Review Requests and Random Stuff

Smooth resins and incense we have been waiting for, and the chypres we adore.

WHAT???!!! (Just kidding!)

Last time I looked it was there, but I thought you had said it was sold out a while back--but then it seemed to be there when I looked recently--oh, well! Next time!

I've been trying for days to post reviews for my yule samples, but the forum site keeps on deleting them instead of uploading them. A really beautiful one on Winter that I just don't feel like thumb typing again.

Anyone else have issues on their phones, or is it just me and my stupid android? Am I blocked?

Oh darn, Anne, I hate missing your reviews!!! I have had similar problems with uploading, but not recently.

You are not blocked. I don't know what the problem is. Never heard that happen before but there is always a first time. If it keeps on happening, I can have my forum nerd look at it.

Could anyone review Thorns and All? I have already ordered a full bottle because I'm pretty sure I will love it, but I'd love to hear someone's thoughts if they already have it.

It was pointed out on the BPAL forum, no one has reviewed Madam Xsquared. Anyone? There doesn't seem to be a thread for that.

Hi, Minh, I meant to add to my previous post as I did get a sample of Madame X Squared (but not to the 3rd power):

Madame X Squared: In the vial I smell a creamy musk and something added that reminds me of two different famous Possets: Courtly Love and also Haiku--Fangping Gauze Screen, both of which I love. Putting it on I would echo the description that it's very light but lingering. It's soft and not in your face but it does not fade quickly on me. I can smell a soft cloud around me just from putting it on my wrist. The ginger to me is very present, a fresh ginger smell rather than a spice or bakery type note--what is a touch of peach and some osmanthus in Gauze Screen and light apricot and jasmine in Courtly Love seems to be ginger and a golden type floral note--I don't know what sunflower pollen is supposed to smell like but this is not what I think of as a strong honey note, though it could be a honeyed floral. It's not like gardenia or mimosa or linden and not very floral, but just a touch. I'm getting that golden or yellow flower scent rather than lemon. This definitely is a beautiful spring or summer blend and would do very well, I think, in warmer weather. It's light and ethereal without being watery or faint.

I was curious about this one myself. I can't wait for your review!
