    FORMULA FFSK7: Strawberries and Motor Oil

    So Kaylee is my faves, and despite the fact that tea roses is SOLIDLY a death note, I got her anyway. Fresh it is all the strawberry juice- not candy strawberries, not fresh strawberries, definitely strawberry juice. On dry down (still fairly early dry down - if it changes I’ll update) it is a fairly balanced blend of slightly sweetened strawberry/strawberry juice, tea roses and cream. Strongest to least strong in that order. I get no motor oil. This is very pink- which makes sense from her tiered pink dress, and extremely girly. I generally amp tea roses but it is behaving pretty well, so this may actually be wearable for me (normally it amps like crazy and gives me a migraine). So if you like some fruit and roses with a little cream mixed it, definitely worth the pick up. I can see her wearing this with her dress, so in that sense it is spot on.

    Oceanus Procellarum

    This is great, one of my favorite aquatics so far.smells oceanic (but not beachy) and is neither cologney nor soapy. It is like being in a boat with the breeze from the ocean in your face, and land far off in the horizon. i am pleasantly surprised.

    Trying aquatics now, so hit this up... and maybe somewhere in there is a faint aquatic. I’m overwhelmed by honeysuckle and then lilies in that order. The notes are very true and all I can smell. A little too floral for me though.

    Champagne Lace

    Something in here smells horrible on my skin. I can’t get it all off and it is making me sick. The lace scent has gone rancid on me and is topped with extra dry champagne. I literally despise this on me. i don’t know what the death note is, but ughshdbjdh.

    Zombie Moon

    So, this is extremely close to F@!K (okay or however that is spelled.) The Cherry note reads to me exactly the same (and I like it from the other scent too.) however instead of the fluffy meringue, there is a faint creaminess and then a sort of dry sand scent. It is faint and does not overwhelm the cherry but sort of serves as a backdrop. This is surprisingly pleasant.

    This opens with a strong herbal lavender- but quickly becomes almost cola like labdanum with only a hint of lavender. My skin eats this fast, but it is. A pleasant scent, and taught me what labdanum smells like. Undecided if to keep or not.

    Rose Recommendations - which blend is for me?

    Most recently I tried the tea roses and lace and it reminded me tea roses are not my dish. They smell somewhere between old ladyish and sort of sick sweet and not like fresh roses (at least on me) almost stinky rose. I reaaaally like run of the mill roses. And wild roses. I love those but they seem rare in perfume.
  8. Deceitfuldescender


    So I never thought I would like aquatics as most I have tried do not work for me. But I have a few that do work and maybe someone can get me in line with some similar ones? (Trying to expand my perfume horizons). Sad Ted Behind Wall (rain - freshwater and strawberries) Waiting (asphalt, rain, lavender) Selkie (can’t remember notes) None are perfumey which is requisite but smell strongly like water.

    Rose Recommendations - which blend is for me?

    I have rose problems. I despise tea roses in perfume. It just reads awful in me. I love the smell of most garden variety roses fresh on the bush. Wild roses and big beautiful pink and yellow and peach roses make me happiest. Do those exist in bpal? If so, how can I discern it (besides avoiding the note tea roses forever.)

    Tea Roses and Lace

    DForgot I amp rose, and tbh tea rose is like my least favorite. So on me it is ROSE with a background of faint lace and cognac. It isn’t as bad as I thought it would be, but it also isn’t really a scent I want to wear. Oh well. I am sure this is lovely on those who don’t amp the crap out of rose.

    The Golden Hour

    On me this is just perfumey amber with a sweet and creamy vanilla. On dry down it is pretty nice, but this amber is too perfumey to me.
  12. Deceitfuldescender


    My skin does not like this. Great in the bottle, on my skin, very very dry woody smell. I think it is the tobacco. Very dry not sweet, not chewy. And this is what I have period. No coffee or leather or sweets. On the several hours long dry down a little honey comes out. This was a huge fail on my skin chemistry.

