Far, Far Away with Audacious

Recommended Posts

While this is a perfectly lovely floral, I find it is not my "thing". Fruity floral lovers, this is for YOU! The berries stay strong and tart, for my skin...as well the floral notes stay strong. I'm not projecting any of the base notes (which is odd for me)... I'll wait for a more foody blend to try this phero out with, or maybe just add it to one of the wonderful LP colors, LP Red?

This is a Beccah scent. The raspberry is coming off strongest from the vial with an undercurrent of spices. It smells like desert.

A surprise winner! I love berries and musk, and that's exactly what I get with this one. I don't get too much spice with this one, and the florals stay just below the surface for me. I can't wait to test drive the phero!

I ADORE This one! Omg it feels so very pirate princess to me. Something juicy and delicious. It makes me very happy and upbeat. As soon as it hit my skin I felt so pretty and feminine like I naturally smell like this. It's not overly floral it's absolutely perfect!! This reminds me of Princess Bride or Marie Antoinette having tea on a ship in Malta.

PHERO: made me feel princessy -- very femme- I literally LOOKED DIFFERENT to myself in the mirror, hard to explain; but also a little bit haughty/better-than-thou, like the way WTL made me feel last time I tried it. I could use this effect believe me, and it's cheaper than therapy. I LIKE.

 

SCENT: obvious cousin of Perty Flirty; started out more melony and spicy, but dried down it's quite similar - a bit powderier and feels more classical. Smells French... a Fragonard-bedecked, flower-filled castle bedroom. ETA I see there is no melon in this- that must have been my nose's interpretation of the raspberry which I'm so glad doesn't go plastic-fantastic on me in this, I suspect because of the violet.

 

So phero+scent= stunningly effective and congruent with each other & the name/intent. Spectacular

I have a sample of this, can't wait to try. Do you all think it's great for the self effects? Or should I wait and try when I'm out in public? Have you seen any effect on others?

Mmmmm kay, I wore this one today. I didn't get those ultra femme like feelings others described, but I did feel very confident. Not cocky. No swagger like SSW gives me, just self assured. A little spacey though. I will wait a couple weeks and test again.

Ugh, I so want to like this one but I can't. I get rasberry floral in the beginning and think, ok, not my thing but it's pretty enough, I can do this. Within 5 minutes a spice comes out that ruins it for me. It smells like skin that's been heavily self tanned. Kind of a hot smell covered with fruity floralness. It's very complex but I just can't take it. This is a smell I tried hard to cover for many years. I can't go back to it, at least not without the tan ;)

Halo, wish that were true for me. YOu can have my chemistry on th is one. I don't detect ANY spice, (dang)

 

RASPBERRY ~ Love inducing, protection, stamina, vigor.

VIOLET ~ Love, faithfulness, modesty; calming, balancing, healing, protection, draws luck & fortune, lust.

ORCHID ~ Strong love symbol; beauty, refinement, fertility, creativity, psychic powers.(This is what amps on me)

SUGAR ~ Attracts love, luck, sweetness and riches. Lust inducing.

MYRRH ~ Stimulating, soothing. Powerful guard against evil.

AMBER ~ Fertility, creativity, love, luck, riches.(not sure, but this may contribute to the "perfume-y" smell that I don't care for. Happens to me a lot and I think the culprit is amber, tho no way to tell yet.)

MUSK ~ Self confidence and strength, sexual attractant, heightens passions and arousal.

PATCHOULI ~ Soothes and uplifts; sensual, sexually stimulating, lust, fertility, money. Meditative and transforming.

CLOVE LEAF ~ Money attracting, deflects negative and hostile energies.

ORIENTAL SPICE ACCORD ~ Elegance, refinement.

 

This is too girly for me. But the redeeming quality is that I think I like the phero in it. Makes me feel like I want to be to the point (even more so than normal. and that I won't take crap from anyone.)

 

After I came downstairs from getting ready today, my teenaged daughter said I smelled good. then she liked my hair, then it was my outfit, then I smelled good, then my lipstick was cool. All within the span of 10 minutes,,,,

 

I waited for her to ask me for money but it didn't happen. Maybe the audacious..?

Well, the scent was a little much for me. I don't think violet is for me. I will definitely try it again down the road because I know I am being influenced by the fact that I want to wear Darling C everyday. I think this is a scent I would have appreciated more in my pre LPMP life but I am being dragged to the foody side of things these days. That said, it is not unpleasant just not what I am craving at the moment.

BUT THE PHERO!!!!!! LOVE IT!!!

 

I felt AMAZING yesterday. I have a hard time describing how I feel on pheros sometimes so the best I can do is say I felt extremely POSITIVE, ENERGETIC AND...HOPEFUL? I don't know but it was great. I would say I felt sort of "breathless" but that sounds weird. I guess just EXCITED about something yet nothing exciting was really going on? Let's just sum it up with POSITIVE ENERGY.

