My BIG FAT Scent Review

Recommended Posts

Hey all. I just got my big ol' order and a bunch of samples and I smell like a french whore right now trying all these perfume oils and sniffing. Keep in mind that I just got this stuff and haven't had the chance to PROPERLY wear it. This is all first impression of the fragrances. I haven't been out to wear the pheros out and see what kind of reactions I get from them, but thought I'd jot down my impressions of the scents.

 

Also, I am very black and white with fragrances. I either LOVE or HATE a scent and I'm turned off by a lot of stuff... patch, musks, amber, overly honey-fied stuff. So my reviews will probably be kind of negative in general over scents that many might very well like. Please don't think I'm critical of the perfumes. I just don't have a very adventurous sniffer! I like what I like and that's all that I like. :) I also know NOTHING about perfumes and notes. I have never reviewed perfumes before, so what I jot down is just going to be basically odiferous streams of consciousness. I'm just gonna blab about how the perfume smelled to me...what came to mind.. and the affect of the scent on me.

 

 

Music of the Spheres Really not my thing. Smelled masculine to me...kinda like leather furniture. Soapy maybe??..reminded me of someones library. The smell of old books.

 

Miasma really dislike. Pungent, tickles my nose, but rather sophisticated, perhaps an older more conservative woman's perfume. I can't get the smell out of my nose after. Ick more I smell it, the more I dislike it. Cologney. Very Cruella Deville.

 

Opportunity Potion Geez, I dislike this one. Why does it remind me of the smell of bacon or meat fat? Smoked bacon...kinda mellow and pleasant but not a feminine sexy smell. Reminds me of the summer cabin we sometimes stay. I wouldn't want a man to smell like this either.

 

 

Tantric butterfly Smells like a headshop. Very psychedelic. I hate patch and would never wear this because it's got that hippie smell...but it's a softcore hippie who shaves her pits and does her nails. Reminds me of tarot cards, tambourines and crystals. I'm still gonna take it for a spin during sex and see how I feel with the TAF.

 

 

Amber Enchantment reminds me of coolaide, peachy and sugary. I think this is a fun young scent. Reminds me of sunshine and smiles...I'm not really into Amber though and overly sugary scents aren't really all me, but I'd be tempted to wear this now and then if I was feeling zany or immature.

 

 

Night of Fae I love this one. It's very curious feminine scent to me. Reminds me of fairy dust and honey dew. Melon and littly tiny white flowers. This is one of my favorites. Very feminine, softly floral but sparkly and fruityish. I wanna smear it on my lips like lipgloss for some reason. Makes me feel Princessy.

 

 

Heartland Ewwwww! Smells like a cactus and tumbleweed. Scent of an armadillo. Smells like a cowboy..maybe a pinecone. Nothing I'd like to smell like.

 

12th Night Confuses me. It's the scent of chaos. I smell chocolate, then I smell leather, I smell the medicine my mother used to smear on my baby brother's balls and bum when he was in diapers. It's like Clockwork Orange flash movies...all these scent memories that I can't pin down....I think I can pin it down...but then it morphs into another. I wouldn't want to smell like this...its kind of unisex. It's kinda disturbing. Oh I just smelled bellpepper. I'd name this stuff "WTF?"

 

Eve's Temptation I really like. Apple-icious but not OVERLY apple-y. Oh man it smells good on me. Oh mannnn...does it smell good on me. I got to get a big one of this and have some sexy phero added to it, because this scent mmmmmm....makes me happy and sexy. It's clean, light, feminine, like wind blowing through my hair, like skipping through the park with butterflies following me. I LOVE this one.

 

 

Heart of Kapet. This one confuses me. Not soft and feminine enough for my taste but it's sorta sexy..but it's weeeeird. It's very femme fatale. Makes me think of those snapping carnivourous flower..a Venus Fly Trap. Smells kind of Xrated. When I sniffed it out of the bottle I was like P.U. but when I put it on...it's still confusing..yet nice..a bit erotic. Smells like a dangerous lady in black spiked heels and a little crop. Don't cross this lady. I might try this one in the evening..although its very different than anything I usually wear.

 

Valentine Queen I really like this one and had Cuddle Bunny Pheros added it's kinda asian smelling, floral but very sophisticated. Smells like a fine perfume to me a bit floral. Very much a perfume scent. Delicate, upper-class scent. This will be one I wear very regularly.

