Re: Slightly addicted

Aww, thanks Maya :hug: I'm actually in an okay spot now. I just found out I got the full-time position at work, and a small raise. But, thank you, that's very kind!

Re: Slightly addicted

Due to life issues, I was on a buying hiatus. I managed to squeeze in 2 bottles of retour, but, it took months to save, and bumped other bottles I had wanted. But, life is on an upswing, so, I splurged and got the two bottles I originally wanted, and a sample pack. I need to be careful, as perfume i...

Re: Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal

I love this. It smells very similar to a custom perfume I had made 6 or so years ago. Except better as i'm not as fond of the main note as i was. On me, the flowers, musk, vanilla and I think patchouli combine into a heady, rich incensey scent. There's a depth to this thanks to the vanilla, and it's...

Re: Fearful Symmetry

Wet-sweet banana and soft musk. Throw like whoa and maybe too sweet/much. perhaps I should have used a gentler hand when applying? Dry down 5 minutes or so, less banana, more musk, but a gentle musk. 30 min- no more banana (I actually miss it) This does remind me of bpal's Morocco. Only it's aged Mo...

Re: Maine-The Sea's Embrace (USA Collection)

Wet-pine! With what I'm guessing is the sea air behind it softening it to a less sharp note. 20 minutes later-all but disappeared from my skin. If I press my nose to my skin I catch the faintest whiff of pine and what I think is the lilac. 30 min-poof, gone. Sadness, as this was a very nice pine sce...

Re: Gauze Screen (from A Haiku collection, summer 2013)

Bear with me, I'm attempting to do this without looking at the notes. Wet- vanilla/musk/bubblegum. With floral? Drying, about 5 min on- ooh, not good. Sweet, very sweet, with an undercurrent of greenery/rotting fruit. Plus powder. Ok, the wafts from a distance aren't too bad, considering, but any cl...

Re: 4th of July!

Just an fyi, Beatrice smells lovely, even when body is going into stress because taxi shows up 50 minutes late to take a gal to work. Thank God I'm neurotic and scheduled it to arrive an hour and a half before I need to clock in. I made it with 15 minutes to spare.

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

So I wore Isabella today. Last time I wore her, the rose behaved and it was pretty much perfect. Today was warmer, and I my body temperature was higher due to running around the restaurant seating people. Apparently when that happens, the rose becomes ROSE!! And I lose the other notes. This makes me...
