  1. Gah!! The texture and scent of this are extraordinary. I’ve never felt anything quite like it. I have been using it as a wet-skin lotion after showering every morning, and that is perfect for me - it seals in moisture like nothing I’ve ever used and I feel like it’s even keeping me warmer than I’d otherwise be this winter. It has practically eliminated my various little wintertime eczema patches. It’s intensely scented and it morphs like a perfume throughout the day. The first day I used it, that night I was out to dinner and kept catching wafts of crème brûlée, as though someone were burning the top right next to me, and kept looking around and couldn’t see any, and it wasn’t even on the menu. The next day, late at night and at home I smelled the exact same thing again wherever I went, and thought I was losing my mind. Finally dawned on me to smell myself and yup, it was the extreme late drydown of this lotion, throwing like crazy, like 14+ hours later - both days I hadn’t worn anything else scented. It’s totally delightful.

    Elementals: Air

    GAH THIS IS HEAVEN SERIOUSLY IF HEAVEN DOESNT SMELL LIKE THIS WHATS THE POINT ETA ok to try to be slightly more useful... This started out gorgeous and just got gorgeouser as the day wore on. It lasted surprisingly long —12 hours plus. Wet, I could’ve sworn there was some sort of translucent white flower note – the hedione I guess — but as it dries it becomes indescribable - it has an air (ha) of having always existed and that it will forever exist. It is THE paradigmatic skin scent to me: if I were an eternal being I would require this to be what I naturally smelled like. Well, this review hasn’t gotten any more useful. But I need more. ETA pherowise this would be wonderful with lfm, pm, a-nol, levitation, OW, th, pop potion, cougar .... swoon

    I got no coffee ? i just amped the resins to exclusion of everything else and it was very solidly masculine on me. That was wet - being impatient I immediately smeared it with sugared coconut and got phero like hits from male friends all day
  4. If the stakes weren’t so high I’d be tempted to suggest trying Leather- or Dom-ing her just to see what happens ? I’ve sometimes found that it tames such people - makes them respect you. But for a one on one dinner with stakes, certainly too risky.
  5. @Beaux PM and (if rather more aggressively) BI make me focus too.
  6. *obscene noises* 8 for 8 on loving these OCCOs but this one... I don’t like Indian or Egyptian musks but this is indescribably good. It’s sweeter than I expected, and the vanilla isn’t that obvious on me yet though it’s sill drying down. The cops smell didn’t fade in zero seconds on me the way it usually does- took a couple of minutes *gasp*. Of course it reminds of sensual harmony but perhaps a bit more unisex on me. This seems to just beg to be layered with other things - first to mind for me was sugared black pepper but as I think about it I can’t think of anything it wouldn’t go well with.
  7. GAH THIS IS SO GOOD it’s filmy, like a gauzy veil. It is very sweet on me, which I love. Candied flowers!!! It is the scent equivalent of sighing with contentment and swooning gracefully onto an embroidery covered divan with the many-layered skirt of one’s silk gown floofing all around one. Instant love
  8. Thank you LFM, the snob de-gooifier. Had to socialize tonight with 3 people who ordinarily ignore or look down on me for various reasons, and tonight (with only a little elbow grease on my part - which by itself hadn’t been enough in the past, btw) ALL of them were MUCH friendlier and two of them even showed interest in my existence by *asking questions about me*, which in the past they had extremely NOT done. (ETA 1 of those 2 was a straight dude and the other a straight woman. The third is also a straight woman but quite shy and I have never seen her ask ANYONE about themselves so her greatly improved friendliness was itself a huge win.) It happened to be in the form of PIROUETTE, which is aging so fabulously. It had a sharpness before that I liked, but the edge has come off that. It’s still big and very sweet now.
  9. Oh! The whole reason I came here though was to comment on what a great social the OW was for me - great selfies (relaxed, confident, being totally myself) and someone who usually is polite enough but I’ve always sensed thought he was better than me - enough so, that he felt talking to me was doing me a favor - was fascinated by me and kept seeking me out to initiate conversation, which he has NEVER done in the many years I’ve known him.
  10. Mmmmm love. I’ve enjoyed this all along but today I was in the mood for some cops and I smeared it with Amazonian Zee and I have sniffed my arm off

    Tyvey’s Hollywood Candy

    @ halo I know!! It’s a million times more than the sum of its parts, right? If it weren’t my PE I’m not sure I’d have been able to identify ANY of the notes. I don’t generally tend to prefer straight up florals so even as I was writing the invoice email I was like “what am I doing” lol and didn’t have a very clear idea what it would smell like or what I myself wanted, but as usual PM knew. She always knows.

    Tyvey’s Hollywood Candy

    IT IS EASILY A PERMANENT TOP 5 EVER. In the potion and the picture you so totally nailed the feeling and mood and even that cool dry luxuriant feeling of early evening drinks on a patio in LA. It’s heaven.

    I have no idea what’s going on with the wacky font size changes there
  14. I’ve had this for almost two months and it has just about killed me this whole time to not come on here and fling myself to the ground shouting and weeping over how much I love this perfume. My description was: “heliotrope; a lick of your softest, creamiest, most skin-scent-ish, & LEAST heady tuberose; hedione; all smothered with a dump truck's worth of white sugar” It is incredible how precisely Mara captured the intention, and yet what she conjured is a 3D, no more like 8D version of it. What I wanted only so much better. She even chose a label that shows the exact time of day that I put together the notes for this. Terrifying I was at a window at a hotel in (SURPRISE) Hollywood, looking out over the city being its maddeningly lovely and elusive and glorious self at not-quite-dusk, and I had just put on the hotel’s lotion, which had heliotrope (which I love - it’s so fruity and desserty on me) and tuberose (which is iffy on me) but it was kind of ruined for me with a too-sharp lemon, and a fig that took it sideways, among a bunch of other stuff. So in my mind’s nose I pumped up the first, dampened and smoothed the second to its least pointy possible self, threw out the rest, added hedione because I am severely addicted to it and it seemed it’d play nicely with those two flowers, and then pictured turning it into a translucent jewel-like hard candy. I hadn’t said that last part in my order, but clairvoyant Mara made PRECISELY that: a 35 carat emerald cut amethyst candy; luxurious and glittery and gorgeous and just a little intimidating It has a decadent, roll around on silk sheets, very self-indulgent feel. WARNING: it is seriously addictive. I have worn it at least once a day every day since getting it. Excuse me as I need to go put it on again.
