I can see myself paring this with cop heavy pheros, as the notes are rich and well blended. I have never experienced such a complex blend. Love it! I am discovering a new world of magical goodness that I would have likely never known if not for the incredible artistry of Mara. BTW, customer service is always amazing!

Just got my virgin bottle today and I love it! Thinking I need at least one more bottle, maybe 2, before the virgin version is gone.

I know I've mentioned that my man has a keen nose, so yesterday when a lone mysterious sample appeared in a freshly washed load of laundry, and the label was off and I had zero idea what it was, I put it on and asked him to guess. I figured that he could tell me a few notes and I could narrow it down from there.

 

"Honey, smell this, what do you smell?"

He sniffed, sniffed again. "It's the new Bad Girl."

"What? How do you know that?"

"Because I smell the leather, and I used to have Bad Boy. It's pretty obvious. Try something harder next time."

 

He thought I was playing a guessing game. I wanted him to be wrong! I really didn't know what it was! I went and dumped out all my recent "unfiled" samples, looking for the Bad Girl label, but no. All of them were there BUT bad girl.

 

Now, I've been afraid to wear leather because my ex barely lived through my Dom experiments on him, and I don't enjoy being angry and scaring people. Well, I don't mind scaring them, but I don't need the residual aggravation. With the Leather, I got the kids to bed more quickly and with much less fuss and trips to bathroom and to the kitchen for glasses of water. I put on a few drops of UN Cuddle Bunny to up the EST so I wouldn't frighten my man. Let's just say, he put me to bed early and knocked me out real good. He was absolutely positively not frightened by me one bit.

Lol thats funny. But definitely dont be scared of Leather because of Dom. Just be scared of Dom. Leather hits way differently with that est to temper the none.

Yep, I can wear leather, the hubby loves the new Bad Girl, but I could chew his face off wearing DOM, for no reason.

I didnt find a thread for the virgin bottle of this. I just wanted to say that for me it seems the fragrance alone works as thoughleather is there. Perhaps it just some mind bender thing because Im associating the two together, and have the leaded version as well. The fragrance may just trigger that because I tried the phero version first. Or its simply another testament to how awesome Mara is with the perfect blend pheroed or not.

 

I accidentally spilled LFM and didnt want to waste it but paired it with virgin bad girl to save the intention for my night. It worked great, like I had the benefits of both blends. My plan was MLH, but I had just enough fawning ( from ladies and gents ) to make me feel awesome and included, just enough authority to keep a bunch of drunk fellas in line at a cat house. Im looking forward to wearing this combo again.

There isn't a separate thread - I think it's fine to post about both versions in this thread.

 

But honestly, when Mara creates a phero-enhanced scent she gives a lot of thought to congruence, they are each created with the pheromone blend as an integral part of the fragrance. So in some cases I can see that sort of thing happening.

Just tried my sample and I think I love this ... it is different from my usual foodie scents that I like.  But it does have an underlying sweetness which makes it work for me.  Over the sweetness I can smell spicyness and the smooth scent of aged leather ... this is good!

I like this one. It reminds me of the chocolate covered honey candies I used to get at the airport. Not sure why because there's no chocolate in this but that's what I smell, anyway. It dries down to leather with just a hint of sweetness on me. 

 

I wore it shopping yesterday and had a couple managers (both male, idk if that makes a difference) trying to please me, very nice, compliment -heavy experiences. 

 

Today I wore it (just a bit more than yesterday) with a little pop/lfm. This one may be a new fave. I forgot to add that I got a discount on my pizza when I was heading home, which was nice and very unexpected.

After smelling 10+ bottles of different fragrances back to back without any coffee grounds to get the previous smell out, plus travel shock... I might be interpreting this wrong. I can't pick a note out besides vanilla, and it kinda is like a honeyed vanilla. I'd defiantly wear this without hesitation, but I'll let it settle out a bit first before I go and wear it out.

This was a total dark horse for me!

I don't know why but I immediately imagined this song... Black horse, dark horse? Same difference right? ?

How did I miss reviewing one of my favorite scents?! :D  It's a sexy, sophisticated blend that blooms into a delightful range of scents every step of the way, from bottle to application to dry down. I absolutely love how the leather and honey notes in this come together to make me give off the impression the label implies, too. :Emoticons0424:

 

This is so, so good on me. Mr. Crash never fails to be bowled over by the Leather, either. I've gotten some great hits when wearing it out and about, too. I don't know what it is about this one but it's like my catnip for random dudes -- I get more whiplash head turns than anything else I've tried yet. 

 

This also pairs very well with a dash of OCCO: Cherry Tobac.
