  1. I personally did not detect any cinnamon whatsoever ! Also, to update...the long drydown of this scent pushed it to the top ( so far ) of my list with this collection ! It morphed into a vanilla sugar type scent & it lasted crazy long ! This will 100% be a full bottle for me. Probably Friday, when I get paid.

    This was a FB purchase, because from Body Paint to Bare Trap, when LPMP comes out with a gourmand lavender ? They are always a winner to me ! This was no exception. I wore this yesterday, pairing it with OCCO Lavender Buttercream & a spray of UN Gotcha. It is beautiful ! Perfect companion for OCCO Lavender...it actually sort of smells like it, to me ? Not completely, because the OCCO has aged & they are not the same notes completely, of course, but it is very reminiscent of it. It lasted a long time on my skin, too.
  3. Wearing this today & this is beyond delicious smelling ! I actually cannot detect a lot of banana in this ! In the vial, I can, not strong, but I can tell that it's there. On my skin, I think that it's serving to add creaminess because this scent is creamy - dreamy to the max. It smells like the creamiest, most beautiful vanilla, with a bit of coconut. I can't really tell if there isn't a lot of coconut in this, or if I'm not picking up a lot because of the extreme creaminess going on here. Either way, this is a stunningly gorgeous scent. This may be a FB in the future.

    I'm sure you'll both love it ! And it just gets prettier as the day goes on ! Just beautiful, soft, & so summery. Good choice going FB ! I wish that I did, lol.

    Okay, so I got my package this morning & excitedly tore into it. Soooooo many beautiful scents, it was hard to choose which to slather first ! Yes, I am aware of travel shock, but I can never wait, so I really don't even attempt to anymore. This is the scent that I finally decided on, & OMG is this GORGEOUS !!!!! I love this every bit as much as Buttercream Peach ! It actually reminded me a bit of that one at first. It starts as the juiciest, freshest, sweetest peach, with the honey, vanilla, & sugar in the background. As it dried down, the vanilla & the most beautiful musk come forward. This might be one of my faves ever, & I'm talking right off the bat, travel shock be damned. This will be a FB for me when I get paid next.
  6. Already placed my order & these all look SO amazing, it was super difficult to narrow down ordering just 2 FB's ( for now, lol ) & only trials of some others. I almost screamed with excitement when I saw that GoGo was a gourmand lavender. And another almond / cocoa butter blend ? And a pineapple blue raspberry ? These sound so beautiful, cannot wait to get them. I kinda dig the thought of the sale being pushed to the Autumn releases. More time to save !
  7. I got a trial of this back when I ordered some Weenies, I think ? Put it on once & forgot about it, I can't even really remember what my initial thoughts were, other than " nice "....but I broke this out today, & I'm loving this ! It's about as bright & joyful as you can get. Juicy mango & grapefruit, & my favorite part is the tease of coconut in the background, you can tell it's there, but just barely. I kept thinking " Does this have coconut ? It has to " so I came here to look up the notes. To me, the coconut smells very ' coconut oil ' which is a good thing. I may have to spring for a fb next order, if there's any left. This just screams summer.
  8. This sums up my experience with this scent, too ! I couldn't describe it better. I've never tried the previous versions, only the recent variant, Odalesque, which I absolutely adore. This is nothing like that, & also nothing like what I expected, but that being said, I do really, really like this. When I roll it on, I get deep, rich honey & caramel ( I know that there is no caramel in it, but that's what I get from it for some reason ) but as soon as it dries down, it's that pretty, sexy honey / sandalwood that Eve described. I slathered this one maybe an hour ago, so I'll update if the long drydown is very different. I feel like with age, this will get much richer. I should also note that my bottle is virgin, because I have a few different pheros in mind for this & wanted more options as far as that goes, so mine could smell different because of that, I suppose ? Something about this drydown also really reminds me of the vanilla - honey LAM. So far, I'm liking this a lot, & cannot wait to see how it ages.
