I picked up two Chaos Theories as a result of selling a few bottles at BPAL and boy am I glad I did! Sadly, neither has much stay. But they're so delicious I don't care.
CT IV: DCCCXXXI (831) is LEMON!!!! with the capitals and exclamation points in the bottle. Not sweet, either but tart, whole lemons--peel, pulp, juice, flower. I LOVE IT. My mouth waters when I sniff it. I am a fool for lemon and I so, so wish this had more stay.
CT IV: MLVII (1,057) was described to me as wine, but if it's wine, it's very young wine. In fact, I'd say it's more like grape SweeTarts, which is fine by me. It's tart, fruit-and-hibiscus--akin to Boo Bam, which I adore. Again, hardly any stay.
So: CT mostly FTW!
The nice thing about little stay is that I could review all three bottles in one day. The last is Candy Butcher, one of the CD scents:
An exquisite, enigmatic woman sidles up to you, bearing a tray of strange, dusty curios, chocolate creatures, serpentine taffy, and candied skulls. Her skin is dusky, her eyes are heavy-lidded and sensual, her hair is the fine, soft white of spun sugar, and her skin is softly scented with cocoa. She holds a shrunken head aloft, and beckons.
Dark chocolate with a heavy cream undertone.
In the bottle: Nutella! or--what is that hazelnut liqueur the monks make? That one!
Wet: The cocoa and cream start to come out, but I still smell the Nutella. Very sweet.
Dry: Cream, and not as sweet, but that's not saying much. The cocoa and hazelnut are still there. I think No1 and No2 are going to argue over the right to wear this one.
The next morning: Still faintly there, mostly cream with a little cocoa.
