    Does anybody have a picture of the Stardust bottles?
  2. A separate list for non-BPAL/BPTP fragrances because when they were combined, it was too long to scroll through! A few of these were extras in swap packages; the others are scents that I swapped for to try or tried on my own.

    yay, Threadless :)

    [This is mainly for me to keep track of the shirts I own.] If you're interested, Threadless is a clothing site that prints its own t-shirts and also some long-sleeve shirts and hoodies. People submit designs/slogans and users at the site vote on them... and the best ones get printed. Pretty cool, huh? This is my street team link [here]. I absolutely adore my Threadless shirts! They're so unique and they make great gifts!!

    The Hamptons

    The Hamptons is pretty similar to the smell of a cosmopolitan: it was tart, cranberryish, and boozey. Initially I was in love with the way it smelled on me... sourish and fruity, but with a hint of alcohol... a cosmopolitan that was mixed with less alcohol and more fruity stuff (I don't like my drinks strong). However, after about two minutes, the alcohol note really came out and it was almost like feeling I had too much to drink! Not a good feeling.

    Litha 2006

    My first impression of Litha on me was spicy/herbal sweet room fragrance. A little later on I got the honey, but it's sadly faded away. Later still it smells a bit citrusy. For me this isn't too much of a floral scent as it is spicy/herbal/sweet and I actually get fall from this rather than summer... maybe that's because of the oak wood and ivy leaf.
  8. jazlyn


    Queen was pretty potent at first and exuded power at first (rawr!), but the pepper made me sneeze (twice). It was a sweet floral with a kick, but within a few minutes it dried down to a amber/resinous/powdery scent, like O... but a little spicey.
  9. jazlyn


    Salome is powerful almond extract and jasmine in the imp. On it's the same, but then the almond quickly starts to fade away, leaving me with a whole lot of jasmine... so much that it's headache inducing.
  10. jazlyn


    Whoa there! In the imp Lurid is reallly potent, kind of like rubbing alcohol. On... this seems sort of masculine and clean; I get the ozone and lavender, but also some pine with a bit of sweetness. Oh geez this reminds me of Snow Bunny and/or Snow Moon. Not for me.

    The Great Sword of War

    In the imp The Great Sword of War was almost overwhelmingly chocolatey and musky with the barest hint of mandarin (mmm, mandarin). At first when it's on I get the same thing, but as it dries the chocolate smell fades and it gets muskier and more orangey! Sweet! Okay, I was thinking "this is for the swaps" initially, but now... this may be a keeper

    Strawberry Moon 2005

    Oh no... Strawberry Moon smells like plasticky/artificial strawberries with a bit of cream (like Scratch 'n' Sniff stickers). There's also a green herbal/mintyish methol-type note that's clearing up my nose a bit as I smell this. Like a few other people have said, this scent is similar to Pink Phoenix, except that this isn't as sickly sweet and doesn't have as many notes, therefore making it less complicated.
  13. jazlyn


    Absinthe is a light green scent on me... buds on trees and yellow green leaves unfurling, the scent of lemon drops and mints in the same container.--->The lemon and mint are most noticeable at first, but a little later I can smell more of the anise and the woody/mossy/herbal somethings. After a bit, all of the notes are kind of jumbled together into one very faint scent. This is kind of nice but, I don't think I'll be wearing it as a perfume.
  14. jazlyn


    Zorya is mostly jasmine, a big bouquet of night-blooming dew-covered flowers, and a very light musk. It's pretty, but it doesn't strike me as being a particularly special scent.
  15. jazlyn


    At first, Kyoto is a pretty nice blend of creamy cherry and bright sandalwood... not so much the star anise. However, after being settled in on my skin it begins to smell a bit more like star anise; also, the creamy cherry has changed to cherry blossoms... which is fine since I'm not a fan of creamy sweet scents. The cherry blossoms and sandalwood together smell beautiful, but I'm not liking the star anise (which is growing stronger).
