I think I need to let this one rest awhile longer because its suuuuuuuper light on me. I smell all the usual suspects but just much lighter. Marshmallow is a bit lighter than the last version and the original. I smell ylang, licorice, grapefruit and spices all at about the same ratio, which is to say present but subtle and well blended. It also smells more creamy than usual which has to be the vanilla. Its a VERY nice version. I hope it gets a little stronger with a bit of aging.

This is more creamy to me, too, Halo. I get lots of creamy ylang. Not as much licorice or grapefruit as some past versions. I always love Flying Potion, but sometimes my chemistry does weird things with it. This one is behaving nicely though!

How does this version compare to the 2015 version? That one was whitest, most creamy & marshmallow fluffy of all versions I've tried ('13 - '16).

I dont remember '16 that well. The trial leaked so I never had a good run with it.

This is delicious! Creamy marshmallow, vanilla with just the lightest hint of spice. I've been sniffing my arm all day. It's very light, but just perfect!

 

ETA - It's a PMS type of day, I have a ton of work to catch up on before tomorrow, and my husband is being a total ass, but somehow (Levitation) I am remaining relatively calm. I'll be ordering a full bottle of this for sure!!!

I agree with this; I'm kind of wondering if it has to do with my sample not being a mini spray bottle like usual? I shook it really well but yeah, it's very transparent.

 

To answer your question about the '15 version, Stacy, I would say that one is creamier. But that's not to say this one isn't; or it may become so with some aging.

15 minutes in, I'm smelling a sweetened nutmeg. I don't know if a man would wear this, but it's spicy enough on me that I'd follow a man around who smelled this good. My first husband did use a hair product that made him smell like pumpkin pie, but he wasn't known for extreme masculinity. I also get the vanilla and ylang ylang, which feminize it of course, but you really can't go wrong with these notes.

 

Sadly, I broke the top of the glass vial, but fortunately, the closest mostly empty vial was BBM. So I'm sure in 6 months when I open it again it will be deliciously lovely.

Thanks. I LOVE '15. Its so marshmallow-creamy. Its so "white out" its almost wintery to me.

Tough decisions.. I only have 4 bottles of Flying Potion left... lol

I've liked each version of Flying potion since 2014 when I started with LP fragrances. This year's is no exception and I sprang for the FB this time. I love that it's a gentle scent on me - very good for work - and it makes me feel happy. :)

I had this for two years and did not try it out of the vial, for two reasons:

I went through a phero-free 2018 as soon as New Year hit, for health reasons.

 

I also went scent blind to marshmallow and ylang ylang from practically snortnig Sensual Harmony and somehow Fairy Cake Magnolia (doesn't have marshmallow, but maybe I feel similar about the two foodie notes).

Cinnamon wasn't a note I was dying to try, because it's been done in commercial fragrance and I was in a hurry to meet new mysterious, exotic notes available at LPMP.

 

But let's just say I have a feeling this is going to be my go-to this winter.. I have been missing out! and I'm so happy I saved this (I never throw out scents untried anyway). Warm and homey but light and non-cloying, feels social like the phero blend! I'm so ready to get in on this classic.
