  1. Toujours Belle is screaming my name. Sexy amber fig? Yes, please!!
  2. I love sweet pea, and this did not disappoint. First on, I got a blast of a floral outdoorsy smell, like a bright spring day. I don’t smell the hay, but I think that’s what’s giving the fresh bite, whereas the lettuce is adding a fresh, mild greeness. There’s a hint of sweetness that I think comes from the vanilla. As it wears on, I get what others have described as powdery, but it has a hint of soap of my nose, like a fine powdery soap. So perfect for spring!
  3. I love this in the vial and first on. It’s such a golden, foody honey with a hint of lemon and warmth from ginger. On me, it almost reads as a foody floral, with that wonderful clean and delicate vibe from the tea rose. But, honey tends to go wrong on me, and it did here as well. However, I fell asleep and then overslept to had to shower in a hurry, so I didn’t get to experience al the stages of this, so i’ll try again before deciding on this one. But it really is such a beautiful golden scent.

    Amethyst Haze

    I smelled this month’s scents without reviewing the notes, and this one was truly a mystery. I had to stop and look it up! It is so seamlessly blended, I truly can’t decipher one note from the other. It is rich, floral, and elegant. I tend to amp oud but not once during the wearing of this did it rear its head. Everything stayed perfectly balanced and like Luna said, towards the end I got a really creamy soapy smell. I went to a garden party yesterday with a bunch of blue-haired southern ladies (it was an experience!!) and wore this on a whim. It was so perfect. I only wish I had worn my LFM with it! It’s early but this is in the lead for my favorite this month!

    Delectable

    This is incredible. Rich and buttery and yes, like some others have commented, almost like pancake syrup on my skin. But then the heady orchid on top...omg. This is to die for!! Despite the richness, it’s still a wonderful lighter scent perfect for the spring. It melds with the skin. It’s very sexy in a languid way. I’d wear it with LFN.
  6. Pheromones helped my romantic relationship along, but to me, it sorta just amplified what was already there. There was no long term aspect of him I wanted to change, so my use is just situational. Like, if i’m in the mood and I know he’s tired and needs a little extra encouragement, Bang will do the trick. Or if I want snuggles and he’s glued to the phone, i’ll get Perfect Match or something with est. Now, it DID change my relationship with my old boss. It was not a good place for me, and sometimes my boss was just plain awful. She asserted her dominance in strange and sometimes mean ways. I decided to show her that i wasn’t going to be walked all over, So I started wearing Leather to meetings. Occasionally Dom or Intellectual Man with cops (someone had that made and I scooped it up on the trading board), but I usually stuck with Leather to be consistent. I kept my demeanor polite but no-nonsense. I kid you not, she morphed into another person. At first she was hesitant, like, “i don’t Know what to think of you.” But after awhile, we kinda settled into a relationship of equals. I mean, obviously she was my boss and I deferred to her, but she stopped all the power plays. Eventually (maybe six months?nine months?) I stopped the phero but she continued react as if I were. I no longer work there but we still keep in touch. I would never have kept in touch with the pre-phero her.
  7. Good call, Luna!’ That’s exactly it. It has the sophistication of Looking Glass with the spicy warmth of fall. It also vaguely reminds me of Karmiel’s Silken Moonlight. I think it’s sheer sweetness and vanilla that make me think of that. It’s very crisp with a creaminess from the cream. The pumpkin is there, but it’s the pure pumpkin scent, like if you cut open a pumpkin and inhaled. And that contributes to the freshness/earthiness I think. I felt like i’d love this one, and I do, for sure. Just in a totally different way than i’d thought!!
  8. I really, really loved this!! This reminded me of a commercial scent i’ve smelled but richer, if that makes sense. I believe it’s the Musk that sets it apart. It’s just present enough to make this seem as if the fragrance is emanating from the skin. Very fresh and clean. The sandalwood is not too overpowering, but it is to die for. This was borderline too masculine on my skin for my taste, but I couldn’t stop sniffing it, so i’ll Definitely continue wearing it. Maybe I can get some on the Marine!
  9. YALL!! Lol. This month I have been testing my samples without reading ingredients. So I popped open the vial and smelled this. A blast of sweet from the Apple, something resiny and wormwood. Good to go! I slathered on a goodly amount, put on a long sleeved shirt and a sweater, and off I went...to church!!! The heat was diffusing the scent wonderfully. I could get hints of the dragons blood, and the apple had faded nicely into the background, just tart enough to brighten the scent. I love wormwood in scents and how they give an antique quality in them. So of course I could identify that. There was something sweet and herbal (turns out it was the laudanum) that was quite pleasant that I didn't know what it was, so it was at this point in the car that I popped up the forum on my phone (I wasn't driving) and discovered that I'd just applied a heaping assload of Sexpionage and left my house for church!! I did my best to keep it from diffusing too much but really, my layers of clothing were MADE for diffusion. I did my best to keep to myself as much as I could. The Marine was the only guy I was in very close proximity to, and he behaved exactly as I expected. Hes an alpha male, but sometimes sexually aggressive heros make him almost shy around me, and that was what I was getting. But the women! My gosh. I was a social butterfly in the coffee hour after church. Once they got in my circle, it was like they just got sucked into my orbit and they couldnt help but chat with me. I got hugged more than I ever have! Marine even commented on it after we left. (He doesnt know I phero.) The scent has dried down nicely into an herbal musky scent. The day is young, and im staying home, so I might refresh and enjoy the stages of drydown that I was too horrified to notice earlier. And well see what Sexpionae does in the confines of my home. Lol

