Sharp, acrid and sour. A completly bitter herbal blend.

Girlie, sweet, like a strawberry shortcake lipsmacker. Every now and again I crave something like this. I think it would be fabulous on a hot summer day having a cold glass of lemonade.

Fragrant vanilla orchid with a drop of lady-like perfume. Black Opal reminds me a bit of Antique Lace. It's a pretty scent.
What a warm, woodsy scent. To me, Intrigue is slightly reminiscent of an old furniture store. And then there's that bit of fruit...

Ah, to my sniffer this is a spicy, tropical goodness. Milky and some clove lingering there. Yum!
To me this is a milky, sugared ginger. There's a drop of sandalwood. It's got a spicy kick with something resinous lying underneath.
Unfortunately on my skin all I can smell is rancid watermelon.
On my skin Kuang Shi appears as neroli blossom - how lovely! Perhaps with a bit of fresh basil and amayris. I love it!

This blend is pineapple, spring blossom goodness! It's sweet and tropical and sugar laced. Quite delicious and fresh.
Burial is just like the name implies - earth, moss, pine and dirt. Too overwhelming for myself. I'd enjoy it as a candle.
This does NOT live up to the hype or 23$ price tag. It doesn't hold me lash curl, clumps and dryes on the lashes too fast for me to comb them, and is heavily fragranced. The only thing I did like was the oversized brush with multi-bristles and the fact that you don't have to scrape off the excess becaused the tube does that for you. Overall, what a waste.
Ahhhh, Ophelia is a sharp affront to my nasal passages! Slightly bitter and green, it reminds me a bit of bic pen ink - oddly.
Fragrances -Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab - Les Bijoux

Oh, I am so in love with Les Bijoux! I thought I might like it because of all of the delicious notes listed, but I am blow away... Les Bijoux is the perfect blend of blossoms, fruits, and musks. Sexy and soft, a cozy, warm fragrance.
This is buttery almonds to my nose. Too sugary and creamy. It smells so different in the imp and then on my skin. Slowly some gentle spices creep out. I'm not in love, but it's ok
What a beautiful, green, lush and resinous rose! I'm usually not one for rosey scents, but the moss and incense loosen the rose up a bit and add a charming touch. This scent is definately a unisex one, and I feel that it would be ever so sexy on a man. Yum!
