I was initially a little disappointed in some of them; several of them struck me as being more of holiday room spray type scents (admittedly, very fancy ones in the nicely designed aluminum bottles!). I don't find any of them "huge" or "strong" in any way comparable to most men's frags from, say, Sephora, with their overwhelming Manly Note, whatever it is (I think it's usually aquatics that really whack me); they have impact, but I would call them pretty cool about it for the most part, at least on me. Very lasting, and mostly very warm, except Grev, which I think is my least favourite, although it's interesting.
Grev and Kere are both intensely medicinal or apothecary in quality to my nose; they both have a really bitter, intense rooty note in them which reminds me of some bitter herbal roots I've tinctured in the past. They hung over the smell of my package (which smelled wonderful, I thought, like an herbalist's workshop at holiday time).
I found with all of them that it took several wears to figure out what I really loved about them, but I LIKED them all, which is very rare for me. They've got long development periods. I've ordered a full bottle of Sova (although I put some on the other day and my partner said, "Wow, smells like burning squash in here!" -- and yes, it does rather at first, and now that's all I can think of, but it evolves very interestingly). I will probably order a full bottle of Jeke as well. (I saw a few friends of mine while wearing Jeke, and M. hugged me and said, "You smell WONDERFUL, like yourself only better, like you've been walking all day in the woods! Hey, V, come here and smell her!" and I was surrounded by people sniffing me, which has never happened before. Sova, though, I kept *thinking* about, and wanting to wear it, after initially dismissing it as "quite pretty", which has also never happened before.)
There is something about Slumberhouse that really, really works for me. It may be that he doesn't like musks; I don't think musks and my skin get along most of the time, and I can't smell them properly either.
