This is a poetic fragrance. I know I won't do it justice in reviewing it, but here's my attempt:

 

It's vaguely aquatic, but not in the usual way. On me this is not a "blue" aquatic-type scent. You know how you can see swirls of mingling colours in oil on water? It's like that- green and blue and purple all at once. Imagine a beautiful woodland fairy creature wandering through forest paths and coming to rest under a shady tree beside a quietly babbling brook, lying down amongst a tangle of shy purple flowers. That's what this feels like to me. It's shady and gentle and mysterious, ethereal yet substantial, with a calm, quiet feel accompanied by a softly intriguing presence. On my skin there is a hint of something vaguely approaching a floral presence, but never quite getting there- it just sits in the background providing a soft hint of sweetness. I think this might actually be the berry, as there is no discernible "berry-ness" to this fragrance on me. There's a feeling of lush greenness to it, but not in a really green-scented way (if that makes any sense). And the presence of water is conveyed within the fragrance without ever becoming a predominant force.

 

This is an extremely well balanced scent. My rambling hasn't described it very well, but basically it manages to evoke the feeling of a magical natural setting. I can't compare it to any other scents I tried before. And I think I'm going to get this in a spray too, because this is a scent I'd like to have quietly wafting from my clothes, which would also suit the phero.

Thanks! This fragrance really has surprised me with the degree of its complexity (at least on my skin). It really does seem to go far beyond the "watery berry" that it's described as. I wasn't sure what I'd think about it when I read the description, and was worried it might be too unisex for me, but it's not at all. It's my favourite scent of the 4 I've tried so far.

I'm going to be really sad that I didn't get a bottle before Christmas, aren't I? LOL!

Now I'm crossing my fingers that my package arrives before the 25th so I can scoop one of these puppies up!

When I select Riversong, the Sorcerer v2 is added in my cart? Anyone else have that issue? I will try again later to see if it is just something on my end or something that needs to be fixed.

I had the same problem when adding Riversong to my cart. Could be the shop programming glitch. Did not want to order it yet anyway though, so forgot about the whole thing until you mentioned it.

vladmyra, what a great review!

I flat-out love this one. My favorite of the month. Usually, I have a difficult time finding something fresh that doesn't end up too "blue" or too "green". This somehow ends up being both and yet neither, so hard to describe. I love the blackberry in this, not too tart or syrupy, just right, hovering delicately in the background. A clean, comforting scent, and with Open Windows? Sold! I'm gonna be wearing this one a lot.

Thanks Calii & SpriteLeigh!

This really is a truly inspiring scent. I tested it again last night, and I'm definitely going to need it in a spray as well.

I know exactly what you mean about scents being too blue or green SpriteLeigh. I think this is the first watery one I've found that cannot be accurately defined as just one thing. Which makes it truly magickal.

Can't write a good review, my Aunt Francis!!

Give yourself a round of applause Vladmyra! That was a WONDERFUL review.

This one and the "clean" one (X something), are the two I really wanna get my hands on. I'm more in for the magic and fragrance over the pheros these days. I lovvvve nature scents, and Vladmyras outstanding review really put this one at the top of my wishlist!!

I can't really say anything more about River Song, because Vladmyra's already said it perfectly. But I wanted to pop in here to say that I really love this. It's gorgeous and very, very happy.

 

I wore it to work tonight, and the first words out of my boss's wife's mouth were, "Eggers, what are you wearing today?". And then she proceeded to tell me how much she loves my perfumes! :D She said they always seem to register as clean laundry, and then after a while she realizes that it's me that smells so good. She also said they make her feel super-mellow & happy. :D Good thing I got her a bottle of one of her favourite LPs for Christmas! LOL!

I really want to like this, but something has gone awry on my skin. I suspect the blackberry because we've had issues before, but it could be the maile vine since I'm not really sure what that smells like. But around that curious scent was a very fresh, watery scent, lightly green. (The vine perhaps...?) I think it smells unisex.

