Re: Pink Festivus

Happy new year! Pink festivus is bright and yes, very "pink!" To my nose, it's more strawberry than raspberry, but it's a delightful sweet fruity candy-like scent. Sometimes these sweet scents can be too cavity-inducing, but the myrrh in this one really balances it out and gives it a real sense of ...

Re: Review Requests and Random Stuff

Cracked open my SECOND Yules order (!) and once again, over the moon. Super glad I trusted my gut and bought a bottle of Empress Cixi, gorgeous! Chypre d'Hiver is indeed exactly what I hoped Yule Romp would be (tips hat to Katiushka!), bright orange and evergreen, and a rare citrus that does not co...

Thanks so much Atropos! I know it's super-long but I just got so excited! I'll later retest them and put the reviews on their supposed threads! :hug:

Re: Review Requests and Random Stuff

Hai guys! I just gotten my first Yule samples (seriously, Fabienne has been so amazing, I applaud her hard work!). I've gotten myself Peppermint Pig, Frog Princess, Lady and a Baby Unicorn and Silver Oud! Now, I know the vials are just fresh off the package and probably don't have time to really shi...

Re: Pavane (Faure)

WOoooah, how could I have gone for so long without smelling this perfume?! I admit, I was worried about wearing spicy scents because my skin tends to amp them (and then make them smell sweaty and rank even after a shower). But I read how it's got a silvery base AND it's advertised with one of my fav...

Re: The "What are you wearing today and general impressions of it" thread :)

Have you, by any chance, changed your soap? Other factors can affect skin changes, including recent change in diet, or hormone level changes. It is always so frustrating to me when something doesn't work all of a sudden. It's great when it goes the other way though. It's very likely that it's my ho...

Re: Yule 2015!!!

WOW! There's SO much variety that it's awesome (and oh my god, the Frog Princess perfume! It's an even better homage than how I imagined! And it's got coconut!), and there's even pink musk, carnation, and brown amber notes in the collection (and ooh, is that more bourbon notes I see? EXQUISITE). Gre...

Re: The "What are you wearing today and general impressions of it" thread :)

This morning I tried to wear Maggie (which was one of my fave perfumes for a long while). But suddenly for some reason my skin turned the marshmallow notes into 'Cotton Balls and Toilet Cleaner'! :gaah: I have no idea that marshmallow can go that astringent on me, I seriously had to hurriedly scrub ...

Re: What Do You Want For Yule?

Ooh, wow Warriortwo--that guy definitely looks like the smouldering type! (*Daaayyuuumn*). It's also a good idea to have a little option a scent that's versatile for spring and winter (especially since I know people that definitely live north of the Equator, but occasionally do get sick of 'wintry' ...

Re: What Do You Want For Yule?

Thanks! I haven't been back in Spain for a long while, but it's amazing how the Spanish must-haves during the holidays are: ALMOND EVERYTHING (just kidding, we're also really into orange-flavored doughnuts and chocolate. Though occasionally some towns are lucky enough to get treats from local conven...
