  1. Ahh, Mara hooked my dingus boyfriend up! :P (and I don't think she knew he knew me)...

     

    I adore my man and have gotten him hooked on SWS, so naturally I would have thought he would enlist my help with any orders... but no, he thought he had it. Fast forward to him finally looking at his email confirmation and getting disappointed that he had missed the sale that the email informed him of (I told him, but he's not used to the personal touch of Indies and just assumed it was a generic order/shipping confirmation)

     

    But this isn't a sad story! An extra bottle was included AND sniffies of pheros he hadn't tried (including Super For Men...mmmm, maybe Mara did know who he is wooing, haha)

     

    So thank you, thank you, thank you from both of us :D


  2. This was my first phero bottle purchase (I think) and will always remain the first scent and phero I felt at home in. I don't use it nearly as much anymore because I tend to use Open Windows for lighthearted conversation and rarely need anything too serious, but several years ago when I discovered LP this was irreplaceable. I've worn it around friends, family, and to therapy; the hits are remarkable, both to myself and others. The scent is so silky, sheer, and elegant...It really smells expensive. I have received many compliments.


  3. Ahh, I always found this pleasant enough but so gentle and sheer that it wasn't really my thing; my boyfriend on the other hand used to adore it on me. He always claimed it smelled like his favorite incense (Satya... I believe Naturals or Superhit, maybe both together). He thinks there may be similar lotus blossom and pink hibiscus notes.

     

    Regardless, skin chemistry has let me off the hook on wearing this anytime soon; it goes totally flat on me nowadays and neither of us particularly enjoy it on me anymore.


  4. Probably will never need more than a sample or two but honestly I've never smelled a perfume even comparable to this scent. I get brownie batter and green herbal notes with spot-on but fleeting whiffs of beautiful crystallized unsmoked bud (not a trace of lowbrow shake here). Very unique and comforting if not a tiny bit naughty. ;)


  5. This is sexy, sexy, sexy; probably my favorite honey-centric LP. On me it's actually a bit more smutty than I am usually comfortable with but the ylang and fig round it out to make it just ladylike enough. It has a silky molten gold type feel to it, if that makes any sense. I don't wear it a lot but I love it.


  6. This one is so strange to me. I sort of get a vague watery blueberry, something clean and linen-ish, and something brown sugar-like? Maybe it's the amber. I love the idea and I get what this is going for but it's just so warm on me, and I was hoping more for a cool mineral type scent. Wherever the warm notes are coming from they don't seem to mesh well with the aquatic notes, so I think something about my chemistry is breaking down an essential element of the blend or amping something it shouldn't.


  7. Ooh, this was just straight bad on me. Even my cats looked over and were like, "What kind of crazy trick you pulling? Choose a species!" It's pretty bad when your cats make a face and run away. :(

     

    I smelled like a back alley frequented by tom cats. Bad bad bad.

     

    I am assuming the civet hates me because it often does.


  8. Every once in a blue moon I pull out my little sniffle of this and retest it. It's very lovely and has always reminded me a bit of With Every Breath which was a long standing favorite that my chemistry no longer accepts. Currently this perfume fairs better on me than WEB, but is lacking the certain something that made it so special on me.


  9. Everyone knows that I love me some lavender so it should be no surprise that this was one of the first potions I ever bought. Unfortunately something just always seemed off when combined with my chemistry, like it amped the butter, honey, and pastry notes to an obnoxious level and totally obscured the delicious lavender and fruit jam blend.

     

    I am curious to try the newest version to see if I get the same drydown.


  10. This scent smells expensive and spa-like; crisp yet cozy, leaning more towards the masculine side. My best guy friend told me I smelled like his Uncle Yunk getting ready for a night out on the town. Uncle Yunk used to wear suits that resemble 70's couch upholstery.

     

    Not my favorite connotation.

     

    I still kept a sample of the original and wouldn't hate smelling the latest version though, Yunk be damned.


  11. I'm so sad because this was a staple for me; it took about a half hour for the jasmine to settle down a bit and meld with the other notes, but the end result was always a beautiful, clean, and comforting drydown that garnered compliments. I stalked the online trades and snagged all I could, no matter the price.

     

    And now... it just smells empty. A change in medications and birth control has destroyed the beauty it once became on me. I've kept about a half bottle for myself to retest periodically in the future but as more time passes I know I may eventually have to admit that our love affair is over.


  12. This is a fun one that nobody seems to like on me but I don't care because I like it. Zesty tart lime sweetened with pink sugar... this is my kind of candy store. It's unusual which is why I think people double take, but it's so youthful and energetic, like if it were a color it would be neon.


  13. Mmm, this smells like the rosewater and rice pudding from the Indian restaurant that always gives me a little dessert cup! The cardamom is so warm and mutes the coconut to the point where it reads more like vanilla on me. So smooth and unique.

