I picked up Lokelani tonight from Black Violet... I waffled between waiting for a sale or not, but decided that getting down with the DC Valentine's release is stressful enough, so I don't need to be a sale ninja all over the internet. :lol: I can't wait until it get's here!

 

Anyone else excited for the BlackBox? I feel like March is never going to come, but I know it will sneak up on me so quickly - I've been watching her FB (one of the few that shows up in my feed) and I don't think she's mentioned how many slots there will be? But it is only quarterly, so it will probably be pricey; hopefully those two things will combine to make a decent number of openings! :o

I'm crossing my fingers about Blackbox, but my sub karma has been so strong over the past year that I know it must come to an end some time soon, so I'm not holding my breath.  I'm still going to set an alarm and try for it when the specific time is announced!

 

In perfume news, my scent o' the day!  BPAL Pursue Rabbit: 

 

 

vanilla-infused sandalwood with wild black tobacco, white tea leaf, matcha, white musk, orange blossom, pale incense, and opium tar.

 

It was created as a Kickstarter reward for Century Guild, an art gallery in Los Angeles, and inspired by a piece by the artist Gail Potocki from her Fragmented Alice series.  It was limited to fifty bottles, and the Kickstarter levels that included it sold out in something like fifteen minutes after it was announced.  Speaking of indie karma, I was lucky enough to get one of the Kickstarter slots.  Oh, man, I *love* this scent, but I rarely wear it due to its very, *very* limited nature.

Haus of Gloi just sent out a newsletter for their valentines release this 1/25!  Who Needs Love sounds amazing

Valentine's Release Jan 25th at Noon PST

77.jpg

Hey everyone! Our Valentines release is going to be short and sweet this year. There are a few formula changes on some returning scents and we've got two new scents we're adding to the lineup. Risque is less sharp and much more smooth of a scent this year. We're using a softer leather note and have dropped the agarwood attar in place of a lovely warm amber incense note. First Blush is our newest scent and it's a lovely fresh spring scent. There's another new blend as well, but I think I'll let that be a surprise as you read on!

 

Who Needs Love

A mahogany box filled with chocolaty orbs, coated in crystallized coffee, filled with a pomegranate and raspberry filling. (Bubbling scrub, Emulsifying scrub, Pumpkin butter, Whipped soap, Perfume oil, Hair oil)
 

Odette

Clean sun dried linens, tuberose, ginger lily and white musk.
(Bubbling scrub, Emulsifying scrub, Pumpkin butter, Whipped soap, Perfume oil, Hair oil)
 

First Blush

Tahitian vanilla bean, white tea, lavender and peach.
(Bubbling scrub, Emulsifying scrub, Pumpkin butter, Whipped soap, Perfume oil, Hair oil)
 

Cozy Rose

Cozy Sweater and our Rose City blended together harmoniously.
(Bubbling scrub, Emulsifying scrub, Pumpkin butter, Whipped soap, Perfume oil, Hair oil)
 

Risque

A leather whip, red musk, cast aside roses and an intoxicating touch of amber incense.
(Pumpkin butter, Whipped soap, Perfume oil, Hair oil)
 

Come Hither

Based off of traditional herbs and roots used in Hoodoo to draw and attract a lover, or entice the one you've already ensnared! Bourbon vanilla, tonka bean, a touch of rose oil, Queen Elizabeth (orris) root, saffron and a touch of honey to sweeten the whole deal.
(Pumpkin butter, Perfume oil, Hair oil)

 

 


BUTTERBOMBS
   
Milk & Carnation

A blend of soft milk and carnations.



Pink Champagne

Bubbly champagne with strawberries and pink grapefruit.
 

Hot Wax

Warm sweet beeswax.
 

Lavender Forest

A blend of Bulgarian lavender, scots pine, amyris and frankincense.
 



LIP BALMS

Red Velvet Cake
 
Pink Champagne
 
Cocoa Rose
 

Vanilla Cherry

I think I'm going to get

  • Odette in a whipped soap and perfume sample (it's either going to be awesome or terrible, I can't tell which, but it reminds me of Velvet Tuberose from B&BW)
  • Come Hither perfume sample
  • Who Needs Love pumpkin butter if I can get a mini
  • First Blush....not sure what yet. It sounds so great but I'm having trouble deciding.

Not even considering bath bombs or lip balms to soften this financially.

