  1. I was wondering if there is a big difference between these scents. both are rose, amber and musk. I got a sample of Spellbound and it was way too rosy for me, so is Black Rose pretty much the same? I noticed that I had it on my list of what I want to try, but since Spellbound didn't work out, I'm wondering. thanks.

    Blood Kiss

    this is one of my all time favorite scents! I tried it at first because I thought it sounded kinda different from what I usually get, but it is exactly everything I like in one! its sweet and a bit spicy, soft and powdery, and slightly dark and mysterious. it smells kind of strong on me at first, but mellows out to a sweet dark scent. I usually alternate this and Snake Oil as my 'going out' scents.

    well, this was in interesting one for me. in the bottle is smelled exactly like sweet, sweet rum to me. very rummy. on, it smelled incredibly boozy, like I had poured rum on myself. very strong. after a couple minutes it started to smell like fire, like drinking rum around a camp fire. now in theory this might sound good, but I had a very unsettling "drinking rum around a campfire" experience when I was younger, and I really don't want to smell like that. it was so rummy and firey that I almost gagged. yup, just the smell of rum makes me want to vomit. its too bad though. when I was thinking about the smell of rum and campfire it sounds pretty good. just not for me. ADDED Feb. 21, 2006: this one really isn't me. in the vial it smells good, sweet and butter-rummy, at first I thought it would be alright. when I first put it on the rum really came out, quite strong. it didn't really change much after that. it was just strong rum on me. kinda makes my stomach turn (bad rum experience )

    Sugar Skull

    I don't know if I love this scent, but I really really like it. its definatly not an everyday kind of scent to me though. In the bottle it smells very sweet and delicious. I love it, like a bowl full of brown sugar. On it gets the burnt smell, which is at first kinda unpleasant, but it turns into a delicious creme brule smell on me. its quite nice. a friend said it smelled like syrup, but I never really got that. all I think if is creme brule and it makes me want some!

    Block Buster

    I also get a cinnamon note in this one, like the other reviews. it also seems quite sweet to me, but not really in a cinnamon candy sort of way. just really sweet with a touch of sweet cinnamon, if that makes sense. I really liked it at first, and it didn't change much at all on me, but after about an hour I coulden't smell it at all! I'm going to have to try again another day!

    This is one of my favorite oils, so I can't believe I haven't written a review of it yet! to me Jezebel is wonderfully yummy and sexy. I think it smells like a deep delicious honey. its not just honey though, there is definatly other notes in there making it so deep and complex. The only other note I can really pick out is the rose, but it doesn't take over the other scents like most rose notes do on me. my imp is almost out, so I must definatly get a bottle soon!
  7. I like layering Skinny Dip with Snake Oil.

    this one is very interesting! I got it as a bonus in a swap and I'm very happy! I don't get a metallic smell in it, but definalty ashy. on me it smells like the smoke after you've blown out a candle. it smelles smoky but you can still smell the candle scent underneath the smoke. actually, its more like after you've snubbed out inscence. smokey and scented. I think it will be great for fall!

    Sandalwood Scents

    so far Cathedral is my favorite for a fairly pure sandalwood scent. its really nice.

    this is a very decadent scent! at first in the bottle it smelled like chocolate buttercream icing to me. on the nuts come out and I can smell a hint coffee too, like hazelnut coffee. after a while the nuts and sweets blend together nicely and now it smelles like a chocolate nut dessert. but its toasted nuts, not raw nuts. I like this scent very much!

    this is delicious! It wasen't masculine on me at all, just soft and sweet and exotic smelling. I want to say spicy, but there was no bite to it, no sharp edges. smooth and creamy, yes, like butter. I absolutly must have a big bottle of this!

    I think this is a fabulous scent! in the bottle it smelled like lime Jello or kool-aid to me. when on the myrrh comes out immediatly but then blends in with the lime and vanilla, the patchouli only peaks out, which is good because usually patchouli takes over on me. it makes me think of sitting deep in the woods, burning incense, and drinking (possibly spiked) kool-aid. its absolutly wonderful. and its been on me for about 5 hours and still going strong. my sister said I smelled like gingerbread cookies. must be the clove. woodsy lime or gingerbread, I think its fantastic!

