This is a nice floral. The flour adds a nice powdery base. It has a darker sweetness, which must be either brown sugar or honey. I can also smell a hint of either nutmeg or clove. I think that there might be a hint of daffodil or some greener type floral in here as well.

I was expecting something a little more foody from this scent; on me, it turned out to be a strong lily-type floral, and very classically "perfumey." I didn't get the flour or honey very clearly.

Maybe people haven't been shaking their sample vials? For me, this one is very foody.

 

In the bottle: A grain, almost oat-like, with sticky sweetness, and a hint of something juicy, like wet raisins.

 

On, wet: vanilla and grains, with bright, juicy currants. Very quickly, the currants take over, and the rest is just a sweet background for them.

 

Drydown: the currants settle in, and a honey note comes forth, drizzled across the cake which the grains and other sweet things have become.

 

Not my type of scent. I may be bending more and more on my non-foody stance, but I still don't want to smell like cake.

Wow interesting how differently this one is interpreted by different people!

 

This one was a close cousin to my beloved Hathor, at least on my skin.

 

Wet I was not at all thrilled - almost fruitcakey. Too fruity and sharp. But after about 1/2 hour, I began to get the rich sweetness of grains. By the end of the evening, I was huffing my arm and feeling the need to pull out my Hathor to compare. Yup, cousins.

 

Wheat Siren stays on my radar...will try again in a few weeks to see how she matures.

Somewhere between people saying hint of clove, lily, and rich sweetness this came off of my wishlist.

I think the message on this one is that it is dramatically different smelling on different people, and therefore probably worth sampling for yourself.

I wore this this long weekend while I was baking bread and making cheese - Yummy Holiday Presents in Process! I thought it would be a perfect ode to giving thanks for the bounty of the holidays.

 

This time I got the lilies...it was very floral at first. Then after a time it settled to that warm golden goodness. I wouldn't say it was exactly "foody", & I don't usually like to smell like food, per se. DH thought I smelled wonderful.

This is very yummy. I really like natural organic scents and this one is fantastic. I can smell the grains and the honey blends them all perfectly. This is what I had wished heartland smelled liked. This will be a big bottle purchase for me.

This was not as foody as i thought it would it be

 

It is warm doughy bread with light caramel and a hint of cloves? This has the clean hay scent i like - fresh hay drying in the sun with a bit of spice, fruit and honey - delicious

 

So glad i got a sample to test - this goes on the big bottle list

I tried this one again, shook it up very carefully. I get the flour/oat grainy scent at the beginning, but that disappears fairly quickly into a strong floral on me. Put this one down to skin chemistry, I guess!

I thought this came out soft and sweet on me. The honeycomb and vanilla notes stand out with an unexpected note I couldn't place, it must be the wheat I am thinking. This fragrance does say autumn season to me.

Never gave this one a try, giving it a testing right now. Not good at describing, but so far I like it, reminds me of something I've tried/experienced before, can't put me finger on it. Hmmm.... something orange-y, but not citrus, gotta read description again :Hug_emoticon: . Don't laugh.

 

AHA ! Orange Blossoms ! it's fading a bit, now I'm getting Clove/Honey.

 

24 mins later....Wheat !

This is so different on everyone...I love it. I finally tried it tonight and got soft spices for the first 1/2 hour which finally opened up to the floury goodness behind it. Flowers? I got none of those! Just spicy baked goodness. mmmm new comfort scent w/ a pair of flannel pj's and a cup of tea.

This is quite foody to me, not very floral. I get oats and honey, it's like porridge. On drydown it takes on a "cooler" feel, if that makes sense - perhaps it is the florals peeking through. It does have go a little perfume-y on me, but I still like it.

Sometimes I cannot express what I am smelling in notes, I can only express myself in images or feelings I get.. with that being said. Let me tell you how wonderful and womanly this makes me feel. Wheat Siren to me feels like I am a beautiful maiden chef working in the castle of a powerful Lord somewhere in Scotland or England, wherever those fancy hunky highlander lords live.

It makes me feel like I am a diamond in the wheat.. Like I am a misplaced gem, a jewel, that has the powers of seducing men with her pastries and cakes ~ I feel like I am in a castle somewhere baking, the windows are open, or the tapestries are, it's warm and there's a breeze. The breeze sweeps in the smell of the rose garden that sits outside my kitchen or where the hearth is, and I am wearing a cream lacy dress with cleavage and tits the size of watermelons, they have to be this way because they are plumped up and have flour on them. There I am baking, hair cascading down in raven colored ringlets adorned in baby's breath, and the Laird of the castle comes in seduced by my pie,(s) and , he is salivating, he is enchanted with me, my pie, the smell of roses and baby's breath, the flour smeared across my bosoms, and face.. I know what he is thinking, He wants to give me a facial and smear something else on my chest and cheek.. I know this because I baked with this intent. I know he wants to knead me, the way I knead dough.. I know because I am an enchantress, I am the Wheat Siren.

