Topics I've Started
14 April 2005 - 02:58 AMLupa was kind enough to get me a bottle of this from Alternate Realities in Rhodes Island and I'm so very happy she did.
I'm reviewing the scent first as I've yet to try using this in anything.
This is gorgeous, light, cooling, very green and a faintly sweet aquatic. It reminds me very much of blue moon, but a little stronger, a little more mysterious and powerful.. Calming, and lovely.
ETA: Ritually (yah I finally had a chance to use this) I've used this in centering and ritual and meditation preparation. I usually annoit the four quarters of my space and this worked wonderfully in setting up a calming, centered, guarded area. Definitely in love with how this one smells AND works.

I have to say Beth totally outdid herself in the last batch of releases. This is the third that I've tried today and every single one of them has me giggling and smelling my skin every three seconds.
A very light, fresh fruity floral in the bottle, this reminded me a younger sister to the lush juciness of Titania. Lots of pear, light and crisp and sweet, that faded a bit as some plumeria and magnolia came out. There was not a lot of rose in this, though it's in there. Sweet, beguiling, and light, this is another one I think I'm going to have to add to the "to buy list."

I was expecting this to be sweeter than it was, and was pleasantly surprised. I like sweet but I was really thinking this would go Dana O'Shee like. It didn't...
In the vial, a clean fresh tea scent. This has been the tea scent that has most actually smelled of tea on me so I was very happy about this. Fresh linen and cups of steaming black english breakfast in the morning. Something else sneaks in there after a while, a little hint of spice of ginger and black pepper. It's almost a minty undertone mingled with the tea, but the effect is gorgeous, elegant, clean, and uniquely complex. This sweetened just a little on dry down but never enough to be cloying. Overall not a terribly strong scent, though certainly not forgettable either.
Starched tablecloths, tea, and spicey breads spread with honey. Gorgeous... gorgeous...so buying a huge bottle.

My yule order came in while my boyfriend was visiting so we both had the pleasure of trying this one out. Gorgeous, tons of cherries at first, this slowly mellowed into round, full, smooth cherry tobacco scents. Comforting and warm and very very masculine. This worked MUCH better on him than me, even though I loved it. It very much conjured images of warm fireplaces and leather chairs and men smoking pipes. Totally and utterly stunning and gorgeous and evocative and comforting.
This lasted forever (one application took us both well over 12 hours and we could still smell it.) The bottle is going home with him so I can appreciate Hearth properly on his neck :P

Eee! My first first review. I'm so excited! Right... I was particularly interested in these blends as my dreams are often...odd. I tried this one out last night, a sharp herbal scent in the bottle, this was a lot of rosemary and basil smelling things for the first ten minutes or so. Very calming, grounding and soothing in an organic way. A lemony note slowly crept in, and blessed of all blessed things, didn't over power the blend as lemon is wont to do on me. A nice little touch of a creamy citrus with the herbal blend.
This was very calming and very grounding. I felt steady and calm drifting off last. A definite keeper.
