  1. I SO wanted LP Black to work on me. All the wonderful smells that other people picked up, the name, the beautiful label, etc, On my skin, there was no patchoulli at all. My skin amps up vanilla ( same as it does with cinnamon) to ridiculous levels. I'm afraid on me, the vanilla took over and it turned all maple like. Maple is not a scent I am fond of. Some time back I was sent a sample of Breakfast in Bed with one of my orders and it reminded me of that, only heavier. It just didn't translate to the luscious deep black I was hoping for.

    Vampire Cabernet

    At first, this one was very grapey on me, but once it settled, it really says " Smell me! I'm an intriguing fragrance!" On me,as it fades, it reveals different layers of a truly sensual perfume oil, the grape blooms into a full fledged wine, maybe some woodsy type scent under that, incense eventually chimes in giving it some true depth, and then there is something honey sweet to it. It gets points for lasting power as well. It's very different and I like different very much! Nicely done!

    Purple Pitch

    OK, when I first put this on, I was like WHOA! But once it dried and settled down, on my skin this is a most fascinating fragrance. It seriously isn't just a strong scent, but also seems to have a very strong and complex "personality" all its own... a very cocky confident in itself personality. After about an hour, it smelled *very* exotic. I don't know if Black Violets have a scent, but that is sort of what this one brings to mind for me. Great lasting power too! As I said, just fascinating. It's as if the colors Purple and Black had a baby together
  4. I received my full size creme the other day, and I can not praise this creme enough! PRETTY packaging! Like Bruised Violet, I think I prefer this to the actual perfume oil itself. Just lovely. I really would love to buy a jar of this creme in unscented form so I can use it with various perfumes and not have clashing. I ran out of my usual Norwegian Formula hand cream and used this, and it made my hands feel amazingly soft and smooth. BTW Mara, thank you SO much for the samples of Mistress Christmas creme and Body Scrub. Smells simply divine like a festive holiday celebration.
  5. I did it again Mara. <hides> I just ordered a bunch of samples ( some for me, some for Yuletide stocking stuffers) and am hoping <crossing fingers> I catch you in time to mail along with my V and T Creme. it would be nice to save you some postage.
  6. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU oh sweet and wonderful potion master!
  7. Hi Mara! When I was ordering my creme and trying to decide what to scent it with, I perused the sample section and didn't see it, so I guess what made me think it was gone was my poor vision which is ever worsening! Is it too late to get my creme scented with Vicars and Tarts? If it is too late, then I would love to order a sample vial to add to my order. Just let me know? Us adder onners must drive you insane! I'm sorry! Thanks Mara :msn_red_fox_smilies-09:
  8. I ADORE this cream! Thank you for the sample of this fabulous stuff! I have *extremely* dry skin and have tried many lotions, creams which either sit like heavy waxy grease on the surface of my skin, or my skin just drinks it up and is still on the dry side. THIS cream strikes just the right balance. My skin drinks it up and is left feeling really soothed, hydrated, and NOT greasy. I loved it so much I ordered a jar. I also adored the the V and T scent, just wonderful, but when I placed my order, it looked like this one had already become unavailable? With my current budget I feel destined to keep finding scents I love just in time for them to be solld out and/or discontinued. I get that most are limited editions that you have to grab them while you can get them, but it takes money honey. Discouraging. I just can't keep up. I do hope they bring this scent back. There aren't many that work on me and it seems the ones that do, end up going to perfume heaven, never to return. I do love this cream though and I thank you again for the sample ladies!

    Vicars & Tarts

    Mara was nice enough to send me a little sample jar of the olive oil/ apricot oil body cream and it is AWESOME!!! sighs sadly Another one that worked on me has been retired BUT.. the body cream absolutely ROCKS and I will likely order it either unscented or with another fragrance. Thanks Mara! And my compliments on both.

