Re: Nebula

This actually does have a very foggy feel...it smells smooth in the vial, definitely musks. Once it was on it went ever so slightly soapy, but not in an unwearable way, just very clean. It isn't strong, but it wafts around you and has a huge feel of airiness to it. This is going to be a rubbish revi...

Re: Serpens

Weird. I thought this would be lovely on me but it smells like milky cereal. I don't get any clove or smoke. Mostly I get buttery milk, with something strangely wheaty and organic underneath. I might be getting the same 'vitamin' smell that Lizbet is talking about, because it reminds me a bit of tha...

Re: Deneb

I've just put this on..in the decant it smelled like very powdery musk, so I wasn't too sure, but as soon as I put it on the aquatic note came out - it was a little odd at first, wet and powdery, but after 5 mins or so the stone came out and it's somehow pulled it all together. I can't really descri...

Re: Walt Whitman--Leaves of Grass

This isn't going to be much of a review because I wore it a few days ago, so I can't give you an exact breakdown.. The main thing I remember is that when I sniffed it from the decant, it smelled EXACTLY like freshly cut grass and I was absolutely blown away. When I put it on, it smelled like that fo...

Re: The Valentines 2013 Survey is Up!!!

No need to feel like an idiot. Simply put, you can ask for one free bottle of Possets Seasonals or Permanents for every 3 bottles you buy. So, if you bought 5 bottles, you could get one free bottle. Order 6 bottles of Possets and you could get two free bottles. So, it's for each group of 3. I hope ...

Re: The Valentines 2013 Survey is Up!!!

This is almost certainly a REALLY stupid question, but in order to get a free bottle, do you have to order exactly three, or is it just three or over? I'm about to order, I'm going to be ordering more than three, and I'll feel a right idiot requesting a free bottle if I'm not allowed to have one! :s:

Re: Amulet

I nearly didn't even try this one, because when I sniffed it in the vial I got the dreaded 'black leather' smell, which always turns into chlorine and amps like crazy if I actually put it on, overpowering everything else. However, I'm often surprised by Possets so I thought I'd give it a go. I expec...

Re: Anubis

I'm really waffling on this one. It starts off lovely on me..I get dark coffee and something that reads as almost orangey, to my nose (might be the fig, I can't usually smell BPAL fig at all, but this might well be different), with woodiness underneath. Funnily enough, it doesn't feel Egyptian at al...

Re: Spell 125

Yep, I agree with Gypsyjolie. This is very, very, VERY smoky. The main things I got were smoke and dankness. This smells like someone burning a big bonfire of bitter incense in a dank, underground cavern. Which, of course, is exactly what it's supposed to smell like! Unfortunately, the only black mu...

Re: Natron

When I first put this on I didn't expect to like it..it's very dry and herbal in the vial and stuff like that doesn't tend to work on me. Fresh on you get a big blast of sage and lavender, and I'll be damned if it doesn't feel salty! If you had asked me I wouldn't have been able to say what salt sme...
