    Cold Moon

    The Full Moon that shines over the frost-rimed heart of winter. Traditional lunar oils combined with glittering snow flowers, soft breezes and frozen ferns. Wet ~ this has that aquatic scent that Beth is wonderful at creating. There is a sweet floral just behind the aquatic notes. Dry ~ The floral has come to the top, and they are much stronger now. Sweet, like jasmine (i'm not sure what snow flowers smell like) There is definitely a green scent, and the aquatic notes that were much stronger when this was wet, have softened. It's almost a sense of smelling flowers in the fog. (I don't live where it snows, so I'm not sure how that would smell) This is a very beautiful blend....I'm always amazed at how gorgeous the Lunar oils are.

    Tart, I must have gotten the same batch! Cheers!!! Malibu Rum in the bottle, it's incredible. On my skin...chocolate peppermint, with a hint of coconut rum. I love this!!! Thank you for bringing this back for us to try.

    Plum....creamy white florals. Oh this is so beautiful. The Bergamont and plum are really apparant on my skin. I'm waiting for the grapefruit, but it still hasn't materialized, even after the drydown. Very lovely scent!

    Patchouli is very loud in this scent! But there is almost a piney scent that I'm catching! As this drys the orange blossom is coming out. It's toning down the patchouli, and the pine scent. The Carnation is the very last scent that I'm getting. It's very soft, and shows up when this has soaked into my skin. Very contrary, and lovely scent!

    March Hare

    Oh! I like this one a lot! Juicy apricot...not tart for me. And the clove is incredible! Almost a mulled scent on my skin. Very yummy!

    This is one of those oils that all the scents merge together, and nothing really takes over. It's musky, sweet, and earthy all at once. This has excellent staying power. I've taken a bath with this on, and I can still smell it. I Love this!

    #20 Love Oil

    Herbal, Green, Rose, and maybe even carnation. I don't think it's regular rose though, because that always turns to powder immediately on my skin...so it may be a rose geranium. For some reason the little bit of spicieness in this scent (that many people have said is cinnamon) is smelling like carnation to me. I'm also smelling a musk after wearing this for awhile. This is interesting...and I think that I will keep it around for another try.

    Rain water, salty, tiny touch of lemon/lime. I'm contantly amazed at how Beth can combine oils and come up with a feeling, a time, a place. This puts me at the beach right before the rain hits the sand. Incredibly beautiful!

    OH MY GOSH! Why didn't I try this sooner! Ginger, lilies, and a little spicieness, just gorgeous. It took me a little while to smell the tart of the cranberry, and it just adds to this beautiful scent. I'm amazed, and in love with this scent! Thank you Beth, I'll be ordering a big bottle of Lampades!

    This starts out smelling of Lemon Verbena to me. As time passes I can pick up the white tea, and the ginger. It's very soft, not sharp to me at all. Just a clean white scent. Very pretty!

    Kuang Shi

    Wow, people got such a range of reactions to this scent. And very different from my vial. Very soft mandarin/mango scent. It's sweet but not overly sweet. The white musk give the sweetness just a little twist, which I'm loving. The sandalwood hasn't come up for me yet. This is such a lovely scent! Another scent I would wear in the spring or summer.
  12. fairywingmaker


    Wet on my skin this starts out as a very Woodsy scent, accented by deep dark red rose. Then as it dries the Frankincense starts to emerge along with the sweetness of lily. This one scared me! I thought it was going to be too deep, dark, and masculine, then it becomes light and beautiful. The rose part of this is beautiful (and I do not wear rose as a rule, as it always turns to powder on me.) There is an almost lemony touch to this after it's completely dried. I'm blown away by this scent.

    MMMmmmm.....plummy, soft floral, touch of jasmine....not sure I can find the white musk. This is so beautiful. A very girly scent. Another that would be wonderful as a spring or summer scent. Light and soft!

    I'm with Lorajc, I absolutely LOVE the Cinnamon scents. This is gorgeous. I can smell the almond in the vial, but it's all about the cinnamon when it goes on my skin. Luckily cinnamon does not burn my skin. If you tend to have really sensitive skin, I would recommend that you use a scent locket for this one.

    The White Peach is so soft and lovely! I'm a lover of patchouli, and this coupled with the musk give the Peach a spicey, heady, interesting twist. I don't find this cloying at all. Although it does have lasting power. I don't tend to slather at all, and a small amount lasted me all day. This will be a favorite!

    This is all lemon and sandalwood on my skin. It sort of reminds me of the shaving cream my dad used when I was little. It's very masculine to me, and will go in my husbands BPAL pile. I think he will like it.
  17. fairywingmaker


    Vanilla is definitely a favorite with me, and coupled with the orange blossoms, and narcissus...It's just gorgeous. I'm loving this scent...

    Honeysuckle This is blooming honeysuckle in a bottle. I cannot believe how perfect this scent is! I have honeysuckle all along our fence, and smell it all the time, this is it. Gorgeous!

    Hollywood Babylon

    Vanilla, Strawberry, Musk...those are the notes that come to the top on my skin with Hollywood Babylon. The amber is staying down, and that is good, because it doesn't always work well with my chemistry. I like how this smells on my skin. And I think I may invest in a bottle.

    This one is interesting to me....minty, earthy, maybe even a little piney. Am I smelling patchouli in this? The mintyness I was smelling at first has faded. The earthy/piney thing is taking over. It's not a strong scent. It's not something I would wear personally, but if you like the woodsy thing it would probably be great for you.

    I love the buttercreamieness of this scent! It quickly morphs into the honey mead/rum on my skin. I'm not getting almonds as I'm wearing this...I definitely smell it in the vial, but it's not coming through on my skin. I'm not sure if I can wear this one...but I'm thinking it my be great on my husbands skin.
  22. fairywingmaker


    Wow! Heliotrope knocks my socks off! What a beautiful sweet smell. It's not overpowering in its sweetness...it's a soft lovely...mmmm what is that? kind of a scent. I too will be looking for the blends that have heliotrope in them.
  23. fairywingmaker


    I want to love this so much, and I do, in the vial. On me it's all musk, and not in a good way. My body chemistry usually enhances myrrh, but it's not coming up for me at all, and while I can smell the almond in the vial...it never appears on my skin. I'm so sad
  24. fairywingmaker


    Soft Floral, but a gentle woodsiness at the same time. Very green...there is a scent in there that reminds me of something....I can't figure this out. This is such a dreamy scent. I think this is one I could wear on a daily basis and not get tired of it. I also would like to see what my husbands chemistry would do with this scent.
  25. fairywingmaker


    Heliotrope is really a pretty scent! Very sweet on my skin. The patchouli is right under the sweetness, and after wearing awhile I can pick up just the tiniest of the oakmoss. I'm not sure about copal...I don't know what that smells like. I like this scent, although I'm not sure if it's what I consider the "scent" of greed.
