    Default Cast A Spell--tell us if you sample

    LuLu Guinness has released Cast A Spell. If you get a chance to sample this or learn if there is any way to order samples, p-l-e-a-s-e share the news. Thanks. The notes look promising and complex.

    From Sephora: Inspired by fairy tales like Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, Cast a Spell is infused with a touch of wickedness, and glittery, frosted, enchanted forests, magic love potions, the richness of Baroque art, and the dance between light and dark, coolness and warmth.

    Notes: Dark Berries, Frosted Blackberry Pulp, Mulberry, Red Currant, Iced Lavender, Lilac Petals, Davana Blossoms, Black Velvet Fig, Amber, Bourbon, White Patchouli.


    Style: Intoxicating. Intriguing. Captivating.

    I wonder what 'white patchouli' is.

    It does sound rather nice though.

    Although it sounds like its on the feminine (subjective,i know) side,i wouldn't mind sampling this one.

    I ordered a bottle of this the day i saw it on sephora. I couldnt resist the notes and the bottle. I'm not good at describing scents or picking out individual notes but i think i can smell the bourbon in this. This is a good fall/winter scent as it is a little heavy. Good scent for strolling through a dark, snowey forest in Norway. Good scent for the Snow Queen or a powerful wizard.....or maybe even Santa Claus. But not Mrs Claus though, not feminine enough for her. Lulu's other scents have been very girly/feminine smelling. Cast a spell is not. I dont think this is as floral as her other scents have been. Its very dark and foreboding. Maybe a little like Nu???? I have not read anything that says Cast a Spell is for women, although i imagine it is. But if there is a scent in her line that could be worn by a guy, it would be this one.

    My local Sephora had this on the shelves and I sampled yesterday...it is pretty good.
    Definitely on the feminine side...soft and berry-like. Once my daughter saw the web description...she said "I WANT THAT ONE"
    So maybe for Christmas...it is a very nice smell.

    White patchouli: They are probably referring to a light patchouli. There are basically 2 versions of patchouli that perfumers use.

    Light: this is a clear (amber-colored) easy to pour essential oil, it is sweet, dry and woody.
    Dark: this is dark, viscous, really hard to pour, it is less refined than the "white". The odor is sweet, woody-musty and almost sickening, this is also known as "native" i.e. distilled in Asia.

    Anyway, I sampled Cast a Spell at Nordstrom's about a week ago. It is lighter than I expected (I expected a heavy scent) especially with all the berries and amber. I am going to have to try it again before I make a final judgement though, because I ended up wearing about 4 different scents.
