  1. Caved and ordered a full bottle. Never have I mourned the discontinuation of Gotcha so deeply; this feels like it would be SO congruent! If Pearfection is still around when a similar phero emerges would totally do a boosted spray. This is so soft, creamy, subtle and yet has such substantial presence.
  2. Utterly scrumptious. I need to do a direct comparison with A Wake but I still went full bottle. I love coffee scents and my skin often hates them so this is pure win.
  3. This was the scent that tipped me towards getting the sampler-- I was thinking probably not a full bottle but darn it I really want to try! This is fantastic-- tart green apple and, I do not know how Mara does this, it has fizzy bubbles! I can feel them tickling my nose every time I sniff my test patch. And with the ginger it's like a fab take on classic ginger ale, with that deeply nostalgic vibe I get from certain LPs. It's unlike almost anything I've ever smelled....closest would be that Peach Bellini LP from several years ago? Anyway, very very tempting!
  4. Story time! Last November I moved into my new home, getting out of the heart of town and escaping to the country. The past 11 months have been a delicious journey watching the trees and plants reveal themselves. One of the most delicious discoveries was that a tree I thought might be dead flowered beautifully in spring, and last month delivered a not inconsiderable windfall of gorgeous little pears. The deer got about half but I had enough to cook up a small vat of pear butter. The house smelled like magic for days- ripe pear and spices. So now I'm not sure how Mara captured that whole experience in a bottle, but that's what this does for me! It's got foodie elements but the smoke and woods not only add depth to the scent but allow it to conjure the season in many dimensions-- clear blue sky with a bulkhead of grey clouds building in the west, traces of woodsmoke from the first fire of the season lingering on the crisp chilly air. Wonderful!
  5. Mmmm lovely creamy pumpkin with a wonderfully buttery edge that reminds me of my beloved Pumpkin Souffle! I never would guessed this was a cops cover and I agree with Kayla, it will lend itself beautifully to layering. But also is a treat all on its own. Delicious!
  6. Mmmm, on me this is very delicate, more honey than pumpkin! For something with such foodie notes it actually reads more like a sophisticated grown up scent. As it dries, the pumpkin note deepens and the spice sloooooooowly starts to bloom. This is almost a stealth scent on me, even as the tone gets deeper the throw is very light. It's a wonderful contrast and I think one could get away with this in settings where normally you might hesitate to wear perfume. Just lovely!
  7. OMG! The magic of Weenies.... these are spectacularly deliciously creepy in the best way, and I saved reading the notes until now so there would be something amazing to look forward to during my long challenging day at work. Thank you Mara and Luna and all the lovely people at LP for this fabulous buffet of Halloween wonder!
  8. Mmm I totally get the Skelly Tart too. This is pure lemon goodness. And it LASTS. I've had it on for a couple of hours and it's the same bright gorgeous splash of lemon as 8t was when it went on. Very consistent, utterly delicious.
  9. Ohhhhh my gods! This is like a copped complement to my beloved Siamese Cloud PE! It has that same fabulous pillowy feel, gorgeous slightly camphorous lav on a cushion of cream. I found some bottles of Siamese Cloud just the other day-- will pair it with this and be in creamy cool lavender heaven.
  10. Oh Mara... just opened all my delicious treasures and each was so lovely but got to the last item and undid the gorgeous blue velvet bag and pulled out The Black Cat Tarot and squealed so hard I scared the actual black cat lying next to me!!@ U ARE THE VERY BEST THANK U
  11. Dear Mara, I'm only halfway through my first mystery box and I had to come here and say THANK YOU! Everything so far is magical and unusual and my heart is very full. It's been a rough time while I've been away from these boards, and while it was a necessary and growth promoting roughness, I've really lost touch with my more playful magical self. Every item in my Black Cat box is making me laugh and oooh and I'm feeling little prickles of energy as I handle these beautiful objects that were clearly chosen with such care by you and your wonderful people! I can't thank you enough. I somehow came back to check out the forum the day the boxes thread went up and that does not feel like a coincidence! I just didn't know this was the magic I needed. And now I have to go open some more treasures! I think I'll save my spell boxes until I get closer to the dates for using them--otherwise I might o.d. on magic and wonder. 💕
  12. Love the almond blast! I had forgotten the sandalwood until it started asserting itself in the drydown... it's unexpected and an interesting shift from the initial sheer foodie bliss. It's lovely and grounding-- I'm going to enjoy the heck out of this one!
  13. Had to try this first and yes, I love Luna's characterization-- this is all the mocha I will ever need! I love coffee scents so much and they often go wonky on me but this is HEAVEN. It's dark, warm, purring chewy textured coffee with a whisper of chocolate to keep it from turning bitter... I'm loving it solo but I bet it would also he a great layering note. Reminds me of my beloved Titillating Temptress which is highest praise. Love it!
  14. OMG the LP Box of Everything is here! I've never had such a big order before.... I am trying to figure out if I can make myself open just a few things at a time but it all looks so wonderful, especially the Magical Boxes (which are the loveliest bags) of Mystery!!!
