    Best Scent to Wear When Naked

    I'm going to say try the one I'm wearing right now, it smells naked - sensual, not sexy -- Unveil the Grace in Thine Eyes (Orris, luminous ambergris, and golden amber illuminated by a sunlit golden musk.)

    Ambergris

    first applied, wet - I was almost disappointed which would have broken my heart. But, take heart dear ones, and give it time dry, not even much later -- I got a bit of an aquatic note, but more of the musky animal note I expected too dry, later -- oh this is Lyonesse =) dry, much later -- clean, wispy, animalic, musky, dreamy, EGADS I LOVE IT

    Your Salon Must-Haves!

    I havent been buying anything lately, but the demise of the Salon requires my attention! The first thing I need to know is the retail only Salons - my Haloes! I dont have backups of anything, and that might require my first. Some of my absolute favs from the Salon: Cloister Graveyard. This is my single favorite snow scent ever. Kiyohime. Favorite aquatic ever. Bat. so grey, dusky and night musky Parsifal. retail only, love love this sweet ozone scent. what I'm wishing I had right now: Sunflower. I tried this when I was a brand new newbie, and my impression was burnt. I'm dying to try this again. Judith Victorious. At one point this was on my top ten. Its golden and sophisticated and my chemistry changed somewhere and all I got was chestnut. I'd like another shot at it before its gone.

    Black Lace

    I can't believe I've never reviewed this, especially since it lives in my top ten! I do have to confess that everytime I wear it (special occasions only!) I wonder why I had loved it so much the time before. The wet version is not my favorite - clean, but not soft, its almost sharp and harsh on me. As it dries, it gets sweeter, deeper, and darker. It takes about 30 minutes to settle down and then, THEN I remember the love. I get tobacco and musk sweetened with boozy vanilla, a pretty intense scent and a definite attention getter. The drydown stays with me longer than any other bpal too =)

    What Scent Is This?

    It's definitely one of the Beaver Moons, though which one, I'm not sure. I've only ever tried the 2005 version, and that's straight cake on me. Beaver Moon 2005/Beaver'versary Beaver Moon 2007 Beaver Moon 2010 Beaver Moon 2011 I'm pretty sure that's all of them. Ooh thank you! It's definitely not the 2011 one, and strawberry doesn't seem to fit with the berry scent I'm getting--while it's a light berry, it's not a tangy berry like strawberry usually is for my nose. Curious. I have a sniffie of the 2005 Beaver Moon, which I just sniffed alongside this, and the 2005 one is a lot sweeter and cakey. So that leaves...2007 or 2010! I wish my nose was better at this the '10 was very very fruity to my nose, so my guess is the 07 based on all that

    When your favorite GC blends are discontinued

    Crow Moon is very similar to Darkling on me (though not *quite* as lovely)

    Playful Wooden Mallets

    I have to come review this one, because you're afraid of it and you shouldn't be. This black musk is smooth, warm, and sweet. This cinnamon isn't spicy so much as warm and woody sweet. The combo is lovely. I don't get the same black musk as any other blend I've tried (I agree with the above review for sure!) and this isn't the same cinnamon either. Definitely a musk for musk lovers though, give this one a chance =)

    looking for ice, storm, snow scents! pls help

    I love the snow/slush/ice notes -- heres some of my absolute favorites Snow Flakes (Yule 2006, 2009) - The radiance and desolation of winter. (very clean snow/ice) Ded Moroz (Yule 2009) - golden amber, white amber, redwood, teak, bois du rose, sage, tree moss, and snow. (This one is cold, but serene somehow) Cloister Graveyard in the Snow (Salon) - Three white musks, ozone, frankincense, mint. (probably my absolute favorite) Old Moon (Lunacy 2007) - The cold, white moon shines on frozen ground dusted with silent snow: evergreen, juniper, winterberry holly, bayberry, Viking black chokeberry, hemlock, and yew, ice-rimed, gilded by traditional lunar herbs and flowers (one of the prettiest sweetest snows) Archangel Winter (Yule 2007) - Crystalline, glassy ice whipped by a snowstorm. Piercing ozone, winter darkness. (sweet ozone) Snow Moon (Lunacy 2005) - an icy flurry over the winter blooms of narcissus, pansy crocus, dahlia, tulip, chrysanthemum and white rose, with a hint of fir and birch. (I know this sounds floral, but its not at all) of the newest blends, I loved Ondurdis and Dust of Snow best, but Colder and Colder was up there too =)

    something NOT sexy

    if I were going for something that smelled good but not necessarily alluring, I would go for the "smells like money" category. I think of these as Ozymandias, Privilege, and quite a bit of the Salon. They smell expensive, but not flirty. They smell grown up for sure, but I wouldn't class them as either side of come hither or offputting.

    Abhisarika

    gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. I was mostly afraid of the rose, but also afraid that I would get all floral with no cream and musk (a combo I simply couldnt pass up without trying!) I think the strongest note I have here is orchid. I dont smell a strong rose at all, and it must be very well blended with the orchid, because I can't pick it out at all. I think its helping to sweeten and girly up this blend though. The cream blends in with the floral to my nose, perhaps helping it not to screech floral as some can for me. The musk is tamer than I had hoped for, (I thought kasmir would be more exotic, but maybe its more of the cashmeran type musks and I just hadnt pronounced it in my head correctly? hehe), but very feminine. This is very femme and elegant, a bit brighter than I had expected, but very very pretty. Keeper! overall - super femme floral musk with a creamy touch eta: the longer this dries, the more of that bright edge its losing and the musk comes out more strongly

    A Wonderful Light

    What a wonderful scent! I get the amber heavy at first, and a thick honey orange, but I also get the soft pine whisper -- its a weet pine though, not the sharp pinesol-y pine. Since its here, I think it always should have been, it melds perfectly. I don't get the linden myself, but maybe thats what we are registering as pine somehow? overall - glowing amber, a creaminess that must be the vanilla, soft orange, soft and sweet pine.