 

Lovers Reunion spiked with Heart and Soul pheros

So far I really do not like the scent of this one . It has a licorice pine scent going on...I guess it must be the carnation..because there is no mention of licorice in the description. I'm not sure. I really want to try the Heart and Soul pheros as I know my target will love it, but the scent I know he won't enjoy. Just a huff of this stuff and I immediately got that phero rush. I really don't like this sharp scent I'm getting though....I can't get it out of my friggin nostrils. Might possibly be one I want to trade.

 

Green Shield OCCO certainly smells NOTHING of cops. IT's VERY floral. Smells like a bouquet of spring flowers. I don't know what flowers. I love florals but it might be a bit much just straight... I think it will mix nicely with the fragrances I do like though. Straight I think it smells a bit grandmotherish. Eitherway, it SOO covers the scent of COPS it's outrageous! I think it will blend well with other perfumes

 

Midnight Garden spiked with Magnet is very green and floral but in that more perfumey way. This is another I really like. It's very beautiful. A scent I would pick out in a fine department store. It's floral but its whispery dreamy florals. Mystical flowers. It smells likes pixies and fairy wings and unicorn breath. :) It really is a gorgeous scent.

 

Kingdom of Dreams. Another scent that makes me feel instantly happy. I got it enhanced with Blatant Invitation. So glad I did! It's fruity and youthful, yet not so much that it's a teenager scent. I smell a bit of citrus, strong hints of melon and peach, tad of floral...oh I think water lilies. I lovvvvvvvvve water lilies. It smells a bit tropical..but not coconutty tropical..but the smell of like Hawaai...that light floral smell that the air seems to have in Hawaiia. Makes me wanna grab a bikini. Reminds me of beach hair and fruity drinks by a sparkly blue pool. I HEART this one!

 

Bam in Orchid Rose The Orchid is stronger than the rose, which I like. It's a bit super floral but I think it will blend very nicely with my favorite fragrances. :)

 

Phero Girl sample smells like a dirty cookie. There's a bit of a dirty smell..a skin, flesh scent...bit of a cookie..but like maybe a burnt cookie. There's like a smell of plant in there..like ok...got it...tree bark and cookies. Think cookie tree...that maybe caught on fire and smells a bit sooty...oh and throw a porno magazine in the mix..because for some reason..this scent just smells SEXUAL. This one boggles my mind. I don't think I like Honey scents on me at all. Update: I wore this for awhile and the scent totally turned on me..It seem to become much more subtle and I got a less foody smell as time wore off...it started smelling a bit like the mildest incense...kind of like honey and fading incense smoke. It's actually kind of a soothing scent. Smells quite different to me than when I first applied, but wouldn't be a scent that fits me.

 

 

 

Gothic Latte ..this totally smells like the name. Smells like coffee, vanilla, brown sugar. It's a yummy scent. I'm not sure I'd wear for a fragrance..but I would love it for lotion or hair product. It's very deeeelicous.

 

Rowdy Rawnchy and Rude another one of those tumbleweed, western smells. I don't like them. This one really smells like a Dancer in a Western Saloon. Has the entire wild wild west thang going on with that "perfumey" smell. I always think Cactus when I smell these, although I am not sure I have ever really smelled one. I smell wood...any wood-y (heehee) scent doesn't do it for me.

 

Love Spring Equinox 2009 I don't know about this one. I generally like floral scents...but this one is too cutesy floral. Smells a bit powdery and over done to me. I'm not sure. I will need to cleanse my sniffer and try it again in a few days.

 

 

21 Century Venus Smells like a trendy fine perfume. Something all the girls at Banana Republic would wear. Stylish.

 

Neanderilicious Has something in it that doesn't work with me..I'm not sure what it is. Maybe it's not girlie enough of a scent. I want to try it on my target, but I'm afraid he will be unenthused about the scent. It's just so not me. It's got something in it that is kind of "wood"ish...which I always equate as kind of boyish.

 

Tail I already reviewed this one and I STILL LOVE IT!!!

 

CuddleBunny! I LOVE it! I can't wait to whip this one out on my little victim. It's a very safe fragrance. Not too floral, not too perfumey. Very subtle and feminine. It's pretty, delicate, flowery but not overwhelming, fresh as daisy, clean and exciting. I can't imagine anyone disliking it. Can't smell the COPS and that's always a good thing.

Geena,

 

Be sure to try to layer the ones you are not so fond of. You would be surprised the depth you can achieve with layering. BTW, we have very much the same taste. Lover's Reunion is one that I wore for the magical purposes, but I fell in love with the fragrance after awhile! Night of the Fae and Kingdom of Dreams are two of my faves!

I LOVE these reviews, Geena. Good and bad, you made me laugh out loud. And now I get a really good picture of what you like : fruity florals, but the more sophisticated ones - not teenager-y sweet.

