diabolus
<BR><BR>
notes: A lurching, hateful, bitter scent. This is a gruesome blend of ghastly greens and blacks: vetiver, pine pitch, troll musk, black basil, clove smoke, and scorched cumin.
<BR><BR>
in the vial: This is a really cute outdoorsy scent, actually! I was expecting something really hard to sniff, with the vetiver listed as the first note …

halloweenie 2008
<BR><BR>
notes: The butchest, manliest of musks covered in well-worn leather.
<BR><BR>
in the vial: The musks are strangely aquatic and light! It smells green with a hint of ozone. I was expecting the leather to be super strong and almostoverpowering, but it's way off in the background.

wet on skin: …

lupercalia
<BR><BR>
notes: Sake, apricot, and blonde wood.
<BR><BR>
in the vial: Soft, demure, and realistic smelling. I smell the most delicate, juicy, true-to-life, honeyed apricot flesh with light blonds woods in the background. The most predominant note is a sappy, freshly snapped green twig.
<BR><BR>
wet on skin: Still no …

Shampoo - LUSH - BIG

Jul/22/2010

no. absolutely not. I have a ton of medium-thick, pleasantly wavy hair. i got a sample pot of this in the mix and match hair sampler, and i chose it because it had a great citrus scent and was more suitable for my hair than the other choice, curly wurly. (i was terrified of its thick, oily base!) i thought that the idea of large sea salt crystals in big seemed novel and interesting, but they are …Read more

<BR><BR>
notes: White chocolate and strawberry.
<BR><BR>
in the vial: White chocolate and sweet, fruity, accurate strawberry. I was worried that either the chocolate or the strawberry would be plastic-y, but they're very pleasant. I'm getting more of a cocoa note than white …

Lupercalia 2009: Box of Chocolates (1/10/09-3/13/09)
<BR><BR>
notes: white chocolate, marshmallow, and coconut
<BR><BR>
in the vial: Eh, I don't know. There is a seriously soapy, artificial coconut note that juts out like a couple of elbows. I recognize it from other blends, but it's best utilized for its ability to blend well with floral and …

excolo
<BR><BR>
notes: a bounty of melons and grapes, strewn with the petals of the flowers of motherhood, draped with sea mosses.
<BR><BR>
in the vial: Artificial watermelon, but a bit more complicated than that. I can smell the rind and the musk of a freshly halved melon. Pretty impressive. Maybe there's some fakey grape under there …

illyria
<BR><BR>
notes: Grave dirt, bone, decay, angel's trumpet, and moldering scraps of shroud: the essence of finality.
<BR><BR>
in the vial: This smells kind of like wet floral foam, flowers, and stagnant water. Where's the dirt? When they say grave dirt, I expect loam, or mildewy fabric, or …
