    No. I have 2 of them already in full size and I think I may have samples of the others. I haven't gotten around to checking though. Overwhelmed. My Summer Collection samples arrived and I tested one and promptly developed a stuffy nose and could smell nothing for a few days. What misery. Things are working a little better today so I may be able to at least test out some more on my arm.

    Pour Some Sugar On Me: White peach, raspberry syrup, citrus flower, sweet mango, cotton candy, pink lipstick

    Definitely the sweet and lighter fuzzy peach notes upon first sniff with floral notes. I get more of the Teisseire French raspberry syrup notes than a natural one. Eventually the peach notes give way to the mango, more of a dried mango than fresh. I didn't get any cotton candy or pink lipstick accords. Sadly this perfume disappeared within an hour and I had to reapply several times during the day. I understand this may be because it's an oil based rather than the parfume variety.

    Time After Time: watermelon lipgloss, peony blossom, new roller skates, vanilla malt, sugar, musk

    This is definitely a three act perfume: Heavy watermelon lipsmackers or jolly rancher notes in the opening, peony and musk in the second act, and a tinge of leather and vanilla for the final act. Had a tendency to get a bit soapy on my skin after a bit, but I enjoyed the notes in this one, even the bright pink candied watermelon notes!

    Both of these are well suited for a younger audience, or at least a young at heart. I almost expect to see these notes in a body spray or something I'd find in a Bath & Body works hand lotion (which I would definitely buy in the Time After Time scent). I really like them both but the short scent life on my skin has given me pause.

    Thanks for these wonderful reviews. You present such great impressions. I've started trying the Spring 2 collection. My impressions so far:

    E LUCEVAN LE STELLE -Dark earth, night gardenia, starlit cobblestone, ambergris, galbanum, tree moss

    Earthy and floral opening. Then some green notes enter. It's bright green but not as sharp as some galbanum. There is some moss there to soften it, too. Something almost damp here like algae on a pond. The moss and musk grows as time passes becoming more dense and potent. Reminds me of a cave. I'd describe it as almost Slumberhouse-like except it lacks the heavy resinous quality that is the signature of many Slumberhouse fragrances. E LUCEVAN LE STELLE was interesting, and I liked it, but definitely a private versus public kind of scent for me. I can't see wearing it out.

    ENFANT TERRIBLE - Apricot, papaya, honeysuckle blossom, clover honey, blond woods

    Strong natural honey and honeysuckle notes. She does that accord very well. Modest tropical fruits, very pleasant. Is this soapy? Perhaps a bit yes, but it's balanced by slightly spicy woods in the background. It's a friendly, easy scent. Sweet but not horrendously sweet. The drydown is a natural honied floral. I'd say overall more feminine than masculine.

    It did. I had to order Spring 2 separately and then I messed up my address so she resent then together.

    Yes! I just got that email. 30% discount for subscribers is quite excellent. I finished off my Spring 2 samples so that I can move on to Summer now. My last spring notes are these:

    HABANERA - Aldehydes, guava, bergamot flower, water hyacinth, sparkling jasmine, wild clover

    Refreshing! It's like a floral guava champagne with a little honey.


    MEIN HERR MARQUIS - Violet macarons, silk tulle, pearlescent powder, orris root, heliotrope

    Floral bread in the opening. Quite unique. Wow, this is addictive. Warm bread fresh from the oven infused with flowers.


    SERRES D'AUTEUIL - Spring cherry blossom, pink pepper, Grasse rose, hothouse ferns, warm sun, sweet heliotrope (premium)

    A very pretty, elegant and feminine scent. I get lovely cherry blossom and a subtle rose...there are other florals here as well married to something green. It becomes a bit powdery in the heart. It dropped to a skin scent within a few hours, but that may be attributed to this being an oil rather than a parfum. Longevity is average.

    I've buzzed through sampling the Summer 2019 set. They were all interesting, as they always are, but none really struck a chord with me personally enough to buy a full bottle. There is one that I'm going to let sit and try a second time, though. I always feel at a slight disadvantage testing them because she provides extraits/oils when I would end up buying the parfum version if I like one...which inevitably has stronger projection and silage. Since these are closer to the skin, I find it harder to distinguish some of the notes.

    SUMMER 2019 COLLECTION

    BAD REPUTATION
    Rolling paper, cannabis, cherry cola, worn leather jacket, torn magazine pages

    Well named, this smells like Joan Jett in her prime. It's artificial cherry spilled on a glossy leather jacket. I know cannabis, and I don't smell it here...more like tar, fresh road tar. It was quirky, but I would imagine the parfum might be more distinct.

    CRUEL SUMMER
    Beach rock, hot sand, palm fronds, sunblock, salt, rum

    Initial sniff is like banana sunscreen. There’s a bit of something alcoholic in here like a piña colada, but I don’t really get rum particularly. Projection and longevity are modest. The drydown is a bit fruity.

