  1. Back to bang on tediously yet again about how LFM makes people bend over backwards for you. I was wearing a little spritz, spread on tummy with forearm, of homemade spray of LP Original flavored LFM, which is, I’m going to guess, at least 7 years old? Probably older. I think it’s from the very first ever batch of LFM, so however long ago that was. Proving the quality and longevity of LP pheros is above and beyond. ETA ok I looked it up and this is LFM that I received in FEBRUARY 2012!!! Went to a new doctor. We talked about what I needed. He said I had to make a separate appointment to get measured for the thing … which is a COMPLETE MONEY GRAB for a second visit charge and copay, as you’ll see in a moment. He made a clearly well rehearsed absurd excuse about why we couldn’t just do the measurement right there. I sighed and said oh I wish I’d known to ask for the measurement before I made this appointment. He had made to leave so he was by the door. I was sitting on the exam table and I scootched forward to get the LFM closer to him and randomly flailed my pheroed arm at him. 😂 I did not get up - decided to wait for the LFM to kick in. He stared off into space for about 15 seconds and then said “Hang on a minute.” He went out to the front and had a long conversation with her front desk, then came back, having made an exception to their usual process for me. The measurement took - no exaggeration - less than a minute. Still, no one can convince me that the LFM is not what changed his mind - saving me not just money but the pain in the ass of making another appointment in the middle of a busy workday. AND THROUGH HIS MASK NO LESS!!
  2. OMG!!!!! Most unisex scents are way too masculine with my chemistry. But (broken record) this is why I must try everything ON. I would NEVER have thought to try this if I hadn’t gotten the sampler (another evergreenly good idea). Some sandalwoods give me headaches. Patchouli is sometimes just too extra on me and/or reads uncomfortably similar to BO. Though occasionally there’ll be one that works, resin-forward scents mostly are not congruent with me and just aren’t my thing. But THIS! THIS!! If not for the label, I’d never have thought it was unisex at any point. On me — Up front it was so warm and snuggly. It was intermittently and alternatingly very sweet and vanilla-y, and then more like a big fat luscious bar of very expensive french soap (I mean this in a good way)- I was thinking that this would totally pass for leftover-soap-scent in environments where perfumes are frowned upon. It has since morphed, a few times. While still almost wet, maybe around 3 minutes in, and for just a minute or so, it suddenly got REALLY BIG. It made me think of the huge marshmallow (?) man in the original Ghostbusters movie. Huge presence and throw, and still very sweet. That was the only time it smelled even remotely potentially traditionally masculine - there was something that made me think of a well worn brown leather jacket, armchair, etc. Then when that subsided it got more creamy and fuzzy than sweet. Now, in very late drydown, it is reminding me of Night of Delight and Sensual Harmony - that translucent, light-of-the-silvery-moon-across-your-skin kind of close-hugging, purring, intimate skin scent. Overall I think the reason this works is that I love coconut to an abnormal degree, and I guess it loves me too. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Once again the axiom proves true: when it comes to LP, ya just gotta TRY EVERYTHING ON. I love to EAT pineapple and raspberries, but pineapple in perfume is a crapshoot on me, and raspberry mostly doesn’t work on me. I straight up dislike both “blue” notes AND orchid usually. And yet, when I slathered this on without checking notes, I couldn’t have identified even one of the notes. I yelled “OMG, FLOWER CANDY.” All I could have said was that it was round, juicy, and robust, and most intriguingly it gives an inexplicable celestial vibe, a sense of height and “otherness.” I felt sort of transported / lifted somehow. It’s uplifting. Not cheerful exactly, but … almost physically elevating and “broadening.” Especially as it’s drying down, the word “otherworldly” keeps coming to mind. So congruent with the origin of the name!!! I have no idea how Mara does this (magick?). It’s incredible. If I had to pin it down, I might guess it’s something about the quality of the orchid that is creating this cool, remote kind of feeling. It is ineffable and ineffably beautiful and unique.

    screaming and crying and running in circles this is so good. Instant all time top five. I find stargazers overwhelming in person and sometimes they give me headaches. But thanks to these reviews I tried it and it is simply amazing. It’s a dream. It’s everything. It’s girly, professional, sophisticated, approachable, sweet, warm and yet cool at the same time somehow, both foody- it put frosting in my mind’s eye - and yet very credible (not frivolous like some simple commercial foody scents can be)... I wish to bathe in this. I have no business buying multiple bottles right now but got one for now and another for the vault, and expect to one day regret not getting more.
  7. I just found a tub of Tropical Delight sugar scrub somewhere it wasn’t supposed to be. I didn’t see a separate thread for it, so just continuing the most recent sugar scrub review for tidiness. I used it gently on my face, mainly hoping that some of it might accidentally get in my mouth, which it did, and it was so delicious that I’ll be sitting down with the whole tub after dinner and having it a la mode, with some vanilla ice cream, using my adorable tiny spoon. HAHA JUST KIDDING! but I want to. I used it all over and I am so soft and dewy. LOVE
  8. @Eggers the discount is practically guaranteed with LFM! It is FASCINATING to me how it makes people want to shower you with gifts and such.
  9. Dom was my first thought too, especially because you said she is a NICE person - it might help send a different, needed signal. (I have a hunch that something conciliatory or friendly or beta-feeling would make it worse. It seems like making the roommate want to be friendly would be much harder than simply making her RESPECT your friend.) She would have to try to act at least somewhat congruently with it though. My other slight concern is that it MIGHT make the problem roommate up the ante to (eek) violence if it makes her feel challenged. Dom turns me into the Hulk, so I am afraid of it, haven’t used it much, & don’t know too well from personal experience whether that effect ever happens...? Maybe she could try it on the roommate in a relatively safe situation, ideally in public with lots of witnesses... Next to mind are BI for its no-nonsense vibe, LFN for its YOU *WILL* RESPECT ME effect, and maybe SWS - that would probably be the most “credible” and least jarring “signature” change she could try.
