Memorare Posted July 29, 2015 Share Posted July 29, 2015 Amanda's Raspberry 'Roon Mmmm...raspberry and a drop of rose over creamy coconut and sweet vanilla buttercream. This is my very first PE and I have to say, it's absolutely perfect! Exactly what I was hoping it would be! I couldn't resist opening it right away so I will come back and update later if my impression changes significantly post-travel shock, but I am finding it absolutely gorgeous. There is a fantastic hit of fruity raspberry first thing that mellows out after a bit and the rest of the notes come shining through. Rose and coconut are definitely supporting players, I mostly get a sweet raspberry buttercream that makes me want to purr! The rose is just a hint and keeps it from being "OMG foody!!" (not that there's anything wrong with that, it's just not usually my preference.) And the tartness of the raspberry keeps it from veering into that shrill level of sweetness that can trigger my migraines, just as I hoped. It reminds me of the raspberry note in Determination Potion, which I love. It is a very mood lifting potion for me (and not just because of my post office travails trying to get it into my grubby paws, haha!) Something about it just makes me smile every time I get a whiff. My evil master plan for Rasperry 'Roon is to wear it paired with a "half lollipop" of Beth's Blushing Milkmaid and I know it is going to be freaking perfect! Thank you so much Mara!
