Vaginal Tales of the Nocturnal Palace

Recommended Posts

I knew there had to be something creamy in it. I tend to forget the notes after ordering. Anyways, this is such a beautiful scent. It's grounded, somewhat flowery, & the mallow + vanilla cream is so complementary to the blue lotus & lotus root. My wife loves it, & i plan to let her have it.

Vaginal Tales of the Nocturnal Palace is a beautiful lotus scent. The lotus isn't bubblegum, nor is it aquatic. It's simply delicate and beautiful. For lovers of lotus, this is a must. The vanilla cream and mallow works wonders with it. It's delicate and dainty and creamy lotus. If you love light florals and ethereal scents, I’d recommend. What's not to love?

 

For a delicate scent, it surprisingly has a lot of lasting power. Admittedly I spilled a tiny bit while applying but it lasts longer than most oils tend to last on my skin. Definitely keeping this.

In the bottle: Delicate pink-blue lotus. 

 

Wet on my skin: Stronger pink-blue, creamy lotus and mallow. It's a bit reminiscent of Poor Monkey for a minute there.

 

Dry: If you liked Minamoto No Yorimasa and the Lotus Flower and/or Poor Monkey, you're probably going to like this. Creamy, sweet, delicate lotus and mallow, and just a poof of amber powder. It's a very pastel blue and pink scent, and despite being soft and delicate, is actually fairly strong in terms of throw. Not overpowering, but you're definitely going to have clouds of poofy, creamy lotus and mallow making themselves known to you and anyone around you whenever you move. The lotus ends up *very* slightly on the floral shampoo side, but only if you get in pretty close and take a big sniff. Soft, lovely, creamy-sweet. Just a beautiful scent, and I'm glad I have a bottle. ❤️ 

Edit: 9 days later, this has had time to settle a bit and it's even better! And I came to a realization. After this has been on for a while, it mellows a little into something that smells reasonably like a bowl full of Lucky Charms marshmallows soaking in milk. Not the cereal, just the marshmallows after they've had time to soften and melt a little into the milk, sweetening it.

In the bottle this smells very soft and creamy and marshmallowy. Having been thus deceived, I slathered and promptly got backhanded across the face by lotus. 
 

Thus far, this has a tendency to stab the old temples a bit if I take a deep whiff of it (which I have done repeatedly since slathering, because I don’t learn). But it wants to settle down into sweet creamy poofiness. If I stop masochistically huffing it for a minute and let it get comfy, I imagine it’ll fade into something quite pretty.   
 

30 min later edit: I was right.

Oh, mm. Creamy pink and blue lotus. Soft, cushiony, billowing floof-pillows of creamy marshmallow pink and blue lotus.

 

When I saw @DiesMali's review, I thought I might be in trouble here, because Poor Monkey is much in my wheelhouse. And, actually, pretty much every part of that review is summing up my experience with this one, right down to the Lucky Charms milk soak.

 

That phrase about lip colors: "My lips but better"? This is "my Lucky Charms but better."

 

The one drawback is that Vaginal Tales becomes quite strongly musky-perfumey on me in drydown. I will need to tread more lightly in the application of this one next time, even if the opener is divine. Heed ye the reviews: This one packs a punch.

 

Thankfully, the musk-blask eventually relaxes, leaving behind a less overwhelming beauty.

This one was the one Luper I blind bottled from the update. But I should have gone the decant route.

 

I thought that this would be a win for me because Volcano in Springtime has lotus root (which didn't turn to bubblegum on me) and Venus Caelestis works for me with its blue lotus. But I guess the two together result in TOO MUCH LOTUS for me. It's pink and dainty, and not quite bubblegum, but it is still very sweet. It's backed by the vanilla cream, with the mallow really blooming after several hours of wear and making this a floofy pink scent. I'm reminded of Mavis' outfit from Fairy Tail, but if it had more frills. :P The white amber is not a main player here, but I think it helps ground the other notes and add a perfume-y quality to the scent to keep it from becoming too cloying.

 

I don't dislike this, and maybe it will be a winner with more rest, but for now, I keep thinking I'd rather bypass the lotus and get straight to the vanilla cream and mallow... which means I should just wear Stekkjarstaur.
