    Fresh, Fruity Florals

    I don't know how else to describe it, though I don't think I've tried or liked most anything else in this thread I do love The First of the Three Spirits and to me it's a very fruity floral.

    The Perfect Lavender

    Figured this was the place to ask, anybody have thoughts or comparisons on the newest lavender blends? I loooove The Air and The Ether and TKO but I haven't tried many other lavender blends and wondering what the lavender lovers out there think or what their new faves are.

    Springtime scents

    Spring! Anybody swapping their scents as the seasons change, and what are your picks this spring?

    Iris and Orris scents

    Trying to nail down the notes that do and don't work on me, feel like orris is a possible note I amp or don't like, but is there a more complete list of orris notes or easier way to search for LEs with that note?

    Trying out The Air and The Ether and not sure if it's the ambergris or the "pale" amber I'm loving.. guess I have to try some more ambergris scents!

    If your top 5 scents are... Then try these!

    Haven't been active in ages, but even when I was I couldn't even really find 10 I liked out of possibly hundreds tested. Returning to some of my faves and I love them even more with age, so any help finding new loves is much appreciated! Top 5: The Girl The First of the Three Spirits Boo 2010 Door TKO

    Against Idleness and Mischief (kinda like Door but heavier on the honey), Beaver Moon I 2013 (you have some creamy faves and this is delish) Ooh, I'll have to try those out! Thanks <3

    Alright, lets see what you lovelies think I'd like: The Girl Door TKO Black Lace Boo 2010 With Mouse's Long and Sad Tale being that one I just can't bear not to mention but have a hard time fitting in there.

    Sleepytime BPAL

    I usually use Boo 2010, but I love mostly sweeter blends so if TKO is too sweet then you probably wouldn't like Boo. (I also like TKO, Mouse's Long and Sad Tale, and Dorian.) Other than BPAL: - Try using an eye mask and ear plugs - Make sure your bedroom is completely dark (black out curtains) - Lower the temperature or use a thinner blanket if you stay awake from being too hot and vice versa turn it up or use more blankets if you shiver yourself awake (just try to keep the temperature relatively cool and stable all night) - Try to eliminate any irritants that might awaken you - Limit any tv/computer/bright screen usage before bed because it tricks your body - Take some time before bed to meditate or read or otherwise relax and clear your mind and maybe make your drowsy - Limit caffeine before bed or even just limit caffeine intake in general for a while to give your body a rest from the stimulants - Don't lie in bed if you can't sleep try getting up and only going to bed when you are tired - Work out in the afternoons it helps you fall asleep - Focus on one sound until you fall asleep (really stay focused!) like the hum of your fridge or something - Try using a white noise sleep app on your phone to help lull you to sleep - Keep as regular a sleep schedule as possible - Try sleeping an hour more or less to see if that works better for you (I find a lot of the time I only get 6-7 hours and trying to sleep more just ends with me tossing and turning all night)

    Limited editions equivalents in the general catalog?

    Ooh I might have to try Blossoms in Springtime now! And if you like Giant Vulva and Xiuhtecuhtli, then you should try The First of the Three Spirits as well.
  11. Well it's BPTP but Celeste is strong! Probably the strongest one I know. Other oils that come to mind as being very noticeable on me are Door, Mouse's Long and Sad Tale, Black Lace, and Cake Smash.

    Searching for the Perfect Vanilla?

    Have you tried layering? I lover layering Boo 2010 with Black Lace but 2010 doesn't have any lemon in it. We even have some favourites in common, but I am drawing a blank here! Boo is the warmest, simplest sweet scent I've found. Most of the sweet blends that come to mind aren't vanilla at all! My boyfriend is also fond of Boo.

    Scents that smell "motherly" and protective

    I'm not sure what you have, but Morocco and Lyonesse would be my suggestions.

    Sweet lemony floral?

    Not entirely sure if these are what you are looking for, but these are some of my favourites: Door - Golden honey, nicotiana, blue chamomile, and cistus. Kind of bittersweet herbal/floral honey, but in a really good way. Similar to Deadly Nightshade Honey, but better. Boo - Eerie billows of spun sugar, fluttering white cotton, and sheets of cream. Can be hit or miss, since a lot of people have trouble with the cream note, but the 2012 version in particular is supposed to be lemon-y, and I can say this is one of my boyfriends favourites. Snow White - A chilly, bright perfume: flurries of virgin snow, crisp winter wind and the faintest breath of night-blooming flowers. Another one that can be hit or miss, but if it does work for you it's very nice. Sweet and feminine for sure. Mouse's Long and Sad Tale - Vanilla, two ambers, sweet pea and white sandalwood. Sweet and creamy, but complex at the same time, one of my all time favourites. Xiuhtecuhtli - Copal, plumeria and sweet orange and the smoke of South American incense and crushed jungle blooms. Very nice tropical scent, light and bittersweet. Morocco - Arabian spices wind through a blend of warm musk, carnation, red sandalwood and cassia. Not a personal favourite because I don't feel it suits me, but it might be a nice middle-ground for you because it does have some warmer notes you may like, while still being feminine and creamy. Also I'd agree that Dorian can be soft and sweet, but may be more neutral than 'girly', I do love it though. And I would second Zephyr as well. <3 Er, so I hope my very biased recommendations might have something you like.

    Scent for Halloween?

    I wore The Girl for Thanksgiving, but not for any special reason, just because I love it. <3
