Dib - delicious
Because I have to hurry up and finish testing Halloweenies before they stop selling 'em!


Halloween: New Orleans: The distinctive scent of the Mississippi at night mingling with sweet olive and Spanish moss.
In bottle: This for serious does smell like the Mississippi. Dude.
On me: Damn. Something goes terribly sharp on me. And - ack! Lemony!

Pomegranate IV: Pomegranate, cognac, red musk, cocoa, tobacco absolute, star anise, and thyme.
In bottle: I WANT TO LICK IT. Okay. Red musk/cocoa, cognac stirring up and poking through.
On me: *whimpersquirm* Red musk still = sex, yep. Cognac is strong, and so's pomegranate. Cocoa is a solid dark base, and I'm sure that's what the tobacco I'm not really getting is doing as well; not really getting the anise, but am getting the light sprinkling of thyme. Yum!

The Infernal Lover: A creamy, sensual, honeyed red musk.
In bottle: Yes red musk still = sex.
On me: Skin-warm, maybe a hint of cinnamon in the musk? Subtle sweetness underneath. Delectable.

The Forest Reverie: A sunlit ancient forest, dotted with wild roses, grape vine, and queenly lilies, clothed in swirls of opium smoke.
This was a freebie. It has death notes. I will try it anyway.
In bottle: Lilyrose fuckit I am not putting it on my skin thankyougoodbye.

I was totally disappointed by New Orleans. It was all apricot on me when I wanted oak moss.

Have you tried Salome or Greed? Two of my faves with oakmoss in them. Perversion is a big fave of mine with oakmoss as well. I get a lot of comments when I wear it and it's always fun to tell people its name. :>

My favorite oakmoss is Bad Luck Woman Blues. So delicious.

New Orleans was just ok on me, but awesome in the bottle, so I'm getting the atmosphere spray!

Did you have to shake the crap out of Pom IV to get it to mix? It goes through a few phases on me, and the middle one is kinda medicinal. Not sure what to blame there. The first and last are good, though.

Red musk always smells like chocolate mint ice cream on me.
