  1. I was excited to try this based on the label alone--what can I say, I'm a sucker for great branding. The little lamb surrounded by green grass is exactly a description of the aroma: a very present green grass smell with a warm fuzzy heart of oakmoss and sweetness. For my skin as the day goes on, the smell of oakmoss warms and comes forward more until it's just about the only note with a hint of floral. It's an interesting scent experience for this one with me, and I enjoy the difference in release times. I will have to comment on any phero reactions after additional testing.
  2. Memomare and Cheesy said it so well about the elegance and mastery of this scent. From reading it, I thought Soul Food 2015 would be more 'somber' like Spirit Bottle 2015. In the vial though, it's a subtle piece of indescribable glory. I think this perfume is feelings more than one particular scent. It's the memory of baking with grandma, curling up with a well-worn book under soft and heavy covers, nuzzling your face against a baby's soft skin, watching a fireplace crackle and burn... Even though my chemistry is trying to amp the patch, I think the benzoin and sandalwood are keeping it in check, with a barely there hint of cinnamon. It is dumb how gorgeous this is, lol. I think this would be divine as a wax tart with a bonding phero like Heart & Soul or Perfect Match. (Wink, wink, nudge, nudge... lol . Kinda.)
  3. This is lovely, but it's a lot "heavier" than I thought, considering the ingredients (which I consider delicate smelling). It could be because I'm a lavender ho, and developing some nose-blindness, but I don't really pick up on the lavender as much as the patch, oakmoss, and chamomile. The peppermint and eucalyptus are there when wet, but then all but disappear on me after dry-down. It's herbal and lavendery enough for me to enjoy, but I'm not sure about a full bottle... A sample seems adequate for now. I can see this being one that might surprise you with aging. -- ETA: Two hours later, I'm mostly all patchouli and something fighting to be lavender with a bit of oakmoss. Sigh... I wish I didn't amp patch so much that it kills everything next to it. So many blends I can't fully indulge in...
  4. It's a sign, Cheesy! Wear Totem: Bat every evening on your stroll, and you'll have more than winged mammals heading in you direction
  5. Belle, sometimes LFM and my cycle don't mix either. My hormones can get the best of me and flatten out even the best of 'mones. LFM is no different. I've experienced being a bit peevish wearing it, even though more often than not it puts a glide in my step and smile on everyone else's face. I will add that (mysteriously) Pirouette is the one fragrance I've smelled the whole gamut of notes on. There have been times when it's all nut one week, then all citrus three days later, then all sugar the next week, then all coconut the week after that... It's a baffling testament to personal chemistry and how skilled Mara is as a master perfumer. More experienced members can speak to the use of more. My two cents would be to give it another go either on your cycle or off, in a few more days.
  6. Hahaha, yes, I had to learn that one here, too! It's used often in the forums. I should check out if I can get a Flutterby FB myself. It is truly delicious and a great phero pairing.
  7. That's an amazing report, belle-ville! I've never had a significant other, so I am not familiar with the up and downs or arguments that may arise. It sounds like H&S definitely works for you and him, which is wonderful. Just curious how much Flutterby did you apply and where? I know YMMV, but H&S has definitely been one of those pheros I know wore I'm going to look for these!
  8. This is hilarious. I am sorry he took a nibble, but this is frickin' hilarious. And that Austin Powers meme?
  9. I am going to post on Amazon too, a short version, but wanted to include yet another review singing Cougar Potion's praises! The scent package is a refreshing blend of citrus and amber/musk. If you like resiny smooth perfume on top of a warm sugary sweet base, this is a great bet. The grapefruit citrus goes on bright, but after an hour or so the amber and musk combination is just about the only thing left on my skin. Whoo, this stuff really warms and blooms with your body temperature! You only need light application in your warmest spots, or slightly more on your cooler surfaces. The hotter this blend gets, the more it diffuses--until you are a cloud of glamour and sultry femininity wrapped in the warmth of sugared amber and musk. (I'm not even a huge fan of amber, or many resins, but this perfume is too gorgeous to dislike.) It really makes a great scent cloud. The cougar pheromone has caused people who I didn't even notice make a beeline for me and start chatting like they just HAD to say something. On the flip side, I've had experiences where it makes men more nervous, and then begin to physically peacock to compensate I suppose. Older men (and even a lesbian woman once) seem to have a double-take moment at first. At work I've seen a slightly younger, nervous man stick his hand in his white coat (a la Napoleon portraiture) to seem cooler--I wanted to burst out laughing! And another time, an older (very cute) man came into the office and started leaning on a nearby coat-rack while chatting at my desk.. Then he flexed his pecs. TWICE. (LOL, My absolute favorite phero reaction to this day!!!) In my head I was likeeee.... "Did you just--nah, probably my imagination. Oh--NOPE. You did it again. Yup, that is the pheros." Hilarious stuff. I can say with certainty, this was the one perfume that got my attention and clued me in to Mara's indescribable talents.
