It's very exciting to see the wonderful suggestions from the forum put into perfume! It looks like a beautiful collection!!
I can't wait to try:
Black Annis
Dancing with the Sprites in the Fall Rain (great title, and I remember reading that suggestion, which sounded awesome to me)
Grim Reaper (I love hay!! And now to have a fall fragrance with it)
Jin
Lady Hawke
Min-Min
Ouija
Sasquatch (sounds gloriously animalic!)
Strogoi
The Flirty She-Corpse
The Scent of Night
Xuong Cuong

And I've heard so much about these, can I let Halloween go by without trying Ghost Fart, Halloween and Autumnal Equinox?

Some beautiful essences mentioned and a great assortment of ingredients! Thank you, Fabienne!

Okay, now that I've had my squee fit, oh my word soooo many look so wonderful. Autumn perfumes are pure awesome!

Wants at first pass:
Asmodeous (whimper)
Banshee (omg, yes)
Barmbrack
Black Annis (droooool)
Dancing with the Sprites (yes, yes, yes want!)
Death Apple (squeee! How cool is that?!)
Gingerwitch (but of course!)
Jin (eyes roll back in the head, yes!)
Jurogumo (I am really diggin' this peach theme and think it's going to be pretty fantastic)
Kelpie (yearning at first read)
Lady Hawke
Min-Min (despite the rose, this is calling me)
Redcap (oooooh!)
Rougarou (because every Halloween needs an unashamed foody)
Silver Pumpkin (absolutely yes!)
Spider Juice (mmmmm yes that too!)
The Flirty She-Corpse (sounds pretty interesting)
The Scent of Night (mmmmm love this idea and want it to be what I think it will be)
Zombie (yes!)

Intrigued but not sure about:
Kuchisake
Manticore
Ouija
Psychopumpkin (normally I'd be all over this, but am unsure of the spice and how it will react to my skin)
Sasquatch (oh my!)
Strigoi

I think I'm going to need a bigger boat.

Lots of tempting goodies in this collection! Unfortunately, I'm broke. I can probably find coinage for a couple bottles though. :wink:
Min-Min & Zombie look like two I must have.
If I win the lottery, these are some that may wind up in my cart:
Kuchisake-onna
Lady Hawke
Ouija maybe?
Rougarou
Sasquatch???

Death Apple and a few others caught my eye too. It's a little overwhelming.... But in a good way!!

ETA: If I didn't already have a bottle of Halloween, I'd be digging thru the couch cushions to find monies for that one too.

I can pretty much cry "SNAP!" on everything here. As the gauntlet thrower, I would (and probably will) blind buy Sasquatch. Strigoi sounds like per-fection! And Scent of Night and Xuong Cuong are also at the front of my list.

Foody fans have to be pretty happy - this is one gourmand-heavy update!

Zombie (marshmallow & oud) sounds like my holy grail too!

Other must-have's for my decant order list:

Min-Min (sandalwood, leather, patch, rose)
Autumnal Equinox (nuts, spices, rose)
Manticore (rose, cedar, grey musk, vanilla, a touch of aquatic?)

Sound interesting but may be risky:

Strigoi (maybe too masculine?)
Jurogumo (yes to vanilla musk but not big on peach)
Ouija (love rose and vanilla, but maybe too woody for me and what's black chiffon?)
Sasquatch (love all those animalic notes but nervous about "fir-like green note)
Lady Hawke (yes to tobacco & saffron, but again may be too much wood)
Dancing with Sprites in the Fall Rain (mushroom musk sounds cool but ozone is risky)

Well, kids, the self-rescuing princess here. It seems that there was a switch on the site which had been flipped inadvertently and I had to find it and fix it. The prices were showing up as $14.99 too high in each case. I could not figure it out until :bwah: all of a sudden, I did. So now the site is fixed and I am highly relieved, and I bet you are too.

I read something about Venus being in retrograde, and I poo-pooed it. I should not have poo-pooed it. It was supposed to make all things technical a nightmare for months. It did. Of course this is when I had to do a gross majority of all my technical work.

I should be grateful I am not T Mobile. Talk about being bitten by the retrograde bug!!!!

Oh, my goodness!!! This is a gorgeous collection!!! A Vietnamese tree spirit (swoon from Hanoi!)!!

No, Venus already went direct and does not cause that sort of chaos. It is Mercury in retrograde. But I am sure that is what you meant. You are just so full of indulging love, that you fixated on dear Venus.

And now off to enjoy the descriptions.... :chase:

WEll, I was making Dancing With The Sprites and I was not pleased with one "accent" it had. Unfortunately I ran out of one ingredient and have that on order (express shipping) so I can make the blend the way I intended it to smell. That is going to drag out the shipping times of those first orders by a couple of days. Sorry about that but if it isn't the way I want it, I won't make it. Artist's prerogative and all that.

However, I am going to be sending out the rest of your orders and when I get Dancing made I will be sending it to you ASAP. I will be sending you your freebies with the main shipment so you can get all the stuff you are craving ASAP.
