09 March 2007 - 01:56 AMI ordered an imp of this on someone's recommendations... I forget whose... But I currently LOVE them. Whomever you are that recommended this to me, I LOVE YOU!!!
OK, that shameless whatever that was aside...
This is so sharp and crisp and clean and utterly delicious. I have a hard time knowing what I'm smelling, but of the imps I ordered and the frimps they sent me, this is a new favorite, definitely out of the bunch, if not a new top 5! And I've got no problem with staying, nor am I getting grapefruit off of this.
08 January 2007 - 12:50 AMThis is my first review, so lets see if it's any good.
It took me awhile to get around to my frimp of Phobos, but I was looking for something different to wear today, so I put it on just before I rushed out of the house this evening. It was VERY Lemony... but with something else. I asked DH to smell it, he immediately said "wrist" (haha) but upon pestering, he said "Baby Powder".
It took me a few minutes to put "Lemon" to what I was smelling, but once it clicked, I knew that's what it was. It reminded me of Lemon Madeleines, and I just really liked it. As I came home about 90 minutes later, I said, "This smells like Lemon Verbena"... again, good, because I ADORE Lemon Verbena... it's my fave home scent from B&BW, and it's in the "Couvent de Minimes" Hand cream I'm using. But then I sniffed my wrist closer... pure powder. So "around me" it smells of the Lemon Verbana, but when I get down to sniff where it is on my skin, it's a very soft Baby Powder scent.
I LOVE THIS. I ADORE the smell of baby powder; it has always struck me as being very feminine, soft, gentle, without being overwhelming, so to have one perfume hit so many of the notes I love as well as this does is awesome. I'll be buy a (few?) 5ml of this one to add to my meager collection.
And like some of the other reviewers... I was surprised to see the connection to fear here. Me and fear don't get along well... but me and Phobos are hitting it off like feinds!
ADDED Jan. 23:
In the imp: Citrus. Yum... :P
On Skin: Upon immediate contact, I get lemon fumes. It's sharp and nose clearing. I thought I smelled grapefruit but it's more lime than grapefruit... which I think may be the lemon verbena.
On Drydown: The lemon smell tones down a bit. I get a bit of a ginger smell to it. It's very sharp. It's a very 'clean' sort of smell, crystalline and a tad bitter.
Verdict: I'll see what it smells on the boy. On me, it's a bit of a lime-ginger smell, too sharp for me to be comfortable with. I was hoping for more grapefruit... but I guess I should stick to Mania and Baobhan Sith for that.
funny that you said lime and ginger, because I thought I might have smelled those, too, but dismissed both when I hit on the lemon verbena... perhaps my dismissal was premature! :D
