I have very high hopes for this one, sounds delightful.

 

I also have that song "Lotion" by Greenskeepers going through my head: "It puts the lotion on its skin, or else it gets the hose again... do do do..."

I've not been especially pulled by the idea of Pop Potion, and I keep saying I'm not a florals person, and that sugar is not my best note... and yet somehow I am DYING to try this one! It's calling on some deep intuitive level.

If not for the Oakmoss I probably would have skipped by this one but Oakmoss makes everything more interesting to me. Can't wait to see how this works out!

This one sounds fantabulous! I have been wanting a perfume with PP and I missed my chance to get Sweet Chic on Artfire by one day (I kept watching it for weeks and it sold the night before I placed my order so I got a FB of Totem Lamb right away! I can't wait to to know how it smells and also to test out PP my next outing!! :)

A blast of floral first on but quickly dried down to a softly sweet honeysuckle scent. Actually, i adore the honeysuckle in this one! It's a very true note. Grass can be pointy on me but it is very nice in this, sort of a background note. And I think you oak moss lovers (I'm looking at you, Missdarlyncherie!) will love it. It's a very gentle oak moss but it's definitely there. It never smells powdery to me, only earthy, and it totally works in this scent. It smells like a perfect summer day!

When you say earthy is it like dry dirt earthy or is it like moist fresh earth in the morning or is it just a feeling of being one with the earth?

To me, it smells like damp moss. But it's always smelled like that to me, even in New, where others have described it as smelling like powder. Don't be afraid! It's very, very good!!!!

I hope you love it -- sending good thoughts your way that it lives up to expectations. PP is a really great phero! I snapped up a Sweet Chic on Artfire, idk if it was that last bottle...my apologies nonetheless :-D

Yeah don't be scared of this one Victoria. This is actually my favorite of the bunch and you know I don't do earthy.

Oh, this one is lovely! It's a grassy floral; every time I huff my arm I see a field of Queen Anne's Lace and other wildflowers waving in a brisk breeze under a bright blue summer sky. Not sure yet about Pop Potion, but oh wow this is a gorgeous scent.

Yeah, I think this one is my favorite of the new releases. At least it is so far. Each note is soft but present. The floral and green aspects are perfectly balanced with a lacing of sweetness and just a pinch of soft oakmoss. I love oakmoss, but it is faintly there as a background balancer. And the drydown is so sweet and innocent.

 

I haven't had much luck with Popularity Potion before. I am willing to try to figure it out some more though. Maybe it is a good thing that PP is in this blend to prevent me from dousing myself with too much. So far that has always appeared to be my problem with PP. I must be wearing too much when I have tried before because this phero is the only one I have ever routinely ghosted people on. Or maybe they ghost me? Not sure of the order of this, but the end result is I'm a ghost.

Wet this is green grass and a burst of florals. After drydown the sweetgrass comes out, making it similar to Chick. Then there is the honeysuckle. It is soft and sweet. The other florals are soft and supporting. Finally the oakmoss lends a softness and a plushness. This makes me think of lambswool for realz.

This smells like springtime. I get lush green grasses and florals. I can imaging flowers blooming and birds singing. The oakmoss is giving a softness that's really pretty. This is very sweet and innocent smelling. One of the florals is threatening headache territory but so far so good:)

This is pretty much all floral on me; I suppose you could say honeysuckle is the leading note but to my nose this is very well-blended. The softness in the base makes me think a bit of The Wolf and the Shepherdess, but this is more fresh, less sweet. There's a bit of powderyness in the drydown but overall it's light-toned and Spring-y.

Wow, this one sounds right up my alley! I am really looking forward to it's arrival now for the scent alone and the PP will be a special bonus.

Blackcat -- been looking for you for a few days :bye: wasn't sure where I saw this post! Thanks so much for the welcome, haven't been here long compared to most but it feels like home for sure :heart708:. I guess I'm daring (?) because my modus operandi is to buy LPs in full bottles, unsniffed. So sadly, I didn't place an order for this month's delectable sampler set. Come what may, I am definitely getting Totem: Lamb!!!

Daring indeed! I always say my rule is never to buy any full bottle I haven't sampled, unless it's someone else's PE or something that sounds amazing or just because I really really want to... :-) In other words, you'll fit in just fine!

 

I held off on getting a bottle of this in this month's order, which I am already regretting. But there was so much wonderfulness!