The Cake is a Lie by One Hand Washes The Other, and Sweetness by Little Batch Apothecary. Both smell like a glazed lemon poundcake. OHWTO's is lighter and slightly less lemony, or at least it is in the solid version. Both have great staying power.

I've asked this before on IMAM, but I'm wondering if anyone here could give me suggestions! I'm looking for a perfume that's mostly mossy with minimal woody scent -- and ideally with a tiny bit of white flower and/or musk. I got DC's Serpentina based on someone's suggestion and it's almost there, but not quite. It's too sweet/grassy and too sharp -- I'm looking for something more mellow. Though Serpentina was a good amount of "green", if that makes sense.

 

Also, I'm happy that HoG's new collection doesn't appeal to me, except for maybe one or two scents. Thank goodness -- the less I buy while the Canadian dollar is down, the better.

I'm so excited for that one. I'm such a sucker for scents like that!

 

I've heard it's a pretty close dupe for Ghost Puffs, so I asked for a sample in my last order! (I LOVE THEIR SCENTS. LOOOVE. But I haaate how long the TAT has become!)

@@ohsailor, pllllz peep the HoG list and let me know whatchu wannnnt :P

 

I didn't even see this!! I feel bad because I want so much. I'm thinking:

 

Come Hither in  full perfume, and hair oil

 

First Blush in full perfume, hair oil, whipped soap

 

Cozy Rose in full perfume, maybe hair oil but probably not (I'm always afraid I'm going to fall in love with a fragrance and regret not getting everything when I could!)

 

Sample of Risque

 

Lippies in Red Velvet (if it includes the frosting in the smell/flavor... I know that's weird, but that's what makes red velvet for me lol) and Vanilla Cherry

 

 

Maybe PM me?? Like maybe you just get the products in First Blush and I do everything else. Or just get the whipped soaps and lippies and I'll get the perfumes and and hair oils. There's no way I'm letting you get all of that, AT FREAKING ALL, AND DON'T YOU DARE DO IT, because I've asked for so much already. Ahhhh seriously you don't have to get me anything

You could try Oakmoss Gown by Black Violet.

Hm, I'm not going to be around for the first few hours of the HoG Valentine release.  Assuming it's a stampede like past releases, maybe I'll just wait and see if there's a re-release.  Plus then I can get impressions from all you lovely ladies :)

 

Or maybe I'll just get lucky and there will be some leftovers of the stuff I want when I get home!  I love leather based scents, so I want to try Risque, and Odette sounds different from anything I have right now, so I'm curious about that one.  The rest, they sound good, but I'll live if I don't get em.

@ Apparently their VDay release isn't as much as a *bleep*show as Fall/Winter so maybe you'll luck out on the initial release??

I have too many orders coming. -_- I placed an order from the Alchemic Muse VDay release and pared it down from a $60 order to a $24 one... ugh, I could have bought everything, but I got the Voodoo perfume oil and the Jezebel body gloss. I have a Hair Mist back-up, or I would have gotten another one, plus several Body Whips and perfumes.

 

I've also ordered from Alkemia - not one that gets a lot of mention, but they have lovely scents, and the TAT and shipping time are good, pretty much on par with say, DC. I got the 3/$30 with Moroccan Tea (my FAVORITE), Falling Stars on Winter Solstice, and New Orleans Love Spell. The love spell one is the only one of the three I am buying blind because they didn't have in stock the one I wanted, ah well.

 

I'm trying to take advantage of these late winter releases because I don't usually tend to favor spring/summer scents - I like heavy fragrance, and fruits/fresh florals give me the headaches, LOL. :ph34r: So I will probably be trying some of the permanent scents from different companies over the summer.

    • I went to a function in August and I was used mascara. Since then the eyelashes of my eyes have become very thin. I did not benefit from the remedies. Right now my eyes look so bad because of eyelashes. Please suggest me a remedy for growing eyelashes.
    • I started using e.l.f. eyelid primer lock and didn't have any problems.  Just recently when I reordered the product, the container was a different color though the product color is the same.  I read the information from each one and one is made in China (new one) and my old one is made in USA.   I started using the China made one and my eyes are starting to become irritated. I'm not sure if it's the eye lock primer or a new body lotion I just started using (Nivea). I'm eliminating the Nivea to see if perhaps it's the China made eye lock e.l.f product.   Has anyone else had any similar issues with China vs USA made?
    • Yes, poker is quite interesting for me. But I don't play for money..
    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now. 
    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
