I'm going to start this, but I'm still so new I probably won't capture most of this PE. If you got it, please chime in and add to this. First, the label is fantastic. Exactly what I was trying to create in terms of the feel of this. . .a woman surrounded by golden light, in a gold dress, feeling like she was put on this earth as a perfect, blessed, creation of light. Now the scent. I just got this today and I can tell it needs to sit a while. But here are my day 1 ramblings. It morphs at least a few times in the first 5 minutes. At first I get a UNE type of honey but a little lighter and brighter. I get peach blossoms/floral and a tart/sour peach smell, but then it gets interesting. For the next 5 or so minutes, I actually get a peach + liquor (sharp, alcohol) smell. I almost worry for a minute, but then it morphs again. The tart goes away and its just a glimmer as the peach totally blends into the honey so it is like the bees were feeding off a peach tree--the honey is peach tinged and truly lightens from the sexual honey that is UNE-like to something sweeter and less dense (y'all know how UNE is like thick honey) and yet, there is the bottom note of amber that is very present. Still not getting any sandalwood that I can tell but that's how well this is blended. This is going to sound crazy, but I keep getting this image of peach brandy. Or a peach honey brandy. Its almost intoxicating. I drove home sniffing my arm and I started to get a little punch drunk. And this is the one without the phero boost. After an hour, this toned down quite a bit and I was left with a much lighter smell on my arm, sort of like honey crystals on the side of the jar. The brandy quality subsided and its a deeper honey than Saisha. I think the peach blossom + peach is genius so that its not a fruity scent or a foodie scent to me at all. And it doesn't feel like an SLF like OCCO SLF does. ...there seems to be none of that minute "cat pee" kind of aftertaste to this. Though I love me some OCCO SLF and wear it regularly. On me, it seems to wear very close. I went to a womens meeting tonight and had put some on just before I went in. No one remarked about my scent and usually I get some comment or another. Again, I chalk that up to the first day after travel. Heck, I couldn't STOP smelling myself but refrained from the head dip into the cleavage throughout the meeting. This is delicious. I've collected a bunch of the honey offerings--from Pherogirl and UNE to Horny to LP Honeyed with Gotcha (which I adore) to the honey fairycake to OCCO SLF. This seems to be in the middle of the pack in terms of density and honey-ness. Not too dark, not too floral, not foodie, not too sweet and springy. . .on me, this is just right. Mara, you are amazing. You can make the same ingredients 50 different ways and they always come out different in the bottle and on each person's chemistry. Thank you.
