There are days when you are doing absolutely everything, and somehow you manage to balance it all with aplomb. This scent is for those days, both to reward you for coping well and to encourage it to continue: earth to ground you, incense to soothe the scattered mind and help you collect your thoughts, beloved frankincense for a touch of ancient luxury in your everyday life, two steady woods, and a sweet cola drink to help keep you perky and alert.
Incense, cola, frankincense, woods both sharp and creamy, and a hint of rich, grounding earth.

In the bottle: Soapy and floral, familiar. maybe the tiniest cola-y twang.
wet on skin: less soap, no cola, no floral, something. fresh, clean, grandma's hall bathroom. quaint.
Starts drying it gets warmer and more like the bottled scent, tiniest hints of the cola, but still just very...
--not the greatest thing in the world, but i very much enjoy the scent. for something it was never intended to be.

wet on my skin: coke! coke and soap, which is more pleasant than i would have expected from that combination.
as it dries, it becomes a lot soapier on me. i'm not complaining, it's not a bland dial bar or a sharp soap like in public restrooms but a really nice lotiony soap that you'd find at a nice hotel with a big bathtub... with enough of a hint of cola to feel like you're sipping one in the tub (or, if you're like me, sipping a rum and coke). and honestly, there's nothing more relaxing than that. when it dries more, more of the incense peeks out. very soothing.

Wearing this one makes me feel like a sweet and mellow woodsy mama sipping on a cola drink in an autumn tree. It fades into a very pleasant subtle smell that really does make me feel collected. This will be my go-to scent when I feel hectic and need a good olfactory grounding.

This is the most. amazing. smell. ever. It's quite sweet in the bottle and while wet--it really does smell like you just dosed yourself in Coke--and then the incenses really pick up on me as it dries.
I tried my squee on my birthday--because TIGERS!!!--and I walked around all day sniffing my wrist. This caused my coworkers to look at me oddly, and I cared not. I SMELLED AMAZING COULD THEY NOT TELL?
Unfortunately for me, I immediately lost the squee (...I still can't figure out where it went, I swear I recall putting it in my purse) and I am sure my <a href="http://nooooooooooooooo.com/">NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO</a> when I realized this echoed through the world with pain and agony and such, and I promptly ran home to order the full sized bottle.
Upon it arriving--after a non particularly relaxing vacation I might add, so it showing up made me feel very cheery--I put it down somewhere absently while unpacking and then lost it for three hours. I made both my husband and our cat sitter help me turn the apartment upside down until I located it.
TOTALLY WORTH IT.

I just can't say how much I love this. It makes me feel calm, collected, and composed. No joke. It isn't super strong (and I wish it lasted just a little longer, but it's really hot and humid here, so I can't complain too much), but it's subtly sweet for a long time after everything else fades out. A definite re-order :)

It's a close fight between this and Sparkle Receptors for TRUE AND ULTIMATE FAVORITE, but I think Wrestling Tigers emerges the victor by virtue of being a little bit more "grown up". I get a great mix of wood smells with just enough sweetness to be awesome. This is a great everyday scent that's not too "girly" or overtly masculine, and I feel equally at home going on a wild adventure or curling up with a book after one while smelling like this.

This fragrance is the best! I've never liked traditional womens' fragrances, probably from reading too many fantasy novels where all the women smell like spices and fresh mown hay. Wrestling Tigers is warm and spicy without being overpowering. I have loved all the fragrances I've bought from Zomg, but this is my favorite.
