I tested this one today...and I have mixed feelings. Wet it is just WAY too floral for me. I smell almost straight rose, and I really don't like florals too much. But then, like everyone else says, after it's dried down and a few hours in it just becomes beautiful. Right now it smells gorgeous! But I just don't think I can wait out the rose. So, sadly, (or maybe not TOO sadly, since I've been spending ALOT of money on lps lately!) I think I may just enjoy my sample until it's gone, and not go fb on this one.

The rose in this one is very strong to start. I will wait and see how the dry down goes. I was wondering for those of you who have tried it in a spray, does the scent seem to mellow a bit faster than as an oil? I have read that oils have the staying power but as far as the changing scent from the in your face rose to the smooth elegant rose.....is it quicker in a spray form?

 

ETA: I will add that even though the rose is a very upfront note, it is a nice crisp young rose. Sometimes rose can smell like urine on me and this one is holding the floral scent....I love the smell of rose gardens in the summer so I am hoping this quiets down for me.

This is going to be a FB for me! At first when I smelled it in the vial, it was all shocking lime and a tad bit of rose. I wore it the day before yesterday and fell in love with it. I put it on before work to let it dry down sufficiently and after about 15 minutes it mellowed out to a refreshing, summery, clear, awesome scent! It blends together so well. This will be a perfect summer scent when the heat is getting to you or you don't want to wear a scent that is too thick. It is complex and multi-faceted but won't overwhelm the senses. I now want to try this drink it was created after, it seems like it would be absolutely delicious. It would also be good for those days where winter never seems to end. I like to do this sometimes to remind myself that the cold will eventually let up and spring will be coming right around the corner. You need an instant flash of summer? Put some of this on!

This one is a nice scent but it takes so long to get there on me ( 3-4-hours). I will enjoy what I have but probably won't be ordering more of it. There are so many other things to try so I don't feel that bad about it.

OK! The good news is the Cougar is not making me feel weird and "off" like it has in every other scent I have tried it in. I am actually feeling awesome and upbeat! This is such an enthusiastic scent! I do like it and it is so perfect for today. It is sunny and clear and the air is so fresh, I can't imagine wearing any other scent today. It does remind me somewhat of Passion in Pink but not quite as sickly sweet so I like it better for me. I am not sure about getting a full bottle yet. It has the potential of wearing me out. It just might be tooooo much. I will definitely wear my sample and see if I am sick of it by the time it's gone.

I held off on testing this one because it didn't sound like a "me" scent... I tried it yesterday for a retail day, though, and wow, it was really effective! The scent is quite citrus-y on me, with the floral very calm in the background. It had a bit of a perfume-y vibe to it, but more in a "complex blend where the notes are so intertwined it's hard to pick out any one as dominant" not in smelling like a commercial perfume. The scent was subtle and sophisticated... not quite me, but perfectly congruent with the phero! Cougar Potion didn't work for me as a scent, but the phero is great and this was a wonderful scent setting for it! I felt sparkly and confident; had some lovely hits with younger male customers (and a couple of older as well!). Definitely a social rather than a sexual vibe, which I like for that setting. I could see this working beautifully for any social setting that has professional overtones to it -- it's feminine and grown-up and deeply attractive without putting out too much on the sexual side of things. I'm actually contemplating a full bottle, which I didn't expect to be! I think I would use it in the same way that I use Sneaky Clean--they are quite different in many ways, but both have an element of classiness to them (but still playful and fun) that is supremely useful.

Nice review Blackcat!! I felt the same about Pizzazz when I first tried it. I worried about the rose amping because florals (rose especially) usually goes all dominatrix on other notes but I loved how it wasn't overwhelming. In my head, I've always linked Cougar phero with scented Cougar but this one definitely fits into the category perfectly for that upbeat, playful vibe I associated. It's definitely my scented Cougar alternative!!

In support of Pizzazz usage, I decided to wear this today. So far, everyone has been pleasant and although putting the stereo in my car has been nothing but a pain in the ass (it's a Mitsubishi so of course everything is wonky to install), the installer has bent over backwards answering questions, offering solutions, gift cards for the trouble, you name it.

 

I put this one around 9:30 and right now, it feels like a soft vanilla-laden rose with a splash of citrus. I'm with you Halo. It's morphed all over the place the last couple of hours. I never get any brown sugar though? Has anyone noticed having that stick out to them? Its not prominent like in other scents. I assume that's probably why I get a faint vanilla feel from this now though.

This really reminds me of a snack I love eating In the summer Called Jubes (or as I just call it Jube jubes because it sounds better)

 

It sorta reminds me of the original or mango. It certainly reminds me of them at fist smell out of the bottle, once on that initial Jubes twang is still there but now its just an underlying scent w.a dusty rose aura. It screamed 'yum' until the rose came out and now I'm not sure what to think of it.

 

I think the roses don't like me cuz it felt like someone decided to jab me in the eye with an ice pick and is still hammering it in, its still really early so maybe it'll mellow out, if it doesn't then ill be sad to wash it off

There is nothing about this scent that gets on my nerves now. From first sniff to complete dry down it is just magnificent!

