    I'm not a huge fan of lavender and definitely not milk/butter/cream + amber, but this meld is really soft, so the whole fragrance just clouds me with comfort. It's good for a home-spa mood to drain the day's negativity.
  2. my fave! Put teakwood in anything and I'll probably have a love affair. I wanted fruity and bright today as I thought I could handle being extroverted. Paradisi sounded green, but Teakwood grounds this a whole lot - and I need a lot of grounding, so thank god This comes across to me as close to the waters as a small boat tied down to the beach shore not full on salt-in-mouth lost-at-sea I braced myself for ⛵ Sun tanning is as far as we're going today, folks
  3. Petals of Silk is a more feminine version of Vardo to me. Love it! They share Sage and Blackberry, must be why. I am loving this! And what do you know - an hour in, I'm online shopping for loungewear ... I must be wishing to feel even more fabulous and comfortable! Truly the work of LFM

    Petite Baie

    This is a journey within one inhalation! At first, I was mystified. "Ooh, this smells exotic.. which is not the tincture of Summer I want this year.." And then after, "Omg! So Sweet but fresh!" Petite Baie somehow avoids being *too* fresh So perfect - I'm going to make summer meomries with this scent. It's not green, either. I'm not into green scents right now; that's a phase on its own. I don't think one can go wrong with Petite Baie
  5. I've found that one thing which makes me look totally crazy.. My roommate says she watched me from across the room put Zakura on, take a big whiff, then sigh and totally relax like a junkie. Now she's afraid to get hooked on LPMP This is my first day back from a 3-month pheromone break, and I definitely feel the jitteriness! It was teetering on a caffeine fix, but I was still in control, so all good I felt pretty professional in Zakura. Sweet - strictly from the floral Cherry Blossom - but queen~like from Myrrh. I love any floral or feminine blend I can wear Cedar in, too! It's such a masculine note that when added subtly, it gets that protective vibe out there like a Mama bear behind her cub. I feel strong and powerful without being overt. Sweetgrass turns out to be a fantastic add to Cherry Blossoms, providing green backdrop to soft and beautiful, pink flowers.
  6. Unintentionally - Day 1 of pheromone use again after 3-4 months of probation by health! :D Let's see how it goes

    Zakura + Perfect Match

  7. I've been in the mood for some orange scents.. I wonder why that is

    I never like orange scents

    Butterscream Lemon

    This smells like a newly opened package of animal crackers to me, which I love! I spilled more than I expected out of the trial vial and I'm not complaining. I love how much more the graham cracker comes out to balance the lemon because I'm rarely in the mood for strong orange~lemon. Butterscream Lemon is perfect, unique against the other gourmet scents since I'm more often in the mood for a snack than straight up dessert or bakery (I don't frequently feel I've earned sweets until I've completed some grand project for the week). This will be a wonderful pickmeup. Besides, this brings back memories of working with kids or being a kid eagerly awaiting snacks being passed out during elementary school. This energizes me. FB without the calories, plz!

    Boo Berry

    I'm really loving the balance between all notes. I don't feel any are too strong or easily distinguishable and sometimes I really just want berries, but not BERRIES. This is called coherence Sometimes I just feel kind of dark, kind of lonely, like whenever I have to walk in the cold by myself but I have dessert with me which will warm me up

    Cloven Sand

    I am thinking the same thing! I'd love this on a guy, but I love it on myself just as much. I'm a huge fan of oak and this fragrance doesn't overdo it on the spice. Sandalwood and Vanilla do fabulous in rounding the sharper notes out. Smoke is that 'extra' whenever I feel like sending a message, or just a touch of badass. love.
  13. I wear perfume to bring my mnd to the present moment, not to relive a memory

  14. instead of feeling emotions, put on perfume instead. incessantly distract yourself

    UN Audacious

    I'm sorry but I want to chime in and side with StacyK on this one. What you described seems very similar to ODing on me. Go with your gut. It's not a regular feeling you get, and I've plenty of times doubted something was due to pheros until a repeat episode would happen (usually for me repeat episodes are even worse, something like accelerated immune response). Sometimes we want to like a phero or wish we could handle a certain dosage, so we rationalize.
