Posts I've Made
16 September 2005 - 01:16 AMIn the bottle: Oh, god, that smells good. Mango and papaya definitely. Also more of the berry fruits. This smells delicious. Like a wonderful mixed drink or something.
Wet: Orange as well as the mango still. And currants. With the strawberries as well, I think. Gosh, there's just so much in it. :P It smells like Starburst, that's what it is.
Dry down: Very tropical on me. Mostly the mango, papaya, guava and maybe the tangerine. This isn't nearly as complex as I thought it would be. Rather than smelling like a host of fruits, I'm kinda left as a Starburst candy. Something under it. Maybe the currant. Has a slightly astringent smell to it. Oh, no, probably the orange. Orange does that to me. Apple as well. Yeah, unfortunately, the apple has decided to come out, turn into nail polish remover and ruin the rest of the scent. At least temporairly.
Dry: Tropical fruits over the nail polish remover scent. Not the best combo in the world but not as terrible as possible. Pineapple? But there isn't any in here. No, it's the foul apricot, which also hates me. Maybe the pear, too. Why are the evil fruits coming out? Well, that died down. I do smell like a smoothie, though. Mostly the guava. I don't know. I don't love it, but I'm not sure about it yet.
19 August 2005 - 01:27 PMIn the bottle: It reminds me of aloe. Aloe and some wood. This has a pretty silver sense to it, but then aloe has also struck me as being a little metallic like in its essence.
Wet: This is more wood when it hits my skin, which could be a bad thing as a lot of the wood notes are things I'm allergic to. It does retain the metal smell, though, which is less like aloe the more I sniff it but they do seem to be somewhat related. This is like smelling one of the Zen candles that's supposed to be the metal element. It's not a bad smell at all. In fact, it's rather pretty, but I'm not sure it's something I'm going to be wearing very often if at all. I'm not usually a wood scent person, but I like the mixture between the wood and the metal. The metal smell is very strong and clear and clean. I've got a bit of a thing for clean smells.
Dry down: This does have an aquatic/ozone sense to it, but it's not as strong an ozone as some and it's not as aquatic as others. I don't get the fabric softener smell from this that most aquatics morph into on me. There's a bit of citrus in the background that I can now pick out from reading the reviews. So it's starting to remind me of some kind of cleaning fluid. One of those citrus ones that takes everything off. This does have a very water water smell to me. Not the more ozone water smell I get in some scents but a clean water smell. The wood acts as a nice background note to the rest of it, though.
Dry: On me this is more wood with some clean, citrus, aquatic notes mixed in with it. But a lot of wood. Thankfully not one that I'm allergic to, though. The longer I wear it, the more it smells like wood and less like the aquatic water scent that I liked about it to begin with. I'm torn on this one. I don't know whether I want a bottle of it or not. Because it's not, but it's not what I expected. It seems like a scent that I should give to the boy, but I'm also intrigued by just the clean of it. It reminds me of the snow notes in some of the Yule blends. This reminds me of candles and cleaning and soap and woods. I'm just so very torn about it.
10 August 2005 - 11:03 PMIn the bottle: Sandalwood and mandarin. Mandarin and I have a troubled past. It hates my skin or my skin hates it. But things with mandarin have a history of not working in big ways.
Wet: Mandarin and sandalwood. I have no clue what opium smells like so I won't be able to detect it. Maybe it's that odd herbal note I smell, though. This is very gold. Very classy and cultured. And a lot more subdued than I thought possible.
Dry down: Only now it smells a little too herby, which means it's bordering on medicinal. The mandarin is there but that herbal smell is cloying and somewhat overpowering. Yeah, not liking this too much. The sandalwood is also out of control. I usually like sandalwood as long as it's not too prevalent. This is mostly sandalwood and that herbal smell that reminds me of the smoke that comes from the legal herbal cigs my dad used to smoke on occasion.
Dry: Sandalwood and an off herbal smell. Not interested. Washing off.
10 August 2005 - 10:59 PMIn the bottle: That's surprisingly lovely although it doesn't really smell quite like anything listed in the description. I'm guessing that the really sweet smell is the iris and maybe the musk mixing with it. I really like white musks and they like me. I'm glad not to been bowled over by coconut yet. And I was expecting the hazelnut to be at the top of the scent and overpowering.
Wet: This is probably the perfect iris smell. I love irises and I've been trying to find a perfect iris scent for awhile now to no avail. Yet this is beautiful. It is fresh and yet a little tart at the edges as well. This is perfectly blended so I'm not sure that it is just the iris I smell. It might be everything mixed together. But it speaks of beautiful blooms and a little powder and lonliness. Everything I love about irises.
Dry down: And now it has a slight background note of coconut, but it's pretty faint and blended so it might be bearable. I hope so because so far this is just achingly lovely. I'm in love with the idea of having found the perfect iris blend at last. Most of the others have been off or I've been allergic to them, but this one is perfect so far. Just lovely. But now it's morphing and the iris goes away and leaves more of the hazelnut, which is an odd scent to combine with these in my opinion. It's still nice. It's just a little richer and less floral now. This is a nice light scent, though. Very young and pale.
Dry: Iris with a background of coconut and hazelnut to keep it from being overwhelming. This is lovely and full, floral without being too perfumy and just lovely.I'll have to give it a few more tests before deciding if I need a big bottle, but it sure is a lovely scent. It smells like something else but I cannot for the life of me remember what.
10 August 2005 - 10:58 PMIn the bottle: Cocoa powder in a bottle. Huh. I mean, I know Beth can do wonderful things with oils but I never imagined that Bliss would really smell like, well, chocolate.
Wet: Cocoa powder and sugar. Like when my father makes fudge. It does smell good enough to eat, but I'm not about to mix it into cookies or anything like that.
Dry down: Cocoa. I'm not anticipating this going through any really interesting stages, really. It's nice, but I'm not sure that I really want to smell like chocolate all day. I'll probably keep the imp around, though. Maybe smelling it will calm my chocolate cravings. Nah, it'll most likely exacerbate them, but it still smells really good.
Dry: Yep. Still cocoa.
