Whoopsy Daisy cake smelled heavenly in the vial but didn't work on me. I am trying this one hoping for a different outcome. The label is my favorite from this month. Mara, I remember you telling me (after I mentioned that some blends with vanilla go wonky on me) that there are different kinds of vanillas (food type vs. scent type maybe?) which one is in this?

I am totally with you on this. Whoopsy did the same thing to me. Weird because I love all the other cakey ones. Maybe this one will work better for both of us.

This one actually works better on me than Daisycake. I wore it out on the town tonight! YMMV, though on me this ends up being very much like delicious gooey cake batter and the flower just accentuates the sweetness.

:Emoticons0086: ...sounds more and more like a Calii scent after all :)

This one in the bottle is definitely more foodie than floral...the floral is complimentary. I haven't worn it yet but it smells great in the bottle!

This was very floral on me, it reminded me of Rosie's Wedding Cake and Aloha P for some reason. I don't get any cakes notes yet, I think my skin is amping florals big time right now, so I think I should wait a few days. My skin is always weird after my period, so that could be the reason why I don't get any delicious cake.

I wore this one back on Wednesday and I think it's divine! I LOVE the daffodil. It jumps out of the vial all sweet goodness...my husband said it smelled like caramel cheesecake to him, lol. I get the sweetness but the daffodil stayed prominent and eventually became a yummy creamy delight...This one's going to be a favorite I can tell!

This one does work better on me than Daisycake. It is way cakier where DC was way daisy-er. Like Victoria said it reminds me of Aloha P a bit (not sure how since that one is a lot of gardenia...I think).

Hmmm...I think it would be great with Gotcha! I'm not over the moon with this one right now but I think it will have a big following!!

Oooh, this is nice! This is how it would smell if you were standing next to a white wedding cake adorned with flowers. A perfect combination of white cake and daffodils. It's light and foody but as it drys down, it gets deeper and more like floral perfume. It's not old ladyish, though. I like this for spring!

Oh, I had such high hopes for this one. I was hoping that it might become my replacement for Whoopsie D (when I eventually run out), but unfortunately this one does exactly what Aloha Pumehana did :( I think it's the buttercream that goes a bit haywire. It totally dominates the scent & has an almost maple syrup type quality. I don't get any floral notes from this at all :(

It's so weird about the buttercream.. Some buttercream works for me but others don't. For example the buttercream in La Fleur and BBM and even RoseButterCream water - is beautiful , but for some weird reason this and Aloha P turned all weird and overly floral and rancid.

Wet, I really like this. The buttercream is thick and rich. the daffodil is green and fresh. It is a little sharp but so far no stabby headache. I will update after the drydown. So far it's a rare floral that I might actually wear.

 

 

update: Dry the floral aspect really dies down and blends with the cake. I love this! Color me surprised. Perfect for Spring. I am going to do a proper slather now.

Wet, the floral didn't work for me- it was a kind that I personally don't like, heady, magnolia or gardenia like. Within about half an hour that has completely vanished and it's thick and creamy, reminds me of A Lick of Cream.

Lucky! MIne stayed in the heavy gardenia/floral department.

Okay I woke up this morning to the most amazing smell. It was this from yesterday! And i figured out the floral is dead on OCCO Green. So despite the fact that I get a headache while the floral is crazy, I am going to wear this again today just for the drydown.

The same floral doesn't work for me. I was thinking maybe it's a white flower thing, but lillies and orchids work on me.

This is really cuddly! With all the comparisons to Aloha Pumehana, I thought this would be a little heavier-wearing, but it's very light. Cake-y and light. So far, only a teeny-tiny hit of floral. I'm really happy with how this is wearing. It feels like it wants a snuggly phero, but I don't know if it's strong enough to cover Cuddle Bunny. I suppose my next choice would be Gotcha!, since it has a real snuggly vibe, too. Or maybe even H&S. Hmm... Can't get my nose off my arm for some reason... ;)

I was scared of this one since it smelled a little like smoked meat when I first put it on. So weirddd. Fortunately it dried down and definitely reminded me of Aloha Pumehana, but with a floral ring to it that lasted longer than the buttercream.
