Re: Aspasia, Mistress of Pericles

So many essential oils smell like the "subject" was subjected to some form of torture. It was. Usually it's boiled, dried, distilled, reconstituted, enfleuraged...you get the picture. Many times the ending thing does not smell at all like the beginning thing. I think the more aromatic things (like ...

Re: The Femmes Fatales Survey Is Up!

Fabienne, may I change my vote from Judith to Sappho? I tried dear Judy on the other day after letting her age and she turned all "medicinal" herb on me. Rats!

Re: News In 2016

I am back and had to ship orders a bit out of order. I have a lot of orders just sitting and waiting for my office computer to fix itself. I had Windows 10 forced on me then was told that a lot of my drivers would not work on it. I was not told which ones. So I reverted to Windows 7 but had to take...

Re: Isotta Malatesta

Okay, I went back to Ajeve's decants and got this one, Evita, and Sappho. In the bottle Strawberry Incense. On my skin, still strawberry incense. And by that let me explain. I don't get fig, nor the strawberry fruit of said real fruit, nor the strawberry notes you smell in other Possets. I mean the ...

Re: Isabella of France

In the vial, Isabella of France smells very "campfire-like" to me and is mostly smoke with maybe another element to it. I can see what Warriortwo meant by the beachy, almost salty aspect to it. Once on my skin, I begin to detect a leather note that underlies the smoke and gives it more depth and an...

Re: News In 2016

We miss you. And I'm glad you got to vote! Women in the past worked hard for us to have that right. I'm so glad that you and your relative are getting to spend time with each other and building memories with each other. There are silver linings to challenging situations, golden gifts. I'm glad you'r...

Re: Review Requests and Random Stuff

Oh shoot! I forgot to add Wallis Simpson to my order from Ajeve! I went back and ordered Saphho, Evita, and Isotta. Shoot, if anyone has Wallis and would like to trade for a different one of the Femmes, let me know!

I too am very happy to have more time with the ladies.

Re: News In 2016

NO apologies necessary! Know that we will be sending you love and good vibes the whole time, and to your relative too.. We love you and we won't be going any where. Just remember to take care of you too! Caregivers are important, be loving to yourself. I'm actually glad there's no Spring collection....

Re: George Eliot

Wet in the vial, George Eliot comes across to me as a deep honey and tobacco fragrance. I agree with Apollonia, it's very reminiscent of Miel du Sauvage et Tabac. The first time I put it on my skin, I smelled the honey and tobacco note and it was quite strong as other reviewers have said. Then it r...
