    Black Silk Orchid

    Does anyone else read the tuberose in this more as a gardenia note? Overall: Incredibly soft and pretty-- I would have thought this would be out of character for me, but it's just a real pleasure, and incredibly soft also in the sense that I feel the need to sniff deeply and very close to my arm-- it doesn't exactly fill a room. I can't get enough.

    Scarecrow Boytoy

    The drydown reminds me of Abandoned Farmhouse atmosphere spray(!).

    I Know You're Watching Me

    Does anyone else remember Secret Powder Fresh deodorant from the 80s? That’s here, and some other thing(s) that make it fascinating to me.

    Pomegranate Peach Martini

    This has a “poisonous” quality I didn’t expect. Many scents just say “dessert” to me, which is fine when you’re in the mood… but I really love this! If anyone can think of other BPALs that feel poisonous (& not just ‘cause of their names), let me know!

    And Here I Hear the Fowles Singe

    At first: flowery, soapy bubble bath (reminds me of Zachariah 7:9-10, but with a honeyed facet)… then a sort of “tangy” clove; a little while later, something that reminds me of… nutmeg? caraway seeds? This aspect reminds me of Mr. Fezziwig’s Ball, which I love! A kind of yummy, not-sweet “baking”/bready thing. Hours later: clean laundry!

    Black Ice Sleeper

    I got apple at first, and a little later… guava?!

    Dead Leaves, Balsam, Olibanum, and Tonka Bean

    Reminds me of olives for some reason. I don't know what balsam or tonka smell like by themselves.

    Dead Leaves, Peppercorn, and Pumpkins

    Just got this, here are my notes: Similar to other Dead Leaves I've tried (DL Red Wine & Black Oudh; DL Balsam Olibanum and Tonka), but… A little sweeter? Not desserty, though. I'm smelling something like celery and pumpkin! Maybe other "savory" cooking herbs/spices... like cumin? Definitely reminds me of autumnal cooking smells! Like cooking a fancy soup(?)

    Pecan Pie Oud

    It’s practically CRIMINAL that this isn’t available as a full bottle (in case anyone’s listening...!) Full review later.
