    Horses

    When I first put this on it reminded me of V'al Hanissim however, Horses dries down to a gorgeous amber finish which is different from V'al. I recognized the amber as the same lovely one from The Grey Columns. I absolutely love this scent, the dry down is magical! V'al had too much beeswax for me personally and The Grey Columns was too light a scent so this is a great option!

    Radiation Fog

    I don't do aquatics but the name intrigued me lol and I'm a sucker for Fallout. It's actually a really nice for an aquatic and I'm glad I got to try this one out!

    Leaden Fog

    I get the smoke, orris and sandalwood and I do really like the smokiness. I agree it is reading a bit dry and clean to me also and for that reason this scent didn't work for me.

    Cacao and Oud

    I agree this is a gorgeous duet! The oud adds depth to the cacao and keeps it from being too foody. I feel like this will age really well! This would be a good everyday scent! Love it!

    To A Dead Friend

    I too really liked the beginning wet phase with plum, rose and musk. It does seem to go through somewhat of a soapy phase but I do find the drydown of swirling florals to be quite intriging and I keep smelling my wrist.

    Pinched With Four Pumpkins

    Wet it goes on all chewy goodness but unfortunately, it dries down to a sweet tobacco coffee and the coffee note always goes weird on my skin. Still the best coffee scent I've tried from BPAL, it almost worked for me! Very good throw too!

    Death Is Death

    I get the smokey sweet opening as well and I quite love it! It dries down to sandalwood with a bit of myrrh. I kind of wish it kept it's sweet and smokey phase but regardless this is a really nice go-to scent. Not a large throw but good for days when you just want a skin scent.

    Moroccan Pumpkin

    This is definitely a warm, buttery, sweet pumpkin and it smells very similar to Adventuresome Encounters to me. I thought I was going to love Moroccan Pumpkin because Morocco is one of my top favorites however, I didn't enjoy the pumpkin note as much and I'd just rather wear Morocco personally. However, if you enjoy pumpkin and Morocco definitely give this one a go, it's a beautiful blend! I love the reference that marared said this is what melange from Dune would smell like!

    Still Life With Dooting Skull

    Wet I get a blast of sweet root beer in the best way possible! It mellows out to a more rounded out spiced honey which I quite like. However, as much as I love root beer and the smell of it I don't think I'd personally be reaching for it as a perfume very often.

    Razor Blade Candy Apple

    The apple goes on very fresh and I kinda loved it at first. It dried down to a very sweet baked apple scent tinged with something metallic and I agree it ends up smelling like a "fake apple". I'm glad I got to try it and I of course love the concept as I remember these candy tampering warnings as a kid during Halloween haha!

    Skies Grow Red With Rending Flame

    I love the blackened clove note in this. Unfortunately red musk doesn't work on my skin but I just wanted for this to work!

    Traditional Sheet Ghost

    I agree this is a nice clean laundered cotton scent. I don't get much frankincense or marshmallow either but they are there rounding out the edges. Nice but not for me personally.

    In Night When Colors All to Black Are Cast

    I loved this scent at first and still do however, I recently let it go because it got to be too much musk for me after a year of aging as musk usually does not get along with me. But otherwise this scent is amazing, I agree with the above poster that is has an oily almost jammy quality mixed in with the resins. The labdanum isn't overpowering or cola-like and the honey note isn't overly sweet but reads more plummy. A gorgeous deep purple slightly sweet scent and I wish my skin didn't amp the musk so much!

    Osculum Inflame

    This is a really nice amber/labdanum/incense blend right now but the labdanum is a bit too much for me as well. I have a feeling this will be beautiful once aged!

    The Queen of May

    This one surprised me by how much I liked it! I agree with Threemoons that there is a definite humming of bright alive flowers. The mix of flowers is quite lovely but there is definitely some danger in the background. I was tempted to keep this scent but I just don't reach for florals often enough. A really awesome scent!
