Posts I've Made
28 October 2006 - 04:32 PMDecided to try this today as the buttery note in the bottle of Pumpkin Queen is still scaring me away.
In the bottle: Woods, cider, a vague spice and cranberries. Absolutely lovely.
Wet: I smell like a candle.
Drydown and Later: Progressively worsening candle smell. It's a very lovely candle smell, all autumny and cidery and nice but I don't want to smell like a candle.
I'm not big on room fragrances so this one will be passed on to someone who loves it.
15 August 2005 - 01:06 PMYes! A CN scent that works! Glad I got 2 bottles of this.
I scribbled down some notes while testing this, I was too distracted sniffing for any more than that. :P
In the bottle: Definitely a gypsy tent, dark, mysterious, evocative.
Wet: Strongly feminine (no delicate florals or whispiness here). Spicy, smoky, powerful.
Drydown: Rich, lovely, a dull warmth like a shot of brandy (not in the alcoholness, but in the spreading warmth through your body, this is that sensation perfumified).
Finally: Absolutely gorgeous. I can't pick out any notes (except maybe dragon's blood?) but it's all rich velvets, silk veils, gloomy crystal balls and jangly gold jewelry.
15 August 2005 - 01:01 PMHrmph. The first thing I ever ordered 2 bottles of (not at the same time tho) and boy was that a mistake.
This starts off gorgeously sweet and foodie. There's no sense of SUGAR that Sugar Skull gives me but the similarity is in the sweetness. After that, there is no similarity.
As it dries I get caramel apple and the taffy and some butteryness that doesn't smell anything like funnel cake to me. This smells more like a bakery than any carnival and while I don't want to smell like a bakery, it might work as a room scent.
And then it happens: it goes pure plastic scented food. Ugh a million times over. I don't know what it is but all of a sudden I am smelling plastic scented food. Buttery sweet plastic.
:P to Midway. And I bought 2 bottles. Bum.
15 August 2005 - 12:57 PMHrm, I don't get any vanilla or spice. There is a few seconds in the drydown when it smells like the perfume equivalent of a window frame (glass, wood) but then it starts screaming sweetness. This is definitely closer to Sea of Glass for me and thus, completely unwearable. :P
15 August 2005 - 12:45 PMEver since a meds change (hormonal stuff) things I used to love now smell awful on me (including one of my absolute favorites, Blood). Which is why I'm glad the lab threw this in as a freebie, I'd given up on anything with blood in the title.
This is a gorgeous blend of spicy dragon's blood and warm amber. It's not overpowering or even all that noticeable, just nice warm and spicy. Will keep an imp on hand for when I need a blood kick.
