    Santa Carla 2009

    How is it I never reviewed this until now? This is so different from the first Santa Carla; while the last one was almost bubblegum-sweet over awesome black leather, this smells like deep-fried pumpkin-filled pies. Love it.

    Treat

    Treat brings up such a strong scent-memory for me that I had to get a bottle. Imagine being a little kid trick-or-treating with one of those white plastic trick-or-treat bags grocery stores used to give out free, something kind of like this. By the end of the night, you could open the bag and take a deep breath, and somehow that bag had captured the night: the bare-limbed trees, the dry grass underfoot, the jumble of sugary treats in waxed paper, and, permeating it all, the rich cocoa smell of all that chocolate. Thanks so much for this memory!

    What's Your Top 5?

    Favorite five on my guy: Gothic Xmas. (No kidding--he smells so good in this. One of the best parts of the season!) Blood Martini (You'd think this would be too sweet, but on him the sweetness is rounded out by all those wonderful woods.) David Hess's Maniac for Men (wow, in the way-back machine for this one!) North Pole for Men (Woods, ginger, lovely.) Thane (More woods . . .) Conclusion? My guy smells great in woods. He turns spices and vanilla into gold too, as long as he remembers not to apply after a shower--ouch!

    'Scent Lockets' are here!

    I just received my "basket" locket from the first run. It is seriously beautiful--the picture didn't do it justice! It's also larger than I thought, but that's actually very cool. I'm trying to decide if I want to hang it in my car or in the window, possibly with some really sparkly crystals. Thanks so much for this offer!

    'Scent Lockets' are here!

    Great! (That was a really hard choice to make, too!)

    I'd like a basket, please!

    Unwrapped

    This is a classic. Hard to believe it's four years old! Usually I swap out the scents on my dresser with the seasons, but Unwrapped--in spite of its "cheeky" Christmas label--stays year-round. For Unwrapped, there really is no time like the (Christmas) present.

    Sugared Leather

    Wow, this is fantastic. Prior to this, my favorite LP with a leather note was the long-gone Santa Carla, which I've been hoarding. But Sugared Leather is softer, more rounded, but still unmistakably leather. Sometimes a leather scent can seem too astringent, but SL isn't the case at all. Just amazing. I'm sure it would be great layered, but right now? I like it straight up.

    Sassy Sibylia

    I thought I'd already reviewed this, but apparently not. Sybillia is just a lovely, complex fragrance with (on me) a deffinite "mossy" note. I've always loved it--in autumn, I even sleep in it, someimes with some very pleasant dreams. A complete favorite, with my love for the Sassy one.

    Top Five

    These days my favorites are 1) Flying Potion. I wear this ALL THE TIME. It's just so bright and pretty . . . I'm thrilled it has come back and I'm getting ready to put in an order for a whole bunch. 2) Super for Women. Trying to ration this, as I have only a bit left. But I love, love it so. 3) Sugared Bonfire 4) There's like a "holy trinity" of autumn scents for me: Halloween Moon, Hallowtide, Gianduja. I'm cycling through those about every other day, and I'll be continuing to do so until about Thanksgiving. 5) Gothic Christmas . . . But not on me. It's my favorite thing for my guy, possibly ever. It's so cool to see how big this thread has gotten over the years . . . I still wish I'd started a "top ten" instead of a "top five," though!

    Abby Normal's Dessicated Brains

    This one has aged so well. It's been one of my favorite autumn LPs; I love the autumnal "nuttiness" of the whole thing. I follow several perfume makers, but here at LP I always find my favorite nuts, hands down! (Everybody saw that one coming, didn't they?)

    Hungry Heart

    Rich and kind of awesome. Definitely edible, but on me this is kind of smooth, like a milky caramel that just flows everywhere. Very true to the description. I picked this one out as a freebie, and I'm glad I did!

    EBIL-ish!

    OK, so I still have about 3/4 of my bottle of Carpe Noctem, which sold out pretty quickly if memory serves. Ebil-ish isn't quite the same--if anything, it strikes me as a bit smoother. It's rocking that dark, wicked vanilla thing. If I'd run out of Carpe Noctem, I could definitely live with this as a substitute. And . . . this may be complete heresy . . . but I think I actually prefer it. I'd like to do an experiment wearing each long-term and see how the scent holds up over a few hours. In the meantime, though, I'm pretty happy with the little black kitty.

    New Releases for DECEMBER 2012

    Gotcha! I thought that was how it worked, but with the "specialness" of November I just had to ask. Time to put in my order at last!

    New Releases for DECEMBER 2012

    Really looking forward to that PE. And December scents too! But everything went crazy in November, and I never got to order my November trial collection. Can I still order a November trial collection to go with the rest of my order? I'm sure this is covered somewhere else, but it's exam week and I'm kind of brain-dead. Only a massive holiday-flavored LP order can help!
