  1. awesome episode! I really enjoyed hearing Mara talk about her passions and the realities of entrepreneurship. the advice I learned is very difficult to do, but sage: dont go into debt starting a business. it's hard out there!
  2. I wore this to work and said to my coworker, "Babe, you're cute. But you're slow..." I should not have called him babe or cute lol! kay Vi.. reel it in XD

    Tangy Tart

    Thing is, I don't have a current version or anything so I'll never know what it originally smelled like. But it's all good I would have never seen it available, thank you! What's the old site address? Maybe I should call or email in?

    Tangy Tart

    I am sure this has some to do with this being 8 years old, but I am surprised with how candied this smells at least from the ingredients. Tangy Tart definitely suits the name. I expected this to be on the level of freshness and brightness as Petite Baie ...maybe that's a little greener. Even like a lemon drop candy reminds me of this. ETA: 15min in and omg licorice and amber are starting to warm up. I had no idea Tangy Tart had some good solid bass notes. I almost smell sandalwood, but that's not listed in here. Whatever this smooth concoction is can put me under hypnosis and talk me

    Shady Lady

    I do not like this wet. lol But after 30 min drydown I really love the ethereal and wishy airiness. If this floral has rose geranium, I'm inclined to believe that may be what I'm not fond of Never smelled ambergris before. Can't say I can point it out in this. Wish I could know. I'm surprised I couldnt smell spice for nearly an hour. Normally things like cinnamon are definitely there, right? I love the spice and brandy here crescending very gracefully and slowly, taking over the strict floral.
  7. I feel freaking exotic and regal in this. I was watching Prince of Egypt with my 6yr old brother and felt like a beautiful Egyptian woman living in her architecture, just general imagery in the movie. I asked him what he thought of the perfume. He said he liked it, smells like our dog lol! My home banned perfume after my father went through chemotherapy. He also has sensitivities from painting cars when he was younger. My mom is very sensitive to fragrance. If I put any on, they'd make it clear I was making them uncomfortable. But I remember applying Fairy Cake: Lavender years ago

    I think milk amps and is forefront in the beginning for me generally. Maybe amber combined with it too. Drydown 4 hours later leaves mainly orchid with maybe wisp of amber or vanilla. I learned I like orchid! I'm always on the lookout for new florals I like bc they're really distinct in perfume and really makes or breaks it in terms of what mood I'll be intending to wear.

    lol! I was just about to write another review: "gahh I wish I could smell magnolia! I think I'm still scent blind to it, but I do smell a tiiiiinge of it at the end of the note. Hopefully it'll come back to me... The freshness of Fluffy is definitely there!! Which can't be attributed to any other note cept Magnolia?" This is my exact review from last year
  10. Yeah, I think so. There's something in this that has a "smoothing over" effect. It may be the androstanone? since the description states, "tempered to try to reduce feelings of jealousy that can arise when someone else is in the spotlight." It still definitely puts this beaming light on me, or makes me feel comfortable putting myself out there in social situations, but there's really not a 'Queen B' feeling for me in this. It's not egotistical in any way. If I'm being baited by meanies, I'm really not interested in engaging them. There are plenty of nicer interactions I am in the mood fo
  11. I could credit my day to better mental health or just that I've built a positive life surrounding me, got good stuff going no matter what other negativity. But I don't want to miss crediting miss Popularity Potion in Laloo just in case she had something to do with my temperance of a high intensity bicker today, to which I did not bite back. Of course, that's all high school stuff - or should be - but sometimes it's hard. There's feelings, you know? In any case, I really didn't take anything personally and moved on to what I'm over the moon about: that I'm feeling clear, positive, centered and
  12. Snow Leopard has been my go-to leather/androstenone scent. It's that feeling of a Rolls Royce (not that I've been in one lol), or luxe softness with a little whiplash at the end for Ice-queen effect. I've linked a trade thread you can get it from: here or here. I also love Seelie and have described it sort of as Ice Queenie.. another trade thread for it: here.
  13. oooph. the purposes of these potions look certain for sure! just at eye-glance there are a few I have dire needs for in my life.. I forgot that virility was very much a show-off 🤭 roosters are an apt fit! I'm so curious what it'll smell like Imma need dagger because there are a lot of jerks to cut. and 2020 is the year I'm seriously shedding skins and transforming. I foresee a lot of Snake wears. I wonder if I'll finally break out my SWS and pair it with the above.
  14. I had this for two years and did not try it out of the vial, for two reasons: I went through a phero-free 2018 as soon as New Year hit, for health reasons. I also went scent blind to marshmallow and ylang ylang from practically snortnig Sensual Harmony and somehow Fairy Cake Magnolia (doesn't have marshmallow, but maybe I feel similar about the two foodie notes). Cinnamon wasn't a note I was dying to try, because it's been done in commercial fragrance and I was in a hurry to meet new mysterious, exotic notes available at LPMP. But let's just say I have a feeli
  15. I want to make sculpture perfume bottles. for mainly oil

    artistic oil vials

  16. omg lovely. the beautiful labels really pop!
  17. I used to favor autumn scents year round. Now at the end of summer I've decided it's too hot and I need a variety of summer scents. But then it got super cold today and I'm about to head further north, so idk what I'll feel like ordering 😵
  18. Treasured Hearts would be my first choice before Open Windows. It sounds like it will instill a "nesting" vibe so maybe his daughter will see you as trustworthy and respect you for that.
  19. my first thought was Treasured Hearts. If we're only using your above options, maybe Open Windows + Leather?
  20. Hey Lochkopp Welcome! I feel like the times I reach for pheros in my life can be very telling, too lol Looking forward to your reviews!
  21. I ALWAYS wear a cover scent over pheromones, or copulins/aja. Honey by itelf can smell smutty on me, too. I try to keep honey light or pair it with another perfume note when I'm social. By myself I love smutty honey, but people are used to commercial fragrances, not oils... so I conform '-_-
  22. This phero boosted my mood on an otherwise unhappy evening I rarely wear Cougar and I wish I knew what was responsible for the lift, but I'll take it! I layered this scent over PG-17 because it's springtime and I wanted a floral, lighter version of Oud. It was a strange combo fresh, but I was right to trust my intuition; within minutes it turned perrrffect.
  23. Welcome to the forum, Sophie 🙋‍♀️ I came here for the pheros, fell in love with the scents! Looking forward to your reviews. Smart move going for Sheer Essence for your first order 😉
  24. My first scent purchase at LPMP was Sensual Harmony, non-foody vanilla. It never smelled powdery to me back then and my nose was new to artisanal scents so I steered clear of all the powdery.

    Myrrh Merlot

    I love the texture of myrrh merlot. grapes are fresh and smoooth like newly opened juice! but it's not tart or bright/sharp interesting how musk + myrrh together can be unisex ETA I like middle-wear best, when grape shares the stage with the other two notes. upon application, grape is definitely fresh lol
