    Black Velvet Pumpkin

    Sniffing this wet was like someone throwing a pile of autumn leaves and caramel popcorn in my face--You like autumn, punk?!? YOU GOT AUTUMN! Oh god, I can't imagine a more perfect fall scent!! I'm a sucker for pumpkin scents, I loveeee frank&myrrh, I love patch, I love smoke, I'm starting to realize I love maple... it's so warm and resiny and DELICIOUS! It's just perfect. Wearing this has me feeling like I'm walking around on Halloween night, bundled up nice and warm with a hot drink. Not a deep dark scent, more like candlelight... (from a jack-o-lantern perhaps? ) I need a FB, no question. This is gonna keep me warm all fall and winter (which I really need because I'm such a weenie in the cold). LOVE IT!

    Universal Antidote

    Wow... it's really hard to describe this one! Ever squish damp soil in your hands? Just big handfuls of soil... digging in the earth with your hands... It's not a "nature" scent, more "warm and cozy at home" actually, but it reminds me of being in nature somehow. The actual scent is creamy and not-too-sweet, the fig 'feels' kinda mossy, just in... scent texture? (what does that mean?!) I never thought I could like fig so much! After sniffing it the other day the vial got some on my hands, and I kept stopping to ask myself, 'what is that delicious smell?!' so I knew I had to test this one next. Mmm, I love LPP, it's been so long since I could enjoy any new perfumes. I have to make another order before I go back abroad

    White Velvet Pumpkin

    Delicious! I love milk/cream scents. At first I got a lot of the pumpkin, very autumnal... fresh, but a little crispy, and kind of fluffy... after a full day, it's really soft and sweet, mostly creamy sugar with only the ghost of pumpkin, and just a bit too earthy to be edible. Maybe it's the oak moss? I'm very familiar with the rest of the list, but I've never experienced oak moss before.

    Love Potion: Homme

    Ohhh, I just tried this one for the first time and I love it. I can't distinguish the scent of coffee, but I probably smell like coffee most of the time anyway so that's not surprising It's sweet and delicious, but not overwhelmingly so. I can definitely feel the sweet LP base, but the woods rough it up just the right amount, and then smooth it over again... but not too much! On me, it's very "neutral," not striking me as either masc or fem... just warm and yummy, even from first swipe. Possibly my favorite of the LP variants I've tried.

    Lol holy crap! I really WAS a baby! Of course I wouldn't have shared my age at the time but ahem... thanks LPMP for being good to me way back then...

    Haha I'm sorry I truly have no idea! To be honest I'm not sure that I would even recognize myself since my memory isn't the best. It was around the time I was a senior in high school (2009) (I was a baby, I know....) maybe through my first year of uni, which as you can expect dramatically reduced how much I could spend on 'extras' like perfume :-) I do remember being around for the introduction of phero blends, hmm... Well, I don't mind starting over. But I did want to share my well wishes! Nice to meet everyone for the first or second time

    Hello! I was a member of the forum several years ago. I've completely forgotten my old forum name, but I wanted to come back to say that I hope everyone is doing well! It's amazing how many active members I still recognize. I admit that it's unlikely I will be a very active poster, mostly because I'm abroad for work and find it hard to justify shipping too much from the US when I'll be shipping it all back in a few months, and all the blends I own are from around... yeowch, 2010, give or take? (still holding up beautifully, by the way, though I do make it a point to be careful with them). I'm only just now starting to seriously run low, though I wear them all the time, so I'm eyeing the site again... making future purchase plans, you know, now that I'll be able to justify it to my bank account...... I probably won't be able to do much aside from gush with jealousy over all the lovely blends coming out every month until I'm home. But I'll certainly enjoy reading all the reviews :^) Today, I'm trusting the New Year to ye olde Plenty. Here's to an abundant year for all of us
