Kudzu eats cars. Kudzu eats houses. Some day, kudzu is going to eat the entire #$@$# world...and this is how it will smell. Green twining vines, sappy resin, clutching roots...and just a weensy whiff of human civilization erased from the face of the earth.

Intense pine right out of the bottle and fresh on my skin. I expect not to like it. But then Clive Owen walks in my door, bearing an armload of firewood. He’s shirtless and steaming in the sharp autumn air.
“Where do you want this?” He presents his burden of cedar logs. The fresh-cut sawdust scent mingles with the scent of pine woods outside, and the warm air in the cabin, and makes me a little light-headed. Wait, I have a cabin?
“Um, next to the wood stove is good…” I have a wood stove too? Huh.
“As you wish,” he rumbles, and deposits his burden, the hairs on his arms gleaming gold in the morning light. “Any other chores you have for me?” he asks, with a faint smile.
Kudzu Doom is a woodsy masculine scent, shifting from green to golden brown in tone.
It’s the inside of an heirloom chest, imbued with the ghost of a potpourri bundle wrapped in clean linen. Sawdust from an aromatic tree. Resiny. Cedery. Mmm. Excuse me, I need to think of more chores.

I just put Kudzu Doom on 1 wrist, Green Sugar Smoke on the other, and rubbed them together. It is full of awesome and WIN. The sweetness of the kudzu smooths over the sharp herbal parts of the smoke, and the bottom notes of the smoke give the kudzu extra oomph. Any self respecting Ent or Green Man would like this.

This is #9 of my 10-squee sampler.
It is green. It is sweet. It can't be any more different from Captain of Industry, yet I love it just as much. My aunt had an herb garden and at the back was a goldfish pond and a grape arbor. This is what it smelled like on a late summer evening when the Concord grapes were ripe, but more so. If it smells this good when the kudzu takes over the planet, all I can say is go, kudzu, go!

I swear on me there is a hint of something spicy, maybe that is the ghost of human civilization after the kudzu has destroyed everything. Otherwise there is a strong deep green living scent over that intriguing spicy scent.

I stayed away from this one initially because resin's never worked very well on me, but I'm glad I tried it! From the description, I expected concentrated green plants, but this blend became a canopy of summer gardens. Like walking through someone's overgrown backyard, where all the fruit trees and flowering plants have mixed themselves up and grown in tendrils everywhere, sticky vines sunning themselves in the afternoon.
It started off as a light, sweet blend with a grape note to ground it, and stayed that way as it mellowed, with a cooler overtone of mixed plants. Surprisingly, this one didn't become either too grassy or too grape, but it did run with my habit of cranking up the sweet notes. As a result, the grape did dominate a little, but it easily kept a complexity of plant life to keep this scent distinctive and interesting.

If this is doom, I would gladly be doomed for eternity! As soon as it's on, that beautiful bright green just wraps you lovingly in its vice-like grip. This fades into a purpley smell that I can't define but I really love. It's something like lilac with just a touch of grape. Oddly, it reminds me of a My Little Pony I had when I was a kid. That sweet/floral/purple smell becomes a nice and subtle companion for the rest of the day. Definitely one of my favorites from the set.

I'm actually often wary of sweet smells -- I don't wear most florals or fruity scents. But there's a kind of heavy sweetness to Kudzu Doom on me that I love; along with the green-vine brightness that other reviewers have mentioned, I get a purply sweet note rounding out the bottom of it that feels both sensual and confident. I have it in a squee right now and I'm pretty sure it'll be one of the next ones I pick up in a bottle.

Definitely agreeing with the others on it reminding me of fresh cut plants, largely grass. It's a sweet smell, and I find it quite energizing. It's like a pep talk in a bottle for fighting the plantpocalypse, or whatever mountain I might need to climb that day!

Let me precursor this by saying I love gummy bears. Specifically, I love Haribo gummy bears. I'm now fairly confident that I know from what green plant grows these delicious suckers, and I know what it's like to be swathed in said plant. It truly smells like summer in the south--green and full of sweet things.

The first reviewer said it best; it smells like fresh cut flower stems or grass. I got this as an extra in my squee set, and it was a pleasant surprise. It was my first year living in Georgia and this scent instantly became my symbol. This smell helped this Yankee find a new found love of the south.
