I was scared of the florals in this, but it sounded so elegant, I had to get a sample anyway. It sounds so good! I'm glad I ordered a sample and I can't wait till it gets here. :love:

Tore into this while I was reading a recipe for "Frozen Coconut Limeade" so now my brain is trying to read the vanilla and amber in this into being coconut. Though I can say I would love a suntan oil that smelled like this!

I love this! The floral notes don't stand out. They just make the marshmallow-amber-musk base seem more elegant. Smelling this makes me want to get married. It's like a beautiful wedding cake. I need a full bottle!

Sometimes it seems like all I ever do is (1) say that things smell like LP Silver - always a compliment as that's an all time fav, and (2) laundry. Well, here I go again (with both). Wet & early on, this is a slightly more white-floral & yet creamier (like heavy whipping cream) version of LP Silver on me. Deep into drydown, now, it's a tiny bit sweeter than LP Silver (must be the marshmallow).

I can't wait to try this one. It smells so good in the vial. But, alas, I am wearing Gold....

I love this! Of course, I knew it was going to be a winner. You can't go wrong with the vanilla and musk combo. The florals aren't heavy at all, It smells like how a cloud might smell.

 

Now for the bizarre...I don't know what's going on, but for some reason, this smells very similar Spinnerett does after the strawberry fades. Treasure of Pearls is creamier and the musk is deeper, but otherwise they smell strangely similar, like fluff. I don't understand why, as the only thing they have in common is the musk. :huh:

I noticed that too. I think I saw that on another one that said Indian Red Musk but it wasn't in ingredients.

I do love this one Liz!! Full bottle for me as well!

You'll Love it! I don't know what water lilies smell like, I can only compare it to the other water lily scent that I have and adore which is Flowers in The Moat- and to me they both smell like sugary water icicles

When I put this on I was immediately reminded of something else but I couldn't think what. Then a few minutes later it hit me: Sugared Orchids. It's not exact, but if you like that one (as I do) then you need to get this, it's that same evocation of lush creamy orchid on a fluffy sweet pillow. That's all I get, really, but then again orchid usually rules a blend for me.

When I was done brewing it, I was surprised that it reminded me most of Vampire Bait, which is one of my personal all-time faves...but I didn't expect to arrive there with the notes I combined.

Very pretty, almost sheer. I definitely get the florals. It's gorgeous, but not very me, I'm afraid.

This is really good! From first sniff, it reminds me of LP Silver. This one is even better. Creamy orchids, vanilla, sugar, wow, on the skin its even better than in the vial. It also reminds me of yet another parfume/PE: Ajia's Amber & Vanilla Orchid, I think. Anyway, I love this one. :love:

It reminds me of Silver also, I even get a minty note on my skin, but there's no mint. Maybe the mica...?

This is my favorite so far. Probably because it's the sweetest and the florals are far in the background. It lies very close to the skin, marshmallow-fluffy. I can see where this would be lovely boosted with something like Tranquility.

Wasn't sure I was ready to switch to a spring floral but this was extremely nice today. Reminds me of LP Silver and Hoyden and Silken Moonlight. I seem to only get a very light sweet floral. This one linnnnnnnnnnnngers. The dab this morning is still going strong 14 hours later. Beautiful scent.

How much cake? I like the idea of cake/frosting, but am scared of the Orchid...

BV, I consider you my scent twin. (you like pinks and spicies right?) How much floral and amber are we talkin? Do you get a spicier marshamallow or more floral amber?

Don't be scared of the floral! This is not a scent that screams floral at all, it is very subtle. It's so well blended together so you won't smell like old lady flowers. It's also not spicy at all. I think you should get a sample because it is very beautiful!

I LOVE Vampire Bait. I'm thinking of trying this out just based on this. ^_^

I thought for sure I had reviewed this... I love this one!! I agree with Tyvey, it does kind of remind me of LP Silver (a fave of mine, too!) This is a fluffy vanilla marshmallow, with yummy florals on top. The florals are not overpowering at all. Love the musk and amber! This has great lasting power on me, too. I definitely need a bottle!

This is pretty...and I get the notes everyone is talking about. And it *should* be a win for me. But for some reason, my chemistry makes it not as perfect as I'd thought it would be. However, I DO like it, so I'm going to let it age for a bit and try it again. Hmmmmm. Think I'll try it over cops! B)

Something was "off" with this one for me too. Not sure what especially since I love Vampire Bait. Maybe it has the dreaded white musk in it?

White musk is usually okay for me...at least I *think* it is. But last time I tried Vampire bait, it didn't completely work on me. Ah well, skin chemistry is odd. With all the Treasure scents, there'll be a favorite for everyone somewhere in the batch! So far, I've tried this, Amethyst, and Aquamarine, and those two are my faves, with Amethyst at the top. Am having a ball trying them all one by one! Oh and Mermaids looks like it'll be another big win...need to test it some more for real. :heart: Edited by ElizabethOSP

I think only my skin turns white musk into the "dreaded white musk". :(

 

But it certainly helps to narrow my orders down that's for sure. I am also still trying to decide which is my favorite Treasure!

No I have that issue too with some types, they go too soapy or sharp on me.

This is a super-soft, delicate scent. It's sweet with a tiny hint of florals floating around, and it just makes me want to smell it all day! I kind of get a little hint of fruit from it, too, but I must be mistaken on that.

 

The perfume in the bottle is beautiful, too, all shimmery and swirly.

I wore this out to dinner tonight, and I couldn't stop sniffling and sneezing. Either I'm coming down with something, or my nose has decided to become sensitive to this :(

I ADORE this little treasure. I"ll put it on in the morning and can still smell it long after the day is through. Also, I really hate floral scents, so I'm forever greatful that they stay in the background. I got a FULL bottle and I think I need to get a few more. Mmm, mmm, mmm good!

This is pretty much exactly what I was going to say! Very like LP Silver, really like this, wish I'd gotten a bottle.
