7 Halloween Perfumes by the House of NA Perfumers:

Carpathian by Freja - Transylvanian Soil accord, Bergamot, Yuzu, Cardamom and Sandalwood and Black Honey
Margo on Oct 06, 2018
Carpathian is pretty amazing. I am not a loam or dirt fan normally but had to take a chance. Every note has an opposite to balance with. Dry Sandalwood/wet dirt, sweet honey/spicy Cardamom, heavy Bergamot/light yuzu. I would say it leans masculine. A bit powdery on dry down but in a really enticing way. Not a ton of throw so it draws others in to get a good whiff. I love yuzu and in here it is used to the perfect degree to tie the Sandalwood and Bergamot together so this isn’t citrusy but isn’t incensy either. Without adding any sugary sweetness, the honey underlies it all to anchor this to your skin. You will never want it to let go.

Amdis by Emerson - Amber, Sandalwood, Egyptian Jasmine, Bastet's Amber and Burning wood accord

Coven by Bastet - Black Ylang Ylang,  White Jasmine, Tuberose, Bastet's Amber and Crimson Red Musk

Totem 31 - French Teak, Black Pumpkin accord (oudh and pumpkin), Spices of charred Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Clove and a drop of Egyptian Musk
Melissa on Oct 15, 2018
Exotic spices, exotic Christmas oud in Dubai memories, gingerbread touches I think are also pumpkin, I do get the charred cinnamon and it is lovely and not a takeover to the scent but adds to the refinement of the spice. Impressive how expensive this feels with the spices and the clean musk. I've smelled this in the Dubai airport but not this nice. Very impressed with NA. This is my second perfume from the site and I am already a lifelong fan and will be making another purchase of this perfume in case it sells out.

POE - Sandalwood and Elderberry, Pomegranate and Guava with an undertone of Australian Sandalwood and Nag Champa Incense

Skelekin – Vanilla, Vanilla Butter Cream, Vanilla Ice Cream accord, Kobalt, Crystal, Crystalline and a nice drop of Cardamom with a touch of aged Patchouli

A Change of Heart – Copal Resin, Shiraz Wine accord, Kashmir Absolute, Indian Oudh, Leather accord and burning embers
Melissa on Oct 09, 2018
I love this from first sniff. I get leather, that kashmir note but more stunning, red wine, warm oud and smoking embers. In the background after a few hours of wear the copal begins to shine through and revive the scent again. What a concept from the name, the art and the way the perfume resonates with me. I absolutely love this and is backup worthy. If you love leather perfumes, this is something different and truly worthy of a perfume collection standout.

Martha on Oct 12, 2018
I've always been rather gun-shy with patchouli. I don't care for the 'dirty hippie' scent stereotype. BUT the way it's used in VVB is stunning! I took a chance on it because elsewhere it's rated high and this is the last year it will be available. The patchouli is strong a the beginning but quickly falls into the background holding up the vanillas which are warm and smooth...not terribly foodie which is nice. It's earthy, sweet and spicy and now I'm kicking myself for not getting a backup bottle! hehehe...Thanks!
