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

    I never like orange scents

  2. does anyone check out http://scentury.com? perfume stories!

  3. Hi, everyone!

    Welcome SugarKitten Cute username! Are you experienced with oil perfumes or artisan, or mostly commercial? We look forward to reading your reviews.
  4. 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!
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. I wear perfume to bring my mnd to the present moment, not to relive a memory

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

  9. 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.
  10. All I can say is I'm glad my serotonin levels are perfect. I am fine by myself I do notice I'd rather not ever feel obsessive about anyone ever again. It's so nice to be content. Being in love in a rather disturbing way is not pleasant. Boo low serotonin levels...
  11. I'm super into apple scents recently and the color red. happy February

  12. Totem: Elephant

    What an incredible community LPMP is. Thank you so much for reaching out, you guys!
  13. Totem: Elephant

    I shall miss my sample when it's gone... I just received this as a freebie. This is exactly the aquatic scent I have been looking for! Most have either been too lotus-y (sharp), green, or masculine, or too emphatic on a single note for me to last a full bottle (I'll get 1/4 of the way through). Totem: Elephant captures the exotic oasis scent I have been feeling in the dark for. Reading the notes, I wouldn't have thought aquatic, but now I remember that elephants like to play in the water and drink through their trunks There's a wonderful balance with the berries, grapefruit, and tea to provide feminine wear to this. I like niche fragrances and more unisex notes like Sandalwood, so Totem Elephant including an equal touch of sweetness meets my expectations. If bottles were still available, this would be my go-to scent everyday to work. I'm noticing I like a lot of Mara's 'African scenery' scents. She does so well with the exotic notes and sophisticated balances! I'm really immersed in the experience. I can tell I'd make good use of a full bottle whenever I keep opening my sample to sniff, and whenever my sample is gone within weeks.
  14. Oh my goodness, lavidacabo, that's an incredible story! So many couples would love that last chance at flat-out honest communication. Sometimes I think of beta-androstenol as that "open door." Other times, since it pushes the truth out quite quickly, it can also show you that open door as your way out
  15. Totem: Lion

    I didn't get a unisex feel to Totem: Lion at all :S I love this! This totally matched what I imagine African deserts to smell like. I do get this regal sense of calm, assured, control, like lions surveying their pride and territory, which makes me want to pair it with SWS pheromone blend. I get more of the Sandalwood, Musk, definitely Saffron, and from what I researched on KARU KAROUNDE, I think I can vaguely pick it out as an amazing bass note. It's earthier and deeper than Musk in the 'dirty' department. It's the special ingredient in this perfume really tying this blend together as the African environment. Neroli and Thistle make this wearable as feminine, to me. It re-assures this blend as unisex, also giving a clean and refreshing feel to the dry and hot environment. And I'm glad there's not much Cedar amping on me, just a touch to ground me with its woody aroma. I always like Cedar, just not more than a wisp. I don't want to easily pick it out in my perfumes. I think Totem Lion is a masterpiece. Smells subtly expensive and certainly that it will do what I need it to in the luxury department.
