  1. Almost out of my stock of this and I see it is no longer available. Will this be made again in Mara's Rocket fuel or, as suggested, LP Black?..or Ebilish.

    Based on some of the positive reviews here, especially Mcreepers, I decided to sample this. This scent loves me. I have gotten so many compliments just wearing my sample that I now must go order a full bottle. And yes, it has amazing staying power too. I agree with those who posted about how well this would work with other scents. I'm already layering it. Goes well with LP Black, Mara's Rocket Fuel, so far. *runs off to the order pages*
  3. Wow..I feel so old to hear about all the folks who missed out on the original. To me it seems like yesterday when I received the original Spider Silk, wore it to a meeting with a normally combative person and was pleasantly surprised to be treated with patience and good humour. I have always worn this when I felt the need to engage someones protective energy and it always seems effective. Maybe it is the "baby powder" accord in there that triggers a persons subconscious protectiveness towards the wearer, I dunno. I think it works. Now to the new formulation: I was one of those people eagerly awaiting a rebrew of this. My supply of the original was running pretty low. I have both on now, the original on my left wrist, the new one on the right. Original is stronger. Wafts more. Perhaps that is a function of aging. New one is nice, but very subtle in comparison. New one, to my nose, has the white amber as the most prominent feature. I find this amber to be sharpish. I do not detect that same sharp quality in the original. Original has more of the baby powder soft gossamer thing going on. New one is subtler, less powdery and has a bit more bite to it. I know I am anosmic to some musks. I wonder if the musk in this has changed in some way from the original because the new scent seems less "deep" to me as if a dimension is missing. Again, maybe the dimension is aging, not musk molecules too big for my receptors or whatever. As for effectiveness I have not tested the new one around potentially contentious people. So, can't testify as to effectiveness yet and that is really what I wear it for. Powdery scents are not normally my thing. I'm a deep resins and incense kinda gal.
  4. I'm glad I took a chance on this. It is one of those rare perfumes that evokes the sea without smelling harshly,chemically "aquatic" (that smell that whacks you when you pass certain men's shops in the mall). First review really nails it so all I will add is that folks should try it. It IS a story in scent form.

    Night of Delight

    I sure can't top the review above. This one is easily my favorite of this months selections. It doesn't SOUND like it should work as well as it does but it is really great. I was not expecting to like this because I have smelled many cloyingly fake not so great banana notes in scents over the years but to my nose, the banana isn't the most noticeable aspect of this fragrance. The sandalwood note used in this smells like the sandalwood oil I used in the 70's , the vanilla is rich without being bakery and the hay and bananas are used in a way that give familiar sandlalwood and vanilla a twist of strange. Very inspired creation. Full bottle worthy, probably two.
  6. Maybe this really compliments my chemistry or maybe its the pheros but people really like this on me. Referencing the above post, I was initially concerned about it being too "young girl" for me (I'm over 50) but perhaps the rose combined with pepper, which appears very noticeably on my skin, makes for a somewhat carnation-y vibe that offsets the sweetness and fruitiness enough so that it works for me. At any rate, I must have more of this..ordered another.
  7. I LOOOVE this but agree that it does not have quite the same staying power as some other blends here. I find myself just huffing the bottle on days when I'm wearing something else. Bought another bottle of this and more of the nommy body butter in this same scent.
  8. For me, this is a perfect balance of rose, yumminess,tang and heat. Very original,very wearable. It is interesting to note that on different days, different notes are more prominent. As for possible phero effect: This was a very social holiday weekend. There was a big party to attend,several guests to my own home and a holiday outing. I wore this most of the weekend. I was able to help some people who confided troubling matters to me during these past few days, a place was made for me at the "men's" drinking table and everyone took time to interpret for me what was being drunk and one shopkeeper in a fairly high end shop startled me (not in a bad way) by grasping my hand and holding it as I paid for my singular, inexpensive item, beaming at me as if I were the most treasured customer. (he didn't do that to others in line, oddly.) The last interaction was probably the most out-of-the-ordinary and I found myself wondering about that for a while. Its not like I'm amazing looking, famous or something more plausible that could explain it.
  9. Dropping in after a long absence from this board to say how AMAZING the Rocket Fuel version of this is. WOW.

