  1. Thank you, Elizabeth. You are very kind!
  2. Mara - Can you please give mine to Elizabeth? It's her present to hubby and I'd feel bad taking it.
  3. Thanks, PM! I'll do the 5X gift certs and add it to my April sample order. It will probably be in a few days after I feed my paypal $.
  4. This started out rather lemony on me, them became a bit tropical with the coconut and pineapple, that miraculously morphed into a "just showered" skin scent. I wouldn't have expected that neding from my first sniff; it's fascinating.

    The Smoking Bun

    I think fans of Pithivier and Dream Lover will like this and vice versa, although each has its own distinct personality. They all three start out with a yummy chocolate front man, supported by their respective backup singers: marshmallow for Bun, violet for Pithivier, and orange/cotton for DL. Vedy nice.
  6. This is very smooth and cozy. I'd love this on a guy, but like it on me, too!
  7. Thanks for the amazingly fast turnaround on my order. I got my stamps notice a day after I placed it. Yay!
  8. Oh Elizabeth, your description of the scent and your painting are absolutely amazing! I can't imagine how much fun it must be at your house up in the California mountains surrounded by art and music! Mara, will there be any leftovers of Elizabeth's scent? I want to roll around in it like a dog on a seagull, too!!! This was a wonderful idea to share to creative processes of these PEs on the forum. All the stories were SO good.
  9. I've been intrigued by this one, too. I'd love to hear anyone's thoughts, as well.

    Prophetic Pie

    That's hilarious, Darbla! I loved Terry and Neil Gaiman's "Good Omens", looks like I've got to add Discworld to me reading list, too!

    Seven Tears

    That's when I got embroiled, too!

    I don't notice any chocolate, although it may play a supporting role. Florals can go a bit strident on me sometimes, but this is gorgeous and elegant. It is extremly lush, but at the same time well-bred and subtle. The beautiful label artwork captures this exactly: the model's creamy complexion and soft pink makeup against the velvety petals are a perfect visual representation of this scent.

    Seven Tears

    Another lovely sniffie! I had read the description a while back and decided the the pine and aquatics would be too astringent for me (really fresh scents make me sneeze.) Giving this a skin test, though, the first word to pop into my mind was "gentle". The meadow-like aspects from the daffodils, heather, and thyme are really shining through. At the same time, the cucumber and mint give it a very slight coolness, which is very evocative of the Scottish Highlands. This would be great on a girl or guy. Gah, when is there going to be a sale?! There are so many things I want and I can never afford them all. WAAAAHHHH!
  14. I definitely get the reference to the "candy in your mouth" feel! It starts out with a very syrupy blast of sweetness, then settles down to a creamy soft candy. This is more akin to Summer Solstice 2009 (without the grape) than Spring Equinox 2009, which was straight floral on me. This is quite lovely!

    Prophetic Pie

    Got this as a lovely sniffie with my latest order. My first thought was how much this reminded me of the Autumnal Equinox scents, which are my absolute favorites! Looks like the other reviewers had the same thought. I'm not noticing the lemon (which is good), but it's probably adding a bit of sparkle under the radar along with the rhubarb. Even though it's a beautiful spring day, I really like this scent and don't kind if I smell seasonally anachronistic.
  16. (cracking up on the cat-boy interchange!) This was a bit too feral for me to pull off. Civit and me are not meant to be.
  17. This starts out very chocolately, then lightens up to a very breezy, light scent thanks to the neroli and cotton blossom. It's a very subtle, lovely, soft scent.
  18. BV - I've had that experience, too, particularly with amber scents. Sometimes I have to let them sit a day or two after I receive them and let the fragrance bloom. This one was very sweet on me. The sugar notes reminded me of Egg or Erin's Crystalized Sugar web.
  19. Friends of ours have a St. Pat's party every year one of the traditions is to play a gambling game called LRC, or Left Right Center. I wore this scent and it lived up to its name--I won the pot! (~$40). I think I'll spend it on a bottle of #7!

    Velvet Moss

    This started out a bit masculine on me, but softened on dry down. Moss scents tend to strike me a very fuzzy and mysterious vibe with me, as does this scent.
  21. I noted a sense of "coolness" as well, which I think it is the aloe. This is very a soothing, lovely scent. It makes me feel very peaceful and calm.

    Brigid's Amber

    This one reminds me a bit of a lemon creme Girl Scout cookie: light, luscious, and a little tart. Yum.
  23. I think this a new record! Practically immediate turnaround for the stamps notification. Yay team LP!
  24. Actually, I take it back. It dries down to a lovely spicy floral just like everyone says. I need to be more patient.
