    Nocturnal Witches Scene

    The first three minutes is unbearable liquid smoke in a smokehouse. I feel some panic as it is very much not my thing and reminds me slightly of my favorite trader Joe's smoked trout. Miraculously the intense onset subsides and I am left with a pleasant bonfire plus some interesting soft incensey woodsy edges. I absolutely agree with zankoku zen's lapsang souchong assessment. Elegant scent version of a day after sitting next to a bonfire clothing smell.

    Frou-Frou

    Seconding previous reviews! Creamy dollhead scent. Much milder that Tombstone, and cognac sheet ghost comparisons, though I get it since there's a dusky powder sandalwood-y type undertone. Soft.

    Almond scent recs (inc. cherry almond; marzipan)

    Black Phoenix, Hecate, 7 word story wrath, I also think the recent batty releases are very almond centered but that might just be something I'm sensitive to

    Pumpkin Gas Can

    Oh the bpal pumpkin spice is always pretty -- so specific and recognizable! Hi! I get a minute of the petrol-y motor grease kerosene smell, which is delightful but fleeting, then it starkly shifts to intense celery salt and strong pumpkin spice candle. This could be an issue with my dry ass skin and 60ish degree weather though. The remnants smell good on my sheets, but it's really distinctive and the mystery celery is too distracting for me to wear.

    Batty Snake Oil

    Almond extract + extra vanilla + classic og snake oil. I might could retest this, but I wasn't having the leather musty experience that seems to dominate the previous reviews. Definitely more of a please scream in your snake oil type experience for me. Floofy and pleasant.

    The Hound and the White Milk Doe

    Soft white floral. The sandalwood, liquidambar round out the floral with a really soft pleasant warmth. The jasmine is not stinky nor centerstage. The rosewater and coconut aren't super loud or recognizable, but add to the overall white floral creamy dry palette. The scent isn't sweet, but a lightly dry vague white floral. I tend not to wear this sort of scent but it's really well done. Agree with the above comment about luper release vibes. Regal, graceful, elegant are appropriate descriptors. I find it a bit like something a platinum blonde femme fatale in a noir film would wear.

    Man With a Haunted House for a Face

    Fresh on application, simultaneously a little oldy. Wood, oak/sandalwood fan with a root beer flavored dust/powder. Really mild, light, bright and approachable. No polish, no cedar, no pine tree. Antikythera device mademoiselle light flanker. Very likable.

    Mummy Milk

    Hehe! I love it! I wasn't sure what I was getting into. The listed notes seemed to feature some extremes. I wasn't sure how condensed milk and bitumen would fit together. I'd sought out Mummy Milk for the mummy parts, I love those dusty old BPALs and museum smells. I'm kind of whatever about coconut and realistic gourmands, but crazy for resins. She smelled like buttery and milk candy in the bottle. Upon application it smells like toasted rice, coconut, sticky rice, sweet but not overwhelming sweet. I find the smell of cooking rice very pleasant. Overall a comforting, warm, cute smell after application. My partner said I smelled like luxury popcorn. Not too coconut-y, no sunscreen type smells thankfully! Also not super sweet, I wasn't sure is the condensed milk note would be next level over the top, but it's just right. I do perceive some cotton/linen type smells but overall the listed notes are well blended into a happy cloud. It reminds me of some of the Lilith or Shunga releases, but mainly because of mood. As it dries I think it starts to smell more elegant.

    Cacao, Black Leather, and Incense

    Imagine the Nosferatu GC oil, minus blood and wine scents but with chocolate instead. Mild chocolate sweetness, atmospheric diffuse airy leather crypt scent.

    Methods of Relaxation and Leisure

    I think I need to re try this again. Is my skin that dry and fussy? I get a wildly over the top artificial honey on application and overall high pitched sweetness, very sweet skin musk overall, nothing else.

