Squib (1/67)

  1. Saw this is a threebie and figured I could throw in my review! It's a really lovely powder room musky floral, and the leather makes it feel very "clean" without veering into soapy. It does feel mature, a bit old fashioned but in that sort of classy, elegant older woman way. It evokes an image of using those perfume powders at a fancy old school vanity. Wet, the rose and leather are definitely strongest, but as it dries the leather floats off into the background to kind of elevate the whole experience. Elevated, but it's still wreathed by something warm. It's a very lofty sort of energy without feeling disconnected or distant. And after writing all that, I went to read the blurb... I think the effect vibes perfectly with the intention! I'll also third the comment about it being a "classy perfume" scent. When I first opened it and got a whiff, I was almost surprised! It feels like I could've smelled it in a high end department store. It's not a "me" scent, but it is very pretty.
  2. Oooh I can't wait to hear what people think of this variant! It looks amazing and I probably would've been tempted to buy a FB blind but I'm afraid of raspberry, it tends to punch me in the nose.
  3. Wow, I was just wearing cuddle bunny (2009--I've been very stingy with my bottle since it's such a favorite! which is silly, because it's permanent...) and thinking about how much of an anomaly it is compared to what I usually gravitate towards. I usually like 'rougher' fragrances with more herbal or resin notes, tobacco, honey, if I want sweet I prefer sugar over flowers... well, came to check the notes list and there's my tobacco and sugar Combo unbroken! I don't have a nose that can easily pick out individual smells, but cuddle bunny is DELICIOUS. When I've shoved my wrist into people's faces they've told me it smells "clean" which I can agree with, but that's not the place it takes me mentally, and I don't think about laundry at all which others have compared it to. There's something edible about it, even though it's not foodie in ANY way. It just smells SO GOOD! I want to eat it with my nose, maybe... the overall energy is very "soft cotton" which is, of course, the whole point and spot-on! Really lovely, but for whatever reason, not a crowd-pleaser. Maybe reads too normal-clean for people to feel compelled to comment on it?? Not that the scent is generic, but if someone walks by me smelling good and clean, I'd just assume they were freshly showered and not in need of a compliment 😄 Oh, ETA I don't really notice phero effects, but I'm chronically socially oblivious AND I usually just wear this for myself to huff, lol. Like I said, I'm stingy with it!!!
  4. Sniffing this wet was like someone throwing a pile of autumn leaves and caramel popcorn in my face--You like autumn, punk?!? YOU GOT AUTUMN! Oh god, I can't imagine a more perfect fall scent!! I'm a sucker for pumpkin scents, I loveeee frank&myrrh, I love patch, I love smoke, I'm starting to realize I love maple... it's so warm and resiny and DELICIOUS! It's just perfect. Wearing this has me feeling like I'm walking around on Halloween night, bundled up nice and warm with a hot drink. Not a deep dark scent, more like candlelight... (from a jack-o-lantern perhaps? ) I need a FB, no question. This is gonna keep me warm all fall and winter (which I really need because I'm such a weenie in the cold). LOVE IT!
  5. Wow... it's really hard to describe this one! Ever squish damp soil in your hands? Just big handfuls of soil... digging in the earth with your hands... It's not a "nature" scent, more "warm and cozy at home" actually, but it reminds me of being in nature somehow. The actual scent is creamy and not-too-sweet, the fig 'feels' kinda mossy, just in... scent texture? (what does that mean?!) I never thought I could like fig so much! After sniffing it the other day the vial got some on my hands, and I kept stopping to ask myself, 'what is that delicious smell?!' so I knew I had to test this one next. Mmm, I love LPP, it's been so long since I could enjoy any new perfumes. I have to make another order before I go back abroad
  6. Delicious! I love milk/cream scents. At first I got a lot of the pumpkin, very autumnal... fresh, but a little crispy, and kind of fluffy... after a full day, it's really soft and sweet, mostly creamy sugar with only the ghost of pumpkin, and just a bit too earthy to be edible. Maybe it's the oak moss? I'm very familiar with the rest of the list, but I've never experienced oak moss before.
  7. Ohhh, I just tried this one for the first time and I love it. I can't distinguish the scent of coffee, but I probably smell like coffee most of the time anyway so that's not surprising It's sweet and delicious, but not overwhelmingly so. I can definitely feel the sweet LP base, but the woods rough it up just the right amount, and then smooth it over again... but not too much! On me, it's very "neutral," not striking me as either masc or fem... just warm and yummy, even from first swipe. Possibly my favorite of the LP variants I've tried.
  8. Lol holy crap! I really WAS a baby! Of course I wouldn't have shared my age at the time but ahem... thanks LPMP for being good to me way back then...
  9. Haha I'm sorry I truly have no idea! To be honest I'm not sure that I would even recognize myself since my memory isn't the best. It was around the time I was a senior in high school (2009) (I was a baby, I know....) maybe through my first year of uni, which as you can expect dramatically reduced how much I could spend on 'extras' like perfume :-) I do remember being around for the introduction of phero blends, hmm... Well, I don't mind starting over. But I did want to share my well wishes! Nice to meet everyone for the first or second time
  10. Hello! I was a member of the forum several years ago. I've completely forgotten my old forum name, but I wanted to come back to say that I hope everyone is doing well! It's amazing how many active members I still recognize. I admit that it's unlikely I will be a very active poster, mostly because I'm abroad for work and find it hard to justify shipping too much from the US when I'll be shipping it all back in a few months, and all the blends I own are from around... yeowch, 2010, give or take? (still holding up beautifully, by the way, though I do make it a point to be careful with them). I'm only just now starting to seriously run low, though I wear them all the time, so I'm eyeing the site again... making future purchase plans, you know, now that I'll be able to justify it to my bank account...... I probably won't be able to do much aside from gush with jealousy over all the lovely blends coming out every month until I'm home. But I'll certainly enjoy reading all the reviews :^) Today, I'm trusting the New Year to ye olde Plenty. Here's to an abundant year for all of us
