The Morbid The Merrier- A review
The Morbid The Merrier has been on my list for such a long time but to be honest , I am so picky on scents, like annoying picky. Well after winning RiverCityLizzys 100+ giveaway which included full size bottle of Noelia I was hooked. Noelia smells so blasted lovely I couldn't stop sniffing my wrists ( which made an interesting night at the bar.. my friends kept thinking I was losing my mind ). At the time I went to the site it was closed.. So I waited and finally it opened. I hopped over to Etsy and placed my order. TMTM has a nice selection of oils for anyones ideal scent. I ended up choosing choose 5 sample set.
Shipping and packaging:My order arrived on Sept 9th in a bubble mailer. It took 10 days from ordering to receive, not bad! My smell good came carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and tissue wrap in a cute fashion and also include a card and a free sample!
The scents I chose are-
Delina - "is a scent for a woman with a dark side. It's black garters and blood red lips, sweet and sinister simultaneously. Lotus gives it innocence, amber grounds, and red wine gives it just enough naughty! I think it's something Miss Delina herself would have liked."
I love this scent..It absolutely smells incredible. I can't stop smelling myself when I wear it.. This will be a full size purchase! Delina definitely has a dark and sexiness to it!
Athelia - the blackest fig, accompanied by spice, wood smoke, earth and moss... softened and sweetened with lotus flower.
I have a love/hate relationship with this scent.. I don't love it but don't hate it. It does smell good and smells pretty good on me but I would not buy a full size of it. Honestly don't know how much I will wear it. It may go in the purse as an emergency scent.
Lucy-White-out! A melange of white, white, white. White musk, white sandal, vanilla bean, indian white amber and white pepper. But don't worry. I've added enough black to keep it interesting.
I was very iffy on this scent, it really didn't sound like something that would smell good on me, I was wrong. This is a fantastic scent and I love it!
This is the only scent I do not like. It doesn't smell good to me, to much like flowers .I knew from first smell it is not a Christa scent. Don't get me wrong it smells good, just not the deep musky, dark smell I like.
Paramour- "Oh, romance. Or something like it. A dozen red roses, spilled wine, a hint of blood, and gunsmoke"
Wowzers.. Beautiful scent.. I love everything about this! I can't wait to purchase a full size! For some reason this smell reminds me of the book.movie Gone with the Wind. Go with me on this one. Roses.. something that would of been around a plantation house.. spilled wine.. cause Scarlet is a diva.. blood... cause of bloodshed due to war... and gunsmoke.. cause of war.. I don;'t know thats what it reminds me of..
I orginally wanted Organ Grinder but convroed and asked to switch it out for Paramour and the owner Lysa quickly replied "Absolutely". Well Lysa sent Organ Grinder anyways!
Organ Grinder -" Spicy, dark, and seductive. A heavy base of tobacco, smoke, pepper and wood, rounded out by just a touch of sweet. A deep, masculine scent - to be worn only by the ones our mothers warned us about"
I have to admit when first choosing this I wanted it based on the fact Organ Grinder is an Emilie Autumn song, and she is one of my favorite artist! Once I read the description I thought it would be too deep of a scent for myself, thats why I asked to switch it out, but when Lysa sent it anyway I was super stoked to try it out. This oil reminds me of Emilie Autumn's Organ Grinder song. Its deep and dark, but still lovely.. something right out of the Dark Asylum.
-Good variety of scents and products
-Good shipping time
-I don't like the one scent, but that shouldn't reflect the shop
Will I be ordering agian? Oh yes!! I can't wait to order a couple full sizes and some more samples! I am already adding things into my cart!
