Sniffie break...

Cute Black Kitten
So, for those of you not on my FL, I've been very busy and going through a LOT of life changes lately. Work's been almost unbearable (I'm a vet tech) and I'm just so stressed and overwhelmed.

I have money issues as well, but, well... this is HALLOWEEN! I can't pass them ALL up, right?! So I let myself indulge a little. I got 2 imps from a BPAL Halloween circle and I'm getting 2 and a sniffie from our Conjure Oil one :). I'm rediculously excited to get the Conjure Oil scents!!

After a particularly bad shift today I came home to my BPAL imps! Yes!! I got:

SAMHAIN 2009 - Truly the scent of autumn itself -- damp woods, fir needle, and black patchouli with the gentlest touches of warm pumpkin, clove, nutmeg, allspice, sweet red apple and mullein.

LAMBS-WOOL - According to William Shepard Walsh, the Gentleman's Magazine for May of 1784 stated, "this is a constant ingredient at merrymaking on Holy Eve." He also quotes Vallancey's etymological speculation: "The first day of November was dedicated to the angel presiding over fruits, seeds, etc., and was therefore named La Mas Ubhal, -- that is, the day of the apple fruit, -- and being pronounced Lamasool, the English have corrupted the name to Lambs-wool."
A popular holy day beverage in 18th century Ireland: roasted apples mashed into warmed milk and ale, with nutmeg, sugar, ginger, and clove.

I've just taken preliminary sniffs, but my GODDESS I love them both!! SO yum... Spicy and dirty and Fall and oh so Halloween goodness. Perhaps I'll give actual reviews later, but I just had to share my ray of sunshine with you guys. I thought you'd understand :).

There are a few that caught my attention, but I'm both a TOTAL foodie when it comes to my scents and a TOTAL Halloween girl ;). So that combo often dooms me ;).

Well, you know, it's funny, I've been trying to get Samhain for a few years now. I'm not one to buy a bottle unsniffed (usually...), and I ALWAYS seem to miss the openings in Halloween circles o_O. But this year I got one! So... long story short, I dunno! But I know I kinda assume that a scent that's brought back, even with a new year, it prolly the same or at least very similar to the year before ;).

Sure! I'm kinda chaotic and talk about my baby a lot ;). But I always welcome new friends :D.
