BUTTONWOOD ~ Aids in assimilation in inhospitable environments, steadfastness, reliability, tolerance.

OSMANTHUS ~ Potency, healing, peace, protection.

OLIVE LEAF ~ Peace, power, potency, fertility, healing, protection.

VANILLA (dry, non-foody) ~ Aphrodisiac, inspires happiness, playfulness, sexual arousal, lust, vitalizing.

DRY POWDERED SUGAR ~ Attracts love, luck, sweetness and riches

 

This is definitely unisex. I get the wood right off tempered with the Osmathus. If i sniff really closely i pick up the sheer powdery vanilla and a teensy bit of the sugar. All and all it's a tad too masculine for me. It's really fresh and complex. Reminds me of CKOne in it's unisex-ness.

I like the scent, but it's very very faint on me... vanilla woodsy is usually right up my alley! I might have to try this in a spray, which for me sometimes gives me better scent-projection. I have felt relatively *calm* today, and have had more than my share of reasons to be irritated.

Although it's in the Women's Pheromones & Phero Fragrance Reviews I figured it's an unisex blend so it'll be alright :rolleyes:. I tested this today and I really like the scent. I'm a fan of the freshness of it. After a while it becomes softer on me but I like that as well.

 

About the phero's... I work in an IT office that's full of testosterone and hidden agenda's and today was a day full of meeting in which I needed agreement on things. People seemed to be more relaxed than normal and I got good result.. I'll try it again in a couple of days and see how that day turns out..

At first I didn't think of the self-effects actually.. Now I think about it I was a bit "softer" and "pettable" then I usually am at work.... I'm a sensitive guy but in the whole male testosterone thing I usually get caught up in the whole "male dynamics", lol.... Didn't seem to happen to me that day....Maybe that made a difference as well... potent stuff..

 

Can't stop thinking about Finding Nemo btw.: "Fish are friends, not food.." :shark825:

This is a very nice scent, not too masculine, not too feminine. Loved it in the vial and the first five minutes on my skin. After then, though, some note came out that smelled exactly like my hellish ex-boss' cologne. I had flashbacks!! It was still a very nice scent,and I loved it, but the memories. Oy veh! The vanilla eventually came out, thank goodness, and covered that note.

 

I will gladly deal with it though because I love this phero! I don't know that i noticed much affect on others because I was consumed with the self effects. I felt very calm, confident, and in control, but not overbearing. Come to think of it, I did have an interaction with our IT department that could have been very confrontational that turned out very well. They listened to what I had to say and we were able to come up with a mutually satisfactory solution. A real winner!

Part of it. We got that fixed, and we had such a rapport going that I busted out a laundry list of things that needed to be worked on. As for punishment for the involved parties, the non-IT person was counseled about his actions, and i don't know what will happen to the IT person. It's confusing and not the best structure, but IT is a whole different sub-agency from the rest of us with a whole different reporting structure, so they aren't obligated to tell us what happened with him. That said...if this dude is still in his probationary period, he's a goner. They don't play around with that kind of stuff.

What were the self-effects you experienced?

 

Another IT person here. But I'm in an office full of women which is worse than one full of men, and I am absolutely burnt out on the insane beotches and office politics garbage. We are transitioning to another system and if something doesn't change after we're on it, I'm finding something else. Hopefully in another field entirely! Now that I got that out of my system, back to your regularly scheduled thread..... :hearts09793:

I'm sorry for my noob question, but why does it work better as a spray?

For me, sometimes the scents that don't project much as an oil, when blended w/alcohol as a spray (and you can get the kit to do so HERE (at the bottom of the page) seem to 'get out there' better, more diffusion into the air as a spray.

Hmmm.... Not sure this is for me scent-wise. Normally I'd be all over something with vanilla, but this one is a bit too unisex for my liking....on me that is. I'd LOOOOVE this one on my Mr Scrumptious though :D

@Katz: Thanks, that explains a lot. Since I liked the scent and the phero's sooo much I ordered it in regular size. I ordered the scent without the phero's cause I probably want to wear it without the phero's as well. Still had to make a decision about the phero's, what to do what to do.....Luckely I was in this buying "mode" so I bought the phero's as a spray as well. Gaia advised me to buy the spray as well for the phero's, much easier that way.

 

Come to think of it...If you order a non phero scent, does that mean it'll be a spray, or will it be an oil? I couldn't recall having an option when I clicked it...

It depends on how it's offered, although you can always have any scent made into a spray.

Ok, don't exactly know how it's offered but it'll be fine either way. I'll ask Gaia if she wants to make me a spray out of it if it arrives as an oil. :thumbup: Can't wait for it to get here, there's a present for her in there as well.. Did I just say that out loud...? Lol. She knows it already so it's not as much of a secret anymore :) .

Surprise folks, I like this scent. Very comfortable and soft and mmmm. I put it on 2 of my friends and it is different on them. A little brighter on one. Little more powder on the other. We all like it. Can't speak to the phero - yet. :)

Is that you, G-man? If so, very nice!

 

*Most* of the non-phero scents are in oil form. *Sometimes* we have a phero-laced scent offered as a spray right off the bat, like Rainbow Falls It's up to the discretion of the creator which format it takes...but like Luna said, one can always request it be bottled as a spray HERE -second item down from the top. Hope you enjoy teh sharkies! I've got it on today as discretion and obedience are needed.

This was too soapy/sharp on me - which I figured it would be - although it has an interesting sweet character in the vial. Quince said it was too floral on him; I didn't think so, it was just soapy to me, but neither of us appeared to be affected by the tolerance-enhancing abilities of the buttonwood. :lol:

"It's fine, you just smell like expensive soap."

