  1. I agree with you, DD. The newer one is to my nose, richer, a tad more syrupy? But still, very beautiful an one of those that is a great ager!
  2. OMG tyvey! LMAO!!! Other than in wax melts, I really have no experience with G2. YIKES!!!! This is really funny, but I am wary of what this one might do to me! As I recall, in wax melts, it behaves very much like Open Windows for me. It has been a while. Now I will have to break out one of those melts and try this in the safety of my own home with my partner. What the hell? I listen to him being chatty, so turn about is fair play!
  3. I had so hoped to try a trial vial of this one and Closer and had requested these two for my forum freebies with my last two orders, but they were not included in my orders, so I guess they were not meant to be.
  4. I have always loved them too, luna. Only recently that I have been able to actually wear them well, and as with you, I do have to be careful with some of the white florals. They can be a bit bitey, sweet, and spikey on me. BUT... if they are well balanced with other notes to smooth and soften them, they are just incredible.
  5. I have a little trial vial of this one that I am using sparingly. It's just gorgeous and when I am able to indulge and spend some $$$, I really want a bottle of this liquid perfection! I love this one!
  6. I LOVE Gardenia, luna! As you likely know, it is ruled by your forum name. I also love Tuberose and Night Blooming Cereus. My cheemistry has changed, yet again, and where white flowers never used to work on my skin, I am adoring them now. Oh, and Orange Blossom, too!
  7. It's hard to go wrong with Sugared Honeycomb imho, reincarnated. To me, it is my go to layerable. Not only does it add a lovely depth to most things, I find that on my skin, it lends impressive longevity to many perfumes. I personally can't wear Sandalwood or Sandalwood blends unless it's just a light touch, but I would think it would blend quite nicely with SH.
  8. I adore this one too. It smells just like the actual blossoms to me, which always invoke a sunny, happy feeling. The touch of sugar seems to give it a nicely rounded feel. Leave it to Mara to improve upon nature! Also, this is special to me because my lovely great niece is on the label.
  9. Androstenol, I have had the same issues with my PH going way too acidic. I revisited various scents once I had gotten it more balanced and was blown away by the degree of the change in how they played on my skin. Mostly, it was a positive change, but I have actually had the reverse happen and in a few cases, old favorite scents ended up either amping, misbehaving or just plain smelling bad on me, much to my dismay. I do like Aja now though and for now, at least, so does my PH.
  10. I'm good with the DOM, can't wait to experience this scent. Definitely on my wish list!
  11. I have this problem with leather scents too johnsonlisa. Sad, because I do love them on other people and I adore the scent of actual leather!
  12. Thank you, luna and Blanche. If it is fruit heavy, then it might work for me. The sweetness can often balance out the greeness of vertiver for me.
  13. Can anyone tell me how strong the vetiver is in this? I like vetiver very much but it amps on my skin to the point of screaming.
  14. Nothing to complain about with cops, although I will say that for some reason, at times the results are stellar and other times, nothing. I am certain that this has an explanation which involves my own chemistry, either physically or emotionally. ( post menopausal)
  15. Hi Mara and John! So grateful to get my package o' awesomeness today. Thank you for the sniffies. I LOVE my Lisa's Golden Goddess and once I give my Lovestruck's Honeyed Blackberry a try, will post a review. So happy!
  16. This is so changeable for me and varies a great deal depending on various factors, but for LPs, most recently: 1.OCCO Ambrosia 2014 ( attributing this to my winter need for warmth and light) 2. NOX ( a huge comfort scent for me and quite magickal) 3. Any of the honey based scents 4. Nasty Habits 5. Jouir De ( only at number five because I HOARD the precious! ) As for pheros, 1. Teddy BB 2. Teddy BB 3. Teddy BB 4 LFM 5 LFN
  17. Sounds so yummy! I am all about the honey. I requested this as one of my free trial vials.
  18. Wild Autumn, do you think that perhaps BPAL's Snake Oil would be close to Closer? IMO, Snake Oil is pretty much O, with spices added?
  19. Awesome report, reincarnated! I love LFN. Since LFM is one of my fave pheros, this one is a natural go to for sexier intentions. Not over the top heavily sexy IMO. For me, that honor goes to Sexpionage. With LFN, my experience has been that it is much the same as LFM, only with a few more layers of depth in its intention. Perfection!
  20. I should def not be spending, but...Lisa's Golden Goddess and Lovestruck's Honeyed Blackberry.
  21. LOL WildAutumn! It really is like sweet, dark, liquid sex in a bottle. Very heady. No pun intended!
  22. MDC,I have no idea. I have never smelled, Closer. BPAL's O however, is Amber, Honey and Vanilla. Sweet, dark and somewhat..syrupy? I think it is VERY sexy!
  23. WildAutumn, I LOVE BPAL's O! I buy a couple of bottles of it at the same time just so I can let it age. Time makes it even more exquisite. I find it to be wonderfully congruent with either OMG, or LFN. It covers cops quite well for me.
  24. YES, halo! THIS!!! She has no business speaking that way to a customer's children, OR customers! My blood boils just reading this. I know I sound like a mega bitch and I can be, but mostly, I am super nice. Until I run into something like this..and then...I'm not.
  25. Wild Autumn, that woman was horror, but I really think you can chalk it all up to her just being a miserable bitch! Had someone pulled that shit with me, I would have turned to my kids and started sweetly talking to my kids, loud enough for her to hear what I was saying, while explaining to them that the "lady," must be having a bad day, to please ignore her, that she clearly lacks manners, needs to learn respect for other people's boundaries, mind her own business, and that I was so proud of them for having the good manners that I try to instill in them, all the while, smiling sweetly...even