My mistake was wearing it to work. I am supposed to be helping people relax at my job...not want to take them out to party, so... WRONG ENVIRONMENT.

I will be trying my spray sample of Audacious today to run around town to compare but I will probably end up getting an UN scented in oil because I like the self effects of oil.

 

I know my scent review was not helpful at all but I couldn't wait to show off about how much I loved the phero.

This is sure to be my new dance mix... :banana091:

i think the phero averted what could have been a disastrous day today (ran into an ex with a new girl last night; woke up to pouring rain this morning). went out to lunch by myself at a restaurant i've been meaning to try for years & didn't feel lonely at all, and then got a ton of errands done & was happy to be doing it. not much more you could ask for there!

 

as for the scent it smelled great when i first applied (kind of like a more sophisticated, complex version of the bath & body works sweet pea lotion) but my skin ate it SO FAST. seriously, like, before it was even dry i couldn't smell it anymore. wtf chemistry, seriously, get your shit together! :(

I'm sad, so sad :( Though this one isn't a scent I'd pick to be a Rosebud scent just by the description, it's absolutely lovely. It's a very romantic & utterly feminine scent, the perfect mix of fruit & soft florals...but on me it unfortunately doesn't even last until drydown. My skin eats it up quicker than any LP has ever done before leaving just a very subtle "nice & clean" or "fresh out of the shower" like scent :(

I think Audacious made me very happy to watch videos from my extensive Trevor collection and drool and think, "Ah you tall dark brooding leather-panted stud, TAKE ME NAO!"

*ahem*

(I mean, more than usual. But damn, I got really horny watching "Shock To The System" from the Union Denver show and I know it's been rather long since I've had actual sex but I usually don't start humping the nearest hard surface when enjoying that one.)

 

Anyhoo, this is an upbeat scent to me: very tangy-berry at first and then the velvety violet in the middle, and kinda sweet-kinda spicy in the drydown. I don't know that it's really me (because I prefer really sugary violet) but I think it's very well-constructed.

It always amazes me how our chemistries are SO different. This is one of those scents that STAYS with me all day, like Cuddle Bunny. Come to think of it most florals do, but I don't like florals haha!

 

This one I am thinking of ordering a bottle of. The scent lasts long on me (a plus) and it's pretty good, though I could do without the Orchid, or whatever,, but it is a do-able floral for me. Clean smelling, not overly flowery. Upon application the first time my daughter gavre me like 3 compliments in a row on my hair, jeans, smell good, etc.

 

But I am thinnking I may be a fan of Audacious. I will keep testing this one. I felt teffiffic yestrday when I threw it on. Confident in a way that wasn't aggressive, but more of a "you can throw anything my way and I can handle it."

 

Capeable is more the word I'd use.

:lol: sparkle fuchsia is pretty much the only non-spicy one i don't eat! other than that really the only thing i can ever get to stick around on my skin is spicy stuff, which i don't particularly like & goes super incensey on me :(

The raspberry and the violet notes are the ones that I recognize the most. The clove and the myrrh hides just behind the sweet feminine notes and gives it a mysterious and opulent feel. I started to amp the clove and the musk after an hour or so. I'm not sure but I think this one is a "dirtier" musk, or it could be that I hadn't showered in a day with no sleep writing a paper :001_302:

 

the audacious though is interesting. i couldn't help but have a little swagger today. i had a cool attitude about me until i had crashed in the afternoon. in hindsight i felt like a female james dean, and that i could get away with leaning against walls, shrugging my shoulders, and uttering a nonchalant "whatever."

 

kinda how I felt. maybe with more clothes, less vengeance and vindictiveness. all attitude.

This one is very fruity and tangy at the opening, with the raspberry note stepping in first..followed by sugared resins and some oriental spice.

The tanginess settles down after the first 15 minutes and then a subtle violet emerges...and maybe some orchid? I honestly don't know how it smells...

 

It has a very interesting composition and I must say I was expecting a lot from FFA because Raspberry and Violet are among my favorite scent notes...Even though it starts out as a tangy fruity scent it morphs into a beautiful floral, but the tanginess stays there giving it a youthful glow...I love the overall feeling the resins and the spice add to it, because they add a layer of womanity... It feels feminine and coquettish...and the Audacious further enhances this feeling...

 

Nice projection/sillage and medium longevity

OMG moonholly! A friend of my family was the producer of that video--Christian Heuer. Isn't that just a FABULOUS way to do a music video?!? Okay, then, if Far, Far away made you feel like her, it's about time I got me some. Heh.

So... I'm not sure which note in here I'm not caring for... maybe the violet (I've never been a violet fan) or the orchid (haven't tried out many other orchids) but something in here is just attacking my nose. Like powdery/stabby when I sniff it.

However, I wanted Audacious so badly, I sprang for my first UN after trying this one - LOVE the way it makes me feel - like I can take on the world!

