Christmas in New Orleans (Yule 2006)

Magnolia's the culprit? I don't think I've ever smelled it before. Cool! Whatever it is, it agrees with my skin, so I'm happy. :)

the Florentine (Yule 2006)

Coffee! Strong dark espresso. With a touch of cocoa. I'm confused because I thought this was a floral. *checks description* OK, woody, floral and foody - that makes a little more sense. Still, my skin usually amplifies florals, and I'm not finding any. As it dries it stays coffee (maybe tea as other...

Christmas in New Orleans (Yule 2006)

Wow. Stroooong! In the bottle I really didn't like this - sorry to say it smells like sour butterscotch to my nose. Maybe because I'm getting too much of it at once. But once it hits my skin, it blooms into full-strength, clear white florals! Not sure what kind, but very very pretty. I really like t...

Void Moon bottle to a new home!

Hi all - crossposted to the LJ possets community. I have a gently tested bottle of Void Moon that I'd like to swap for Possettes. I'd prefer to swap the whole bottle rather than decants, but I can decant if that's what is desired. The only scents I don't need samples of are Lavender Waters and Epino...

Ault Park

When first applied, it gives a spicy kick - as forspecial said, almost (but not quite) like clove. It quickly settles down to a spicy floral. I can smell the rose quite clearly, but it's not the overly sharp scent that rose often turns to on my skin. As it dries the spice stays in the foreground, bu...

Void Moon

Void Moon: on wet, licorice. Anise all the way, baby. My cat is trying to eat my wrist. She seems to like it. Other, non-anise impressions: generally dark, almost a mineral smell. Yes, that's it - minerals! Unfortunately this doesn't work with *my* chemistry. But if you're not opposed to anise, this...

Lavender Water Les Espices

Les Espices is the one I ordered in a full bottle, and it turned out very much like I'd hoped. The spices are not strong, but they play in the background of the lavender giving it an earthier and sharper feel. Very grounded, darker, more 'green' than the other two - but warmer, too, in a way. I can ...

Lavender Water Les Fleurs

Les Fleurs is simply beautiful. Womanly and pleasing. Confident. This may turn out to be my favorite of the three LW's. I think the relaxing quality of the lavender is what makes it feel confident. I can't identify the flowers but it is not an overwhelmingly 'floral' feel - the florals round out the...

Lavender Water Le Soleil

I was intrigued by these because ever since I started wearing perfume, I've thought of lavender as a masculine or medicinal scent. (Not that I don't mind a good masculine-style fougere now and then, just wasn't sure lavender could play any other role.) But these all sounded so feminine. They definit...
