  1. At first this version seems different because it’s mango heavy. Which I love, then through various stages I catch whiffs of other notes like the passion fruit, coconut and ginger and of course cherry and chocolate. In the long drydown I get more patch in this version than usual so for that reason it’s not a full bottle for me. But the mango, cherry, passionfruit are sooooo yummy.
  2. Hmm This might be my favorite version of Darling Catalina. I love orange citrus and the opening soft blast is delicious. It soon fades though and leaves behind a true vanilla cupcake. The cake aspect amps and amps but never gets cloying or overwhelmingly sweet. The extreme long drydown is fabulous though when just a sweet Skin like remnant remains.

    Cananga Coco Cacao w/ Aja-Summer 2018

    The ylang did come out just a bit more in this after long drydown and the Aja came in big time to add considerable sweetness. Unusual really for Aja to not appear til this late in the game but quite a nice surprise👌🏼

    Leisha-Summer 2018

    This is my favorite of the summer releases so far which is funny because I initially put it into my no or maybe pile when I first sniffed them all from the Vial. Then realized it was the one I was most looking forward to. So I went back specifically for it and upon smelling it again from the Vial it struck me as being perfumey. Wet it does smell a bit perfumey but that part changes fairly quickly. It’s sweet sticky figs with spice and resins. It smells a good deal like Exotica to me Fig wise. And it smells like incense. But no patch in this one. It may be the Musk that is reading perfumey on me. In any case I love it. I’m not getting much sage which is good for me. Erin’s Hot Honeyed Fig was my first hardcore LP Love all those years ago and this reminds me of that mixed with Exotica which I also love. I’ve slathered this beauty at least 10 times in the last few days.

    Evening Breeze-Summer 2018

    Evening Breeze is really really pretty. The florals are elegant and cool. The greens are watery and refreshing. Together they remind me of what a $2000 a night hotel’s shampoo would smell of. Not quite laundry, not quite soapy but what a very expensive spa type of place would have as their house scent. Luxe.
  6. I don’t typically love peach so when I like one it really stands out. This is that standout! It’s just bright tangy peachy goodness. It’s not that ripe or juicy though so I agree with Luna saying green peach. I get a bit of the tiare but it’s exceptionally well blended with the sandalwood creating a soft grounding framework which works well as the brightness of the peach fades into a softer more gentle peach.

    Cananga Coco Cacao w/ Aja-Summer 2018

    Wet this Cocoa Butter is exactly the same as my Angelique! It’s definitely the most forward note. I get the coconut as well as it starts drying down and it’s melded so completely with the cocoa butter that they really merge into one Coco/Cocoa Note. The ylang is very light on me but just ever so slightly there. It’s not really reminding me of Sweet Little Pussy at all because the musk in that one just made it smell completely differently than this. I can barely detect the myrrh or Aja but just there is a bit of grounding and deepening going on. The ylang is coming out more and more as it dries but I’d like more. I have a feeling that it might come out more after travel shock has worn off though. I’ll be back to update if the super long dry down changes this significantly. Perfect summer perfume!
  8. OMG you guys buy a Soap Cutter!! They are only like $5 on Amazon or at Michael’s if you have the weekly coupon. I use mine constantly for my biz and it’s great for cutting wax as well as soap. I have the wavy one that makes the soap chunks look really pretty too so an added bonus! Also if a soap is that hard to cut that you need a butchers knife then you can generally microwave them for 5-10 seconds at a time depending on size. I would not do it long at all for glycerin soap though.

    Time Travel: Somewhere in Time

    We used to sell a liquid silicone that you could apply before your perfume/pheros and it could help make your perfume last longer. I had decent luck with it, sometimes it helped a lot, sometimes not much. Also sometimes ones that fade quickly one develop into ones that last longer or are not so light wearing on me. I don’t think it’s only a question of aging in my case so it might be a skin chemistry or hormone level fluctuations issue.
  10. I just got my package and I’m so excited!!! SQUEEEEE

    Exceptional Treat is right! This collection is STUNNING! I have never put so many into my Yes pile just from my initial sniff from the Vial upon arrival. If you are on the fence about ordering the Sampler, just do it. Amazing month to try them all and you just can’t tell until you actually smell them. Bravo Mara!!!!