  9. I wasn't around when this was a thing before, so I can't compare it to the previous versions, but if they were anything like this, I 100% understand all of the raves ! This is GORGEOUS 🥰 I slathered this one right away when I opened my package yesterday ( I know, I know...travel shock - but my impatience always wins out ) & this is definitely high up on the list of the LP variants that I've tried so far. I get a lot of honey soaked grapefruit, & while cocoa butter usually pulls super rich chocolate on me ( which I love ), it serves as a creamy background here, no cocoa smell from it in this, but it's so beautiful & unique. Then of course, that beautiful LP base. And this was first day, travel shock, etc, so I can't even imagine how gorgeous this will age ! As far as Charisma, I love it in Raspberry Chiffon, & I love it in here. It's nice having a new vehicle for Charisma. I went full bottle on this, due to the raves, & I'm so glad that I did ! In fact, I may eventually toss a back up bottle in sometime. I have a feeling this is going to be one of my warm weather go to's, because this scent + this phero ? Definitely a spring / summer happiness in a bottle scent.
  10. Already made a small ( for now 😛 ) order ! SO excited that I not only get to finally try Odalisque, but that you gave us the option of un - pheroed, THANK YOU ! This is the first time that I ever chose that option, because as much as I adore BI, I would like to switch between LFM, Classy Dame, & possibly Gotcha, if it vibes with it. Also decided to go FB on LP Gold because of all of the raves. Super excited for these !!
  11. AHHHH, I * finally * get to try Odalisque ?! And cannot wait to see what Beach Baby is going to be made up of ! Loving this scandal / breaking news theme like mad 🥰 It's been a super stressful day & this definitely made it better
  12. HUGE second for the Wild Cherry beg. Also digging the virgin Odalesque idea.
  13. This one is a gorgeous scent ! It smells very strongly of lavender at first, but as after it settles for a bit, the sweet marshmallow comes through, & it's just soft & luscious ! My son is the one who used this first, lol. He wanted his bed misted in this. This one also has my favorite charm of the two that I got...don't get me wrong, I love the rose quartz charm too, it's beautiful....but this one is so dainty, more my style, & purple is my fave color, so it's more my jam, lol. I love these sprays !
  14. I absolutely LOVE this ! I used it as a mask refresher, for me & my son's....and spritzed some on my clothes. The scent is as yummy as any of Mara's pink / cakey scents, & for me, personally ? Something about it reminds me of a light version of Double O ? Just my perception. This leaves a beautiful, soft veil of scent, & it lasts a long time ! I misted some on my shirt around 2;30 today, & my shirt still has that light aura of pinky deliciousness, even right now. I also love how these spray - Just a gorgeous, perfect mist. I love the charms, too ! I kinda hope that Mara makes this a thing from now on, because I feel like these would be PERFECT during summer, on those hot, sticky days where regular perfumes just feel too heavy, or maybe for work, since these are noticeable, yet very light. I can see these not bothering people who are usually sensitive to perfumes.
  15. This is beyond delicious, WOW ! I'm so torn on this, because I want a full bottle SO bad, but I feel like, when can I really wear this when Fall is over ? I know that you can wear them whenever you want, but I can only do Fall scents in cooler weather & unlike Odalesque, which feels ' year round ' to me, Bare Trap is very Autumn...that being said, I feel like I'll cave in the end & this will be an exception that I'll be rocking all year, not caring how out of place I smell 🤣 This is very spicy pumpkin on me, with a background of the most luscious bakery vanilla, & as it dries down, the lavender makes her presence known. It sounds like such a weird combination, but I think that it ties together beautifully. I get the same " different scent close up " effect that some of you are getting, I thought that I was losing my mind until I read these reviews 🤣 On me, I smell that amazingly delicious bakery vanilla with just the smallest hints of spice & lavender from afar, & the strong, spicy pumpkin up close. As far as BI, I've only worn this inside, but the main thing that I notice with this phero is the energy boost, which I can certainly use lately, lol. It also just seems to put me in a pleasant, content mood. This is a winner for sure.
