Glitter Kissed

Recommended Posts

I'm not sold on this one just yet. I'd hoped I'd love it, but I don't. Or maybe it just doesn't love me. In the vial it smelled pretty and sweet, and I thought, "Oh yeah!". But when I applied it, all the sweetness disappeared and all I was left with was a sour dried ginger smell. I'm going to put it away, 'cause my perception of it might be a little skewed. (I noticed over the last couple of days that a few of my perfumes smelled "off", so I'm going to assume this is cycle-related)). I'll try it again in a week or so, and see how we fare. I want the hazelnut, dammit! :)

Oh yeah it's the cycle. My foodies always smell disgusting around that time. I cannot stand to wear them. Give it a few days.

My LP Pink & LP Spring '11 smelled "dusty" when usually they smell freaking delicious, so I'm guessing the cycle. I'll try again soon! :D

OH MY GOD.

 

So I took a while to test this out because sniffed in the trial vial, this was all sugar to me... and I don't like overly sweet perfumes.

 

But OMG ON MY SKIN IT'S NOT. It's all yummy spices and wow. It just needs a bit of pumpkin and I'd smell like the most wonderful (NOT too sweet) pumpkin spiced latte. OMG. Just... SO DELICIOUS.

 

Damnit, another fb to go on my "to buy" list which is long enough.

 

This is Garland and Lace with WAY more spice. LOVE IT. (must be the gingerbread and spices)

This smells foody and a bit chocolate-y to my nose. I like the gingerbread, but I'm scared of the hazelnut. The glitter is pretty though.

I just got this as a sample and its really great. I love how the spices amp on me over time and then then scent sticks around for a very long time. I boosted my sample with BBM and it was great

I know what you mean NuTrix. I think glitter in perfumes just makes them feel so... well... special. Even if I can't see it on my skin I just love taking out bottles or samples and shaking the glitter around in them. Snow Musk is my favourite for this, it just looks so swirly and pretty when I shake it. Is it maybe because this one has actual mica instead of just glitter? (Or are glitter and mica the same thing? :lol:)

I think a lot (or all?) of the time Mara uses glitter it's mica.

Love the mica in the sniffee vial. However, the spices do not agree with my nose.

I tried this sniffie ( a few months ago) without knowing the exact notes. I knew it was a holiday scent so the general spice accord was a no brainer. But I really loved this scent compared to some of the others with similar spice notes. The marshmallow root is just a devine sensual addition.. I love marshmallow root, another one of my scent realizations here with LP.

This scent is family friendly and perfect for a little holiday striptease with the S. O. :)

This is not a strictly holiday scent for me because I like gingery treats year round. The spices are even a bit more intense now from aging. Wet they are so hot and dry I almost wondered what I was thinking, but then they dry and the marshmallow comes out and softens everything so nicely. I discovered my BF doesn't like gingery smells at all so I will wear this just for me. But that's what i usually do anyway so no biggie. I have a feeling I will be wearing this alot in the Autumn months ahead.

Finally tried a sample of this that I got in a trade, and OMG...yet another to go on the fb wish list! I can't say enough good things about this lp! It smells amazing - the gingerbread really sticks out, but to me it doesn't seem too "Christmas-y" and I'd wear it probably all autumn and winter. One of the problems I have alot is scents not staying too long on my skin, but I definitely got a full day out of Glitter Kissed. A couple of my other fbs are jumping out of the cart to make way for this one, especially now that I read in this thread that it's almost gone. I can't miss out on this one, it's just too beautiful.

YUM! Wearing this today and it is just ginger bread scrumptiousness! That yummy cookie blast at application makes my eyes roll back into my head. I LOVE the label too! Mostly just huffing myself now though....maybe I should go get some BMM and layer it to complete that craving for dunking ginger snaps in milk that this has created....

^^^ :lol: I would tell you I'm sorry except that...I'm NOT, Muhahaaaa!!!!

...and I'm sure you'll love it if you like sugary, cinnamon ginger snap/bread type flavors and scents. :)

Plus it has the word glitter in it, and I am like a bird that collects shiny objects. Especially when I'm into the DHEAS.

So on first putting this on, I was a little overwhelmed by how sweet it was. And I thought it had cinnamon in it, before I looked at the notes. But obviously what I was smelling was ginger (which is more pleasing to my nose). After not too long, it settled down and I just smelled like a gingersnap cookie all day. It wasn't very strong. Nice if you're into smelling like cookies. I am not--I have just barely accepted that sometimes I like to smell like cake :P --so this isn't really a scent for me.
