More snakes means an excuse for more cake! And more cake means getting ALL the corner pieces--the ones with the big frosting flowers. Every birthday girl should be so lucky.
We've tweaked our usual Birthday Party vanilla cake accord with a little snake musk, salty sea air, and cool Mysore sandalwood. Also extra frosting.

in the bottle: something indescribably pleasant, sweet, and oceany. i honestly can't describe it as anything other than 'the best smelling sunscreen ever'
wet on skin: still the ambrosia of sunscreen, with the cake coming out a little more. not 'salty' per se, but a little tangy. very sweet without being super foodie.
drying: on my skin, something a little tropical comes out, something a little fruity-floral, but barely there. the cake is still something of a background scent, but i'm not complaining. it's not a gourmand scent, which i appreciate; it's just cakey enough to remind you that this is a party, but also a party attended mostly by sunbathers. it really does take me to a beachside pool. it eventually dries down into mostly a tropical sunscreen type scent with a little sweet icing. you know how when all the cake is gone and all that's left are the piped icing edges on the platter? it's like that at the end.
this is honestly one of the most unique perfume oils i've experienced so far! it's really intriguing and sweet and i can't stop smelling my wrists. i'll probably end up getting a full-size of this during the summer.

I really haven't smelled any salt in this at all. The only things I smell are cake and sandalwood, which is very nice. Stays on a good long while, too; I'm pretty active, and it doesn't sweat off.

This one sounded really interesting, and I was excited to try it, but on me it was a disaster.
It was interesting (and not in a bad way) when I first applied it, musky saltiness and no cake yet. Over the next hour, the sandalwood came out more, and it turned weird and unpleasant. The salt remained dominant throughout, and the cake did not deign to appear at all. I did get a touch of sweet icing, but with the overwhelming saltiness, all it did was turn my stomach. (It didn't help that I had a touch of the stomach flu.) After about four hours, I had to wash it off.
I ended up smelling like some totally un-cute gorgon ate all the cake and spoiled the party, and all that was left was a smear of icing on her lips. Unfortunate :(

It may smell like a baby gorgons birthday party but mother Medusa thinks it will leave a lot of pretty men rock hard in her garden.
In the bottle I can smell the sandalwood, musk, salt and cake. On my skin wet I can't really smell the cake and the salty sea air gives it a 'tang' im not particularly fond of. Once it dries the salty tang fades a bit and the cakey sweetness comes out more. This is a good thing since the iconage of Medusa and vanilla cake should have a smell that's tasty, seductive, and a bit dangerous. A salt lick doesn't quite cover that. The rest of the scent is wonderful though and as I said once it dried the sea air scent is subtle. I'd probably like that aspect of it removed entirely but this is still a scent i'd happily wear and feel qyute empowered doing so.
Sort of like I did when I performed a burlesque number this Halloween as a rather appropriate mythical figure.
