  1. I am in heaven The perfect rootbeer scent, but even better. It's like Tombstone weds Morocco and has a baby rootbeer float. Thank you, Labbies - I am thoroughly in love with this scent!!
  2. I have to figure out a workaround for my DC'd Schnuggle. I ordered from the UK last night and my finances won't tolerate too much of that (they have their Xmas stuff up though!!). I'm tempted to melt down my unused Mange bar, add whip in some cornstarch.

    BPAL Fruit Blends - the many variations

    If you can get your hands on some Carnivale, I always found that to be spicy/fruity. and layered with Chimera, it's even spicier

    I purchased this one based mainly on the foody aspects (honey, date palm(?), vanilla bean). My body chemistry seems to bring out the florals, particularly the tuberose. Slightly off topic - is tuberose the same flower as stephanotis? This blend reminds me very much of my wedding boquet, which was primarily roses and stephanotis. In any event, this one is a lovely warm floral blend (but I think I'm going to have to stick with the Smut )

    Red Lantern

    My first impression is sweet buttery caramel. Once applied, the caramel fades and ... this really is a complex scent. This one reminds me a lot of Elegba, with a drydown of rich, sweet tobacco and coconut. I like it, but I may have a difficult time wearing it (boo menopause).

    Mellow and a bit boozy in the bottle--slightly sweet. My initial impression is that it's got something in common with Snake Oil--I'm guessing that it's one of the musks (but I could be completely off base ). This is definitely a skin scent on me. Warm and musky, just slightly sweet and boozy. Thank you to the lab for getting these out so quickly--I'll be scoping out reviews to see what else I need to order before Lupercalia goes away ETA: The longer it's on, the better it gets. and the throw is *just right* Must have more.

    If you like Pina Coladas

    I think Snow White (at least the 04 version) smells a lot like a Pina Colada.

    It's been awhile since the last time I demanded that Mike sniff my wrist.. this is so lovely. I'm not picking up the green that others are mentioning. Right off the bat I'm getting sweet creamy almonds (at which point I demanded the sniff). The scent is still morphing though, and I also detect fig and a light undercurrent of coconut. The scent is fairly light right now, but the true test will be tomorrow (temp of 93). I hope it blooms, because I just love it. Thanks, labbies
  9. I'm thinking White Rabbit will be a nice early summer scent.

    Anyone remember Pavi Elle?

    There are some Ebay listings for Pavi Elle... (unless you're looking for a BPAL version)

    In the bottle I smell mint. When I put it on, the blast of mint is followed by a slight coconut scent, then it goes plastickey. This is the first time I've experienced that. Something it my body chemistry does not agree with Spooky. I'll keep one bottle to use as a room scent, and the other two will go up for swap.

    Different smells/colors, same perfume

    you know, my old morocco 10ml is nothing like my 5ml OR my imps! i thought i was going crazy. it's way woodsier. i'm really disappointed in how different it is-- it's like another perfume entirely. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Let the lab know. I was curious about mine and they recommended allowing it to age--they also offered to replace it. I opted to hang on to it. That particular bottle never has smelled like Morocco. I've also found I have better luck with 5ml's, but I have received a good 10ml in the meantime. I do sympathize
  13. I thought Love Me smelled a lot like Flying Fox

    I absolutely love this. Hot tea with lots of sugar--truly comforting. It reminds me of my childhood and drinking tea with my Mother. Dorian will compete with Bliss for being my favorite bedtime blend. Kudos to Beth and The Lab--who'd have ever thought such a scent was possible. Thank you!!

    I committed this imp to the Oblation Caravan. Must. share. the. preciouss. *sigh. If I order it right now, that'll make three orders in a single day. Only Beth (and The Lab) could create a scent as lovely as this. The mango is evident--but hidden behind a veil of red musk. In time, the mango lightens and I'm able (just barely) to detect the florals. I probably won't do it tonight, but I will be ordering a big bottle.
