Victorian Romance (Feb 2014) Review Circle

Post by Maya » Fri Feb 14, 2014 1:57 pm

The review circle continues to be a great way to ensure that we are getting as many perfumes reviewed as possible. To that end, I would like to keep this going. Please note: to join the review circle, you do not need to have perfect words or perfect images. All you need is to tell us your impression of a perfume and how it wears for you. Some people will love a perfume while others will hate it. Having the rounded comments is very helpful for others seeking reviews (whether for now or for retours down the road). If you would like to commit to reviewing a perfume, let me know in the comments which one/s you want to cover and I will add you to the list. More than one person may sign up for one perfume (the more the merrier!).

Here is the list for this release:
1000 Roses--Petticoats
A Cheerfulness of Herbs--Hill78
Bitter
Bloomers--Narcisse
Bouquet in the Snow--Narcisse
Chocolate Incense--Boudicca, Shirel
Committment--Boudicca
Dance With Me--Maya, Jackieo, Shirel
Daring--Narcisse, Shirel
Dead From Love--Petticoats
Forbidden Delight--Boudicca
Grande
Illicit Affair--Maya
Perpetual Motion Heart--Narcisse, Shirel
Ringlets
Silver Pomegranate--Maya, Jackieo
Softly--Petticoats
Sparks
Sweet Arabia--Boudicca
The 13th Love Note--Boudicca
The Arrow of Love--Maya
The Fruits of Heaven--Jackieo
The Height of Impropriety
The Velvet Riding Habit--Petticoats
The Wickedest Idea of All--Shirel
Wings of an Angel--Jackieo
If you can't be a success, be a spectacular failure!

You are a delight and joy forever. :hrt::

I see we have some common ones. Of course, I had to go beyond five so I'll have more than that to add, but I decided not to go with my typical "grab one you wouldn't normally just to try it." I figured I would wait until more reviews came in to decide which non typical one/s I would gamble on.

I also ordered the common ones - wings of an angel, chocolate incense, silver pomegranate. I'll try to review but do not want to commit...

I am really looking forward to chocolate incense. It has this potential to be this smokey sexy chocolate. but it has amber which can make it go really weird.

I am SO anxious to see comments on Fruits of Heaven. It is one on my list that I am eagerly waiting reviews on. I'm glad to see that someone nabbed it. Wings of an Angel is also on my list to find out about.

By the way, if anyone has the original Scent of Angels and ordered Wings of an Angel, I would really like to know how they compare.

I posted some first impressions of Chocolate incense (swoon) and Forbidden Delight. The one with the red musk, 13th love note?, that one is lovely but somehow rendered me unable to even give you quick impressions of Commitment and Sweet Arabia. (Or of it.) I only smelled those from the bottle, though Sweet Arabia is smelling like a contender.
I will try to add more tomorrow. :heartrise:

Well I have Bloomers, Bouquet in the now, Chocolate Incense, Dance w/ Me, Daring, PMH on my list so I will happily review those if no one else has those on their list. Florals aren't my normal thing, but I think this Witch's Tit of a winter has me craving the allure of springtime promises.

I added you to the ones no one else had claimed up to this point. :hug:

Oh holy heck. I just tried a dab* of 13th Love Note on one arm and a dab of Sweet Arabia on the other. HUGE throw!! They are different (from each other) but to me have a similar vibe. My nose is surely fatigued and I will try to properly review later. But I think these would appeal to those who like Samrkand &/or maybe Shah Whosit and Mumtaz (?) Mahal. Sorry, I always mess up the name of that one. Anyway, not saying they even smell much the same -- it's the vibe I get.
sexy, exotic.
