Goddessinjapan Posted April 9, 2014 Share Posted April 9, 2014 (edited) My order arrived today!! Just one week to get to France! I ordered Empathy Potion, Garlands and Lace, Cougar Potion, and Papal Purple with Heart and Soul. Here's my report: Before my Narcissistic-Personality-Disordered soon-to-be-ex got home, I slathered on some Cougar Potion and took the bus to downtown Paris, walked around in crowds of tourists and went to the bookstore. I think I slathered too heavily for indoor use...one guy covered his nose and moved away. I don't blame him...I thought it smelled too strong, too. But I got smiles from a group of guys outside the cafe in front of the bus stop. I put my coat on for the bus ride home so as not to cause offense. Hopped in the shower and washed that all off, sprayed on 4 or 5 sprays of the unscented Empathy Potion along with my regular perfume. Within 5 minutes of walking in the door, my husband offered to give me his entire summer bonus, "...because I understand that you'll need some cash to get started on your own". And told me I HAD to take his bank card in case I wanted to go shopping (?!) and handed me 20 Euros in cash, "...because you are always taking the bus, and you should be able to take a taxi tomorrow". Um, could be the best $85 + shipping I ever spent. The dog acted goofy, too. Fortunately I didn't get such empathetic self-effects that I said let's call off the divorce! Anyway, could be coincidence, but the timing was certainly interesting! A couple of questions: -how much should I be using from one of the small trial vials? I couldn't really figure out the best way to apply it, so turned the little vial upside down against my skin and made 5 or 6 long swipes. Evidently that was too much. -from the descriptions I thought I was going to love the smells of Cougar Potion and Garlands and Lace. No. Both of them have some top note that smells really bad to me. It gets better after several hours, but there's something I really don't like...kind of cloyingly sweet, like dead flowers, but more artificially-chemmy smelling. Any idea what that might be? Is there anything the same in both? I didn't think so. Could it be vanilla? Or maybe one of the pheromones that's the same in both? Of course part of my problem was putting too much on, but there's something in both that Isn't a nice smell for me. I got 2 free samples, plus fantastic rainbow crayons...such a neat surprise! The samples were Brother's Brew (stinky! But interesting.) and Bridezilla...which for some reason I keep wanting to go back and keep smelling. I'm not sure I like it, but I must have gone back and smelled it 6 or 8 times to check. Never had THAT happen before with a perfume. Before I ordered, I thought, "why would anyone want to buy 10 different perfumes every month?" Now I think I get it. And, of course, I already put in another order!! This time (following the recommendations of forum members), I ordered The Big Easy, which has Teddy BB in it. I got a full-sized spray, but it sounds like it's a very herbal-fresh scent, so maybe I won't run into whatever it was I didn't like. I also ordered the Newbie Sampler, plus trial sizes of Crayons: Gamboge with Levitation Potion and Unbridled, which has La Femme Noire. Um, FUN STUFF, guys!!
