I'm thinking of having this added to a fragrance now that La Sylphide is gone. :fright04238:

I'm looking for your advice/suggestions on whether I should do that (and which fragrances you'd add it to) or if I'd be better to get this unscented one and use with fragrance as desired.

Some people get boosted fragrances. Personally I prefer the versatility of UNs so I can wear them with whatever scent I am in the mood for. I would say since you're new and don't know how each phero works on you you should try UNs or phero enhanced fragrances. What if the phero doesn't agree with you? You're stuck with a perfume you love with a phero you don't.

Donsie I have this one unscented, and I love it. Since I wear it alot (probably more than all the other blends combined, honestly) I got a pretty good idea of how much to wear pretty quickly. I think there are still unscented trials available on the artfire site if you don't want to pay for a full bottle right off the bat. But I also think I read that there is actually more La Sylphide available now, so if you'd rather try it in a fragrance you might be able to get a bottle.

Halo has a good point. LFM was my first phero ever and still a fav I swear by. I have it Un in both roll on and Spray. It's great.

 

I also would like to point out a big FYI to those of you who have never tried it..

Sensual Harmony is one great LP. It has the same essential notes as La Sylphide but it's richer and IMO sexier. You can still grab a bottle on the AF site.

This is a staple, so I would use whatever I boosted it with often, lol. But I have it unscented exactly because of that too. I like the versatility of using it with whatever I want...

I'm worried about not having the scent as a guide and using too much of the phero because I'm a newbie, which is why I was considering a boosted fragrance. But you make a good point!

It looked like it was gone again but now it seems to be back, so I might even try both the UN and La Sylphide. This seems like one of the UNs with the most popular appeal. Do you have yours in a spray or oil?

 

 

Edited to add: Thanks Stacy and NuTrix - I only saw your posts after I replied but they are nudging me toward the UN route!

All my LFM is in oil - un & perfumed. This would be a great spray though and it's always been easier for me, personally, to find my "sweet spot" with sprays. But every spray I've ever gotten in un, I've always wound up lightly scenting because I'm always using it on my clothes or in my hair (I love Pure Sugar for that - it's so light and easy to layer with any other scent...all it takes is 1 trial vial to lightly scent a whole 1oz bottle)

OK, today was my first serious outing with La Femme Mystere -- I put three spritzes of La Syphide on the back of my neck and each side of my throat,and one spritz on my wrists, which I rubbed together. Then I went to do my retail day.

 

I know people have said this is the best shopping phero; it's now officially the best one I've found for being on the other side of the counter! Every transaction, people were extremely polite and appreciative. I had the experience a few times with customers who I spotted as being potentially kind of icky (nothing outrageous, but every once in a while with tourists you get people who treat you disrespectfully and it always takes it out of me) and it was like.... I can't quite describe it, but it was as if they couldn't help themselves and were surprised to find how nice they were being to me!

 

I mentioned in another thread that when I wear Levitation, for example, customers react very well in terms of good mood, etc., but they tend to settle in for long conversations and resist hints to move it along. Not with LFM!

 

What I really liked about this one was that it let me feel both feminine and beautiful, but also totally in control. It's an interesting contrast to SS4W, which I also find works well in that setting, but that one can leave me feeling just the tiniest bit vulnerable if the other person has a more intense reaction, or seems inclined to linger too long. LFM makes me feel powerful, in a very calm, confident way. It leaves room to act playful without ever relinquishing the upper hand. It's a very grown-up phero. I love it.

I ordered one of the smaller bottles of LFM in oil from ArtFire to try it out unscented. Whee!

 

So, NuTrix and Molls, does layering with an alcohol-based scent help the diffusion at all?

Yup! Agreed! I had used LP Pink a couple times but Pure Sugar has become my staple :)

I've had good fortune layering the perfume oils down first and then the un spray over them. Until I started scenting my un sprays, that was how I always wore them. The way the sprays lifted the perfume up and out I imagine it would work in reverse with the perfume spray lifting the pheromones in the oil up and out too :)

Excellent. I'll experiment with alcohol-based scent on top of UN oil and report back if there are any findings.

I finally ordered a bottle of PS. I have a few Un pheros in spray. I'm sure I will scent a few with this. I figure it could help soften my spray bottle of Un Bang x2. lol what was I thinking back then.

Short version: LFM made the mean girl at choir nice to me... really conversant and nice. I got invited to brunch by the inner clique from choir. ACD, who has ignored me outside of rehearsal and not had much to say to me in them talked to me at brunch/on the walk back.

Jeezum Crow, can I drink this stuff so it oozes from my pores? :dr.jekyll-mr.hyde:

Lol! Nice hits but don't drink the LFM. Some of it is going to soak into your bloodstream anyway. LFM is great. My first phero and still one of my Favs.

I absolutely love La Femme, funny thing though- in addition to being a definitely beautifying phero, and a kick ass shopping phero, it also make me dress better and clean up more . Its almost like it convinces me to leave myself and my surroundings in the best possible state.

Me too ephoebe! I decided on LFM because I want/need something that can be used for social situations for now. When it comes to the sexy stuff, I have Sexpionage, and if that one can't do it, nothing can! ;)

Rose, I'm still waiting for my LP Red boosted with Sexpionage, I can't wait for that one to arrive!

