Niki on Oct 17, 2019

This was an instant must have for me last year, and giving it a year to age has only improved it. I loved it immediately. Juicy, bright, sugared red musk, rich patchouli, and the black tea in the background. I just adore it, and I crave it often - so it's gotten a lot of wear for me! I'm a big fan of NA's patchouli, so I love all of my Bats, but this - along with this year's Vampire Bourbon Patchouli Bat, are my two favorites. They're very different from each other, but both so rich and gorgeous. If you are at all thinking about it, do not miss this one!

Halloween 2019


Ghost – Maydi Frankincense, Black Orchid, Tonka Bean Absolute, Crimson (Studio Limited) Musk, Caramel, Lemon, Cola accord with Kola Nut and a drop of Ceylon Cinnamon

Blood – Kashmir (Studio Limited), Pipe Tobacco accord, Caramel Oudh (NA Studio), Black Patchouli leaves, Palo Santo essential oil, Italian Bergamot, Italian Pine resin, Frankincense Resin, Myrrh wood and Bastet’s Musk
Niki on Oct 17, 2019

Blood is super atmospheric! It's spooky, y'all. I could write a story based on this perfume. It starts out with the bright red musk that is Kashmir, and the sort of twang that is how palo santo starts out for me. The tobacco - I love their tobacco note, so I knew I had to have this! - is rich and dark, very realistic. And that caramel oudh, wow. That's a really good base for this blend, it's beautifully smoky, rich, warm. This is another that is sure to develop as it ages. It's quite strong, so even if you are inclined to slather, as I am, you might want to start out with a smaller amount than usual. It lasts for a very long time! The long drydown is a warm, inviting caramel tobacco oudh, perfect for a blustery fall day, or a dark, foggy night. I absolutely love this, it's incredible and so unique.

Blackout – NA Chypre accord (labdanum, oakmoss, lavender, patchouli and neroli), Jasmine Absolute, NA Oudh, Bastet Amber Absolute, Mandarin, Clove and Amber accord
Niki on Oct 17, 2019

Blackout is a stunner. I'm usually a little leery of jasmine, but it's so well done here - just a lovely, sweet purple floral that melds so seamlessly with the other notes. Darkly gothic, sexy and intriguing. I would say even if you are not usually into the listed notes, you might want to reconsider this - it's truly a stunner, and sure to only get better with age. I'm so glad I decided to give it a try! The clove is more of a supporting note here, and the chypre is the perfect balance against the sweet,sultry floral of the jasmine. What a unique perfume, I have nothing like it. Amazing!
This Mortal Coil – Balsamic Sandalwood, Mahogany wood, Turkish Rose, Musk
Margo on Sep 29, 2019

I love it. Smells fancy schmancy and the Rose isn’t too heavy or overpowering. Has a nice powderiness which is NOT my thing typically but is perfect for this. I want to put on a floofy dress and dance around a candlelit ballroom with a handsome stranger.

Dark Ghost Velvet – Velvet Blend: Eternal Ankh, Jasmine, Vanilla bean, and musk all weave the scent of Dark Ghost Velvet into Eternal Ankh Vanilla Absolute, Black Vanilla, Black Clove and a touch of Kashmir and Black Musk (Studio Limited)

Fillagree & Shadow – Saffron, Cherry Blossom, Pineapple, Lemon, Patchouli, Black Musk, Jasmine essence, Coconut Milk, Sandalwood and Nepalese Amber

Blood Queen – Wild Black Currant, Cemetery Musk, Santalum White (Studio Limited), Kashmir (Studio Limited), Black Musk, Blood Wine accord, Black Violet and Lilac essence
Gamingwithcats on Oct 03, 2019

The black currant in this is wonderfully juicy and sweet, giving this a strong, dark berry scent that sometimes reminds me of blackberry and blueberry. It's juicy and true rather than candied, even though it is quite sweet. Then there are hints of soapy, clean, white smelling musk and a lovely, dark, bruised violet scent. Dries down with hints of a rich wine note and sultry red musk. Complex, dark, and deeply indulgent. I think this will only improve with age, but right now it's a beautiful, gothic, dark fruity-floral that I think is just so beautiful.

joojifish on Oct 02, 2019

Owl-oween – Caramel, Arabica Coffee Bean Oil, Pumpkin Pie accord (light spices of clove, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger), Crystalline and Haitian Black Vanilla
Gamingwithcats on Oct 03, 2019

One of the nicest spiced coffee scents I own, because the spice actually behaves itself and doesn't overwhelm the other notes. It's warm, toasty, roasted, lightly sweetened coffee with a dusting of what smells like cinnamon and dark, rich cocoa powder on me. I love it and it makes me want this as a drink right now. And how cute is the owl label for this scent? Aww.