    Bayou Musk

    How does this compare to LP Green ? I'm looking for something that has the same perfect balance of green and vanilla with something a bit mysterious in the mix. My LP Green is almost gone (the horror!) and I'm looking for a relative of it to replace it. Most musks I either can't smell or they have that laundry-scent character I don't like. Its the musk in this that is making me hesitate even though everything else sounds fab. So,are these soapy musks or more natural skin-like ones?
  11. A friend gifted me with this for my birthday and I love it so much I've ordered another bottle. This is THE most incensy scent I have in my entire collection of scents. I am complimented on this everywhere I go. It goes on very sweet at first but the incensey quality soon dominates. Long lasting too. It is funny to see some of the reactions to this when I wear it: people moving closer and inhaling deeply,eyes closed,smiling ,then asking about the scent I am wearing. It induces mini-trances in some. Maybe it brings people back to some fondly remembered time in their past.
  12. I add to the chorus asking for reviews of this one please.
  13. Thanks to the ladies for including a sample of this in with my most recent order. It is wonderful..a gorgeous incensy,slightly smokey,herbal/floral scent that is unlike anything I have. It lasts a looong time too and has nice throw..detectable by others but not at all cloying or overpowering. The smoke aspect is not campfire but the smokiness one gets with buring incense. I hope I am not too late to grab a bottle of this.
  14. Replying to question under my last post here: Naa,no supplements or energy drinks..its been a life long plague,the nightmares. I have some achingly beautiful dreams too though; with odd creatures in colours I have not seen the exact likeness of in reality,amazing landscapes etc. Sometimes I am even afraid to GO to sleep when I am going through a period of recurrent nightmares. Which is why I am sometimes posting at odd hours,heh. At any rate, my sample is on the way and I am looking forward to it.
  15. I ordered a sample of this speifically for the morning glory property of nightmare banishment. I am plagued by nightmares..always have been. Anyone have feedback on that aspect of this scent?
  16. I realize I never actually REVIEWED this scent,just raved. I get soft rose,a very buttercream icing and the nuttiness mentioned a few posts up. Staying power is pretty good. The rose lasts longest while the sweet and nutty aspect fade a bit sooner,but not too quickly. I compared this to my sample of Posset's Silver Roses and while both are nice scents, here is how they differ:The Posset's rose is definitely greener and a bit sharper and the rose is very dominant. In Fleur Cremeuse,the rose is more delicate,not a rose-plus-greenery and the icing/nuttiness is very prominent.
  17. Sigh.Got my sample and as I suspected, this is love for me. I am debating on a full bottle ,instead of announcing I have already done the deed ,ONLY because I have many rose and many gourmand scents and I have 30 plus full bottles of other LPMP scents. I am verging on running out of some of those thirty odd bottles so maybe that is how I will ultimately justify another addition to the scent-harem...Fleur Cremeuse replacing something I will soon use up.
  18. Thanks for the sample ladies! This was indeed a very nicely done scent but am I the only one who detects something aquatic/sharp in the drydown? Wonder what that is?
  19. VURREH tempting ladies. I've kind of gone off extreme bakery gourmands for a bit but I LOVE gourmand rose scents. Still making up a sampler list to try,based on reviews. This sounds like one to make it to the list.
  20. Looking forward to my samples,especially Moroccan Night. Is it my imagination or do scents seem to sell out faster now than they used to?
  21. Since this topic is up top again I will take the opportunity to ask if the ladies can please re-release this or do another (not too different) version of this. It is one of my all time favorites and I would wear it even more than I do if I were not concerned about running out of it. (I have two bottles and the first is REALLY getting low already.)

    Soiled Dove

    My daughter and I were both very interested in trying this but I think we both expected more tobacco and not quite as much honey. I get mostly honey and dirt (the vetiver I guess) and the reason I didn't get a full bottle was that the honey dominates this blend. A matter of personal preference for certain,no slight intended. For those of you who love honey rich blends, this will be something you will like. There is something about it that reminds me of some of the feminine pheroblends. As for strength, I think that is fine. It is amazing how varied our responses to this are.

    I too have been wearing this so much that I had to order another bottle. At first I ordered it, as I usually do,for intent,but the scent is SOOO good that I seem to be finding excuses to "bolster my confidence" so I can wear it.
  24. My first phero-blend for me! (My husband already loves Pheroboy and swears to its effectiveness.) I was attracted to this because I already love Florida Water and was wearing a Hong Kong company's version (Two Girls Brand) of this classic when I saw the Happy Water release on this site. Of course I was interested to see how the ladies of LPMP would put their own spin on this classic fragrance type. I love this so much I have just ordered another bottle. I will compare this to Florida Water blends I know of and use: Happy Water definitely has the orange blossom,spice and florals typically found in FW blends but seems to vary in having a deeper more exotic almost resiney character underlying the orange blossoms, spice and florals,whereas FWs typically feel more cologney,having more of a lavender prescence there in the mix. I honestly do not know if it is any pheromone effect that makes me happy when I wear this or is it just that I love this combination of ingredients and am so happy to have something Florida Water like but done by LPMP. Whatever the reason, I do feel happy wearing this and it is wonderful on its own or worn with many of the orange-blossom,rose or tropical floral Love Potions or other perfumes I love so much. Staying power is moderate on me. Not the longest lasting scent on me but not one that fades too quickly either.
  25. Well, I just got back from a long vacation and seeing that some new things are very popular. Noting that, I decided not to go with the monthly sampler this time..I worry about the items I want being sold out too fast if I wait to try everything first! And so, decided on full bottles of Siberian Lust and Happy Water. Samples of a few others. I decided on Happy Water because I noticed that one while accessing the internet from Hong Kong and happened to be wearing a locally made variation of Florida Water..so trying the Love Potions variant should be interesting and I know I like that basic scent type already. Siberian Lust just jumped out at me and I keep obsessing over it, so I guess I have to get that unsniffed. I just KNOW it'll work.
