Time Travel: Year One

Recommended Posts

It’s a little-known fact that the Romans were actually the first to create pheromone-enhanced products! When the gladiators completed their staged battles in the Colosseum, they would be bathed in oils which were then scraped off the skin and used as an ingredient in skin creams for women. Gladiator Sweat was thought to be good for the complexion, as a sexual attractant and aiding in conception. Thus we now pay tribute to our pheromone pioneers with a combination of fragrance ingredients from that ancient epoch...weighty and resinous, featuring a bold blend of amber and cedar with touches of tangerine and sweetheart rose, storax and honey. The unisex charms of this scent are furthered with a dose of our exclusive PERFECT MATCH pheromone formula, a 'soulmate' type of blend that both sexes can wear. Promotes attraction, trust, communication, conquering of nervousness and happy, good-time mood elevation. Reminds established couples of that first blush of new love, complete with butterflies in the tummy!

MAGICKAL MEANINGS OF INGREDIENTS:
AMBER ~ Fertility, creativity, love, luck, riches.
CEDAR ~ Confidence inducing, balancing, grounding, energizing, money, healing, protection, purification.
STORAX ~ Healing, mental acuity, relaxation, sensual, love drawing, deflection of negativity.
BALSAM ~ Fertility, purification, strength, rejuvenation, calming and soothing, healing, protection, money, long life.
HONEY ~ Enticing, seductive; use to bewitch a straying or hesitant lover. Happiness, fulfillment.
ROSE ~ Self confidence, strong aphrodisiac properties, attracts affection & love, fertility, divination/clairvoyance.
ORANGE & BLOSSOMS ~ Strong ‘magnet’ to attract men; eternal love, marriage, fruitfulness, thoughtfulness, happiness, tribute.

This is definitely bold, I will say. To me, this is quite masculine. The amber and the cedar together are sort of spicy, almost, even a tad astringent, like there's pine in there somewhere. Not that I think there is, it's just that same sort of bracing quality in a way. Underneath that there is a quality that I'm getting from the honey - it's sort of hard to describe but I know that's what it is, if that makes sense. But it's adding a weight to the whole rather than any kind of sweetness or even smutty evocation. The tangerine is a tangy top note, but it's not sweet, you just get that citrus zing! in the top. I would recommend this more to guys, but if you are curious it's certainly worth it for anyone to get a trial vial.

I'm never usually a fan of storax, but the amber, honey, cedar, and rose really make this wearable for me! It is more on the manly side, but warm and comforting to me. I'm going to have Mr Perfect try this one, too!

OMG, this is amazing. I didn't know that rose could be masculine, but this, to me, is a masculine scent. It's actually what I would call an "everything I ever wanted" perfume. I didn't know I was missing this in my life, thankfully this need will be filled. Its perfect. There have been a few "everything I've ever wanted" perfect perfumes here in LP Heaven, and this one is dwarfing them all in my mind at the moment.

 

Not any man could wear Year One though, only the kind of man you'd want to cuddle with on the sofa. Perfect Match is the best possible phero choice for this smooth sexy blend. I haven't yet smelled anything that was paired with PM that I didn't love. I'm absolutely buying this for my man. If he doesn't love it, I'd happily wear it myself. He is a fan of women's perfumes with amber, so I could see either of us huffing this one off of the other. I pick up the suggestion of pine that Mara mentioned, I think that's part of what makes it masculine. I honestly don't get any citrus, but I have eaten most of a pineapple, two mangos, and two oranges so far today. I consume massive quantities of citrus on the regular, I can eat 5 lb. of cuties or Sumatra mandarins in a day, no problem. I'm also perpetually dispersing tangerine, orange, rosemary and clove at the yoga studio, so I think my skin might already smell like tangerines. I hope the citrus doesn't amp on my man, he'd be afraid to wear it, fearing that I'd eat him in his sleep.

 

We already have a rule, my man cannot wear Mark's Girl Nip if I'm not with him. There's going to be a rule with Year One. If we break up, he has to give it back to me. We could possibly negotiate over the kitten John Snow, Year One is non-negotiable.

 

Edit: Made him put it on after his shower and before dinner. 90 minutes later, it smells completely different on him than it did on me. No rose, nothing sweet, a manly cedar and a little resinous. I'm so surprised! Buying it for him, but could end up as mine, I liked it better on me.

 

ONE HOUR LATER : the amber and rose are back! #winning

In the bottle, I get that sort of pine scent, but it dies down almost instantly as soon as it hits my skin. To the point where I reapplied because I was afraid I hadn't shaken the sample enough. Luckily, I was home so it didn't matter that I was practically drowning in the stuff. But once again, as soon as it hit my skin it totally mellowed out and became far less masculine.

 

On me, it is subdued and just a hint on the masculine side of unisex, but extremely wearable for a woman. Even though it doesn't have sandalwood, it gives me much of the same sensory impression sandalwood does. It has that same sort of dry woodiness that feels almost papery and dusty, while still seeming warm. It carries the same textural impression as fancy paper that is trying to mimic vellum.

 

It reminds me of being in a wooden cabin that still has a faintly lingering scent of the wood it was constructed with. It's not a strong scent, but there in the background with the other ingredients lending a feminizing edge just enough to soften it. It ends up being extremely unisex. The honey rounds it out, leaving a trace I could still smell ~10 hours later.

 

If I had to sum this scent up in one word, it would be smooth.

My man just put this on. He said, "Oh, wow, this smells good! Why haven't you told me to put this on before?"

 

Um, okay. My bad.

Hey you busy shoppers, Year One is awesome. I'd back up mine except it's currently my man's. But you should snag one of these, it's really cool and it's PM, fer fucks sake.
