Love Potion: Original

Recommended Posts

I can't believe why and how can my LP O samples keep breaking on me. The sample label held my first vial together for months with minimal leak till i decided to take a closer look at the vial and it fell apart. My second sample was on my bedroom floor, snapped at the neck. It probably dropped out of my pocket during the night. Ass luck, perhaps?

Ack, hope you can replace that quickly - that sucks!

 

LP O rocks, wore it (again) the other day. I had to go to a dr's appt and everyone was over the top nice to me. Then, I went grocery shopping and again - it was like 'friendlyville'. I mean it's not like people are mean at the grocery store, but I mean everyone I spoke with (shoppers and personnel) were warm, friendly. Usually shopping is just well, shopping and kinda boring. I'm liking the vibe of this one the more I wear it. It gives me a kick of self confidence and OMG, smells amazing.

 

I wish I had tried it sooner, (which I've said before) - but so glad I have this - if only 2 samples, now. Love it as all purpose go-to scent.

I've been guarding my fb of LPO for at least 3 years now and I caved in yesterday. Opened my vault and cracked open it.

 

Gosh! It seems so different from the samples which I have had in the past. I guess they may not be as aged as the bottle but it was different to my nose both when wet and after dry down. It seemed to be rounder, sweeter and fruitier but has less throw. With the samples, all I need is a light dab from the wand and it's sufficient to scent me and my bedroom or car while with the fb, I did the lollipop application to achieve the same 'throw'.

 

I read that LPO smells better as it ages. I think I will be reaching out to this more often and I'll soon run out of aged LPO and I'll be quite sad, really.

You're right. Aged LP O is so damn good. I should get another just to age.. To have one after I use up the current aged bottle I have haha. #LPADDICTPROBLEMS

I bought one during the recent sale and I hope it will be sufficiently aged before I finish the current one. I think LP Red is better when aged too and I have a few on standby a couple of years ago. I wonder what about LP Pink as I have backups from the same period.

 

It's kind of ridiculous that I hoarded the permanent ones. Lol!

What can I say about this perfume that hasn't already been said? When wet, I get juicy apricots and some rose. Well, in no time I am weak at the knees when the smooth, rich, boozy vanilla comes out to play. The patchouli adds to the richness and gives depth without being dirty or earthy. Please excuse me while I get lost in this delicious, sensual scent.

No matter how many other scents I fall in love with, I always go back to this for a few days regularly. It's a classic. Glad you tried it IndieAna.

I'm so glad I got it, johnsonlisa. I purchased the sampler for women, so am looking forward to trying the Red, Pink and Black versions, too :)

Oh i love this one! I've had it both in oil and spray. It's such a cozy and familiar scent. I liked it more in spray cause i feel i could smell it more that way. I used to spray it in my hair and the scent had such great throw. Seriously though i could bath in the oil!

 

IndieAna you need try Red too for sure. That's a great one also. It's actually my first love from LPMP, although I don't get to wear it as much as i'd like, that's why I'm trading a bottle. (HINT: try pairing LP Red with OCCO Red, amazing! You'll find lots of reviews about this combo on the forum)

I've tried pink and liked it too. Black wasn't for me.

I got a sample of LP O in my newbie sampler pack. And it was a love at the first sniff (along with LP Pink, but I think I love LP O more). I ordered a FB right away. I don't get that much apricot as others (I would never figure it out on my own if I didn't know it is in there), it is mostly sweet sugary vanilla on me (and I thought I don't like vanilla). It is very well blended scent, it is just so round and cozy. Also I got a compliment from a bar tender who told me I smell like christmas :)

ephoebe, I am looking forward to trying the red and black versions. I love me some spicy and dark perfumes. Thank you for the Occo Red and LP Red suggestion as I'm planning on buying some Occo variations in my next order. Bring on November! :)

Love Potion is really hard for me to describe. Apart from vanilla, I can't discern any of the notes in isolation, and even the vanilla blends in so well it doesn't come across my nose as "this is a vanilla-based scent". At first sniff, I was very surprised at its almost candy-like quality. I love sweet scents, but sometimes they can cross over into sickly sweet, and I was concerned this one might fall into that category.

To my delight, I was wrong. The sweetness remains, but it just blooms into straight up deliciousness on my skin. It has nice throw, yet isn't intrusive at all. I just smell amazing. I can, and sometimes do, slather it on with abandon. The only other scent I slather as much is Sugared Grapefruit (as a diehard resin-wearer for 20+ years, I still can't believe grapefruit, of all things, would end up one of my favorite notes ever--thank you Cougar Potion for the introduction ;) ).

Anyway, I have sampled a number of Love Potion variants and enjoyed many of them. But none holds me under its spell quite like the original. It is beauty, contentment and, yes, love, in one bottle, perfectly blended and balanced. Easily in my Top 5.

I was thinking just today about my top scents, and LP O is number one. Flying potion 2014 number two. I just LOVE LP O. And the more I wear it, the more I can distinct the notes. It is fun :)

I finally got to try this. It's a lovely balance of vanilla, apricot, and rose, although after a while the vanilla went very slightly plastic. Not enough that I won't keep using my sample.

I'm down to the last millilitre or 2 on my full-size bottle, that's about 2 yrs. old. Today LP O is doing something on my skin that hasn't happened before. My skin is amping the apricot & it smells amazing!
