Meet-and-swap In very brief

Acquired Elegba (coconut, tobacco and sweet, sugared rum - my first reaction was "sugarcane!"), Yemaya (melons and grapes, strewn with the petals of the flowers of motherhood, draped with sea mosses - I get ocean, without chemical "aquatic notes"), Apothecary (tea leaf with three mosses, green grass, a medley of herbal notes, and a drop of ginger and fig), Coyote (The warmth of doeskin, dry plains grasses and soft, dusty woods warmed by amber and a downy, gentle coat of deep musk), and another Lear. Fell in love with Alone - another LE (patchouli and cardamom with bright mandarin, labdanum, muguet, red sandalwood, angelica and gardenia - dude, I don't get any of that, I get forest)!

Had much fun with Cid and her man. *hugs* Must do this again soon!

Came home to the Torture King I swapped gegenschein for... and over half a bottle of Beaver Moon from solcita! *squees*

And got frimps from the person who sent the Torture King; alas, they're all scents I already know don't work on me. But hey, free, and now they're trade-bait! *adds Al-Shairan, Morocco, and Viscount de Valmont to swaplist*

Black Phoenix: Cherry cola. Dies dow to something nasty.
Delphi: Sheer unmitigated ass.
Le Serpent Que Danse: Meh. Just... meh. Generic.
Wanton: Meh. Rose?
Viscount de Valmost: Cheap drugstore cologne
Dracul: See Valmont.
Aureus: Almost not even there. Ambery.
Smut: Nice, but fades quickly
Monster Bait: Underbed: Musty Grandma's-house-ish
Enraged Bunny Musk: Chemical ew

And stuff I tried yesterday:
Gluttony: Starts off okay, goes kinda off
Gomorrah: Meh
Monster Bait: Underpants: See Gluttony
Snake Oil: nice
Snake Charmer: Nice, and much like a richer, more solid Snake Oil
Fire Eater: Meh
