    Bonfire night is my go to smoke scent; brings me right back to celebrating bonfire night in the UK And now there's single note bonfire;)
  4. Hello my witch wonderful I TOLD THE NACHO MINION I DONT NEED ANYTHING-youve been SO VERY GENEROUS A minion or nacho witch wrote me asking my coffee and scent prefences. And before I get to those IF EITHER BEAVER MOON or MISCHIEF found its way to me, there would be much rejoicing. !! I'd like to thank you for all the goodness. I am still petting my sock dreams socks-twas warm today so havent worn them yet, but they will get the love they deserve. Tonight I went out shopping, ostensibly looking for Levis but alas, there were short size 8, or tall size 8's but no regular, so I headed to the Kipling purse section. I've taken to only wearing Kipling purses ($ but oh so lightweight-and they hold a lot) Which brings me to ketchup- my purse is like some sort of traveling office wallet, phone,charger, separate camera , pens, makeup,meds,notebook,and sometimes bits of craft stuff and supplies!! so I would love one of those purse organizer type things-I put an example on my amazon list! SCENT STUFF-Vanillas and foody are my favorites-I would love to try MISCHIEF, FIZZY JACK o'Lantern-also like coffee scents (I have MIsk U and love using it in fall and Winter) I also just bought a bottle of BONFIRE NIGHT and love that-also like ale and beer scents!! am not a fan of patchouli and excessively Floral Other scents-Possets-I used to wear them,but they disappeared on me-my skin just ate up whatever the base is so sadly Open to trying other scents too! COFFEE_ YAY FOR GROUND COFFEE-Decaf preferred-I like Trader Joes coffee, and of course STARBUCKS!!! Prefer coffee to tea CLOTHING- tshirt-long sleeve preferred or short sleeve-no sleeveless cause it woulnt be pretty-size L-I like babydoll kind-if it was a lab tshirt or american apparel type Id be xl but in target style shirts am a large! FAVORITE SOAP COMPANY IS BOTANICA BATH ON ETSY (they used to be called natures edge) like citrus flavors scents for moisturizers always love shower gels skin type-dry and sensitive:( but moisturizing stuff always welcome favorite colors-if you look at my etsy shop you can probably tell my favorite color is BLUE,,and I love knitted goods-cowls, scarves, gloves or wristwarmers!! And you know I have much fondness for cars, for the show TOP GEAR, for all the programs on BBC AMerica (which I no longer have-grr) at this point I do not have an ereader-but at some point anticipate an ipad!! AND ONE MORE THING_WITCHIEPOO_ I WUB YOU- JUST POKE ME IF YOU WANNA KNOW SOMETHING,OK?

    Dana O'Shee

    OMG-picked this up at the ECWC in Vermont last month, and even though the weather is humid right now, and this is a "foody" scent, it's cool enough to say, I need more bottles! As it settles on me, I don't get honey at all, but grains and vanilla. It's light enough on my skin not to be too sweet, just very very comfortable-from the foody descriptions I thought it might warm up too much, but this is playing nicely with my skin chemistry and instead of honey or almonds I get grain; very feminine and wearble while satisying my need for foody bpal!
  9. I would suggest Lawn gnome-smells earthy , yet theres a bit of lightness (like a blade of grass instead of just dirt:D But then again, you might want something darker, but for me lawn gnome is an earthy blend like what you describe! Ive been to scandnavian summer for midsummer, and lawn gnome seems to me tobe trees and earth with a bit of sultry and what you described as earthy! (IMHO)

    one of my favorites- flowery tea with hint of vanilla and soft, warm bread. no real anise smell. It's a go to everywhere scent for me, and close to Love's Philosophy in it's wearability. Not too floral. Most floral scents amp up on me, but these are very soft butterflies-really a good bread smell too!

    The Arabian Dance

    gorgeous-just received it today and wanted to wear it tonight but thought I might smell too smoky; I do tend to amp the smoke, but the leather & coffee are grgeous, and I think of this as a nighttime scent. It's smoke and not cigarettes, and I am really enjoying wearing it-it's a soft tobacco, but nighttime instead of daytime, except maybe in winter-like now- this scent makes me go wow, and on drydown it's much softer, and I hope it sticks around for a long while!
  17. Today my most wonderful witch sent me an email, asking me what I would want if by chance she placed a lab order and something slipped in.(cough) I think it would be bread and butterfly OR boo. My witch has gifted me with amazing soaps and creams and I feel all clean and moisturized thanks to her>! though I must confess, dear witch, I have never experienced little pony crafting fondness:( Hope this is not upsetting to you.. And tonight(ok, this morning) am gonna peruse my amazon list, and place an order using the gift certificate you sent me! Another BIG YAY! Ok, I hope you had a good day, and got your coffee and milk, because those are extremely important items to have on hand, and whatever your research is, coffee & milk will make it easier(IMHO) Oh,as far as beverages go,I'm probably set on TEA (thanks to various wonderful witches) and I love local items (especially mugs) though I confess I have no need for shot glasses...and I will try to post here, and meanwhile, thank you so much-you are a most excellent witch! signed, your witchee:wub2:
  18. I want my witch to know she's great and wonderful, and some ketchup-i do like pomegranate, and have rearely had it,maybe in some salady things,and my favorite notes tend to be vanilla,safron,creamy,slightly foody,sugary,but I also love the beer and tar in bonfire night & feeding the dead, and thought i didnt like jasmine until I tried jasmine cottage! I also like coffee notes (luv my pumpkin latte) And,oh BTW I am framing THE TOP GEAR CARD! I always thought I might be THE STIG!!

    Pumpkin Latte

    just got it today!! from foumite who didnt want it!! Good thing, cause I love the warm,nutty espresso coffee flavor. Excellent throw, and it seems to have great staying power.Also, not TOO sweet that I would feel like a yankee candle shop! spicy yet smooth!A keeper and a wearer>Long for more. Still, I think a little will go a long way, and this will be great on cooler days!

    Bon Vivant

    No strawberry in the imps Ive tried-just sparkly champagney 7up soda kind of feel-very bubbly and sweetly clean. for me, it doesnt warrant a bottle, but Im glad for the imps Ive had as its a tad too sweet after drydown!

    Monster Bait: biggerCritters

    very soft,summer and spring worthy, I am hoarding my last few drops of the golden elixir!! It plays well with my skin chemistry, and I dont sense any jasmine whatsoever!! But clean and snuggly scent!

    The Zadok Allen Vineyard

    read a review and thought of my beloved but gone red lantern(it was my first bpal lurve) so procured a bottle from a kind forumite!! And WINE OMG I do have a hard time not drinking from the little bottle-it does smell red wine-ish most certainly and is sweet,but not a foody sweet, dfinitely juciy.Alas, I dont get any coffee from this but its a definite keeper bottle-hoping fordark adult booziness and thats what I got!!

    Wezwanie / Hold

    I think of this scent as hazelnut coffee-almost as a substitute for when I dont have a cuppa joe handy. It is slatherworthy, and makes me happy I was in Atlanta GA once to get a bottle after doing an insanely hot craft fair. It was solid warm relief, and is smooth and comforting, and wearable year-round coffee YAY