This is lovely (yay John-John), it reminds me a bit of Feral because it's - for me - a perfect mix of fruit and other elements; in this case the watery greens. Usually that type of note is just too much with my chemistry, but the fruit keeps everything else in check and it's really fresh and sweet, it's akin to that kind of sweetness aquatic notes can have naturally (in the way ATO Aquamarine is constructed, for example). The only drawback is that the amber becomes a bit sharp with wear on me, but that happens sometimes with "pale" amber/musks..

Oh I'm so glad people like my review of this, because I am so in love with this perfume! Wore it to work a couple of days ago and a woman who has never commented on any scent told me I smelled really lovely. And people seemed very happy and at ease around me all day. By the end of the day I couldn't smell the perfume, but the weird thing was that at this point, when I thought it had worn off, men were showing more interest in me than they had been earlier in the day- constantly glancing and smiling at me everywhere I went. I had no other pheros on, so it had to be the open windows in River Song.

I have to run so for now I'll leave a quick message here just to say that I agree with Vladmyra's review too and River Song is definitely my fave of the month. It's fresh and sweet and lighthearted straight from the vial.

OK, first up - LOVE OW. This is one of my Uns that I am just tearing through and hope LP carries forever... that being said...

 

River Song is very clean and fresh and floral to me, but I think what I'm registering as floral is the amber? I had discovered before that I love bamboo in a fragrance (like NYMPH! and Mermaids of Atlantis) There's something sweet but it's just barely there - the berries? I LIKE blackberry quite a bit too but this isn't a sweet scent to me. I'm afraid that I quite slathered it on today, and I think it's a bit much out of the gate, lol, but I'm home today, with the exception of a dentist appointment, so I'm not washing ANY of it off :lol:

I will agree with the great reviews on this thread. Very nice light wet scent more a like dew wet not heavy rain or lake wet. I was hoping it would be a light scent that would remind me of a dewy night just as the sun goes down or just before dawn....the air just seems light then but still moist. I was really looking for one like this.

I was very new to LP (and quite overwhelmed) when River Song was recommended to me for use in the workplace, no doubt due to Open Windows. I purchased OW separately but something about the notes listed here just intrigued me. I had a "wish list" of LPs that I had read in the Perfumerie (at this point I had not mastered use of the Forums and Reviews so I was going off my gut on what sounded good) and RS was indeed on it.

 

I barely snagged a bottle - it disappeared hours after I had decided to buy it! Thankfully Mara pulled one for me before it got to AF (at that point I wasn't totally clear on the AF routine for scents). It is beautiful, fresh and green - perfect for Open Windows and definitely could be unisex. I love the way it lifts my spirits to put it on - and then lifts the spirits of those around me as I go about my day. It's as though I have this ethereal mist that envelopes me...it's amazing to see it and OW in action. People seem to want to step into my **aura** or something! It's refreshing, cooling but there's something mysterious there too - something succulent, sweet and wet really amps on my skin. Surely that must be the "hint of berry".

 

I could definitely see this in a Wax Melt... and along with it I'd be playing any number of choices on my "nature sounds" gizmo. Brook, River, Waterfall, Forest. The effect would be better than any SPA setting you could dream of.

It is a very calming, relaxing scent... but not in a sleepy sense. If I had to use one word to describe River Song, I would have to say ~ Soulful.

It is such a great scent isn't it? I always get compliments on this one. It's one of those scents that really seems to not only suit but enhance the phero it is paired with. Truly magical.

I am soooo sorry that I missed this one, LoveStruck55. I'm kicking myself for waiting just a little too long to place my order... Sniff, sniff :-( . It sounds just like a beautiful song from your description (great review, btw). With any luck (holding my breath) I may find a bottle on the trade thread...

Alright so ive been playing around w.this one and i wasnt on the bandwagon w.OW...(for the record im 10000000% in love w.it now!)

