  1. Velvet and Steel is one of my top 3 LP favorites. (It actually competes with Ebil-ish 2014 for the #1 spot.) So imagine my surprise when I saw that Tropical Musk has a wonderfully similar scent at Velvet & Steel. I agree with Wendylynne and hearts in that it has a hint more coconut than V&S. It's a thick, rich coconut on me, and it blends beautifully with the bamboo. It's not as green as V&S, but I think that makes me like Tropical Musk even more. This is the perfect tropical scent without being too on par with suntan oil. It's very grown and sexy tropical.
  2. Gloria is calling me like a moth to a flame. Luving that label!
  3. I've never tried Tranquility Potion, and usually I'm not one to want a mellow effect. (I'm a recovering energy drink addict.) But this one surprisingly appeals to me. I'm about to lie down now and yup, I'm reaching for my little trial vial. Curious to see what I'll feel like in the morning after a full night with Beautiful Dreamer.
  4. I'm usually not a fan of lavender as it goes all medicinal on my skin. But this past Saturday the red river was flowing, and since I'd never tried BB, I figured this would be an excellent time to try it. This is the first lavender scent that I've immediately fallen in love with. It's sweet and thick and rich, riding on a creamy vanilla cloud. I actually think it's kinda sexy. I only had a swipe on my hand and I laid in the bed with that magical hand close to my nose. I was asleep with drool on the pillow in 5 minutes! And that's with no pain killers, so Balm Bomb appears to be sedative to me. The good thing is when I woke up an hour later, I felt like a million bucks. I was relaxed and happy as a mofo even though I was still crampy. So for beating my period blues, Beautiful Dreamer gets 4 tampons up and a FB purchase.
  5. I wore this one yesterday (2 sprays to the neck) and today (3 sprays to the neck). Before I offer my review, lemme just say that sweet spot testing is my new mantra. At 2 sprays I sat down in front of the computer and got so much shit done, it was almost unbelievable. I'm talking MAJOR focus power here. I definitely got a creative boost too. (This is something I desperately needed.) As far as energy, it was like perking up after finding $200 in an old jacket pocket. I had some butterflies going and a bit of smiley, confident excitement. Confident is a good word here... kind of like the 'determination' that halo mentioned. I totally get that vibe too. For me it's not really a physical boost as much as it is a mental strengthener -- and that's great for me. I'm a writer, so anything that keeps me in the zone without boosting my heart rate is a-ok in my book. Today when I tried 3 sprays I didn't feel the same smiley confidence. I could feel something, but I believe it was more like a crash. The focus power I'd felt yesterday wasn't there at all. If anything I felt a bit draggy. So yeah... tomorrow I'll be sticking with 2 sprays. I'll report back again, but so far this is FB material.
  6. Great review androstenol! I'm seriously looking forward to trying Mega Watt now. The whole focus/creativity angle is perfect for me. I love self effects like these. And how awesome that you see auras... even if it is on occasion. I did readings for many years, but I never saw auras visually.
  7. OMG Cougarrifc... I thought it was just me with the TMI boo-hooing! So a few weeks ago I tried three sprays of TMI... one to the neck... one to the back of the neck and another to the back of my hands and smooshed. I felt good, kinda happy-go-lucky. Went to a Fridays to get some potato skins. All of the bartenders were SUPER attentive to me. I've been to this Friday's on a few occasions and it was slightly over-the-top how nice they were. That was definitely a TMI hit. Once I got home though, the 'shit-hit-the-fan' switch immediately came on. My father passed away last month and it was like every awful feeling in the world came pouring out of my heart. I mean it was a deeply emotional tear fest... I cried like you wouldn't believe. And while I was crying it hit me that TMI might have something to do with this, because I was happy, happy, joy, joy just minutes before. I immediately got in the shower and washed it off. The truly hilarious part is, when I got out the shower I was perfectly fine. I mean fine like nothing had happened... sat down and ate my potato skins. I will DEFINITELY be more selective about my TMI adventures. Perhaps I had too much wafting close to my nose with it being on my neck and the backs of my hands. Plus I did have a really strong margarita to boot. I should have heeded the warning about alcohol and TMI... the struggle is real!
