    Autumn Cider

    This starts out on me like hot apple cider with a few red hots thrown in. As it dries, the butterscotch oozes through, giving it a carmel apple scent. SO FRICKIN' GOOD!!!
  2. I'm loving Neutral as well. This is our 5th day in temps over 100, so I've been mostly slathering the citrusy scents. Akuma Kuang Shi Knockout Drops Titania ...and the occasional vanilla... Wulfric LIZ

    Scent for Halloween?

    I wore Second of Three Spirits to the midnight showing of HPPart2 - it has always reminded me of Hogwart's Christmas feast.

    RPG Combos

    Yesterday I tried Paladin + Neutral = Sweet musky soft leather. Generally, Neutral tends to sweeten up anything I blend with it.

    RPG Combos

    I agree about the combo of Neutral + Chaotic. Delicious. More that were particularly gorgeous: Neutral + Elf + Mage = Musky Berries and Incense Neutral + Rogue + Cleric = Musky Hempy Leather and Incense Lawful + Elf + Cleric = Leafy Berries and Incense Chaotic + Halfling = Yummy spicy Porridge! Evil + Dwarf = SEXY I'm so impressed by these. Everything I've tried is fabulous.

    RPG Combos

    I'm curious as to what technique others are using to layer these. I'm putting them seperately on one arm/hand (say, Chaotic on the back of my hand, Halfling on my wrist, Cleric further up my arm) so I can enjoy them one at a time - and blending them together on my other hand. EVERY combo I've tried thus far is gorgeous. I agree with Dark Alice - Evil ROCKS. (as does Lawful...Neutral...Mage...Halfling...ok all of them).

    RPG Combos

    I began my RPG quest yesterday, as a Good (sugary acacia), Elf (woody meadow), Paladin (soft leather). My aroma was so delicious, I almost cut my head off with my own sword while trying to sniff my wrist during battle! Today, I was a Lawful (OMG!!! so friggin' fantastic! Rhubarb, oak and chamomile - who knew?), Mage (mmmm, frankincense) Elf. Again, I was overwhelmed by the beauty emanating from my wrists! As I rode my silver Arabian (1998 Plymouth Voyager) to the Caverns of Cazahl (work), I felt wrapped in an exquisite cloud of protection (BPAL). May I add that Beth is a genius. My imaginary world is now complete.

    I get ACACIA, with a little sugar on the side. Slightly powdery, with very faint musk in the background, and ACACIA!!!! in the foreground. I mixed this with a bit of Paladin - OH WoW! (see what I did there?) Very nice!
  9. Second of Three Spirits smells JUST LIKE the Hogwarts Christmas feast !!!!

    Bones Trombone

    With each inhale, I get "mmmm, fluffy blueberry/lemony flaky-crusted pie of ....EVIL!!!" I'm amazed that at the end of each sniff comes the whallop of hemlock. Its like Bones throws his trombone slide out and bonks me in the nose! Genius. Also, this one and Knockout Drops are canine attracters. My dogs come over as soon as I apply it, and want to lick it off my wrists.

    Knockout Drops

    Delicious! An icy, minty, lemony mojito, with a bit of absinthe on the side (hic!). I was about to say "no white chocolate", but I can catch a whiff of it when my hands are far from my face. The vanilla grounds it nicely. Must grab a bottle.

    Scent for Halloween?

    Awwww. I hope it is magical for her. I wore Second of the Three Spirits on Christmas day, but have been hooked on the Nutcracker for the last two days. mmmmmmm, incense.

    The Second of the Three Spirits

    This is Christmas Dinner at Hogwarts. Pine trees, plum pudding, orange slices, roasted chestnuts and butterbeer.

    Switch Witch 2010 !