    Boo Berry

    I tried this without reading the ingredients. First on, this smelled exactly as I thought: bright sugary berries. But a half hour later, I found myself in the kitchen trying to figure out what the Marine had put in his oatmeal, and then I realized that spicy goodness was coming from ME!! It doesn’t take over though. It’s just enough to keep the mulberry from going haywire on my skin (as it’s been known to do). The pumpkin and cream make this real smooth. This is very reminiscent of a lot of the pink pumpkin scents of the past but without the pumpkin being a star. I love it!
  11. Agreed with Beccah. This one is definitely fruitier in the beginning but settles into something rich. Whereas Cogar Potion is sparkly like a firecracker, this has the shimmmering sparkle of diamonds. This dries down to something rich, warm, and sexy. At the end of the day, i’m left smelling cocoa and currant, and it is delicious. It’s the winter edition of Cougar!
  12. I’m al late but...yasssss! These look fabulous! Cougar Potion: Panther!!! Gah!
  13. This is a great unisex scent. To me, it leans more towards the masculine, it I am a okay with that and would wear it anyway!! The lavender and linen notes blend seamlessly. I don't smell the other notes but I feel them there. The chamomile adds freshness, the lemon adds crisp edge, and the bamboo is cooling. The citronella pokes out, and it's such an odd. It's against the others. And I totally mean that in a good way!! It's like someone described over in Anti- Piggy. You keep going back to smell it because it's unexpected. I can't get enough!! I think it's what's giving this a summer vibe. I really like this!
  14. Agreed that it is not as fruity as you would expect!! In the vial, I smell a lot of mango. On my skin, it was a flash of mango and then honey. But I tend to amp honey to dramatic proportions. Just now some three hours later, I'm starting to get tea and a hint of something floral. The tea note is very refreshing. I love this with the Levitation; it suits it. But I gotta keep watching to see what this honey is going to do on me!
  15. How did I miss Tyvey's PE?! This is great! In the vial, it was actually very grapefruit forward. On my skin, it was a tropical fruit delight!!! I got mostly passion fruit with some sweetness of the apricot and a touch of tart grapefruit. The freesia added a lush. It fresh floral scent. I didn't get much Rose until well into the drydown. This is truly a good all day scent for me. Early in the day it's vibrant and fresh. Over 12 hours in, and I have a wonderful soft rose with a hint of freesia, very sultry, a nice evening scent. Winner!
  16. I like Cougar for the top three things on your list. I have no qualms with wearing that one out and to work. Perhaps La Femme Mystere for that as well. That one is a little less flirty and slightly more glam, for lack of a better word. I do love Lace for dates. I wore it on my first date with my hubster. For sexy times, I like Bsong followed close behind by Blatant Invitation. Bang is very sexy but with a little more flirtatiousness to it. BI is just straight sexy.
  17. In the vial, I got a lot of licorice. A lot. Enough to make me worried!! But I shouldn't have been. The blend is perfect. There is a blast of it first on,but it quickly settles and you get the creamy yum of the vanilla and butter cream. The name is perfect. You get the light creaminess and then it's like, wait! What's that back there? Dark and sexy, that's what. I actually didn't get any honey til well into the drydown, and it's not smutty, just natural and skin like. This is SCREAMING for some LFN.
  18. This one is fabulous!!! At first sniff in the vial, I immediately thought of the apple in Pomme de Poison, a favorite of mine. On my skin, I got a vibrant punch of raspberry. It's more like a juicy Hawaiian Punch (if it came in raspberry) vibe than candy like to my nose. The raspberry is just tart enough to keep this from being syrupy, and the warm amber adds substance. Maybe a full bottle for me!
  19. So this is my first PE!! I wanted something with ingredients that represented not only fertility, but female energy too. Something to celebrate what our bodies are capable of doing (even if you opt not to!) So of course it needed fig. Other than that, I had some ideas of ingredients but I wasn't confident in how much of what and how they would all work together. I spoke with Mara (which totally made my day!!) and we worked out the ingredients, and oh my goodness y'all! This. Is. Incredible!! This is so deliciously complex and simple at the same time. First on, it's mysterious and smokey. The notes blend together seamlessly. The fig is deep and rich. You can almost tell it's there but before you can grasp it, it slips away back into the blend. You can almost touch the almond but then it goes away. You can sense the pumpkin but it's just out of reach. It's like a chameleon! As it wears on, the buttercream comes out. It against the spice makes this almost milky sweet skin scent that's sort of reminiscent of babies (to me anyway). It's kinda earthy in the earth-mother way, the same vibe I got from New. Finally, it morphs into this delicious foody warm spicy scent, much sweeter at the end than it was at the beginning. It throws a bit at the beginning but the complex notes sit very close to the skin. It's a very intimate frangrance, cozy and comforting. This is everything I wanted it to be but couldn't put into words. I love how it smells, I love what it represents, and I love how I feel when I wear it. You hit it out of the park, Mara!!!!!!!!!
