Oh, wow, I do love me some lavender marshmallow, but sometimes it can be too sugary sweet for me. This is just fantabulous! The amber and sandalwood give it a dense chewy texture, and the anise adds just the right little bite. Seriously delish! And so, so congruent w/H&S! I thought nothing could be better than my Marsha Mellow boosted w/H&S, but this may rival it.

 

ETA: D'oh! Didn't realize this was TH, not H&S. Still wonderfully congruent.

On a 1-10 scale, how much anise do you think? I am umming and aahing over it as it isn't something I love in perfume but I love the sound of the rest.

Another reason my life is better since getting the Sampler every month. On paper this should be my hands down favorite of the month. It's not. It's not for me at all in fact. I can't even understand what's going on with these notes honestly which is not a feeling I'm familiar with. My best guess is that the anise and the sandalwood are mingling together to make what to my nose is no bueno. I'm sad about that bit with as many other new releases this month I'm sure I'll find other Perfumes to love. Off to rinse off.

Somehow I completely missed the lavender in this. When I wore it I kept thinking, "What IS that odd note?" I thought this was going to be super foodie. On me, this is more of an earthy, dusted with sweetness, scent. Earthy isn't the right word. Grounded is better. The lavender, anise and sandalwood give it a soft grounded feel while the marshmallow, sugar and vanilla dust it with sweetness. Like a cocoa dusted truffle (without any cocoa :lol: ) It's balanced superbly in that it is neither one nor the other but altogether lovely. The lavender isn't astringent in any way. It isn't as forward as in Beautiful Dreamer or scented BB. I had to look at the notes to realize what "the peculiar" note was that I was smelling (and it could be entirely because I'm not familiar with all the facets of lavender). Not the foodie confection I was expecting but VERY happy with my FB purchase none the less! ^_^

I like the lavender-marshmallow thing in the beginning, but that quality doesn't last very long on me at all. What I get out of this one overall is a very soft "white" kind of fragrance, sort of akin to Cuddle Musk but definitely more on the side of powdery/creamy. It ends up smelling almost baby powder-like on me, actually. I could see layering this with something complimentary for a social gathering, for example, since F&L isn't a strong scent on me.

Love this marshmallow forward (on me) but it is extremely light and sheer on me. Cant really smell after 45 min. Will let it age and see if my skin just ate it up during travel shock.

I really do love this, but as mentioned above, it just doesn't last on me :(

 

Wet, I get the lavender and the marshmallow, but drydown is just a soft, sweet scent. I love anise, but I don't get much of it here.

The marshmallow and lavender combination in Friends and Lovers reminds me of Aurora. This perfume however is darker with that touch of chewy anise and earthy sandalwood. It is sweet and warm, very comforting. I just wish the scent lasted longer on me.

This reminds me of Aurora too. I wish I had this in oil form as well.

Halo did this change for you? Or did you not try it again?