 

Did you get LFM in spray or oil? Did you add any cops to it like others here have?

I got mine in the 60/40 alcohol oil spray without cops. I guess I figured if I were going to go with cops, I would have gone with LFN. I hope you love your LPRed with Sexpionage. My Sexpionage is unscented so that when I feel wicked ;) I can simply pick any perfume of my choice. For me, most cover it just fine. It does have some cops smell of course, but to my nose nothing like the straight stuff due to the other pheroes in it.

once upon a time there was a tyvey. Last night she wore LFM to a network thing and accomplished frustratingly little because of the stranger men following her around like lost puppies and standing and leaning much closer to her than is socially correct. Tonight she wore LFM and talked her friends' faces clean off, which had never happened before. This was a new one, for LFM anyway. Maybe because she had slept only a few hours last night. The end.

Do you remember how much you used? I try to write down how much I'm wearing. that way I can increase, decrease or use the same amount again.

IME, this one is truly the less is more blend.

I've had some really big hits with this, and many smaller, subtitle hits. But sometimes nothing I've noticed, except I was "feelin good". Like that Nina Simone song :)

Argh, no, of course not. I am so derpy. I was sure I'd remember but pride goeth, etc. Now I'm convinced of the value of keeping a log of application amounts, cover, etc.

 

I wore one drop today to see how it went but did get any obvious hits. I'll try one drop again a few more times in different situations before going to two drops... and I'll keep a record!

ok well I wear more than 2 drops ;)

 

Let's see today I wore Goddess of the Blue Moon a LFM boosted scent so it's only 333m of the phero. So about 6 swipes.

I have a spray that's 2x so I can use less, One or two sprays does it for me.

The Un oil is about 3 2 inch swipes.

I've been trying to figure out why I have a weird sort of relationship with this one, when it works so well for others. At first it was over-use, then I realised as StacyK said that less is definitely more. In some ways I love the results, in other ways it continues to puzzle me.

 

Now I know what it is- this one definitely lends an air of feminine mystery, quiet grace, natural beauty and a husky whisper of subtle sexiness. BUT- it is an intense and serious blend. At least for me it is. Even at low doses in La Sylphide (which is BRILLIANT), it does not feel light on me. It's a sexy social blend, but somehow it's got a darker, deeper, more unfathomable personality than all the others. And I am by nature intense, serious, introverted, dark, thoughtful and secretive. So this intensifies my natural personality signature to the point of it being easily too much. I feel sensuous and elegant when wearing it, but often seem unapproachable or aloof. People seem fascinated, but not encouraged to socialise. I may have to experiment with naughtily adding a little Lace or something when wearing it. I wouldn't usually think about doing this with a complex blend like LFM, but it makes me a creature of the shadows, and I need to add some rays of light.

 

Has anyone else ever felt this way?

Oh yeah. I have a tough time with LFM too. People seem intimidated, fascinated, whatever... they GAWK at me when I wear it. But they rarely talk to me. And if I wear it around people I know, they spend an inordinate amount of time musing aloud about my appearance, and it's tough to get them off the subject. I don't wear it often because of this. I'm one of those people who's body forgets how to move when it knows it's being watched, and the admiration factor that I get from LFM is just a little bit too much for me sometimes.

 

I get the "too-serious" feeling about it as well, and I always wish I had a bottle of straight a-nol, so I could lighten it up a bit. I'm not one for mixing my pheros much, but I've also thought that maybe a dab of Lace might help the sociability aspect. 'Cause while it's nice to be admired, it would be nicer to talk about something else after a while! :lol:

Hahaha! Yes! You both pegged it!

 

It's not as "light" as others.

 

On me it vibes authority/femininity and get the same complimentary behavior on appearance as Eggers :D

 

I love it for work. My usual M.O. is to wear LFM on my person and then a couple sprays of Topper to my clothes or hair. I have tried it with CB and Lace (separately, lol) CB for when I'm with hubby and Lace is great socially too, very girly and fem vibe :) But LFM is one blend that I do really love all on it's own too. I'm just not usually congruent with the serious/quiet elegance part of the vibe, so I feel I have to lighten it to make it "right" with me most times I wear it...

Right, I'm trying two drops (and some OCCO Blue) today for a work meeting. I just hope I haven't over-done it. I haven't noticed any sure selfies per se but I wore some on Friday and was really snappy and irascible. I think this was unrelated; I've never had that happen before with LFM, but I'm slightly leery of getting grumpy at work. Has anyone else found LFM makes them cranky?

 

 

I'll pop back later to share the results.

I think I've found it can intensify any mood I'm already in, so while I haven't found it makes me cranky I have become so intensely quiet and inwardly focused that it has freaked other people out, and may have seemed grumpy to others.

 

I definitely get the fascinated gawking thing Eggers & Nutrix talked about (though with none of Nutrix's authority vibe). And yeah, Eggers is right- it gets uncomfortable the way people will gawk at you sometimes, like you're a fascinating object more than a person.

 

When I wear LFM, sometimes I feel like I've transformed into a beautiful, elegant white swan, and I'm floating gracefully through the world as it goes on around me.

 

But it's like people are gathering round, pointing and exclaiming, "Look at that swan over there! What is it doing here, floating around on the carpet? Maybe we should catch it and release it back into the wild..."
