    Temple of Dreams

    this was a frimp. i was hoping to get a good night's sleep but alas, besides the lavender, it's amping ylang ylang on me... instant nausea headache!

    Different smells/colors, same perfume

    Gimme 5. The imp smells of patchouli, musk and smokey vanilla... like very smooth. The 5ml is like orange creamsicle like some reviews of it.

    Sorry if this have been asked before. I've gathered that could it mostly be the Lab sends out imps that are somewhat 'blossomed' compare to the 5mls? I mean like, they would make imps and let it develop before sending it out and if you do decide to get that particular imp in 5mls, then they would make a new batch which most likely will not be 'matured' when it reaches you. I've got a 5ml of Snake Oil unsniffed and I was dissappointed with it. Now it has turned a little bit more bearable in the last couple of months. Recently I've also got a bottle of Ravenous which is so different from the imp. It feels like it also lacks depth. I love Vanillas and I find the vanilla in new 5ml are 'so vanilla'... So now I guess I have to stock 5mls in advance to let them mature before I could wear them.

    Ile de la Tortue

    This is a free imp from the lab. I'm still new and still exploring, and never heard or experience all those scents listed in the description. This turns out really nice on me. It kind of smell like gardenia (I think). Very fresh like coming out of a shower, not cloying. It reminds me a bit of Gucci Rush without the very overpowering base notes that Gucci had. This ranks 4/5. Going into the 5ml list.

    All I get was roses. I Don't particular like florals, but this is not too bad. Not over cloying like jasmines. And it dry down well. But sadly it don't last. I would say I got it to go for 4-5 hours maybe. Not a fave but will keep this imp when I feel girly flirty.

    All I could smell is pineapple! I was hoping to get a wift of the champaca (although I don't know how it smells like). It's not too bad.. very fruity... the pineapple toned down after a while, but it's still there. I keep thinking I'm wearing the Pineapple Ginger Body Lotion from Crabtree & Evelyn.

    Oh my... this is so weird I could have sworn I wanted or hoping Snake Oil will smell something like this. I got the orange note when wet. Not my fave but it dries down to a tarty, plummy vanilla like smell.... OMG i'm so in love. * adds this to 5ml list*

    Yup very vanilla and honey. I smell like I came out of a sugar factory, in a nice way. I would rate it maybe 3 out of 5. Not a must have but a keeper.

    Snake Oil

    After hearing the rave reviews, I was soooo excited to try this. I didn't even think twice to purchase a 5ml instead of an imp. Talk about disappointment. I got the nice vanilla exotic spice thing going on, but it's all been destroyed by this plasticky or sarsaparilla scent that's keep hovering around it. I do hope it will mature and that smell would go away.

    In ancient India it was believed that a specific combination of flower petals, when strewn across a couple’s bed, would amplify desire and sexual pleasure. This blend is a blend of the same floral essences, refined into a gloriously sinful perfume blend. Frangipani, with rose, tuberose, and jasmine. This turns out to smell a lot like those Indian shops at my place that sells incenses and stuff. Those florals are like major shouting for attention on my skin. And it starts to give me a big headache. Maybe I should stay away from florals. starting to notice a pattern of what florals are doing to me.

    This doesn't work for me. It gives me a headache. I think it's the Jasmine. I get the same headache from Delight.

    Hell's Belle

    This is a freebie from the lab, and it turns out really nice for me. Got a the nice flowery (I think magnolias) throughout. Sonehow it just makes me feel like pretty mischievious the whole day. At the end of the day, it starts to smell like Bvlgari Pour Femme, which I was quite fond off. But this definitely score higher as it smell more complex or deeper somehow. Going to the 5ml list.

    The Jersey Devil

    This turns out not bad. I got a lot of berries scent and it dries down to a bit of vanilla. Not a must have but a keeper.

    This one is a no go for me. gave me a headache. must be something like jasmine or tuberose of those sorts in there. i get the same effect from Delight and Rapture. Got a bit of the sandalwoody after dry down but the flowers are still amping like crazy.
  15. Thank you gingiemay. It's weird because I buy stuff that comes from the states and the other vendor also uses UPSP. but their items can be traceable in the UPSP site. For example like this: Detailed Results: Delivered Abroad, June 01, 2009, 4:24 pm, MALAYSIA Attempted Delivery Abroad, May 27, 2009, 10:17 am, MALAYSIA Out of Foreign Customs, May 25, 2009, 6:46 pm, MALAYSIA Into Foreign Customs, May 25, 2009, 6:24 pm, MALAYSIA Arrived Abroad, May 25, 2009, 5:59 pm, MALAYSIA International Dispatch, May 22, 2009, 9:37 pm, ISC LOS ANGELES CA (USPS) Arrival Electronic Shipping Info Received, May 19, 2009 I know it's sometimes hard to trace once it's out of the states, but isn't it weird that the info just remains at 'Electronic Shipping Info Received'? The UPSP site does indicate this under the 'Electronic Shipping Info Received' status : The U.S. Postal Service was electronically notified by the shipper on June 30, 2009 to expect your package for mailing. This does not indicate receipt by the USPS or the actual mailing date. The delivery detail on top shows when the item actually arrive at the post office and the date it's despatch out of the country. Any ideas anyone?
