  1. Ha! That gave me a good chuckle. I know exactly what she's referencing. That's a really great movie, I recommend it, too.
  2. This one was crisp and light in the vial. On the skin it wasn't bad, but it's not a scent I see myself wearing often. It does put me in mind of a floral/potpourri type of autumn leaves scent, which I actually like. If I had more occasion to wear it (feels like something to wear to a daytime autumn-themed party), I would absolutely go full vial, but I just couldn't think of an occasion where this one would make sense for me to have more than a trial or two at hand. On the other hand, it might work on Mr. Crash if I can ever get him to start wearing the stuff I already got him.
  3. I like this a lot more than the older version I have a sample of from somewhere (2015, I think?). It's not as in your face. This one is more spicy, resinous, and delicious, like some kind of chewy cinnamon candy. Very nice, very huffable! ❤️

    EBIL-ish! 2018

    I adore this scent. In the vial, it's a dark, dirty vanilla whispering about doing bad things in the dark.... and on the skin, it delivers on those whispered promises. The musk accent is what I think makes this deliciously decadent vanilla so intriguing on the skin. I loooooove this, and I'm so glad I got an FB unsniffed! Great staying power, and absolutely worth a good slather when you want to turn some heads.

    In the vial, this one is OH MY GOD YUM! The perfect sweet vanilla pumpkin! At first, the oatmeal is really obnoxious on first application on my skin, but it becomes DELICIOUS after dry down, like a spicy pumpkin treat! Completely different than what I get in the vial, but lovely, and a nice occasional alternative to Black or White Velvet Pumpkin (both scents I also adore). It lasted a good long while, too. I really liked this one a lot.
  6. This is the first time (to my recollection) that I've tried a scent with an earth note, and I have to say I am liking it a lot more than I expected. It's funny, but the way the dragon's blood, patch and myrrh combines with the pumpkin puts me more in mind of richly spiced apples than pumpkins. There's a bit of a wicked edge to it... more like Snow White's poisoned apple than a sweet treat. It's really good, and definitely different. It feels like it's perfect for a late day or night time autumnal event or party.
  7. I never tried Allumette, so I can't make a comparison, but I love the dark vanilla smokiness of this one. The smoke element is really forward on me, but (at least to my nose) that's what makes it different and more compelling.
  8. This is so lovely! I am so glad I took a chance on a bottle of this one unsniffed. None of the notes are singularly overpowering, and the vanilla, tonka/oud, and licorice all come together in a soft, warm, delicious blend that just makes me want to curl up under some comfy covers and roll around enjoying it for a while. I will say I detect the licorice more than the other notes, but it's not sweet or candy like. The way the vanilla and tonka come together almost makes me think of some kind of lightly sweetened puff pastry. It's funny, and a little bit strange, but even though they're nothing alike for some reason it puts me in mind of the guava pastries I used to get at Porto's Bakery back in California. Overall, I think this is a delight and I'm really glad to have it in my LP collection. I only hope there will be a rebrew at some point, because given how much I like it and how much the mister did, I'm going to be wearing this one a lot!
  9. Man, this sounds right up my alley. *stalks trades for it*

    @Vicki Lee OMG I know! I was hesitant to try some of the pheros because they just didn't sound that useful, or the name made it sound like something I didn't really need, but they turned out to be incredible under the right circumstances. Even though I've had a bunch of the blends for months, I'm still learning and feeling out how some of them work for me, but I've gotten so much valuable insight off the forum reviews and journal posts here that I'm sure that saved me a lot of time and experimenting (and wasted pheros/potential ODs)!
  11. @Vicki Lee, yeah, I understand. I hope by the time you can do it without impacting your bank account too heavily you're able to get your hands on some Ebil-ish, then! And I am going to plan to grab some Honeyed LP in oil soon-ish.