What's something you want or look at, but always talk yourself out of buying (or for whatever reason never purchase)? Are there any subscription/subscription style boxes you have an interest in? (This could be a very specific sub like sihaya or lootcrate or an idea/concept you're interested in without a specific company in mind, like "book related candles"). Coffee or Tea? Anything from David's Tea(esp the new Halloween) that catches your eye? What are your DISO BPAL dreams? 10/12/18 Spooky stuff! D'ya like... ghosts? Skeletons? Aliens? Bigfoot? Unsolved mysteries?

How do you feel about buttons, pins, and badges? 10/11/18 Can you link to your non forum wishlists/goodreads if you haven't already done so? If you're a yarn user, what kinds of yarn do you like best? Are you witchy or like witchy things like incense, sage, palo santo, crystals, tarot, altar supplies, candles, etc.? Whatcha like/need? So I do tarot and I am sort of reexpirementing with wiccan stuff but I am going slow and really kind of newbish right now. Do you need decanting supplies? Sample vials? Pipettes? Standard labels? Ah, vials maybe as I cannot find mine. But not a ton. 10/10/18 Let's get specific about this knitting thing! Do any of these items/styles appeal? I've numbered these so you can just reference numbers if you like! 4 If your witch was able to obtain digital media that you could not access (TV, movies, books, etc.), is there anything you have been in search of for quite a while? If yes, what devices do you use to play such (i.e. Windows, Mac, etc.)? Books, epub. Is there anything you want from Japan? Some kind of food, cute stationary, fandom merch, maybe you collect lucky cats, anything! Yes. Just yes. Despite no longer being a sort of anime Otaku fangirl of the worst kind, I still hold a super specila place in my heart for all things Japan.

I do not think so. Booze, yea or nay? Favorite kinds? Uh if it is unusual or homemade, yes. Otherwise no as I rarely indulge. Anything but anise/licorice. Knitted stuff? Need/want anything specific? Colors? Fingerless gloves, other non wearables. Jewel tones, monochrome. Feelings re: Lewis Carroll/Alice in Wonderland? Love it, hate it, meh it? Enjoy it. As well as other authors or things that base off that universe mythos. Are you thinking of participating in NaNoWriMo this year? Any merch or pre-Nano supplies you might want? I am not, and no thank you. I just recently discovered MoonMagic -jewelry with a focus on moonstones but also opals and labradorite. They currently have a sale. Anything that stands out to you? (moonmagic.com) All in silve and moonstone or opalr: To the moon and back necklace, spiraled full moon ring (no idea on size though) Do you like quirky socks? Any preferred styles (ankle, thigh-high..)? I mean, sort of. Texture is most important to my feet so decorative socks are usually too rough or textured. But if you find very soft ones, ankle high. 10/7/18 Would you like a postcard from the fancy schmantsy St Pancras Renaissance hotel that I'm about to stay in several times over the next month? (Witches, I'll happily send one to your witchee if they would like it) Sure, who hates mail? Idk where I wojld put it afterward though. Kiddo will prolly steal it. Does anything catch your eye from Future Primitive, including oos things? It seems like everything here has sulfates in spades so lal probably too harsh for my sensitive skin.

    Pumpkin Rice Pudding

    So this is cinnamon and pumpkin dominant on me (NOT pumpkin spice, just cinnamony butteryness) witha backdrop of creamy rice pudding. At long dry down the creamy rice pudding takes over and then sort of morphs i to just a creamy sweetness with not really any pumpkin left, and only a dan of cinnamon. This is VERY foody. It is unrepentantly sweet and smells like sweet food period.

    Mouse's Long and Sad Tale

    This is actually quite nice on my skin, a very smooth mix of the whole. I guess I didn’t know what sweet pea smelled like but it is a sweet and decidedly unstinky or headache inducing floral. The vanilla and amber and sweet pea overlay again unpowdery sandalwood that lays as a backdrop. A well rounded sweet scent that is neither foody , nor resinous, nor floral but something in between.