    Pazuru

    Very subdued, charming. Honey, white musk, and florals, in general I am ambivalent about and really find the strength of the notes to be deal breakers. Fear not! This is really quite different from expectations based on notes in description Mild, elegant, well blended. This also reminds me spiritually of some of the fae scents like Fairy Lovers and Oberon, Titania, etc, but I could be tripping since Pazuru is comparatively not as sweet or floral. Against Mischief and Idleness is a GC favorite of mine; Pazuru is more ethereal and upscale distant cousin. Gauzy sandalwood, light very mild chamomile mild wildflower honey opening, overall very smooth, sheer, well blended. Androgenous, sexy, expensive smelling upbeat everyday/daytime scent. Low throw. Would be like holy fuck amazing to smell this on someone I was on a date with/getting a hug from.

    Kon Kurabe Tama No Ase

    So... My experience was fairly similar to the other reviews on first application, sweet, pleasant, nutty Background -- I admittedly was stepping out of my comfort zone, since I find marzipan, pistachio milk, and vanillas delightful, and have enjoyed other darker BPAL blends featuring clove and cinnamon, but knew there was a chance that it might be too sweet or the blend might not be my thing. I did not care for the scent after it's initial application -- which was reminiscent of a Monin macadamia syrup (which I love). The fragrance settles on my skin as a sweet flat cinnamon+clove scent which reminds me of Trader Joe's cinnamon brooms and clove in potpourri. I'm not sure if it's skin chemistry or my super fussiness around clove and cinnamon, but I'm rather lukewarm/cold fish on this one.

    Con El Dolor de la Mortal Herida

    Big heady red roses is right! This is exactly as the listed notes indicate, a voluptuous rose, sandalwood = mysteriousness and a opening flash of the frankincense that I recognize from Traditional Sheet Ghost. While I'm mentioning other BPAL scents, I think Con El Dolor... is spiritually similar with Harlot or Spellbound (dark, sensual and rose forward) moreso than Rose Cross or Little Wooden Doll (resinous lil baby rose). I enjoy the big ripe juiciness of the rose, but at the same time the sandalwood is dry brown and velvety. Oh la la The opening is pretty huge and very much what she says on the bottle. It did end up calming down within an hour into a rosey sandalwood, however it is still powerful! I think this is a quite accurate pairing with the Sor Juana poem, big drama. I'm kind of getting a vague hint of Guerlain Samsara vibe but I may be tripping. See also: sexy, velvet pillows, red lipstick in gold tubes, glamor, warm woody exotic. Spiritual? Sophisticated, Hot mom 🥵 Death Becomes Her vibes? Also might smell very dashing on the right sort of gentlemen.

    First Class Upgrade

    I've been really into the 2022 Liliths that I've tried. It took me forever to get a tester of this one, as I tend to be suspect of clean, rich bitch, fancy scents. I tend to agree with the above reviews, though I find First Class Upgrade to be approachable, softly sweet, creamy, airy and perhaps a little bit of a suggestion of nutty almondy, low key amber frank golden glow. Possibly androgenous, light, pleasant, casual, everyday/office appropriate, not too perfumey or high freq floral. Attractive and charming. It has a $300 designer candle version of a cabbage patch doll head vibe. I quite like it. Upscale yarn store vibes.

    Like Ghosts the Shadows Rise and Fall

    On my this is a big glamorous jasmine. To me it's not particularly sweet, the oud, vetiver, and patchouli are support players, which don't really come into play in an identifiably strong way, but as touch of vaguely dark background. I am more perceptive of the jasmine plus amber, which to me reads as a big floral style perfume. Like perfume as in what I picture ladies wearing on dates with full makeup and nails did, hair styled, fancy drawers, diva mode. I'm a patchouli and vetiver lover, so I was drawn in by the patch+vet+oud description, which would probably be a big nope for the people that would most be into it potentially? However it really isn't as intense as the notes listed. I think it might be worth a try for those drawn to sophisticated jasmine, platinum blonde Lana Turner vibe perfumes. Classic floral Oriental with wood.
