  1. weird, unGotcha smells like absolutely nothing to me. suddenly concerned i've been stinking up the place and had no idea....D= edit: I should note that most pheros smell like nothing to me (obviously not cops - though I don't find them as offensive as some make them out to be). never did even when i first starting using them, so it's not that i'm used to them. i do get self-effects though, i just don't sense any scent to them...
  2. As a petite female (5'1" if I stand up tall enough ) I can definitely attest to being intimidated by tall women. Moreso than tall men, actually. Most tall women come off as alpha to me from the get go unless they are very, very strongly not so. Oddly enough, all of my closest female friends are 5'8"+ except one (who is my height). My best friend is 5'8" and loves 5 inch heels, I don't really wear more than a couple inches - the first impressions people get of us is hilarious, because without fail she is always taken to be older & more alpha and she is neither of those things, haha.
  3. maybe silly question but... are we allowed to order a newbie collection even if we've been here for awhile? if not i totally understand why but i love the idea of the trial size grab bag type option - i don't care so much about the option where the customer gets to pick 10 but i would love a "Pick them for me!" mystery sampler because it forces me out of my comfort zone to discover things i might not have ever ordered otherwise!
  4. yes!! i always ALWAYS forget this and it isn't until days later that i figure out why the alcohol went to my brain so quickly interestingly, i find alcohol seems to wear off much faster with mones as well. it just hits me like a train but takes off just as fast. i've heard this is an actual side effect before (at least the tolerance reduction part), but what's the actual scientific explanation? i think i've read it before but can't find it now and my curiousity is piqued.
  5. thanks for putting this up Mara - it is sooooo helpful, i am bookmarking it for sure!
  6. the main reason i started taking it was to have my period only every 3 months (it's lo-seasonique). i don't get laid enough at this point in time for that even to really be a reason to take BC though i do have my hopes that that will change (hi, BI, are you listening?? HELP ME). when i stopped taking it for about 8 months it was because i was uninsured and couldn't really afford it between the gyno visits and the pills themselves - $$$$$!!! i found that there were a host of both positive and negative differences not being on it, but ultimately decided the negatives outweighed the positives once i got insurance again. i did switch from seasonale to lo-seasonique - which is notably different though not quite in the ways i interpreted, but i suppose that's a novel for another time.
  7. odd thing I have noticed with BI (and other pheros, but BI was the one that made me realize it): it works SO MUCH DIFFERENTLY for me when i am on birth control. i wasn't on the pill when i posted my last review, when it worked so well, but now that i am back on it it's a very tricky balance to get just the right amount. the line between too little & too much is *so thin* - when i do get it right it's still magic, but it's sooo hard to get in that little space of 'right'! recently i wore a shitload of a scent boosted with BI - and i mean shitload - to a party in a loft where it was about 105 inside all night [diffusion city] and i couldn't make it through the room without people (both genders) stopping me to tell me how good i looked, how awesome my hair was, how cool my shoes were, you name it...although bizarrely the bartender HATED me, yet no one else seemed to get weird effects. but i haven't been able to quite get back to that perfect dosage again. sigh in the more general sense, i feel like i have a much harder time with all pheros when i am on BC. many seem less effective, and when i do get stellar hits, they are always consistent for that one phero-wearing session but again, hard to get that exact dosage right again. has anyone else experienced this? i would expect things enhanced by cops to function a little differently for obvious reasons, but even the purely social ones seem different. hmm.
  8. I always get it allllll over my clothes and hair - i'm a wild one with the spray pumps - and i've definitely never gotten eau de cops. i always forget this has them!! however, i always seem to get scents with cops all up in my clothes/hair and never really get funk unless i get funk on the skin when wet - a lot i don't - so maybe it's just my nose (yikes). there are some scents though (cops aside), that i swear never come out of my clothes if the oil so much as thinks about touching the fabric - especially the chocolatey or honey ones - could be worse since they still smell *good*, but i can always tell what LP i was wearing last time i wore that! oop, i just saw this, but the response i just posted works perfect for this too!!