     

    My best friend's little sister said I smelled like the best vanilla ever when I got in her car. I was just trying to see if the scent triggered any kind of recognition from my friend who married an Indian man in a beautiful Hindu ceremony. This scent really reminds me of her :)


  14. I have no idea how this dries down because my sniffle punched my nose out and sent a nail through my skull.

    The bad thing is that it keeps showing up in my home. I need a restraining order.


  15. I normally hate violet (not sure why; I like eating the candy but not smelling like it, and I ALWAYS end up smelling like it). This is by far the most wearable and prettiest violet I have ever tried. I don't get a lick of almond which is great for me, the violet doesn't even hint at dusty treats, the chocolate is dense and realistic , and the berries brighten everything up.

     

    Very yummy.


  16. I really ended up liking this scent, which is crazy because I kind of hate roses but enjoy rosewater. I also like floral gourmands but typically prefer them to be more floral and this scent js definitely more spicy and foody to me... but I also love cookies. I kept waffling over the years on whether or not I really liked Rose of Shrewsbury, testing a bit here and there... then just as I finally decided to sell it, I realized the bottle is pretty much gone! So, I guess that answers that question. :P

     

    To be fair, I also tend to save little sniffles of PE's that have blended with roses and cookies and have the same internal debate, every time.

     

     


  17. I adored my little sniffle enough to order a sample but quickly grew tired of the chocolate which had a tendency to read artificial on me. I did love the brightness of the orange blossom and even though it stopped working well on me I still associate the scent with happiness and youth.


  18. Huh, I thought there was almond in this. Good; almond is scary.

    This actually surprised me when I retested it. It's really very pretty and normally I like floral gourmands but this leans just a tinge too much on the foody side for me. Really nice though, if that's your sort of thing. The fruitiness really melds everything together.


  19. 2012's version w/Perfect Match became quite the pleasantly sweet yet unisex scent once I acquired the taste for it... or perhaps the sweetness mellowed and aged over time. 2014's version with B2.2 seems downright densely sweet and cloying in comparison, but damn, B2.2 rocks and I think this is the only potion I own with it. Hopefully the sweetness will mellow over time again with this one, but to me there is a significant difference between the two versions.


  20. Haven't looked at these reviews recently but when I think of this scent I think of dank cellars. The spooky, cave-like cobwebby mildewed ones like my mom and dad's that always gives me an allergy attack.

     

    I was hoping for more of a wet stone smell, but this is full on "get in the basement kids, a storm's a coming!" Awesomely evocative but not wearable for me personally.


  21. I remember this being a well blended clean unisex scent that just never really resonated with me, though I can easily see it's appeal.

    Violets are one of those notes I would wave hello to in a crowded cafeteria but would not choose to sit next to if I had my preference.

     

    And yay Cheesy! I'm glad it went to a home where it will be appreciated :D


  22. I was pretty impressed by Masked Man but apparently not enough to keep a sample of it, which I sort of regret. If I remember correctly it just leaned a tinge too sweet and clean for my taste.

     

    Steamy Daydreams somehow ended up in my charitable donations pile for my boyfriend, but screw that, he has enough toys. This is mine now.

     

    So sexy and smooth... just a hint of sweetness and a wallop of rawwwrrr sexy...and while I think it would be absolutely fine if not gorgeous on my man, it just really doesn't seem like something he'd wear. That's fine by me; I love me some unisex blends, and damn, I have no problem smelling like I'm having a secret affair with this rugged gentleman. ;)

     

    Seriously though, this is cozy and classy with a bit of edge. Truly unisex if not leaning towards masculine. Kind of gives me a comfortable dad vibe, like not exactly like my dad because that would be gross and weird and he doesn't wear cologne, but like a young man who may be a new father, or something reminiscent of a strong and safe older male family friend. Weird evocation but something about this really reminds me of childhood, safety, and hugs.


  23. I personally never really resonated with SWS but my boyfriend would probably love to have a bucketful available at all times. Since he started wearing this (approx.. 2 1/2 years ago) he has been promoted several times and given many job opportunities that other workers have not been given. His coworkers love him and he has consistently impressed many higher ups; not that these things wouldn't or couldn't happen on their own, but there is definitely a noticeable edge when he wears this phero.


  24. I originally snagged a sample of this for myself because I love Open Windows and masculine scents but gifted it quickly to my boyfriend when I realized this wore too sharp for my tastes. He didn't try this until recently but was quick to compliment the scent once he did. He had never tried OW before and we are still not sure if he likes it, at least in the workplace (he usually uses SWS and mentioned his bosses seemed to avoid/stink eye him a bit, but he had missed several days of work. There has been tension in his workplace where he is currently trying and somewhat successfully climbing the corporate ladder, though not in a "typical" or expected fashion.)

    He is normally fond of clean non-musky scents and I adore edgy atmospheric scents; between the fresh aquatic notes and the smoky earth connotations, this hits a rare and beautiful balance we both can enjoy.
