I know - there is ZERO comparing commercial anything to LP. LP's are the bestest but here I am wondering, if maybe, Red would smell on me, the way someone had hoped Cinnabar from Estee smelled on someone else (not an ex)

 

If I were wandering around in the 80's and I smelled fantastic, and I happened to have chosen original non-reformilated Opium as my signature fragrance, and someone gushingly told me how fabulous I smelled and I knew that  that they were going to copy me, guess what I would tell them I was wearing? I would say Cinnabar!

Cinnabar was the perfume that my grandmother kept offering me because I liked Oriental fragrances, and she kept getting little bottles with her big Estee Lauder gift sets. I remember quite a few dusty bottles, I don't think anyone ever ran out of Cinnabar. 

My wildly random guess is that it didn't smell the same on the next person was because it wasn't even the same perfume. I bet the first person was wearing original Opium and straight lied. Obviously I have no idea who any of these people are, but can you imagine how pissed the first person who wore Giorgio or Lauren or whatever to high school and one month later everyone was wearing it? I'd consider keeping my signature scent choice a secret, especially a widely available commercial scent.

To address half of your original question, if someone loved original Cinnabar or Opium, they would swoon over LP Red. 

If you already know you want a FB of Leather, I'd say it's totally congruent. It would be a lethal combo, in the best sense. It wouldn't be something you'd wear everyday, though! Major date night combo, in my opinion.

in this case, I can assure you it wasn’t Opium. It was Cinnabar because I was living at home and it was my mother but it sounds weird that the dude I was dating liked my mothers perfume enough to ask me to wear it because it wasn’t “like that”. She just carried it well, and it didn’t smell the same on me.  
 

My signature scent LOL LOL LOL was the vanilla from a store in a mall.  Straight. Vanilla back then, on its own would have the guys following me like puppies. 
 

I agree about not disclosing signature scents and I no longer have a signature scent. It’s kinda hard when I have so many LP’s so I go with whatever suits my mood. But it would be nice to settle in to just a few because I am out of room LOL 

 

Leather is one of the last things I’ve tried over the years and finally have something that will draw my now husband from another level on the house ... he likes me in all foodie scents and doesn’t know it but he likes resins too and I was like, DUH, try Red. 
 

Thank you .... congruent is what I was inquiring about and yep, the last half of your response is what I want in a reaction with him 😉

So ... eons ago, someone loved the way a commercial perfume smelled on someone else, but it didn't smell the same on me.  Thanks to the last few years with all of you, I am educated on why. 

 

I know - there is ZERO comparing commercial anything to LP. LP's are the bestest but here I am wondering, if maybe, Red would smell on me, the way someone had hoped Cinnabar from Estee smelled on someone else (not an ex)

 

I am also wondering how Leather would mesh with this. I'm on the fence on FB or sample first haha.  I know I want a FB of Leather, but I think I'm wanting it in a a perm collection scent. 

 

-1- I mean, possibly?  That's such a subjective kind of assessment, though.

-2- I think Leather would be congruent with LP Red in terms of allure and overall vibe, sure.

I just realized I was in a rush to make this inquiry and did so in the review section. I’m such a dork. 
 

I don’t want to smell like a Commerical perfume, nor like another person esp my mother. 

 

but my question has been answered so thank you. That’s at least two, yes, leather would pair nicely with Red for what my intentions are.  😇

I freaking love this scent! I can't even describe it but I'll try my best. I have this is a spray. Yes there is cinnamon but it blends with the other ingredients and doesn't stand out by itself. I also get a hint of licorice even tho it's not an ingredient. It's spicy and yet grounded by the vanilla maybe? It's very different and I love it! My one complaint is that the smell isn't as strong/ long lasting as I would like but that may have to do with it being a spray. I am eventually going to try the oil and I will give that a separate review.

I want to contribute my experience here, in case people who are new into the shop decided to browse this forum and probably feel sort of intimidated, hesitant, or generally feel a bit *too late to the party*.

 

As I got this during this pandemic season, I don't have much experience using this outside, but in those times I did, I get, what they call here, "hits". This doesn't contain actual pheromones, but it does have effects!

 

1. I first noticed this when I went to my barber. I was the last person before closing, so I felt that the barber must have been tired. Anyway, he did the usual routine (I don't have a regular barber, so I don't recognize him), and the last part of it is a quick head and body massage. I wasn't intentionally looking for a hit, but I suddenly realized he was doing A LOT of the massage, like it took WAY too long, much long enough for me to notice. I thought to myself, well maybe because I'm the last, or maybe he felt I was stressed or that my body needed some physical relaxation, but it took me until I got home that I realized, hey does that count as a hit? I tell you, he has been squeezing my body and massaging, and even as I got up, he still continued, and of course I let him but I didn't realize it being a possible hit until much later.

 

2. I used this on my SO when we did a staycation one time. He said the scent smelled nice, but that's it. But well, he was *so* *into it* that evening. I tried using this again another day, and it did become a bit intense I couldn't really keep up. It doesn't happen often (especially since I use A LOT of perfumes) but the times I wore this, it never failed. A hundred percent!

 

3. Last evening, I wore this to the grocery and asked for an item there which wasn't displayed. You know, maybe they had stock but has not been arranged on the shelf yet. I asked a worker there to help me, and I'm incredibly surprised at the intense amicability and willingness of the guy there to find it for me in the stock room. It was a heavy object, it was closing time and I see he's doing some other things, but I felt like I was his super top priority (it was honestly surprising!). When he found one, it had a sort of a problem, yet he willingly obliged to get a different one for me. I don't think about these things (and certainly this doesn't happen at all to me) but in the back of my mind I thought, is this some sort of tactic, like he'll sell it to me for his own profit or something (which is ofc just nonsense), because he was just *too* nice. Only again later on when I took a shower I realized that I was wearing this.

 

In summary, THIS STUFF WORKS! It really might take you off in the wrong direction if used haphazardly, but ugh, I have never had anything that works like this to me. I don't want to run out of this stuff! I don't think it can be coincidence that these things happen to me when I wear this outside. I have had more experiences with this *but might not be appropriate here* but can I just say that this is just magic on its own!
