Vanilla

    This is lovely! 😍 It's a very sweet, smooth red musk with a sweet labdanum (not the sour kind) and a gorgeous vanilla. The scorched vanilla note is a little ethereal, in that it's not very strong (not like butterscotch or caramel or smoke), but does have a lightly scorched scent . . . Kind of like a lightly charred marshmallow but without the mallow. The vanilla weaves in and out of the scent, subtle but bolstering the sweetness of the other notes.

    Ice Age Baton

    Another gorgeous vanilla scent; the Lab has been on a roll lately with them! (Not that they haven't been before, it just seems like I've been falling in love with an inordinate amount lately). This one is kind of like the beautiful medium between Zorya P and Muddy Armadillo, both of which I love. Like Zorya P, this has an ethereal vanilla quality, though in a more powdery (chalky) way, with a sweet tobacco dancing underneath. The cacao is soft, deep, and earthy, and makes me think of something delicious baking in the distance without skewing the scent gourmand. The cacao isn't as thick or sludgey as in Muddy Armadillo, and the tobacco plays a lighter hand as well here. Ice Age Baton settles into a pretty, powdery, aura like skin scent after an hour or so, which makes it one I'll probably be able to wear to the office without fear of it being overpowering or overly identifiable as perfume. Edit: I haven't had this change much with rest so far; just wanted to note that I'm not getting the harsh metallic qualities others are . . . I find this soft vanilla with powdery chocolate. I'm not sure if this means there was a batch variation or if my sniffer just enjoys whichever thing isn't working for some. 🤔

    Milk, Burnt Honey, And Ambrette Seed

    When I first got this, it was all caramelized honey on me, which was nice but similar to other scents I have. However, after some rest the milk and ambrette seed are blossoming and mingling with the honey in gorgeous ways. The milk note is similar to the one in Snake Milk, smooth and non-sour, and the ambrette gives it an almost malted shake quality without being too gourmand. I think the ambrette really adds something special to the mix.

    Almond Blossoms

    Wet, this is a marzipan-like, cherry-ish blast of almond, but this quickly recedes as it dries. Then it's a very delicate almond blossom, almost like an almond blossom musk, and a lovely cream note that feels almost toasted due to the almond. At the moment it wears pretty close to the skin, but I catch lovely wafts of it here and there. If you're an almond fan, you can't really go wrong with this one.

    Snake Milk

    This has that heady, spicy vanilla Snake Oil thing going on but also a delicious smooth, sugared milk note that doesn't go sour on me at all. The comparison to creme brulee is spot on. I'm in the camp of enjoying Snake Oil but not being obsessed with it, but this is definitely one of my favorite iterations of it. I already put a rare backup bottle in my cart.

    Strawberries, Red Musk, and May Rose

    This is a candy-sweet strawberry red musk blend with a hint of dewy rose. Kind of like a sugared strawberry incense next to some rose petals. Very pretty!

    Vanilla Bean, Marshmallow, and Benzoin

    Poofy vanilla marshmallow. Simple but very appealing. It starts out with a cereal marshmallow type smell, then the benzoin comes out and gives it some depth and that delightful hits-in-the-back-of-your-nose feel from TKO and Place of Seeing (at least to me). It doesn't have a ton of throw or longevity on me so far, but aging might very well help with that. I'm glad to have a bottle!

    And Though They Are With You Yet They Belong Not To You

    Simple, elegant, and lovely. A fragrant (but not overpowering) sandalwood with a sweet (but nonfoody) vanilla, perfectly balanced. It's a soft scent without a ton of throw, but has good longevity. Fans of Like A Girl, wood-and-vanilla duets, or the NAVA sandalwood-vanilla blends would definitely enjoy this. I think this will layer beautifully and be a great gentle scent for work environments.

    Nightingale

    This scent is like if Dana O'Shee and Hay Moon 2020 had a baby, which means it's stunning, cozy, and wonderful. I definitely recommend this for fans of cardamom-vanilla scents.