    POUR SOME SUGAR ON ME
    White peach, raspberry syrup, citrus flowers, sweet mango, cotton candy, pink lipstick

    Holy cow. Claire is not one to stereotype herself. When she goes for it, she goes for it. Talk about soapy, this is like the ultimate kid's liquid bath soap. It's sweet as heck and mega-fruity. I do recognize peach, raspberry, mango and something citrus. Impressive distinct accords despite being so over-the-top ridiculous. I'll buy cotton candy for the sweetness. This seems like something more suited to tween girls although the Def Leppard reference takes me back to high school for sure.

    TIME AFTER TIME
    Watermelon lipgloss, peony blossom, new roller skates, vanilla malt, sugar musk

    Watermelon jolly rancher against a sweet floral backdrop. There is a touch of clean-skin musk and something like malty vanilla or like burnt creme brulee crust. The drydown takes off the most exaggerated fruit notes and leaves something quite pleasant behind...a fruity floral musk that's not overly sweet. I like this better than POUR SOME SUGAR ON ME, but it's still too feminine for my taste.

    SHOUT AT THE DEVIL
    Smeared makeup, cocaine, hairspray, fog machine, nag champa

    Surprisingly low key for a Motley Crue reference. Maybe this one needs to sit longer. I do get a sort of patchouli hippie headshop vibe. Something almost cool and balsamic. But it's all soft. I think this will work better as a parfum. The nag champa doesn't seem to fit Motley Crue, more like Phish or Grateful Dead.

    YOUTH GONE WILD
    New vinyl records, warm night air, polished arcade wood, hot asphalt, burned rubber

    Ok wow. This does open like a freshly pressed vinyl record. A little bit of rubber. She really captures the vibe of this one in her description. In an amusing reversal, where many fragrance note pyramids lists "oud" but then smell like rubber, this description lists burned rubber and polished wood that to me actually smells like oud. The Zoo wishes it could be this avant-garde yet still likable. Strangely, I did like it just not quite enough to buy a full bottle.

    Sorry, your full quote is coming out funny so I cut most of it out.

    I enjoyed your thoughts. Funny though, my initial thoughts were that Time After Time read more youthful to me than Pour Some Sugar Over It. I think it was that strong Watermelon note but I want to try all of them again.

    Thanks, Iced! I'm going to try a couple of them a second time after they sit a little longer too.

    This was the one I was most curious about - sampled it tonight. The comparison to a synthetic oud note is spot on. Although I was born in 1986 and missed the vinyl hey day, I used to collect records and know the smell of old vinyl, if not brand new. I definitely recognized it here though, along with a very strong rubber note - somewhere between a tire and the inside of a Halloween mask. Surprisingly wearable for being composed of such non-standard notes. There's something a bit sweet and powdery in it that keeps the rubber/vinyl elements from becoming too harsh. Not sure if I'd buy a full bottle, but I'm definitely enjoying it.

    Looking forward to sampling the others from my inherited Spring 2 and Summer sets. My only first impressions otherwise are that Pour Some Sugar On Me smells exactly like a fruity energy drink to me - like a Monster mixed with Jolly Rancher. Haven't given it a full wearing yet though.

    Tried out E Lucevan Le Stelle and Cruel Summer today. Both very nice.

    E Lucevan Le Stelle reminded me a bit of Rogue's Mousse Illuminee - a nice, cool green scent with a touch of florals. If this fragrance were a color, it would be a turquoise or mint green. It's green in a dewy grass or leafy way, not too strongly herbal or resinous. The dry down was a bit more floral and soft. This is probably my favorite of the samples and most likely to be full bottle worthy.

    Cruel Summer was more of a wild card - was worried about the beach smell because I don't particularly like coconut or pina colada type scents. This has a hyperrealistic sunscreen/tanning lotion note, but it's not too heavy or cloying. I saw another reviewer call this a "green" fragrance which was surprising to me given the notes, but the "palm frond" in the pyramid isn't merely suggestive; it does have a green, frond-like smell; like if you snapped a palm frond or a thin tree branch and smelled the still-greenish wood inside. It's a bit more of a novelty with the sunscreen note, but I liked it much more than I expected.

    Glad you're enjoying my notes!

    I'm wearing Shout at the Devil today, and I really like it so far. Smelling straight from the tester it was a little strong on makeup and nag champa, but I love what this is turning into on skin. For its name and notes, this is a surprisingly subdued, classy scent. It reminds me a lot of Ermenegildo Zegna's Peruvian Ambrette, which in turn reminds me of a brand new suit, or a new car interior. I don't think "leather jacket" was one of the notes on this one, but I actually do get some fresh, new leather from this. I think it might be whatever the "fog machine" accord is made up of. The nag champa is not too strong or cloying, as it can be in real life, and adds a nice sweet, spicy undertone. Having never tried cocaine in real life I can't attest to the accuracy there, although I do see similarities between this and Tuscan Leather, which also supposedly has that note. All in all, I was not expecting to like this one as more than a novelty, but I actually am really enjoying it.

