Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Love Potion Magickal Perfumerie pheros

This is an overview review of the Love Potion Magickal Perfumerie pheromone blends. I haven't tried them all of course, but have tried many and it's enough to allow me to report that some work very well and some less so. I suspect like all things that this is a function of chemistry, so you'll have to try them out yourself for effect, but I can say that it's worth playing with. Many of her blends tend to be gourmand/foody/super sweet so if this isn't your ideal of perfume, select carefully. The pheromone blends are also available unscented, which makes them useful for layering with your own favorite fragrances. The phero blends I find work best for me are Perfect Match (meant to promote trust, snuggling, a sense of perfect mate) Lumina (to make you sparkle, attract positive attention from both genders, uplift mood) and Topper (a finishing spray that lends a feeling of youth and vitality, uplifts mood, promotes confidence.) These three truly do elevate my mood and can get me through rough emotional trials. The sexy blends are less successful for me and I find that anything with copulins--a chemical produced by females when ready to mate--smells nasty and strongly on me. Her cop blends tend to be super strongly sweet to cover the copulin fragrance--Titillating Temptress is an exception, being a resinous coffee blend--so I end up swapping those away. Her shop is fun to play in, though, and while she's discontinued my all time favorite (Allumette-a vanilla musk with Perfect Match) she is always adding new fragrances. I'd say my record with liking her scents is about 70% like 30% hate, higher than BPAL anyway. Message me with questions if you like: I've tried many of her fragrances. So far, still having fun with it!

A nice warm spicy cinnamon Vanilla like a candle store in October with it's Halloween stuff out. Still, enough like a candle scent that I wouldn't buy it.
Listed notes: Bitter Orange, Asian Pear, Watery Apricot, Casablanca Lily, Ylang Ylang, Karma Fleur, Rose de Mai, Iris, Cashmere Musk, Benzoin. On me: White floral. The pear and watery notes add a little something to the lily, but overall it's merely another pleasant white floral. Slightly metallic edged, with the iris. Definitely classy and lovely, but not different enough for me.
Plastic leather, sort of awful, fades out to barely there iris and powdery almond-heliotrope with leather hints. Really doesn't work well on me. Certainly not worth the price. There are better leathers by far for my skin chemistry.

Complex, sweet, slightly spiced. Sweet melon and perfume-y vetiver that smells like sandalwood. It's nice, but not me at all. Mostly the notes all blend together in a pleasant but undecipherable mass. Elegant, but to me overcomplicated. To someone else, this will be heaven: Soft, pretty, well spoken. Also fairly sheer and not a lot of sillage

Vanilla, musk, floral notes Argh. While nothing bad, it's a whole lot of NO for me. Baby powder vanilla/musk with lily of the valley or gardenian/jasmine, it's babies and vintage cologne that reminds me of someone I didn't like much, so it's pretty nasty on me. I ended up scrubbing it. That being said, for those who like white floral fragrances with baby powder backings, this is your scent.

Listed notes: African orange flower, vanille, myrhh, coconut and cacao On me: Wow. I don't really get single notes, but the overall melange is gorgeous; sweetly fragrant flowers in a creamy soft base. A lovely elegant white silk type of fragrance. Niiiccceee. But dries down ultimately into a hairspray scent. Disappointed, because I was loving the first four hours.
Light, very sheer floral almost. Nice, but so faint. On a second try, itwent on just like Fresh Step Multi Cat kitty litter, the same perfume, but dried down to a lightly candy floral scent. On full dry down it smelled like a sweet clean white flower. Another try brought soft, almost bannana fruit that dried to a vanilla makeup base. Hints of wood, amber and fruit but nicely blended and nothing standing out. I liked it then. Still, this changes too much for me to purchase more. Some scents just can't be trusted depending on the weather, what I ate yesterday and my mood. Interesting ride here, though.

Wow, I didn't get anything like the previous reviewers. I got barnyard, recycled hay, leather musk and animalic notes. This is very much like Kublai Khan and Aftelier's Blond Tabac on me. Totally nothing like the listed notes, but a warm animal barnyard scent. Huh. Interesting and fairly evocative, but I"m pretty sure my SO wouldn't find me sexy smelling like I just spent an afternoon shoveling out the stables. Wow. Skin chemistry is an amazing thing, and another reason I discount totally people Like Luca Turin: One opinion is one person's opinion and has no relevance on my own experience with anything. You have to try it yourself. This one is worth trying for anyone who likes the old style French classics.
Listed notes: Sea moss, water lily, and aquatic notes On: Lovely marine scent that isn't as aquatic as it's salt water. Rather fun, though almost single-noted and not complex. Might mix really well with a light rose.

Really? I didnt' get any of the listed notes. On me, it smells like melon, fresia and that fake but nice 'cotton' note the big chains use. It's okay, but really watery and householdish, like fragrance for a detergent or a hand soap or body splash. Very very meh, while still being pretty. Won't buy, but wouldn't throw out a body wash given me as a gift either.

Listed notes: Lavender, cinnamon, nutmeg, cedar, sandalwood. On: A bit masculine, but in a wonderful way: cool lavender/aromatic herbal with warm spices over. A very nice, almost Christmas scent in the warm spices. Spice, eucalyptus, fruity pine: almost a rose potpourri vibe. Definitely a holiday scent to me. Nice.

Notes: Candied apple, rose, tabacco, patchouli On me: Delicious! Ambre Russe without the booze and sweat. Lovely metallic amber with sweet golden notes (must be apple). Just love this one. Second try, smells very strongly like Ambre Narguile. Like nearly exact. Worth it if it's cheaper, but already having both the abovve listed, I won't buy this until I run out of the others. One only needs so many thick, sweet ambers. Still, lovely

Listed notes: Bergamot, ginger, cumin, amber, agarwood, cistus, cedar. On: Woody, peppery, nicely spikey scent but the cumin is distinct and sweaty. In the end, it's like indian spices in a cedar cabinet. Pass.

Listed notes:Clary sage, pepper, nutmeg, incense, cedar. On: A lovely peppery scent. Nutmeg and sage are clear, plus black pepper. Reminds me very strongly of something else, almost as if this was a dupe of a more popular or French house perfume, but I like it anyway. Too bad it isn't priced like a dupe
