    Ivory Cats: Musk du Mog

    How strong is the catnip note in this perfume? I'm intrigued by the musks but I'm a bit wary of the catnip...I don't want to have cats chasing me or anything like that :-)
  2. I really like this one. It's sweet, fruity and fresh which is perfect for spring. It lasts for a pretty long time. It's tart but doesn't that headache inducing sharpness. I feel uplifted when I wear this scent. It's too soon to see effects on my love life and finances but there's still time

    GypsiMoon's Bohemian Beauty

    Is this scent still available? The sandalwood and coconut sound lovely.

    Sugared Red Musk

    This is lighter than I expected. It has the resinous quality but this is definitely sweeter than the black musk. I'm glad I ordered the 10 ml because this is my new favourite. It has a presence but it's inviting and enticing to come closer for a deep, long sniff. I'd like to try this with Sugared Coconuts, Sugared Figs or Sugared Cocoa Butter.
  5. Nice pictures!! Looks like the party was a success.

    Sugared Darkness

    I bought this on Etsy. I wasn't sure about it but I'm glad I took a chance and got it. Overall, it's sweet and lot more powdery and mellower than I expected. The frankincense helps to tone down the sweetness of the nag champa to make it cleaner and fresher somehow. Nag champa is one of those scents can be overly sweet and cloying but this is not the case. This is resiny but not too heavy. This is perfect for spring and a beautiful scent.

    Major Etsy Update this Week

    I just ordered Lorien's Sugared Darkness through the new Etsy special. I'm looking forward to receiving it!
  8. Great article! I shared a couple of e-mails with John (great customer service!) and it's nice to put a face to the name.
  9. I have my eye on Themyscira (the combination of coconut, vanilla and orange blossom honey sound too good to resist) and Cuddle Musk. I'll seriously have to consider a second job to support my growing perfume habit ... more like obsession at this point :-)
  10. Would this particular pheromone be considered okay to wear in social/work situations?
  11. I'm looking forward to placing my order and reading the descriptions.

    Love Potion: Blue

    I keep hearing that this has "blue" sugar or "blue" musk in this blend. What does this smell like? Is it cool and fresh smelling or warm? How would you describe it? Also, how strong is the tobacco and leather in this blend?

    Caramel Musk

    This wears close to the skin and has a warm and elegant quality. It's something that you could wear on all occasions and it's inviting and luscious. To me, it's sensual and feminine. I keep sniffing myself; it's a very lovely scent!

    Sugared Dragon's Blood

    I just got this in the mail a couple of days ago. I was searching for the perfect Dragon's Blood scent and I wasn't disappointed. This is definitely incensey, rich and full bodied scent. I like the way the sugars and spiced caramel emphasizes the natural sweetness of the scent. It also has great staying power; I can still smell traces of the Dragon's Blood on my scarf from a couple of days ago. This would be interesting to mix this with the Sugared Honeycomb but it's perfect when worn alone.
  15. Thanks for the suggestion! I did end up ordering the NOCO Red yesterday because it had the same ingredients of LP Red (which I really liked) but it seemed lighter and less intense without the resins. But I will definitely order the LP Original next time. I really liked the warmth of the vanilla and with the apricot. I also ordered the Caramel Musk and the Sugared Dragon's Blood too. Caramel Musk seems to be a good basic to have and I'm intrigued about Mara's version of Dragon's Blood. I'm waiting for it to be delivered so hopefully I will get it by the end of the month.