  8. Uuuugh... I'm so mad that I missed this one. I love Gamboge and I'm a pink fanatic. Alas I can only imagine how divine this must smell. I'm with phergineer... might have to get my own PE!
  9. I have White and Pink. I wear White a lot, but I think the Pink had travel shock when I first got it a few weeks ago, and it smelled really 'ewwwwww!!!!' to me. Just went into my LP stash box and pulled out the Pink again... OMFG! It smells 10,000% better since it settled. Doesn't even resemble what I initially whiffed when it arrived in my mailbox. Seriously! It's luscious and sweet, just the way I like it. I should've known better. I have several LP scents that have beautifully morphed like that after a week or so. Glad I read this thread... feels like I just got a new order!
  10. I wore Dominance for a second time yesterday. The inner self boost is really, really nice. Still made me feel comfortable with me, which is something I needed right now. At Walmart the cashier greeted me (and only me) with a great big "Good Morning!" Full eye contact and everything. She hadn't greeted any of the other customers that way, so I assume it was the Dom at work. I still need more testing around women. Got home and was carrying the groceries up the stairs to my apartment. I passed one of my guy neighbors on the stairs and said, "Good morning!" Later that afternoon I went to check the mail and that same neighbor had his door open (presumably to get some air). When I got back upstairs he came out of his apartment and started talking to me. We'd never really spoken beyond a passing 'hello' and he apparently wanted to get to know me more. We ended up talking for a good 25 minutes. And since this is Miami and the heat is still really real, I know Dom was jumping off my warm skin and into his nostrils. Three different times he told me if I needed anything -- ANYTHING -- just to call or knock on his door. And yeah, he was a bit flirty with me towards the end of the convo. But the offer of assistance reminded me of my escapades at the laundry the day before. (See that post in this thread.) Dom seems to make men want to help me. This is my official 'chivalry is not dead' potion and I LOVE it. Still more testing to come, but so far I feel like I could get a lot of favors done with this blend on.
  11. Vladmyra... I'm a very easy going, fun loving person. I tend to make friends with all kinds of people -- the Gemini in me. But in general, I'm not a domineering personality. That's the main reason why I didn't think Dominance would have a significant role in my arsenal. But now that I've tried it, I realize that it doesn't change me. It just amps up the confident parts of me. It makes me feel even more comfortable and awesome in my own skin. And it feels like the natural me, only better. It's not as though I spray it on and turn into insta-bitch. I don't want to go kick anybody's ass or anything. To me, this is comfortable confidence -- GirlFriday style. La Femme Mystere does this too, but Dom does it more so for me. Dom makes me feel like I can handle whatever comes my way. My thought (for those of you who aren't naturally domineering) is that it will boost the confident parts within you.
