Hello to new reader exposit!
Doing surprisingly well, considering my activity level this week. Got a lot of sleep last night - went to bed early after feeling very Not Right at dinner.
Spending today with yunatwilight. :) Checking out that new yoga place and getting some organization done. Also probably watching a bunch of anime, cuz that's how we roll. :)
My schedule is pretty locked up for the rest of the week. *sigh*
Tycho, Kepler, and Newton, oh my!
Buck Moon: This Full Moon marks the time of the year when the new antlers of buck deer emerge from their foreheads, coated in soft velvet. This is a time of masculine vigor, thunder, balmy nights, glorious sunlight and hot winds. Buck Moon is an animalistic, deep scent: an amplification of one’s natural musk coupled with forest herbs, a hint of clear, warm evening air and a crystalline spark of lunar oil.
In bottle: Warm and clear.
On me: The musk here is faint, with the clarity being the topnote. This does not strike me as very masculine or animalistic. It's too light and pretty.
Monsterbait: Closet: Bourbon blackberry buttercream over red velvet cake.
In bottle: Cake cake cake! Also? Cake.
On me: Cake. Blackberry cake. Weird. The cake note isn't going plastic yet...
R'lyeh: Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn. The sunken city of the Great God Cthulhu. A hellishly dark aquatic scent, evocative of fathomless oceanic deeps, the mysteries of madness buried under crushing black waters, and the brooding eternal evil that lies beneath the waves.
In bottle: Dark aquatic.
On me: Chemical. Blech.
Ladon: The hundred-headed dragon that guards the garden of the Hesperides: dragon’s blood resin, golden apple, apple blossom, white musk and hyacinth.
In bottle: Hey, apples! Mounds of apples.
On me: Big green apples and a touch of white musk.
