Sugared Grapefruit

* Perfect! A blend of Ruby Red, Pink and White Grapefruit varieties, softened with multiple sugars. Tart and beautiful. You know what they say Ladies...6-8 years younger!

  • GRAPEFRUIT ~ Refreshes and uplifts the spirit, eases exhaustion; beauty and youth glamour. Lends an aura of "sparkle" to the wearer.
  • SUGAR ~ Attracts love, luck, sweetness and riches. Lust inducing, wishes granted.

So delicious!!!! A very very true ruby red grapefruit on me, very sweet but does not come off as candied to me; true wet ripe gushing grapefruit, but with no sourness. It immediately made my face smile hugely and make honh honh honh sounds. Sunshine in a bottle. Will greatly enjoy slathering this often, esp in the winter as a mood lifter. Eta I feel no need to layer this with anything - it feels quite complete on its own.

Bursting with flavor! This smells just like the fully ripe organic pink grapefruit I had last week. It was delicious at the peak of perfection, with just a touch of tartness to balance out the sweetness. I'm getting so hungry thinking about it that I will probably go out to the store to pick up a few more of those pink grapefruits!

 

Personally, I'm a citrus ho with a very big weakness for grapefruit, so getting a spray was a no-brainer for me. In fact, it's so good that I can use it allll by itself (phero-free?!!) and get a lift from it! Imagine that!

 

Thanks so much Mara for such a wonderful creation!

Because citrus oils are used in aromatherapy for encouraging a positive attitude. :)

Duh! And to think I didn't even try a grapefruit-based scent before LP... :perfume: Oh, the agony. ;-)

LOVE! DING!DING!DING! I swear someone just sat the most delicious, juiciest, shiniest, dripping red grapefruit halves in front of my nose! They are so fresh I can FEEL them spritz my face as I dig in my spoon! I want to be COATED in this fragrance! It reminds me of warm summer and sunshine - LOVE!

I love citrus notes in general, but especially lemon and grapefruit - they are such mood-lifters for me. Everything I love about Mara's use of grapefruit in LPs is contained in Sugared Grapefruit but also it makes me appreciate how delicate a note it is all on its own. The juicy sweet tangy quality leaps right out in the wet stage, but it fades pretty quickly to a soft tart whisper. And that's okay, it makes me ponder what to layer it with to extend its inherent sunshine-yness.

I'm going to be pulling out Glamour Puss for today and I think they will LOVE each other!!! But I could happily wear this all on it's own and be completely happy - this will likely be a re-purchase in a spray so that I can FOG appropriately :D

I'be tried this one a few times and each time it goes on bright and a little sharp but then within an hour or two it completely disappears. I'm so bummed! I'll have to maybe make a spray out of this or something.

This is the first of the Sugared line I purchased. I chose it because I love the grapefruit note in Cougar Potion so much. If I close my eyes and inhale, it smells just like a perfectly ripe ruby red grapefruit. Absolute heaven, and gives me such a lift.

 

The scent actually lasts longer than I expected, too, a couple hours at least. When it does fade the sugar leaves my skin smelling warm and sweet, like sitting in the summer sun with a light breeze caressing my skin.

This one is so accurate it's ridiculous! It smells EXACTLY like the juiciest, freshest most delicious grapefruit, so much so my mouth started watering when I put it on!

 

Interestingly as the day went on, it morphed into something darker and almost spicy in its sweetness. Definitely am going to need more of this! Possibly a spray, as others have mentioned.

I love this one. So sparkly, juicy and fresh! Definitely a "makes me feel young" scent. I use it by itself and to amp up Cougar. I got compliments on it already.

I did try it with Sugared Pink Musk but that combo did not work too well.

I also found that it works well with Bridezilla.

This is like standing in the sun and eating a grapefruit. REALLY. I snoof it and am at the little school here on the mountain, a little while back, and the kids are sharing some ruby grapefruit with me outside before art class. WOW. Perfect, uplifting, beautiful grapefruit. LOVE!

 

Oh and I forgot to add: on long drydown, the overt grapefruit burns off, and I'm left with this subtle, creamy-sweet, slight breath of citrus skin scent. Gorgeous and...well, kinda sophisticated! :)

:burning-heart:

This is so pretty & refreshing. I feel energized, 10+ years at least! It's brightening, in the dark I feel like I'm glowing. It's pink sunshine + the fountain of youth. It pairs well with so many scents but has the power to stand on it's own.

