Suggestions/fantasies/ideas for new scents

I am seriously jonesing for a musk/amber/carnation/sandalwood -based scent, though I don't know what it would 'be'.. other than delicious. I actually spent the better part of an hour today trolling note descriptions of.. what, 'couture' perfumes, I guess?.. looking for a similar combination. I was a...

Yet another newbie seeking recommendations

Just as a note, don't necessarily avoid all the chocolatey possets -- I've found several that are a rush of chocolate at the beginning, but they morph into various other, more complex, scents. [I've spent the last two years working in a chocolate shop. There were some I thought I could wear to work ...

~*~ Which Possets scent is your favorite? (u can only pick one!)

:[ It depends on the day and my mood! :violin: Right now, it's Silver Carnations.. and also Scent of Angels, Haute Love, and Lamp Black. And maybe also Cadmium Orange. AND MAYBE INDIGO ALSO. [I cursed myself with this last set of possettes!] Over the winter, I layered Haute Love and Over-the-Rhine a...

The Scent Of Angels (Yule 2007)

This is a soft, baby-pure scent -- but [strangely] it has good throw and duration for me. I have NO idea what all I smell.. certainly vanilla, musk judging by how well it clings to my skin, delicate florals. It's perfumier than I tend to find a lot of possets [which is a positive, I think], and I'm ...

Naples Yellow

Pale citrus and sheer amber. It's a clear, sunshiny scent. This is the first amber I've ever met that goes a bit powdery on my skin [normally it's pure skin/amber love], though it's a beautiful enough scent that I tough it out. :] PLUS I just received a new possette [frossette?] with my most recent ...

Dioxazine Purple

Hmm. I received this as a freebie [thanks!], and figured, hey, I've pretty much rounded out my color wheel samples. I was NOT expecting grape. I'm apparently bad at obvious things. It started out smelling purple [my SO and I keep fruit punch and grape crystal light made in pitchers, and refer to the...

Lamp Black

When I first put this on, I was silly enough to do a patch with other scents. I got as far as "herbal, I like it" before I tried it by itself. It opens with black tea, and is smoothly, smokily herbal -- but what I end up with is a comforting vanilla-tobacco scent. You know, how really expe...

Cadmium Orange

Mm.. juicy tart [real] orange underpinned with spiciness, when wet. Dry, it's subtle and a little sexy -- I love woody and spicy scents. I'm not sure what I was expecting when I ordered this [subconsciously I think I'm waiting for them to smell like paint, what with pigment names and all], but it's ...

Silver Carnations

Oh, my. I usually don't like scents that can be generally classified as sweet/floral, unless it's a rose. I had an imp of BPAL's Morocco, and there was a note I adored that I couldn't put my finger on.. eventually I figured out that it was carnation. I hadn't even realized carnation HAD much of a sc...