 

That's the feeling I get from this, it's really beautiful and sexy on me, with florals in the background that don't pierce or overwhelm. It also makes me feel like a seductress, like time travel or something. I feel so very special and womanly when I wear this, like someone from centuries ago. This is a very special one indeed.

 

I really love this!

I never gave my sniffee a second thought until this year, but wowza! I'm not normally into this type of foodie, but the guys seem to adore me when I wear it. Seriously, this scent needs no help from pheromones. Anyway, I have been meaning to get a full bottle of this.

Its not what I expected at all. This was a big surprise for me and the BF loved it.

I think he pictured me making pie like a meideval wench, because he did a braveheart impression and wanted me to play along.

I didn't , then he did Sean Connery and I told him to stop talking.

Yeah, it is crazy how much of an effect this has on the gents for sure, even my crab ass SO.

I'm going to have to get a sample of this. From the list of notes it sounds just like what I would want to wear. But then the reviews mention cloves, currants, lilies etc. which aren't listed and I don't see anything that is close to these at all. Going to satisfy my curiosity by trying it soon.

I like the smell of oats and oat-scented lotions (archipelago has one that I adore) so I've been keeping my eye on this as a potential.

This smells a little like Hathor with a little spice in the background. It's a very comforting and cozy scent to me. I can't pick out the individual ingredients. I might have to try this at bedtime.

I'm not quite sure if this is my type of scent. There's definitely something spicy about it initially. I would say with a twinge of greenness. Perhaps that's the wheat and oats combining with the ginger. And after that it softens to a sweet honey, which I enjoy, but the opening sharpness and intensity make me want to back down from this one. We'll see how it does on a re-test though.

I think your bottle might have travel shock. I'd let it sit for a week & try again.

I need to retry this. I tried it a couple of times and while I liked the wheat part, that was actually a small role compared to the rest which reminded me of some small perfumes I got from Saudi Arabia as a kid--a bit too perfumey in a really old-fashioned way--kinda floral which surprised me. But I'll give it another go.

You know, I'm sure you must be right. I hadn't taken travel shock into account at all, and being so new, I've been letting things sit, but only for a day or two. I hadn't even considered that a week might be a more comfortable time period for a scent. Thanks, Beccah!

I can totally smell the oat and spice. After awhile, there is a light sweet scent. It's lovely. So far I really like the campfire series.

Just wait, soon enough you'll have so many bottles that you'll be lucky if you can get to the new ones sooner than a month, at least! ;)

This is a nice soft floral on me warmed up with the oats and flour. There is a dark sweetness that's almost reads sticky or syrupy. Must be the honey. This stays somewhat perfumey on me... And the honey doesn't take over. It's a really pretty scent for fall. It's a sexy "flour on the cleavage/baking all day" scent.

Miss hazel gave me a sample of this! Excitement!

 

So In the vial it had a very pronounced flour/vanilla oat thing going on and I wasn't feeling brave enough at the time. But today, I really wanted the cougar in it so I slathered away.

 

Once it hit my skin, it wAS BAM VINTAGE OLD SCHOOL MUSK with a powdery vanilla and a hint of sweet flour. There's a (very) faint hint of light honey and wheat that's wafting around the application and I thought breakfast in bed would go nicely (and I was right)

 

I'm super happy I got to try this, even though it doesn't smell like baked bread--its more like I'm smelling the process of it being made and there's nothing cooler than that :-D

I recieved a sniffie of this in my last order (I think?) and I love it when I get an Old School LP surprise! I do get the comparisons to Hathor although this is far more floral on me than bread-like, or even oat-like. I think I would like this better if the orange blossom note wasn't so sharp on me, because the background is actually really nice.

I love this so much it hurts. :surprised:

 

I'm inexperienced with LP, but I've always been a perfume fanatic. I would have never chosen this for myself, as the edible aromas are not for me!

 

However, it doesn't smell very food-y at all! It is definitely sweet and has a classic feminine smell. Very light and pretty!

I still love this perfume! It doesn't fail, when I wear Wheat Siren, people are always ultra nice to me. Men & women. This gets lovelier as it ages, & a little goes a long way.

I enjoyed this when I first got the sniffee but have always put it away, safe and sound in my vault. I get primarily orange blossom, honeycomb, vanilla and amber and projects a very soft, approachable and warm vibe. Totally love this and will be missed when the sniffee is gone.
