Tuesday, September 26, 2023 - I am behind on orders significantly. I will be doing my best to dispatch all of them today and tomorrow. I had a very serious health complication and was in the hospital. I run this business completely solo - this is truly a one woman show. I am so deeply sorry that I am this behind.
I am currently working on your orders as fast as I can. Thank you so much for your patience. Shipping times will be back to normal on Thursday.
Saturday, July 22, 2023 - I have restocked over 40 perfumes! Most of your favourites are back! I've had some issues getting a few aroma compounds because of supply chain issues, so if you see your perfume don't wait to purchase as it may be a little while before I can get the compounds again. As a result, samples may be limited for the time being.
Bespoke is temporarily unavailable. I will be taking a bespoke creative break while I update the website with new releases <3
Thursday April 13, 2023 - I will slowly be discontinuing the 2ml size. I will only be restocking in 1ml, 5ml and 10ml. I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. It's been difficult to predict the sales on 2ml whereas 1ml, 5ml and 10ml are consistent. Ultimately it will save me a lot of time in packaging orders and getting them out to you faster because I can bottle many 1ml vials in advance.
Master Scent List
An amazing redditor created a master scent list for my entire inventory - Thank you, Mary!
Oh my!!! There are no words for how amazing this scent is! I got this as a sample and will for sure get a full size! This smells better than most of my expensive niche perfumes! This scent makes me swoon, it is creamy and rich and absolute perfection!
This scent is very crisp and fresh you can definitely smell the lilacs and dried red berries which almost reminds me of a warm spring day or even the first start of fall I love that I don't have to put on a ton of it in order to smell it, it is also one that stood out among the nine others I got!!
This one will definitely be a scent I will have to stock up on even my kids like the scent of it the Creator did an amazing job on this one ❤️
Received this as a gift and I’m not someone who would have chosen this scent particularly (I don’t really do patchouli) although there are a large number of scents I’ve saved for later purchase. Decided to give this a whirl anyway and was very happily surprised. Something rich and sweet while still having a deep and kinda sexy after note. Will continue to wear this one and am glad I received it from a friend. Can’t wait to order more!
Okay first of all OMG this scent is amazing!!! Its a deep sensual scent with sweet undertones, i cant stop smelling it and putting it on! Im in love with this shop i highly recommend i cant wait to try more out!!, i love the convenient small size to test them out, these are very strong scented so a tiny dab goes a long way!. And beautiful little bottles!, also the seller is so sweet gives an extra bonus tester bottle and a coupon.
I wanted a scent that reflected my love of sweets and forests and Suzy nailed it :) amazing packaging and great customer service as usual! She is very caring and amazing at what she does!
surrounded by heavy wooden walls, a box made to fit, marked by ceremonial incenses and embellished by gentle dried spices. this really smells like an actual wooden box with notes of warmth and spice, and i would like to lay in it for a little while. definitely a niche scent (at least for my sensabilities), and a damn fine one.
This is my 3rd order from Lurker and strange..I buy a lot of oils from around Etsy, but it's hit or miss with me. I'm pretty picky about how oils burn down with my chemistry, and so many hand made oils smell “confused” if that makes “sense” ? (Not that I could formulate better of course )🧐. My top fave from Lurker and Strange shall remain a secret due to my fear of her running out. ;)
turned out beautifully! very warm and fruity-sweet, which is exactly what i was hoping for :) came packaged securely with a list of the exact notes used.
I ordered a sample pack of 10, and I ranked this one in the bottom 3 by smelling the vials alone. Once I put it on my body it escalated to the top of my list. Might even be ranked number 1. Reminds me of strawberry creme saver candy....I've attached a pic for those that don't know what I'm talking about.
Beautiful!! Not a duplicate, but very reminiscent of TF's Tobacco Vanille. However, this is definitely richer and a bit more complex. Even if the price for both was the same, I'd still pick this one hands down.
I'm a big perfume fan that's been slowly wading the indie world. I like to support Canadian businesses when I can, so I decided to try this shop with two mystery bags. So far, I love everything! The scents are unique and smell beautiful. The packaging is super cute. And it all arrived well-packed and unharmed. I'll definitely be back again!
This scent is is sweet and warm, but more importantly is my message below.
Lurker and Strange is my favourite place to purchase fragrance oils. I love the selection and the fun way everything is done. From the creative names to the hand-made packaging.
I have more than 12 of the 1ml dabbers and each time I choose one from my collection, it feels special. Like a little potion that I dab on my wrist to improve my sad mood or just add to an already happy mood.
And Suzy is always so appreciative of every little purchase. You can’t help but want to return to choose more interesting scents. 🥰
This is so earthy and soft, I love it so much !
The Amber perfume I have been searching for! Resinous, sappy, and smoky with a hint of sweetness. Wears close but lasts a day on my scent-devouring skin. Beautifully packaged and arrived in perfect condition. This was the fastest order I have ever received from overseas.
With Highgate Vampire specifically, I didn't think it was possible to actually capture the sweet smell of fallen leaves that have almost begun to rot, but this perfume proved me way wrong!! Another fantastic addiction to my growing collection ❤️❤️❤️❤️
