    Dead Leaves, Moss, and Mushrooms

    It’s been several months since I’ve worn this one, and I forgot how interesting it is! It is earthy and green, dirty and fresh, natural and perfumey, all at the same time. I find it to be so pleasantly creepy, solemn, dignified. (Was getting ready while watching Ask a Mortician videos this morning and this was the scent I chose, if that says anything.) It’s somewhat masculine, but not overwhelmingly so. It’s like what a woodland elf king would smell like.

    The Queen of May

    Very brightly floral, like cracked flower stems, on first application. On the the skin it really blooms and I believe the white musk adds depth and sweetness. It’s very pretty, although reminiscent of funeral flowers when sniffed in the bottle. I bought this one last minute after originally opting for two others from the Spiritus collab (Osculum Infame and Hexentanz). I’m glad I picked it up, as I believe this one is, surprisingly, my favorite. This is exactly the kind of floral scent I love.

    The Jersey Devil

    Not getting much pine here. Very sweet and earthy at the same time, and strangely, seems perfect both for summer and for Christmas time! Probably won’t upgrade to a bottle just because it faded so quickly on me, and now when I sniff my arm the fruit notes have gone vaguely plasticky. It is very nice, though.

    Sed Non Satiata

    My initial thought was that this is a soft, whispery scent like a cool breath. Vaguely pleasant, but didn’t leave much of an impression. Now, this has gone straight soapy baby powder on me, as geranium is wont to do. Was hopeful about all the other notes, but it took two minutes flat to go wrong on me. Don’t smell any musk or honey or patchouli, unfortunately. Edit: An hour later, much muskier and alas, a hint of honey!

    Pumpkin Smut

    Quite yummy, spicy, and straightforward. For me, it starts out overtly pumpkin spice, then dries down into boozy, Smutty musk, close to the skin with not much pumpkin left. Hoping it will last longer on my skin after a bit more aging!

    A-Rovin'

    Wow! This is one sexy scent, perfect for summer. I definitely get more honey in the bottle than on the skin, where a lusty, heady jasmine dominates. If I sniff close to the skin I get carnation and smoky leather, and I smell the musk if I think hard. Much closer to the skin than I anticipated, but not without a nice throw. I feel like there’s a gorgeous, delicious, incensey, floral haze around me—one that would make others want to get closer for a more intimate whiff.

    Honey, Black Lilies, and Gardenia Petals

    The honey in this one is much stickier than the honey in Honey, Mahogany and Incense Smoke, at least to my nose. It’s thick and syrupy and hazy. Agree that it is almost spicy. I wish I smelled the florals a *touch* more strongly, and I wish it stuck around as long for me as it seems to for others, but it is lovely.

    Honey, Mahogany, and Incense Smoke

    Oh....my. I still have to finish testing all my Lupers, but I already know this one is a favorite, and I didn’t expect it to be such a stand-out! Honey works well on my skin, and this one is the perfect amount of not-too-sweet. It’s not overbearing at all, and simply functions to sweeten up the wood and smoke in a very well-balanced combination. Just what I like. Seriously, it’s a dream.

    Amoretti LXXV

    This is ambery-appley goodness with touches of vanilla and musk. Possibly the fig is making the apple smell extra pulpy and deeper than I’d normally expect apple to be. Gorgeous and juicy and can’t wait for it to age!

    Samhain

    2020 Version: For reference, I’ve never had another year of Samhain. When I first got this in the mail, for the first week or two, this was ALL APPLES. But not like crisp fresh apples, more like spicy sweet apple cider. It was nice, but almost astringent, and I wanted more of the other notes to peek out more so I’ve been letting it sit for about three months and gave it another test drive today. AND WOW IS THIS GOOD. It is THE smell of autumn. It’s still spicy and I can smell the apples still, but it’s so much more complex after just a few months. I can smell the leaves and crisp autumn air and the dirt and the clove and the nutmeg. I can only imagine how delicious this will be by actual Samhain this year, and in the years to come.

    Quintessence of Dust

    I get mostly sweet, sweet beeswax. It smells old, somehow reminds me of studying in the basement of my university library. It’s a good beeswax blend if you like the Lab’s beeswax/honey, but I will have to keep testing it to see if the complexities come out for me.

    Adam

    Adam...... mmmmm mm mmm.... what can I say about Adam that hasn’t been said? It is certainly...unique. Chemically and dusty in the bottle, It’s evocative of an old living room, the furniture still covered in plastic. Smell it a little longer and you might be reminded of drying off after spending a day in the pool, chlorine on skin. At first, I was not brave enough to approach Adam directly. It wasn’t unpleasant, but something about it gave me a slight headache and a vague feeling of nostalgic unease. But on my skin, it completely blooms. The fougere and sandalwood come out to mingle with a warm, worn, SEXY leather, and I can’t stop smelling myself. It lasts at least a day on me. This is an addictive scent that you are forced to get to know in order to love, like a hot but emotionally unavailable guy. I can’t get enough of Adam now, and apparently, he can’t get enough of me either!

    Café Mille et une Nuits

    Chewy and syrupy, a little bit spicy, and almost chocolate-y to my nose? The coffee is VERY sweet, not bitter at all. The sweetness, I’m guessing, is coming from the shisha. I love it, and my partner really likes this one in particular, too. Maybe it reminds us of the coffee/hookah shop he used to work at. This is truly a comfort scent—more of a scent experience than a perfume, really. It feels like being snuggled up with a book and coffee in my cozy dream apartment. Guessing this will age very nicely!

    So Below

    I wish I were as enthusiastic about this one as so many others seem to be! I think something about the way the amber and coconut mix is not sitting completely right with my nose. It’s not horrible and not unwearable, and the cloying sweetness seems to blend into the background after a while, but I keep trying to understand this one and I think my nose is not cooperating. I definitely don’t get smoky or sexy from this, which is what I was hoping for. It’s growing on me, but not a favorite.

    As Above

    To me, this is definitely “daytime Haute Macabre.” The leathery, almondy, vanilla-y oakiness is a winner in both IMO. The differences between the two are not huge (not sure I can tell the difference between black and white patchouli, for example), but this one is a touch lighter/more wearable which I imagine is partially the jasmine’s doing. I actually wish I got more jasmine out of this! And I pretty much always wish I got more patchouli out of everything, so no surprise that that’s true here, too. Still a beautiful scent.
