    I ordered an imp of White Rider because of its simplicity and was hoping that this would be the case. I feared that Black Rider would end up being "syrupy." Everyone's unsexy suggestions have been noted. I personally find Ranger to be unsexy leather (falls into the "cozy" category imo).

    So this is subjective and also kind of silly, but I'm curious. Forumites, what do you consider to be the most unsexy leather blends? I don't necessarily mean the coziest (though that can qualify). They can be unsettling or weird or cozy or nice or any other descriptor you can think of, just NOT sexy.

    Pomegranate Sufganiyot

    I really wanted to like this, but the donut dough ends up smelling more like play doh once it touches my skin and the cranberry does an overwhelming hostile takeover. I don't have a good record with berries. It blows that something more or less universally loved doesn't work for me at all, but what can ya do? At least I didn't spring for a full bottle.

    Meigetsu Ya

    I don't have anything poetic to say about this one. Buddy, that's orange soda! Doesn't last long, also like orange soda.

    Winter Sunset

    Something in this goes unpleasantly bitter and waxy on me for a good while. I could swear that narcissus was here, though it isn't in the note list. Heck, there aren't ANY florals in the note list. I'm baffled. Maybe what everyone else is reading as "clay" I'm interpreting as "wax." The maybe-narcissus does taper off and is replaced with pretty much pure clove after a while, and I do like clove. There are other clove scents I like more though, where I don't have to sit through a waxy nightmare to get to the good stuff.

    Don’t Lick It

    Not much to say about this one. Yup, that's a candy cane! Lasts longer than expected. Sweet and refreshing. Love it.

    Wheatstacks, Snow Effect, Morning

    I enjoy everything about this except the carnation, which behaves obnoxiously and keeps injecting a bubblegumminess into this that I dislike. Underneath the annoying bubblegumminess, there's a delicate dry grassy smell with a hint of fruity musk that's pretty enjoyable. Especially with the overbearing carnation, though, it's a little too delicate for me. I prefer The Icebergs.

    Gingerbread Invisible Man

    The gingerbread... It's invisible!! I don't get the bready, molasses-y, lasts-forever-y gingerbread that I experienced with Gingerbread Zombie here. Instead, I get a fizzy lemon-ginger concoction. It's a nice smell in its own right, but where the f*** is my gingerbread?

    To a Wreath of Snow

    This is beautiful. I wasn't impressed with it in the vial (I smelled lavender and not much else), but putting it on my skin seems to "activate" it. Once it's warmed up on my skin, it reminds me of a professor I used to occasionally pass by when I was in college. I never took any of his classes, but he would stand around outside smoking a pipe with really good smelling tobacco in it. It has a sweet, vanilla-like quality. Overall this is a lot sweeter than I had anticipated. This is a good thing. It keeps the tobacco flower from going off the rails as it so often does. In fact, it strikes me as surprisingly edible-smelling - were it not for the tobacco, I might wonder if I accidentally got a decant of lavender and white chocolate madelines. I want to wallow in a bathtub full of it.

    Ranger is all cozy leather, pine sap, and woods to me. Fighter's leather gave a glossy black impression, whereas Ranger is a well-worn suede. It's lazy cuddles on a couch with a granny-square blanket draped over the back of it in a rustic little lake house. I wouldn't have known that patchouli was in this if it wasn't in the note list; I usually find patch "dirty" smelling, but Ranger doesn't strike me as dirty at all. In the last minutes before the scent fades, up-close I detect something vaguely citrusy that reminds me of black musk. I believe that this particular Ranger is more cuddly than deadly, at least to their party members. This is a snuggly, comforting scent. And much like snuggles, I wish it lasted longer.

    Straight up cinnamon incense. Woody, smoky, a little spicy, kind of dirty. Amber adds powdery sweetness once it dries. Not entirely unpleasant, but too dirty for my liking.

    I received this as a frimp and was afraid of it because I expected it to be exceptionally earthy and gritty - a relative of Burial, I thought, and Burial made me feel physically ill. When I popped open the Nosferatu imp I was delighted with a rich wine scent with an almost cherry-like twang to it. Sweet but not too sweet. Red. It makes me smile. There is an inexplicable coolness to it as well, but in my opinion it's not like "rotting things in a crypt." This vampire lives in a cold cave full of stalactites that drip icy water onto your scalp if you don't watch your step. You adjust to the dim light and you see an array of luxurious velvet pillows and a nice rug that contrast amusingly with the rough stone walls. Something metallic emerges eventually. Maybe you've had so much wine by this point that you've failed to notice that your companion is drinking something suspiciously more viscous. This is a vampire that makes you go, "Eh, it was worth it" as the light leaves your eyes. 10/10, exceeded my expectations in every way. I'm baffled by the wildly different reviews on this.

    This isn't exactly a "me" scent because it turns out to be very earthy (I think due to the sage mostly), but it isn't unpleasant. The caramel note is so subtle to my nose that I wouldn't know it was there if it wasn't for the notes list. Minty tobacco is at the forefront - an herbal mint such as the one in Envy, not a candylike mint. It fades away after a while, as mint tends to do. I smell the white musk more than the black musk. Despite containing caramel, it's not really sweet. Overall, white musk and tobacco seem to be the stars of the show here.

    Queen reminds me of Dragon's Milk but I like it less. It opens with something sharp and unpleasant. I had thought maybe it was labdanum or Bad Honey at first, but the consensus seems to be that it's vetiver. I think this has honey and amber in it and I could swear that I detect heliotrope lingering at the end. I'd rather just have Dragon's Milk, but this will do while the Ars Draconis collection is MIA.
