Hello to new reader cbpotts!
Somewhat better. I shall exercise (with) caution.
Interesting article by Warren Ellis on the future of web publishing... Micah, read this one!
Up too late online and posting and whatnot, is why I'm getting a late start today. Had a too-long nap. You should go back and read stuff, though. *nod*
String Theory - Not Dead Yet!
Two things first:
1. When my C13 exclusives get here, I'll be holding a Meet & Sniff so everyone Boston-local-ish gets a chance to try them out.
2. Just updated my swap/sale page... Agony of Loss and Schwarzer Mond bottles, among others. Plenty of LE decants and GC imps, and stuff from other e-tailers. :)
On to the reviews...
Mania: Screeching white musk collides with a howl of red musk, with sharp white grapefruit and pale strawberry leaf.
In bottle: Mostly the strawberry leaf. Warm.
On me: Strawberry, a flash of red musk, and something... plastic. Darn. :( But wait! The plastic recedes, and I have a nice throw of strawberry going on.
Devil's Claw: A yellow-bright and smoky brown-black scent, horned, pronged and strange.
In bottle: Flash of yellow, then.... yes, brown-black and sweet, like something gone slightly bad.
On me: Strong. Burnt. Unpleasant.
Greed: Base and earthy, yet glittering with golden notes: patchouli, heliotrope, copal and oakmoss.
In bottle: The copal stomps on everything else. Poor stomped oakmoss!
On me: Hm. Barely there. Patchouli and copal, not much heliotrope, *no* oakmoss. :(
