Penis Admiration Novel Ideas for Secret Amusements III: 1/19/10-4/30/10

In the imp: The sweet tonka and vanilla are top notes, with a touch of the lilac as well.
Wet: Tonka and yummy vanilla are being slightly tempered by the lilac, and there's also a hint of a light wood as a base note.
Dry: There is a touch of galbanum, but it's not too bitter and it's keeping this scent from being too much of a floral candy, but it's really not that foodie. The lilac is more obvious as it dries down. This is a good sweet springtime scent; in the dry-down it loses the headiness of the foodie tonka and vanilla, and surprisingly becomes more of a light sweet floral, but always with some richness to anchor it. The smokey vanilla note is just wonderful. For a masculine name, this is rather girle, but in a good way. I like it a lot and must get more.

Unfortunately, lilac and I don't get along...

wet: this is a bit more floral once applied... but then it just vanishes! all the vanilla and wood just disappear leaving only a faint sweet floral.
dry: as this dries the notes re-emerge, this is more of a sweet, creamy wood scent on my skin. not much throw but decent staying power.

I was worried about this one because woody scents often don't work on me. When wet, I stopped worrying about the wood and thought "Uh oh - FLORAL." It isn't that I necessarily object to floral scents - in fact, there are some that I like very much. It's just that it isn't what I expected here. Ahhhhh but the dry down is so very satisfying. It's subtle and creamy and sexy and I'm going to hoard as much of this as I can.

Wet on my skin, kettle corn. Huh? This is, by far, the weirdest smelling perfume I've ever found.
10-15 minute drydown - Creamy vanilla lilac. Ok, that's better. That initial scent was something else...
1 hour drydown - There's something kinda addictive about this one... I keep sniffing my arm.
6 hour drydown - There's just something inherently comforting about this one... I think it's the vanilla/tonka combination - it's very warm.

Quite lovely. Definitely keeping my decant. Might possibly want more. I already have a BPAL lilac blend that I like a lot (Ashlultum), but this one is sufficiently different that it's probably okay for me to have both!

After 30 minutes or so, the scent opens up and literally blooms on my skin: creamy, woodsy, warm and yet fresh at the same time thanks to the lilac note. Really lovely, and even though it has very decent throw, this is ultimately a subtle blend (provided you don't amp lilac to high heaven, I suppose).

I find it trying it out, that this blend and Gladdener of All Hearts have something in common: skin smell. Where Gladdener smells like a baby's newly washed head, PA smells like a different kind of washed head. It's a newly washed penis scent, if you've ever poked your nose around a man's showered penis like I have, it's got that smell. :) There is also another note I like around there, but this note I have only experiences in a Eris Tilt-A-Whirl blend (#83). It's a sort of metal skin note. Pink and grey colors come to mind in describing it. It's metal with a bit of salt and skin. Ok, a manly skin smell, but it does mimic how a penis smells...like the skin of it. Very odd and interesting.
After this skin scent, I can make out lilac and smokey wood on the dry down. It is a very pleasant scent. It's the mature version of Gladdener of All Hearts, the talc replaced with woods, the lavender with lilac, but the feeling of warm clean skin still exists. I like it a lot!

Wet: Immediately gets warm and woodsy, and then the vanilla starts to shine. It's certainly smoky, but creamy at the same time. Then the lilac starts to kick everything else in the face. And then... it's powdery Play-Doh. WHAT.
Dry: Okay, I think the Play-Doh stage is passing. It's now more of a creamy, spicy lilac. It's beautifully sweet if I sniff lightly an inch or two above my hand, but if I stick my nose right in it and huff, it's less sweet and more floral, even borderline herbal. This may just be the power of suggestion, but it still gives me the feeling of sweaty sex.
An Hour Later: Pretty much the same, although it is edging towards rancid butter territory. Yay funky skin chemistry.
Overall: One of the better lilac blends I've tried - I like how it's not fresh, pretty lilac, but creamy, sexy lilac. I'm worried about it going bad on me, though. This will get a second test in a few weeks.

On: Thick, heavy, creamy vanilla with lilac and galbanum. Mhmmm... almost good enough to eat (but I'm happy it's only an "almost", as I still have issues of smelling like something I would like to bite into XD). As it dries down, the creamy notes recede just a little and let the lilac come out a bit more. Niiice.
Later: Creamy, but non-foody and slightly smoky vanilla and lilac. I like this. And I have to keep the decant for the name alone (telling people I'm wearing this is even funnier than talking about Sacred Ho XD ).

But soon, the vanilla fades back behind lilac and tonka, and the scent becomes strange and curdled and schizoid and it doesn’t work at all. I don't know how to describe it, other than it's a jarring disconnect between the feel of two sides of the blend, as if mixing orange juice and milk (but instead mixing lilac and tonka), and two good things make something gross. :huh?:
Verdict: Lilac and tonka are both notes I really like in other contexts, so I always expect to love a blend like this. But the effect of them together on my skin has been consistently weird and Penis Admiration is no exception. Sort of like moldy maple syrup. Distinctly off, faintly nauseating.

Normally lilac isn't a scent I gravitate towards, and my impatience with the blend before caused its aforementioned removal from my stash. But, tastes and scent chemistries change, so I pulled out my decant today to give Penis Admiration another try. Man, I wish I had kept the bottle! The opening/wet stage is definitely lilac-dominant, but my now more-seasoned nose can detect the vanilla and soft wood in the background. The latter two notes unfurl further as Penis Admiration dries, with a tiny bit of galbanum peeking out every once in a while to ground the blend just slightly. Then the tonka slips in, giving such a sweet tint to an already beautiful blend. Penis Admiration sticks close to the skin, but I wouldn't say it has weak throw--more like the kind of smell you want people to come in for a closer sniff, not for it to run out and hit people with its scent.
For having a name like Penis Admiration the blend is incredibly feminine. I must hunt down a bottle!

Okay, it seems like I just death matched these two, but I'm glad I have a bottle of HGM, and one on the way for PA. There's room for both, and they're quite nice layered, too.
I got my decant of PA for the name (snicker), but I really like it as a sexy warm, but not slutty, perfume. It's just one of those feel-good scents, and fine for wearing at home alone in my PJ's.

ETA: after an hour there is a spicy wood scent mixing with the lilac and cream yummy.

Wet: Tonka, vanilla, lilac, and just a hint of wood. It reminds me a little of baby oil's scent.
Dry: This one doesn't have too much longevity, as after 6 hours, I can only smell the vanilla.

Ok, so I adore vanilla and the like (tonka/benzoin) and lilac is one of my very favorite florals so I got myself a bottle of this unsniffed. Lilacs are very evocative for me, my great-grandmother had a huge lilac bush in her yard that I used to play in. It was a castle, a secret hideout, anything my little mind could dream up. When she died, my mother took a cutting of that bush for our yard. Now that my mother is gone as well, I'm going to take a cutting from her plant for my yard. It's a living heirloom. In bottle, it's very creamy and vanillic, yum! I can just barely get a whiff of lilac. On, it's glorious vanilla! The lilac blooms quickly and this is a very languid, cozy scent to me. Luckily I don't get the idea of penises from this or it might damage my psyche considering my scent memories of lilac XD A very springy scent that reminds me of my childhood.
