    Here's another thing that's rubbing me the wrong way. I was planning on ordering 3 of the Halloween scents today, but now I want to get the several of the Friday the 13th scents as well. Do I risk the Halloween scents I want going oos while I wait for Friday to get here so I can do one order, or do I do two orders and pay for shipping twice?

    In the Halloween pre-order email she says she’s happy to combine orders, so you could place an order now and wait for it to ship with an order on Friday the 13th. Honestly, I doubt anything will sell out this early except some of the bath and body seasonal items.

    Perhaps this kind of atmospheric work does not have appeal to me.
    I notice that the scents you’ve been sampling are some of her earlier releases. Personally, I think her craftsmanship has continued to improved over the years, and is particularly noticeable in the increase in complex and atmospheric scents. I would highly suggest trying some of the releases from this year or the year before.

    That's what I get for reading the whole email. Some of the EdP's are sold out already.

    I received my bottle of MIND OVER MATTER today, and she included a free sample of Bella Lugosi's Dead, which I've never tried. The Fall scents are still not in the database unfortunately...probably take many months. Would be great if anyone else wants to also submit them.

    Shadow show: fruity-hay-malty aroma... and a definite popcorn note.
    No shadows that I can see.
    And then dwindles into more warmth with a faint petrol fume note, which disappears by 10 minutes. From there on, fruity skin scent.
    Eh. Not much more to say.

    The Book of the Beast... Vanilla fudge, cooking on the stove. Wet, parchment paper. Cold, damp cellar, after a heavy rain, where the ground water has seeped indoors, between the stones and mortar.

    Dampness continues as the vanilla becomes smoky. I'm tricked into believing I smell a cool, evening in late Fall.

    Stays linear for awhile. All "notes" merge into one thing, like a well-made, wet-style [liquid] incense. 3 stars.

    Nice! I got 6ml of Groom Lake. Very excited for this one. I love her atmospheric and industrial fragrances, so this one was an easy blind buy for me. Anyone else order it? I'll be posting my thoughts when it arrives, curious to hear from others as well!

    Hey guys and gals. I'm back from my short stint of not being allowed here. Was bummed I wasn't able to post on the 13th. I picked up bottles of Hessian of the Hollow, Vanishing Hitchhiker, and Groom Lake. I'll probably be picking up Lycanthrope next month on Friday the 13th.

    The Path of the Night

    Smells like someone placed band-aids on a tree leaking sap. Weird. Love it already! Very unusual woody thing, to start. A sinister mix of pine tar, creosote, asphalt, and medium-cade oil, all slung into one, un-cleaned, overly used science beaker. A hint of cat-urine in the background.

    Gasoline-soaked incense. Minute sweetness - man, I dig this funky ride. Arty, creative - fun for sampling. I don't think I'd wear this at a place of employment. Out in the gen-pop, perhaps - shock the tourists, so to speak.

    Boiling hot benzoin. Northern Africa desert-dry incense / frankincense. More smoked, dry wood.

    Smooths out into a blazing fireplace, campfire, or bonfire. Comfortable skank in the middle. Reminds me of late October. Smells like, how, smoke residue sticks to your clothing. Or old wool with a smoldering residue.

    Becomes linear later. Smells a bit more chemical-like. Overall, pretty god stuff. Four stars, from me!

    I finally got my sample sets after a week-long hold up by USPS. I've been testing the Fall 2019 Collection first during some down time at work... I'm sad to report I don't love them. No offense to those who do. Here are my impressions—

    Darkness Was Enough

    A sweet and floral saffron opening supported by some dim and dark resins and an earthy, musty decay. There’s a weird play between sweet and savory here—the sweetness disappears after a little bit and the spice really comes out.


    Dead Is Better

    An unfortunate pine candle opening, sweet and cold and begging to be slapped with a snowflake label and sold at the holidays. A little too cliche without adding anything new. Smells generic and only is only made more so by its run of the mill white musk dry-down.


