Latica is a bit of a head scratcher for me. It’s full of notes that I typically don’t like yet I do like this very much. The peach and peach blossom open up very strong in a lovely springy way. Those are notes that are hit or miss for me in general but I love them in Latica. The tuberose and benzoin add a smoothness and richness that take awhile to really emerge while the brightness of the peach mellows out. Both of those can be death notes for me but they work beautifully here. And the sage adds a cleanness. It’s in the background really, just a wisp, but there. Also usually a death note for me. I know I say it a lot but this perfume is a perfect example of why getting the Samplers is a must. Things I should love, I sometimes don’t and things I am sure that I will hate and on paper should, end up being surprise loves. Such is the genius of Mara. She blends things in such a brilliant and unexpected way that you can’t ever truly predict what your loves and hates will be. Latica is a surprise hit for me.

At first, I get that sweet peachy fruit punch-y scent of the plumeria and the peach notes which is a wonderful combination, I really enjoy it, and it definitely has the right upbeat evocation for Cougar.  After a time the tuberose emerges but it melds really well with the other notes, so it's not quite the kind of overpowering thing that tuberose can do on me sometimes.  It's a really upbeat take on tropical floral, I think, in that it's a sweet-tangy-lush kind of vibe.  Great for Spring or Summer and if you've never tried Cougar Potion because grapefruit isn't your thing, then you might want to give this a whirl.

This is a delicious peachy-plumeria scent on me. I'm not getting any tuberose yet, although it's only been about a half of an hour since I put it on. It is really sweet and has great throw, plus a really happy vibe to it.  This will be great to wear in the spring and summer!

Latica starts out all peachy on me, a sweet, ripe peach. There's a hint of something perfume-y in there. As it dries down, the plumeria really blooms. It's super pretty, and perfect for Spring. Three hours later, it's still detectable at skin level, but the big waft it had at the beginning is gone.

This smells soooooo good. My favorite LP scent so far and I think I own or have full bottles or samples of at least 30 blends. I haven’t even checked for self effects. Will be doing full bottle with this one 💕

Wow! This one packs a wallop! My first impression of it was that it was really strong, lol! I really like it a lot...but to me, it's all fruit. It's the fruitiest of fruits. If there was an ancestral fruit from whence all other fruits came, it would smell and taste like this. If there was a fruit kingdom, this would be its Queen (yes, capitalized and everything. And I said Queen instead of King because it's very feminine to me. Although if I was royalty, I'd make everyone call me King instead of Queen even though I'm female because fuck you, that's why--I'm the mf'ing monarch! Anyone complains? Off with their heads!).

 

(I talk a mighty imperial game for someone whose ancestors on all sides were, as far as I can tell, peasants all the way down.) Anyway...

 

After it dries down completely, I maybe get a bit of floral. Maybe. I mean I guess I do. But it's much more fruit-forward. 

 

Now let's talk about the type of fruit. Peach. I cannot BELIEVE that the only fruit in this thing is peach. To me, it smells like a medley of every different kind of fruit you can imagine, and several that you can't. Every fruit that exists in this dimension, with a few thrown in from all the others. The Holy Grail of fruit punches, as it were. And it doesn't turn plasticky on me! Peach usually does.

 

So my point is, I really love it. I'd buy a bottle if I could and didn't have 500 million various bottles already. Flipping peasant ancestors. I might, though. If it's still around when I have money. I mean if you like fruit scents, you HAVE to have this.

I really enjoyed wearing this today, and even though I really love grapefruit (Pallas is a top hit) the other Scented Cougars were not for me. I do love Peach, all peaches, and this is a sticky drippy ripe peach. Definitely farmers market organic brightly colored Peach, that not out-of-season disappointing supermarket peach. Tuberose was one of my favorite Fairy Cakes, absolutely positively the only floral Fairy Cake I need, this tuberose is a little more mellow, kicking it side by side with the plumeria.I don't know if it's the sage or benzoin, but something adds a richer depth, so it's not just a fruity floral. I wouldn't say it's a "grown up lady" mature perfume, but it's not for teenagers, either. It's a great carrier for Cougar!

 

When I make my next order, pretty sure this will be on it. BF is out of town so I'll save rest of the trial for when he's home.
