  1. This is one of my favorites! It doesn't smell like how I'd expect it to. I don't pick out the cocoa or honey individually because it is so well blended together. It is kind of perfumey and very pretty like a soft musky skin scent.

  2. I usually stay away from anything described as "dirty sexy" since they usually don't work for me but I got a sniffee of this one and it doesn't smell how I expected it to at all! The honey actually smells good on my skin which is not usually the case with dirty honeys. I can smell the cops a little bit before it dries down and it makes it smell somewhat dirty sexy but then it lies really close to my skin and is so subtle. It reminds me a little of Joir de but this one is much much more wearble for me.

  3. I like this way more than I expected from just seeing the notes! It wears very close to the skin and its something you can wear at any time without being afraid of offending anyone. I get a very light cedar over a perfumey musk. It's pretty feminine on me too and I think it's a versatile scent that would be perfect to wear for any occassion.

  4. I don't usually go for dark scents but I wanted to go for something different and this came out perfect for someone like me! It's a dark scent for people who don't normally like dark scents. I get the raspberry the most and it reminds me of the raspberry in Raspberry Rose Confite, but its not so bright because the chocolate and black musk darken it up. The chocolate is pretty subtle on me but hopefully that will come out more with age. When it dries down, the raspberry burns off and I get a very, very subtle hint of chocolate with black musk. I agree that it is not really a foody scent. This is like Raspberry Rose Confite's goth cousin.

  5. This is one of those scents that smells different when you get wafts of it naturally vs when you huff the application points. It reminds me a lot of Wolf and the Shepardess. It's a pastel pink scent but not so clean. It's slightly powdery but not really. All of the notes are blended together very well and I can't really pick out one over the other. Whe I sniff my wrists however, I get mainly rose. The long drydown is very pretty. It is a soft pink girly skin scent. I am also wearing OCCO Pink so that could be influencing the scent but they go very well together. I will have to try it on its own and see how it is.

  6. This came out exactly how I wanted! It's primarily a spicy carnation scent. The pink cake is just a subtle feeling. As it dries down the cake comes out more but it is still not a cake scent. Its more like a carnation scent that reminds you of a cake. I'm so happy with how it turned out and I love it. I think I will need backup bottles.

  7. Now that it has dried down it smells like a clean white floral musk. It has a little bit of a soapy scent in a good way. I like both stages!

  8. The swamp water sounds scary but its not. To me, this is a light aquatic cucumber melon scent. It reminds me of Night of the Fae, but it is a little less sparkly and more grown up. I was iffy on the notes but got a sample for the intent and I'm glad I did because it is one of my favorites of the samples I got.

  9. Bruise Violet - is the patch light patch or heavy patch in the Caramel Rose? I think I might want that and Dark and Vampy because I love raspberry and chocolate.


    I have no idea what the patch is like. I wanted it to be more in the background but I'm not sure how heavy it is. I just trusted Mara to balance everything.

  10. Yup, the sampler sets have been shipping for days. People should start getting them by morning!


    Don't know which one was THE fastest, there have been several that were gone within 2 weeks.


    But the wildest seller ever....Usually, I only make one edition, and that's it, but this one sold out and the demand was still so high, I made it again, and then again, and then AGAIN! FOUR brew editions in a month!


    Can anyone guess which one that was?




    OCCO Ambrosia?


    I was planning on these for sure: Vanilla Bean, French Vanilla, and the dry perfumey vanilla that many people adore. I also have the cakey vanilla under Sugared Birthday Cake, for which I intend to have a "frosted" feel. Any others that you would suggest? I can do a "Bourbon" type by boozing up a vanilla bean oil, but that would be similar to the recently released Nola.


    Can you do a cake batter vanilla?

  12. This goes on very sweet and plasticky. I agree it is like a strawberry creamsaver. After a while on the skin, it becomes less sweet and more like a strawberry musk. I like it better as it dries down a bit.
