  1. Mara do you ever make salt-based scrubs? Whenever I use any brand of sugar scrub, a bunch of ants always show up to try to get in on the party. 😂
  2. Ughhhh I'm bummed because this doesn't seem to work with my skin chemistry. I think it's the currant because that note seems to go wonky on me.
  3. Bought this one blind during the sale, and I think I'm going to need to get this in a spray. Grapefruit, peach, and teakwood are some of my favorite notes, so it was a no brainer. The grapefruit is really bright for me at first before settling down while the peach comes out. The hibiscus, bamboo, tea, and teakwood create this "clean" base but not in the aquatic sense, but in a fruity, bright spring-y way if that makes sense. Really love this one, and I love Open Windows, so it's a win-win.
  4. Are there any more of the Aphrodesia solids from Valentine's? Also have PE's been reopened?

    I can smell the raspberry in the bottle, but it fades quickly on my skin to basically BBM + a tinge of almond.
  6. Wowowowowow. Got Scandalous in the sale - hope this is the right review thread for V3. The comparison I would make between Scandalous and LP Red is Scandalous is like a dry wine while LP Red is sweeter. Scandalous starts off to me with a burst of sweetness from the treacle (I think), but it's quickly balanced out by the amber and cinnamon. It's SO GOOD. I don't get as much of the sweet apricot in Scandalous as in LP Red. It's like the "older sister" to LP Red if that makes any sense at all. I haven't tried layering with OCCO Red yet but will soon. I think I'm going to grab another bott
  7. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1885393/ "DETECTION OF HUMAN PHEROMONES Based upon animal studies, the vomeronasal organ would be hypothesized to be the site of pheromone detection in humans. However, although the vomeronasal organ is found in humans it is thought to be non-functional as the vomeronasal receptor and signal transduction genes are pseudogenes in man, and the accessory olfactory neuronal connections degenerate during human foetal development. However, this need not mean that there is no method of pheromone detection in humans. Recent work suggests there may hav
  8. Studies say some pheromones can be detected by the olfactory system, so the same way we detect smells.
  9. Honey can be weird on me too, but sometimes it works out really well. There's probably a lot of different kinds of honey, so don't give up rose! I can't do SLF either, but Stacy's Lady Luck and Honeyed LP work really well on me, so I think "bright" honey is okay for me.
  10. Yes, essentially. What animals use to detect pheromones is an organ called the Vomeronasal Organ that's essentially analogous to how our nose works, but for pheromones instead of scents. We know this organ is absent in great apes and old world monkeys, so some scientists think that could mean pheromones don't have a huge rule in regulating primate behavior ("pheromone" in this sense refers to a chemical signal that is produced in an animal that affects the behavior/physiology of other animals in the same species, whether it's attracting males, evaluating reproductive status of mates, aggressi
  11. I haven't read any studies yet for pheromones on men though I can see if I can scope some out. I studied neuroscience in university and we did talk about pheromones in one of our upper major courses if you're interested in more generally knowing the hows/whys/mechanism.
  12. Those who have this in spray - did you do 100% alcohol, 90/10, 60/40?
  13. Follow up to previous post... I had worn OW the next day, and just like the day before, we ended up talking the whole day regardless of if someone was presenting or not! He asked me for a ride back to his hotel at the end of the day to wait for his flight out. When I was about to drop him off, he asked if I wanted to "hang out" more, so we ended up getting drinks and food at the hotel bar for 2 hours just talking about life. When I waffled between a handshake or a hug when it was time to go, he noticed and asked if I wanted a hug (the answer was an enthusiastic yes), and he told me to tex
