  1. I wanna be Babs when I grow up! No warning necessary
  2. Well hi there, Chrissy! Yikes, what a read, thanks for leading me to it. I'm not sure why I couldn't find it on my own. So, I've been wearing LP Red for the last several hours after almost giving up on it the first time. To me, it's Gramma's Sticky Buns (heh, I never noted the inference there before..) and maple syrup and French toast with extra cinnamon. It's not bad and is growing on me and I could see it especially during Christmastime and cold weather. That's when I like to do all my baking, too and it's invariably cinnamon-stuff. But I can't understand the male appeal, especially to the point of dangerous. Even with the moose story Do these ingredients, the vanilla, cinnamon, patchouli and maybe maple and resins act like pheromones to men and only good smells to women? Or is it because of my age and I'm just not getting the phero hit off it like I would if I were younger? (I'm a good 10 years past menopause). Or do I just need to put some of this on tomorrow and go to the grocery store and see what happens? I'm thinking of using this rather than PM which was what I was planning on for my Wednesday foray up to see 'the victim' who so far has been running me a merry slightly unrequited chase unless you include verbal devotion. Which I suppose in all fairness I shouldn't discount at all But like I said in my first post, I want to Haunt His Dreams. For one thing, he deserves it!! Bwhahahahahaha... I *did* hunt around and found an old bottle of Love Scent EoW and also PCC; the EoW is as strong smelling as ever, the PCC very pleasant. I'm thinking if I get my nerve up, LP Red (as a test, mind you, only a test; for educational purposes, you know. It's research), with a bit of vanilla and PCCs to make it interesting. Wish me luck. I'm afraid of disaster for some reason. Almost like a student trying to seduce the teacher.
  3. THANKS Ms Chrissy! Reading it now. Love the story about the moose!
  4. Yup, some musicians in their 80s would have really wanted to recreate that 1940s style era I've had that song wonderfully stuck in my head ever since I found this forum. Red LP on a date, huh? I'm getting so many mixed signals from this new guy (and the first real interest in lo these many years!) that I'm not sure what the outcome would be, truly. Maybe I'll damn the torpedoes and wear it and play hard to get myself, for a change.
  5. Ahh! That explains a lot. Methinks LP#7 is one of the lighter of the batches and perhaps a lot like #9. There's no way #9 has vanilla, though. I forget what I read about it but that must be a light citrus or verbena and a resin, combined by a genius. I think between reading forums all day and trying about five different combos now, my brain is OD'd They should teach this stuff in school. Instead of stupid math. Edited to say, not resin, but musk. I have no idea how you did that. You managed to put the smell of a 1940's black and white movie romance into a bottle.
  6. Errr, okay. Could someone explain the 'LP' idea to me? I've got LP Red which is really strong, almost rogue-ish and is going to have to wait until my next reincarnation, possibly. I really can't think of when I would want to use that. There's LP#9 which is lovely and elegant, but alas, I'm not the 'elegant' type. I will wear it anyway and perhaps go shopping for a top hat and tails I have LP#7 which I LOVE!!!! This is gorgeous and a full bottle is awaiting funding. Hopefully it will still be there when I manage to find the coin. And I have Honeyed LP which is lovely; smells quite dessert-y with that apricot slather in there. All that one needs is a willing tongue... But what's the basic LP smell or basenotes? I'm not clear on it. Meanwhile, back to the forum for clues
  7. The 'cops' recommendation has been duly noted. I think the only sample of that I have here is Sneaky Clean, if I remember the ingredients correctly? Or is it the BAM? Back to go check yet again... I like your signature quotes Luna. Yesterday I read something fascinating on a site that was discussing natural treatments for various diseases; "Plants are our ancestors and they are far more complicated than laboratory produced chemicals can ever be..." That realization that plants are our ancestors hit me like a ton of bricks. OMG, how could I not have realized it!?
  8. Lulz. Two Votes for Topper and Cuddle Bunny! There's a porn movie in there somewhere with a Giant Rabbit named Harvey.
  9. Hi Cherie - that sounds like a good combination. All unscented right? So I would know if I reacted badly to them, it was the phero ingredients rather than the smells themselves. Every other time I've tried any commercial perfumes I've been dissuaded by a 'brain thunk' or headache reaction. Most I think just have too many ingredients, upping the chance of an allergy, and also most department store types are synthetics. Aldehydes - Poo! Yuck!! Y'know those magazines that come with scented pages? I can't throw them in the OUTDOOR trash soon enough. I've gotten headaches just from opening the mailbox, ferchrissakes! I like that LPs are mostly naturally sourced except for a few like civet that I know are no longer available commercially. It may be a question of one-at-a-time in the fragrance testing to get a feeling for them. I'm also thinking one at a time in the phero department might be a good idea. Last time I tried this tactic was 10 years or so ago and very little was available both in information and in variety. I'm astonished at how far the research has come, I should have kept up.
