  1. Hmmm... this is the one I was most looking forward to because I heart all the cherry scents that Mara puts out but they never seem to last on me! But reading everyone's early reviews, and knowing that I amp chocolate qualities like crazy, I'm curious, do you all feel like the white chocolate overwhelms the cherry? (Also, hi again everybody! I've been so busy with school I haven't had a chance to log in for ages! Miss you all!)
  2. I'd say Mega Watt as well, and for me (though I'm a female) it creates the effects that you've described a cheerful sort of "I can do anything and this is totally managable!" vibe.
  3. This is actually the one I'm most excited to try in UN form. I only have it in Determination Potion and I wish I had a million bottles of that. It packs that little extra punch I need to make it through my day and keep spirits up.
  4. I've worn this a bunch to school recently because times have been getting tense as folks are nearing finals and I think it's been really helpful. Heart and Soul, on me, winds up giving off a vibe that I suppose is akin to Open Windows where people just want to open up and talk but it's also very soothing and grounded.
  5. I wore this one today and I must ditto everyone who wishes the cherry lasted longer. I get a sweet fruity scent on a backdrop of tanginess and something that pulls the scent into a sharper almost green for me, which I'm assuming is the verbena. I've been craving a more cherry scent (especially since Lusty Cherry fades fast on me), and while this is nice, I think I'll be sticking with OCCO: Ambrosia for my cherrier needs, haha.
  6. Same here! I keep stalking the review threads because last time spell potions were released, I felt like Whisker Wishes was a clear favorite, whereas this year, it seems like everyone's loving everything!
  7. I would go with SS4W or Popularity Potion. For me, personally, when I wear Popularity Potion, I feel like I somehow wind up the center of attention or feel like the life of the party. It's entertaining and light and fun. But when I wear SS4W, I feel like Wonder Woman. I feel strong, sexy, centered, and all around dazzling. So Popularity Potion may make Plonk think, "hey, this girl's cool and fun to be around," but SS4W will make *you* think, "I don't give a shit what Plonk thinks, *I'm* amazing."
  8. Yay! Bang is a great choice and I love it when things turn out well for folks!
  9. I got my shipping notice too! Can't wait for spell oils!
  10. Starting out, I get a lot of the sweetness from what I'm assuming is the strawberry, vetiver, and sugar, while the hay and coffee remains in the background but steadily present. On drydown, there's nothing but coffee and hay to me and the fragrance settles in to being even and spicy. There's something about Totem: Horse that really reminds me of Wheat Siren, but sweeter. I compared the notes but they have nothing in common. Perhaps the hay feels like oats and wheat to me? Anyway, I like the way the scent started out but overall, it's not very "me" so I'll be leaving it in trial vial form.
  11. I'm curious, are there any Sugared Layerable spots still open for images?

    Elfin Plum

    On me, this wears as a warm spice. Considering when it was released, it definitely evoked a sense of December/Christmas/the holiday season. Like mulled wine or hot cider, even. The depth of the musk is something that absolutely comes forward, but sits nicely underneath the plum and fig. If you're someone on whom plum plays nice, then this would be a great scent. Unfortunately, since I amp plums and maybe it's the fig or nutmeg bringing out that extra level of spice, I will probably leave this in trial vial form and not take it further. But this is a great scent to wear in the cold weather. It warms you up in a sense.
  13. http://www.lovepotionperfume.com/articles/Sets Here you go! It's just on the left on the main page. Click "Gift Shoppe" and then Sampler Sets
  14. Oooh! You are in for a treat. Whisker Wishes is a miracle worker. I use it sparingly because it's so potent, but since you're someone who's never tried it before I think you'll really love it. I'm excited for you now! it's neat when people get the chance to discover something awesome for themselves. Meanwhile, I can't wait for the spell potions to arrive. I really want to double back and get Hex Deflection but I'm waiting semi-patiently.
  15. Welcome, reincarnated! And great username!!
  16. I'd say whichever ones make *you* feel confident and sexy, especially if you've used some to good effect before. I asked this same question once so here's what everyone told me. I opted for SS4W, because it made me feel like Wonder Woman all night long. If you wish to amp it up a bit further, Bang! perhaps? I'll let everyone else weigh in though since they are far more knowledgeable.
  17. I ultimately went with Fascination Potion and Road Opener as FBs and the double monthly trial vial set. I feel like I should've grabbed a full bottle of the Hex Deflector, but since its notes are so different from Black Cat Hex Breaker, I'll be good and wait it out til I try out the notes.
  18. Since everyone was raving about this scent, I knew I had to take the plunge and get one of my own. Thanks to hearts, I literally just got my bottle of Lusty Cherry and rolled some on, so I know that I'll have to account for travel shock and let it set for a while and try again. My initial take on Spring's Lusty Cherry is probably a duplicate of Rose's early encounters with it. Immediately upon application, I get a great cherry scent. It reminds me of the cherry that's in OCCO: Ambrosia. I might be wrong about that, but in my imagination, I see OCCO: Ambrosia as having this bright red syrupy maraschino-esque cherry and Lusty Cherry as being this dark sensuous kind of thing, but they come off kind of similarly in that single note to me. Anyway, back on track. So Lusty Cherry unfolds in waves. The first wave, while wet, is cherry with a background of vanilla. Then the wave of vanilla-amber emerges and it's smooth and even. And the cherry disappears. Then I get all patchouli. Or an amber-y patchouli at the very least. But no cherry at all! I need to figure out a way to make the cherry like the aliens in Independence Day after they're unsucessfully nuked. I want to be running around yelling, "The cherry remains! The cherry remains!" But honestly, it might just be due to travel shock. I can still appreciate the overall wonderfulness of this fragrance, and I'm sure it'll age super well! So I'm going to let it sit around before I try it some more. (Though I'm sure I'll wind up caving and wearing it plenty more when it should be resting, it's lovely enough that I keep sniffing my wrist with or without the cherry). Also, I just wanted to write in review somewhere - either as a reminder to myself or for others - this would go amazingly well with Aja. Something about the smutty honey would blend so well with the layers of cherry, amber, boozy vanilla, and patchouli.
  19. This is the most antsy I've ever been to purchase a set of LP's.
  20. Now you've got me curious. How much do you use? Meanwhile, I use DHEAS often enough and I think I notice a crash occasionally. It depends on how many days in a row I wear/refresh it. Then again, since I tend to wear it in a lot of heavy social situations (out to parties, meeting friends for birthdays, etc) it could just be the strain of having to stay awake for so many late nights. Anyway, it is my favorite single molecule. I love spritzing it on over pretty much anything for that sparkly fun feeling. I'm not sure if it makes me feel youthful as much as it does perky. But I suppose those two descriptors might go hand in hand sometimes.
  21. I just had the urge to spritz this right now and for me, I get all maples and sugars and not a lot of vanilla. It's sweet, but not overwhelmingly so. It's definitely not cloying or anything to the nose. It's like a light and airy maple syrup for me. It makes me want pancakes or waffles, actually! Haha.
  22. Thanks! It was the latter part of Mara's original post of not needing to do so at the same time that threw me off. I overthought what she meant. Thanks for the clarification, Luna! Last time spell potions were offered, we were able to pick and choose so I was hoping the same would still apply but thought I'd ask just to be sure. But you're right, it would be a ton of work!
  23. Question: if we wanted to only buy one sampler set, would we be able to pick and choose the ten that are included or would it just be either alphabetical set 1 or alphabetical set 2?
  24. I'm getting sampler sets too. I'm definitely getting an FB or two of something, I'm oscillating between Road Opener, Blessing Oil, and Fascination Potion.
