luna65 Posted October 9, 2009 Share Posted October 9, 2009 Skelly Head Flambé Banish the chill of Fall by setting your skull on fire with this molten mix of Brown Sugar, Woods and Spices that will get your passions flowing and amp your energies into high gear. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Magickal Meanings of Ingredients: SPICES ~ Lust, love, invigoration. ALLSPICE ~ Luck, health, prosperity, money. CINNAMON ~ Male sexual stimulation, passion, lust, healing, protection, energy, creativity, psychic powers. NUTMEG ~ Strengthens clairvoyance, luck, money, health, fidelity. BROWN SUGAR ~ Attracts love, luck, sweetness, riches, lust-inducing. WOODS ~ Enhances perception of beauty, love, sensuality, money, luck, hex-breaking. NOTE: Although well diluted, this potion contains cinnamon essential oil which can be irritating to the skin. Do not use in the vicinity of the eye or other mucous membranes. Discontinue use if sensitivity occurs. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Though I rarely mention it on my Top Five, ...Everything Nice is truly one of my favorite LPMPs of all time. But I suppose the reason I don't mention it is because it makes me sad to love it so. Those of you who have a bottle (or multiple bottles - damn you dirty hoarders) or even just a sample know what I mean. I described it as "the Platonic Ideal of sugar and spice" and it is a perfect round warm sweet creation which just makes me feel whole. Like putting on a favorite item of clothing: perfect fit and feel and color and it makes you say aaahhh.So now the question is: Can I possibly feel the love for anything which I feel for ...Everything Nice?...maybe.Mara and I had a discussion regarding Skelly Head Flambe, which has a heart of mahogany, another smooth warm wood. I've always felt mahogany, like teak, is one of those "refined" woods which makes you think of heavy fancy furniture. The spice is entirely present but not overwhelming, but I think the brown sugar is more prevalent wet than on skin, at least for me. Spices will normally run rampant on me if a blend has a high spice ratio. Over time the wood comes out and it's a deep rich piquant melange but definitely without the specific woodiness or sweetness which EN has. There's a characteristic of wood, but not so specific. But I like it, I do. If anything this is more masculine than EN, which has a "golden" quality and always struck me as more feminine but a man could enjoy it too (and Quince does, for example). But if you think it's too spicy at first, let it settle down...it should in about twenty minutes or so, then judge it, because it does have sort of that same smooth warm blanket of aaaahhh, if a little more "peppy," shall we say. And for those of you in the chilly climes I think it would be a really nice cold-weather scent. But definitely dab it on the nearest XY too, because it's the kind of scent which they would enjoy if they're not adverse to spice-and-woods.And of course if you never tried ...Everything Nice but wondered what all the fuss was about, then definitely give this a whirl because it is very close to that golden moment in perfume time.*edit*After about...say...three hours wear the two are very similar.