 

I bet you'll get some good suggestions from the other ladies regarding what you might like based upon your reviews. Good job, honey!

 

Remember, we've got a very active trading post, so you should have no prob swapping the ones you are not fond of.

Oh, ps: Green Shield - the loudest flower in it is Daffodils.

Heehee. I'm glad I could amuse. 12th night is a very abstract scent though. I smell it and my life flashes before my eyes. lol I just smell so many things in it! I'd say it's a complicated fragrance.

 

Experimenting with these fragrances is tons of fun. I wore Kingdom of Dreams spiked with Blatant Invitation. I love the smell of this one and I'm beginning to think it's my very favorite so far. However Im unsure if it fades on me or if I stop smelling it after awhile. I am applying it like Mara had instructed...I put 2 strips of it down my cleaveage to bellybutton and rub it in with my wrists and then I dab maybe twice on my neck. I'm always unsure how strong it smells. I can't seem to be able to gauge it like I do alcohol fragrances. I am noticing that I get wild hits with the LP pheros in intimate settings or where I am with a person in close proximity for at least 10 minutes or so. I don't seem to get as much as the pass-by hits as I did with Instant Sexiness A. You know..when I'm walking through homedepot or a grocery store, I felt I got more random hits from random strangers. It just seems that those alcohol based pheros are getting to their brains quicker or something. Anyone have suggestions on how I can wear these pheros better?? This is the first time I have experimented with wearing oil-based pheros. Oh actually I did Scent of Eros before too...and ran into the same problem.

 

Oh one other question. If in the future I wanted to spike a full size bottle with EOW...how many drops or what percentage of the bottle of EOW would you put in a bottle of fragrance? I dont like putting on EOW and then fragrance over it because I just don't like handling straight EOW and have no luck in mixing it that way. How are you spiking your bottles with EOW?

Yeh, I'm not anticipating having any problems swapping. Most of the big bottles I got I really love but I'm still not sure about Neanderlicious and Lover's reunion. It was the tiny samples that were more off my regular beaten path.

 

Several of the scents I love so much that I could possibly replace my beloved Vera Wang Bouquet perfume. Several of these I got, I like just as much!! I was contemplating looking at the Notes for Bouquet and see if I can get you ladies to mix something up in the future that might be kinda-sorta similar.

 

Here's Bouquets description. The fragrance brings the notes of dew drops, Sicilian bergamot, and black currant leaf. The heart is composed of white narcissus and honeysuckle, while the base of lavender accords, musk, Moroccan cedarwood, and white iris root.

 

Dew drops? Do they mean actual "dew drops"? Hmm that's quite a lot of stuff in the ingredients.

 

Anyway, I have found several fragrances that I am enchanted with...which is HUGE for me...because when I go to the perfume store...I am lucky if I find 2 or 3 that I like.

The answer to that is: as much as the fragrance will allow. It's usually around 10% of the bottle, but I may go a little higher or a little lower at my discretion based upon the qualities of the perfume. A very sheer fragrance can't handle that much, while some heavier fragrances mask it so well you can get away with a heavier dose.

 

ETA:

If you're playing with mixing EoW into your own commercial alcohol-based perfumes at home, here's advice from the manufacturer, Dr. Stone: 6-10 drops per 10 mls of cologne.

 

We can get away with 2-3x that amount when mixing with oil because the whole thing lays closer to the skin. With alcohol, it's all up in the air so you need to be a little more conservative to get the right balance.

Thanks for the help with EOW, Mara! One last question. If I manage to get the rollerball out to spike my perfume...can I get it back in or is it pretty much destroyed from being stretched out?

I've decanted from my roller bottles before, and I think as long as you do it *gently* i.e. don't warp it too much in the process...they should be fine. I usually just use a thin cotton cloth and grip the top of the bottle, twist and wiggle it a bit (the bottle of course) to get it out.

Don't try to remove just the ball - remove the entire piece of plastic together.

As Katz says, you can probably remove the whole thing by hand with the aid of a slip-free piece of cloth or rubber, but I do it every day with a pair of scissors. I carefully edge the blades between the plastic and glass, and easily lift the plastic piece right out (using the scissor blades as a plier-like grip), and then drop the whole piece of plastic into the black cap while I work. It's easy to push the plastic back in once done. There shouldn't be any damage at all.

Good reviews Geena....gave me a good giggle! Everybody's chemistry and likes/dislikes are different....but you will probably find that trading is very easy here, so if you have something you don't care for, chances are sombedoy else here loves it!

