  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 :-)

  2. 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. I'm glad I have a sampler coming, since I have to really crack down on my spending! However, I think I will be able to swing at least one bottle, and so far it looks like Smoking Bun. We'll see after the sampler!!

    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. A few friends and myself LOVE Vicars and Tarts, I wonder if Open Sesame is going to be on the same page as that.............. it sounds delish!!! :party:

    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. 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.........

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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!!

  10. 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.

  11. Wow. I knew this would be a clean & pretty scent but WOW. It doesn't strike me as aquatic, tho - which is good. Most aquatics go weird on me. I get a soft clean mint, sweetness, tea (green?), lime that doesn't scream "citrus!!!" on me, and - of course - musk. I don't remember what zucchini blossoms smell like, so I can't say if they're present. It doesn't matter, because this is a light clean summer scent. Perfect for todays almost 70 degree weather!

  12. I put this on this morning and it was Myrrh, Earth & maybe white musk. I liked it. Slightly masculine, very clean. Didn't get much throw and the up close smell was okay. But then it dried and I'd get this lovely *very light* vanilla woody(?) clean smell wafting up. "What smells so nice? Oh! It's MEEEEE!" :shocked: When I catch whiffs of it, it helps clean away mental clutter. Do I need a bottle? Maybe.......

  13. This is the first one I tried (since it was first in line :-) ). In the vial it smelled like a combo of In the Mood and some really good incense. When I put it on, the In the Mood part went *poof* & disappeared. I was left with really good dry incense - not the headshop kind, but the kind you get at the funky hidden away import store in the nearest college town. Then some juicy purpley-red fruits came & joined in the fun. Now, I *love* good incense, but purple-red fruits have never been my thing, so I'm torn. Do I love it or not? I couldn't tell what it dried down to because I applied it before bed & fell asleep sniffing my wrists. I 'll retest this baby in the daytime.

  14. Pulled this one out last night. It much nicer aged, I think. When I smell it on me, I get visions of piles of white powder (ahem) and a handful of young green leaves. It smells like green & white & cool mountain air. Spices? Musk? Copal? Civet? Nope. Just clean & green/white. This'll be nice come springtime!

  15. After a couple months of funky skin chemistry, I felt it was safe to try my LP's again. This was the first I pulled out, and wow has it changed! A gorgeous woody incense (incense cedar?) with a clean vibe from the florals. It's soft & pretty, but there's an underlying strength. After all this time, I'm finally figuring out what works on me - and this works!

  16. I hope I'm not too late! I just ordered the *hopefully December* sample set. When it first went up, finances were sketchy at best, but now...... the December ones sound so yummy I had to have them. Silly perfume oil addiction.


    But the January releases look awesome, too. Whatever shall I do?? :666:

  17. You know Jester, they have a custom sugared option. I believe it has been explained to us. The ladies wanted to give us the custom option. So that they don't have to keep so many sugareds on hand. :lol:

    I saw that! I just worry that it won't be quite the same - altered recipe, differently sourced oils, really paranoid stuff *LOL*. I should just do it, because it really is an investment (since they age so well)!
