Cootie

This is very very odd on me! At first it smells very clean and herb-y fresh. Then, I get a lot of apple, which sadly smells like soap on me (I can never wear apple). Then it all backs off and turns into a faint honey-ish scent, maybe a bit like the sweet sugary bits of an apple pie. The final stage ...

Dark Lady

I totally don't know how to describe this - it's slightly bitter and dry, really, and I can't discern any specific notes. It is kind of "cologne"-y. But it's also extremely sophisticated and elegant, and I love to wear it when I want to feel haughty and tough. I tend to wear a lot of warm ...

Halloween

Oh my god, this is a smoke scent I can wear without smelling like barbecue! I love this. It's sweet but smoky and dark, and something I really want to wear all fall/winter long.

Sex in Heaven (Yule 2010)

Hmm. I find this a bit thin, if that makes any sense. There's definitely coconut, and it is nice and husky, rather than sun-tan-lotion-y. The sandalwood lightens it, I think. It's pleasant, but not hugely distinctive? It does stay close to the skin. I'm not sure how much I will wear it, but it's nice.

Moonie (OAR 09)

What a lovely gentle spice blend! These never work on me - I smell like bad potpourri - but this smells naturally spicy without smelling like baked goods. It's not too sweet, resiny without being harsh. I don't get cedar, which usually turns to pencil shavings on me (though it might be a different v...

Sex Juice

Oh my god, this is amazingly good. I'm kinda surprised, because none of the The Girls Love... scents worked for me, but this honey is WONDERFUL - sweet and rich and foody but not too foody, not too rich. I smell the earth fairly strongly to start, and then it fades a bit behind the honey (I ADORE Fa...

Napoleon and Josephine (Valentines 2010)

Oh, this is so nice. (Well, if you like roses, as I do.) It's a lovely mix of roses - a little softer than The Magnificent Rose, but strong (it's managing to beat out most of the other scents I'm testing on the same arm!). I also totally agree with the three-stage analysis made above - yes, somethin...

Wow, I like this much more than I thought I would! I do get a brown sugar - a real, honest to god brown sugar, not sticky caramel (which is what most brown sugar turns into on me). And some spices I can't identify. There's a darkness to it I think comes from the wood, very smooth and rich. I don't g...

Silver Ginger (Valentines 2010)

This is gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. There's the usual amazing silver note, which blends beautifully with the fresh, almost lemon-y-ness of ginger. The ginger brightens the sweetness of the silver. It's incredibly good.

The Tisane of the Witch (Fall 2008)

Oooh, this is delicious! Sweet and warm and soft, without being overwhelming. A lovely soft cake-y scent. A definite buttery undertone. It is a bit light, so I will have to slather. It's amazing how comforting witches can be!
