what a perfectly lovely story! i could read happy christmas stories all year long and this one made me all mushy at the end. ron was so selfless. i especially like that alone time while they drank their milk, it was very intimate and showed us a bit of ron and hermiones relationship while they're not fighting, while harry's not around, and we don't get to see that often. great job.

Omigosh, I absolutely LOVED this! It was wonderful! So cute! So creative!

Madam Dashwood was so cool! I loved her! Her little note at the end was so creative and so sweet! It makes a good ending sentence too.

Good work!

I want a Ron of my own RIGHT NOW!!!!!! & I want to keep him for ever and ever - *grrr* that Hermione Granger hogging all his cuteness. *squeals and flings arms round Ron's neck* I'm in desperate need of a Ron/Rupert of my own ;oD

Reviewer: AkiDate: 2005-07-29
Reviewid: 128167Chapter: 3
i rather wish that this were the way they'd worked things out in their sixth year, rather than the rather revolting display of immaturity and asinine jealousy that occurred in canon. ^^ anyhow, it made me smile, and even if harry is a bit absent, i'd count it as a lovely, well-characterized and adorable Trio fic. thanks for the pleasant read!

Reviewer: KTDate: 2005-07-02
Reviewid: 125897Chapter: 3
This was sooo of the best r/hr fanfictions I've read. It is funny and clever how you fit in the plot to OotP and remaining true to the canon. The story stays true to OotP and does not conflict with it.

"Why bother sending chaps to Azkaban?" Ron asked in disbelief. "A few minutes in this place would do the trick.--- hilarious

Reviewer: NovaDate: 2005-06-23
Reviewid: 124951Chapter: 3
Ahh that was so cute, I like the creativity that was put into it, most of it was unique yet, still Jo's Harry Potter. I like the fact that all of the perfumes are customized and the little note in the end was like awwww! I liked it very much.

Reviewer: sic itur ad astraDate: 2005-06-08
Reviewid: 123459Chapter: 3
Great interpretation of "unusual perfume" and I loved how you played it off of one of Hermione's insults about him having "the emotional range of a teaspoon"! Fabulous - very sweet :D

Reviewer: Kasey DonahueDate: 2005-05-10
Reviewid: 121842Chapter: 1
Interesting story. I like how you incorperated Harry into the story and that he spent all the money just for her. However, I hate that she thinks it smells bad. If all of it is Ron's emotions for her, then should it smell at least okay, seeing as it was brewed for her particularly? Constructive critism, I really did like the story. Oh and sry if I spelled critism wrong...

I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT! There were some problems with the italics in the first 2 chapters, but I don't care. This is amazing and sweet and fluffy and hilarious and it's AWESOME! More than a teaspoon. Lol. I guess Hermione was wrong--Ron doesn't have the emotional range of a teaspoon--he has the emotional range of a cauldron!

Reviewer: grysterDate: 2005-01-13
Reviewid: 110772Chapter: 3
Adorable :)

And the "~ No House-Elves Were Tested or Enslaved in the Making of This Product." " line was pure genius.

Reviewer: satineDate: 2004-12-03
Reviewid: 106798Chapter: 3
Oh, that was fabulous! I loved how you told us the entire story behind Ron's gift to Hermione. I found Witches' Way and the whole idea of mixing your own perfumes from thoughts and emotions to be very creative, indeed! You've written this wonderfully and it warms my heart when I read about the simple pleasures and joys of Ron and Hermione's relationship. You've done an excellent job.

Reviewer: KariDate: 2004-11-11
Reviewid: 104241Chapter: 3
That was adorable! Why did you stop writing. I wanted to keep reading it, honestly.
My favorite aspect of the story was the way Ron and Hermione's relationship was so realistic to the way it is in the Harry Potter books. The perfume idea was not only cute, but absolutely imaginitive. JK would be proud. Keep up the good work. And do us all a favor...keep writing! :0)

Reviewer: DonDate: 2004-11-05
Reviewid: 103544Chapter: 3
I know this story so well now that I just go to my favorite bits and read them for a little pick-me-up. I love your insight into Hermione. She seems just right, to me. I like her internalized thoughts and emotions. Great work!!

Reviewer: LeiaDate: 2004-10-27
Reviewid: 102656Chapter: 1
Wow. Your characters are right on. Great story. I'd like to read more stuff by you... For it being so utterly obvious that Ron and Hermione are destined for each other...there really isn't enough good R/H fanfic.

Reviewer: CarraDate: 2004-10-18
Reviewid: 101716Chapter: 3
Brilliant! I love the last part, where she read the note that Mrs. Dashwood left in the box. It was very clever. Keep Writing.

