So I’ve worn four of my new perfume oil samples so far, and I have to say I did a much better job choosing them this time. There are none so far I absolutely hate. 🙂
Snake Oil. It’s a nice smell. I like it, but it’s very muted. I put some on my wrists and behind my ears, and normally when I do this with perfume, I can catch whiffs of it whenever I turn my head. I couldn’t smell Snake Oil unless I sniffed my wrist. Maybe I just have to put alot more on? I don’t know, this one requires more wearing.
Lyonesse. I really quite like this one, enough so that I may consider buying a bottle, if I’m still loving it by the time my sample runs out. I don’t normally care for floral scents, but this one is mixed with some darker notes.
Blood Countess. This one is kind of odd. Fruity-floral, with incense. I have to wear it again. Not what I was expecting at all, based on the description. (Countess Bathory smelled of…fruit?)
Antikythera Mechanism. This one is the “steampunk” one, and so I was really hoping to love it. It would have been nice to wear with my steampunk costume this October. Wet and in the bottle, it’s pretty…strident. As soon as I put it on, I sneezed twice! Hmmm. It seems to be mellowing down as I type this, but it’s definitely on probation at this point!