    NOX 2009

    Thanks Robert! Good to know for sure. I have a really hard time sleeping. I am a night owl, but deep sleep eludes me and a VERY active dream life which keeps me waking up. Get this , last night I dreamed I was in Florida w/ William S. Burroughs and we were talking and he took out his pipe, reached in his pocket to take out a lighter which turned out to be some sort of hand gun and he just kept talking and gesticulating with his hands while he spoke. I was half fascinated w/ listening to him ( he's one of my faves) and half terrified that the gun would go off. It was a trip alright and this was one of my MILD and happy dreams! I will seriously give this a try. Thanks again!

    NOX 2009

    Hey there Dolly, You're right, we do seem to gravitate to the same fragrance types. I SO wanted this one to work on me, but alas it did not work well with mt chemistry. I had never tried the original Nox. but guess I expected this to be MUCH darker than it is. My skin needs really "dark" or it just seems to neutralize or turn icky powdery and do all kinds of crazy things. What I am getting on my skin, quickly turns to a fruity cough medicine type scent (just in time for cold and flu season!) then it just kinda fades out to not much at all. On me, this one disappears FAST. So many lovely descriptions of this one, that I must deem it to be my skin and not the fragrance, but definitely not a happening for me. Keep watching people, since I will likely be putting this one up for sale or trade

    Remind Me Again

    Mara this is a *very* beautiful fragrance. While it was wet at first all I could smell was floral and sharp but it softened down to a soft, musky like, pretty smell. This one doesn't fit my personna at all, but if this fragrance type works for you, then I would reccomend it wholeheartedly.
  13. I was going to try a sample of this one, but after reading what people are saying about it, good thing I read well first. Cinnamon has this tendency to really get crazy and scream out on my skin, stealing the show completely. It works on me in some things if it is not as much of a prominant note, but this one sounds red hot cinnamon sexiness. Bummer! I love Cinnamon and I just end up smelling like a Giant Red Jaw Breaker candy!

    Pie In The Sky

    This is scrumptious. It isn't at all like ordinary, garden variety, drop from the trees on your head raw coconut, it is more like rich coconut cream pie or coconut custard. I am hearing some people say graham cracker, but to me it was almost more like a hint of hazelnut. It's yummy alright. I am not a wearer of food scents, but this is one luscious dessert scent, and if you do like this type, I really think you should try it and decide for yourself. My compliments to the "Chef"!

    Cocamama

    This one was definitely a surprise! By it's name, I expected something chocolately, but this is not that at all. This one is complex to me. I sniff and think, sniff and think. it has leveled off to something that on my skin is sort of sweet, green, and clover like or grassy. I am thinking of the grass Melissa? Now this is not my type of scent but I have to say that this is one REALLY well done fragrance. Reminds me of some sweetgrass fragrances that were popular when I was very young. I wouldn't wear it, but would use it for aroma therapy since it gives me a kind of lift! Still have nose and wrist syndrome going on here.
  16. I agree Tyvey, definitely complex and well blended. Difficult to pick anything out. When I first applied it, I thought I got a quick whiff of something evergreen which quickly gave way to a bouquet of all kinds of lovely "gold" things. It is sexy in a classic sort of way. Not at all dirtied up (or down) if that's what you're looking for. I could see someone wearing this on a cool Autumnal night by a fire, bathed in golden light and snuggling with someone special over a warm drink. To my nose and skin, a very romantic scent. Nicely done.

    NOX 2009

    I ordered Nox and am awaiting its arrival. I am hoping this one translates well on my skin because it sounds sooooo beautiful. Will post again once it arrives and let you know!
  18. I was so psyched about this scent but my skin decided to gobble it up before I could even identify it. So strange. Lasted maybe 10 minutes ( seriously) Just before it did the disappearing act, I got a distinct whiff of caramel, vanilla, and maybe honey. I think this could be just lovely if your skin doesn't eat it all up like mine did.

