Lemon-Scented Sticky Bat

Recommended Posts

Sticky-sweet iced lemon sugar!

Lemon has always done so well on my skin. This scent is no exception. It's so simple yet addicting. I'm ordering TWO back up bottles!

I loved Seven Herbs Charm, and thought it made me smell like a cross between a lemon bar and the lemon Strawberry Shortcake doll. Alas, it only came in imp form and I've been out for ages. With Lemon-Scented Sticky Bat, I was hoping to recapture that.

 

Unfortunately, this is just too sweet on me, in the same way Machu Picchu is, or Four Seasons: Winter. I'm not sure if there's a common note or if my skin is just doing weird things. I wanted more tartness from this, I think. I like the story, though!

In the bottle: Sugared lemon!

 

On my skin, it's super sugary lemon! It smells like sugared lemon candy.

 

After a while, the lemon becomes softer, but it's still sufficiently sugary and lemony.

 

I do get the 'iced' part of the description, but now it's mostly reminding me of a lemon glaze. Now I want a piece of lemon pound cake.

 

I love how sugary this one is. And it lasts!

 

Verdict: I bought a bottle of this one at Drag Con, because I liked it and I'm running low on Happy Baby in a Long Dress, and I'm so glad I did! :wub2: I can see myself wearing this one a lot during the summer months.

I think this is the strongest-throw BPAL I've tried. One dot on one wrist turns me into a sweet citrus sillage storm.

 

Sugary lemon icing. After a minute, it grows a hint of lemon fizz.

 

It's always wild when a constructed note smells so close to the reals. The lemon icing smells just like lemon icing, like the sort of white dribble that has hardened over pastry.

Wet: Sugary lemon candy! Reminds me of some lemon hard candies my grandma used to keep in her house all the time.

 

Dry: Same as the wet stage, only with less throw. There's maybe more of an icing vibe present as well, but no matter how you want to interpret it... it's lots of sugar and lemons. ;)

 

Love love love love love love love this.
