Madame X

Wet, Madame X is all rice flowers and ambery lush vanilla to me. Dry, she goes nuts (COCOnut, to be precise), and the skin musk no longer hides itself. There also seems to be some herbal or citrussy quality with this blend. Very interesting - however not a 'me' scent, as the throw just smells too mu...

Silver Carnations

Mmmmmhhhh, Carnation heaven. NEED MORE. Perfect. :love:
Nothing to add to the reviews above; on me it's spicy carnations and sugary (musky) vanilla. Silver Carnations and The Girls Love Pink Pepper share the gold medal of all blends who came with my order!

Silver Roses

This reminds me a lot of BPAL's Séance, but sharper and less powdery. While it dries, something vanillary or sugary shines through. Though I like rose blends in general, this is surprisingly not for me - just too sharp and green, I even sometimes think "onion"! :shocked:

Hyde Park

I second green tea and lemon balm, with the tea note smelling somehow soft and dry and the lemon balm fresh. Also something peachy in there. Smells like one of my favourite teas (the particular one is called "Monsoon Rain") - herbal, fresh, slightly sweet. I'm not sure if I like it now and...

Cerulean Blue (Valentines 09)

This is not your generic one category scent. This is fruity, floral and aquatic all at once, but I have a hard time recognizing different notes in this blend: Raspberry or blueberry? And what else might be lurking in there? Whatever it is, it screams PIIINNNKK!!! to me, a sister of Lush's Rock Star ...

Over-The-Rhine (Midsummer 2007)

Mmmmmhhh... initially, this reminds me of my beloved "Pfeffernüsse", German Christmas cookies, which have neither pepper nor nuts in them, but are all about cloves. As this dries, all I can smell is SPICY!! cinnamon and clove. :tongue: Then it goes a bit incensey, with a hint of amber comi...
