    The Infernal Lover

    Soft, sweet, and sexy. The musks and honey blend perfectly - Wow! This could be an instant favorite. This is sex in a bottle, much like smut. THe main difference is that while Smut is rough, intense sex, The Infernal Lover is passionate and slow.

    Red Rose

    Oh my gosh, I *adore* this scent! I'm not typically a rose girl per se, but the rose blended with the spicy cloves and the rich tonka... I think I've died and gone to heaven! This is sexy and sensual. I can see myself getting a ton of use out of it! This scent is *very* well-blended. I don't amp the rose like I expected to, but I'm not amping the cloves either. Instead, it's this utterly perfect, beautiful blend.
  3. This scent is very interesting - the opposite of what I expected though. It's very smoky, with pepper and woods in the background. I think this would be incredibly sexy on a man, but I'm not 100% sure about it for me on it's own. When layered with various scents though, it is incredibly beautiful. Right now, I'm using it to add even more depth to "For Men Loved Darkness Rather than Light," and it's perfect.

    Beaver Moon 2005

    I am reviewing the Beaver 'Versary version. First off, this is INCREDIBLE, with a long-lasting strong throw. It smells sweet, like a bakery - all cake and cupcakes and yummy things. I haven't smelled the original, but I adore this version. So glad I bought a bottle!!

    Scent Recs based on your PERSONALITY!

    Just curious... I'm 24 years old, and I'm 5'4 and blonde. Most people would describe me as bubbly, happy, always smiling, sweet, or cute. I have a very high energy personality and a minor shopping addiction. My favorite color is pink. I was a cheerleader in high school, and I have a tendency to come off as a "valley girl." If you take me at face value, you may think I'm a lot of fun but not terribly deep. You'd be mistaken. Get to know me, and you'll realize I was more introverted growing up - a stage I grew out of in time. I worked hard at school, and I have 2 masters degrees incluiding my MBA. I graduated at the top of my class, and my test scores were always in the 99th percentile. I love to read, and I probably spend more time reading and relaxing than partying. I'm addicted to science fiction, especially the works of Orson Scott Card and Neil Gaiman. I also love classical literature. I have a somewhat geeky side, in that I enjoy anime, video games, and computers/technology. I paint - acrylics, mostly - and I've won many prizes for my writing achievements. I'm gifted at poetry, but I prefer short stories. I'm also a tomboy in a certain crowd. I love playing poker, talking cars, and just being "one of the guys." Finally, I have a passion for theatre, film, and performing. I dreamt of being an actress until about midway through college. I would LOVE to see someone come up with a scent based on my personality, mostly because I honestly couldn't peg myself if I tried.

    Recs for Role-Playing Games (RPG), LARP and Cosplay

    I've been devouring Buffy and Angel lately (2 episodes left! ), and it got me thinking...For those of you who have seen the shows, what scents would you associate with the various characters? In particular, I'm interested in: Cordelia (both Buffy and Angel versions, so likely 2 scents) Buffy Faith Anya Willow Dawn And most of all... Spike. ETA: I don't care if the scents are LE, GC, or even HTF. I just want opinions!

    Old Moon

    Mmmmmm, this is the scent of winter. It reminds me of picking out a Christmas tree for some reason, even though we never actually did that in Florida. Pine, frost, and frozen berries... I picture Narnia to smell like Old Moon, and if I close my eyes and sniff, this is exactly what I envision.

    Cake Smash

    One sniff and I slathered away! This scent is my new all-time favorite I think! It's delicious and sweet. I love it!

    Sweet Pea and Tonka - an instant favorite in the GC. I think I'll be ordering this one soon!!

    Gypsy is heavenly! Every time I try it on, I love it even more. I get mostly vanilla in this scent, but it's an amazing vanilla. Sweet and deep, it's a beautiful scent for summer. I find it utterly intoxicating!

    Horn of Plenty

    In the bottle: Almondy/cherry scented! Wow, this is super sweet!! On the skin: Wait...what happened?? Vetiver takes over - the throw is almondy, but all I smell on my wrist is smoke. Dry down: Vetiver, with undertones of almond and vanilla. I amp vetiver, and I don't know if I like it or not. I wouldn't say I dislike it, and I'll keep my imp in hopes that it'll hook me up , but I wouldn't by a big bottle.

    The Sea Foams Blood

    This is the first time I've ever been hit by the soap note of death. I wanted to smell aquatics in this, but all I get is floral soap. Nice soap...expensive soap, even...But soap, nonetheless.

    Chaos Theory VI: Recursive Self-Similarity v7

    607 - This is an interesting one! Licorice and Vanilla, I'm fairly certain, but the more it dries, the creamier it gets. After about 10 minutes, the licorice dies down into a more subtle note, and it almost smells like chocolate and vanilla. Yum. Also, UBER full.

    Fledgling Raptor Moon

    A little woodsy, a little earthy from the patchouli, and a little warm from the sandalwood and vanilla. INCREDIBLY amazing!! Possibly a favorite. It dries on the sweet side, but I never noticed the clove or carnation.

    Godfather Death

    While testing this imp, I accidentally poured it all over myself. Whoops. Luckily, I do enjoy the scent. My shirt is stained deep yellow though, and I'm at work...haha. On my shirt, the scent is earthy and woodsy, but on my body, it softens a bit. I wouldn't get rose out of this at all if I didn't know the notes. Opoponax is most prevalent. It smells a little herbal to me, and I'd assume it'd be FANTASTIC on a man. I likely won't wear it over and over, but the smell is nice. This is a very heavy scent on me, and the throw is extremely strong. I get the feeling I'll be smelling this all night
