Re: Min-Min (Ghost Lights)

out of the vial this is very leathery. On initial application on me it is kinda sweet and still leathery eventually it starts to get woody. At some stage it kind of smells like…playdough? So weird. And in the final stage I get something really nice. It is hard to explain but I geuss my attempt would...

Re: Halloween

Oh man this is soo good! In the vial it is a very strong pumpkin but the moment it hits my skin, boom! smokey, spicey goodness. For just a little bit it reminds of a burning pumpkin, you know when a candle had been inside it too long and it gets too hot. This sweet but not too sweet, and that distan...

Re: The Hunt for a Men's Scent, aka Needle in a Haystack

That sounds really good Warriortwo! Now I want to go shopping for men's fragrances... Funny story, I was at a little craft market with my mother and partner and there was a couple who made handmade soaps. I picked up one called "timber", it had cedar and probably some other wood notes. It ...

Re: Jin (evil spirit from the U.A.E.)

I really like this one! In the vial it actually has a caramel kind of smell that nearly scared me off. On inital application a powderinees emerges which is normally a deal breaker for me but I didnt mind this so much. The powdery smell eventually gives way to a lovely peach and tabacco combo with so...

Re: Redcap

In the vial with a sweet with a perfumey, kind of reminds me of cootie at some point . From It I basically just get "perfumey fruit". It is nice, but maybe not my thing. I was hoping for more patchouli. I will come back to it again and see if aging helps at all.

Re: Dancing With The Sprites In The Fall Rain

in the vial- bitter dry leaves, the same opening note of Dies Irae. Woah! On inital application I think I get the mushroom musk as a sharp weird earthiness. Then there is the aquatic, sharp and kind of soapy. Huh this is a really weird one on me. This stays soapy on me but also I continue to get the...

Re: The Flirty She-Corpse

I am being brave an trying something with a floral note! In the vial this is very citrusy with a fair bit of jasmine too. Upon application this goes rather chypre-like on me and then gradually the cedar starts to dominate but there is something else with it that keeps it from going full-blown cedar ...

Re: Strigoi (The Original Dracula)

Since Fabienne's last vampire themed perfume has been my all time favorite I had to try this one too :D Out of the vial, this definitely smells masculine and it makes me happy. Once applied I get the lemon, a subtle pepperiness and perhaps some hawthorn (which I think I am starting to learn to detec...

Re: Kelpie

In the vial I get pumpkins and apples. In the wet phase the apples become abit stronger and occassionally I think i get a nice bright peach but I mostly just smell pumpkin and on the dry down it just stays pumpkin on me. Darn. I was hopping for a fruity patchouli similar to Bacchante but sadly I don...

Re: Rougarou (The Cajun Werewolf)

Oh thanks! I don't usually go for foody, but I love candy corn and I'd love to have the perfect candy corn scent. hmm I must admit it has been a long time since I have had candy corn but it's not what it smells like to me. It is nice though and will make you hungry for candy. Haha. Side note, I was...