 

It's fab with LP pink, LP O, sugared cocoa butter, & OCCo white.

I got my two 1/3rd oz bottles, so glad I purchased those unsniffed! Anyway, today I went ahead & converted one to a spray. I spilled some :( I'm glad that if a spill had to happen, it happened with Sugared Grapefruit. I'm still on scent overload, but the scent is light enough that I haven't been hit with a headache or nausea on top of losing some of the precious, lol. So until the spill Sugared Grapefruit was fast becoming my favorite, & though I think we shall go on a break for a few days, I'm still in love. This is the ultimate grapefruit scent, the holy grail of citrus that I've been searching for ever since I got into the habit of leaving my pomelo / grapefruit / orange peels on the counter to enjoy the last bit of their essential oils as they dried.

This is one of my favorite sugared's ever…. I love combining this with Lemon and Lime, plus try it with the Pink Musk and its all grown up…wow this is such a versatile scent that everyone needs to run out and grab 3 or 4 bottles….

It is versatile, Dolphin Dolls. Idk, if you're in the same camp as me, but I've always had the habit of adding a citrus based scent to my candy type scents to keep them from becoming too cloying. I love super sweet scents, but they have to have the citrus zing to brighten them up, otherwise the sweetness gets too heavy & cloying for my liking. Love, love, love that Sugared Grapefruit is back & I've got the perfect one note scent to do this with now.

I would never have guessed I would like a grapefruit fragrance - to wear. I like the fruit well enough :D But CP won me over for starters and then I HAD to try the sugared grapefruit. I'm going to have to try it with the Pink Musk, that sounds like a great combo!

Besides being the scent equivalent of Photoshop, Sugared Grapefruit is fantastic at lifting your spirits. Nothing like a spritz of liquid sunshine to boost your mood.

Thanks for the reviews! Moving this up on my list.

 

I hadn't thought of it before, but now it totally makes sense that sugared grapefruit would give a dazzle to anything. Thanks Beccah!

The Sugareds are permanent, but I don't think the sale prices are fixed.

Maybe I misunderstood, Beccah; I thought only the several listed on the Permanent page were permanent and the other Sugared scents were limited editions.

This is beautiful. It's defiantly big bottle worthy. This is one I went FB on right off and I have about 1/4 bottle left. Just saying.

It's a little bit hard to find, it's kind of buried in the Perfumerie listings. So I'm posting the link to the order page here: http://lovepotionperfume.com/perfumerie/potion/SugaredLayerables/

 

They're definitely permanent, but you could always order a PE even if they weren't. That's actually the origin story of the PE option, as a way to just whip up what people were ordering instead of having 60+ separate listings.

The Sugared and FC scents are all permanent.

 

Here is what Mara said about the sale..

".., our core permanent sugars are not on there. Amber, Patch, Frank & Myrrh, Honey, and Pure Sugar. Even tho Sug Roses is part of that group I put a small number on there. More than 100 others to choose from though!"

 

Here's the link to that sales thread ..

It a very good deal. If you are new to them it's a cost effective way to try a few. If you already have favorites, buy 2 bottles. It's like getting $5 off a 1/3 oz bottle.

If you look at the listing you see how many of each are left.

Love this - it's uplifting and so pretty. And exactly what it sounds like - sugared grapefruit. I just rec'd it so haven't tried layering with anything yet, but can def see it would add sparkle to anything. And yes, huffing my arm right now. :D

This is a great way to describe how it progresses. So glad I finally got to try this! It made me smile when I sniffed this on myself and it just lifted my mood with its juicy brightness. MMMM!!! :Emoticons0086:

This really is a great scent. Fresh, citrusy, bright grapefruit! Smells exactly like the grapefruit note in Cougar. Would be great to refresh Cougar once the grapefruit starts to die down. I think I'll really enjoy this this summer!

This scent truly hit my citrus sweet spot! If you are looking for a picker-upper during winter or year-round then this a fantastic option. It's very bright on me and has an incredible staying power. I paired this with Sugared Amber (must have) to create a sexy night on the beach spin. I could literally bathe in this scent.
