rec'd today, all listed below, PLUS:

MOON ROSE
A crisp, pale, almost translucent rose dusted by moonflower and
midnight dew.

[my first impression: too sweet & girly for me. I bet my sister H. would like it.]


and Old Madrid. Which, I think Is MADRID:

MADRID
Swarthy and vibrant! An elegant, full-bodied scent that ignites all
the darkest passions. Bold red wine, mimosa, and a trickle of clove.

[it smells like candy at first, but then you can smell the wine &
clove. kind of interesting?]
===================
> BLOOD AMBER -- Slivers of warm, pulsating blood forever
crystallized
> in golden amber resin.

[some sort of cleaning fluid, interesting color, though]

>
> BLOOD KISS -- Lush, creamy vanilla and the honey of the sweetest
kiss
> smeared with the vital throb of husky clove, swollen red cherries,
> but darkened with the vampiric sensuality
> of vetiver, soporific poppy and blood red wine, and a skin-light
> pulse of feral musk.

[cherry-vanilla]

>
> LEX TALIONIS -- The law of retaliation and perfect reciprocity: an
> eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, an arm for an arm, a life for
a
> life. The essence of blunt justice: dark myrrh, vetiver, cardamom,
> violet, black pepper, sage, cedarwood and black patchouli with a
> clarion note of sharp white grapefruit.

[more cleaning fluid, slightly pepper ish]


>
> HELL'S BELLE -- Sweet, smoky and sensually wicked. A thick, steamy
> scent, truly sinister in its voluptuous sexuality. The perfume of a
> demon's favored consort, or of the devil herself. Oleander with
> wet, sweet mandarin, lush magnolia, a rush of deep musk and a touch
> of spice.

[cedar & orange]

>
> MATA HARI-- A renowned exotic dancer and courtesan, possessed of
> aristocratic elegance, matchless charm, an iron will and a streak
of
> fearlessness. The actual events of her life have met with much
> speculation, and to this day it is unclear whether or not she was
> truly a German spy. Despite shaky evidence of her guilt, she was
> tried for espionage by a closed court-martial and was executed by a
> French firing squad in 1917. Her scent is striking and bold with a
> delicate yet dark undertone: five roses with soft jasmine, warmed
by
> vanilla, fig, tonka bean and mahogany, spiced with a drop of coffee
> bean.

[tuberose for sure. not much else.]


> PERVERSION -- The perfect scent to wear to your next bondage ball,
> dungeon adventure or sojourn to your favorite pleasure dome. Smoky
> rum and black tobacco with a whisper of steamy leather with a
splash
> of crystalline chardonnay, layered over a sensual, sweet, and
> deceptively magnetic base of tonka.

[smells like vanilla, and rum a little]

good stuff

Placed an order with Black Phoenix Alchemy lab for samples:

BLOOD AMBER -- Slivers of warm, pulsating blood forever crystallized
in golden amber resin.

BLOOD KISS -- Lush, creamy vanilla and the honey of the sweetest kiss
smeared with the vital throb of husky clove, swollen red cherries,
but darkened with the vampiric sensuality
of vetiver, soporific poppy and blood red wine, and a skin-light
pulse of feral musk.

LEX TALIONIS -- The law of retaliation and perfect reciprocity: an
eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, an arm for an arm, a life for a
life. The essence of blunt justice: dark myrrh, vetiver, cardamom,
violet, black pepper, sage, cedarwood and black patchouli with a
clarion note of sharp white grapefruit.

HELL'S BELLE -- Sweet, smoky and sensually wicked. A thick, steamy
scent, truly sinister in its voluptuous sexuality. The perfume of a
demon's favored consort, or of the devil herself. Oleander with
wet, sweet mandarin, lush magnolia, a rush of deep musk and a touch
of spice.

MATA HARI-- A renowned exotic dancer and courtesan, possessed of
aristocratic elegance, matchless charm, an iron will and a streak of
fearlessness. The actual events of her life have met with much
speculation, and to this day it is unclear whether or not she was
truly a German spy. Despite shaky evidence of her guilt, she was
tried for espionage by a closed court-martial and was executed by a
French firing squad in 1917. Her scent is striking and bold with a
delicate yet dark undertone: five roses with soft jasmine, warmed by
vanilla, fig, tonka bean and mahogany, spiced with a drop of coffee
bean.

PERVERSION -- The perfect scent to wear to your next bondage ball,
dungeon adventure or sojourn to your favorite pleasure dome. Smoky
rum and black tobacco with a whisper of steamy leather with a splash
of crystalline chardonnay, layered over a sensual, sweet, and
deceptively magnetic base of tonka.
