Re: The Wickedest Idea of All

I must say that I was slightly disappointed with this scent... it's not that it's yucky, it smells odd like a kind of bubblegum I had as a child. Not exactly bazooka but maybe a cinnamon gum? On me this smells just like bubblegum and spices... Just not me sadly :( I was hoping for another chocolate-...

Limoncello: La Dolce Vita "Neapolitan Lemons spike the Limoncello here, with the most creamy of panecotta (a triple cream custard with a subtle vanilla and not too sweet). All this is accompanied by a homemade almond biscotti." It smells like lemon meringue pie :D with a extra dose of lemo...

Vanilla Tea today "A beautiful blend of black tea and Mexican and Bourbon vanillas." Hmm, this started off with a blast of really nice vanilla but now the tea is kicking in and by kicking I do mean kicking :P I hope the vanilla will beat it down a bit more with age as it's a very one sided...

Re: Perpetual Motion Heart

Wore this one for a full day today so I'll try giving the best overall review that I can. Firstly, I don't have the original to compare it to which makes me a bit sad as I'm curious, but never mind. When buying this I was kind of hoping that it's be a sweeter version of BPALs Arana (Which is "V...

Re: Favorite Classical Music

I love operas but they aren't as palatable to general public so I don't listen often (the love potion is hilarious and so is the marriage of figaro). Hehe, I was just going to say The Love Potion! I was in a semi-professional choir when I was younger (In middle school so about 13-14) and we actuall...

Re: Dance With Me

I tried this totally fresh from the post office but it is still exactly as it says on the bottle! A nice base of vanilla with grapefruit on top. The vanilla in this is kind of sweet-fresh and not milky/creamy and it really sweetens out the grapefruit nicely. The grapefruit is most definatly of the y...

Re: Victorian Romance (Feb 2014) Review Circle

Whee the possets are here! Also it seems like my two poppet packs were quite busy on the way here and left me with a extra litter of poppet-puppies ;) thanks! So, quick sniffing review of the scents I got (I promise a proper review once I try them on properly) Chocolate Incense- Mmm, it's chocolate ...

Re: Victorian Romance (Feb 2014) Review Circle

Yay my Possets are waiting for me in the mail! I'm just waiting for it to open and I'll go pick them up ^_^ just in time as well as I'll be gone from home for a week house/cat-sitting for a friend in another town... so I think I'll just have a quick sniff at the bottles and pack a few to go with me ...

Silver Ginger today, it's a bit like Dorian from BPAL only with ginger instead of lemon, so I really love it and will get a bottle or two in my next order for sure

I'm getting the following and I'd love to post reviews of them as soon as possible (I'm planning on doing reviews of my whole perfume collection some time in the future... that will be a huge project but it needs to be done, so this will help me avoid pile-ups a bit) Chocolate Incense Dance With Me ...