  10. I think about this “carpet swan” thing most times I wear LFM, and it happened quite dramatically today. I went to see a celebrity hairstylist - had never been there before. Upon first meeting he was crabby, didn’t really make eye contact, and didn’t smile at all. As I got shampooed by someone else, I thought resentfully, “I’m gonna LFM this mf’er... that’ll show HIM.” I had Bonflower on me so I put a dab on my forehead. When I got back to his chair, in the mirror I saw his eyes widen as if he were suddenly getting alarming news - it was comical - in a comic strip it would have said over our heads, “AND THEN THE LFM HITS....” - and from that point on the LFM resulted in him asking me lots of personal questions, and telling ME all kinds of personal crap I didn’t want to know, including exactly where he LIVES, and sharing various personal concerns and motivations he has to an uncomfortable degree, and calling over every type of specialist present and basically making them pitch themselves to me and offer me their specialized services for FREE, and announcing that they would let me come in before or after regular salon hours so they could do their whatever, “ANYTIME, just call us, please call us,” and BEAMING at me at random as if I had just told him he had won the lottery. AND I got free product, which I didn’t see offered to anyone else.
  12. @anchoredinopulence 🤣 nobody wants that!!
  13. Definitely not me ... way too impatient to ever do any math ... trial and error. I will say that with audacious I have to use micro micro microscopic amounts, which gives me serene haughty confidence - or else it is not good
  14. Oh Halo I deserve no credit! I just believe in getting the phero into their face by whatever means necessary and then the phero does all the work of overcoming whatever bizarre impression those means may have created 😁
  15. 🤣🤣🤣 I’m sure it looked bonkers. We can add this to the LONG list of odd phero- and scent-related behaviors I have tried over the years.
  16. Relationship saver!!My colleague who I’m reasonably good friends with, had an inexplicable snit at me over email a few weeks ago. I was semi dreading a meeting I was having with him earlier this week. The only phero I had on me was LFM but I was pretty confident it would be a good choice in any case. It is a little homemade spray with LP Original, very aged - I made it when LFM first came out, so however old that is. So I put a little spritz on my head (he’s taller than me). After fainting because nothing on earth smells better than aged LP O, I went to the meeting. He studiously and totally ignored me at first, while others said hello. But I kept pointing the top of my head his way and he started looking at me, then engaging during the meeting, and afterward waited outside for me, and was weirdly mushy and vulnerable, and more agreeable and outward-focused than even his normal self. It was as if the snit never happened. MAGICK + CHEMISTRY can’t be beat. Yet again thank you to the master of potions for making our lives so much better. 💕
  17. Somebody has to explain how you were able to ship so quickly in the middle of everything else! It seemed as though I placed my order, then went directly to the mailbox and it was there.
  18. ^ everything sk said. “BAM MINIMIZING SPELL” - SO CUTE and so generous!!!
  19. @Eastwood22 this is very very funny. You’re silently side-eyeing your seat mate, and fuming at the flight attendant, and meanwhile you’re the one probably driving everyone mad with the delicious scent 🤣
  20. I’m so jealous... I’d love to smell like cilantro
  21. Dragon’s blood is the deathest of death notes for me. Vial sniff: I said “nope.” Wet: I did not like. But just for kicks I kept it on, and the dragon’s blood had faded in a few hours, and it was just a dark, you might even say blood, red juicy spooky cloud around me for a while. Then it disappeared. Then about 6 hours in I started saying crossly “What smells so good??” and stomping around trying to figure out where the smell was coming from. It was coming from me. It was the Blud. This freaking collection I did however make the huge mistake of not checking/realizing before WEARING IT TO WORK that this had not just pheros but sexpionage 😱 All day I thought “boy everyone is in a good mood today”... Women were chatty, super happy to see me, and hung on my every word. I also noticed they seemed to keep repeating themselves - a lot! I know them all pretty well, and none of them are like that usually. So it was notable. One male colleague, we’re pretty good friends, & he’s never made a secret of being attracted to me but has never been inappropriate & it’s, just not a thing. He’s usually extremely socially competent, but today, I came into a room and sat down across from him and he loudly blurted out something not exactly sexual or inappropriate but... kind of weird, while getting halfway up out of his seat and seeming to just barely stop himself from diving across the table. A belated DIH/dazed expression crossed his face and he sat down, looking very confused. Several others of us exchanged glances. It was bizarre. Another male colleague, who is pretty reserved, the type who frequently shyly drops eye contact, was sitting kitty corner to me but increasingly leaned WAY back, away from me, to a sort of hilarious degree, like 45 degrees, but did not take his eyes off me for like 15 minutes straight, staring with the intensity of a starving Big Cat. It was super unnerving, and it’s what made me finally think to check what was in this, and then I was like oh ok well that explains ... everything. So, no more sexpionage at work for me. ETA I just looked at the notes and there are no red fruits anywhere. There is no accounting for my nose’s imagination. ETA forgot to mention! I got way too little sleep last night and was pleasantly surprised how not miserable I was all day. I think the sexpionage kept me going!
  22. He’s already repeatedly demonstrated violence. This doesn’t appear to alarm you so I’m kind of at a loss honestly.
  23. This smelled 95% the same to me as the original version I have except that I’m getting a tiny bit more resins than my mind’s nose recalls of the original. Deep and delicious. I forgot about the phero and was feeling a paranoid sort of “what is UP with everybody?” all day (people being super attentive and helpful #EST) and only just remembered the CB 🙃 it has been 10+ hours since I put it on and it’s still very present chocolate amber powder *snorrrrrrf*