Speaking of wonderfulness, congratulations on your hit PE!!! Black Cat Mojo flew off the shelves, happy-happy, joy-joy :D

 

The review thread is terrific! I'm not into dark scents but you had me sold girl -- dawdled too much this morning and missed out on getting a bottle. Was glad to see you got the final two, fittingly so! If meant to be, I'll get to experience it someday :^^: thanks for the creative genius. Xo

Awww, thanks, Coming Up Roses! Trust me, the creative genius is all Mara, as you'll discover when you start doing PEs!

This one is bright, sweet, floral on me. There's a note that's "zingy" but there's nothing in here citrus or grapefruity so I think my nose is playing a trick on me. The longer it's on the more floral I get, but I like this flower combination a lot, I think it's the honeysuckle but I've always loved daisies too...of course the oak moss is awesome as always. Was sugared oak moss among the sugareds coming out? The grass notes seem to be the bed for everything else, which is perfect! Very pretty :heart:

I've only sniffed it in the bottle so far but it is just like a darling little lamb sitting in a flowery meadow in that state. I wish I'd ordered a full bottle!

I ordered a FB after I used my sampler up in a few days. I love, love this and the dry down is heavenly. I'm already starting to think I should have bought 2 bottles.

How did you do with the Popularity Potion in this blend greenergal? Did you get this in oil or spray?

I ended up getting this in oil but plan on taking about half of it and converting to a spray. I bought a big bottle of perfumers alcohol last year and just ordered a couple of atomizers. I think this would be great with a swipe of oil and one walk through spray.

This is a fresh grassy, floral. I don't get specific florals , just a blend. I wish I got more Honeysuckle. I like this one, a happy, youthful fresh scent. It's all outdoorsy clean grass and a bright, energetic vibe. The only drawback for me, this does not last long on my skin.

Hi greenergal - what ratio recipe do you use when you convert your phero enhanced oils to spray?

On cold sniff in vial I could smell grass, daisy and in general "green" high notes. On application, wet it was a little stabby, but then smoothed down on dry down to where I could smell the sweetgrass (which I love), and an overall light smoothness with a fragrance that dissipated quickly. Unfortunately, even though I really enjoyed this fragrance the green tones/ daisy ended up too pointy and I had a slight headache. Perhaps from the PP phero. Not sure, as I had never tried that phero before. Too bad, as this, for me was a very soft, pleasant fragrance, and although it amped the green tones a bit much on me, I think I can wear it easier than Panda. I just won't know until I test drive it again and/or try PP phero in something else to see if that factors into the headache aspect of things.

 

I got a similar reaction to Panda with Open Windows, only Panda amped more on me and irritated my eyes. Always have had to be careful of certain flowers/grasses with that.

I love this one to bits. It is soft and gentle. It reminds me of that freshly washed & dried wool sweater smell. I LOVE that smell. It's a natural, earthy type of smell, but luxurious, too. It reminds me of a white angora twinset my mum used to have, and which I used to covet... until my uncle, who was living with us at the time, decided to be a good houseguest, and washed & dried it for her. <_< So sad. Kind of funny, too. But I was so disappointed that I'd never inherit those beautiful sweaters. Now I kinda feel like I've gotten to wear them! lol! I really hope this one sticks around long enough for me to grab a bottle, but for the moment I'm going to savour the trial vial Molls was so generous in sending me. :wub:

Thanks! :)

I wore Lamb to work last night, and I had the best night there that I've had in AGES. I'm not sure if it was phero related or what, but despite the fact that the chef was getting all... *cheffy* in the kitchen, I was able to ignore the tension & just get on with dinner service. My customers were ALL googly-eyed and giddy. Ever last one of them. It was the weirdest thing I've ever experienced at work on a busy Saturday night. And I was in a great mood. I was smiling, laughing, cracking wittier jokes than I even knew I had in me. I had a big chunk of my section in stitches at two different points last night. I was ON FIRE! :lol:

 

So... I guess I somehow hit my sweet spot with PP last night, even though I thought I'd hit it before?

 

As far as the scent goes, it *felt* incredible. It was subtle, soft, unobtrusive. Perfect for work, really, because it comes off as "clean sweater" on me - almost a Woolite-clean kind of smell. It was not overpowering in the least. BUT, a couple of times the scent bloomed so big and large that it took a moment for me to realize that the great smell was coming from me. I took two people out to the patio, and as I stepped outside, this huge, gorgeous scent hit me in the face and I said to the people, "Wow! It smells really good out here!", and when I went back inside, I realized it was Lamb that had somehow hit the breeze outside and grew. It was like it suddenly expanded outward about 10 feet. That happened a couple of times last night. It was so cool! This is definitely an Eggers scent. :)