  10. Been way out of the loop (and country) these past weeks, but I hope I'm not too late to claim the last bottle of Stefanija?
  11. Because I was such a hot mess last year during the sale (it was my first sale--was randomly picking freebies based on names and notes I'd never smelled, doh!) I kinda went insane on my first order... It's great though, 'cause I boosted my UN collection and bought favorites again. Doubled up on my Pirouette, Coquette, and Sweet Surrender FBs, then picked a few Etsy bottles I'd been eyeing for months. With 11 freebies, I'm not sure how the hell a person can rationalize making another order.... But I'm gonna do my damnedest in two weeks when I get paid again, lol. I like how everyone is brainstorming ways to reduce extra expenses. I'll be keeping an eye on this thread for ideas! I think the main thing for a lot of people is eating out. From today to the end of the month, I'm gonna try to make breakfast and lunch ($10-15 saved), and restrict happy hours/networking nights down to only four outings this month (that's at least $25 saved, not counting if I'm treating the other person... which could be as high as $50-60). Oh, and I've got to stop taking taxi's and uber in(to) the city!!! Those $16 here and there adds up to valuable bottles after all, lol. Holy crapiola, here I am blaming an addiction to buying LP's, when I am clearly bleeding money every week for no reason. Whoa. ...I guess this Sale was actually a really good thing then. Hm. Well, thank you everybody!!!!
  12. Is there one last bottle of LV's White Cobra by chance? I'd love to claim one to give a whirl with some of my UN Dom or Leather.
  13. WHAAAT?! NUUUUUUU! But I just bought a new sofa!!! *Activate Excel beast mode, where recorded inventory and personal finances are raked with a fine tooth comb for liquid assets* But really... What Halo said is absolutely, unfortunately true. But hopefully it will go on long enough for everyone to participate in at least once--this is one of the more important sales I look forward to in life, lol. I need a hubby like SirenSong to warn! At least she can bat her eyes at him and then click away on PayPal...
  14. I'm hoping the July 2015 releases include a Coconut Breeze-like blend somewhere. This one has been haunting me for a while since I started liking coconut scents. (Mara's are what I would consider dry and rich, whereas others often trigger my allergy and make my throat tight.) I adore cocoa butter, but it's a lesser used note I've noticed... Really crossing my fingers for a re-brew or sister-brew of this!
  15. Coconut Breeze please! It just sounds so amazing, and has been long gone.
  16. D'oh! I just took a vow of financial responsibility for the next three months... My timing couldn't have been worse.
  17. I wish I could get that softly femme effect with an occasional knife's edge... Sounds like an ideal female rolemodel indeed! Yesterday, I wore some Dominance spray to a voting meeting (one spray each to back of neck, crook of elbows, between thighs). One of our (elderly but legendary) physicians who I have a good rapport with admitted he didn't even recognize me when I greeted him and gave instructions regarding voting. As he was walking away he said, "OH! I didn't even recognize you, Veronica." and then, "You've done something different. Is it your hair?" I was thinking, "This rat's nest that I just swept over one shoulder? Uhhh..." Really, nothing was majorly different, except that I was wearing Dominance. Hehehe. And then as he was leaving, after I heard him giving the younger doctors hell (literally calling people "cowardly" lol) he exited the meeting and spoke to me again--sweet as pie. He said thoughtfully, "It must be the hair..." I threw him a bone and admitted I parted it differently. And he said, "Yeah. That's probably it... It looks different." and then as he was walking away he added over his shoulder, "Still beautiful by any standards. But different." And kept going. I laughed for the next ten minutes at phero-bombing an eighty-something year-old man.
  18. Thanks for asking this, Memorare. I've been wondering about this myself. I haven't had much experience with my UN G2, because the idea of having to key into all the reactions from the various women I work with seems exhausting. (Their personalities are all over the place.) I still want to snag a sample of Love is Love at some point so hopefully I can provide some comparisons soon.
