Sorcerer's Apprentice (2/67)

  1. This was the one I was dreading, 'cause chocolate & I don't get along. But when I put it on, the chocolate becomes a slightly dirty backup singer and the tobacco & sweet smoke come out and turn this into a stunner! Up close it smells funky, but the throw is OMG sexy!! It smells unisex, or maybe a dark strong feminine. Very nice :-)

    Open Sesame

    Hmmmm..... this is strange. When I put it on, it was pure sesame. Not the oil, but the saw seeds. So light, it might not have been there at all. I was really looking forward to this one. Maybe it'll warm up and shine, or maybe I'll use it as a layering scent. To be retested.....
  3. Yeah.... that 'cracking down on spending' thing has to happen here, too. But once my sampler pack rolls in, I may, um, shall we say budget creatively.....
  4. Open Sesame will smell like sesame candy, which is mainly sesame and honey. There is supposed to be a secret spice, yes? Along with the resins, wood & sugar. I bought the sample pack this morning. They all sound so good!
  5. Open Sesame looks interesting! A middle eastern blend, maybe? Oh... Girly Twirly *swoon*..... is that a carnation in her teeth? I love carnation blends! eta: hmmm...... it looks more like a rose, now that I look closely.
  6. Oh jeez..... I have to watch my money this month, but this sounds lovely. Maybe I'll just watch my money go out the door *lol*

    Oh I like this! It starts off tart citrus & licorice, then blends & calms & goes a bit floral. The tart is always there - it's so refreshing.........
  8. Hmmmm.... so many of them look good! I see a sampler in my future. A few of them aren't going to do it for me, but ordering a sampler is more cost effective than buying individual samples. Of course, it's the ones I say "Uhhh.... I don't *think* so!" that turn out to be gorgeous on me

    The Sun

    I do like this! Can't tell ya what's in it, but on me it smells clean, warm, a bit masculine. I see that there's bergamot & amber (2 winners). The spearmint must be blending with something else because I don't smell it. When I smell it I feel slightly more alert & calm. I likey!
  10. Oh dear..... Well, at least I can breathe a sigh of relief. One I'm NOT in love with. Roses are icky on me and honey goes sour. I won't describe what it smells like because that would just be rude Gotta wash this off.
  11. Already!?!?? Geez....... Well, if February's releases are gentle & spring-like again, then my wallet is in a heap of trouble

    The World

    This one was MAPLE SYRUP and other stuff. It's not a cloying sticky foody scent; it's more a gentle sweet scent. Unfortunately, maple syrup and I don't get along. If you were to remove the maple syrup note and replace it with.... um....... cardamom and redwood, I'd adore it. It's actually not that bad for a maple scent. Just not something I can wear.

    The Star

    Dammit dammit dammit! Why do so many of the scents this month work so well on me!?!? I can not afford all these...... Yeah. At first it started as an almost soapy floral, and I was "yeah, whatever. No big thing." Then the soapiness disappeared and now it smells great! Delicate & girly while still being classy. I'm ready for spring!!
  14. This is another clean clear scent on me. I love anything with woods, so this is delightful! The sweetness - which I didn't realize was fruit until I came here too check the notes - aren't overwhelming. If I had my way it would be heavier on the woods, but it's still a *tiny* touch masculine. Very pretty, will be good for spring. It fades fast, tho.
