2ndStar2Right Posted December 15, 2009 Share Posted December 15, 2009 Hello everyone! I recently made my first purchase (Blatant Invitation, OCCO Red Shield, Heart & Soul, True Confessions, and LP Red) and have been having fun experimenting. I've run into a problem though with unscented Blatant Invitation. I've tried reading as much as possible through the various threads but haven't come up with quite the answer I'm looking for. Please forgive me if this is covered elsewhere and I just missed it! I know there are several topics on covering the unscented phero blends but, for some reason, NOTHING seems to cover Blatant Invitation on me....and once BI is on, it ain't comin' off! I ordered mine in silicone (as opposed to the oil) and placed a small stripe of it on the back of my hand (only about an inch long) to test it. I did make sure to shake the bottle prior to application. It stunk to high heaven! I mean BAAAAAD! SUPER BAD!!! I waited a while (about 20 min.) but the stench didn't seem to die down at all. I put some LP red right next to the stripe of BI. I was going to put the LP Red right over it but the BI stunk really badly still and I was afraid to contaminate my rollerball from the LP Red with the BI stench. I waited a few more minutes and, nothing. No improvement. The BI seemed to be overpowering the LP Red. I took the LP Red and drew big circles around the area, covering it in scent. Still no improvement. All I could smell (and all my friends around me could smell) was the BI. It was wafting from the back of my hand. One friend commented I smelled like "eau de skank" with something slightly perfumey trying to cover it up. Luckily I had planned ahead and was doing this experimenting in the privacy of my own home with nothing but close friends around so I didn't have to worry about offending everyone in a 2 block radius. Still being hopeful I continued to wait....20 more minutes....30 more minutes....no improvement. I still smelled like nothing but wafting skank smell. I decided I needed to put something directly on top of the BI so I grabbed my spray of Vanilla Noir eau de toilette from Bath & Body works (which stays pretty potent on me and has great sillage for an eau de toilette) and sprayed directly onto the BI application site. Again, I waited. 40 min later all I now had was the smell of "skank butt" (as my friend had so eloquently described it) dipped in vanilla cookie (with a continued heavy emphasis on skank butt!). Everyone (2 males/2 females) agreed it was the most vile smell they had ever smelled....EVER. So...now that several hours had passed I decided to give up on the experiment (I needed to be able to leave the house!) and hoped into the shower to get ready to go out. During the shower though I noticed the nasty BI smell would not go away! I tried one soap...nothing. I tried three different soaps...nothing. I exfoliated the back of my hand like a mad woman....nothing!! By the end of my shower, it was still there. The perfumes I applied to cover it up were gone but the BI still remained. I thought maybe it was just my imagination so, after exiting the shower I offered the back of my hand up for sniff inspection to my friends and said "see...all gone now". The look on their faces though (and how quickly they jerked their heads away from my hand) told me the truth. It wasn't my imagination....they confirmed they could all still smell the BI. Truth be told, I could still smell the BI (although not quite as potently) even 10 hours later after numerous hand washings. So.....my question(s) is....what the heck am I doing wrong? I couldn't have put on any less than I did. It was just that one tiny strip on the back of my hand! Do I have to roll my LP Red right directly over the strip of BI? Won't that make my LP Red bottle start to smell like the BI? I really don't want to contaminate the LP Red bottle. I guess I can put the LP Red onto some other part of me and rub them together but I read something elsewhere saying not to rub. Will spraying some other perfume or oil (even an LP one) directly on top of the BI effect the pheromones somehow? Is it possible I just have a chemistry that doesn't mesh well with BI? I don't believe it's just a copulins thing because I can wear the OCCO Red Shield just fine. No problems whatesoever (I do wish it was a bit spicier though...more cinnamon or something, like with the original LP Red). Also, once on.....how the heck do you get BI to come off!!!??? It's finally gone the following day but I don't want to have to lock myself indoors for 24 hours just to try to experiment again. I REALLY want to love BI! I really really do! Any suggestions any of you gals may have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance! Sarah (I haven't introduced myself on the board before) P.S. - I LOVE all the other stuff I purchased! LP Red is AWESOME! Bravo!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
