Delectable

il_fullxfull.1520948525_pfjz.jpg?version

A scrumptious floral gourmand featuring the lovely, aromatic and elegant orchid! With a scent akin to orchid frosting, a blend of luscious buttercreme and caramel, further flavored with boozy vanilla extract on a base of sweet amber EO, then adorned with a voluptuous orchid in full bloom. Who could resist such a delectable delight?! 

Magickal Meanings of Ingredients:
ORCHID ~ Strong love symbol; beauty, refinement, fertility, creativity, psychic powers.
MILK/BUTTER/CREAM ~ Nurturing, soothing, eases troubled relationships. Goddess energy.
VANILLA ~ Aphrodisiac, inspires happiness, playfulness, sexual arousal, lust, vitalizing.
SUGAR ~ Attracts love, luck, sweetness and riches. Lust inducing, wishes granted.
AMBER ~ Fertility, creativity, love, luck, riches.

OH MY LORD

 

I love gourmand florals for sure, I've stated as much over the years and so I was excited for this one because I love orchid and gourmand orchid is a wonderful thought and THIS is just so delicious for sure.  It is very sweet and thick so I think you'd really have to be all-in for the sweet scents but what makes it really interesting is that the orchid - one of those fleshy types - still makes it a sophisticated floral.  It has that definite full-bodied quality.  It's like Sugared Orchid (at least the original version which I know and love) to the power of ten.  It's yummy but it's also very sexy.

Mmmmm! I could drink this! Sweet and syrupy :yum: This is screaming for cops 💋

I get lots of vanilla caramel, with the amber in there all cozy. The orchid gives it a sophistication, keeps it just this side of smutty. Love!

Wow. I can't smell much, but I just took a sniff out of the vial because I was wondering if this was like an Orchid Liebchen, but it's sweeter, brighter, and yummier! I want to wait a few more days but this will probably be the first one I try from the set.

So, I've discovered that caramel in fragrances reads as pancake syrup on me, and am wondering if that happens to anyone else. Both Delectable and Lady V's Midnight Snack have my children and husband (who don't realize it's my perfume) saying they smell syrup - and it's not a bad thing, just what my skin does with caramel, evidently. I will try Delectable again in a few days and see if I get any more of the floral scent,  but so far I haven't.

Kayla, I get a strong maple syrup too!  I’m glad it’s not just me. Not all caramel does this, but it happens.

Thanks, Eve. I bought a bottle of LV's Midnight Snack in the trade section a while ago and just assumed that it should smell like maple syrup.  It wasn't until I got my latest order that I figured out it was the caramel reading that way on my skin. I wish I would have known before I ordered a full bottle of Delectable unsniffed. It does smell lovely in the bottle, though.  I might try a scent locket or trade it.

This is incredible. Rich and buttery and yes, like some others have commented, almost like pancake syrup on my skin. But then the heady orchid on top...omg. This is to die for!! Despite the richness, it’s still a wonderful lighter scent perfect for the spring. It melds with the skin. It’s very sexy in a languid way. I’d wear it with LFN.

In the bottle all I get is a blast of mouthwatering, rich, decadent caramel.  Upon first application I don't know what happened though, it smells almost a bit plasticky on me.  Underneath the plastic I can smell the tantalisingly sexy scent of orchid.  I will wait to see how dry down moves the scent along.

Oh dear, I think this one is too sweet for me. I def get the syrup, it's more or less all syrup on me. Makes me feel as if I've eaten 4 stacks of pancakes naked, and one of those stacks I rubbed on my body. I felt sticky and full, had to wash it off. On the other hand, if ever I'm trying to curb a craving for pancakes I know what to reach for!

I'm kind of saving this one for last. With these kinds of reviews, I'm sure I'm in for a FB!

This is the 1st of this collection that does not agree with me. I had amazing visions of orchid and boozy vanilla with lashings of cream mingling in a... delectable way. But, on my skin its a no go. I get no boozyness. I get superfoody vanilla cakey/dairy. The kind that is overwhelming on me. But, the worst part it gives me a severe headache to the point of making me nauseated. I tried to tough it out but it only got worse. Had to scrub this one off. While there have been a few superfoody scents that I could not wear, only one other has generated such a severe response. Ironically it was also a scent I thought would work but didnt. Oh well....

This month is packed with winners. But, this is a no go.

In the interest of science and Orchide Vanilla comparison, I just slathered this on and shoved my wrist in front of my man, 2 min into drydown. He grabbed my arm, then said "ummmmm," and then grabbed my boob. He says it's cozy and comfortable, sexy but casual, not for dressing up in a fancy dress. (If I had asked when sampling Vanilla Orchide, I'm sure he would have said it was good for dress up, I believe that means more powdery or clean for him.) 

I'm so glad my skin doesn't do the maple syrup thing! Ironically, he and I both dislike maple as a note, so there's no chance that's happening here. I'm currently covered in 70 spf (unscented) sunscreen, so the orchid isn't playing well with that. I'll test it again later when I'm not covered in chemicals.

 

an hour later edit: 

I was started to feel that the Orchid might turn on me and give me a headache for a little bit, but then it smoothed itself out. And then I added Aja to the mix, and it was quite huffable. I just reslathered with both, and if it stays this sexy, they could possibly get mixed together in the bottle, never to venture solo again.

 

two hour later edit:

I have a few things I love with Aja added, but I've never had much of an opinion on it, one way or another. DELECTABLE WITH AJA TOGETHER IS SPECTACULAR. Or fucktacular, whichever is a higher compliment in your mind. Do you have both? GO MIX THEM NOW!!!

Yes!  It's happening with me, but neither me nor my husband are minding it.  I'm getting a strong reminder of Universal Antidote with this one.  It also reminds me of my Orchid Fairy Cake.  This is going on the list.

I rescued both Delectable and Aja off my trade list, mixed them together, spiked with Gotcha, and divided into two perfume sprays and made one for a friend, and filled the rest with perfumer's alcohol. This might be my new keep-in-the-bathroom, smell-delicious-right-out-of-the shower before bed spritzer. (Formerly a spray of Honey'd LP.)

 

The friend was the inspiration, they've been dating for many months and he has yet to close the deal. I waslike, I know just the thing!
