So I did the quick "sniff-thru" when I got my hands on my sampler pack tonight (yes, all 19 of them!) and I kept coming back to this one. Without reviewing the notes, out of the vial I guessed fluffy marshmallow, citrus, and berries and that's exactly what it smelled like for the first ten minutes, just heavenly! Then like a magic trick, the rose emerged out of nowhere and I was a little concerned that it would take over but it didn't, it melted in with the vanilla and became sheer and creamy. And I love how the musk and white patchouli basenotes are keeping this lusciously sophisticated. Absolutely adore! :love:

I also just received my sampler pack and did a quick sniff-through just smelling the vials and prioritizing which ones I want to try first on my skin. This was one of 3 I picked out as top priority, and it won out over bad girl and snugalicious for the one to try tonight. The latter two were fairly predictable for me to like, but this one was not, because of the rose -- rose often amplifies on me, and often (not always) ends up smelling old lady on me.

 

Wet, it has a very fairy princess kind of feel to it. The fruit, musk, and vanilla make it smell like a perfectly melded, innocently sexy, understated skin scent before it ever even hits my skin.

 

It is drying down now and predictably the rose is amping. It is starting to take on a very fresh, clean, shampoo-y scent that is still very pleasant. But still, veering away from the direction I thought it would take.

 

And now, 15 mins or so after application, it is a very soft, youthful, feminine fragrance that is mostly fruit and rose. Very lovely!

I finally ordered my sampler and can't wait! Hope the rose is more forward and the grapefruit doesn't get stabby!!!

I love the idea of this one, as I enjoy fruity florals and on paper it's a fab combo, but the pink peppercorn just amps like a mofo on me.

:A002:

 

On me, this actually ends up smelling more like what a guy would like - grapefruit and pepper - than the cute girly thing it is for everyone else. There's a bit of rose on top, and I'm kind of enjoying this but...it's weird. I'll give it another chance in a few weeks.

 

ETA: in the long drydown I get more of the rose which is really nice, actually.

Eep I've been slowly working my way through the sampler set and was looking forward to trying this because grapefruit is one of my favorites, but I think I'm actually missing it from my set? I went back to look for it specifically, then when I didn't find it, I counted through my samples and had 18. D: Went through the box it came in too with no luck...

Tangy pink grapefruit and beautiful red rose given a faint blush of strawberry, a pinch of pink peppercorn, then swirled with rich Bourbon vanilla and buttercream and just a wink of tangerine, layered upon white patchouli and sheer flowery Asian musk

When I first applied this at home this morning, I was getting a honey scent - so weird... I brought it to work with me, and reapplied just now. This time I'm getting the grapefruit and tangerine. There's a teensy hint of the red rose. It has an almost fluffy-soft feel to it, which I'm guessing is the vanilla and buttercream. The white patchouli and musk definitely give it an elegant, sophisticated air.

 

As it dries down, the rose is coming out more and more - really lovely!

Pallas begins with a blast of juicy, tangy fruit with rose. I love how well the scent blends together, the rose isn't too strong, it just adds a floral element to the fruitiness. I actually don't detect the pepper. During wear, the fragrance mellows with the fruity floral becoming creamy with trails of patchouli. Oh, I love this elegant, feminine perfume.

I keep grabbing this one by accident! Usually all of these combined would smell like something it's not supposed to be on me, but this is really pretty! It's a clean creamy Spring Floral! One note doesn't really stand out for me, I like that all of these just weave together creating a pretty scent. That's what it is. Pretty and creamy. I'm starting to love Lumina. Lumina makes me feel clean and shiny. I feel like it's the daughter of Cougar. This actually reminds me of scented Cougar but like a younger version.

I'm going to have to give this one a real, dedicated, full body try. I only put it on my wrist and its floral, patch, and a hint of pepper. But still really soft, and pretty... almost powdery. And as always, I love me some lumina.

What an absolutely delightful and yummy smell this has. When I first put it on "Hello Grapefruit", then as it dries down, the rose ? makes her debut. Beautiful. Rose always amps on me. Then the vanilla creeps in a just makes things all mellow. As it is drying down it smells like the most divine rose/vanilla mix. Anything with rose always smells nice on me. Looking forward to seeing how this goes with the Lumina as it will be my first time wearing this phero.

I love Pallas, it's one i reach for when I'm feeling sluggish and need to be "on," it never lets me down. Last night, my man may have broken a bone in his foot, so we were up until about 4am trying to keep him comfortable and whatnot, and then I had to get out of bed at 6:30am to go teach a morning class. I was just changing out of yoga clothes into regular clothes, and got a whiff of something lovely. It's not uncommon for me to have to think back to what I might have put on, so I was mentally scrolling back, but only the Pallas today. What's left is a little smoky and sexy, not the Shiny Happy Good Times Grapefruit I left home in, but some sultry patch, some rose, pepper, vanilla, and possibly some strawberry. So Pallas just revealed itself to be an exceptional day to night morphing perfume, which I haven't noticed before. It's like a wear-to-work (with a cute little jacket) black sheath dress that becomes nonchallantly sexy at night by switching out the tailored jacket to a soft touchable seater cape or poncho. Not that Pallas is anything like a little black dress, I just mean that it became something completely different to me today 7 hours later. If you worked in a office and wanted to become more alluring to a co-worker immediately after work without appearing to do any modifications, this could be the one. Rolls in all happy and bright sunshine in the morning and then rolls over and says, "kiss me right here" in the late afternoon.

 

Dammit. Did I just talk myself into a back up bottle?

 

For the record, I have this in a spray. I love it so much I actually want to stink up the whole room with it.

Pallas is one of my favorites too! I just feel so sparkly and beautiful when I wear it (clearly the Lumina talking- LOL).

I have totally used this to do the job coffee sometimes fails to do in a timely fashion. I have even accidentally sprayed myself in the face! I'm not big on going to bed early (or at all), and I teach yoga many mornings so people expect me to not only be awake, but also perky and positive and entertaining. I bought two back up bottles in the sale, I don't ever want to run out.

It is for me, I'm also a big Lumina responder. I'm a childhood introvert that forced themselves to be an extrovert somewhere along the way. The grapefruit and tangerine chime in a lot here, but it's more the overall smooth blend that just seem to announce that it's "go time."
