    Honey & Neroli Hair Gloss

    I do smell the neroli quite a bit for the first hour or so, but after that I agree that it's mostly honey...for a while anyway. Because okay, hear me out, about 3 hours in this smells really tropical on my hair?? It reminds me a lot of the Coconut, Vanilla Bean and Tiare HG, but without the suntan lotion/beach oil quality. It's quite lovely actually! If I stick my braid inside my nostrils and huff, I can smell the honey AND the neroli, but for some reason the overall effect is just... tropical. I'm engulfed in a cloud of 'sitting on the beach watching the sunset with a coconut cocktail in hand and there are tropical flowers nearby'. I'm not mad about it. It doesn't actually smell like coconut but it's a vibe, okay? I don't know how else to explain it. I don't smell any peach or apricot, but I think we've established in this review I might not be the most reliable reviewer. I'm the beach vibes lady. I was also hoping for more neroli, which is one of my favorite notes, but I really love this. I have a large sample size of this one so I don't think I'll need to upgrade to a bottle, but I'm glad I have a good amount of it!

    Lilac!

    @VetchVesperI haven't tried Houses at the Back - Frost Morning, but I definitely had my eye on it when it came out! I made an order yesterday and allowed myself one Luper, and Wisteria Blossoms turned out to be the winner, so I hope I love it as much as you do, I'm on a mission to try out some florals (to think I started my perfume journey firmly believing I'd never enjoy florals! πŸ˜…). Although, I had to destash Winter Night, Figure on a Bridge a while back (it was overall a little too sharp for me), so hopefully Wisteria Blossoms isn't too similar! It's also traveling with a bottle of Vigil for the Harvest Suitors, so I should be set with lilac scents for a while haha. @Rayleigh I actually completely forgot The last Unicorn has lilac in it! I really love this one, but it's also not a lilac-centric scent for me. I can't smell it very much in Lady Amalthea either, actually. I think for both these scents I can feel its presence more than anything else, like it helps the scent feel well-rounded, if that makes sense? In any case, both are gorgeous, well-blended fragrances. πŸ’œ (Btw, Lady Amalthea is currently available on the lab's etsy, in case anyone is interested! It really is beautiful, and it's a good scent for hot weather, it has a refreshing quality to it, probably from the mint! I wore it a lot last summer). @hhelix Silenti was not on my radar at all and now I'm super curious! It sounds really lovely, I tend to really enjoy myrrh scents.

    Lilac!

    @Lucchesa I'm always on the lookout for a good lilac scent! Lilac always reminds me of being home in France in the summer. πŸ’œ I've been eyeing Vigil for the Harvest Suitors, as well as the new Vase de Lilas Γ  la FenΓͺtre. I think I am leaning towards the former, and I'm generally curious to see how the lab would do a sweeter lilac fragrance. I have The Lilac Wood and love it, but I have other lilac scents from other houses that are a little less green and a little sweeter, and I do tend to favor these ones (as day scents, anyway, I love to wear The Lilac Wood to Bed!).

    Sleepytime BPAL

    I've been LOVING The Bear Prince as a sleep scent lately! 🐻🌹 The Lilac Wood and The Last Unicorn are also lovely for night time.

    Smells to Work Out To - 30 Day Challenge

    Hi witches! Sorry I've been so scarce!.I had the meltdown to end all meltdowns this Saturday (so much so that I spent Sunday with a raging headache) and being online so much is just not helping. I'm okay now, I thinking I needed to let go of 10 months worth of frustration of living through these strange and challenging times. But I've been keeping up with the yoga, with only a couple of days where I've had to do two sessions to get caught up. I actually just finished 2 sessions and I'm now up to date with Adriene's challenge. I kind of just spritzed myself with the Vengeance Eternal HG which I just received this Saturday, and I really love it! I've also been falling in love with Personent Hodie and Tombeur, which came in that same order. Belly dancing did not quite work out for me, but, I will look out for Sadie! I ended up doing some really intense 15 minutes dance workout after belly dancing was a bust that day and half of the effort was me dying laughing at how badly coordinated I am. πŸ˜‚ So, a fun time overall, and definitely good cardio! Sending love to all of you!

    Hi witchy friends! I haven't checked in in a bit but I have kept up with Adriene's challenge every day. Will do Day 11 later today, and I'm thinking of trying some belly dancing as well haha, I'll report back! I found a couple of videos on Youtube, we'll see. I was away from home so I haven't worn any particularly exciting smells, just brought a couple of faves with me (Druid and A Night in the French Quarter). I hope you are all doing well! πŸ’œ

    @Lucchesa I'm so sorry to hear about your shoulder! I hope it gets better soon. @VetchVesper the new challenge is fun! I did the first couple of days and really enjoyed them, will do Day 3 in an hour or two. I wore Druid yesterday (I wanted to feel comfy and Druid is one of my most loved scents, maybe even the very best one πŸ’š). The day before... I'm pretty sure I wore Diana? In any case, I retested it recently and it's really lovely. It reminds me quite a bit of Auriga, which I love but is LE, so it's nice to know there's something in the catalogue that could be a good replacement if I ever need one. @Amazonia, I'll reiterate what I've already said and what others have said, your granddaughter is so very lucky to have you! πŸ’œ Also mad props for keeping up with your workouts despite this stressful situation.