    SMOKEY KISSES

    This one was a draw for me. I put it on and at first, it just SCREAMED cherries! But.. waited about 15 minutes and on my skin it transformed into just a hint of cherry with a very eastern spelling incense. Reminded me of those Chinese blends that are often seen in Cone form. Not really the incense I am looking for for myself, but very pretty and sexy just the same. If you like cherries and eastern incensey like scents, then I'd say definitely try this one.
  20. WOW! The ladies REALLY delivered on this one. It smells exactly like what it is named for. I am not one who wears any of the "foody" type fragrances, but if you are, or know someone who is a S'mores fan and would like to be what's for desert, then I HIGHLY recommend this one. Someone out there even as you read this is having a fantasy about S'mores. This is the stuff that will bring you closer to realizing that S'more dream. Have fun with this one, it's a VERY fun, yummy, playful fragrance.

    Sand Witch

    OK, had a sample vial of this one. Definitely not for me since I am not into "beachy" scents, but if you are, oh wow.. this one is definitely for you. I love the scent in the bottle, but all things tropical seem to not be in my script. Very nice, just not my thing.

    Sugared Honeycomb

    Let me just say that I ADORE all things honey. I completely forgot that I had a sample vial of this and thought 'Oh wow.. MUST try" I put a bit on and at first all my skin transformed what was supposed to be honey into this horrid greasy smell. yuck! My first impulse was to wash it off FAST, but I didn't. I waited to see what this stuff would do. Glad I did because once that funky grease smell died down, what lied beneath was a divine, sweet, sensual, sure enough, honest to goddess HONEY. Oh yeah... I deem this highly layerable and think it would work well with many of the resinous and fruity scents that I so love. Anything that you'd like to sweeten, but for me, I have to apply it about a good hour or so before it transforms into the yummy honey I love.
  23. Hi everyone, I am happy and very psyched to report my first hit w/ any of the pheromone concoctions! It happened the other day when I was going for a doctor visit. Getting ready for the visit, I had just taken a shower and slipped on the top I had planned on wearing only to notice that it was hopelessly wrinkled from my crowded closet. "great.. now what I thought" I was rushed for time and grabbed a Christopher Walken Tee shirt ( I got the fever and the only cure is more cowbell LOL) I only had it on for a couple of hours the day before. It was clean so I thought ok. Well there was a little residual Pherogirl on it. I caught a whiff when I slipped it on but didn't think anything of it. The doctor's parking lot was crowded so my husband dropped me off at the door. I was waiting by myself for the elevator when this man about 10- 15 years younger than me asked if I knew what time it was. "Sorry" I said, "I don't wear a watch, but it's probably about 11:30." He thanked me then said. "You are SUCH a beautiful woman." !!!!! Um.. whoa. I smiled and said thank you and wondered wtf (?) i was wearing the Walken tee shirt w/ jeans and not feeling at all special. I'm gonna have to credit the Pherogirl for that one and it's the first time I've used any of these without being accompanied by my husband. What can I say but, "Gosh, wow, sense of awe!" Thank you Love Potion ladies, that was nice Gonna make sure i have some of that stuff under any fragrance I am wearing from now on! that was great for my tattered feeling ego.
  24. OMG! Bought this for my husband as a Yule present. I LOVE it! I would even consider wearing this one.. it's kinda creamy, spicy, and greenish all at the same time. VERY well blended and in balance. And here is THE testimonial par excellence: My husband who usually calls ALL fragrances ( even the ones he likes) "stinky stuff" actually really, really likes it. Can't praise this one enough. I will say though, that it took maybe an hour for the scent to settle in and become what it is which is just AWESOME! Many complements to the chef for cooking this one up! Yum Yum!
  25. LMAO!!! Dolly, you're a gem. Love reading about your adventures. Now I recently ordered some Super Sexy Unscented and have some Dirty Sexy, and requested samples of Down and Dirty for Her and Him. I also have some Phero Girl. With all of this on hand, if something HOT doesn't happen, we had better start checking for pulses over here! lol Don't want to break the bed, but hey I wouldn't mind if it took a hit if we had THAT much fun