I wore this today at the nail salon, and here is a shortened version of my pherotruth journal entry....I didnt really notice too much of anything. But I was only out a short while. I had (still have) a huge headache, but needed a pedicure. I walk into the salon, the owner (Jen, a younger (late 20's early 30's) Vietnamese woman) looks up from her station (she is doing a manicure) and says hello, and asks what I need. I told her a pedi, and as usual, she tells me to pick a polish color from the racks, and have a seat at the pedicure station. As I'm looking for a polish color (across the salon), I hear her enthusiastically say 'Look at this color,' Remember, she is with a client. I turn around, and see her stop what she's doing, and walk over to me with a color...magenta pink...my usual color...AND there are several bottles on the rack of the EXACT same color...so As she is handing me the bottle to look at, she says 'Look at this color, its very pretty, and new, see?' She points down to her freshly painted toes. I take the bottle and say 'Thank you.'

 

I have been going to this salon for YEARS, and she has never recommended a color, mind you, I usually get pinks/peaches/reds if I'm feeling bold, colors, but my usual color is this magenta pink she handed me, and she should know since I usual have her, or her sister do my nails. Why would she walk ALL the way across the salon..to show my usual color? And the same color that is on the rack...in several bottles? Could this be coincidence? Possibly, Jen got the Girl power/fem/princess vibe from me, and was insistent for me to color my nails, a girly, bold hot pink?

 

As I sit down to get my pedicure, I noticed another client looking at me, and smiling. While 'in the hot seat,' I was too busy playing on my phone to notice anything, but did see (in my peripheral) the salon worker (I dont know her name) keep looking up at me as she did my pedi. After my pedicure, I decided to get it over with and get a manicure with Jen. I sit at her station, and immediately think she is annoyed. She usually gives off a bubbly vibe, like how she was when she offered me the polish color. And she usually seems 'bubbly' even without speaking. I never really have conversations with Jen because I've learned when you are chatty with nail technicians, they tend to fuck up your mani/pedi. So the words we usually share involve a greeting, what I want, how much itll be, and a goodbye/thank you when I'm done. Occasionally we'll talk, but I usually dont engage first, though she has never really seemed annoyed/mad when I've seen her. Could her seemingly annoyance/mad attitude be caused by the androstenone/cops combo in Audacious? She was abnormally friendly when I first came in, but her demeanor changed when I sat down at her station (45mins or so after I came in).

 

The scent on me is a Tangy/floral/soapy/powdery scent. Its not bad, but not typically the scent I would wear. My mood didnt get a boost either, but I have had a headache since I woke up, so maybe thats why? More testing is needed for this one! If anything, pheromones definitely make ME more aware of others around me. lol!

That's.... Awesome! I felt more like the song could be my theme that day rather than feeling like her, per say. I was looking for a video of the song mostly, but the music video turned out to be fun and silly I had to post. The Christian Sirano gag kills.

This stuff makes me feel like kicking ass. I love it. The perfume itself gives me a little headache, but I'm willing to pop a handful of Advil to take advantage of the yumminess, and to feel those phero effects. BF LOVES this fragrance, too - he's always sniffing me when I wear it. :) Like a puppy.

I finally obtained some of this, and I luuurrrrve it! I think I've worn it 3 times. The scent is totally "me," and the phero makes me feel...more forward and bubbly, and more conversational. More commanding. People around me sort of join in the conversation with interest. I've only worn moderate amounts so far. This is good stuff!

Does anyone know if you could wear Far, Far Away with something like Portmenteau? I know it sounds kind of strange, but I love Portmanteau (I'm going to review it over in the appropriate thread soon). I just don't know that I have as much confidence as I would like while wearing it. Would the phero blends enhance each other or be more likely to conflict/cancel each other out? The scents might be a bit weird together, but I could deal with that, I just want the best of both phero worlds! My TG responds unfailingly to the Perfect Match, but I need to feel "Audacious" in order to take it to the next level! If this wouldn't work, is there some recommendation of something I could try? I really don't want to lose momentum with this guy! He seems to hover in my vacinity and speak to me more, but I still can't get the nerve to be really out there. Help, please?!

You don't want to wear two conflicting scents ever. Nothing will drive people away faster. Have you tested them together to see if they smell ok together?

 

As far as phero blends..again, we do not encourage mixing them. Some simple ones are ok...if you're just amping alpha-nol or est or cops, but the balance of them and intent of them is ruined with blending.

I wouldn't want to drive people away or ruin the LP's and their varied intents :wacko: I defer to your wisdom and will refrain from messing with perfection. I'll just have to figure out what works best and when. Uggg! I have a lot to learn!

 

I guess I'll be conducting experiments with "Far,Far Away" by itself really soon.

Ok so this one is super fruite at first, more like melon type of fruity. They then resins kick in. It is very sweet, and so far pretty strong.

It is a lovely scent but not sure it is for me.

As far as pheros go, I can't say much about that. No clear self effects so far, need more testing.
