  1. First off, welcome! Secondly, I agree with the other posters in saying that you may have used a little too much. Also, keep in mind that you may have gotten quite a wallop of pheros too when you first opened your package. Even though everything is nicely packaged and sealed, I remember getting a little dizzy and even a bit nauseous when I received my first order. Don't worry though; just give it a little time, and start off small. The advice from the veterans here is great... definitely recommend reading through the different forums! You are going to have so much fun!
  2. I'm not always a pinky pink girl... but it's so much fun to be one once in a while. Definitely going to take this combo out for a whirl. I love the great ideas I get from this forum!
  3. I usually wear the Cougar phero in the Enduring Appeal scent, and had completely forgotten that I had gotten a sample of this to try! I put this on today mixed with unscented lotion all across my upper body. It's interesting to me that both Cougar scents have grapefruit as an ingredient, but they smell so different and evoke such different images. On me, Cougar Potion smells mostly sweet and musky... like some others who reviewed this, I also thought this perhaps had vanilla in it. It gave me a feeling of warmth, and a more grounded type of sexy than Enduring Appeal (which is brighter, more open, more... giggly). The phero, as usual, was a knockout. I went to a store of buy some new drapes, and was constantly asked if I needed help. One clerk, as he passed by me for the third time, asked if I was married. Pheros are really the secret weapon in getting attentive customer service these days! As a personal preference, I think I still prefer Enduring Appeal as my go-to scent. But Cougar Potion is really beautiful, and wears really well (I still smell it 6 hours later)!

    Snow Musk

    I was a little hesitant to try this one on, since it was released as a winter scent. But to my surprise, this works with the warmer weather as well! As several other reviewers have mentioned, Snow Musk is veryvery light on my skin. I'm curious if anyone had gotten a full spray bottle of this; how does it diffuse? With the oil, it is so subtle and soft... I can't imagine anyone else being able to smell this without nuzzling up to my neck! But I really like it on me. I previously had qualms about musks precisely because they seemed so heavy and cloying on my skin, but Snow Musk has none of those characteristics. I do get the barest hint of peppermint, but not in a food/candy sort of sense (it just seems like a coolness on my nose). This scent whispers instead of screams, wraps around you gently instead of bashes you over the head. I love it! I didn't expect to find a 'me' scent today, but I did!
  5. Oh shucks. Been lurking here for daaaaays now, was hoping to see the NRs today!

    Just wanted to send a warm welcome! Nice to see someone here from my neck of the woods. Enjoy experimenting; it's a blast!

    Skool's Out!

