Re: Bloomers

This is so amazingly beautiful. It reminds me a little of one of my earliest perfume loves, BPAL's Bearded Lady, but without the vanilla and powdery-ness. One of the notes goes straight to my happy place and makes my head buzz every time I sniff it, but it's hard to say which one. Overall I'd say my...

Re: The "What are you wearing today and general impressions

Beautiful cool & sunny day outside, perfect for wearing Specter with its fennel/amber. I love it when I choose exactly the right scent for the day!

Re: General Discussion of The Egyptian Collection

My order was just Evil Eye & Kyphi. Evil Eye I loved immediately - it's lots and lots of ginger, a dry spicy kind not a wet fresh-sliced kind. It was in the same ginger-family for me as BPAL's Shub-Niggurath, but not as sweet. It had a good undertone of resin, but unfortunately copal isn't a sce...

Re: The Egyptian Collection

They all look delightful! I ordered Evil Eye (ginger!) and Kyphi (love fig), but can't wait to read reviews of the rest, especially Hathor and Abraxas. :r:

Halloween At Possets

So many intriguing scents! My first planning-cart includes Will, Alice, and Feral (yay kitties!), Monsters from the SuperEgo (violet!), and Florida (generally citrus scents aren't my best, but I love oranges). I'm curious about Dora too, but what with the lemon I'm going to hope for reviews before d...

Retour Questions and Thoughts 2010

Have to join the love for St. Fabian. A fascinating rose ... Some of my other favorite past Possets that don't get mentioned much, for your consideration! Thaw - my favorite Posset of all. A sweet floral, I think with violet and vanilla, that reminds me of some beloved childhood scent I can't quite ...

Mockingbirds got my vote, but I'm glad to see Mary Shelley is doing well too!

The Spring Collection 2010

I must have the Love Song of the Owl ... I've been birding like mad lately (no owls, sadly), and I love love love florals! Now to plot the rest ... Lavender will be my Pepys of choice, I think - and I love that there's a Pepys series! I read Claire Tomalin's biography a few years ago and it was abso...
