Mad As Birds by Darling Clandestine
Cloudswing by Darling Clandestine

NOTES
Mad As Birds
Mad as Birds is a sweet, cool, garden-dew fragrance with notes of pear and mint and smoky amber and marigolds. A multitude of different scent elements and weeks (months!) of methodical alchemy make Mad as Birds no ordinary scented oil mix—it’s a truly inimitable fragrance.

Cloudswing
The newly reformulated Cloudswing is a bright, crisp, golden-green scent with notes of warm hay and vanilla and mowed clover and marigolds and intense lemongrass. A bit of warning: this new batch is VERY heavy on the essentials, including cypress and lemongrass, so if you’re sensitive, pregnant or nursing, please steer clear of this lovely.

COMMENTS
Mad As Birds has to be one of my favorite perfumes ever from Darling Clandestine, with that being said i don’t think Cloudswing is too far behind. I guess I really like my marigold scents. xd This combination is so lovely. This combination smells of minty, lemongrassy pears and marigolds wrapped in vanilla and amber blankets. Sometimes I get a waft of lemongrass, and other times it’s most certainly pear and marigold.

You can find Mad As Birds and Cloudswing from the Darling Clandestine Etsy shop. You’ll find Mad as Birds as a perfume oil for $17 and as a solid perfume for $10. You’ll find Cloudswing as a perfume oil for $17 and as a solid perfume for $9.

Step Right Up (Calliope Crash Collection) by Darling Clandestine

NOTES
Step Right Up
It’s the eyes that tell you. When you shout into the crowd, daring them to enter a world of marvels, the likes of which they’ve never seen before. Some smile, some scoff, some draw back in what appears, uproariously, to be real horror. But there are a few—a select and wonderful few—whose eyes glimmer with a bright, palpable something, an untamed curiosity, an earnest desire to see and hear and touch and understand. These are the ones who linger in your memories, green and gray, gorgeous shadows of evenings by the sea, the glimmer and creak of wooden skiffs on the warm black water after the Big Top has tumbled and the throngs have dispersed. These are the ones who enter unblinking, meeting your outstretched hand with theirs, without fear, without scorn, without a word.

Carefully blended and infused by me in small batches in vintage green glass wine bottles, this is a clean, oceanic, very unisex fragrance with notes of wood and spice. More than a dozen different scent elements and several days of methodical alchemy make Step Right Up no ordinary scented oil mix—it’s a truly inimitable fragrance.

COMMENTS
Lordy. This perfume is made up of so many smellies, it’s amazing. When I first put this on I smell cloves and smoke and musk, when it settles down it smells of musk and vanilla and there’s a hint of clove. It’s just lovely. I will be procuring a full size solid asap, as I will be wearing this a lot.

You can find Step Right Up and other scents from the Calliope Crash Collection from the Darling Clandestine Etsy shop. You’ll find this as a perfume oil for $16 and as a solid perfume for $9.

Ripper by Mannaia Fragrances

NOTES
Ripper
Our tribute to Jack the Ripper smells like a smoky, rainy night in London, with additional notes of rose, tuberose, orchid, peppercorn, leather (like a certain apron), amber, musk, and a hint of grape. It’s fairly unisex, as the florals are not overwhelming.

COMMENTS
Ripper is a lovely floral scent. When I first put it on I smell orchid, amber and musk. Once it settles the rose and amber are heavy. It’s a beautiful fragrance. If you like rose you’ll definitely want this perfume.

You can find Ripper on the Mannaia Fragrances site as perfume oil in a sample vial for $2.50 and a full size perfume oil in a roller ball bottle for $8.

Mirror Witch by One Hand Washes The Other
Serpentina by Darling Clandestine

NOTES
Mirror Witch
Legend says that in order to summon the spirit of Bloody Mary, also known as the Mirror Witch, you must say her name thirteen times in front of a mirror, in the dark; it is said that on the thirteenth repetition, she will appear, Upon appearing, the Mirror Witch may do any number of things to her summoners, depending entirely on her mood upon being awakened. If she’s not offended you may get away with a scratch, but offend her and the price may very well be your life. Reverent gifts of Pomegranates, dried Figs, white Sage, candied Ginger, and a vision of White Musk.

Serpentina
Serpentina is a crisp, green, ethereal fragrance with a little opium bite. More than a dozen different scent elements and several days of methodical alchemy make Serpentina no ordinary scented oil mix—it’s a truly inimitable fragrance,

COMMENTS
Mirror Witch is a scent I wasn’t sure I’d like, but I love it. When paired with Serpentina I smell fig, sage and this exotic floral something. It’s a lovely combination, both scents are delicious on their own but together, oh man. You need to try it.

You can find Serpentina from Darling Clandestine‘s etsy shop in a solid perfume for $9 and in a perfume oil for $13. Unfortunately Mirror Witch is an autumn/Hallow’s Even scent from One Hand Washes the Other. They’ve been retired until autumn.

NOTES
Bathory
Inspired by the Hungarian “Blood Countess” herself. Contains notes of rose, tuberose, orchid, blood orange, blackberry, hibiscus, wine, amber, musk, and neroli.

COMMENTS
I like rose and smoky incense scents. >.> When I first put this on the rose scent is really strong, but then after a few minutes it settles down into a musky, amber, rose scent. It’s a lovely scent and I highly recommend it if you decide to shop with Mannaia. :)

You can find Bathory from Mannaia Fragrances. You will find it in a 5/8 dram for $2.50 and a full size 1/3 oz roller ball for $8.00.