    We'll have a lot more fun surprises & details to share later this week, but for now, let's meet the Anniversary lineup:

    I WANNA BE AN AIRBORNE RANGER! (The Breakfast Club, 1985) - Breakfast cereal, melted marshmallow, strong coffee, library books, denim jacket, teen angst

    MAY I ADMIRE YOU AGAIN TODAY? (Pretty In Pink, 1986) - Pink petals, pale amber, soft violet leaf, sparkling tuberose, candied ginger, strong lips

    SAVE FERRIS (Ferris Bueller's Day Off, 1986) - Funnel cakes & lemonade from Wrigley field, salted pretzels, bright blue skies, cool Lake Michigan breeze, Bueller… Bueller…

    SOMETIMES YOU JUST GOTTA SAY W.T.F. (Risky Business, 1983) - Aged whisky with a splash of diet Coke, dark amber, tonka, damp pier wood, cold lake water, Time of your life, huh kid?

    WHAT'S YOUR DAMAGE? (Heathers, 1988) - Gunsmoke, meadow grass, croquet mallet, crumbled brick, red slushie, a clean slate

    I'm particularly interested in this one. Just tried CdG Amazingreen yesterday which is supposed to also be a green/gunpowder fragrance, but I didn't get much gunpowder. Sixteen92's offerings seem bold enough that I bet the gunpowder will be discernible one way or another. Look forward to hearing other peoples' thoughts on that one!

    Wow. Thanks for the heads up. Some of them sound fantastic, but I'm disappointed she won't be doing parfum versions.

    Well! Now my wish has been granted, although not for this same collection. SIXTEEN92 just released sample sets for two groups of her PARFUMS. Info as follows:

    At long last, parfum discovery sets have arrived!

    We've curated two collections of best-selling parfum extraits from our core catalog, each containing seven featured fragrances and one "wild card" surprise.

    Your discovery set will include a voucher code redeemable for $10 off your purchase of a full-sized (30ml) fragrance from our Parfum catalog.

    + One WILD CARD! (This one could be another general catalog fragrance that we think you'll love, something from the current seasonal collection, or maybe even a limited edition surprise).

    I'm kind of bummed that the Anniversary is upon us. I usually go crazy for this collection but I just can't this time around. The special anniversary fragrance is usually one of my favorites. I would say I would just close my eyes and not look but I probably will have to get something just to get that one. The sample set is a nice deal. I haven't tried much from the regular line.

    SUMMER PART 2 Collection
    Coinciding with the Anniversary event this year, enjoy a reissue of some of some greatest hits from Summers past.
    These six fragrances will be available July 12 through approximately late August in perfume oil extrait (6ml, 10ml, samples, and discovery sets); parfum; and a limited stock of hair care and linen mists (hair care and linen mists may not be able to be restocked after Anniversary weekend)

    Summer 2018 Reissues:
    THE BOTTLING ROOM - Sterile glass, electricity, copper, hot light bulbs, lab-grown flowers, synthetic greenery (premium)
    IT'S HISTORY. IT'S POETRY. - Tobacco, whisky, polished wood, typewriter ink, city sidewalks, carousel lights in the rain
    ONLY CHILDREN WEEP - Sweet tea, azalea, red clay, rhubarb, dry wood, cement

    Greatest Hits:
    BELLS FOR HER (Summer 2016) - Sweet basil, dandelion, star jasmine, green vines, mandarin, ozone, green tea, crushed mint
    BOARDWALK (originally a Summer 2015 limited edition - this was a very popular request so it's back with Summer part 2 this year!) - Coconut pulp, coconut milk, Coppertone, sand, sea breeze, driftwood, melted vanilla ice cream cone, sticky cotton candy
    MOIRAI (Summer 2017) - Black fig, black and red tea leaves, ginger root, coconut milk, papyrus


    I also noticed that the Anniversary Sale has proceeds going towards Planned Parenthood and RAICES. I personally don't support PP and I don't know anything about RAICES. I'd rather see donations to St. Jude's or the like. So this is butting up against my own ethics and I may have to take a hard pass on this one.

    I admire you taking a stand for your ethics! Way to go! I personally don't support PP and never will in good conscience.

    This one sounds very interesting - anyone tried it before, thoughts? Sounds somewhat similar to Odeur 71 from CdG.

    Basenotes has a general policy to avoid politics, since it can be highly contentious, but since it came up in the context of a house supporting organizations via proceeds, perhaps the site won't censor these comments. My ethics as opposed to yours insists that I do support Planned Parenthood. Thanks for highlighting this contribution so that those who do want to support it can be a part. I think I'll go make a donation directly because I don't feel up to a blindbuy at the moment. That said, if anyone is tempted I can assure you that Moirai from this set is amazing. I love it and anyone who likes tea accords will probably enjoy that one. The other cause she is supporting is described below:

    RAICES The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families and refugees in Central and South Texas. RAICES is the largest immigration non-profit in Texas with offices in Austin, Corpus, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio.

    I've never tried THE BOTTLING ROOM, Jk...it's definitely intriguing. I have The Smell of Weather Turning from Gorilla Perfumes, that I suspect is in this same family. I like it as an occasional wear...very quirky.

    I’ve been meaning to try Sixteen 92 and it looks like now is the time: give my money to RAICES and Planned Parenthood please!