 

Glad that you found some that you like!!

Thanks for the review. You may be my complete opposite fragrance-wise, I love amber, honey, pachouli and foodey scents. I can't stand clean, the smutter and more wicked the better. I need to checkout Miasma and Tantric Butterfly.....

Welcome Geena. One thing I experienced when I started wearing LP perfumes was a complete transformation of my taste in perfume over a period of a few months. Things I thought were weird or not me at first eventually became some of my favorites.

 

So you might hang onto some of the ones that aren't your favorites and give them another try in a few weeks, just in case the same thing happens to you.

 

Also be sure and try everything on your skin, because some of the perfumes change alot when worn.

i very much enjoyed your reviews.

your personal nose and interpretations added so much to these perfumes.

i love 12th night, and have a bottle coming via the fantabulous djac. but i also agree with your wicked impressions about it. i think it helps a tonm to rwead an honest, impression review like yours, other gals can sniff out what u prefer in notes and gage their opinion accordingly to a particular scent from LPMP.

you've inspired me!

don't hold back Geena....just tell us what you feel ! LOL

ditto ! your honesty and interpretation is refreshing and you're quite funny too ! :10_small16:

 

I tend to hold back or not post an opinion, I'm chicken !

and as Xev stated, your nose may change, mine did a bit and now find myself wearing scents I wouldn't have never given a 2nd thought. I also let them "age" a bit and if it STILL doesn't do it for me then I give 'em away....just a thought. Keep 'em comin' !

...but it's a softcore hippie who shaves her pits and does her nails.

12th Night Confuses me. It's the scent of chaos. I smell chocolate, then I smell leather, I smell the medicine my mother used to smear on my baby brother's balls and bum when he was in diapers. It's like Clockwork Orange flash movies...all these scent memories that I can't pin down....I think I can pin it down...but then it morphs into another. I wouldn't want to smell like this...its kind of unisex. It's kinda disturbing. Oh I just smelled bellpepper. I'd name this stuff "WTF?"

 

 

LMAO. Youre hilarious hehe. I wanted to read your review all the way through before responding but had to stop here and reply first. I kinda want to try out 12th Night because of the WTF factor now, to see if I have a similair experience. I don't know all the notes stuff either and am very Like Love Eh and HATE when sniffing perfumes. The Tantric, it was wayyy strong with my first application I think I put way too much on, crazy thing is though when I went into Vitamin Cottage the scent blended and disappeared on me..because the Vitamin Cottage I go to out here..smells like a hippie shop lol. Im wearing it today(on much lighter) and am finding I actually like it now. Have you given any of these another go and changed your opinion on them since you wrote this?

Hysterical...

 

I remember my first LP sample hoard. I was so confused, I hated most of them at first contact. Of course, in the intervening time some of those have become favorites.

 

And you shouldn't have a hard time trading - heck you're practically my scent opposite.

Just a quick update to my review. First I'd like to say that Bam Orchid Rose is a much much more subtle lighter scent than when I first thought. I really love it and it blends well with all the "greener" perfumes I have. I get some great hits with the stuff from both women and men. It seems to bring me out of my shell a bit. Blends so well with my favorite green and "clean" smelling fragrances.

 

Blatant Invitation. O M to the Geeee! This stuff is DA Bomb! I'm getting soo many hits with it. Men are total stupid puppies with this stuff. I'm loving it. Loads of attention! I get hits with both Lam and Bam but B.I. is off the hook. I want to spike everything and anything with Blatant Invitation!

Oh if you don't have BI..you need to try it! I get so many hits with it. Instant Sexiness, LAM and Cops I get hits..but I swear I get triple the amount with BI. Unfortunately, my target doesn't react much to stuff unless there is EST in it. But we did a blind test. He put Kingdom of Dreams sample on me (with no BI) and Kingdom of Dreams with BI on me one day and I had no idea which. (Put the sample in an empty roller bottle and closed my eyes as he applied) The day I was wearing BI, I had a young waiter pretty much staring at me the entire meal. I had men preening like peacocks. Guys circling liked dopey little vultures. Deer in the headlights from all ages. They zone out and forget to look away. Hits were so obvious, he noticed them. The day without the BI was just same ol. I smelled the same but I knew without a doubt which day I didn't have the pheros on. He immediately told me to stop wearing that stuff. Whatever, sucka! He doesn't want to bring me some Golden Grahams from the market or run some errand for me, I send a text. "Fine. I'll go get it myself...wearing my MONES! "

He's scared of that little blue bottle of Kingdom of Dreams.

 

I can not wait until it comes out in spray. teehee
