  1. I just ordered a couple of the Quintessence sprays, and a trial of Lilu. My sniffer is still messed up because of Covid, so I’m leery of buying perfumes right now 😏

    Soul Cakes

    When I put this on, I first thought of Scotchies! Then as it dried down, it was more reminiscent of Animal Crackers. I love both of those, so this is a total win for me!
  3. When this was wet on my skin, I could pick out more notes, esp the chocolate! But it dried down to a yummy marshmallow, with pumpkin wafts - 😋
  4. I always love Flying Potion! Marshmallow, a bit of licorice, and a bit of spice - so pretty, and it lasts a long time in my skin!
  5. Blue Smoke was one of my faves. I still have a little bit of it. Mr Perfect wears Black Fyre sometimes, but it’s not my favorite. I actually hid it from him awhile back, lol. This is very interesting. I didn’t remember to shake it before I tried it, so I will give it another go soon. I’m getting a lot of blueberry, a little smoke and musk. It’s nice but I’ll stick with my Blue Smoke

    Aqua Tofana

    Ermahgerd.. I wasn’t expecting to like this one so much 😍 It’s very fresh, with a coolness that reminds me of Gargoyle Gargle or Morning Star. The licorice is what draws me in, because I’m a licorice ‘ho. I can’t stop sniffing my wrist!! It’s fresh and spicy and a little sweet, and so amazing!!

    Platelet Punch

    I’m not a berry girl, but this is very pretty. I get all the berries, and the tea, but not really any white chocolate. The amber keeps it grounded and smooth.
  8. I like this one! The lavender kind of reminds me of ... I can’t think of it now, but it was an older LP. It’s got that camphor-y feel to it. And I get the opposite of@Kayla, I get the lavender up close, and the pumpkin wafts from arm length, so it feels like awesome Halloween magick!
  9. Definitely agree with @Eastwood22, this would be droolworthy on a guy. I like it on me, but it’s probably not one I would wear often. The leaves and pumpkin spice are simply perfect! The tobacco is prominent, but not overpowering. I will get Mr Perfect to try it soon
  10. Can’t wait to get a sampler and sniff these!! (Just FYI, the label for Platelet Punch is missing one of the E’s)
  11. This is GORGEOUS! I love it on me, but I can’t wait to try it on Mr Perfect, too. It’s smooth and understated-sexy. Deep without being dark. If he likes it, I may get us a bottle to share.
  12. This one is the surprise hit of the bunch for me. I always thought I hated the smell of lilies. But stargazer lily is spicy! This perfume is soooo pretty. I couldn’t stop smelling my arm – I’d definitely like to have a bottle!
  13. (adding the description because from reading the notes above, I didn't remember that it had the ozone accord) I can't get any honey from this, or musk. On my arm, it's mostly honeysuckle and a tiny bit of blackberry. I do get the rain & ozone, it makes it a little sharp. Perhaps after drydown, it will even out a bit more.
  14. Mmmm... I can't wait to smell this on Mr Perfect! I do think it might be too masculine for me to wear, but I love smelling it! It's such a unique scent - the green notes with the spicy tobacco, and the aquatic/ozone vibe. It's got a lot going on, but it still works.
  15. I really like this one! It could definitely be unisex, although it does lean a bit masculine. Bright, slightly spicy wood - it kind of smells like it could be a fancy men's body care scent, I'd love to have this in a soap or lotion. Or a bath bomb!
  16. I had to go back and make sure I put this one on - I'm not getting any of the floral or fruity notes. At least, not really. I think I'm mostly getting teakwood - but you know what it smells like? It smells like when you go into a new age store, and you can smell the candles, and the books, and all the other cool scents, all mingled together. Maybe my nose is tired, lol. 🥴 I will try this one again soon.
  17. Unlike @luna65, I am not a fan of fizzy scents 🥺 Behind the fizz, I can detect some of the strawberry sweetness. I'll come back to this later, if I can, and hopefully describe it after the fizz calms down.

    Mount Pleasant

    To my nose, this is exactly how it's described. Fruity first, with the tang of grapefruit, then the soft coconut and sandalwood. It's kind of making me long for a tropical drink!

    Bower of Bliss

    I did not expect to like this as much as I do... the green notes and the seawater really make this an intriguing floral scent. I like honeysuckle, but gardenia is sometimes iffy on me. I could see myself wearing this, esp on an upcoming trip to the coast.
  20. I love Tunnel of Love, and the addition of the pikaki blossoms really changes it - the sweet creaminess is still there, but the floral is the star here. The honey makes itself known the first few hours but after it dries down, it's not as prominent.

    Fancy Article

    I think I might have to try this one again at some point. When I had it on, I couldn't even tell that it was pineapple, other than a bit of fruity-sweetness. The sage, musk, and vanilla stuck around the longest, and the drydown was nice.

    Tunnel of Love

    The coconut cream is so gorgeous, and the honey is almost light and airy. It smells amazing, and lasts pretty well on my skin. Mara hit this one out of the park 😍

    Pink Pearl

    Egods, this is good! So pink, so sweet, so fun.. it's mostly melon and musk to me. I don't know if I'd wear it enough to buy a bottle, but I'm going to keep and enjoy my sample.

    Petticoat Lane

    If you've tried Spider Silk or Gossamer Threads, this is very similar. Soft and slightly sweet. A bit powdery, and very much like a sheer veil of sweet musk..