  16. This is GORGEOUS !!! Not at all what I expected, but better, even, & with Mara's perfumes, the bar is always heaven high, so that is saying a lot, lol. I never tried Odalisque ( still salty with myself for that one ) & expected this to be very gourmand, but it's not, which is very okay, because whatever this is, I looove. To me, the musk / cocoa butter / vanilla / almond is dominant. The smoothness of the cocoa butter with the sexiness of the musk is super unique & just beautiful. I agree with the poster who said that the almond gives this a lotion like quality. To me, this doesn't smell like a perfume, it reads as a very high end lotion or body oil. I couldn't wait until I could afford a full bottle ( yesterday, YAY ) ....this is up there with my favorite potions for sure.
  17. Well, my credit is card is toast, I can tell that without even seeing notes, lol. Love Potion Candied Apple ??? 😍 I never got to try Odalisque ( or LFN, for that matter ) so I'm looking crazy forward to seeing the notes in the variation & possibly scoring some of that. Like everyone already said, the labels are nothing short of stunning....as usual ! Cannot wait to see the notes of these !
  18. LP Pink has the same effect on me ! It's deliciously scented happy juice, especially paired with Lace & some DHEAS. It also goes great with Topper, Cougar, Open Windows...so many pheros, & it pairs beautifully with almost every OCCO that I have too...OCCO Pink ( of course, lol ) OCCO White, Lavender Buttercream, Orange Droolicious, BMM, OCCO Ambrosia....so many options with Pink 🥰
  19. That sounds gorgeous !! I've never even tried that one & I'll still second this plea, lol. I tend to really love the different versions of LP, & this sounds exquisite.
  20. I'm still loving Balm Bomb...I just slathered some on a few minutes ago, actually. I've been getting consistent hits with this from a very handsome male. It's my cat, but still 🤣 Seriously, he loves this ! I remember that he seemed to like it months back, & thought " Okay, you're losing it now, he's a CAT " lol. But then I saw that Mara put a pet bonding phero out recently & thought, interesting. Anyway, I was having my usual trouble sleeping the other night, so I slathered on some BB. My cat was on my bed, near his favorite window ( well...his favorite window in my room, anyway ) & as soon as I laid down, he came over & plopped his furry butt right beside me, purring away & nudging my hand for some pets. I obliged him for a bit, then turned to my other side, & he walks literally over me, & plops his orange behind on the side that I switched to, purring away. So, I can now safely say that Balm Bomb had my kitty's seal of approval. Not sure if it's the phero, the scent or both. He seems to be more affectionate when I wear Red Lace too, LP Pink, with or without a phero, & seems to like when I wear LFM, too. But none of these quite as much as BB. Christ, re - reading this, I sound like a whackjob 🤣 What can I say, I've been quarantined for too long, I guess...
  21. You are so welcome ! I'm very happy to provide the reminder, it's such a gorgeous scent, I hated the thought of it getting no love in the sale - so happy you got it ! @Eastwood22 that idea for the Butterscotch OCCO pairing is awesome ! It just so happens that Butterscotch is going in my order, so I'm going to try that out, too ! @Kayla it also goes amazingly with OCCO White, I pair it with that a lot & it's a gorgeous pairing, too.
  22. I figured that I would bump this thread, since I see that there's a bottle up for grabs for the sale, & it may get overlooked. I bought a vial of this back in June, I believe ? And fell so deeply in love with it, that I immediately ordered a full bottle. I am not exaggerating in the least when I say that this is absolute heaven ! It's creamy, boozy, caramel ( at least, it reads caramel on me ) banana folded into that gorgeous LP base. It's one of the richest, most edible gourmands that I've ever tried - ever. If you're a gourmand lover, & you're trying to think of something to grab for your free bottle, I would highly consider this !
  23. You're the reason that I reserved one of the Fairy Cake Gingerbreads, lol. I remember you raving over that one awhile back. Can't wait to try it ! To stay on topic, I reserved ( for the time being, anyway, lol ) Fairy Cake : Gingerbread, Fairy Cake : Rose, & planning on ordering OCCO Butterscotch & OCCO Weenie Pump.
