    Deuteronomy 10:18

    Ouhhhh this is a *gorgeous * patchouli situation. Wet, the patchouli is here to kick ass!! And on the dry down the hay and woddsiness comes out to temper it, and all three mingle beautifully. This is deep brown warm and cozy-sexy, makes me think of an old man in his study in a Victorian mansion(think Digory from narnia when he's old) but the hay makes it so its summer and the windows are open a spicy breeze is mingling with the old wooden furniture... I've been a patch enjoyer for some time yet but I think I've fallen in love!!

    Cottage Garden

    Ohhhh this is *lovely*. A perfect melange of wildflowers, clovers, grasses brings to mind lying in a field in the springtime and there's that green so rich and damp you can taste it, that anticipatory almost- raining scent in the air.... it wafts around beautifully so I get hit with gusts of it. There's a certain greenhouse air to it to. If it were still in stock I'd certainly grab a backup, it's a perfect spring scent

    Charcoal, Champa Resin, and Tobacco Absolute

    Agree with the comparison to my beloved an Opiate Vapor! Definitely softer, hard to describe but it does exactly what it says on the tin- alluring in a cozy comforting sort of way, it's dry and warm and makes me think of curling up under the jacket of someone who smokes (nothing cig-like in here just the lovely tobacco!). It's a lovely night-time scent :))

    Kentucky Bourbon Fruitcake

    I agree with fiam's analysis!! Starts over v yummy candied syrupy maraschino cherry with just a hint of liquor to come, and after a bit on the skin is that gorgeous bourbon. I can't detect any cake or spice, maybe that will show up with age? Either way, I'm quite chuffed with how it is now- I adore heavy alcohol scents and this bourbon smells *incredible*

    An Opiate Vapor

    I was originally gonna pass on this one cause past me was silly and thought they didn't like any florals- but, being ever a fool who is easily parted from their money! I got it mostly due to my love for the sleeper collection as a whole. And oh mannn this is a new holygrailslathermycorpseinthisplease situation. I'm nothing short of infatuated. It certainly is recognizably floral- but it's sort of a pretty, lilting undertone to the star of the show my beloved OPIUM TAR!! my gods it is incredible. Not a note my nose is used to picking out so at first I didn't know how I could explain this scent at all- it smells like being smothered by a warm, woolen blanket in the middle of the night cause you're scared of the monsters watching you- dreamy in a strange, foreign and yet undeniably alluring way, like those dreams of all different worlds where so many strange things are happening and when you wake up you can't help but feel you were meant to stay there, actually. It's irresistibly alluring, in a strange, hazy exotic way. I cannot overstate how in love I am and I will be keeping a watch out for any perfumes with this note in the future! Less helpfully, it smells like my grandparents often would when I was a child and it makes me miss them dearly while also being soothing in a way. Why my good Christian grandparents consistenly smelled like opium does leave me with some questions, but I digress! This is a ramble and I shall not apologize!

    Unarmed and Laughing

    Soo I almost never go for vanilla-heavy scents, they're not my jam but I adore champagne notes. So I went for this. And boy howdy it is gorgeous!! It starts off very fizzy yummy slightly vanillic champagne , and over the course of an hour or so the champagne lets the vanilla amber shine through, while still chillin out in the back. It's yummy without being foodie at all, and quite warm and... sensual dare I say? And impressively long lasting as well! I'm a cook and after 10 hrs straight of cooking, spilling sauces on myself etc (the usual, gross habits of my job) I could still smell this lovely warm vanilla-y goodness on my wrist. All in all this one was a very nice surprise win for me!!

    The Hall of Forgotten Gods Atmosphere Spray

    Incense and a definite charred note that makes me think of barbecue (not the food aspect, but the burnt-ness!). Really quite lovely, and i got complimented on my smell while wearing it to the store today !!

    Carved Wooden Abattoir

    Gorgeous spicy pine, with some dragon's blood and a metallic strangeness hovering in the background. I agree with the comparison to my beloved torch steeped in blood, if you like that one, give the slaughterhouse a try! It's beautiful!

    Dead Leaves, Boot Leather, and Sweet Grass

    If you like these notes, then this is a winner for sure. I LOVE this, quite possibly my favorite weenie of the year. It's perfectly balanced, the dead leaves don't drown anything out- it is perfectly evocative, balanced and lovely. Like a sexy, (not muddy!) cowboy.

    Jack In The Green

    Fresh, this is all green growing trees and forest floor- quite lively and lovely! After about an hour on the skin a sort of woody spice comes out and mingles with the greenery. This makes me think of springtime, it's beautiful!

    The Sheepfold, Moonlight

    This is my new perfect night-time scent. The overall vibe so cozy and comforting. I'm a huge hay whore and this hay is on the drier, greener end of things- the wool complements it perfectly, it's like a soft gentle dream in a barn with all the stars of the country watching over you- I'm in love! Theres a definite lovely cleanness to this scent too. It's making me think of a baby blanket- you know that scene in spirited away, the giant baby's room in the night- this scent is like a pile of squishy pillows and soft walls, with the gentle ambered yellow glow of the moon rounding all the edges. Ugh, I wanna live in a dark pillowy blanket world. How lovely would that be? Will have to procure a backup bottle!

    Fern, Red Clover, and Wild Lettuce

    Fresh in the bottle, it's all clover and leafy fern- very fresh and vegetal, like you're in a greenhouse in the spring, full of green growing things. On the skin it stays fresh and green, with a bit of sweetness from the clover holding things together. This is a decidedly 'clean' scent, but is nowhere near soapy to me, this is rolling around in a field of ferns n clovers in the spring, after a rainfall, all the stems getting crushed underneath you. Absolutely stunning, I want to snort this, inject it into my veins maybe? Suffice to say I'm obsessed.

    Torta Setteveli

    Storts off with a river of fudgy creamy milky chocolate, dries down to a delicious nutella-esque smooth, nutty chocolate confection. Scrumptious!!

    Autumn 1990

    In the bottle, this is stanky dead rotting leaves slapping you in the face.(which i love!) Once on the skin, the leaves calm down just a little and there's a strange, sharpness maybe? behind them (is that you, hairspray? Exhaust?) And the clove starts to peek out from under the leaf pile. I love the dead leaves note, the clove does not overpower it on me- they play nice, though they are both quite strong. This is very evocative, I adore stranger scents like this- I am so glad I got a bottle of this!! It's beautiful!

    Pomegranate, Brown Sugar, and Tobacco

    Scrumptious! in the bottle it's all juicy, fresh bright pomegranate. Seemingly single note pom like the others say- however on my skin, after a little time to calm down the brown sugar comes out, making the rambunctious pomegranate mature a little. The tobacco is hiding but is smoothing things out in the back, giving our pom crumble something stable to rest upon. This is a crisp, sticky-syrupy fruit dessert, she's delicious! When I saw this one I knew it would be lovely and I was right!
