Sorcerer's Apprentice (2/67)

  1. Could I please reserve a bottle of Dari Gold and one of Dari's Rocket Powder, also?
  2. This one is just exactly what it's name suggests: a pale floral that dries down to a soft tea scent. A lovely, light, skin scent - perfect for spring.
  3. Unfortunately, papaya tends to take over the scents that it's in when I try them, and this one is no exception. Mostly papaya, and canned papaya at that. Oh well, better for the bank balance, I guess!
  4. Yummy but light, this for me is an excellent sheer summer foodie. The coconut is to the fore in the first hour or so. Not a heavy or bombastic coconut but light and creamy. It gradually softens down to a lightly spicy graham cracker crust smell that makes the loveliest edible skin scent.
  5. I didn't care much for this one when it first arrived, but I tried it randomly yesterday, and I'm so glad I did. It's ethereal and feminine, but not too sweet. I was surprised because most of the scents with wisteria that I've tried have turned almost cloyingly sweet on my skin in the first half hour. This however, remains a light and elegant aquatic scent right to the end.
  6. On my skin this is another "made-you-sniff" scent, similar in effect to Anthea. When I'm wearing Glass Slipper, I frequently catch a whiff of sweet, juicy, strawberry, but when I dive in to smell my wrist the scent retreats, like a debutante coyly retiring behind her fluttering fan: "Strawberry? Why I'm sure I don't know what you mean! My skin always smells like the softest, lightest mix of peony, vanilla and musk." A soft, ethereal skin-scent with a little bit of strawberry throw, just to reel you in.
  7. When I first tried this last year, I was disappointed that my skin seemed to eat it. It was a faint peach scent for about half an hour and then nothing. I put it aside until just recently, and I'm glad I tried it again! Now, it's a fresh peachy-maple scent with plenty of longevity, although not much throw. I think the oakmoss is what's giving it a silky-fuzzy vibe for me. Like a plush blanket or the insanely soft spot right behind a puppy's ears. Such a feel-good scent!

    A clean, sweet, sheer floral, reminiscent for me of a soap my mother had when I was young; a very expensive high-quality scented soap. It is very well-named conjuring up the soft-focus effect of light filtering through a filmy parasol. Summery and delicately clean.
  9. On my skin this starts out all sweet, light, orange blossom honey and musk, but inside of half an hour those have faded, and I'm left with a pink-sugar-and-spruce smell. A very unusual combination, and not one I would ever have come up with myself, but nonetheless very lovely and cheery; a sort of "Disney Princess" stroll through the North Woods.
  10. This has rapidly become one of my "desert island" scents. I ordered it without reading the description or reviews and I was expecting it to be a sort of fluffy, marshmallow Lavender Cupcake. Instead it's an almost addictive caramelized lavender. Not caramel-and-lavender on me, but a toothsome, caramelized, chewy, lavender candy. Not the least bit camphorous on my skin, and absolutely to-die-for!
  11. I'm going to have to agree with LexiJo - this scent reminds me of Avon's Sweet Honesty. That was my first perfume, so the scent-triggered memories for this are fantastic. This, to me, is a grown-up version: a clean, sweet, and innocent springtime perfume. I haven't seen any noticeable hits with it yet, but honestly this is so gorgeous I'll wear it even if I never get a response from the phero.
  12. What exquisite labels! Now I'm simply dying to see the notes. ALL of them look amazing, and I can't wait to try GOTBM, especially since someone said Dragonfly was similar to the original GOTBM and I love Dragonfly.

    When I first applied this, it was straight-up green tea but within half an hour I could smell what I believe is the lotus, blending in a sort of shimmery, aloof scent, exactly reminiscent of a dragonfly's wings.
  14. Beach/tropical scents aren't "me" usually, but this really is a lovely one. So sweet and summery and beautifully blended. "Luscious" is the adjective that springs to mind. It's a real mood lifter on a gray winter's day.
