Happy (belated) birthday, Stellamaris! What a great way to celebrate!

I am impatiently awaiting all the reviews, and yet going crazy each time one comes in because the decant order hasn't shipped yet. Also going crazy because I didn't include Barmbrack and I suspect a full bottle of that will make its way into my cart very soon.

Thank you stellamaris! And happy birthday too :grin:

Now wondering if I should blind buy a bottle...

Mustering the courage to try "Dancing With the Sprites". Sniffing out of the bottle, I'm getting a mustard-like note which makes me a bit nervous...maybe I'll let it sit a bit.

I know they will be up for abit but I am having fun trying to predict to myself which ones will make permanent. My bets are on Zombie and Amodeus, not sure about the third. Honestly I will eat a hat if Zombie does not make it (probably also be very sad too).

Side note, my decants are on their way wooo! :batflap:

Interesting. I had to pull out my bottle to give it a sniff, and I am wondering if what you are smelling is the fall leaves note. It's pretty dominant at first, but the way this one snuggles down on the skin is pretty fantastic. It does shift around a bit though, so if you don't have the time to wait for that to happen, I definitely suggest finding a day when you can do so and get all the nuances before it settles down.
If you can't be a success, be a spectacular failure!

My decants arrived yesterday! Big excitement! I just posted four reviews on the review site and wanted to add that I tried Autumnal Equinox and smelled a very realistic fresh and juicy apple fragrance, rounded out with some spices and a slight resiny aspect. I gave that to my neighbor as a birthday gift so I will not be doing a full review of it, but wanted to share my initial impressions. Ghost Fart smelled rather ozony and misty to me, perhaps some vanilla and grey or skin musk, but it was hard to pin down, and such a great name!

Happy Halloween, everyone! :catpump:

Goodness, the survey is up already and I have no idea what to vote for, not being able to smell these lovelies. I usually go by notes and reviews, so need to do my homework this weekend. I am leaning towards Min Min with three sandals and leather, as well as Zombie (oude and vanilla) and probably Xuong Cuong out if national loyalty for my adopted country...Hmmmm.....

I don't know what to vote for either! What's everyone's favorites so far?

I am loving Zombie and Death Apple so much. Silver Pumpkin wants me to make it permanent just on the silver principle (I adore the silver note, just adore it in everything), though it does fade to a little mustiness on my skin. But I feel like that's no reason I should penalize it for everyone! :D

Gingerwitch and Banshee are lovely things as well.

I ended up voting for Jin, Lady Hawke and St. Expedite. The first two I really love; the third I haven't tried but the reviews sound amazing.

I think I'll be happy with however the results turn out - I liked everything I tried, and all the others sound really darn good as well :grin:

Did anyone get Gingerwitch? I'm wondering if it's anything like Gingerbread Whorehouse which I LOVE, but I'm nervous about the almond. I wish I had gotten a decant:(
