  1. Sweet snow and a wisp of peppermint. Really disappointed in this. I had no idea 'sweet snow' equaled pine trees... not what I was expecting at all .. so it's pine + peppermint. I'm a foodie... this isn't at all what I wanted. I'm sad... that was wasted cash. Darnit.

    Creeper Dragon

    well, I love dragon's blood so I was pretty sure thiw would be a winner for me but honestly, I got it for the name.. I mean, come on. Ok.. so it's dragon's blood and something a little edgy.. and headache inducing (I'm looking at you red musk) .. I had hoped it would be a little more mellow. I may ot be able to wear this... might go to the hubby. The red musk just has a shard floral edge that isn't working for my brain. I do get a slight whiff of honey.. it's a musky honey, not a sweet honey or maybe that is the red musk getting all up in the honey's business.. I dunno. Jury is out on this one but I'm leaning toward it ending up with the man.

    Ivory Vulva

    oh, man ... I'm really glad I got this depsite the name. I really dread having to tell someone I'm wearing a vulva scent. I had resisted all vulvas up to this point. It starts off all nutty (the macadamia) with coconut and then it dries down into this magical sweet cream and marshmallow .. this might be worthy of a back up. edited to add - When I woke up this morning it was a sweet marshmallow. I love the dry down on this

    Lovers and a Fan

    This is very light on me... I can hardly smell it. It just disappears. It sort of a sweet honey on me but it's so light that I just can't even smell it.

    Mod post: No wishlist posts in blogs

    wait.. what? We aren't allowed to have the links to wishlist in our profiles/signatures? A lot of people have that.. is this a new rule? I'm confused.

    Some Strangeness in the Proportion

    This went every which way of wrong on me. I won't post what it ended up smelling like on me because I don't want to ruin this scent for anyone.. let's just say it was not good. Bottle is going up for sale! I'm so disappointed.. it sounded really great. Stoooopid chemistry.

    Cupcake Spatter Pattern Analysis

    Ok.. this is just weird. At first I got a shot of chocolate ..then it turned into an odd plastic-y scent that reminded me of a doll I had as a kid and that was very unpleasant but then it suddenly reminded me of when i worked in a restaurant... the back area where we had the dish washer and produce prep and walk in fridge.... it just smelled kind of industrial in nature. You know like maybe some guy with faded cologne, wearing rubber soled boots and had just washed his hands with back room sink soap.. I don't dislike it even tho it may sound that way. On me, it just smells like that quiet, nice man that worked in the kitchen.
  8. I can't stand florals ... heady florals give me a headache, lavender sends me straight into hell... but I do ok with light, white florals and it's even better if they are paired with something fruity, woods or sweet ... that said, I couldn't wear most of the ones listed above by everyone else. LOL We are all so different... luckily, with the GC's you can try before buying. These are ones I consider florals in my foody world and they work for me: GC - 51, Pele, Morocco (not really floral tho but everyone should just have it), Vasilissa LE's - Tiki Princess

    Eastern Comma

    You bad enablers talked me right into this one and Question mark (which is coming in another order). I had zero interest in the Metas this year but you wouldn't shut up about them. LOL Wet, it's more about the hay.. it kinda worried me wet.. I didn't like it very much, but when it's dry.. it gets amazing...... I get a sweet hint of orange but not too tart or too fake ,, it's sweet but not cloying or anything. It's just beautiful.. subtle and sweet enough for this foodie but not so sweet that non-foodies won't like it.. it's tempered well with the tobacco/hay but they don't seem overly strong to me once it dries. I like it dry much better.. thankfully.

    Very Pink Surprise Cake

    As a foodie, this had my name all over it. I was just concerned that the cake part would go acetone on me.. sometimes that buttery note goes straight to hell on me and ruins my life. Wet, it has a hint of that death note on me.. like it's gonna turn and make me sad.. but then .... as it dries down it becomes perfectly pink, strawberry bubblegummy frosting goodness. The cake finally comes out at dry down on me but I still get a hint of that bubblegum powder, which I love, so this is fantastic. Don't be scared off by the bubblegum tho.. it really does smell like cake and frosting. Honestly, if i closed my eyes and sniffed.. it's like someone stuck a piece of cake under my nose. 12/11 - I ended up selling this off. It had zero staying power on me and I just couldn't smell it at all.. it just disappeared.. I'm starting to think I will never find a cake scent to work for me. I haz a sad.

    (Not So) Penitent (Mini) Magdalene

    Wet, it's all smoke and wood.... then as it starts to dry it becomes gorgeous and so nicely blended. It's warm and not sweet but it has enough sweetness to work well for the foodie I am. I can smell the wax more when it's going from wet into dry down. It dries down into perfection on me. It has a spicy wood scent with a light smoke in the air. I don't really get the vanilla ice cream on me. The smoke is amazing tho. How does Beth DO that?

    Renewing Vows

    Congrats on your upcoming vow renewal!! I can't imagine Morocco bath oil clashing with anything .. have you considered hair gloss? they have Morocco in that as well and also a coconut, vanilla and tiare scent.

    Traveling with BPAL

    I've taken bottles and imps in my quart bag in my carry on and no one has ever said a word to me. I carry the imps in a small plastic box to keep them together. I never check baggage and if I did, I'd never put BPAL in there. The only bottles I take are general catalog dupes tho. I'd never take limiteds.

    What Scent Is This?

    Could it be Drink Me? oh.. wait.. I was thinking Eat Me.. not Drink Me. LOL Never mind.
  15. I am someone that gets headaches around very strong florals so I appreciate when people refrain from wearing those in a group setting. I think fruity or something that stays close to the wearers skin is safe for most instances where you'll be in a group of people.
