    How to make a paypal order.

    Ah, I didn't know the CnS applied to Paypal orders as well as CCNow. Thanks!!

    How to make a paypal order.

    Paypal questions. When the lab ships the order, does the "Action" box next to the order details change? Also, do you get any email notifications saying it's been shipped? Basically, I know they got my order on 9/18...I don't know if it's been sent.
  3. I was wearing Juke Joint yesterday and was attacked by a bee. I wasn't sure if it was the perfume or my hair products. But it was buzzing around my face and head like no one's business.

    Juke Joint

    I have been wearing Juke Joint non-stop since I got it. I love it. It starts out with a minty alcohol smell, although I don't get the sweetness of the bourbon and sugar. There's something else initially upon applying that I can't pinpoint. Sometimes I think it's lime. And sometimes I think it's anise. Once it starts to dry, it starts to turn very smokey. It does get musty and slightly powdery on me. But not so much that I can't wear it. It's really on the brink of being a scent that is too powdery to wear. I think the musty, smoke smell is keeping the powder in check. It fades very quickly so I might have to start carrying the bottle with me to reapply throughout the day. ....it also makes me think of Juke Joint Jezebel.

    Why do scents turn to baby powder on me?!

    Just off the top of my head....Absinthe, Embalming Fluid, Apothecary, and Zombi turned to pure baby powder on me. I think it's some herbal note that does it, but I can't pinpoint it.

    Cucumber-ish scents?

    Blue Moon is fresh/clean and has cucumber. You'd probably have to trade someone for it.

    Allergy Questions, Allergies and other reactions to oils

    For those of you who have an oil that doesn't burn one day, but then burns the next... Are you applying the oil right after getting out of a hot shower? Open pores could be an issue. Just a thought.

    Allergy Questions, Allergies and other reactions to oils

    For those of you looking for an unscented lotion to mix your oil with... I use plain ole Aveeno Unscented lotion. The oatmeal in it calms any itching and it's not greasy. If I have a burny BPAL oil, I'll put a little on my palm, add a squirt of Aveeno from the pump bottle, mix in my hand, and rub into the "tougher" areas...like my elbows and knees.

    Allergy Questions, Allergies and other reactions to oils

    I'd get one of those little scent lockets so it's not touching your skin at all. Or run the wand through your hair.

    Allergy Questions, Allergies and other reactions to oils

    Inferno caused much, much pain. :D Oh how it hurt...so badly... (see avatar) I've been very careful using any oil with cinnamon now. Most of them I can't wear on my skin. For some I can tolerate mild burning.

    Oh how I love this scent. Why? Because it smells similar to Samhain (without the pumpkin n spice) Mine doesn't smell cherry-ish at all. It has a strong apple, spice, cinnamon scent right out of the bottle. And then dries more powdery and flowery. I can't determine which flower though.... It does give me that summer-just-turning-to-autumn vibe.

    Important info regarding shipping and emails

    I placed an order on 5/15 via Paypal and haven't heard anything. I emailed last week asking if they at least received my order. I haven't gotten a response. Brian mentioned the other day about re-printing some Paypal orders. I don't know if one of those is mine...I'm not sure what "re-printing a Paypal order" actually means. Were they originally overlooked? So I just wait... I know eventually it'll show up...

    Well, I tried to reply before and the Page Not Found demon ate it. So here goes again... Diana, is there any way you could put our locations under our avatars? I know I can drill down into a profile but....I don't want to! If I'm being a pain, just whack me!!

    A Little Lunacy

    Have scent descriptions been posted anywhere for Blue Moon? I'd like to have some inkling as to what I will be buying--especially since cinnamon is torture for me.

    Too stupid to figure out Acrobat.

    If your order form is in Word, you can just go into your Word doc and Print. Then select Acrobat Writer or Distiller as the print option. It should create the pdf for you.