  9. well here i am 5 years late with the verdict, lol! i do like it a lot, i get sugary fluffy and not much lavender, but it does have a "purple" vibe... but maybe that's the power of suggestion LAM doesn't do anything for me and never has in anything i've gotten with it. that's ok, i wear it with some un-PP and they are wonderfully congruent. the scent does stick around a long time on me - quite a feat - i've taken to spraying a lot on my hair and it seems a nice cloud around me i'm not 100% in love, but i do like it a lot. i might order another sample - i think the phero doing nothing for me is what tips me away from a full bottle :\
  10. ha! i'm glad everyone is still cheering for it! i had actually already ordered it when i posted that, so my anticipation was (is) at an all time high, now i not-so-patiently await mr. mailman...
  11. so stoked i came by this - i was just talking with one of my friends the other day about mosquitos, and how i've never noticed them ever, really. i always thought it was because i grew up in a desert so i just didn't encounter them, but she said she thought some people were inclined to be more liked by mosquitos - her and her boyfriend have always been mosquito magnets, but they always left one of her sisters alone! i guess her theory is true, i had no idea!!
  12. NOOOOOoooo these reviews are scaring me - keeping my fingers crossed this doesn't happen to me...i am SO EXCITED to try it
  13. indeed.... i can barely get a toe into this forum without getting the store open in another tab ready to load up another cartload oooooops i'm sooooo excited to try this now... mail, appear here now please...!
  14. i LOVE lachrymosa... sang it a couple years in choir in high school & somehow still remember parts of it today... the melody still rings in my head when i think about it. where do i find me one of those?!

    The Sand Box

    this did not smell at all like i expected - but i am OBSESSED! surprise love for me for sure - i get very sweet, almost creamy (???!!) with the resins floating very lightly. yes - i see drifting white sands for sure, but with yummyness i'm very curious about how it would smell on a male - can't imagine it being anything like it smells on me??!
  16. i spilled my vial everywhere after about 3 uses BUT i love love loveddddd this one. sooooo creamy without being full on dessert in your face, if that makes sense. and the phero- had to hang out with my boss's son for a bit and he seemed sooo happy to be around me even though i am super awkward with kids, not good with them at all - ding ding ding winner! now if only, something to make me less of a klutz...
  17. exactly my feelings! not really my 'thing' as scents go but i did enjoy my sample much & it somehow disappeared much faster than i thought!!
  18. came here to talk about the paper! thought i might be a weirdo for it being the first thing i noticed, nope, looks like all is normal in LP-land the colors look gorgeous on these labels and the paw-print pouch is the cutest little touch
  19. me too! this post is EXACTLY me, down to the caffeine part my friends have compared me to a chihuahua before... :lol: this thread has me wondering if height does contribute to the way a person's personality is? when i think about it, most of my tall female friends are very girly, "EST-ish", prefer very dominant men, etc. and most of my short friends are very dominant - and my average height friends are a much more varied bunch! iiiiinteresting.
  20. OMG she is a gorgeous kitty!!! for the descriptions... i opted for only the half-set of trial sizes because i owe uncle sam my firstborn (how did this happen?? arghhh....) but omg, i had no clue it would be so hard to pick just 10. yipes!!
  21. OMGGGGGG these are too adorable!! cry havoc is making me cry with laughter. i just keep looking at all of the labels over & over again and noticing new things every time. too amazing!
  22. OMG. i was wearing un-PP yesterday wandering around downtown in a beach town. sooo many hits - but most notable - two women in their mid-40s walked past me, stopped, did a triple-take, and one of them goes "oh my god... you look like... who is it?? oh my god nicole kidman in practical magic!!!" :lol: i so do not, but i'll take it!
  23. oh my gosh - i got a sniffee of this as a gift in a trade and this smells amazing. Goddess (& Mara), you are brilliant, this is incredible!!