    I also love love love Fae! In the bottle its mostly peachy, which isn't my favorite fruit scent, but it smells so wonderful and juicy! it goes on pretty sweet and juicy too, but then the woodsier scents come out. its both sweet and outdoorsy, but not in an overly mossy kind of way. I think this (and Rosalind) could be my favorite summertime scent(s)!

    I got this one in a swap and so far I think its great! when I first sniffed it I got mostly cherries, which is exactly what I wanted. on the cherry and sandalwood and anise balanced perfectly, I could smell all three and they didn't overpower eachother. I love the sweetness of the cherries, and the deepness that the anise and sandalwood bring. it seemed to mellow out quite quickly, but it didn't fade so much that I coulden't still get wiffs of it. I really like this one.

    I just got this one in a swap and I love it! its the perfect blend of the carnation (like Maiden) and the clean (like Juliet). I do get a bit of the watery smell, kind of like smelling the laundry being done, crisp and clean and wet. but there is also the carnation that throws a bit of spice around in there. I was trying to decide if I was going to get a bit bottle of either Maiden or Juliet, but now I think it will be Desdemona! its the best of both! and so far its had great staying power!

    when I first smelled this one in the imp I loved it. all sweet and warm and musky. when it was on, for about the first 1/2 hour I swear I could smell lemon. kinda weird. but now after about an hour the lemon is gone and its all sweet and warm and musky again. very interesting. I don't know about a bottle, but I'll probably use the imp.

    on me this baby is fresh! like a spring day when the grass is freshly cut and the flowers are blooming next to the berry patch. at first it was the fresh grass and flowers, and then the berries came out. very fresh and almost tart. but sweetened by the grass. I really like this one, espically now when spring is finally coming out.

    this is a very interesting scent to me. at first it smelled mostly of sweet lime to me. not a sharp bitter lime, but almost like lime candy. after wearing it a while the berries came out and it turned fairly warm on me. the lime faded a bit, but it was still here adding a strange sharpness and sweetness at the same time. I really like this one, not what I was expecting, but wonderful.

    I also got a cinnamon note in this one. at first, in the imp, it just smelled like lilac and lemon to me, but as soon as I put some on the cinnamon came out. really nice. the cinnamon faded a bit after a while and the florals came out. it almost smelled a bit rosy on me. very nice though.

    I love this scent! when I first sniffed it in the imp all I got was the cedar note. then for about the first 5-10 minutes I had it on it was all cedar as well, but then it morphed into a wonderful beautiful scent. the cedar faded into the background and the florals came out. not heavy florals, but soft sweet, woodsy florals. I would never have picked this one out on my own, so thank goodness for freebies! I love this fragrance! ETA: for some reason when I put this other places than my wrists (neck etc) it turns to bug spray! if I sniff my wrist I can smell the lovely scent reviewed above, but all around me is a haze of mosquito repellent! it does not make me happy.

    Cheshire Cat

    well, I think this one is the first to be truly bad on me. there have been those I didn't like, but this was just bad. in the imp it smelled mostly of citrus to me. on the citrus was there, but there was this strange scent there too, like burning plastic, or a diaper. really not for me.

    so even though I just recieved my last order yesterday I went to place another just now (I must have June Gloom) but it says it won't ship to Canada! ack! should I email Nella? what was her address again? oh please oh please help me! I need to spend some money!

    I don't know what more I can add to this. O is a wonderful scent. absolutly delicious. its very sweet and almost a bit sweaty. I freakin' love it. must have a big bottle.
  24. Becky


    I have this on one wrist now and I'm loving it! at first it was pretty incensy, but with some honey too. now its becoming more citrussy, softly lemony, not a sharp harsh lemon. but still incensy and honey. I love it!
  25. Becky


    well this is an interesting one. in the bottle it smelled very dark and sharp to me. on it was totally different. I swear it was like Dr. Pepper, without the incredible sweetness. it was slightly sweet and fizzy, like soda pop. after a while the fizziness faded away and it was like not so sweet, flat cola. interesting, but I really like it.
