Radium Girl

The Radium Girl was one of the original names (circa 1919) given to the classic "big box penetration and restoration trick", wherein the magician's lovely assistant would be placed (or chained) in a box and then subjected to impalement by spears, sawing in half, and seemingly, various states of bodily part displacement. This astounding feat of stage magic is credited to turn of the century British illusion designer Val Walker - known as the “Wizard of the Navy” due to his service in the Royal Navy - an electrical apparatus maker, who also designed a straightjacket for Houdini! Don’t we all wish we could remake ourselves so easily? So we concocted an island vacation in a bottle which is sure to leave you feeling relaxed, restored and positively glowing! A beautifully breezy mix of bright pineapple, lush orchid, island gardenia and deliciously smooth coconut cream.

I just have a dab of this on but what I am getting the most of are the pineapple and the orchid. The coconut lends it some creaminess. The gardenia is there, but very light. Just like I hoped it would be. Very pretty and the color is gorgeous!

So far the brightness of the pineapple is floating on top of the other notes, it has a "resort" feel to it, sort of, in that it makes me think of lying by the pool with an umbrella drink, with the scent of flowers in a warm breeze.

Great reviews, ladies!!! I'm starting to kick myself for not going ahead and ordering a full bottle. But i still have time before my vacation!

 

ETA: Hmmmm, or maybe I don't. I might have to just kick the bucket and order it.

It ends up being a nice balance between everything; in that respect it reminds of Jo Anna's Tropical Getaway, but with gardenia.

I'm so happy to hear that the gardenia is sitting very lightly on this one.... so exciting

Well, this is one of the coconuts that doesn't like me. Everything else has mostly faded away, and I'm left with the tiniest hint of gardenia, which is nice, and a ton of plastic coconut. Too bad, into the swap section it goes.

Just got this out of the mailbox about a half hour ago. I was pulling the wand out to sniffle this one and my vial CRACKED! :o Just the tip where I was pulling out the wand...Soooo, I dashed for a 5ml spritzer and carefully poured it in and then rinsed out the vial (VERY carefully using a pipette so as not to break off the tip) with perfumer's alcohol (twice) and now I have a little perfume spray of Radium Girl! :D I will be back to review this properly within the next couple days...I will probably be too imapatient and give it a test run tomorrow though :lol:

Initially...it was just panic, lol. WHADDOIDO???WHADDOIDO???WHADDOIDO??? (AND how do I do it with one hand because I was afraid to set the vial down for fear it would leak/spill :lol: ) Afterwards, I tried to peel off the label to put it on the bottle but as I tried it crumbled in my hands - YIKES! So I carefully wrapped it in tissue and threw it away. BUT the potion IS saved! :heart:

Omg the gardenia is not raping my nose!!!! What I get is a yummy creamy pineapple/coconut version of Coconut Musk and LP Sunfire.. It def smells very creamy and tropical! I think I might love this if the gardenia doesn't come out on her rag.

This totally reminds me of another LP..