  10. This! Definitely This! And this. You know you've found something worth waiting for if daily temptations pale in comparison. And, I think $25 for a meal is ludicrous. I can eat very well for several days on that if I cook at home.
  11. Thanks Luna. I think the 'trust' thing is coming along nicely, what with all the talking, but you're right there since his last relationship seems to have been a disaster. We spend an hour a day on the phone, until the batteries run low LOL. And the in-person part has been rather hit or miss so far. Lots of blatant sexual moves followed by an apology that he 'doesn't want to move that fast'. And telling me repeatedly that I'm 'pretty' and 'adorable' which frankly it's been 30+ years since I've heard those descriptions This one is an odd one but I'm having fun cracking the code. I may have to get my hands on something with both Est and DHEA in it with a side order of Cops. Drowned out in vanilla. I did tease on the phone at one point that I like vanilla smells and when he first got near me, he mentioned I hadn't worn any. He had really been looking forward to it or at least remembered the comment, but I had wanted to see how the reaction was just to 'me' and nothing added. Considering I'm nearing 60 and he's 64, it's complicated by a probable dearth of endogenous pheromones. Things sure have changed since I was 25 and could attract a crowd just by wearing a V-neck sweater and a smile.
  12. Okay, I'm finally going to go see 'the victim' after about two weeks of thwarted plans. And you know your plans have been thwarted utterly and completely when you can't get an hour up North for a day or two because you have serial appointments with an oncologist, a radiologist, a surgeon and a new internist, cuz your *old* internist just went out on a leave of absence for an unspecified period of time... :-/ I've been trying the samples that I have here and think maybe that I can't use anything with a large amount of B-Androstenol in it, as well as any of the honeys or ones with pollen. After several attempts it's a headache each time on the honeys and a kind of dazed feeling, like spring allergies. I have no idea how he'll react to things, but they have to pass muster and not make me feel icky first off. For some reason, the Perfect Match I have here doesn't seem to react badly so maybe it's not the B-Androstenol after all but just the honeys in the others? I also have LP#7 which I love after several wearings and Sneaky Clean with SS4W which I'm not sure about yet. I think I was in OD land with too many scents on by the time I tried that. Will have to give it a clean slate trial...Rocket Fuel was a no-go for some reason, smells like diesel (?) to me but maybe I was just reacting to the name. LP Red wasn't my style smell-wise and I adore LP#9 but it's way too elegant and subtle for what I'm trying to pull off... #9 needs a target like Humphrey Bogart or Gregory Peck; this man is more Teddy Bear/Psychologist. I'm thinking of trying PM with just my own vanilla extract (right out of the kitchen!) as a scent note. I love vanilla, it makes me feel safe and warm and has a spectacular calming effect and seems to work as an aphrodisiac on everyone else. Somewhere on another thread people said not to add in any other pheromone mixes like BAM (with Gotcha?) or Sneaky Clean with PM, that it would be too much, right? And for future reference, is there any blend with DHEA, alpha-androstenol and cops in it? I'm thinking that might be the effect I'm looking for. So whaddaya think? PM and Vanilla straight up? I want him to stop talking like the 'Human Potential Workshop' facilitator that he is, and bring out a little more animal... Or should I go with Sneaky Clean even though it seems to have no effect on me, or perhaps the LP#7 because I love the scent, but without any pheromones? Sorry for the confusion. It's only 9:30 am and I've already tried several different scents. My frontal lobe is not happy with me.
  13. Mmmm!!!! Pithivier! Smells like fudge. Warm hot fudge sundaes. I've had Love Potion #7 on my hand all day and I can't get enough of it. Lovely and light but there's something deep and rich here. This will definitely be a full bottle while it's still available. And I tried Essential Mystique Hydrating water on the other hand. Much more complex, resinous. The smell only lasted a few hours compared to LP#7's long distance run but I like this one too. More of an evening out kind of thing.
  14. Makes sense; blue smells like water and sky smells, green like grass, the forest etc. The 'black' smells to me must be the deepest richest resins and musk, red is, well, RED, screaming red dress in the red light district (ha!) and white would probably be virginal, pure, youthful and light, along with light-hearted, although hopefully with an LP twist of 'gotcha'... I'm getting it...