I love Pizzazz! Wet, it is just such a juicy, fresh happy fragrance, I can't help but smile, even when doing the most boring domestic crap today! And of course, the Cougar is making me feel like the shizz, even when folding laundry and mopping the floors. And I'm also a fan of the long dry down, this has the feeling of texture, like a soft suede. Not that it smells like suede, lol, but it makes me think of something soft and almost velvety. Love it!

I was hesitant to get is because of the rose. My grandmotherly kindergarten teacher eons ago wore a very strong pure rose perfume and while it is lovely, I equate it with old lady.

 

But I got this and was so pleasantly surprised. It was sweet and tart against a floral background. Not too overtly flowery though as it mixes with the sweet/tart very nicely.

 

In fact, it reminds me of a drink. My mother makes her own version of a hot toddy and would give it to us when we had sore throats and heavy chest congestion. It was hot tea with orange juice, honey, lemon or lime juice (depending what she had on hand) and a capful of brandy. The scent of Pizzaz reminds me very much of this tea. It is lovely!

The idea for Pizzazz was based upon a picture of a drink I found and posted as part of LP's Question of the Day that I do on Facebook. But it was a rose mojito.

The first time I wore Pizzazz, I thought, "Hmmm...*squidgy shrug*...maybe not for me." But I couldn't just let it sit there and be sad. I mean, it has COUGAR in it!!! I let it age a little and tried again.

 

YOWZA!!! I love it now! It's not too sharp like it was at first. Everything blends, and it smells so. Freakin'. GOOD! Cougar is always a great phero for me, so that's a given. But the scent! It's really lovely now! It's congruent with the phero. It's a happy scent. Stuff's excellent. I'm gonna end up with a full bottle!

Wow this is aging so beautifully! I finally cracked open my bottle three days ago and I have been wearing it nonstop ever since. I have been applying it 5-6 times a day. I love it wet, so tart and bright. I love it dry, so sweet and full and more rosy. I love it best after long drydown. It's incredible. Just so sweet and incredible and yummy. I didn't even like rose perfume until a few months ago. Now there are three that I like. This, Agent XXX and Raspberry Rose Confite. I think I like it best with fruit. This has probably even moved into my top five!! I cannot overstate how much I love this. I am glad it's not super popular because that means more for me and It will be around for a long time.

I love Cougar and the self-effects were there when I wore Pizzazz -- and I do wear it for the selfies! But ack on the scent -- at first it is bright and sparkly, but then it dries down into old-lady-rose on me. And it doesn't fade!! it sticks around forever!! So -- it's kind of a joke to play on myself: wear a scent I can't stand which is enhanced with a phero that makes me feel AWESOME! lol!

I'll try it again in a few weeks to see if it morphs into something marvelous, but for now, this is a no go. :(

I love how Pizzazz and the Raspberry Rose Confite smell in the bottle, but they both go wonky on my skin. Rose/raspberry blends just don't like me, even though I like THEM. Phooey. Not fair. :smiley-angry016:

It makes no sense how much I love this one. The roses don't usually sit well with me. That Confite one was a total bust. Agent XXX was better but still not FB worthy for me. But Pizzazz!! So drippingly refreshing! Every time I wear it it smells a little different. Sometimes the lime pops out...sometimes the mint! I think it smells exactly like this drink must taste which I plan on making one of these days.

 

Thank you Halo for inspiring a scent with Cougar that I finally love!

That amazes me...such a happy scent. I will be wearing the hell out of it when I go to Hawaii next month! This and Dolly's Hot and Sticky of course. My friend that I will be visiting there LOVED the concept of the rose mojito. He couldn't believe there was such a perfume! Ahhhh these non LP'ers...they have such a tough time smelling outside the box...

with aging this has gotten less pointy, even at the beginning (though it didn't bother me when it was) and MUCH SWEETER and more overtly foody. It reminds me early on, and even more in late drydown, of Pink Musk. :dancing kitteh:

I will be taking this one to Florida with me at the end of the month. It is aging so well. I love it wet when the rose is bright and sliughtly loud. Mixed with the lime it is so cheery. But my favorite time is after about an hour when it's so soft but you can smell the passionfruit perfectly. It's heavenly to me. Perfect for Summer.

I get a lot of lime from Pizzazz. I love the summer-tropical feel / smell of this blend! The notes work amazingly well together. Total mojito...great cover for Cougar! The fact that it ages well is thrilling altho I can't see mine lasting more than a year. So it won't have a chance to age too long.

When I tried this one for the first time, I didn't like, don't know why. But after a week, I tried it again, and loved it. The moment I put it on it's sweet and sugary, but later it's fruity and flowery at the same time :)

I love this scent! I didn't think I was a rose fan before finding LP's but Mara has converted me, I love Pizzazz for it's fruity and floral scent, it's the perfect summer cocktail. It makes me feel 'sparkly' which makes it the perfect vehicle for 'cougar'. On me it's more fruity soda, with a back note of rose. Definitely a must have for any fruit or rose fan. Has a great throw and last a long time.

This is very rose at the start. I had a moment where I thought it was going to be too much but it never got to that point. It wears really well, stayed strong. I can still smell it hours later. On dry down I got more of the rose and the lime together. I think the berries sweeten the rose in a nice way, making it more youthful and less sharp, especially after the long dry down. I have a feeling I will still be able to smell this faintly in the morning.
