    This is a winner for all you strawberry fans! Creamy rich vanilla swirled buttercream with the strawberry blending seamlessly. With sugar on top. Sinfully sweet.

    This a rare s’mores, wood fire, smokey woodsy I can wear. Chocolate and marshmallow blast when wet which is so nommy. Then the nutmeg, cedar and vanilla come in and anchor and ground everything. Really smooth not a sharp edge in sight. I probably will save this for a little cooler weather and I can’t wait!
  3. Wow! Just wow. I love honeysuckle but am not generally that big into jasmine or hedione as they can get a little stabby In the 3rd eye area. Once again Mara makes one that breaks all my rules. I love it. Luna’s description of 3D is spot on. This is round and lush. The florals are rich sweet AND airy at the same time while the honey brings in that lightly dripping warmth. The clover is so nice for keeping it from being too sticky. This is like walking around flower gardens on a bright sunny Spring into Summer morning where the light is just right. Stunning, simply stunning.
  4. They are gorgeous! Fun and bright. Love the idea and the reasons behind it.
  5. My friend Andrew is wearing this today( and probably buying a bottle now) and in the vial I didn’t care for it due to the big hit of dragon’s blood -which I’m not a fan of. But on him after dry down this is gorgeous! Deep, warm, spicy and vaguely identifiably resinous but not so overt that I recoil ( LMAO I’m not a big resin lover). Smoooooth and definitely sexy. I’d be into this on a man.
  6. I really like this one but not sure I love it yet. Love the tonka, vanilla and balsam big time. The tobacco is the type that doesn’t bug me and is just smooth and good but the mahogany is strong enough to be giving me pause. But not to long dry down yet and I feel like this is one I will need to test multiple times. It is really warm and sexy regardless. I know I’d love it on the right man if not myself.
  7. OMFG some man is putting this on around me soon. SEX BOMB! Damn this is dead sexy.
  8. Wow this takes me right back to 2014. Really a close rebrew. I agree the Apple packs a slightly bigger punch maybe but I agree that could be just the freshness of this new batch. Tart, sweet, fresh made a leeeeetle bit smutty with the honey tang. Then the amber and oak moss drydown really soften it and bring that powdery smoothness. Really lovely perfume and a fun morpher. Perfect for Spring and Summer!
  9. 2 bottles of the Lavender Quin. Sprays, full bottle of Odalisque and still trying to decide on some body care products
  10. I adore this version! I’m sure it’s no surprise that this one is my first BIG LOVE since my original PE Angelique. Or maybe it is, as I think I’ve been rather quiet about the rebrew variants never holding a candle to Angelique -for me personally. This is like Angelique and Odalisque OG had a beautiful baby. It’s actually aged into closer to Angelique over the past weeks. It’s a bit sweeter and heavier and weightier than the actual original Angelique which had an airier quality with the musk compared to the rebrews which have always been richer and smuttier. I have always enjoyed samples of Odalisque and Odalesque but this is my first FB since Angelique ( of which there were many)! Thank you Mara! This feels like a present for me. LOVE! SQUEE!
  11. I absolutely love this! It is pretty damn close to that OG Lavender Marshmallow as Luna said. Swooooooon! Lavender is smooth with a touch of crispness that just feels pillowy when combined with the soft marshmallow fluff. Two full bottles for me!
  12. This is really a foodie dream. Very very Cinnabon in a perfume. Spicy warm cinnamon melds perfectly with a doughy rich bread note topped with a swirl of sugary icing and the pecans which are warm and toasty. The pecans are sweet but don’t go into the treacly range which nutty things often can head me into if combined with a warm or sticky sugar. Delish!
  13. It took awhile for my smell to fully come back last year but not as long as yours is taking. I’m going to order at least one Quintessence spray too. Lavender...shocking, I’m sure.
  14. I don’t think it’s an issue with Aja. It’s an issue with cops because of where on the body they are secreted in natural form. But Aja is a different compound entirely and plant based so I don’t think any of that applies.
  15. Yesssssss! YASSSS! Yummmmm! YAY!! I love this so much. I’m so glad Mara remembered I requested a Balsamic vanilla floral. When she asked me about it last month I did not remember but that’s not too uncommon for me these days but we talked and she agreed with me saying a lush lily is really the floral I’d want and omg KAPOW! I love. So glad Mara made this. Thank you! The vanilla and balsam are wonderful and rich and smooth. The lily is lush and sweet but not cloying. This is like my original first LP LOVE Sugared Lilies with LP’s signature vanilla.
  16. In the vial I could smell a lot of bamboo which can get stabby on me, so I put it aside for awhile hoping it would settle. Now that I’m wearing it on skin, it’s much more wearable for me with the citrus and especially the Musk. I love a green musk combo. The citrus fades really fast which was to be expected with any citrus but even more so with EOs. Very wearable scent for everyone. Really nice for spring/summer. Great idea pairing this with Mega Watt!
  17. The peach and honey are way in the background for me. The peach is there, but it’s so intermingled with the mimosa and the green elements that it’s hard to identify. The honey does come out more in the long drydown. I think the aloe and clover make it just a little too pokey for me, which is sad because this is a glorious example of a perfect Spring perfume.
  18. This is definitely a new take on cherry blossom. The hibiscus and tea make it much fresher than your typical cherry blossom scent. It does read a bit soapy on me during initial stages. Long dry down gets softer and a little more cherry blossom-esque. Really really softens up but also fades fairly fast on me. Very nice freshly showered skin scent.
  19. The open is all bright tangy grapefruit and the darker zing of currant. It stays cheery and somewhat bright but also softens rather dramatically pretty quickly. The marshmallow reads as pillowy and almost powdery in feel. Doesn’t smell strictly powdery but that dry feel of powder with the softness. Really lovely! I think I will wear this often this season.
  20. I agree with Luna about the spa feel to this one. The lavender is herbal but really disappears quickly for me under the other bracing herbal notes. I get the tiniest hint of cedar. A lot of eucalyptus and other herbs. The B2.2 will likely make this a great sleep scent for many. It’s refreshing for me, so not so much a sleepy tine scent for me. Very nice.
