  1. So I just tried Hesiod's Phoenix today, and fell madly in love. Of course it's impossible to find... So does anyone have any suggestions on something similar that's more easily obtainable? LE or GC is fine. I feel like I have smelled something similar before, but I just cannot for the life of me remember what it is!

    When your favorite GC blends are discontinued

    Any ideas for a Havana replacement? I, of course, fell in love with it after it was discontinued.

    Harvest Moon 2013

    This is just...hauntingly beautiful. It starts off heavy on the rose, like a bouquet of velvety red roses. The autumn leaves are in there, just sort of floating around. But then the dry down...oh the dry down. It smells like it's part of my skin. Like I naturally smell like this gorgeous, incensey, red rose. Beautiful.
  4. Awesome! Thank you both!
  5. Okay! So I'm going as femme Jayne (from Firefly) for Halloween this year. I have most of the costume together...I just can't decide on a scent! Any ideas? I have a fairly extensive collection of bottles and imps. I was thinking maybe Tombstone or Stimulating Sassafras Strengthener? For that sort of old-west feel. But I'm not sure! Soo, any suggestions?

    Beachy, Tropical Scents

    Tiki Princess and Shango (The Master of Lightning’s ofrenda contains red apples, banana, chili pepper, coconut, pineapple, pomegranate and sugar cane) are my two absolute favorite tropical scents.

    Our Lady of Pain

    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. On me, it's all smoky orchid and dark lavender. It's not quite the perfect orchid of Great Vampire Bat, but it's definitely in the same family, and it satiates my need for dark orchid. For now, anyway...

    Delight and Consternation

    There's no sludge in my bottle—that I can see, anyway. However, I do still get the dry cocoa powder scent, though mostly only up close. Overall, the scent is a custardy white rose and skin musk scent. So, so pretty and sexy, but sexy in a way that doesn't seem like it's trying to be sexy. It just is.

    Scent for Halloween?

    Yesterday was Snow White, and today is Lick It Softly.

    What do bottles and labels look like?

    I have Blue Moon 2012 (Beth's version), and that's the label it has.

    The Gorobble for me today.

    Scent for Halloween?

    Today I wore Monster Bait: Bloody Mary and tonight I'm wearing Anne Beany (I am wearing a cute pirate costume, so I thought it'd be appropriate)!

    Smoky Moon 2012

    The combination of the inspiration/artwork and the notes made this an automatic buy for me. Champaca, oudh, and orris? Yes, please. The first time I tried it, it was overwhelmingly patchouli-grapefruit. After letting it sit for a few weeks, though, it's much smoother. Now, I only smell the grapefruit when I get close to where I put it on my wrist. From a distance, it's a sweet (but not sugary or saccharine), smoky, slightly dusty incense that just sort of floats around. It's a soft scent (in feel, not in throw; throw is strong at first), and it works so well with the inspiration.

    Spanked Revisited

    Oh...wow. So, I've had this bottle since the release last year, but I rarely wear it. That was due to the overwhelming OMGSPICY. I felt like I smelled like cinnamon candy. So it just sort of sat there in my box, all lonely and ignored. But today I was like, "Spicy sounds good!" And let me tell you. This has aged AMAZINGLY. Now it's mostly bourbon and leather on me, with the spice mixed in perfectly. Honestly, it has blended so well and is now more of a sweet-spicy rather than a straight and in your face spicy, which was a little off-putting. And it's much smoother now. The spices at the beginning gave it a rough sort of feeling. I love it now.

    What scents are masculine? Gender-neutral?

    I just passed off a bunch of man scents to the boyfriend. As far as I could tell, his favorites were Oblivion (Dark musk, wood spice, labdanum, patchouli, dark African woods, and saffron) and Absinthe (An intoxicating blend containing wormwood essence, light mints, cardamom, anise, hyssop, and the barest hint of lemon). Whenever I manage to look through what all he took, I'll make a list of his favorites and post them here.
