  1. Re: Honey, I would email the lab to see if they actually use honey if you really want to wear it. Some places do, some use frag oils.

    Pink Snowballs

    Mm, it really does smell like Snow White + pink roses. I absolutely adore this. It's creamy and beautiful!

    Beautiful and Adored

    On me, I smell just a little bit of rose, but more pear, vanilla, and gardenia with a very soft touch of honey to make it sweet. I do like it. I don't know if I'd get a big bottle, but maybe a partial or a few imps. To a casual nose, this might blend too much and smell commercial. I like my perfume to have a bit of a off-beat vibe.

    The Peacock Queen

    Wet, it smells like bruised roses. Thick and beautiful, like the ones that you sort of want to bite - although I might be the only person who has that strange urge Dry, it's faded a little. Still a very true red rose scent, with a little bit of spice and dust. I think I prefer pink roses, though! Tea roses, soft and gentle. 4:35P: Oh no! This one is gone already!

    Against Idleness and Mischief

    Warning: the label washed off this imp when I tossed it into the washing machine. I am about 98.9% sure this is Against Idleness and Mischief based on my sniffer and knowledge of notes. This is an absolutely beautiful blend on me! The honey sweet, not rich and dark, and the tonka bean does a wonderful job anchoring the blend. Generally, this is one of those perfumes that I can pick out specific notes when I want to, but other times, I can just let it blend into something beautiful to my nose. It's not like a lot of other honey blends I've smelled: there's nothing overtly sexual about it in the very least. It's definitely more of a worker bee honey, rather than a luring in the bears honey. Will definitely be purchasing a big bottle. It is literally the most perfect warm, beautiful sunny weekend day scent I've come across.

    In the bottle, this smells absolutely heavenly. It had all of my perfect notes. But maybe that was the problem? It's like how they say that two gorgeous people will make an ugly baby. On my skin, this is so incredibly masculine that I almost feel like the wrong juice is in the bottle! Surely I have not just put orange blossom honey and brown sugar on! This is man. Man, man, man. There's also something mildly metallic. Why skin, why?! I'm going to give it some time, see if the tobacco lightens up, if the vanilla cream tonka bean can get a chance to have her say, but if not, I don't know if I would wear this and I'm single, so there wouldn't be a man to try it on. Edit: I just made the saddest sound as I realized that I needed to scrub off. It'll go into my aging cellar (otherwise known as my walk in closet) for a while and we can try it again in the Fall.

    When I wear Anthelion, I read it as nutmeg...although I could see clove as well. Anyway, scent is not too important to me. As long as it isn't headache inducing, we're so good to go when it comes to ritual oils. This one has been sort of a foundation for me in the last two months. I had bought a bottle specifically for being broke but it is so much more to me. It's a strong pair of arms, keeping me from collapsing. I wear it on my root chakra and on my heart chakra, and then press it to my temples. It's not an explosion, but a steady, stable blend. It'll be okay.

    Ninon has to be one of my favorite perfumes I've come across in a long time. Wet, freshly applied, it's a little overwhelming; when I press my nose to my wrist, it's strong, but when I dab behind my ears and just let it waft a bit, it turns my entire world into a sweet, lightly lavender, honey, vanilla, and musky cloud. I'm a self-admitted lavender girl but I never would have imagined that Ninon would smell this good. It's just amazing. Originally, I thought that the sweet smell was my candy from earlier but I quickly realized that the candy had been put away and sealed up and this beautiful scent was sticking around. In love.

    Scent Recs based on your PERSONALITY!

    First off, I have a crazy crush on you now. Second off, I was thinking Wanda or Banned in Boston. And, oddly enough, the Red Queen.
  10. Milk and Honey. Oh, if there was a perfume of Milk and Honey, I'd be all over it.

    Just got Werepuppy today! I love Stinky and this is in the same family as Stinky (creamy clean baby), and reminds me of Burt's Bees Baby Bee lotion as well; it's not exactly what I was thinking it would be but it smells good. I love these sorts of scents! Something nice and gentle, unassuming and impossible to offend.

    What scents are masculine? Gender-neutral?

    The Bow & Crown of Conquest strikes me as being gender neutral. I can wear it without feeling like it's too masculine, but I would be delighted if I had a man wear it around me. Mmm, yes. Ditto Antikythera Mechanism and Miskatonic University - again, I can wear them, but man alive, it would be delicious on the right guy. Oh: I tried Antony on the ex once. That was pretty much amazing.

    El Dia de los Reyes

    Have I mention how much I love this perfume yet? Spicy chocolate majesty. I can't believe how I can smell the cocoa powder when it is wet. I'm just in love with all aspects of this perfume and I'm delighted when I put on a sweater I wore while wearing this perfume, because I get gentle whiffs around the collar. Mm.

    I really, really didn't care for Snake Oil when I tried it the first time a couple years ago. I never had too much of an interest in aging it - especially since it takes two years to really get good - so when I saw that Boomslang was similar to an aged Snake Oil to another reviewer, I thought I'd go ahead and give it a shot. I am so incredibly happy I did! It's a beautiful vanilla and chocolate scent, deepened by the teak but made nice and creamy by the rice milk. It's beautiful and like a delicious cuddle. I adore it, I really do, and when the Carnival is leaving, I'll scoop up another bottle or two, just so I can keep it around for a while.

    To celebrate her life and the joy she brought to all of us, we have created a scent evocative of bright days running through the grass and sun-warmed puppy fur dusted with California wildflowers. Wore Pa-Pow this morning: it was grassy and floral, with a nice and comfortable warmth beneath it. The grass stage was my favorite, but I'm also a big fan of I Smell Good In...Grass and I can't get enough of grassy smells. Definitely a keeper for me and will be an amazing Spring scent. Casual and pretty. My skin gobbled it up quickly but I'm very happy with the perfume, the scent, and the memorial it represents, so I happily re-slather.
