AVPM/S - Umbridge text
I notice there's a review of LaFlamme on bpal.org, but the perfume oil isn't listed on the TAL website. Is it available at the website anyway and the site just hasn't been updated with new scents, or am I out of luck and will have to make an ISO post soon?

vintage
I have an imp of Aegis, and, quite frankly, am unsure what to use it for. I've looked around, but can't find much information on anyone using it.

Any ideas/suggestions?

I'm also *very* new to all of this, so please be patient with me if I ask some stupid questions. :)
28th-May-2008 10:28 am - How can I get back my money?
To cut a long story short, I returned some defective goods to a company and they are supposed to refund me my money. I sent out the goods with tracking and they claimed they have not received it. I just found out they have already received it a long time ago. I dunno if they dont want to refund me my money or are just out to cheat me. It's a lot of money. About 100+ dollars. I really want my money back. What oil can I use? Im getting very desperate and upset. I dont know what else to do. :(

Last week or so, I posted an ISO in sinandsalvation for La Flamme, because (a) I love the smell, and (b) it made the boyf absurdly passionate. For, like, 18 hours. I really want TAL to start making it in gallon jugs.

On Tuesday of this week, I went to interview for a summer job. Knowing that most of the money oils aren't made for skin wear, I daubed my conjure bag (mojo hand, nation sack, gris-gris, whatever) with Wealthy Business and Gainful Employment, and slipped it discreetly into my suit pocket. (I love the label that decantmonkey made for Wealthy Business -- a color photo of a city skyline. Perfect.) For skin wear, I used Charisma -- which is also what I wear to give poetry readings!

Result: Hired as a contractor within 30 minutes of walking in the door, with boss thinking I possibly qualify for an even better job at the same company.

TAL, I love you. I love you. I love you.

There seem to be a LOT of love oils out there, specifically on the TAL website.

Amor...Blinding Glory of Love...Dixie Love Perfume...how to choose? It sounds like they work in subtly different ways, but are close enough to make it difficult for me to choose between them.

I'm thinking of getting some imps off a forum and trying out the different ones, as I'd rather drop $25 on something I know I will use (and I just cannot spare 100 clams just for love oils right now). So, for the record: I'm single, straight female-type creature with no particular love interest in mind (though I do have requirements - no criminal record, gotta like cats, be gainfully employed, picky-pants stuff like that *g*). And Amor, Blinding Glory of Love, Dixie Love Perfume, AND Queen of the Nile all seem more or less appropriate.

Those who have worked with the love oils, can you give me some feedback? What has worked for you? What has bombed? Do you use as a perfume, anoint candles, or both?
21st-Apr-2008 09:10 pm - Q7, Charisma report
lesbian, butch/femme
I wore a dab of Q7, a dab of Charisma, and a splash of Storyville to a women-only gathering this weekend. I put the Q7 in my hair so its scent didn't mix badly with the others.

My impression? I remembered why doing love & attraction magick is a bad thing--it works on the user 3 times as much as it works on its targets. Unfortunately, my hostess' mother ended up being home, so flirting possibilities were pretty much nonexistent and I went home rather frustrated. However, the Charisma seems to have worked just fine--I felt entirely at ease and one attendee later described me as "droolworthy". :D

Has anyone else tried Q7? How did it work for you?

ETA: OMG, I got asked out on a date as a result of that night. *squees* I guess the Q7 worked after all!

I splurged - LIEK WHOA - on two planetary amulets from TAL and their corresponding oils - Sol and Venus. Since the TAL oils are, without a doubt, the best and most magically effective ritual oils I've ever used, I thought the amulets would be great, too.

Well, I HAZ AMULETS. And oils. They arrived today, and I'm keeping them on my altar, in their plastic bags, until I'm ready to do the rituals around them.

The Sol one is bright metallic gold fabric, and smells like a sugar cookie! I get a wonderful feeling off of it even wrapped and not charged. Meanwhile, Venus is green and leaking some powdery substance (cinnamon? clove?) and smells rather like Road Opener - minty/floral.

Sol oil smells almost like lemonade, I srsly want to drink it (no, I won't but it smells THAT good!). Venus smells kinda funny, almost like overripe fruit. I hope that doesn't mean it won't work well for me.

I will keep everyone posted as to how they work for me when I've done the rituals around them. I've gotten into precisely calibrating my magical work and so I won't be consecrating and charging my Sol amulet until Sunday and then the Venus one probably not until the new moon in Taurus. And of course I will post to this community, my results. But the Sol amulet in particular just feels so wonderful to me.

This is spinning off some comments in previous threads. Anyone notice a difference, effectiveness or ritual-wise, with imps you buy off the forums or LJ or wherever, that have been decanted and possibly passed around several times, versus bottles you buy fresh from the Lab or imps that you get from a decant circle (and not passed around a lot)?

So far I haven't noticed much difference. However, I have to wonder if imps that get passed from person to person pick up on everyone's energy on the way. Maybe I've just had the good luck to get imps from people with good auras or something!

Just an FYI:

Many of your reviews have been reposted in whole or in part at Pheromone Talk, which is apparently a forum for the company Smart Pheromones. We were informed of this at the forum earlier today, and I thought I'd let you know that I found a few posts from here as well when surveying the matter to see how extensive the reposting is (if it's just one person versus many).

Please excuse if this is the wrong place or an inappropriate question, and feel free to delete. But I noticed recently a circle, and one of the items was "Temple of the Raven of War." I could not find this in any of the reviews on the forum. I am unfamiliar. Anyone in the know do a quick and dirty explanation?
