My first purchase and I am very pleased, I love the subtle coconut and the calming vevitar. I feel safe and protected wearing it.

This is so great! It really is snake oil with toasty dark coconut and vetiver that makes less intense and more earthy than snake oil. Wonderful! So glad I sprung for this bottle, and almost want to buy another for back up.

Dark, musky, sweet but not candy sugar sweet. I can definitely smell the coconut, however it isn’t that super sugary coconut. It’s more so a dry smokey type. I can smell a tad bit boozy (in bottle mostly), but it adds to the sultry darkness. I have been using it as my signature scent as of late. It is definitely yummy!

This is such a perfect blend – Snake Oil tends to be a little too erb-ish and over the top sweet on me sometimes, but the coconut, vetiver and vanilla balances out this wonderfully. Death Adder somewhat reminds me of Dragon’s Milk because of the vanilla, but it is not quite as sweet. Over all, this is a gorgeous blend that I find myself wearing all the time, and it is quickly becoming one of my most comforting scents. 10/10, would HIGHLY recommend.

This could be the one. I love the smell of Snake Oil but it’s a little too much for an every day scent for me. I was hoping to find a nice compromise among these Carnaval Snake Pit blends. This is the 4th or 5th I’ve bought (thank god Carnaval has lasted so long) and it may be the best yet. It’s got that sultry, smoky, spiciness of Snake Oil, but the coconut is really mellowing it out. I like the vetiver here, too. Much deep, chewy, earthiness. Much love.
Where I’d wear it: Would be great in the autumn, but I think it’d work on a sultry summer night, too.

Amazing! In the bottle it smells like nuts and a bit of Snak Ooil. On the skin on the other hand you can smell the coconut and vanilla blended with SO. Smells sexy and not too sweet!

Sexy, sugared, dark muskiness with the addition of a sweet, dark, dry, woody coconut and an extra helping of a sexy, dark vanilla.

Raw Patchouli, opoponax, and a coppery dry blood exhale.
The drunk in the graveyard raised his bottle to his lips. One of the gravestones flipped over, revealing a grasping corpse; a headstone turned around, flowers replaced by a grinning skull. A wraith appeared on the right of the church, while on the left of the church something with a half-glimpsed, pointed, unsettlingly birdlike face, a pale, Boschian nightmare, glided smoothly from a headstone into the shadows and was gone. Then the church door opened, a priest came out, and the ghosts, haunts, and corpses vanished, and only the priest and the drunk were left alone in the graveyard. The priest looked down at the drunk disdainfully, and backed through the open door, which closed behind him, leaving the drunk on his own.
The clockwork story was deeply unsettling. Much more unsettling, thought Shadow, than clockwork has any right to be.
“You know why I show that to you?” asked Czernobog.
“That is the world as it is. That is the real world. It is there, in that box.”

The Misericordia, or Tristis, are vampires that are consumed with a longing to regain their lost humanity, some to the point of being driven mad by the desire to be human once more. The shock of their transition into vampirism and the rejection they faced from friends and loved ones was devastating, and it compromises their ability to find solace and comfort. Unlike the Transeo, Misericordia cannot merge into human society, but are relegated by their own grief to the position of outsiders. Their inherent melancholy and morose temperaments make it difficult for them to cultivate relationships with either humans or vampires. Most vampires treat the Misericordia with a fair amount of derision, and they are sometimes hunted by Interfectors who see the perspective of the Misericordia as an affront to their way of thinking.
Eons of grief and unending hunger: magnolia, black currant, castoreum accord, lavender, labdanum, amber, rose otto, and opoponax.
No man knows till he has suffered from the night how sweet and dear to his heart and eye the morning can be.
