luna65 Posted August 8, 2010 Share Posted August 8, 2010 I'm already approaching this review from an entirely prejudiced perspective because I love the LP base, even as some variants don't necessarily work on me for whatever reason. But the line is a stroke of genius which I don't imagine any of us would dispute. In some ways Sunfire comes the closest to the original for me (which was why my "fairy tale" version of how Mara came to create the fragrance in the first place is fitting) but as it evolves it is very much its' own character in the continuing saga. YMMV, of course, but all of you desiring the famous Love Potion goodness, here it is! However, you will likely smell like a tropical cocktail at least part of the time...the sugar cane adds a really decadent aura to it for me; it's not obviously pina colada, more like something which just evokes the atmosphere. But the LP base, the original base, is present underneath the tropical elements, they blend together really nicely. Like, imagine if you're the personification of the LP base...this would be like taking a trip to the tropical isle of your choice. And I have to give it up for the green musk...I don't know if it's the same as I've enjoyed in other scents but I'm really enjoying the quality it brings to a scent: the feel of warmth with a fresh undertone, like standing in the sun with a cool breeze blowing across your skin. In the drydown, for me, it fades to a sweet veil, it lingers close but not sticky as it may strike one in the beginning. This is actually rather dangerous for me because my mind immediately goes on vacation to some torrid sun-drenched fantasy and the next thing I know it's an hour later and whatever it was I was supposed to have been working on is still not done...see, a love potion can affect you just as much as whomever you're targeting.
