  1. Thank you everyone who responded. I seriously need to go through and re sniff every thing I have hahaa! I might have a decant of Jareth somewhere. I just gotta dig it up. I know that I for sure want to try the new snakes! I forget that the formulation is going to be different so its like trying them all over again.
  2. What great rec!! Thank you so much. I think I need to try De Vos Unicorn. That sounds like it would be my dream scent! I am also curious about your second one because of the vanilla cream. Yum!
  3. Hello Forum! How I've missed you. I have gone through a ton of life changes including lots of moving and a boyfriend who hates my perfume oils. (Mostly because they are different but he did complain one day that I smelled like an old lady when we first started dating and I was mortified. Ha) But I am ready to dive back in since I now have a fancy lady job! I want to try all of the new things but... I'm very overwhelmed and I don't know where to begin. There are a ton of new scents everywhere! My favorites include: Bastet Pink Snowballs Green Tree Viper (THE CARNIVAL IS BACK. WHAT?!) Dorian TKO I like fresh and girly scents or sweeter scents that have depth to them. I have also been using *gasp* commercial scents lately like Tokyo Dark Milk & Marc Jacobs Cucumber hoping that it would be a good compromise between us but I realized that it's BS. I love my bpal. Halp!

    Searching for the Perfect Vanilla?

    Ha! I think we might have the same chemistry! Tamara was nice but a touch shampoo-y as well on me! I think I am going to go on a hunt now for loosening of the obi. I like resins and the sounds SO lovely!! I thought that Kitty might have been too sweet but I think I'm going to go on a search for that as well. Have you tried the vanilla in Lady Una? Because we might be chemistry twins I wonder if you get the "cat pee" people mention.

    Searching for the Perfect Vanilla?

    Thank you!!! I've tried Dorian and is on my top 5 but for some reason The other just didn't work on me. It was too aquatic or something. *cries*

    Searching for the Perfect Vanilla?

    Hey Ya'll!! I have been on the hunt for a girly soft vanilla. People are giving recs of Liz but the smoke and incense part makes me a touch nervous. IS it prominent? I really LOVE the vanilla in pink snowballs and Sleep Now Darlings but i was wondering if you guys could think of something more spring and summery? Same girly awesome, but warmer. If that makes sense? I would be SO SO supah happy for any ideas you might have.

    Auditions, what to wear?

    Auditions are fun! Break legs! For the As you Like it audition maybe go with something light and more traditional like maybe Desdemona, Pink Snow Balls, Two Five Seven, Alice or something like that. For musicals I like to wear VERY light perfume if any because you never know if they will have you learn a dance combo right then and there. I would stick to fresh perfumes like Shanghai. Lastly for the drama I would suggest something that makes you feel grounded and confident. I usually reach for Bastet when I need a jolt of confidence. Or if it's really warm out I like Green Tree Viper. this was fun. Hope it helps somewhat!

    Self-Portrait With Puffy Stickers

    I havent written a review in awhile so please bear with me This one reminds me a bunch of two five seven with added strawberry goodness. You can def smell the grass and it reminds me of a warm spring day. The rose in this blend is more like the rose in rose red and two five seven because it is light and not so heady. This is my first bpal with the strawberry note in it and I really like it! It's sweet and slightly creamy. If you love two five seven give this a try!!

    Lick It Softly

    Why hellooo vanilla! On me this is a creamy vanilla with a touch of peppermint. I was expecting it to be really heavy on the peppermint because the only version I have tried of the lick its previously was Lick it Vigerously which is WAY strong. So this was a pleasant surprise. The throw is fairly good as I am now under a warm haze of vanilla peppermint. This is a total keeper. I cannot sing the praises of this enough. SO lovely!! Not just a seasonal scent by any means. <3

    How to make a paypal order.

    So I was going between this thread and the etsy thread and I think I might be blind Buuuuuut...how do you combine etsy orders with PayPal? I really want to get a few protos but I also want to get lick it softly and lady Una without having to pay double shipping. Any suggestions?

    CD: Misfortune Teller v3

    I bought this off etsy a week ago and now it's here! SUPER fast!!! I tried it on right out of the box but I think I shoud have let it settle first. It was a bit sharp and I was amping pachouli like no ones business. I was a bit sad but I decided to give it another go and its exactly what I was hoping for!! The released version was too heavy for me but this one is great. A very musky plum. It's warm and lingering and makes me feel mysterious. Haha. I have worn it 3days in a row now!! <3

    Lemon-Scented Sticky Bat

    I ordered an imp of this from a lovely forumite awhile back. I have to say initially I wasn't impressed. I kept it in my imp box for a bit and decided to give it another go recently. I am sooo glad I did!! It's my holy grail lemon scent! At first it's sort of a fizzy lemonade but as it dries down the icing and sugar really come out making this very much like an amazing lemon bar. (my favorite dessert!) I. Am. In. Love. I have two imps already but I think I see a bottle in the near future. I'm not sure when it's coming down so I feel like I better hurry. Lol!!

    I LOVE this scent. It's very similar to Misk U but without the initial play dough thing it does in the beginning. My husband says it smells like MAGIC. He hardly ever has that reaction to things. It's VERY autumnal though. It's summer here in Az though and it feels like I'm wearing a big warm fuzzy sweater. I will tuck it away for now. It's just too much for 100+ degree weather.

    Pink Snowballs

    I really love this one! It's the same vanilla found in my lick it vigorously decant. (which is peppermint for two seconds them straight yummy cold vanilla) I think that I'm going to buy a bottle of this before it goes away. It's so soft and feminine. I have a feeling the vanilla will age well also. That's because the first few days the rose was kinda sharp. . Now a month later my decant is a cold vanilla with a drop of pink rose petals. I'm just so in love!
