Yesterday sucked. Today's okay so far.
Lakes on Titan!
Snake Oil: By far, our most popular scent! Magnetic, mysterious, and exceedingly sexual in nature. A blend of exotic Indonesian oils sugared with vanilla.
In bottle: Vanilla and something indefinable.
On me: Thick and sweet goes to thick and not-sweet, tinge of vanilla... my nose is not trained enough to figure out what-all else is in here! I'm not in love, but I hear it's better aged, so I'll be holding onto it.
Bewitched: Deep, luscious green and berry scents that evoke images of woodland witchcraft and the raw power of nature: blackberry, sage, green tea, wild berries and dark musk.
In bottle: Yep, berry and green! Feels sharper than sage, though.
On me: Mmmm, berry. Real berries, not Strawberry-Shortcake's-friend. Dude, I gave Elayna Strawberry Shortcake dolls purchased when I was a kid? And they *still* have that rank fake-fruit smell. That endures. The apricot in Depraved smells like that. *This* smells like real dew-fresh fruit. *cues up "Berry-Picking Time" by Great Big Sea*
Kali: This perfume is a blend of the sacred blooms of cassia, hibiscus, musk rose, Himalayan wild tulip, lotus and osmanthus swirled with offertory dark chocolate, red wine, tobacco, balsam and honey.
In bottle: Balsam, slight floral (cassia?), slight honey.
On me: The honey rises. I don't think honey when I think Kali; I'm surprised there's no blood note in this! Honey and balsam, and florals twining in the distance, not enough to bug me. Florals rising higher, but no chemical-ew-rose. I'm not getting the tobacco, chocolate, or wine yet, which makes me sad; I want an oil with just those and the balsam and honey, please! Hm. I wonder how this would be layered with Centzon Totochtin, which is all red-wine-truffle on me? I like this, but it does not scream death and rebirth to me. Jai ma, Kali ma... the honey's back. I love their honey. This is a morpher...
Black Phoenix: Our signature oil. A dark, languid scent. Promotes hedonistic tendencies and extreme self-love. You won't stop kissing mirrors for a month.
In bottle: Cherry like whoa.
On me: Cherry, and whatever it is that goes plasticky on me. And... almond. *frown*
wytchchyld's already claimed this one. The rest are keepers! *sniffs self obsessively*
I got my first-ever click-and-ship notification last night. Hungry Ghost Moon and my 10ml of Kathmandu are on their way! *dances*