 

Ive tried it a couple times in oil form and i didnt really get much hits to write home about, i usually wear it around my new step mom since shes always angry when im around. HOWEVER i wore it out n away from her and aw yesss its the best ever, it smells akin to that watermelon hand soap and damn do i feel good, like fat cat that got cream of the crop good :D

 

I converted it into a tiny spray for obvious reasons, it diluted the scent considerably and warped it to a degree, while it still smells the same in the spray bottle its a different story when its in the air. It turns all powdery n sharp when its misted but i mixed a drop of candy scent in there to balance it out n its fine now :B I really wish i gotten a fb but shit happens

 

I love wearing this to parties since they get personal and i was hoping ow would keep it positive n friendly. Which it really does to an extent mind you but when its coupled w.lfm or b-nol people really want to get in your pants...not that im complaining ;D

When worn alone, people of the male variety confide in me a lot more than usual and i practically become a wing-ma'am, while w.the chicks they want my opinion about everything--EVERYTHING--if i had worn this at random i wouldve sworn it were pop potion.

GREAT review Anon2F!!! I have RS in oil as well - and I also have some of Mara's little sprays so I'm going to convert it as you did and give it a try. RS just recently went on the GGG site. It was not long after I joined LP and I was so happy to snag one because I think it is a great all-around scent. You never know... it may show up for one last hurrah on AF so you may get the chance again for a FB. Or I'll watch the trades for ya... I'm going to want another one anyway. BTW, I love the the "wing-ma'am" term :thumbup:

Just managed to snag a sniffee of this one from LadyV (my favorite of the bunch), and I'm so glad that I did! I didn't think I would like it when it first saw it, but then I read Vlad's poetic description. It is *exactly* as she describes. in the vial it's very purple and green with a watery feeling to it. This would be absolutely divine in a spray, as it is very light and perfectly congruent with OW. I'm very tempted to take the vial I have and make a small spray out of it, but I know I'd go through it very quickly. So, I'm hoarding those precious drops till I can try to find some more...

Love, love, love this and am going through my sample alarmingly quickly. Tart berries and cool spring water; not too sweet or aquatic, which are things I tend to avoid. And Open Windows is amazing! Conversation just flows naturally with this phero for me, and yesterday after applying a bit more to perk myself up my coworkers seemed to all gather around with me where we proceeded to laugh and joke around even more than normal :) I love this and also hope to someday snag a full bottle on the trade pages.

It is really great, isn't it? I ordered it for the phero and I wouldn't have thought I was a berry perfume person but this is perfectly balanced and easy to love. The berries plus the water lend a light and refreshing juiciness.

I grabbed this one from my sample collection and on a whim thought I'd give it a try. When I first sniffed it I didn't like it at all. It was very cool/watery and made me think of a rainy cool pond.

 

But as I'm finding, my preferences change and this morning the tartness of the berries and pomegranate smell so delicate with the bamboo and amber. I'm wearing it to work too and it's not overpowering, though I didn't slather it on. And I'm enjoying OW, this might be the first OW that I've worn too...so I'm curious how today goes (for me and with my coworkers close by).

I've been test driving this one at my weekly social dancing club for the past two weeks. First of all, I really like the scent and I can't believe I haven't reviewed it before because I know I've worn it. The scent is cool and watery. Refreshing and green with a hint of sweetness from the berries. It's exactly the kind of thing I want to be smelling as my thoughts turn toward the summer.

 

I have this in oil, which works well in the context of social dancing because the club gets really hot so the projection is great. I've also tried a few other pheros in this context, namely LFM and Cougar. LFM boosted my confidence and even though it was my first time at the club I was asked to dance a number of times. Cougar boosted my confidence even further but I did get a bit of unwanted attention. The OW was a nice change. It was a real mood elevator for me and I found myself standing around and talking to people as often as I was dancing. However, I did notice that I was a bit less likely to ask someone to dance with the OW on than otherwise. I think people, especially women, were more relaxed and friendly around me with the OW.

Wore this to work today, and was met with rave reviews from the chef! LOL! He said, "Eggers, I really hope you don't take this in the wrong way, but you smell rully, rully, rully good." :lol:

And really, this was particularly good today. Must have been the humid weather making it diffuse differently? I don't know. I still smell awesome.