    Smells to Work Out To - 30 Day Challenge

    Hiya my dearest witches! I've also been scarce around here, it's been a weird week for exercise, I was all in a funk but I feel good today and I think I can get back on that horse. I'm gonna give myself a few more days and then follow along with Adriene's new challenge in the new year (usually starts on January 2nd if anyone's interested!). I did go on a nice evening walk for about an hour last night though (wanted to look at that lovely full moon) which was really nice. I didn't wear anything special because it was a spur of the moment thing and I kinda forgot about perfume! I know, the horror! How could one forget about perfume?! I'm excited to hear you love Endless Corridors @Lucchesa! I decided to part with V'al HaNissim after all (it's gorgeous but too rich for me) and I think Endless Corridors might be a beeswax I enjoy more. I'll report back when my decant gets to me! @Amazonia I love the idea of you and Neko dancing together! I have dance parties with myself almost every day (seriously, it's so good for mental health! so much fun and gets you out of your head and inside the body, if that makes sense) which... I guess counts as exercise? πŸ˜‰ I'm dying. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I also can't wait to get my Pumpkin Doob decant!!

    @Lucchesa it was a perfect fit! And Anne Bonny worked pretty well too, as I found out yesterday. I think today might be a no exercise day, some emotional stuff going on and I just want to snuggle up and watch a comforting movie. I'm okay, just need a rest and some processing time. I hope everyone is doing well! πŸ’œ

    Y'all are amazing, thank you for the love. πŸ˜­πŸ’– I did a 40-minute yoga session on Monday, picked one that sounded a bit more challenging so I'm quite pleased with that! I think I'm gonna carry on with this trend, and pulled up Adriene's Yoga for Weight Loss playlist to explore. I wore Life the Sculptor, Moulds Unceasingly, and it was a great match for yoga. I'd say mainly because of the sandalwood, soI think I'm gonna try a different sandalwood scent today, maybe Anne Bonny? I'll report back! Yesterday, I accidentally skipped because I spent way too long on the phone with a friend and the day had gotten away from me by the time I hung up, oops. But today I yoga for sure! @Madame Mew haha fomo is such a problem with BPAL!! I hope you enjoy V'al HaNissim, should be a no brainer if you like beeswax. 😊 @VetchVesper props on the two hours of raking, wow! Sending you strength for the rest of it. Good ol' raking sounds good to me, I have neighbors that are obsessed with leaf blowers and...why?? No offense if any of you use one, it's just. I don't understand. It's one of those weird American things to me. πŸ˜‚ And props to everyone else still going strong!! πŸ’™

    Oh my gods Vetch you are too sweet for checking in on me, and meanwhile I just entirely dropped off the face of the earth!! I've been doing good just very, very busy, and needed some time away from screens in my down time. 😊I've been getting back into yoga last week, yay me! Although today was a gross rainy Sunday kinda day haha. Hoping to start strong again tomorrow though! I'll keep y'all in mind to motivate myself. It finally got cold enough here to break out some cozy scents and/or some sweet favorites that I don't really like wearing in warmer weather, so I wore V'al HaNissim out on a walk the other day and it was perfect! Glad to be back, hugs all around

    Hello my witchy lovelies! I fell off the wagon hard this week, it was a pretty bad mental health week, and I pretty much retreated into myself and did absolutely nothing productive and fell behind on my work. To be honest I don't know if I can get a good exercise routine going while the semester is in full swing, with the end fast approaching. We started much earlier this year because of covid, so I have a shit-ton of stuff due by mid-November, plus I'm helping organizing a fairly large conference (which has been turned into a virtual event) and I'm just very overwhelmed. The cabin fever is also getting to me and I'm just grumpy and sad and annoyed (the Sagittarius rising in me is having a giant whiny baby moment because I haven't gone on a fun adventure in way too long). Blergh. The thing is, I know yoga would help with all of that, but I can't find the energy. Anyway, I think I will not pressure myself into doing anything that does not absolutely need to be done until winter break and prioritize all the things that come along with scary looming deadlines. Break will be very long this year (again, because we started so early), and I'm obviously not going anywhere. I'll have to do some work then too, but it's a very different pressure, so I can take the time to reimplement good habits then. I hope y'all are doing okay, and that your respective family issues have gotten resolved, or that the very least that things are going as smoothly as they can. πŸ’œ

    Sorry for the double post, but quick daily update: did a 40 minute yoga session with Adriene today! Did not wear any scent, patchouli or otherwise, because I have been trying so many things lately that my skin has been a little upset with me. Didn't really get a reaction, but I feel like I'm about to, so I let my skin rest for the day (it's happened before so I know the signs now!). Will cautiously apply a couple of my Liliths after I shower, because I want to continue getting acquainted with these lovely scents. Hope you are all doing well! πŸ’™

    Okay okay I give, I'll try a patchouli blend for yoga today! 😊 I'm really sorry to hear about all of this @VetchVesper, sending you and yours all the love and all the good vibes, I'll keep you in my thoughts, and take good care of yourself. πŸ’›
