  1. Magnolia is the first impression. Floral, fruity, and really pretty. It's a nice spring scent. Sarong feels like when everything is blooming and the sun is shining, but it's not hot, yet. There's a lushness to it. The juiciness keeps it from being too floral or too coconutty. It fades to a very quiet, not quite powdery floral that's mostly magnolia and coconut with a little bit of sandalwood underneath. It fades really quickly on me, which is the only drawback.
  2. There's a whiff in the beginning that almost reads as chocolate, but I'm not sure where that's coming from. Toujours Belle is thick and syrupy in a dark way, like molasses. This is sweeter than I anticipated, and the currant isn't as bright, but, by God, is it gorgeous. It's heavy, but not loud. It's languid and sensual. Thick and viscous. Not a daytime perfume. I feel sleepy and lazy wearing it, in a good way. Like the cat who ate the canary. After a while, the amber starts to warm it up and the currant comes out a bit more. It has aged so beautifully that I bought a second bottle.
  3. Wet, it is milk chocolate with the barest hint of the orange and blossoms reading floral. As it begins to dry down, they come out more along with the amber. The chocolate becomes more of a foundational note. There is a powderiness that makes it seem cottony. Within half an hour it is mostly amber, orange blossom, and myrrh. Chocolate always seems to amplify amber on me. It develops into a dry powderiness that is still kind of floral (that isn't the exact right word, but it's what I'll go with) with the chocolate mostly appearing as a light sweetness in the background. I don't really get any o
  4. When wet, the cops are a little more obvious with this one over the others, so it needs a bit more care. It starts out sweet and candy like, then it becomes more buttery. The dry down is really subtle and not too sweet. Delicious. Here's where I'm going to come out of left field a little bit: I know guys sometimes wear a bit of cops to attract women. I think the butterscotch scent is unisex enough that, surprisingly, a guy could wear a smidge of this (or however much they wear) layered under another fragrance.
  5. Garland Latte is very spicy, with the coffee giving it some darkness. The spiciness is a sweet kind reminiscent of holiday baking. I also get a bit of smokiness, but I'm not sure where it's coming from. About 25 minutes after application, there is a sweet custard-iness that must be the eggnog. The spice eventually calms down and becomes more balanced with the other notes. The long, long drydown smells kind of like a pumpkin latte. The coffee is never a prominent note, though, but is always kind of hanging out in the background.
  6. Would it be possible to get a photo of the Frogs fabric?
  7. Bare Trap, LOL. I kind of want it just for the name alone. I cannot wait to get my hands on the candied apple LP! I'm really curious about the notes on some of these, especially Blue Fyre, The Stag, Rum Woody, Weenie Roast, and, of course, Bare Trap.
  8. A really unusual scent, and I mean that in the best way possible. When I first put it on the apple and chocolate are fighting for dominance, with the chocolate in a slight lead. The raspberry very occasionally peeks out. I'd describe it as fruity and chocolatey, but not red. It's sweet, but not too sweet. The chocolate isn't dry at all, but neither is it too sweet. The long, long, long drydown is sweetness and amber. Amber sometimes goes sharp on me, but not here.
  9. Baharat is spicy with a hint of something fresh underneath. It's not a holiday cooking kind of spice, more of a dry spice, but without being dry. I don't know if that makes any sense, lol. It's a soft spiciness. I'm not really a spice person, but I cannot stop sniffing this. There's a softness to it in general. I'm wondering if that impression is coming from the cotton, because for reason smelling this makes me thinks of lots of bolts of brightly colored fabric in an open market. In the crook of my elbows, it retains more of an herbal aspect. The long dry down turns to a slightly more masculin
  10. Are there going to be 'Weenies this year? I was just wondering because I'm thinking of ordering a couple of masks, but if there will be new releases in the next month or so, I will wait. Don't want to cost you extra paypal fees and shipping costs if I can help it. Not sure if this question is too soon. Hope you've had a chance for a breather after the sale.
  11. Thanks for the response. I'll wear some more masculine scents, but others are just too manly for me. Think I might get a trial of this and see how it goes.
  12. Is this one really masculine, or does it have the potential to be more unisex?
  13. I have a running wish list! It is on my computer. At home. Where I am not. 😭 Trying to remember what I want/don't have yet.
  14. Lol, literally my first note to myself said, "More perfumey than usual, but not in a bad way." So, more perfumey than usual, but not in a bad way. This is definitely not a daytime scent. It's rich, dark and sensual. If this was unphero'd, my first instinct would have been to pair it with Sexpionage or BI, but I understand why Leather was chosen. I'm not sure if it's the phero or the scent (probably both), but this has a sense of power. The woman who wears this is very collected. Never harried. I'mreminded of when a character in a movie is the head of an illegal organ
  15. This one reacts so oddly with my chemistry and ends up being all over the place. I have no idea what to think. It starts off with a nice, fun, fruity sweetness. The milk/cream/butter combo often (not always, but often) does this weird thing with my skin chemistry where it ends up smelling like cigarettes. It started doing that, but not to the full extent it sometimes does. The sweetness was still going on, though. So up close, it was very sort of cigarette-ish. At a middle distance, though, it read as sweetly smoky. But, then, every time I moved, I got fruit! What you doing, body
  16. Huh. In my reaction notes, I kept describing this as floral. Interesting that he and I read it that way, but you don't. I wonder why that is. I found this very oceany, but also floral (in a very plant like way.) On me, it was more feminine than straight up unisex. It's like sitting on a restaurant patio somewhere in the tropics. The restaurant is near the ocean. Not directly on it, but close enough to catch the breeze. You're right at the edge of the patio, next to planters full of tropical flowers, so every time the breeze blows, it rustles the plants, mingling in their scent wit
  17. This starts off very orange on me, but with a layer of duskiness to it. (Auto correct changed that so many times. No, I do not mean dusk kindness or dust lines. 😛 ) The citrus fades quickly from my wrists, but lasts longer in the crook of my elbows. What's left after the citrus is gone us a quiet, very unisex light scent with an underpinning of freshness.
  18. Haru is a pretty floral. Subtle and delicate. It almost becomes powdery, but never quite reaches there. I would say Haru is sheer, but not clear, though I'm not sure that will make sense to anyone other than me. As it dries down, it becomes a touch (really, just a touch) sweeter and the tea becomes more noticeable. Haru is light and feminine, yet still serious. At first, I wasn't sure Lace was really a match, but after a while, I could see how they vibed. In this mixture, Lace didn't give me that heady, giddiness that it usually does in the first hour, but also didn't give me th
  19. After reading the description of Sweet Joyce, I was wary because I thought it was going to be CAAAAAAAAAKE. I ended up getting it as part of a threebie package. I was pleased to discover that while it was cake, it wasn't CAAAAAAAAAKE. I think I was mostly afraid of it being far too sweet in a cloying, sickening, tooth achingly way. I needn't have feared, though. It's a controlled sweetness that isn't overpowering. Wet, it is all cake (but not CAAAAAAAAAKE.) As it dries down, the spices develop. It's very reminiscent of a coffee cake. To me, it's a bit like Warm and Toasty, but a
  20. This is a really pretty floral with a background of green and some sweetness. It reminds me of being at a hotel in Hawaii and walking along the pathways surrounded by tropical flowers.
  21. I'm not a huge fan of the regular LP#9; it just doesn't work that well on me. So I was surprised by how much I liked this variant. I find it to be not quite as harsh as the regular one. The tea and spices take the edge off and give it more complexity. I would say this is leaning on the masculine side of unisex, but not too far over. Easily wearable for a woman.