I Smell Like A Witch by One Hand Washes The Other

NOTES
I Smell Like A Witch
A special request for Luna of Toxid-Lotus.net, I smell like a Witch came about when a little boy told her that the combination of scents she was wearing made her smell “like a witch”. Heh. Red & White Roses, Cotton Candy, Bubble Gum, Smoke, Sandalwood, Patchouli & Vanilla Bean.

COMMENTS
I was super excited when Becca made this for me, it was perfect. When I first put this on I can smell the rose and bubble gum, then it settles to a smokey/rosey/incense smell. It’s like walking through a rose garden getting wafts of rose, only it’s filled with smoke and incense too. I also love layering this with other scents. Also you can read the back story here. :)

You can find I Smell Like A Witch from OHWTO in a solid scent for $4 and as perfume oil for $9.

Falchion by Darling Clandestine

NOTES
Falchion
Falchion is a deep, sultry, earthy unisex fragrance with a hint of dark chocolate. Superbly sexy and thoroughly appropriate for gents and bold ladies who aren’t into the sweet stuff. More than a dozen different scent elements and weeks of methodical alchemy make Falchion no ordinary scented oil mix—it’s a truly inimitable fragrance, part of my Calliope Crash line. It does contain a little cinnamon, which can warm the skin a bit, which I think is rather delightful, but take note if you’re a sensitive type. :)

COMMENTS
So first, I don’t like chocolate, I just don’t. With that being said this scent is amazing. It goes on herby/earthy and mellows out to this earthy/bee’s wax/musky scent on me. It’s like magic.

You can find Falchiion on the Darling Clandestine website, $9 for the solid scent and I don’t think she sells an oil version, but I could be wrong.

Be Mine by One Hand Washes The Other
Morderteile Kelah by Darling Clandestine

NOTES
Be Mine
Be Mine is the smell of a thousand heart-shaped cinnamon red-hots sprinkled liberally on buttercream-frosted cupcakes, accompanied by a bowl of punch, cups of coffee and tea; all served at an antique wooden table laden with roses, jasmine and orange blossoms; the perfect Valentine’s Day afternoon teatime treat.

Morderteile Kelah
Amber, hyacinth, milk and strawberry jam, brewing in a batch of double-barrel scotch, aged 12 years.

COMMENTS
I’m not usually a fan of “foodie” smells but gosh this smells good. At first this combination smells almost like apple pie, the cinnamon is really strong, then it mellows out and smells musky, and sweet with a touch of amber. It makes me feel like I’m having a picnic in the middle of meadow in the summer, where I’m not dying of heat or breaking out all over from grass allergies. xd

You can find Be Mine from OHWTO as a solid scent for $2.80 or as a perfume oil for $7.20. It’s on clearance as it’s a Valentine’s Day fragrance. Morderteile Kelah is currently un-released from Darling Clandestine but will be available in solid scent soon.

Veritas by One Hand Washes The Other

NOTES
Veritas
A fragrance inspired by The Boondock Saints. At last.
Veritas, the left hand to Aequitas'(from Darling Clandestine) right, is a green chypre scent, though the perfume itself is a cloudy whiskey gold. This perfume was meant to evoke the imagery from the Boondock Saints, and with that in mind I set out to gather components that would do just that. The notes used are almost too many to list, but include a quartet of sensual musks, church incense, white funerary freesia and lilies, shamrock clover, men’s aftershave, bourbon vanilla, gun oil, Irish whiskey, smoke, worn leather, and tobacco absolute. So as not to leave anyone out, this scent is perfectly unisex, though as with any perfume oil, your skin may “amp” up certain notes more than others, so your mileage may vary.

COMMENTS
I realize the notes up there is like a paragraph long but omg this smell is amazing. It’s musky, smokey and dirty and it smells like an old saloon with perfumes and cologne and smoke and alcohol and everything. It’s amazing. It makes me see an old saloon. Ugh, it’s awesome. Gosh I never liked perfumes much until I found indie. <3 You can find Veritas as a perfume oil for $12 at the OHWTO etsy shop.

Mad As Birds by Darling Clandestine
Toxid Lotus by One Hand Washes The Other

NOTES
Mad As Birds
is a sweet, cool, garden-dew fragrance with notes of pear and mint and amber and marigolds.

Toxid Lotus
is like I Smell Like A Witch’s older sister, you know, the one always in trouble for doing something devious. Blackened dark Musk, Red Wine, Damask Rose Absolute, Frankincense, Baby Roses, Myrrh, and a hint of White Amber.

COMMENTS
I’m no expert in perfumes, but I know what makes me feel good, what provokes a memory and just what smells good to me. Mad As Birds is an amazing smell. I wear it quite often paired with other scents. It’s wonderful on it’s own and mixed with other things. Mad As Birds smells like musky/herby florals to me. Toxid Lotus is a special blend Becca from OHWTO made for me. It smells like old victorian houses, incense and smoke, with a hint of rose to me.

You can find Mad As Birds from Darling Clandestine in either a perfume oil for $17 or as a solid perfume for $10. You can find Toxid Lotus from One Hand Washes The Other as a perfume oil for $9 or as a solid scent for $4.
