I am SO excited, I have to stop myself from camping out at the mail box. This is my first year of getting autum scents here and I finally will be able try some that I added to my list to try when autumn came around.

I ordered Devils Tongue, Halloween Night, Jack & The Devil, Pumpkin Spice Latte, and Blackburn Farmstead perfumes (that was a hard toss-up between Blackburn and Thornwood). I also grabbed the Witch's Cottage soap (although I know I'll be ordering the perfume shortly, if it's not sold out). There were several that I'd been looking for and didn't see, then realized some of them were part of the group that had been sold out. I can't wait to try these. So excited. Very Happy

Yay! Can't wait to hear what you think of the stiff you got. My order came today. Ive been checking out some of the new Manor Collection fragrances. Loving Attic and Cellar! Wasn't as excited about Kitchen as I thought I was going to be, but it is still a great fragrance! Got to soak in the tub with Crumbling Crypt salts this evening. They smell so good!

My sample of Library has been getting a lot of love around here. At first application, it's a true and strong leather, but it quickly begins to shift around to a softer leather and a woody note rises to the top. After about a half hour in, the paper note came out for me, mingling with all of these notes and creating an amazing sum for the whole of the parts. It's really fantastic--but then I love Solstice Scents leather notes, so I'm probably biased. Very Happy

I loved the smell of Witch's Cottage soap so much that I turned around this afternoon and ordered the perfume. So fresh and lovely.

I'm pretty amazed at the staying power of Blackburn Farmstead. I applied it over 12 hours ago, and I can still smell the patch on my arm. At first application, I wasn't sure if the grape syrup was going to go away, but then it started to merge with my skin and I've really been enjoying this one--although it's much sweeter than I tend to gravitate toward in terms of perfume.

I cannot get enough of my Pumpkin Spice Latte. It is soooo amazing. Caribou Coffee makes *the best* pumpkin spice latte, and my first comment was, "This smells like Caribou's Pumpkin Spice latte!" I love the way the coffee provides the perfect balance for the sweeter notes, and how it all comes together.

Jack & The Devil is a new love. To me it is the perfect autumn/Halloween scent. So spot on for what I love in autumn scents.

Devil's Tongue was a lot more masculine than I expected at first application, but as it dried down I couldn't stop sniffing my arm. I want to try that one allllll by itself so I can get the full effect. I really like how dry it seemed to be at first, then how it softened and opened up some.

I think I need to try Halloween Night all by itself. The initial chocolate note was pretty fun and then it shifted down to a marshmallowy nougat, but then from there it seemed to want to do some kind of powdery weird thing. I think it's being thrown off by some of the other scents though, so I'll be playing around with it some more. I'd still like it even if it stayed as it is, but I have a feeling that once it gets on its own, it'll really shine.

WOW, thank you so much for the reviews! I love hearing about the winners. I am so glad that you're enjoying Library! There are several notes I blended to get that leather accord and I'm happy to hear it is working for you. Library has 20 notes!! Enjoy and thanks again for reviewing. Smile I did add the new scents to the Scent Review and Reference section of the forum if you are so inclined at any point to review or copy/paste.
