    2015: Lace Phoenix

    I wish I was getting what everyone else is, because a sweet lemony incense sounds wonderful. Unfortunately, on me this is an astringent 'clean' smokiness with a lot of heavy/harsh polished woods underneath. I can totally see this being someone's style but I'm not a woods fan.

    O Spirit of Love

    Very bright, almost soapy rose. I'm not getting much vanilla to be honest, and this is the kind of rose that really doesn't like my skin chem.

    No Coward Soul is Mine

    A classic BPAL lavender - really lovely, with some hint of spice which might be the rockrose? Either way it complements the lavender well and really reminds me of the TAL Peace blend.

    They Shut Me Up in Prose

    I'm not sure how this went so wrong on me, although it's probably the sandalwood. I was hoping for a gossamer complex vanilla, but instead it was cloying vanilla with weird grainy textures underneath.

    I Sit and Sew

    A sophisticated green tea! It has slight floral nuances and the vanilla really just smooths things out rather than making anything sweet. After it dries down it gets a lil sweeter and is just really gorgeous.

    In Omnibus Caritas

    Slightly musty rich honey with the evil grainy sandalwood asserting itself underneath.

    Clear and clean without smelling like soap. I think it's mainly the lily, aloe, and linen note that I get. Definitely a translucent kind of scent.

    Haitian Vetiver

    I loove vetiver and have some blends made by the Lab that feature it gorgeously, but this went so horribly wrong. It's all very savoury dark bbq sauce somehow.

    Vanilla Bean, Tuberose & Jasmine

    Lovely humid tropical floral! Definitely with a nice soft vanilla undertone. The tuberose and jasmine complement each other really well, they're not shrieky at all, just ripe and opulent.

    Violet & Pale Woods

    Definitely a well-balanced violet that isn't too green or sweet, over woods that aren't too commanding or heavy at all.

    Aged Vetiver, Chocolate & White Sandalwood

    Like crumbly gnarly chocolate - the sandalwood and vetiver are mostly lending texture to the chocolate, which is the main scent.

    Rosewater & Myrrh

    This scent taught me that I hate myrrh. It's the dusty slightly sour gritty thing that's hanging out under a lovely fresh rose.

    Peppermint & Pine

    Like very fresh pine wardrobes lol - nice and Christmassy if you like pine!

    Lemon Peel, Marshmallow & Orange Blossom

    Definitely orange blossom with a nice tartness from the lemon peel. The marshmallow isn't particularly soft or fluffy, it's more just lending a gourmand sweetness to the scent.

    Cemetery Creep

    Vanilla flower always smells surprisingly clean to me, so this isn't really a sweet scent. It's more a clean white floral over some powdery orris.
