Re: The Temptress

I have this weird dislike for most peach scents. Regardless if the peach note is evocative, juicy or pretty--for some reason I get this subconscious reaction like a cat being forced on a leash (I sometimes think that maybe I find peaches as just way too twee for me? Even though I'm crazy for twee sc...

Re: Mary Queen of Scots

Seconding Atropos, thanks for the review Katiushka! Mary of Scots was one of my fave monarchs (I had a phase where I was obsessively reading about her at about 13, and she always came off as a nice person who was tragically trapped in a power struggle with other aristos and monarchs). But can I ask,...

Re: Strawberry Heart (Valentines 2008)

Sounds like a scent locket would be the right thing for you. Yeah! I need to get around in getting one (especially since I'm a female, and I always worry about falling pregnant one day and I don't want to stop wearing perfume oils if that ever happens!). Since Strawberry Heart definitely smells fin...

Re: Strawberry Heart (Valentines 2008)

HNNNNG, I can't stand how my skin chemistry doesn't allow Posset's strawberries to work on me! Strawberry Heart is one of those perfumes that I KNOW works great and is well-blended. When I put it on, I can sense how the notes unravel on my skin like magic (I can smell deep, dark red strawberry (with...

Re: Frou-Frou

Okay, I kinda knew that this would smell a little like face-powder, but dangit--Fabienne has been very good at making me change my mind about certain smells and perfume notes, so I went ahead and grabbed a sample of the stuff. Unfortunately, this doesn't smell good at all to me. I can totally tell t...

Re: News In 2016

I just took a look at the Femme Fatale line, and WOW how the heck did Fabienne do all these blends at the same time as working relentlessly with all the Yule orders?? Valentine themed stuff has always been my favorite since I was a kid (I dunno why, maybe it's all the candy)! But this Femme Fatale l...

Do you think it smells nice enough to scent a room though(or would that be too much candy-like sweetness)?
Oh yes! I think it'd make a great room scent! It's so very bright and cheerful. It's sweet, but not overwhelmingly so.
Oh awesome! Thanks so much!

Re: Silver Oude

Oh man, I really like this scent. I found Arabian Dance a little smokey to my taste (and I wasn't sure where to pinpoint the Oude notes in the scent), so I wanted to get to know what the Oude note is like (especially when it's sweetened with the silver base, which is a note that I do really like!). ...

Re: Frog Princess

It's so awesome that Possets did an unusual Fairy Tale perfume! It's not everyday that a cute russian tale gets portrayed in a fragrance, and personally I think this perfume is a perfect interpretation to the Frog Princess's character. The perfume vial I got hasn't mellowed out yet (it's currently '...

Re: Osmium

Well, this one is a surprise! A very well-balanced and uplifting scent. Unlike LaaBU which is big, round vanillas, this is much softer, and on an equal footing with the leather, which is mellow, old, comfortable leather. The lime gives it a lift, and makes it perfumey, but not harsh or astringent, ...
