    Hoodoo U Love?

    I will not disagree with you there. I'd like to burn it in a room full of people and see how they react to it.

    Hey! Betrothal Potion isn't supposed to get you mauled! It usually inspires quite tender and respectful adoration. It must have been your own sexy self.

    Spider Silk

    Thank you for the lovely posts, ladies. This is one of my favorite blends too - I made sure to grab myself another bottle before it sold out. ::greedy::

    is it just me?

    Ahhh, the Accolade is one of my favorites too. It was one I considered for this month's releases as well.

    The one I used for Robin and Marian is called "The Kiss", by Italian artist Francesco Hayez 1791-1882. You can buy a very affordably priced print of it from the wonderful non-profit organization, The Art Renewal Center, which specializes in fine art preservation, sharing and education. Here is a direct link to the picture: http://www.artrenewal.org/asp/database/image.asp?id=19820

    LOL! I actually went to see that film when it came out. Opening weekend in Westwood. There was no more than 12 people in the audience, and a couple of them walked out in the middle. I went with another musician friend, and we were convinced that no one else in theatre 'got it'. It's amazing how the popularity of that film has grown into a cult phenominon.

    Mummy Stuffing

    Oh! Fascinating. Thanks for explaining that to me. Maybe, if you put on unscented moisturizer, and then your perfume, it might give you a base so your skin doesn't suck it all up right away? By the way, we also make scented lotions and creams, by special order. I wore Spider Silk this week a couple of times, it's a truly powdery blend - gorgeously silky. I had forgotten how long it lasts. I could still smell it quite strongly after nearly 24 hours on my skin.

    Sugared French Vanilla

    No, no. To clarify, they are not all natural, (and natural does not = skin safe, by the way) they are just made very 'cleanly', with exceptionally high grade ingredients, and with dilutants that have proven to be hypoallergenic to most people. And without any chemical preservatives, silicones, stabilizers, etc. Our perfumes are a blend of natural and synthetic ingredients.

    Phantom of the Trailer Park

    LOL! It smells like that on me too, but it smells awesome on Danna! She wears it all the time!

    Mummy Stuffing

    I actually have a question about what everyone means when they say things 'turn to powder', and why that is so undesirable. I happen to love a powdery note here or there, and sometimes do my best to create one on purpose. For example, Oak Moss, certain types of Jasmine, and certain types of Sugar are guaranteed to produce a powder note, and I enjoy using them in my blends. What is so bad about it?

    That makes me so happy to hear!

    Sugared French Vanilla

    It has a lot of natural ingredients in it, and some of them are heavier oils than others. If I were to add perfumer's alcohol or a chemical stabilizer, it would make them blend, but I don't want to do that. I like that our products are 'fresh', and that people who are normally sensitive to commercial fragrances because of the chemicals, can wear ours without having a skin reaction.
  16. I've been puzzling over some of the comments I've received regarding Phero Girl, and its comparison to Sugared Honeycomb. First of all, YES, It was an intentional choice to use a Honeycomb base along with the Copulins, because when I smelled the EOW Copulins, I knew this would be the ideal cover. The natural scent of honeycomb is very similar to the scent of "female musk", in a flattering/complimentary way. What's puzzling me, is that some have remarked that Phero Girl seems like a "thinner" blend than Sugared Honeycomb, when in fact the opposite is true. Phero Girl is opulently rich. It finally occurred to me, that perhaps the advice to 'SHAKE WELL" on the label and perfumerie page had not been heeded. You will notice, there is a settled layer of deep orange on the bottom of the bottles and Trial Vials. That is the Bee Pollen, and it is an essential part of the experience of this perfume. You MUST shake this blend until cloudy, and then apply. If you don't , you're not going to get the intended effect. If you didn't shake it before you tried yours, please do me the favor of doing so and then report back, ok? Thank you! * FYI: Ingredients for Phero Girl: Honey, Honeycomb, Orange Blossom, Bee Pollen, Amber, Sugar, Essenceā„¢ of Woman Pure Copulin. Ingredients for Sugared Honeycomb: Honey, Honeycomb, Sugars.

    Summer of Sin

    That is EXACTLY what Linnea was going for with this scent. A scent that would bring you right back to your sultry vacation on the beach.

    Well, here is my take on the matter. When we blend something for a specific magical purpose, the balance of the ingredients can at times be very important, so if you're messing with that balance, you can negate the 'magic' of the potion. This is especially true with ritual potions such as Chakra Balancing Potion, Manifestation Potion and Justice Potion for which I worked really hard to measure and balance and empower each of the entities within them. (You will usually see these described as 'ritual' potions on our site.) With other blends, it is not as important. Some are a collection of ingredients that share similar properties, such as love attraction, prosperity attraction, etc, and the amount of each ingredient is not as crucial - it is brewed to smell good, so if you add other things to adjust it to your senses, it's not really messing with the magic. Now, does it have to be perceptable? Yes. Consciously? No. The potions are supposed to evoke a subconscious reaction in people, based upon their emotional reactions to the scents, and also the vibe that the wearer may be emitting while wearing the scent. It is the art of persuasion, via aroma. It is meant to be so subtle, that the person is not aware they are being persuaded by it. I am often asked if these will work like a spell over long distances, when the object cannot smell the potion, and the answer to that is NO. If you want to effect the person at a distance, you need to place the scent in their hands - a scented letter or object, a scented necklace, a hankerchief, something like that, and make sure that the person associates the scent with YOU. Hope that helps answer your questions!

    Oh, you just reminded me! I have been wearing Ashes to Dust EVERY DAY since New Year's! I have been just dabbing a drop between my shoulder blades to ward off bad things that may creep up behind me. ::wink:: How to decide? Well, a lot of times it is what is close at hand. I've been keeping a bottle of LP Autumn in my makeup bag as it's a current fave, so I put it on when I put on my makeup in the morning. I also have a bottle of Chakra Balancing Potion on my desk, and dab it on my temples when I get stressed. Other times, it's a suggestion from one of you on the message boards - you review it, and I think, HEY! I haven't worn that one in a while! And then other times, it is because of the magical properties. When I leave the house, I consider my intent for the day, and pick a potion that corresponds to that.

    Ah, bluepest - if you enjoy that combination, I'd like to hear what you think of Lolita's Kiss.

    Heart of Kapet

    You're totally right, May. This happens often, that a new blend will deepen as it ages after a month or so, when the ingredients truly merge. I've also noticed that Eleven and Bubblegum Robot have both taken on richer more saturated tones.

    Spider Silk

    Funny how we all perceive scent differently. There's not a drop of vanilla in this blend. It is comprised of mosses, woods, musks, and white sugar. A very soft and nurturing combination.

    If you are into having a life reading done for yourself or for a gift, I would like to recommend our friend Raven De La Croix, aka Raven De Lumiere, who has just launched a site where you can learn about and purchase her services online. Raven is the most incredible 'reader' I have ever come across. She's not a traditional 'fortune teller'; a session with her is more akin to a very healing, inspiring, encouraging therapy session that makes you come away with enthusiasm, wonderful ideas about how to take advantage of your strengths, and an improved self image. She is an extraordinary intuitive healer, a very loving compassionate human being. I cannot recommend her highly enough, and if you choose to partake of her services, I know you will fall in love with her as much as I have, and benefit from her natural gifts.