    Losers Club

    Now this one is haunting…. As in, I think it has inhabited my body and will never leave, no matter how much I scrub it off. It starts with a buttery, caramel corn sweetness and a faint atmospheric hum. It’s weirdly sinister as it burns off, leaving a fluffy aerated sugar with a metallic glint behind. I find this perfume to be in bad taste, in a cheesy fun fair sort of way. It’s sort of enjoyable at the start, but by the end, I’ve eaten too much sugar and can’t shake the headache its left behind. Not putting this one on again… Sample, anyone?


    Mind Over Matter

    That popcorn note appears at the start here, a little less buttery and more toasted. It evolves quite quickly—after a few minutes its become an antique store potpourri, warm and heady and a little over-the-top, vaguely cinnamon and dried orange. A sharp vanilla sweetness emerges after that, with some breadiness. I expected this one to be more of a play between warm and cold, but it’s pretty even in tone—that tone being a high C. Way too screechy for me.


    Redrum

    This has a very different tone than the others in this collection, in part because it feels like the most traditional fragrance. The champagne accord is fun, although its a bit flat and could maybe use some more sparkle. There’s a clean floral thing happening somewhere in here, along with a gauzy musk and polished wood. I feel compelled to think of another Shining-referenced perfume, Bruno Fazzolari’s Room 237, and I feel like I can project a similar vinyl shower curtain note here. It’s still a little too sweet and sharp for me, though it runs a bit cooler, which I like.


    tl;dr
    Darkness Was Enough is probalby my favorite of these—certainly the most my style. It's the only one I might consider wearing out the sample of, though not enough to go beyond that. Redrum takes second place, but in the end its surprisingly generic. Who'd have thought...

    If anyone is dying to try any of these, get in touch with me. Don't think I need to keep these around.

    Falloween Greatest Hits are next. I hope to have a more positive experience....

    Appreciate your honesty, no worries. I get very different notes out of Mind Over Matter than you do, but that just shows how different everyone's olfactory experiences can be.

    Thank The Dark Lord... Dark Lord of the bakery! Mad scientist of cookies! Alchemist of treats! LOL! Mom's kitchen smells of long ago. Sweet, starchy, crunchy feel. The crushed, dried herbs underneath add an interesting twist.

    More, then stronger, cookie notes. The slightest coffee accord. Slight spice. Overall, yummy!

    Got my bottle of Groom Lake in the mail yesterday, giving it a full wearing today. This one is much more tame than I was expecting - given the note list:

    Arid scrub, creosote, empty night sky, yucca bloom, high desert air, aircraft fuel, barbed wire, dim fluorescent hum, Element 115, sanitized metal, ❚❚❚❚❚❚REDACTED❚❚❚❚❚

    I was expecting something industrial, weird, dry/herbaceous, but this is much friendlier than that. Very much so in the vein of E Lucevan le Stelle and Dead Is Better, a cool, green foresty affair. Where E Lucevan has an undertone of wet, cold pavement, and DIB has a fruity blackberry undertone, this one does have a subtle supporting element that recalls the vinyl note used in other Sixteen92 frags like Youth Gone Wild. The focus is on the green notes though, and this ends up having the effect of something like a mossy extraterrestrial chypre. Not what I was expecting, but a pleasant surprise all the same!

    Hey people, where do I start with this house? I typically favor Orientals and woods and spices. Resinous or balsamic can be great.

    I would suggest starting with the recently released parfum sample sets. There are two options...so see what might appeal to you more.

    Try a sample of Wicked, if it is available.

    I was rummaging through some samples and pulled out Last Exit for the Lost, I forgot how nice of a green apple scent this is. I don't really get anything other than the green apple, but it's juicy and succelent, gorgeous.

    I went ahead and ordered the 30ml extrait and a 7ml of Vlad Dracul, and Claire was nice enough to agree to send a sample of The Fall of the House of Usher too. Now just to wait for the obscenely long processing time haha...

    Very nice! I love LAST EXIT...the apple is fantastic in, but I do also get a fresh greenness and modest hay and wood. Not strong, but a nice complement to the apple. Vlad is great!
