I use this butter on a daily basis. It smells divine and is such a beautiful morning ritual for loving my body to let it soak into my skin and tend to my body.
So I've only used this body butter once so far (just received it yesterday), and this is the fastest I've ever left a review for something, but after just one application I'm already completely convinced that I know what I'm dealing with, here. This stuff is fabulous. The reviews do not lie. I suspected that I might enjoy this body butter, but did not realize just how hard and fast I'd fall for it. This is only my second body butter purchase: I also have a large jar of the Empress butter, which is so incredible and decadent and has lasted me so long without hardly making a dent in it that I figured I was pretty much set as far as body butters were concerned -- but I thought wrong! The description is spot-on when it refers to this butter as the lighter complement to the rich decadence of the Empress. The texture is very different -- creamier, whereas the Empress is slightly waxy -- melting very quickly on the fingers and absorbing much more easily into my skin. Though the Empress will last me a long time, I can easily see this butter vanishing before I know it! This is partly due to the formula, which is so inviting and has my body begging for *more* of it, and also due to some inherently *addictive* quality that makes it so fun and satisfying to indulge in. Weirdly, I don't pick up much vanilla in the scent -- jasmine seems the dominant note for sure, with a banana pudding-like base (at least in the batch I received) -- but there is a sweetness to it that is perhaps more tactile than olfactory, as I truly feel as if I'm *treating* my skin to the sweetest nectar when I rub this in. I'm not particularly dry-skinned, but my body just drinks this stuff up like it's starving for it. And the results!! WOW -- I feel so soft and supple, relaxed and as delicious as a juicy, ripe fruit. I did a double take when I glanced at myself in the mirror afterwards, honestly feeling like I'd just de-aged by many years. I went to sleep feeling incredible, and woke up with that feeling still noticeably present, my skin still mindblowingly soft and hydrated. I'm already antsy to apply more of this stuff, but don't want to blow through it too fast! This butter has definitely exceeded my expectations!
This one smells sooo luxurious. I love using it as part of my weekly Venus ritual. It eases my social interactions— I find that I am more patient/graceful when wearing it. And it makes me feel like *I* am a treat.
This butter is worth it for the scent alone—divine. It never fails to amaze me how deeply relaxed and at ease I become upon application. Perfect for soothing social anxiety or staying in and luxuriating.
This took me a bit to get used to for some reason, I've only recently found myself using it in regular rotation. Very enjoyable in the daytime! The items from this series really help me with pain relief and relaxation, and result in a much more noticeable physical sensation. The scent is really nice once you get used to it, it does lighten up after initial application even if you are sensitive to floral scents. This series really is lovely to experience. Highly reccomend!
I love the light, buoyant scent and vibe to this body butter. Whenever I wear it, I notice that I get compliments (+ from Libras!) about my hair/appearance. Great for a light social gathering to get into that mood.
I'm not sure what is in this that is so heavenly but I cannot stop huffing this butter and slathering on my hands and under my nose. It's divine. And it immediately relaxes me and makes me feel like I'm floating on a cloud of cotton candy. With a necklace of roses, lily of the valley in my hair, and a cool Greek breeze gently kissing my skin while I'm in a temple, surrounded by the gods and goddesses. It's delicious and magical. If you want to indulge this is your butter.
At first I was overwhelmed with this body butter because it somehow managed to exactly capture the smell of my grandmother. I would have never guessed that this was what she smelled like, as in, I couldn't have asked for it specifically if I had had to seek it out on my own. It was delightful and overwhelming to come across it naturally. It took me a while to be able to really use this offering because of that. It brought me a lot of comfort but didn't feel wearable at first. After a few weeks, it morphed into its own scent for me (or at least that's what it felt like) and it's been very wearable since then. It provided a great relief from grief at first, and now it just provides a great relief generally. I also wear it when I want to feel particularly attractive/beautiful and I do find that it amplifies my own sense of self in those moments. I love the smell and I definitely love the feeling of empowerment that comes with wearing it.
I LOVE this body butter soooooo much! I always come back to this one for something light, sweet, and supple. Each time I put it on, I feel weightless, carefree and ready for all things pleasant to float by me. Thank you Kaitlin for this materia! Its divine!
THE BEST! In the Client Forum not too long ago, a member asked what everyone's "desert island" materia would be (ideally a single Form/ item from a specific series). My answer was that it would probably be this. Aphrodite is my Goddess, so obviously a Venus series is always going to be my favorite, and it's hard to choose one particular thing from a series... but this body butter just feels special to me. I have to remind myself to stop reserving it (I don't want it to ever disappear!) and that a little goes such a long way.
It's difficult to explain why this is sooo gooood, but I think that's part of the combined magic of talismanic body butter & the VAD election itself; there's a wordless energy/ state that defies attempts at explanation, and perhaps that's what one becomes enveloped in when donning this butter-talisman. It's just something that needs to be experienced! Maybe the best way to describe it would be "sensual peace." Feeling really good & relaxed at such a deep level. It's amazing. That opens you up to infinite possibilities, truly.
