    The Phoenix At Midday

    When I first apply this, I get a huge rush of warmth from the blood orange. It's bright and glowy and it reminds me of the red hot desert. But then I also really get the soothing notes of tonka and amber at the end, which is incredibly soothing. Almost reminds me of Dorian, almost. This one is a morpher but I kinda dig it!

    The Phoenix At Dusk

    This scent starts a lot stronger than I expected but it quickly mellows into something really comfortable and lovely. I see the similarities with Poison but this is much softer and lovelier. Very calming, loving it and glad I got a bottle.

    The Wiley Grasser

    When I tested this I got an overwhelming amount of pine-y floral grass. As it dried, I finally got cotton candy. All in all, it was pretty compelling in a really surprising way and I almost wish I got a bottle when I had the chance. Almost. *hugs decant*

    Oh my goodness, I love this to bits. I wish I had more than an imps worth so I could bathe in it. I get Snake Oil, Dorian and a really soothing dose of lavender. Gorgeous!!

    The Phoenix At Dawn

    This is really pretty, effervescent and full of hope. A lot like dawn, actually! I get the sweet citrus notes at the beginning but totally get a sweet, slightly creamy vanilla at the end. I really love this one.

    Leather Phoenix

    I got this little baby in the mail today and oh me oh my... this is love love love. I bought this impulsively and since my purchase, was becoming increasingly nervous that I had made the wrong decision. None of the notes really appealed to me and leather is usually something I avoid. But from the moment I sniffed this from the bottle, I could smell the leather but it was muted and the rest was almost a lovely sweet floral and a bright phoenix-y hope started to blaze within me. Wet on the skin, I get sweet green tea with a background of leather. An hour later, the leather is still there but fading quick. It is truly lovely and to me, quite feminine. I never thought I'd wear leather until today.

    Halloween 2011 Must Haves!

    I regret not getting The Gorobble! I think if I keep seeing all these raves about it, I'll want to make another order.

    What scents are masculine? Gender-neutral?

    Awesome thanks for that. Am also trying to wean my household from artificial scents. Ick! Oh and just on topic, I tried Devil's Claw on my friend and it was amazing on him. I may have freaked him out because I kept sniffing his wrist every couple hours.
  10. Well, that does it then... I'm going to have to get this in my next order.

    Snake Oil

    Imp: burnt sugar and incense Wet on skin: Vanilla, incense and sugar Drydown: The vanilla gets creamier and the incense goes into the background but it is still a gorgeous combination Dry: Even creamier vanilla and a little incense Verdict: Mine is really fresh and I will always feel the need to love it. It really reminds me of Indonesia which is a country close to my heart and so I will always smell comfort in this more than the sexy.

    Amsterdam

    Imp: Hmm Nivea Visage cream?? Wet on skin: Can barely smell anything! Clean florals... Drydown: Nivea visage cream with some citrus twist Dry: This is light and refreshing. In a skin cream way... Verdict: Still on the fence... it reminds me of Skinfood's Balck Sugar scrub. It's nice. I hope I can find an opportunity to wear it.

    Ophelia

    Imp: Mm... Rose and lily, something sour Wet on skin: The ocean and roses... Hmm... something sad Drydown: Rose... just rose Dry: Rose... again Verdict: Smells like rose. I can't do rose by itself.

    The Ghost

    Imp: Green fresh, air freshener tbh Wet: Same Drydown: Same Dry: Same but lighter Verdict: If I were a room, I'd get a bottle. Unfortunately, I am a human therefore will stick to this imp.

    The Red Queen

    Imp: Cherry, nuts Wet: Cherry and almond, sharp and almost woodsy. Drydown: Woodsy and nutty, cherry is gone Dry: Woodsy and weird fruit... plasticky Verdict: This one just isn't for me.