    Does anyone do altered books? Would you be interested in old books to alter? Any type or title in particular? I am ignorant of this practice. Did someone ask about incense yet? Would you like some? Something to store or burn it in? What scents? What form? I do like incense - any kind. Any oddball free things you collect or would want saved for you? I try to throw away as much stuff as I can, because my grandmother was a hoarder (boxes and boxes of twine, butcher paper and old newspapers), so STUFF makes me nervous. For those who are yarnies, would you like other-than-yarn witchery? Hooks, needles? Preference of material? Do you use/would you like handmade stitch markers, etc.? Not a yarnie. What is your favourite habitat and climate to live in? How about to visit? (ie. forest, canyons, mountains, by the beach; temperate, tropical...) I've lived all over, but I think I most love being near a beach. I've lived near beautiful white Destin, Fl. beaches, near crowded Rio de Janiero beaches, chilly Jersey Shore beaches and now muddy Galveston, Tx beaches - and have loved them all...just so I also have a big umbrella handy! How do people feel about edible arrangements? I love fruit, and I love chocolate, so it could work! Anyone need address/phone type books? Got enough, thanks. Do you read/like fantasy? What kind of books or authors do you love? Which one would you like to read? Would you like gifts related to it? Yes! Terry Pratchett, Jim Butcher, Jacqueline Carey, but I think I currently have all of their books Soaps : do you like them? What brands? What scents? Anything you're dying to try? I do love soaps, but all of my money goes to BPAL perfume, so I haven't tried much. Any are appreciated. Socks? I love socks, mostly knee socks, of warm, fluffy material. How do people feel about word magnets? I don't have a metallic surface for magnet. What are you guys going to be aiming for in the Inquisition? Slaugh or Ginger Snaps look interesting. If you could have any costume, or if you aren't into costumes, necklace or other accessory, from any movie character, what would it be? The dresses from the latest Marie Antoinette movie (with Kirsten Dunst), all of Lucilla's costumes/jewelry from "Gladiator", Eliza's black and white Ascot dress from "My Fair Lady" (and hat). If you have something on a wishlist that we could craft INSTEAD of buying, though it might not end up identical to the wishlist thing, would it be okay to craft it instead? Obviously we don't want to copy anyone else's design, but if we can replicate the flavour or intent that you like without stepping on toes? For example, you like some simple earrings with moon charms on them. We have moon charms and earring backs, though of course not exactly the same ones. Absolutely. Is there a TV, movie or literary character that you are a lot alike, or would like to be alike? - Pippi Longstocking Is there anything you need for your kitchen, ie measuring cups, spoons, grater, ect? – I try to stay out of the kitchen, as much as possible. My family prefers that, as well. Music, DO you prefer Live or Studio? Edited or explicit? - Live or studio, either is good. I tend to prefer edited - just because I've always tried to keep my kid's world clean. Now, however, they are the ones that turn the radio down when an explicit song is on, saying, "Mom, you shouldn't hear this one". If you are an animal lover, is there a specific type/breed that you love most? – I adore cats of any kind. And golden retrievers. Also flowers and plants- If you like flowers/plants, do you have a favorite(s)? – I love lilacs and hydrangas, but am able to kill any living plant, so I view them from afar. Do you have a favorite quotation? Song lyric? Book passage? - Favorite quotation, from my mom: BE FLEXIBLE What would your last meal be if it could be anything in the world (sky is the limit, drinks too, the whole shebang) – mmmm, Seasoned steak and baked potato from Saltgrass Steakhouse, turnip greens, and a Haagen Daz Chocolate covered chocolate ice cream bar. With a bottle of Chimay blue. Dollar store stuff - whatever tickles my Witch's fancy Specific book - I'm still waitin to get the latest Jim Butcher Alera series book in paperback, "Prince's Fury", but I don't think its out yet. Groupons vs gift certificates: No thanks HP House: Love HP - I'm a Ravensclaw. Pajamas? I sometimes wear yoga pant in size S/M. Level of Girly: I've always loved twirly skirts and big fluffy crinolines and starchy pink tutus - but that just may be due to my love of costuming. Tarot: no thanks Austen: YES!!! Have read and loved all of them. Mix CDs: Please. Soft/plush: My past Witchee, the fabulous LunaLiquid, knitted me some fingerless gloves and a lovely scarf, as a reverse Halloween SW gift- and yes I adore them, and allthings soft and plushy. ----------------- New questions! What, if anything, is your guilty TV watching pleasure? I love Project Runway, and I'm strangely, horrifically attracted to the Hoarding shows, particularly the Pet Hoarders. If you cosplay or need a costume for your bellydance/burlesque hobby (or any other hobby which needs dressup/different from your normal wear), is there anything you need/want for it? I started bellydancing a couple of years ago and have had to stop, due to time issues. But I'm always looking for "pretty goth" and renaissance faire costumes. Celebrity crush?: mmm Alan Rickman, ever since "Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves" Sean Bean circa the "Sharpe's" series What about [mixed or otherwise] DVDs? Sure, especially any comedy. Favs are BBC comedies, Monty Python, Spinal Tap DVDs: Do you prefer widescreen or formatted? Widescreen. Music: Any preference towards MP3 or CD? CD's...I'm low-tech. Do you like scented tarts? Sure! Lip balms? Yes, I use Burt's Bees, or whatever is handy. Do you have any body mods? If so, do you need any new jewelry, o-rings, plugs, etc (and if so, what size, length, etc)? Do you like pro-body mod stickers? Just earrings, which I adore. Booze. Do you drink it, would you like some? Love wine and wine accessories. Also enjoy me some spiced rum (arrrr!!) What is your favorite artist or art style? (including if you have links to favorite pictures/paintings/photographs) Hirschfield. What is your favorite snack food, something you could grab any time? peanuts, dried cranberries, and any type of dark chocolate. Ebooks? I don't have an ebook reader. Nail Polish I polish my toes with gold, silver, or very dark red/maroon. Do you wear make up? - Just on the eyes, nothing special Socks? Anyone? - Yes! Its hot most of the year, here, but I love big fluffy socks to wear to soccer games in the winter! What is something you use to comfort yourself when feeling yucky, depressed, or in pain? - Dorian, and my fleece comforter (and my hubby) Favorite Halloween/Scary movies? "The Changeling", a real creeper with George C. Scott. "The Ring" was pretty good, too. Can't take slasher movies. Favorite Halloween/Scary books? Nah

