    The Cold Hour of Dawn

    Cold Hour of Dawn is kind of pungent at first with a definite frostiness that quickly dissipates. The musk and the eucalyptus are running away into the distance leaving a trail of subtle iris with a cool balmy front. Balmy like big, thick, waxy leaves of a tropical plant. There is a soft powdery fizz of iris below these leaves. The musk and eucalyptus lend a light faraway chilly sweetness.

    Ten Rules For Being Human

    by Cherie Carter-Scott 1. You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it's yours to keep for the entire period. 2. You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called, "life." 3. There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial, error, and experimentation. The "failed" experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiments that ultimately "work." 4. Lessons are repeated until they are learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, you can go on to the next lesson. 5. Learning lessons does not end. There's no part of life that doesn't contain its lessons. If you're alive, that means there are still lessons to be learned. 6. "There" is no better a place than "here." When your "there" has become a "here", you will simply obtain another "there" that will again look better than "here." 7. Other people are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself. 8. What you make of your life is up to you. You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours. 9. Your answers lie within you. The answers to life's questions lie within you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust. 10. You will forget all this.

    What scents are masculine? Gender-neutral?

    DORIAN - me and my lover boy both wear this. Usually he prefers musky and or woodsy vanilla, even if he smells like a girl. lol! Though he prefers the vanilla/sweeter types they always smell amazing and sexy on him and are very fitting to his disposition. I absolutely love these for myself, but they are pretty unisex scents in my opinion: Dee Tombstone Parliament of Monsters Kroenen the Dodo King of Hearts Snake Oil There are so many more but these come to mind, and are the ones I like. My loverboy said he really liked Tombstone and so do I so I'm gonna get a bottle soon.

    EPIC BPAL Spreadsheet Thread

    heh, I got all my GC's taken care of the old fashioned way via paper and pen. When it comes to all the LE's there ever were it gets pretty complicated but I remember most of the ones I've already tried. I just figure if it doesn't stick in my mind it probably wasn't meant to be. I've been loving the GC catalog (over LE's) more than anything here recently. Outta curiosity, is there any place besides scentbase? I don't really like the style and set up of a spreadsheet. I tried to look at hackess spreadsheet but I don't have any apps that support that on my pooter. I know there is google docs I tried that before with something else , and it kept messing up. I actually have a "notebook" app on my pooter so I kinda just made a huge list of all the LES I ever tried and How I thought about em. I don't really need to know alot of details like if I have a bottle anymore or not. Any other suggestions? The scent database is awesome btw! Alot of work you peeps put in that.

    I tried this yesterday, and will definitely be gettin me self a bottle. When I first sniffed it I thought of Cuir Ottoman by Parfum d’Empire. I had a sample of Cuir Ottoman I used up completely. Definitely a unisex blend, to me its a dab of sharp yet muffled leather and a drop or two of astringent incense softened up a great deal by the musky wood and paper notes. It last forever.

    What do bottles and labels look like?

    Oh cool! Is it a new bottle? I'm not sure! I thought someone here might know if it has always been like that. Probably has. Yea, kinda like how the Snake oil bottles are different. I think the black phoenix GC is different too. its been a few years since i tried Dee, I received an imp yesterday and tried it on earlier. Freakin love it! My taste must have changed or somethin. I think I may order a bottle soon.

    The First of the Three Spirits

    I love this one, and I love white musk, yet this one isn't as crisp a white musk as most due to the amber I presume. Soft light amber, musky and slighty crisp and cold with a glittering sweetness over faint white flowers (daisy and lily types?). I love. Its one of those blends that I put on and throughout the day get occasional whiffs and wonder if its me that smells so good. Pretty, and enough throw and presence without screaming "look at me". Anyhow it reminded me of Defututa (GC) but upon comparing them side by side they both had an initial similarity but First Spirit turned out to be more musky and crisp, when Defututa had more of a "meaty" honey sweetness.

    Großvater Tanz

    Did anyone smell the Nut Crack Night Atmospheric Spray? Anyhoo, this is a dead ringer to it in comparison, to me at least. I love Nut Crack Night. Grossvater smells like roasted spiced nuts and is just all around sweet foody, buttery, bakery and puddin, more emphasis on the roasted nut part. Remember Mother Shub's Pfancy Pfeffernuesse? Its kinda like that but way better in my opinion. I really like it but, not so much as a perfume. I think I'll stick with my Nut Crack Night AS instead. Mmmm.. I love them sweet little nuts. lol!

    The Arabian Dance

    Eh, I didn't really like this so much, it reminds me of Interfector. Its weird cuz I thought I loved tobacco in blends like Velvet Dogs, I really like that one. Its just this one is a little too cloying sweet. I could hardly stand the first stages, so I washed it off. The scent that was left barely lingering on my skin afterward was much better only then I could detect more leather and faint spice. Just not for me I guess.

    Mother Ginger

    Smells like my tin of Ginger Altoids. Fresh, spicy, ginger and dusty, powdery, sweetness. Pretty simple and straight forward, I like it, but don't know if I need a bottle. I can say I definitely like this much more than gingerbread poppet though.

    Sugar Plum Fairy

    Fun and cute! Ripe tangy sweet plums floating through a dusty haze of sugar fairy powder. I love apricot, like that in Common Jezebel, this is a dusty yet sparkling scent with plenty of sweetness. Eventually the tang chills out. Its spunky, and playful with a sultry, sugary, smoky like muskiness about it. I like it.
