    Beware: Pickpockets!

    Definitely heavy on the sugar crystals in this one. I do get the grapefruit, but it is very sweet, like candied grapefruit and vanilla. I do like it, but nothing beats NAVA Pink Grapefruit Frankincense for an authentic pink grapefruit scent. This one kind of reminds me of KnockOut drops, but less citrussy and with grapefruit instead of lemon. I'll keep the bottle.

    I Was Put an Alien in Their World

    Hmm, a lovely floral Snake. Getting soft florals at first, and fades to be pretty watery muted blend. I wish I were getting any kind of Snake Oil, but it's just soft, powdery florals. Maybe it's there, because the blend is reminding me of Cottonmouth, just a teeny bit, but with different florals, or maybe there are a similar floral component. It's nice, but I don't need any more. Looking forward to see what this dram does with some age behind it.
  3. OMG, oude right off, and it's a poopy one! The lavender is quite prominent at first as well. Gradually, this fades into a lovely green snake, with vanilla and soft lavender. I may need more of this (dram), it is quite 'oudy' at first, but ends up being (maybe a bit too soft), lovely green blend. I'm thinking that this will age quite nicely!

    Snakes in the Last Snows of Winter

    No no no, it's all snow all the time, not even a breath of a Snake. Glad I just went for a decant, so disappointing.
  5. Snake Oil and wildflower honey make this a more tone-downed Womb Furie with just a touch of cinnamon. I love orange blossom, but I can barely smell it. For those who found WF to be 'too much', they could give this a whirl. It is just too similar to this and other spice blends that I have and enjoy.

    Snakes in the Lemon Tree

    I love citrus and Snake Oil, but couldn't imagine how the two could pair together to make something lovely. At first, lemon and vetiver. It's almost like a fougre, I'm digging it at this point. More vanilla is coming out from the Snake Oil, and it's like lemon cookies fougre. I like this, but not enough to upgrade, it is a tad too masculine for me anyways. In a way, it reminds me of Dorian too.

    Chordae Tendineae

    Very perfumey from application to dry down. Dry, red musk dominant, but enjoyable, as I don't have a lot of scents in my collection that are like this. FWIW, I am not getting orange blossom, even though this is why I got this decant in the first place. OK to try, but not for me.

    Low-Hanging Junk

    At first, almond. The champagne note comes out and pretty much stomps all over everything. It then goes flat, like other reviewers have noted. I'm not fond of the lab's champagne note, and being that it's not even fizzy, this is a no go.

    Game Over

    Nothing like the dead here. Getting a sexy cherry first, along with blue cotton candy. Dries to a spun sugar cherry/berry lotion, but I mean that in the best way. This is a luscious, fun, summer blend. It smells high end and young. Reminds me of something like Fresh would formulate, only without the alcohols. I may try to procure more of this... ETA: This is not long wearing, and lasts only about an hour on my skin, I don't think that will stop me from getting more though...

    I almost went straight to bottle, but need to restrain myself. The notes all looked great to me, except sandalwood, which can often overpower a blend. At first, pretty much woody, perfumey sandalwood. After a bit, amber comes out, but sandalwood is still the star. This is smelling rather 'tinny' and metallic on me, and I'm glad I just went with the decant. I wish the vanilla and rice milk were more present, as I think it would have made this blend glorious. I'll keep the decant just to see, but for now, its just too sandalwood forward. eta: Weird that this is quite strong on me, while others have noted that it's a rather quiet blend.

    Unwelcome Suggestion

    I love orange blossom, and it loves me, so I had to try this. Right off, the orange blossom, which always smells a bit bitter on me at first. I do love the lab's almond note, and I wouldn't know it's here, so maybe green almond is a bit different? This ends up being a spa scent to me, which is fine. Clear, clean and pretty, and is very close to the skin. I will definitely use the decant, maybe in some hand cream that I'm making.

    Lovely calming lemon blend at first with a bit of resins. This is the perfect spa fragrance, and would be great on a long flight if it didn't fade so fast on me.

    Snow Bear

    Sometimes snow and ice blends can become snow dominant on me, but this one is quite lovely and well balanced. I'm getting mostly plumeria, which I love, and a touch of ice. This would be very nice as a lotion scent, and now that I think about it, this is quite close to Ava, though this one is warmer, even with the ice note. Since I have Ava, I don't need any more, though this one is quite pretty.

    Unicorn Junk

    Dusty coconut at first. I'm not really fond of the lab's coconut note because it smells pretty dusty on me. I was curious, though, so had to at least try it. After a few hours, the dustiness actually fades, and we're left with coconut, mallow, and a sweet whisp of lilac. I like it at this stage, but it takes too long to get there. I'm not a huge coconut fan, but like it on occasion when I need to have a bit of tropical in my life. I will keep the decant, it is quite pretty (but only after the dustiness fades!)

    Le Coucher de la Mariee Hair Gloss

    Not sure what the fuss is about. It's nice, but an unremarkable vanilla on me. I would say it falls between foody and non-foody, kind of airy and fades pretty fast. I'm glad to have the decant, but don't need any more.
