    Rangoon Riptide

    I bought this unsniffed because I was in love with the description. Then I got it and HATED IT!! It hit me in the face and laughed at me. Eventually I grew a set and put it on and now I can't keep my face out of my wrist. It kind of reminds me of bubble yum gum. It's sweet and a little tart at the same time and ohmygodLOVE. Seriously, don't judge it by it's in the bottle smell. It's really quite wonderful.

    Drink Me

    I love this one. It smells just like vanilla frosting. I wore it with the Candy Butcher and Loves Philosophy. I smelled just like a freshly baked cake. Seriously, it was all I could do to keep myself from taking a bite out of my wrist. Drink Me is Love.
  5. passionsast


    OMG PINE TREES! I smelled like tree all day. It was wonderful.
  6. passionsast


    I personally wasn't all that fond of the scent, I can't quite place it but something about it just doesn't agree with me. It did, however, make me sleep like a log and have the most intense dreams EVER! A keeper despite the weirdness
  7. passionsast


    100% ORANGE! Not the sticky sweet orange of juice or pulp but the in your face bite of peel. I loves it and have a feeling it may become my "signature" scent! mmmmmm
  8. passionsast


    Both in the bottle and on my skin this one smells like weakly brewed lipton tea. It's really sort of comforting but I have to have my face in my wrist to smell it.
  9. passionsast


    I guess I'm one of the few people that don't love this one. In the bottle and wet on my skin it was like the scent equivalent of a loud party. A bunch of different things trying to compete with each other. Luckily, it settled down. Unfortunately, it settled into baby powder. I'll give it another shot in the locket before swapping or gifting it away though.
  10. passionsast

    Two, Five & Seven

    I wanted to like this one. In the bottle it's very pretty and flowery but alas, once I put it on my skin it turned into something scary and awful. The best way I can come up with to describe it is perm solution. I'll try it again in my locket (:

    Snake Oil

    I can't really pick out any individual notes. I tried it both on and in a scent locket and all I get is church. It smells just like church. But it seems to mix very well with Drink Me. I also noticed that it lasted for-e-ver. One application lasted two days; even through a shower.
