Re: Charles Baudelaire--Les Fleurs du Mal

(Purchased a sample through Ajevie for retour!) It's interesting to me that other people got things like leather and anise from this one... I got mint. For certain, I can pick out all of the main notes mentioned in the description - sage, lime, and honey, but I think this may be one of those blends ...

Re: Hortus (Bosschaert the Elder)

I wanted to love this one but unfortunately any time a fragrance is mentioned as being "green" it goes to soap on me. Boo. :( However, beyond that, I definitely get the linden blooms, and I would describe the overall scent as bright - it's definitely very warm with a touch of spiciness. It's a flora...

Re: Cruel Spring

Purchased a sample through Ajevie for retour! I think the description needs to be changed back to the original; I got this because of the Lily of the Valley in the description and it just wasn't there... in fact I wasn't sure I had the right scent until I came and checked the reviews here! I don't a...

Re: Blue Shift

Purchased a sample through Ajevie for retour! I have to completely agree with the review above. I loved Blue Shift in the bottle (the mint really pops and blends well with the violet), but once I put it on it amped to something "perfumey" (the sage, maybe?) and eventually dried down to a cool, blue ...

Re: Tussy Mussy (Valentines 09)

Testing for Retour, decant from Ajevie: I had to test this two days in a row because I was reading the reviews above and kind of wondering if I have the same scent! But hey, it happens. :) This is one of those exceptionally rare perfumes that tells a story as it ages, from the first gathering of flo...

Re: Christine de Pizan

Testing for Retour, decant from Ajevie: This is definitely not a scent for the faint of heart; it's bright and loud and powerful!! I originally picked it up for the citrus note but it turned out to be more bitter than I expected, like citrus rinds instead of fruit. In the bottle I mostly get what I ...

Re: The Knot Ring (Valentines 2011)

Testing for Retour, decant from Ajevie: Oh man, this scent is unassumingly stunning. If you love Arizona Sage and Honeycomb, this is the paler, softer version! I admit that I am a sucker for skin-close scents, and this is certainly one of them. Definitely agree with it being unisex, thought I don't ...

Re: 1000 Roses

Testing for Retour, decant from Ajevie: Maya's review is spot on for me. I got a decant of 1000 Roses because I'd heard a lot of people rave about it but I'm also getting a lot of rose soap from this one. Even in the bottle I get a lot more green (stems and yes, green apple) than rose. Recently snag...

Re: Chastity Belt (Valentines 2012)

Testing for Retour, decant from Ajevie: (And I just want you all to know that Maya is not crazy - I also get a sort of cinnamon scent in the background of this one!) In the bottle this is exactly what I wanted - mint (spearmint!) and violet and a little jasmine. Then I put it on and poof! Mint is al...

Re: Valentine Retour

Is it possible to extend the order period for Retour a little longer? I still haven't received my decants from Ajevie and her site still says preorder so I'm assuming she doesn't have them to send out yet. (One of the best things about Possets has always been the fact that I didn't have to feel rush...