"Posh soap with flowers in it which I do not use because I am not a fop."

"Despite the Yank hoards believing every Limey man is a fop, you mean?"

"Present company excluded, I should hope."

The scent comes off suuuuuuper powdery on me. It's okay though, not so much in a bad way - especially for work as it doesn't smell like an intentionally applied scent. Just a powdery clean. :) I'm very curious about what it would smell like on a man... I think I'd want to bury my face in him, lol.

 

The phero seems to build effects on me? The first couple times I tried it I did not notice much of a difference in myself or people around me. Yesterday though, it sure knocked a beast flat on his back - the most maniac, difficult, crazed coworker you will ever meet in your life, who I spent many an hour fighting with leading up to & during the holiday weekend, suddenly decided he wanted to cooperate with everything I say. Effects continued through to today, and I noticed I was far more productive in a self-assured way today as well. This is worth its weight in gold for taming that coworker alone...

Yup..thanks :)

 

Thanks for the information, it's very helpful.

 

The scent turned out to be an oil but luckily Gaia made a spray out of it for me *yay*. The scent comes out a bit more bright with the spray, which I actually like. I've tested the phero part again at work and got some great results out of it.

 

I was in this meeting where I needed to review my work with co-workers. They are usually quite difficult and narrow minded and not willing to look at things from a different point of view. This time however, they were!! We had this constructive review session and I even got my design choices to stick.

 

Excellent stuff :D

This is a bit too masculine for my taste though it is still def. unisex. I prefer Oleander the Great on me but my Dad and guy tried this version out and they are loving it and it really does smell so much better on them, they wear it well. For the effects I get great results. People seem to give me more respect which helps A LOT b/c I have this young girlish voice (though I'm in my mid-20's) plus I'm still working on my assertiveness so the combo doesn't help but SWS sure does. People just LISTEN and don't cut me off and I think they actually take into consideration WHAT I am saying. My Dad didn't notice any hits but he is very assertive, very bold and so he might not be getting dramatic hits like I've been getting. The boy hasn't tested this out in public yet so we'll see about him later.

I love how clean and salty this smells. It smells like a cotton bed by the ocean, you know those ones with the curtains that they have on the vacation commercials for Sandals Resorts that make you cry ..

I applied some of this about ten minutes ago and just my luck my new Sheboss that I shall refer to as Vangs Deuce

Vagina + Fangs X 2!!!!! = Vangs Duece came over and I thought to ride me nasty with no vaseline, but she just smiled and was sweet. I felt a HUGE sigh of relief...

NEW fave to wear to work!!!

I had a girl who I was ordering food from OBSESS over this the other day!! i mean she was like, you need to tell me what that is and where you got it NOW, LOL. so i did :D maybe she will come join?? eh?? :)

 

interestingly enough she said it smelled like tahitian vanilla. and i smelled myself - and it did!!! i think i was PMSing (without going into TMI, the certain sign of having been PMSing did not follow.... but i did turn into the craziest psychotic hormonal disaster i have EVER several hours after this encounter, so SOMETHING was going on with my hormones) so i suppose it makes sense my body turned this into something totally opposite what it's been. it was almost creamy!! i think i've already said this around here like twice, lol, but it totally amazes me how one's body chemistry can shift so much.

I brought this as a sample and really love the scent and the self effects.

I wore it to an Interview and I felt very calm, confident, and in control. I also found when i wear it i'm very motivated and tend to get a lot done.

Definately will now be part of my stable for work, definately buying a few bottles!

I just got a sample of this today, and when I sniffed it from the vial, I experienced a vivid flash of an ex-boyfriend. 9 years ago I spent a few months in Mexico and fell head over heels in love with a gorgeous guy called Diego, with whom I'm still in touch today. This perfume smells like him, and I love it. It makes me feel swoon-y and erotic, just like he did.

 

Somehow I don't think I'll be able to work while wearing this. Lol... I'd be too distracted thinking about my beautiful, sexy Mexican ex-lover. Dammit... I think I need to write a letter. Now.

 

Thank you for making this. Scent evocation is a wonderful thing. ;)

 

ETA, I just realized that this is available as an un-phero'd perfume. I think I need to get me some! Woohoo!

Well, I broke down and wore this to work today. In the vial it still smells like gorgeous, sexy ex-boyfriend, and I will always keep a vial of this just to remind me of how Diego smelled.

 

On me though, it was so not what I expected. I really thought the man-soap-y smell would play out on my skin, (because my skin usually runs with those kinds of scents), but it turned into something gorgeous that I'm not even sure I can describe. It's faint enough that it doesn't overwhelm - so it won't interfere with the clientele's food, which in my line of work is priority number one. It sticks pretty close to my body, (I actually had to search for it, even just a moment after I put it on), yet when I was getting some cream or something in the walk-in fridge, one of the kitchen guys was in there too, sniffing the air behind me. Finally he laughed and said, "Jeez, you smell purdy." No one else commented on it though - so I will try wearing it again, maybe tomorrow.

 

I'm not sure about the phero aspect. My problems at work are normally few and far between, even with crazy, psycho Chef and uptight manager. But it would be nice to have this to wear as extra 'protection' when either one of them is in a snarky mood.

I've had a sample of this forever but have yet to wear it. Today is the day. It is a clean, unisex kind of dry vanilla. I can smell the woods. Maybe a bit of the osmanthus. I really like it.

Yes. I scored 1/2 a bottle a long time ago. That's one I've forgotten about. I like it. It's refreshing, a little bracing and smells like a feminine unisex scent. One of those I just took a power shower now I'm really ready to kick some ass scents.
