Egg'd Mailbox Trick or Treat Inquisition 8/26/07-10/10/07: Trick
Posted 16 October 2007 - 01:20 AM
In bottle: Vanilla, custard, but not overly sweet.
On: Faint. For some reason, my skin really absorbs this, which is a first! I smell a hint of nutmeg somewhere in there, too.
Overall: I'm a little disappointed in my skin (not the scent, which is wonderful) because I wanted to be able to smell it on me more. It really gets sucked into my skin. :P
But I don't care, I'm not swapping, no no no, my pretty......

I don't want to smell like sex. Now to go find some Pumpkin Smash or Pumpkin Cheesecake!

This scent is reminicent of the delicate forals in Chaste Moon, with a dash of velvety vanilla and egg nog "ish" spices. The longer I wear it, the more it becomes a musky sweet skinscent. I get so many compliments wearing this one, it makes my head spin. Hoard worthy for sure, and that is what I'm set out to do.... Come here little eggy egg!!!
Sky rocketed to my top 10!
A super duper + 5/5

At the opening application, lovely custard.
Into first stages of drydown, metallic.
Later medium stage drydown, woods.
Later drydown, the custardy-goodness has receded leaving Sandalwood and Incense- something akin to Midnight Mass x All Souls.
So I get a metallic stage in the beginning.
Maybe I'm picking up the notes alluding to a mailbox. Metal and wood (sandalwood, I think)?

As soon as I put this on, and while it is wet, it becomes a sweet custardy scent with bits of a musky spiciness underneath- oh so lovely.
But THEN, as this dries (this is so odd), it smells exactlly like a FERRET on me! A clean ferret, yes, but after growing up with ferrets most of my childhood years, the musky smell is unmistakable. This goes very, very ferret musk with my skin chemistry. I will have to try this a different time of month and see if this changes...

In the bottle it smells custardy w/spices.
On my skin and the beginning of drydown really smells like Lush Creamy Candy bubble bar. (Love that smell)
After an hour: it smells of nutmeg and maybe cinnamon. Custardy, but slightly manly.
I like it.

In the vial this actually smells like a sweet floral and powdery vanilla to me. Not what I was expecting of an egg scent, and not really custardy to me at all...
On me, this is a very perfumey, spicy, warm, bright floral. It doesn't smell at all like BPAL's carnation note tends to smell on me. This is more perfumey than it is the smell of a true carnation or real flower. I also get a hint of something like the men's shaving cream smell that I got from Numb. Not good.
Egg'd Mailbox doesn't smell foodie or eggy to me at all. I definitely don't get the custard impression that I was hoping for and it's *nothing* like BPAL's Egg Nog blend that I love. It doesn't even have a good carnation smell to me :D
This is just a slightly soapy, intensely perfumey floral fragrance. The sharpness to it makes my eyes water. Egg'd Mailbox reminds me more of Mama Ji than anything else, if Mama Ji were more perfumey and had a strong undertone of men's shaving cream :P

Egg'd Mailbox, sadly, is a pleasantly musky floral and not much else. I don't get anything foody from this blend, except maybe a bit of vanilla in the bottle. It's pretty, but just not what I was hoping for.

Wet: Mmmm. Nutmeg, nutmeg, nutmeg! Uh, floral? What is that? Why is that in there? Oh no, is it taking over?
Drydown: Carnation with some soapiness, nope the foodiness is gone for good. Damn my skin chemistry!
If I were expecting carnation this would be nice. I do like carnation a lot, but when expecting egg custard, carnation can be a bit off-putting.

Seriously. This is sweet custard with just enough spice to be absolutely FABULOUS - MUST NOT DRINK OIL!

I was really scared this was going to smell like rotten eggs or something... but it doesn't. It's actually sort of sweet, which surprises me.
I have no idea how to describe this scent. It's soft, sweet, and a little bit foody. The only way I can see this as "egg" is if we're talking about that "sweet egg" sushi, and even then it's a little bit of a stretch. Not that I'm complaining, because I'm not sure why I'd want to smell like eggs! As it settles onto my skin a bit more, I could swear I'm smelling florals--something like carnation. And then a little later, it's sort of a toss-up between florals and the custardy scent others seem to be reporting.
I'm not sure yet if this is the scent for me, but it's definitely worth a few wearings to find out. If not, at least I should be able to get someone to swap something good for it later! :P

In Bottle: Cream and honey
On Skin: Wow, this smells Like “O” on me. How crazy! It’s sweet and yummy, and purely creamy. It also really smells like honey for a bit. I want a gallon of this. I smell vanilla and sweet love. I don’t smell egg really… not an egg I’ve ever smelled at least. Maybe a light non-boozy version of egg nog, and no spices at all. Pure creaminess… It also has a very very soft, light and gentle floral in the background. Just enough to give it a bit more dimension. The bad part… it fades almost instantly. It starts strong and yummy, and within 10 minutes my skin has drank it all up and I can barely smell the trace that lingers.
Super light throw and very, very short wearlength.

On drydown this smells like I am wearing the last wafting bits of a very spicy, even Oriental-note, expensive perfume, but it is very barely detectable because I have just baked the most amazing egg custard ever, and am carrying it piping hot from oven to table.
I realize this doesn't sound good, but it is SO GOOD. I am praying the husband doesn't deem it "too sweet" as he did with my lovely Banded Sea Snake. If Egg'd becomes an oil that acts as hubby repellant, I will just cry.

Foodie lovers should rejoice. This is yummy in the custard stage. It does make me think of vanilla custard/pudding. Mmmm... pudding. :P

Yup, as the other reviews have said, a yummy, creamy custard scent. There is a slightly cinnamony, spice cabinet base to this blend. There is a hint of honeyed creaminess that reminds me a bit of O. There is also a hint of something sweet that I can't quite identify, like a powdery floral; but this is very faint. Definitely a sweet, fun, innocent smelling oil.
Just lovely!! I love it! :P

There's a hint of sweet spice, and an almost almondy/coconutty tone.
This is a very pretty scent! It's not quite "me," but I could see layering it with caramel and vanilla and making some creme brulee....
There's something a little plasticky going on too...nothing overtly so, but I am reminded of playing with dolls as a kid.
Seriously, if you like Hony Mone, grab a decant of Egg'd to try on.
