I see more than a few I'd like to try. I wonder if I can still add these to my Christmas wishlist...

MY ORDER IS IN!

I got my 5ml vial of White Rabbit, the six imps I ordered, and FOUR bonus imps!

I know a bunch of you have now placed orders or are thinking about placing an order, so I took some pics for you:

The entire haul, with penny for size reference:


The six along the top row are the imps I ordered, the four along the bottom are the random freebies that were sent.


Close-up of the vial. It's REALLY tiny and adorable.


I snorfled every scent in its imp today, and I don't dislike any of them in the vials (except maaaaybe Grave-Pig, I'm reserving judgement), so I'll wear an oil every day and see how it wears, and share it here!

Today's scent is GALVANIC GOGGLES (from the Steamworks collection)

Description: Metallic notes with Indian musk, tobacco flower, and African balsam.

Imp nose: Metal. Sharp metal. Hints of tobacco and musk, for sure.

Wet on skin: More evenly balanced metal and tobacco.

Dry on skin: Tobacco and balsam. I smell like a cigar shop. *EDIT* Scratch that - I smell the musk now, just a hint. I now smell like an Indian smoke shop.

Hokay,

Today's scent is DRAGON'S MILK (from the Ars Draconis collection. Renee, you were interested in this one!)

Description: A truly fae nectar! Dragon's blood resin and honeyed vanilla.

Imp nose: OooooOOOOOooooohhh. I love the scent of Dragon's Blood resin (I keep some no-flame incense of it in my bedroom), and the mixture with honeyed vanilla is apparant. Sweet and musky. mmm.

Wet on skin: Hmm. The Dragon's Blood is less apparant, and the vanilla is going a little stale...

Dry on skin: ... Sickly sweet. It almost smells as if a lychee has gone rotten. No sign of Dragon's Blood. Unfortunate... I really like the smell of this one in-vial. I bet it would smell amazing on someone else, unfortunately my body's alchemy does not mesh with it.

I never did, until I got into perfume oils. They're fascinating. So much variety, and they literally smell different on -everyone-. The scent becomes yours.

Allie, I hope the Dragon's Milk smells better on me! I was really excited about that one. Keep it up! I can't wait 'til mine gets here.

I don't wear perfume, and I had to buy some of this stuff.

I really want to try those out as well.

Are they overwhelmingly strong? I have asthma and allergies, and that's my one hesitation.

They're a bit strong while freshly wet on your skin, which is only about 10-15 minutes. Once dry, they're much more mellow. I put a tiny dab on both inner elbows and behind my earlobes, and it's just the right amount so you can smell it when near to me, but not overwhelmingly so.

Since they're composed of essential oils and natural ingredients, they are MUCH kinder on the nose than any standard market perfumes, which are at max 10% perfume oils and 90% chemical gross. x__x Much harder on the lungs, IMO. My roomie loves his chemical cologne sprays and they make me wheeze. Not perfume oils.

You could always order an imp or two just to try, and not be out much $$.
