I tested this out yesterday and immediately got a milky creamy yummy sweet delicious aroma.
My skin has been freaking out a bit lately, so I was excited that this was sweet and foody.
As it was drying down it got a bit weird, must have been the flavors melding in, then it turned into this nice tang. Almost like Kanary Kreme but a tiny bit sweeter. It really did remind me of Kanary Kreme.
I'll have to retest in a week to see how it develops further and if any of the other notes come out, but so far I love the creaminess of it and the milky start.

I've got this one coming in a sample. I could not wear Kanary Kreme, so I hope this one doesn't amp too sweet on me. If so, maybe it will make a good layering scent for beyond the veil or my Majmua.....

I LOVE this one. I slathered my pillow with it on Friday, good for having nice creamy dreams. ;P I hoarded a couple of bottles for myself....the unusual spice combo over the creamy-ness is what does it for me.

I had really high hopes for this one. Sometimes when there are ingredients I love (vanilla, buttercream) i just try to ignore the ones that I am not crazy about (maple, caramel). Sometimes this works, okay not often but I always wish for the best. Sooo, in the vial all I get is maple and vanilla. Right after I put it on I smell the most amazing rich buttery vanilla buttercream and a touch of coconut. Alas after 5 minutes the caramel and maple really start amping and that's what i am left with. Creamy mapley caramel. This will be a huge success because so many of you love those notes. But not me :(

I hope I amp the maple and NOT the vanilla. I love vanilla, but the two scent I have with vanilla in them turn plasticky on me. Sorry this didn't work out for you Halo. I wish we could borrow each other's chemistry,

Actually after a couple of hours the maple dies down a lot and after 4 or 5 hours the creamy remnants are AMAZING.

This is my favorite that I've smelled so far. At the beginning, it reminds me of the pirate and the maiden, but without the coconut. After it dries, it smells like creamy vanilla.

I think the cardamom helps the dairy notes from going sour on me; I like it better in the vial...mmm deliciously buttery vanilla-maple-caramel! But it stays creamy and rich even though the spice is amped on my skin. I could see wearing this in fall/winter.

Ravenwing, I didn't find it overly sweet, or very spicy. It's just a smidgen of each, with coconut and cream and vanilla. Just enough sugar and spice to make the other scents POP. You know, like a dusting of nutmeg on your cappucino.

Katz, I was told I smelled like candy! This is like the thickest richest downright fattiest creme brulee with eleventythousand types of vanilla-infused cream given some stickiness by the maple, which reminded me of those Russel Stover maple creams that I love so much sans the chocolate, an exotic flourish with coconut and a pinch of cardamom. The cardamom doesn't amp to hell on me, just gives it a bit of warmth and kick. This is rich and smooth and fabulous. Reminds me a bit of Captivation Equation, actually.

In the vial, the fattiness in this came off to me similarly to fleur cremeuse. But totally different wet/on. For a moment I too thought "captivation equation!" it's settling down into a garland and lace-ish thick noggy goodness.

Creamy, vanilla-ish, sweet and fluffy, with a slight tang of lemon and cardamom. I was hoping for more of a creme brulee type scent, but this is more of a... panna cotta scent. Creamy, smooth, lucious and refreshing rather than cloying. I'm thinking that it's the faint fluff of coconut that does it. It's sweet, and definately a dessert-type scent, but it's not a hugely sugary scent. The maple plays nicey and doesn't over-power the more delicate notes. It's a cooler, more sophisticated scent than Dolce Far Niente, which is a warm, snuggly, casual kind of perfume to me. Lick of Cream is more of a lady-like scent than a cuddling by the fire scent. I like it a whole lot!

Interesting: today's heavy slather feels like a lemonless kanary kreme. My nose is double-taking!

This doesn't smell like Kanary Kreme to me but it smells creamy and....like chocolate? Can that be right? and I smell a bit of earth or dirt. (goes to check ingredients)

 

 

VANILLA ~ Aphrodisiac, inspires happiness, playfulness, sexual arousal, lust, vitalizing.

BUTTER/CREAM ~ Nurturing, soothing, eases troubled relationships. Goddess energy.

MERINGUE/EGG ~ A representation of the world or the womb. Fertility, nourishment, cycle of life, feminine energy.

CARDAMOM ~ Lust, love.

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

MAPLE ~ Love attraction, longevity; money attractant.

COCONUT ~ Protection, purification, receptivity.

 

Okay, maybe it's the egg? I think the cardamom is amping to my nose too. Me and cardamom don't get along. I hope when I wear it for awhile all the other lovely ingredients amp out the cardamom ad the dirt smell. I like these labels, They are glossier and seem sturdier, more resistant to spills,

I just have to update that this one has grown on me so much! Even the maple and caramelized aspects are okay with me. This is a breakthrough.

And I am happy to report that I put this on my actual skin morning and it's lovely!

 

After a half hour: Now the buttercream is singing on my arm with maple and coconut singing back up.

The more I wear this the more I love it. This is so creamy and delicious, it does remind me of Dolce. It smells so damn good!

This lasted moderately long on me today. But I like it, Shoot, the cardamom just doesn't like me though, Cardamom goes sour on me for some reason. But by no means have I ruled this out.

I have to watch it with this one - I'm gonna go through it like a bush-hog through green brush...

today I get no cardamom but also not much staying power, I have to slather this one to be able to smell it, but I like it. More cake than spice which is good, because I am starting to become one dimensional in my quest for THE perfect spice scent. (I mean, LP Red is hard to top)

 

I have to keep up with wearing this though to make sure the cardamom doesn't haunt me.

I love this one and since my skin has been all crazy this disappears so fast. I wore it to bed last week and I smelled soooo good.

I totally want a full bottle and it's on my full bottle purchase list.