  12. I debated about buying Dom. I had something like 15-16 bottles in my cart, and Dom was at the bottom of the list. (Why yes... I did go batshit bananas this month.) Dom was one of those "Aw, what the hell!" type purchases. I figured it would be good for the gym, and that was my initial goal this morning. First spray to the chest -- nothing. Second spray to the back of the wrists -- nothing. Third spray to the neck -- ooooohhhh yeah! Sweet spot target found. In my mind, I'm swinging my head around like Axl Rose. I'm every woman. Feeling like I could get frisky on the kitchen counter. And yeah... it did make me feel taller. (I'm 5'4") But since this is Thursday morning, and there's no BoyFriday on the horizon, I gathered up all of my shit and headed to the laundry. Now mind you, nothing EVER happens at the this wash house. People aren't real chatty here, and mornings are usually pretty empty anyway. Needless to say, I wasn't expecting any miracles. There was a mechanic there working on a few of the washers. I approached him and asked if I could use the washers next to him. He told me I could, but I decided to use some of the washers in an aisle over. When he realized I wasn't in his aisle anymore, he peered up over the washers and said, "Oh I'm sorry, you could have used those." To which I replied, "Oh, no big deal. It's okay!" Over the next 30 minutes he and I locked eyes around 3-4 more times. He even found a sock I dropped on the way from the dryer and brought it over to me. Seemed a little 'active' for a normally sleepy laundry establishment. I thought it might've even been a fluke. And then... During my stare-fest with the mechanic, a guy comes in to do his laundry. He puts his clothes into the washer in my aisle... directly behind me, in fact. Since I was already a bit warm, I knew he was catching my Dom scent. He ended up standing directly next to my washer, even though it was completely empty in this place. I had to say 'excuse me' just to get to my clothes. Okay so he puts his clothes in the dryer and when he's done, he walks over to me and says, "I have 12 minutes left on my dryer... would you like to use it?" Considering the mechanic went out of his way to bring me my wayward sock, the whole "Use my dryer" spiel immediately reeked of Dom's influence. Both men wanted to do stuff for me. I have had some nice hits with LFM and even Cougar, but these are probably the most blatantly obvious so far. They seem very congruent with Dom's mission, but in a very sweet way. This is t I'm putting all other tests on hold until I give Dom a go over these next few days. Will definitely report back!
  13. @livin10 Sorry about your eye, but at least you got lots of TLC. And funny you should mention your experience with the eye doctor. My aunt was in town for my dads funeral (I talked about him a few posts up when he was still alive). Somewhere between New York and the shuttle to my place, she caught pink eye and I had to take her to an urgent care facility. Since I had been wearing the hell out of LFM, I told her to put a couple of sprays on. Ironically she also got some major VIP coddling from the staff and the doctor. She told me she couldn't believe how nice they were. When she went to fill her prescription, same type of attitude from the pharmacist. He actually came from behind the counter 3x to tell her that her eye drops were being brought in from another store, and then to tell her that they were almost there. And it was crowded in there! The funny thing is, she didn't have her top dentures in! I've been around this aunt enough to know that LFM was definitely at work here. LFM... good for work environments, doctors appointments and days when you feel like ditching your dentures.
  14. I wore 3 sprays of UN Cougar yesterday to the mall and all I've gotta say is -- Whoa nelly... this stuff ain't called Cougar by accident! Needed a strapless bra from Victoria's Secret and wandered over to the perfume section. A guy - probably a good 15 years my junior - asks if I need some help. I tell him that I'm just looking. He asks which scent do I like and then he tells me his favorite. To make a long story short he was hitting on me the whole time -- HEAVILY, might I add. At the end of the conversation he says, "So when can I see you again?" To which I replied, "Maybe later!" (wink-wink). I didn't give him my number, because my 12 year old came wandering in and I don't do the number exchange thing with her around. Daughter and I went to the movies to see Dracula Untold. Two seats over a couple of 20-something year old guys come and sit down. The one sitting closest to me stared constantly. The funny thing is, I got hot in the theater and I could smell the UN Cougar jumping off my skin so I'm pretty sure he caught my scent. As far as the selfies... I got a serious boost of energy when I sprayed it on. It was like sleepy... NOT sleepy in 2.5 seconds. Ironically I felt a bit less confident than when I wear SS4W or LFM. I kept looking at my legs when I walked past mirrors. Even still, the hits from the younger guys in particular made me give UN Cougar 4 thumbs up.
  15. Normally I gravitate towards sweet foody and floral scents, but I've thrown them all to the curb since I've gotten EBIL-ish last week. This is one hella sexy vanilla, with hints of spice, and a long lasting base of musk. The musk isn't heavy and dark. To me it offers a bit of sweetness that offsets the chai spice beautifully. All week I've been slathering Ebil-ish onto the back of my hands and huffing like a mad woman all day. It's definitely one of the longer lasting scents I've tried so far. I'm stocking up today. @androstenol... I agree that a LFM boost would work magic with Ebil-ish.
