    CCNow Questions & Problems

    I have the same issue, I've never seen that before.
  2. First: *hugs* Vice, Boo!, Cake Smash, Eat Me... foody scents make me feel happy and comforted. Sometimes something obnoxiously floral does too (oh, how I miss you, biggerCritters). What makes you happy, either from scent or name? Or reminds you of something special?
  3. Which blends are closest to Velvet Unicorn? I get a tropical, almost pina colada-esque coconut-cherry-citrus sugar cloud scent from it.

    Honey and Beeswax scents

    Detestable Putrescence smells mostly like honeyed vanilla to me. (: It's also a lot like LUSH's Mange Too massage bar.

    "You can't afford me" scents?

    Kindly Moon. Crystalline, ethereal, yet very regal and sophisticated. I’ve yet to find another BPAL blend like it.
  6. I consider Fazia, the Black Mamba to be a humid, heady, ever-changing, dark-seductive scent. It smells kinda sweet, kinda resinous, but nothing’s exactly easy to define, and the green adds a slight bite to it. Perversion’s also another steamy-sexy-but-kinda sweet blend. Maenad is sweetened up with strawberries, orange blossoms, and carnations but there’s also a heady twist of black poppies. Malkuth, the Sephiroth blend is similar to Maenad, but more juicy, and incense-soaked. …and Death Adder is sweet vanilla-coconut, with opoponax to make it interesting, but then there’s a dark twist of vetiver that acts like the leather in Perversion.

    Happiness

    Aunt Caroline's Joy Mojo tends to make me a little bouncy, no matter what.

    Smells like Demeter 'Waffle Cone'?

    Have you tried Beaver Moon ‘05/Beaver'versary? It is the only foody BPAL that's stayed foody on me, and with it's description of "Cheesecake and cupcakes, yo! This is Beaver Moon 2005 resurrected!" it might fit what you're looking for.

    Nag Champa scent in a BPAL blend?

    I think Midnight on the Midway is the best nag champa-esque blend I’ve tried.

    Searching for the Perfect Vanilla?

    I have the issue of vanilla, tonka, and benzoin usually not showing up, at all, on my skin, but sarsaparilla, especially after it’s aged a few months, turns into a thick, creamy vanilla on me. I know your chemistry is a different sort of mean, but have you tried Tombstone or Stimulating Sassafras Strengthener? Fresh, Tombstone can smell okay, or just like charred wood and root beer, but it turns into a heavy, rich vanilla with a marshmallow backing... and Stimulating Sassafras Strengthener smells similar to Love's Philosophy (only with the addition of wood), on me. Strangely, I typically amp woods into Super!Evil Throat Closing and Blend Ruining Monsters, but the wood notes seem to stay in check in those two.

    Searching for the Perfect Vanilla?

    You can satisfy both your needs with one scent: Eat Me! This is my favorite GC -- delicious, slightly boozy currant cakes. This is a sweet scent, and new imps do have a buttery note that I'm not too crazy about, but the butter fades quickly (and a little aging almost eliminates it). Eat Me is definitely worth trying! I don’t get the cake or butter notes, but depending on my chemistry, I get a currants and cream, or Snake Oil, minus the amber. Vanilla tends to vanish on me, so I really only get the berries, but Hollywood Babylon’s another berry-vanilla blend. (: It's funny you mention that -- sometimes the comments I get from other who smell Eat Me are that it smells like sweet incense. Since I usually can't do resiny blends, this suits me just fine (though I often wonder how my skin does such crazy things ). Hah, I read so many reviews on different things and think, “Wait, they must have something mislabeled, those notes can’t do that!” or, “No way, I amp that note, and it is NOT in this blend!” Then, “Oh yeah, since when are notes normal on me?” crebbsgirl: YAY for Perversion! Also, it’s another non-vanilla on me, but Le Père Fouettard is a subtle (in feeling, in wearlength, it lasts longer than a most blends do on me), booze-free Perversion variant on my skin.

    Searching for the Perfect Vanilla?

    Vanilla typically hides on my skin, but Smut is a rough and dirty vanilla smell... and Perversion isn't vanilla on me, but it has vanilla-esque notes, along with tobacco, musk, and booze.
  14. I’m not sure if you’ve tried them already, but… Eat Me is cakey with a twist of citrus, but it’s mostly currant and a more creamy cake... at least on my skin. All Souls is another cake one, but that one’s still more like Eat Me.
