    Corwin w/ Open Windows

    StacyK, Good call...it did lift my mood right away when I put it on yesterday. Corwin is at the top of my list from the November set so far. But I've only tried 5 of the 10 so far...

    Blue Smoke

    I've got to agree with QG for the most part. This smells very good...after a handful of minutes. That Blueberry jumps off the stage to make it's appearance known right away! It takes charge. Then it mellows out depending on where I applied it. In the crook of my elbow the blueberry lasts longer then on my wrist pulse points. My wrists have taken on the North Pole sexiness/spiciness that both luna and QG have noticed as well. I like it better when the blueberry fades. The spices or woods are definitely in line with North Pole, but dang it, I love the Ginger in North Pole too much. Blue Smoke is yum. But having a full bottle of North Pole, I know I would reach for North Pole 5 out of 6 times instead of this. That's how much I like whiffing North Pole!

    NOX w/ Teddy BB

    I ordered this in the Men's Sampler for November as it stated that a man may like this one too. First try was not a winner for me. Smelled very much of a Blackberry incense stick that wasn't burning. Of course as always I will try everything a few times before finalizing a decision.

    Corwin w/ Open Windows

    Hey this is a nice combination. Works very well. Like a powdered lemon. It's got some understated class. Instant goody.

    Edmund w/ SWS

    First try through with this one and I was not crazy about it. It smelled pretty good at the end, but that was a long wait to smell good, like 5 hrs. So, basically when it was dying off is when I liked it. Maybe the SWS is what I really liked. I have learned my lesson though...never give up on a fragrance after one or two tries. I learned that with Elementary Ch.5. I HATED it the first time. I have learned to tame that beast by using a very small amount spread over a large area of skin for me. It's quite nice now. Patience

    Dylan w/ Perfect Match & Hedione

    Tried this one out last night doing errands at home and I like it. Right away there was something in it that gave it a little depth. I don't know what it was. Maybe the musk or the driftwood? The Hedione, maybe? Was it the Perfect Match? Regardless, it really smelled good to me and I think I found out who my Perfect Match is = Me!

    Pashazade

    After using about a quarter of my full bottle roll on, this is still one of my favorites. I too get the clove, but I get a lot of the smokiness and I really like this. I happened to be in a mall the other day and popped into a fragrance store. I took a whiff of a few colognes and I came across one that smells very much like Pashazade. Viktor & Rolf's "Spicebomb." It smelled very good, but I found myself defending Mara and Pashazade. Not to anyone else, just in my own head. Mara, do you have hypnotic ingredients in your products that make us loyal to you? Haha! I'll take Pashazade, thanks. However, I have four different fragrances in roll on bottles and four different fragrances in spray bottles and I have to say that I personally feel the spray bottles are worth the extra $15. Next time it will be in the spray bottle.

    Bad Boy 2015

    So I went on a date from a shitty online dating site. I get there and meet the gal. She immediately says, "You're right. You do smell good!" I forgot I wrote that in my profile. Regardless of which LPMP fragrance I wear I think I smell good. I was wearing Bad Boy. Unfortunately the date lived down to my expectations.. Body type of "Athletic" almost always means overweight. Sigh. She was a cool girl that I could hang out with as friends. But I don't want to offend her with that. This is still very Vanilla-ey with the leather poking through a little. I feel good in my Bad Boy jacket!

    I'm guessing Thursday will be the day the cat comes out of the bag concerning Pheromas for November. Last year it was on Oct 29.

    Hello! So excited for my first order and am open to suggestions!

    Welcome N7. Wow, you've already learned so much it's like you are a seasoned veteran. Enjoy the smells! Florence was awesome. While eating at a lovely place for dinner one night called Ristorante Za Za (still open and I definitely recommend), my Brother and I were helped with the language barrier by two young local ladies sitting at the table right next to us. Good discussions turned into them taking us on a little bit of a local dive crawl followed by smoking something weird on one bridge while looking across the Arno river at the Ponte Vecchio. They treated us to a very fun night ;-) Just a great town to check out. Some places just give you that 'feel.' Florence gives you that 'feel.'

    Out-friggin-standing! Thanks Luna I didn't know this. Last year was my first year on board and felt lucky that there was a full Men's set. As most months there is not. I thought they were all good last year.

    Sooo do we know yet if there will be a full set of samples of Pheromas for Men this November?

    New Releases for NOVEMBER 2014 - Pheromas is here!

    I really enjoyed the set for Men last year. I am hoping there will be a complete set this year too. Lats year's all smelled so good...well except Elementary Ch 5 . I learned that less is waay more for that one. Like one drop. All the others were very nice!

    Leinenkugels beer is from Wisconsin. Best Pumpkin Beer I've ever tasted is called "Screaming Pumpkin" from Michigan. So good

    Bad Boy 2015

    I think I have read enough about the Tonka Tobacum that I would buy a bottle blindly without ever testing it. I did get a full bottle of Bad Boy along with Heavy Metal and Tonka Musk too.