  19. I have the 60/40 spray on today--two sprays to the chest, one and a half on the abdomen, one to the back of my neck, one split between forearms. I was probably ghosting like a mofo this morning, but I didn't care. Called an uber car to take to work just for the hell of things (and I was behind). The guy opened the door for me as I approached the car, but didn't say much else for the whole ride until I was getting out--which is uncommon for my rides, actually. More often than not, taxi and uber drivers like to chat with me, pheros or no. This guy didn't say much, and I asked him to change directions twice. He was very responsive and easy-going the whole time. Not bad. Then I got to work and today went really well. I felt a low murmur of confidence in my head, and not so anxious about the long day. Yesterday was godawful. I literally wanted to punch everyone in their face--even imagined it throughout the day. Everything and person was dry humping my last nerve. But today, I'm feeling cool and removed. I'm getting things done left and right and not even giving it much thought. Nothing's annoying me at all. Also, it is almost imperceptible, but I don't feel like the youngest person on the floor anymore. I feel older and more... capable? Mature? I dunno. But no one is looking me up and down like the dumb young thing today. That's rather nice. Not sure how much can be attributed to UN Dom or just Friday payday, but I thought I'd mention it...
  20. Donsie, that sounds like you were definitely getting hits! Bat is a great phero fragrance for me so I would hope you can enjoy it some more and find a good sweet spot you can rely on.
  21. Ahhh, nice. Thanks for the tip, Stacy. (I live in the DC area, so I'll remember that!) I adore sugary vanilla and grapefruit based scents, but I can only do white resins typically so I don't get stabbed in the third eye. The white amber in CP really helps the scent to stick to my skin, and I never over-apply because the scent is a great marker for amount. Like someone mentioned upthread, I think the ingredients in CP are just as effective as the Stone Cougar pheros alone. To Mara's brilliant credit, Cougar Potion is a deliciously mature pink and white scent that wears as luxuriously as a silk. I've never had a bad time when I let the Cougar out. I FRIGGIN LOVE IT.
  22. You're absolutely right, Dolly. The label is also the best representation of any scents on LP, in my opinion. Scented Cougar reminds me of evening gloves, silk, and elegance all rolled into one. When I'm wearing Cougar Potion, I feel like I'm the woman on the label, even if my hair isn't combed and I've got holey sweats on. XD
  23. Excellent feedback, ladies. Thank you so much for clearing that up! As tempting as the crazy good hits Shelly and others have gotten from 2x Cougar in alcohol, I will stick with the 1/3 or 333 mcg strength. It's really a fabulous phero for me at that amount, so I'm not even crushed. On that note, it makes me wonder if the pheros currently falling utterly flat for me may be too strong at just the 1x strength, but perfect at the 1/3 enhanced amount. I'll look into more of the phero-enhanced blends for additional experimentation.
  24. Belle, thanks for creating this thread! These are all great socials, and the differences are important to note. Glad it's all going in one place now. LFM ~ My number one favorite--probably the reason why I fell for LPMP, and hard. LFM is the intelligent, graceful, pretty girl. She's elegant and lovely and interesting but somewhat out of reach. On the average day when I'm choosing a phero just for whatever, it's LFM. It's middle of the road "attractive but elegant" air makes it great for various social and personal situations. On me, LFM never wears sexy--it's just straight social, feminine mystique. (Sometimes I get VIP treatment if I hit the amount juuuust right.) Popularity Potion ~ I haven't hit my stride with this one, unfortunately. There haven't been any notable experiences or hits that I could attribute to PP. It could be because I'm working with a Pheromas trial dropper and not getting the amounts right, but I'm thinking it's just PP. (I've struggled similarly with Lumina.) SS4W ~ This was my first phero purchase from LPMP! Still haven't figured this one out though, lol. From what I did notice, a handful of times, this comes off as more "attractive girl/woman" than "drop dead gorgeous babe." On me, it feels like getting hair and nails done all on the same day. A fresh, attractive enhancement, but less obvious hits than say Cougar or LFM. Cougar ~ My second favorite phero, but only because I'm loyal to LFM's daily versatility and the enhanced scents here. This is the dazzling, "Diamonds are a girl's best friend" phero!!! I bathe in Cougar Potion (haha not really) before big social or holiday events because it never disappoints to have people treat you like royalty. On New Years Eve this year, I had the best hit ever! A lesbian woman who was invited by a friend of mine joined our group for dinner, late. When she arrived, she had a visible hit during introductions--her head jerked back a little and she blinked hard before shaking her head and bit to recover and offering her hand to me. Hours and drinks later, she announced good-naturedly during a conversation, that she thought at first sight I was extremely glamorous like a First Lady and had made her feel severely under-dressed, hahaha. (Honestly, the compliments were pouring like champagne that night thanks to Cougar and a sequined mini dress! ) If LFM is the beautiful and untouchable phero, Cougar is the coquettish glamazon phero. Sometimes I wear LFM boosted scents with a trial sized wand swipe of Cougar on my neck at the same time, but often the two are such powerhouses alone it's not necessary.
