  1. OMG, too funny...I last posted on this review and I'm doing it again! I'm on a beachy theme this week with coconut fragrances so am trying this one again. The berry and coconut still disappear so quickly, but I'm going to trying layering with sugared berries to amp them up a bit.

  2. An update...As the day has gone on, the tea and honey created the sophisticated notes, I've been sniffing my wrists through the morning to help identify. It isn't old-lady at all, but classy and fresh. The tea especially was very smooth and mellow, and with the tonka, reminded me of how black tea leaves smell before brewing.

     

    I'm so glad I tried layering both of these, the addition of UNE really helped tone down the vetiver.

  3. I'm trying it out today with UNE, so far it is just lovely...and sophisticated, but want to give it some more time to meld on my skin and see how it wears.

  4. This one sounded so interesting in the description and am glad I got a sample to try it out. It was very nutty on me (nut, maple, pecan scents on me tend to amp like crazy), not much sweet or butter/cream. However as it dried down the tobacco softly appeared, reminds me a bit of my dad's pipe tobacco smell. I want to give this one another try to see how well it wears on me again.

  5. This is very floral on me, hardly any Tonka even after wearing for several hours, but the tea and vetiver are the strongest with the honey lightly underneath.

     

    Having read through everyone's reviews, I need to try this again and have a crazy idea of pairing it with a touch of UNE for more honey and less vetiver...

  6. Love the sweetness of the chocolate right off, I feel like a treat and did slather it on. Once the sweetness fades away I have a lovely soft lingering scent, slightly floral yet yummy but also the hay gives this a very nice outdoors early fall feel. What's funny, the hay in this still triggers my allergies, which happened when I first tested it, but I love it too much to care!

  7. OMG, this is an amazing scent! Very yummy, very sexy yet delicate at the same time. The honey and whipped cream is delicious. I was worried that the caramel sugar would amp on me, caramel and nut scents usually do, but not this delight of the perfume gods. The amber and spice are light and round it out so it doesn't get too sweet. This is the second in my new found love for honey scents, UNE and this. Gotta get a full bottle!

  8. I just ordered a bottle, on a bit of a whim, but I'm in love with Pherogirl just wanted the scent minus phero to wear to work. Can't wait for this one to arrive!

     

    And...I have to say how much I appreciate the forum and everyone's reviews, knowledge and insight to the LP products! It's so helpful when I'm on a mission to find information on a scent or pheromone. Thank you all :)

  9. I just cannot get any love from this one. The berry fades very quickly on me and while the coconut and bourbon are fun and boozey, they fade away too. The musk that remains is more like I spent the day on the beach w/o any shade (bad musky, kind of grimey) vs fruity, coconut, vanilla-y musky = fun.

    Great info and reviews. *How* have I missed this one? Oh yea - bc I'm scouring every single page as much as I can to read @ everything I can!

     

    Coconut cream = YUM, Vanilla = YUM, Honey, Amber, and more more plus cops. Adding to my list!! I'm def a water girl - will I feel like a Mermaid, a Water Nypmh or a Siren? :Emoticons0804: Can't wait to try and find out.

    I couldn't have said it better myself! Agree with all of these, and love this one, exactly what I was looking for in a fruity tropical summer scent. I want to wear it all the time but have been cautious due to the cops lol.

  11. I cannot believe I haven't posted a review on this one, it's become one of my favorite lavender scents. This is a very gentle lavender, not sharp or medicinal at all. There have been some days that I've worn it, especially when my allergies are acting up or on rainy days (barometric pressure changes and verge of a headache), that the softness of this drives me crazy and sparks a full-blown migraine. That's normal for me with some scents triggering, so I know to avoid wearing then.

     

    This is a very feminine and lovely scent. What I really enjoy about this perfume is the combination of the lavender with a very light musk and the sugar. I can smell the jasmine after about an hour of wearing, once it warms on my skin, and that's a note that I look forward to. Initially it's never present...so I have to wait :) It can be hard to wait.

  12. I grabbed this one from my sample collection and on a whim thought I'd give it a try. When I first sniffed it I didn't like it at all. It was very cool/watery and made me think of a rainy cool pond.

     

    But as I'm finding, my preferences change and this morning the tartness of the berries and pomegranate smell so delicate with the bamboo and amber. I'm wearing it to work too and it's not overpowering, though I didn't slather it on. And I'm enjoying OW, this might be the first OW that I've worn too...so I'm curious how today goes (for me and with my coworkers close by).

  13. All of a sudden I am loving this one. Initially I thought I would really enjoy the almond/raspberry/nutmeg combination, was a bit skeptical of the egg, but it had sniffed ok so I thought I'd try it. Well I tried it several times and it consistently would start with the lovely marzipan almond that I love, but then morph into a strange custard plastic scent and I had to wash it offf. Something this morning though made me want to try Ionia yet again, and OMG - it must be change of me or spring season, but now it's amazing.

     

    The almond does burn off quickly but leaves a lasting hint of almond that blends so well with the vanilla and raspberry. The berry doesn't amp to be too pink or candy-like either and the amber gives it a wonderful base pulling it all together. Best of all the egg has yet to be too extreme as a custard (egg + vanilla) or plastic smelling. Hooray! I also love the glitter within the bottle, lovely touch.

  14. I pulled this out of my sample box the other day since I hadn't touched it since probably my last review. I had forgotten how much I liked the roses in it, but these roses are tempered on me with the tea. I don't know if this describes the tea correctly, but it makes it bright and fresh, which seems to offset the amount of overall floral. My comparison is to Irish Rose which is heavily rose on me. Enduring Appeal is floral and light.