    Got this one as a sampler and decided to try it on today. Not what I expected AT ALL. I was thinking that I'd get sugary lightness and fluff, but I'm smelling more smoldering tropical lushness. Very grown up, very dancing-to-bongo-drum-beats. On my skin, I definitely get the coconut, and possibly the sandalwood. I agree that this seems rather unisex; would love to smell this on a guy, as I'm finding it verrrrry sexy. Rawr.
  9. Oh yum yum. I saw this thread go active a couple weeks ago, and it was a lovely surprise to discover a sample of this in my most recent order! I'm not usually big on foody/sweet scents, but this is SO DELICIOUS I WANT TO LICK MY ARM. This smells so tart and happy. I don't know if I get most of the notes; on my skin, it's very very passionfruit-y. Sometimes I thiiiiiink I get a little peach, or maybe a little cream. Oh jeebus, this is literally making my mouth water. It reminds me a lot of my favorite passionfruit candy, made by a small artisan shop that I will now have to go visit as soon as humanly possible. I'm not sure how I would handle this as an all-the-time scent. But this is a fantastic appetite-trigger-er. Erm. Not that my appetite needs triggering. But I can see, if I was feeling getting over a cold and feeling blah, this would be the perfect thing to put on.
  10. Thank you! And yes, that kitten has ridiculous mind-melting powers with that lick.
  11. Wow. I had to come back and share my experience today with Levitation. This is the first day I wore it out, and I actually like the scent more as it diffuses in public. Pheromone-wise, this made me REALLY comfortable talking with strangers. I live in New York... while not unfriendly, we're not usually chatty folk. Today, I burst out with random small talk as I stood in line at Whole Foods and even smiled at strangers (and got a compliment back!). I'm fairly new to pheromones, and I'd usually chalk this behavior up to a beautiful spring day... but then I got THE BEST customer service I've ever received in my entire life!! I was helping a client prep for a dinner party, and had ordered a tray of desserts at a bakery. When I went to pick it up, I found out that they had gotten my order wrong. The manager on duty was reasonably apologetic, but then she started going way beyond the norm to make sure I was happy. She first called other stores to try to cobble together my original order for me. I needed to go to my client's apartment to start setting up, and so left her with my number, figuring I would just drop by again later. She called me a half hour later, letting me know that she was able to get most of my original order. Then she tells me that she'll comp me an additional tray of other goodies. THEN she sent an employee to deliver the goods to my client's apartment. AND THEN she refunded me the entire purchase price. The entire time at the store, she was also gushing about how reasonable I'm being about the mistake. I think I have to attribute at least some of this service to Levitation (although I'm definitely writing to the bakery website to give her a props up)!! It was awesome.
  12. Hm. I am helping out a client with party prep this evening, and I decided to try out the new Levitation scent. Open Windows plus DHEAS. Not sure if that will make everyone too chatty for your purposes, but just wanted to give it a shout-out!
  13. I just got my package, and raced to dab some of this on! I'm really loving the look of Levitation, right off the bat. The green glitter suspended in the oil looks so pretty. When wet, I really smell the sweet strawberry notes. Reminds me of the flavored lip gloss I used as a girl. But the scent morphs within minutes on my skin. One moment it was sweet, then abruptly became sweet orchid, with the orchid getting stronger as it dries. Right now, after about 15 minutes, it has settled into a really feminine scent. I would say that this falls on the side of 'girly' rather than 'sophisticated'. It's not overly floral, but has a very... rounded, warm summery smell (does that even make sense?). I wouldn't say that this scent is very 'me', though I will give it time and a few test runs to see. To the poster who asked if this was similar to Enduring Appeal... it is definitely not, at least on me. Enduring Appeal is much brighter and fresher; this one is warmer and sweeter.
  14. Wow, have to join in the 'me toooooo!' chorus, definitely didn't expect such a fast turnaround. Getting that email is so exciting!
  15. Sigh. I *thought* I had my selections all sorted out. But then I read this thread and now I feel like I neeeeeeeeeeed a full bottle of Levitation. Everyone here is such a bad influence.
  16. Oh, I completely agree, MissHazel. This is VERY much an aromatherapy scent. I haven't even used it outside of my apartment yet. It's really not about how I smell to other people with this one at all!
  17. Wow, so much love for this scent already! I'm definitely interested, especially since my skin chemistry didn't like the last Open Windows scent. And with the added DHEAS, this sounds like a power punch! Was definitely going to get a trail sample, but am now contemplating a full bottle right off the bat. Can't wait until the first reviews start rolling in so I can make my final decision!
  18. It's a crazy upside-down kind of thought... but I was almost *excited* for that time of the month to roll on by, just so I could finally try this scent. And I have to say I wasn't disappointed. Heart's Ease is all soft smells and cozy feelings; I felt comfortable, no hard edges anywhere to be seen! This is a rather sweet floral fragrance, with the lavender being the strongest note on my skin. It was quite relaxing to sit there and sniff on this; I can see myself using this one right before bedtime. I was actually fairly surprised at how quick the self-effects were. I had just returned from a fairly stressful day, and dabbed on a little on both wrists. After about 10 minutes, I found that I was perfectly content to just sit there and watch some TV. This is an amazing scent to add to the little arsenal I'm building!
  19. Aaaaaaaahhh. I've been checking the site every few hours ever since the new releases were announced, hoping for more information. I have officially become a stalker.
  20. Ohhh, that's a great idea, actually! It's like... a sexy ambush!
  21. Oh yay!! I'm glad that I haven't put in an order yet, so I can try some of these! A sample of Levitation will definitely be in the queue. Labels are tantalizingly attractive; can't wait to hear details!
  22. What a fun scent! This is clean, wholesome goodness in a bottle. On application, Happy Water smells very unisex to me... reminiscent of aftershave, almost. But once this settles down on my skin, the florals come busting out, making it uniquely feminine. For some reason, this evokes the feeling of being a college freshman in me, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. Not that I want to greet every morning with that attitude, but this definitely makes the short-list for a full bottle purchase!
  23. I'm sorry to hear that they will be discontinued, but understand the limited time and resources. I guess I was fortunate then, to have gotten my first order in when they were available! They really were the perfect way to get started, and I have been really enjoying my experimentation with each scent. Each of them have been like a little gateway drug. As usual though, much thanks for trying out new products/options all the time; I am definitely hooked!
  24. Welcome to the forums! You're getting great advice; I wanted to chime in as another newcomer to the world of pheromones. The phero-enhanced scents sample kit is a FANTASTIC way to start. It's soooo easy to get overwhelmed with reading and learning and deciding. The samples give you the ability to test out how different scents and pheros wear on you (and they are VERY different). And it is so much fun experimenting. Off your post though, I would also suggest Sneaky Clean (with Super Sexy). It's clean and light, and I think the phero could work in all three situations for you. Also, have to give some love to the other Cougar-enhanced scent, Enduring Appeal. It is a really bright, elegant, cheerful fragrance. My absolute favorite of the pack so far.
  25. 100% agreement with those who say this is a good Spring scent. It reminds me of how a garden smells after a rainfall. I can see myself not liking it as much when it gets really hot (it's slightly sweet, and sweet smells plus being hot sometimes gives me headaches), but it's perfect with cool-but-warming weather. This was the only sample from my pack that came as an alcohol base. The scent does diffuse MUCH faster; it only lasts a few hours on my dry skin. But it mellows out beautifully. I don't have a peg on it yet from just being around strangers, but I'm dogsitting this weekend and they LOVE ME more than usual. I've been here for hours and all they want to do is sit riiiiiiiight next to me... *sniff*sniff*sniiiiiiiiiffffff*. Ha. Quite a funny response!