    Bocal de Sang

    More love here. A great rich combination of molasses, sassafras and wine. This is going into my "most precious" imp container, right next to Storyville.

    Wet: Root Beer, then Snake Oil Dry: On my right arm, Snake Oil and sandalwood. On my left arm, gorgeous lavendar and musk. After two hours: Very nice blend of vanilla, musk, lavendar. The Snake Oil has faded back (yea!), the patchouli is miniscule. Verah nice!
  18. loverstreet


    I would add my vote for Red Rider. It smells to me like walking into Tandy Leather Warehouse. Very raw, unfinished leather.

    When your favorite GC blends are discontinued

    You might want to try the new Marchen scent, Moonshine and Mist. It has the same magnolia, to my nose, and although it doesn't list white musk in Yvaine, I always smell it - and that is in M&M as well. I wore a spot of Yvaine this morning (in memorium) and tested M&M against it this afternoon...not identical twin, but maybe a sister.

    Moonshine and Mist

    Wet: That lovely white musk that I adore is at the forefront, accompanied by magnolia, and a faint violet. Dry: For me, this is really about the magnolia and musk, with the sandalwood waaaaay in the background. This scent, strangely enough, is magnolia on my left hand, and violet on my right hand. This has lasted for 7 hours now, including 2 hours of standing in line at the DMV. A lovely Southern scent (I guess its all that moonshine).

    Old Demons of the First Class

    Wet: HELLO black pepper! A little black pepper demon dancing around with black CLOVEn hooves. Dry: He's now cloaked in a swirling robe of tonka with a hood of opoponax. Whew! watch him dance all over that neroli. Love it. Very spicey and dark. I'm ready to go to that club that Kie$ha sings about!
  22. loverstreet

    The Grave-Pig

    Love it. Wet: Musty, earthy, figgy. I'm getting almost a gentle tobacco smell. Dry: Sweet, dried fig, with a light patchouli in the background. So lovely.
  23. I would agree with CaudaPavonis on all of those choices. I personally ADORE Akuma, Paramatman and Kuang Shi - all delicious orange on me.

    '80s Prom Scent?

    "Sweet Honesty", or, if you could steal it from your sister's room, "Lauren" .
  25. loverstreet


    I can tell this is going right to my top ten list! In the bottle: Orangey sandalwood Wet: Lucious orange blossoms, mixed with dry sandalwood Dry: OMG!! Gorgeous champaca-city! Really rich, beautiful champaca, with a touch of sandalwood. The orange is gone, but not even missed. Can't get enough - nose stuck to hand - might as well just put some on my upper lip.