    @Vicki Lee ....are you me?
  13. @Vicki Lee I've been trying to limit myself to one order a month. One or two FBs from the stuff I've tried that I know I can and will wear often, and a few samples each order. This way I don't go TOO crazy. That said, I like this one so much I just may order another bottle of it in my next batch of purchases before it disappears. It's just too good! Super excited my 'Weenies order shipped today, too! Eeeee, I can't wait to get my grabby hands on Ebil-ish and try out all of the new scents in the sampler!
  14. I'm not sure if my sample is from 2015 or the earlier version, but in the vial the alcohol had a really astringent scent that was pretty harsh to my nose. I put off trying it for a little while because of that, and because I'm not usually a rose person, but as with a lot of things here at LP, I wasn't going to let a little thing like my preconceived notions of what scents are "right" for me in other perfumes stop me from trying one of Mara's creations. That said, unfortunately this one is not for me. Rather than bringing out my inner Goth, it feels like it's for a far more sophisticated lady than someone with my jeans-and-T-shirts style. It's beautiful -- brings to mind a tall, beautiful, velvet-and-lace clad woman in some Edwardian castle sipping rich red wine and leafing through dusty tomes by candlelight -- but that's not congruent with my personality. Still... I'll save this for a day when I have something special to wear it to, though I'm not quite sure what that occasion will be just yet.

    @Vicki Lee Me too! I have it on my "to buy" list down the road. I feel like such a dork, I have a prioritized list of what scents to get next!

    It's funny to me, in the bottle I mostly got a maraschino cherry scent, and on the skin, I mostly get a dark chocolate with a hint of cherry and honeycomb scent. Not musky, not sugary, not lemony--just a dark, decadent, chocolate covered cherry that I just want to nom on. I don't get any of the other notes at all, but that's just fine. It's still a delight, and I'm bummed I only had enough left in my sample (I think it might have been from a trade?) for one application. The mister really loved this one on me, too!
  17. Mine still haven't shipped yet. *impatient fidgeting* Looking forward to seeing everyone's reviews, though!
  18. Ahhhhh, I hope you get it soon and love it as much as I do!!!
  19. When I got the bottle, I absolutely could not wait to try it. I spritzed myself minutes after I opened the package, and at the time, the honey was soooo sweet and prominent, and it smelled fantastic on my skin. It evolved from sweet and dessert-like to sweet and sexy as hell. Lasted well into the next day until I showered it off, too. Fast forward a few days. It's calmed down a bit. I put some on today to take it for a test drive out of the house, so to speak. Let's just say I don't think it was necessary for three guys to scramble all over themselves to replace my windshield wipers for me. Gotcha! I really love this one and can see myself reaching for it often.
  20. I feel a bit strange for absolutely loving this. I can see where people are getting the (hospital-like?) basement vibes. To me, the scent embodies something more like a gypsy tent, thick with some kind of exotic musky incense and strange potions as spirits are invoked in a secret late night autumnal ceremony. It definitely gives me that dark and slightly wicked vibe, of something not of this world creeping in the shadows just beyond the reach of our senses, leaving little trace behind but perhaps the scent of Ectoplasm. Heh. There's really something magical about it, too. I'm very intrigued, and I'm most likely going to be wearing this one again near the end of October to see what ghosts and ghoulies it might inspire to come closer...
  21. As I wrote to myself in my own notes: This scent is Nightmare Before Christmas in scent form, and no one can convince me otherwise! Seriously though, I love it. It turns into a smooth, velvety, delicious pumpkin treat with a side of pumpkin spice coffee, just waiting to be nommed up. The perfect autumn delight!
  22. Ahhhh, I was SO excited to see the new scents drop! Immediately grabbed an FB of Ebil-ish and a full sampler set. I am thrilled to have the chance to try them all! I loooooove Black Velvet Pumpkin! Grabbed that one and White Velvet Pumpkin during the last sale. That reminds me, I should pull them out and use them more, because it's absolutely the right time of year for them both!
  23. Yeah, I am so glad I got it! I think it's one of those those things I never knew I needed until I discovered it, ha!
