  1. OMG, MMMMM!!!! This is SO deliciously foodie, probably the most foodie of the Sugared vanilla varieties, IMO. It smells like a buttery cheesecake croissant, or those awesome shortbread cookies, the ones you drive an hour to get on a Sunday morning from that *special* bakery that is so worth the trip. For anyone who loved Baskery, you have to get this, it's amazing!
  2. WOW!!! Like other reviews, this is totally not what I was expecting. And also like other reviews, this reminds me of when I used to sneak into my mother's room and put on her fragrances. Shimmering Sands on my skin becomes a rich, spicy, almost unisex fragrance. It really reminded me of her Opium perfume that she used to wear in '79. I was totally obsessed with it, I used to sneak in her room and spray it on a shirt that I kept in the back of my drawer to sniff. When I looked up the notes of the classic fragrance, I see that it had sandalwood and clove in it which seem to be the dominant notes on my skin, I'm not getting much gardenia at all. Just to be clear, it doesn't smell *exactly* like classic Opium, but it does remind me of that womanly exotic fragrance that I coveted so much as a kid. ​LOVE. I know it's the latest commercial jingle, but this song's been out a while and to me, really speaks this fragrance!
  3. These all look amazing! I am so curious about Shimmering Sands with SS4W, I've wanted another enhanced fragrance option for a while now! And Rainbow Mango with Levitation?? Yesssssss! And more B&B stuff, too? Can't wait for the notes!
  4. Welcome!! I'm chiming in to say Gotcha as well as Open Windows, both winners in my experience
  5. Could I reserve another cotton candy peach shampoo bar and a Lady Macbeth?
  6. OOOOOhhhh, this is DREAMY!!!! To me, this reminds me of my beloved Dance of Passion, the epitome of sexy orchid and honey, but it also reminds me a bit of Themyscira, maybe more due to the vanilla. In any case, if you loved either of these, you MUST have this Lady Macbeth!
  7. I have the shampoo bar, and I LOVE it! Luna is right, it is perfect for travel, no leaks all over your clothes and stuff, no TSA fretting if it's regulation, just pop it in a zip baggie, and away you go! And it smells AMAZING. I have to admit, I was a little concerned using this on my hair, because it's long and fine, and tangles easily. It makes an outrageously thick lather that rinses clean, but leaves it with just the right amount of moisture. I especially love that my bar is embossed with a dragonfly, a favorite of my late best friend.
  8. Can I reserve an itty set, one shampoo bar, and a glycerin soap please?
  9. I love this one! Wet, it's the perfect fusion of flowers and fruit. If violets were a tropical fruit, they would smell like this. Gorgeous!
  10. I wore this today to pick up a few essentials at the grocery store before the big snowstorm we are now getting here in the NE. I haven't worn Cougar in a long time, and of course, it made me feel awesome AF. While I was standing in line, this woman totally chatted me up like we had been besties for life, lol. I thought she was gonna invite me for dinner, for cripes sake! This is a fresh, white/green tea with a goodly dose of sweet dill on me. There is a sweetness, but I'm not specifically detecting the pear or apricot at all. And it is pretty light in sillage, which means work-friendly, yaaaaayyyy!! This is a must-have.
  11. So I did the quick "sniff-thru" when I got my hands on my sampler pack tonight (yes, all 19 of them!) and I kept coming back to this one. Without reviewing the notes, out of the vial I guessed fluffy marshmallow, citrus, and berries and that's exactly what it smelled like for the first ten minutes, just heavenly! Then like a magic trick, the rose emerged out of nowhere and I was a little concerned that it would take over but it didn't, it melted in with the vanilla and became sheer and creamy. And I love how the musk and white patchouli basenotes are keeping this lusciously sophisticated. Absolutely adore!
  12. Haven't ordered in a while, got the sampler, it's on the way, yayyyy!!
  13. Only if your undercover lover thinks you're a pesky pixie.
  14. Would you (or could you) re-brew this?!?? Gawd, I hope so!!! It sounds so fabulous, but it sold out before I knew what an impact LPMP would have on my life. It has all my favorite notes!!!! (I made my first order at the end of Aug. 2012) Violet-Raspberry fruity floral?? This sounds SOOO right up my alley!!!
  15. Violet is one of my favorite notes, and Sugared Violets is still a favorite of mine. To me it smells like this: Powdery violet encased in a crystalline pink sugar shell, sweet, but not too sweet. I'm not very good at reviews, but this image describes the scent perfectly for me. I also have Sugared Iris and have found the perfect image for that one as well, but it's on my old computer that crapped out! But to me, that one is more opaque and creamy. And I swear, the Mr. Bubble from when I was a kid in the 70's (ack! My forties are showing!!) smelled very similar to this. On me, it has a light to moderate sillage and about a six hour wear (that's just me, YMMV) I would say that this is still in my top ten, if not the top five for all-time faves. I hope it's a favorite of yours, too!
  16. I got this in virgin, and all I can say is OMGGGGG,THIS IS SOOOO DAMN GOOOOD!!!! This is the most amazing, perfect vanilla scent, EVER. I had not considered this before, because I don't have anyone to zap some Sexpionage on, so I was so glad to grab a bottle phero-free. Wet, I totally get the nutmeg-dusted rich, creamy eggnog. Then within thirty minutes, it starts morphing into the richest, creamiest, vanilla custard backed by the smoothest, most elegant resin. I cannot stop sniffing myself! Seriously, this is an instant favorite of mine, I'd better find someone to enchant with Sexpionage, or beg for another virgin re-brew. I LOVE THIS FRAGRANCE!! ​
  17. Hey, same here, too!! Signed up under the name I ​should ​have been, too much drama and everyone I work with is nosy and judgemental.
  18. Feel better soon, Mara! I'd like to reserve a sample set and a bottle of virgin Compromising Positions, please
  19. Now that I have a bottle of this in my collection, I can openly rave for my love of this scent! To echo hearts review, this is not tropical, but it is the most soft, fluffy clean laundry smell that I can totally get away with at work since we have a new head boss that HATES fragrance in my workplace. And I have been giving the phero a good test run as well, since I thought it didn't do anything for me, and no one else. Well, I am happy to report that I am getting hits and selfies from this! It is "cougar lite" as described, so it doesn't piss off the women who are dominant, but it does make them a fair bit chattier and accommodating, and it makes me happier and chattier as well. There is one co-worker who always seeks me out when I'm wearing anything with Lumina, and she is the one who complains about fragrance! Total win!
  20. Mine's clear, I was just going to ask if anyone else thought this smelled similar to the Balm Bomb one, my two samples smell almost identical.
  21. I had purchased Sensual Harmony a while back but traded it away because it didn't seem to mesh with my skin chemistry. The addition of powdered sugar in this version makes this for me. It does give the impression of a "white" scent, I keep thinking there's musk in here, too. Soft, well balanced, not too sandalwood heavy, with LFM. And PERMANENT? Hells yeah! Top of the list, for sure.
  22. OMG!!! Just got my sampler, what an amazing treat!! Thank you for the B&B samples, I've been DYING to try them. And OOOOOHHhhhhh!!! The beautiful bags!!! And the fragrances, outstanding!!! Almost all of these at first sniff I consider "work friendly", which is a big plus for me, seems I'm always working, lol. Now I'm off to test and phero bomb myself, hehe!
  23. I should have my sampler by tomorrow! Super excited to try the new Dom fragrance, it sounds divine! And a PERMANENT Balm Bomb fragrance?? Just in time, my Beautiful Dreamer is 2/3rds gone!
