tyvey Posted October 22, 2015 Share Posted October 22, 2015 I asked for suntan lotion coconut, the steamy bikini smoked sugarcane, scented Cougar musk, and a pinch of salt, to help extend the precious beachy feelings of summer as the days grows shorter and colder. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!! This is one of those that smells well aged already - super smooth and harmoniously blended, with no one note dominating. I know I asked for a suntan lotion coconut, and yes it's recognizably coconut, but I'm so glad Mara didn't go as hog wild with the suntan lotion-y-ness as my imagination-nose. The coconut's texture is like a whipped lotion, rich and fatty but fluffy. The sugarcane isn't too smoky - bit less so than in steamy bikini, to my nose. The musk is just doing its beautiful quietly sexy confident holding-everything-together-in-the-background-and-don't-have-to-be-showy-about-it thing. It's the bass player of the scent The overall vibe is so warm and snuggly. It's "not sweaty tired gross end of the day at the beach". It's "wrapped in a flannel blanket over your swimsuit and coverup in front of the bonfire at the beach". I kept thinking "peaceful". Wet, it has a similar feel to Johnson's baby lotion of all things-- doesn't smell ANYTHING like it, just that feeling. Through drydown it stays relatively the same, other than being even more velvety during the middle parts. In late drydown - and I mean this as the highest compliment - the feeling of the smell (NOT the actual smell) reminds me more than anything of burying my face in the fur of a very clean warm fluffy blond dog. That crazy endorphin-spiking feeling and smell. So yeah, this scent is just amazingly warm and happy-making. It's addictive. It covered CB instantly and completely!!!! I may make a small bottle mix. Yum, yum. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
