    Was totally not expecting to like this! Initially, it smells like a swirl of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cream — perfect for colder months and especially end-of-year festivities. But it stops just short of gourmand as it dries, becoming darker and more herbal with a fresh ginger top note. Makes me think of the way Poisoned Apple shifts from a sweet, wholesome scent to something tainted but still alluring.

    Evil gingerbread incense is very apt. Dark, delicious, wonderful smelling with a little bit of an off note at the end (which I assume will come forward more with the rest of the herbs as it ages, mine is rather new). I thought I wasn’t a foodie person but it turns out this (combined with Le Lethe) makes me feel so happy, autumn-wintery, and powerful, that I can’t help but be converted to the faction of people who love smelling like a witchy bakery. So much love for this scent, and definitely fits its namesake well.

    I ordered this a few days ago and I’m incredibly happy with it. From the bottle is rather sweet, but once it dries I can smell the ginger and a managerie of herbs and spices; the sweetness is still there but the ginger and resin is dominant. It’s complex and soothing at the same time, but using too much can be a bit overpowering. I highly recommend it if you like the scent of spices as much as I do.

    Small disclaimer: I am not a foodie, so this imp was already fighting an uphill battle. That said, I didn’t care too much for this one. The ginger was there, but I was also getting a very strong smell of both cinnamon and nutmeg. There seemed to be a milky undertone in keeping with the whole baked goods theme. But it didn’t work on me at all. On me it smelled like soggy French toast with too much nutmeg added.

    For a better foodie scent in the same vein, try Chimera. That one smells exactly like Cinnabons. Mmmm.

    This is all I wear now. Spicy, sexy, and a little dangerous–the best armor there is.

    Yaaas! Evil gingerbread incense!

    Cinnamon and spices usually don’t work on me from bpal, but this smells like sweet, delicious, just starting to burn around the edges gingerbread cookies. Wonderful and comforting.

    I wasn’t off at first by the scent from the bottle: buttery caramel popcorn. It was unpleasantly buttery. However, determined to give every single purchase a try, I put it on. The smell from the bottle lasted about 30 seconds, transforming into a beautiful, dark, spicy, and richly brooding scent. It was quite fun bearing witness to said transformation. Lasts quite a while, too.

    In the imp: Ginger and resins (but mostly ginger)! I like to think of it as evil gingerbread.

    Wet: Ginger dominant, along with cinnamon, a hint of something citrus (I think it is the herbs?) and the resins. The herbs become sharper and stronger over time, but it remains ginger and spice dominant.

    Dry: Mostly ginger and spices (along with a few herbs).

    Verdict: I prefer this scent in candle form (as the candle is creamier than the perfume oil), but this is a nice gingerbread-like scent.

    Out of the vial” Oddly enough my very first thought was peanut butter then I then I realized it was more like ginger molasses cookies(as others have said). After a couple more sniffs it gets more astringent smelling, probably the herbs. On me it continues to kind of smell like ginger molasses cookies it gets warmer and abit spicier. Its surprisingly sweet after awhile (my geuss would be one of the resins is benzoin?). I like it alot.

    My ex got this for me years ago and I am buying myself another vial! I’ve described it as “an evil cookie.” I absolutely love ginger in all incarnations and this is one of the most delightful ways to get my fix. Has a certain unsettling warmth to it that matches the description perfectly.

    It starts off smelling like gingerbread, which surprised me a bit as I was expecting something a little more sinister given the title, but as time goes on it rapidly turns into a pleasantly spicy, incense-y scent which I really liked. It’s actually kind of clever. Shub-Niggurath’s supposed to be a dark mother, fertility figure so it makes sense that this perfume starts off with a motherly scent that turns into something otherwordly and mysterious.
