    Sweet Pea Cupcake

    Thank you, Luna! Guess I'll just have to try both! 🤪

    Sweet Pea Cupcake

    WOW. I am so in love with this. I don't know what I envisioned, but it is so much more than the sum of its parts. It's absolutely delicious without being overly sweet or foody. Just perfectly light and fluffy and dare I say refreshing? So fitting for the summer storms and horrifying sauna of humidity - I want to smell lickable but don't want to wear anything that could be construed as sticky - this is just lovely. Can anyone enlighten me on how this compares with Fairy Cake Sweet Pea?

    Indiscretion w/ TMI & Cops

    Really digging this. I know there's no spice in here but I'm getting spice - something like clove and orange peel? Dunno what's causing that (maybe the way the smoke is playing with the pumpkin), and normally accords like that make me nauseous, but this just feels very yummy and comforting. It's rainy and grey and a bit chilly here today - this is the perfect shroud while I burn some incense and cozy up by the window. I get a lot of walnut and creamy smoke at first which I absolutely ADORE - kind of wish it would stay there, but the dry down is also pretty darn delightful. It gets louder and throws more the longer I have it on. I smell the cops a LOT in this, but I kinda like that little bit of funk. Wish I had snagged a FB - I can anticipate really craving this in the fall.

    Compromising Positions

    I feel like I'm constantly up in this thread but seriously, I cannot extol the virtues of this enough. It is flat out insane and dangerous how effective this is both with my man and with the selfies it gives me, not to mention how utterly and entirely delectable the scent is. Anytime I wear this I'm a maniac with my arm glued to my face, and once I get a whiff, well... mama gotta find some playtime stat. And yes, the O's are better. I don't get nearly the same effect with UN Sexpionage either - it's all about the blend. I'm almost all the way through a full bottle, and that's saying a whole hell of a lot considering I own over 1,000 fragrances, I only wear it at home (because Sexpionage), and I've had the bottle less than 2 months. I have never gone through a scent faster than this! I simply cannot get enough! Properly addicted.

    Laloo w/ Popularity Potion

    Do you guys remember Petite Nate? When I was a kid I had the sparkly skin "lotion" that was more just like a thin gel, and it was my prized possession (I wasted no time starting my scent obsession youuuuunng, I had the Tinkerbelle perfume too, and filched my mother's tiny collectible Yves Rocher bottles on the regular). On my skin this smells exactly like Petite Nate. I'm frankly amazed I even remembered the name of it, but one sniff of this shuttled me right off to the corner of my brain that stores my toddling-around memories, feeling so sophisticated and chic slathering the "lotion" on after a summertime bath, lounging in the backyard with my parents eating Flintstones Push-Ups, picking mulberries, trying to convince my grandma to swim with me in the pool, catching fireflies in a jar. The smell and feeling of this makes me so so so so so nostalgic and happy. I don't even know if I'll be able to wear this on the regular simply because it's so evocative, I'd just spend the whole day smelling myself and staring off into space in a daze of time travel. But for the coming hot lazy evenings of summer, those nights when I just want wine, the sunset, and a long fluffy mind trip, this is going to be the perfect treat. Thank you, Mara, for taking me back to some of the happiest memories of my life.

    Love Potion: Black

    This. Is. Awesome. I'll have to come back and do a proper review later on, but I just put this on along with OCCO Black for the evening and have enveloped myself in a cloud of divine lusciousness and HAD TO TELL SOMEONE!! I'm in love with myself. Seriously LPMP should be a required resource for any self-love program. I want to seduce myself.

    Thanks, girl! This one is dangerous and distracting - I have so many beauties to sniff through from the sampler but it's been sweater weather here for the last few days and all I want to wear is this layered with OCCO Black and slink around in dark corners looking for a makeout. I'm a monster and I can't be stopped...

    Thanks Halo, I will definitely give this another - measured - go under better circumstances! From all these great reviews, I'm not giving up that easy...

    La Femme Noire

    My period was a surprising few days early this month and not knowing that, I made the mistake last weekend of wearing this a few days before. Wow, was that a big mistake. By now I know Est and I don't get along but I was enjoying the after effects of a Sexpionage night and feeling cocky had a Pherotine vial I hadn't tested yet and thought, what the hell, maybe the other elements will balance it all out, -none and I get along pretty great. Being an UN, it's entirely possible I OD'd on the dosage too, not to mention the raging hormones that create a stampede of havoc in my body when I'm PMSing, but needless to say it was not a restful Sunday. I was zonked out all during brunch with the in-laws, and then my man wanted to take a jaunt around town for Earth day, and that mix of sun and champagne and PMS and LFN somehow turned into a weeping existential meltdown. Whoopsie. Now that I think of it, the one time I wore LFM in Sensual Harmony, I felt wonky too. I got great hits that day, but I felt off and cranky and sad. Maybe I'm using too much. Or maybe I just oughta lay off these two and stick to my dom blends?

    Oh dear, I think this one is too sweet for me. I def get the syrup, it's more or less all syrup on me. Makes me feel as if I've eaten 4 stacks of pancakes naked, and one of those stacks I rubbed on my body. I felt sticky and full, had to wash it off. On the other hand, if ever I'm trying to curb a craving for pancakes I know what to reach for!

    Yay! Finally a honey I can wear!!! Sugared Honeycomb and Pherogirl go all stabby powder on me. Even LAM original is too much for my skin. But this! Deep and round and heavy like the weight of a water balloon about to pop. 12 hours later it's still going relatively strong, softened into a gorgeous fleshy sweaty-sweet skin scent. I am learning I like stank. I wish I could have tried the infamous Jouir De!!! Looking forward to experimenting with different layers with this - aaand of course test driving on the husband.