Reviewer: jazzypomDate: 2004-10-14
Reviewid: 101430Chapter: 3
Awww, that is *so* sweet! A lovely piece of fiction that shows every reason why this ship works.

Apart from that, it's lovely - snatches of a happy Sirius, a thoughtful and helpful Lupin (aww, Moony), a moody Harry (I hope he has some equanmity in the sixth book) and everything just fit.

Lovely, thanks for making a stormy cold autumn's day so much warmer!

Reviewer: DonDate: 2004-10-14
Reviewid: 101413Chapter: 3
This is one of my absolute favourite stories! I love the emotions you bring out on all sides. I also like the way the story is crafted. The lat chapter starts with Molly saying they cannot go to Diagon Alley. That was a great transition! Anda chance to show that Ron still was not interested in buying Hermione a gift. And the end shifts the focus from Ron to Hermione. That was also well done, Adn rather than have Hermioen voice her opinion on ron, you let Madame DAshwood do so.

Just great!

Wow, that was so amazing and cute! The idea is very unique and seems like it really should be in the Order of the Phoenix! I absolutely LOVED it!

Reviewid: 94413Chapter: 3
Brilliant. I hopped over here from the 'challenge' at FictionAlley. Someone tried yours out. I really like it. I normally don't read R/Hr despite shipping it because it's too mushy our out of character but for the most part the characterization in this was good. I loved the humor.

Reviewer: GinnyPotterDate: 2004-07-27
Reviewid: 94198Chapter: 1
Oh excellent! That was awesome. Please please please please please update really soon! I cant wait!

Reviewer: SarahDate: 2004-07-17
Reviewid: 92845Chapter: 3
Ok, I'm a H/Hr shipper, so normally i wouldn't read this, but I decided to for my Unexpected Task fic. It turned out to be really sweet, and it seemed like it could be something that just wasn't mentioned in canon. It almost convinced me that R/Hr could work. Almost. ;)


Reviewer: BrigantiaDate: 2004-07-17
Reviewid: 92768Chapter: 3
This story was just niffled on Fiction Alley, and I can see why. It's great! It's very sweet, and so funny! Ron is just a treat - so perfectly in character. There's a lot of great lines, but my favorite is this:

"So..." he said slowly, turning it in his hands, "what you mean is... most people get a perfume with - with the emotional range of a teaspoon - and I had a cauldron?"

It's a great reference to Hermione's comment in OotP. And Ron's choice of name for the perfume is terrific. I really like this. :)

Reviewid: 75310Chapter: 3
Very cute interpretation! I loved the idea of being able to make your own perfume with your emotions, and how you proved that Ron doesn't have the emotional range of a teaspoon. Very well written - just, wow.

Reviewer: Dina C.Date: 2004-03-10
Reviewid: 73889Chapter: 3
Okay. Another great story. I love the way you filled in the back story on WHY the perfume was so unusual. And the use of "teaspoon" is brilliant. Another homerun! Go girl!

That was so brilliant! I loved the ending! And it was so clever! All of it. Please write another chapter! I want Hermione to tell Ron how much she appreciated his present!

What a GREAT chapter! :)

"Why bother sending chaps to Azkaban?" Ron asked in disbelief. "A few minutes in this place would do the trick."

You shouldn't write things like that, you know...

I can't burst out laughing at 3 o'clock in the morning!


Reviewer: :)Date: 2003-10-27
Reviewid: 58014Chapter: 3
This is the best story on SQ. The conversation among Fred, George, Ron, and Ginny was perfect. When Hermione lifted the snowflake and looked at Ron through it... it was a beautiful moment and the conversation that followed was one of the best between them I've read in fanfic. I loved the way they both observed each other... R observing H when she came to the door, and H observing R in his pajamas at night. Ron creating the perfume from his thoughts on Hermione was an amazing idea! Funniest part: Mrs. Black screeching and "Silent Night"!

Reviewer: EmmaDate: 2003-10-21
Reviewid: 57251Chapter: 3
I loved this story. You totally capture the moment of Being Fifteen and all that it entails. I also adored the rather pink trip to Witches Way - hilarious, touching. Gorgeous piece.

Reviewer: BaileyMacDate: 2003-10-14
Reviewid: 56508Chapter: 3
Awww!!! This story was so so sweet! Your writing style is just wonderful - you really did a great job of conveying Ron's feelings about Hermione and spending the money, etc. I loved the twist on the "teaspoon" dialog from canon. Brilliant!

Oh, that's *wonderful*. Really great. I came here from Victoria's "Unfit for Society" recs page and I'm glad I did! "Scents and Sensibility"! And Madam Dashwood! Brilliant. I would love to think that this is what really happened when Ron gave Hermione her "interesting" perfume. A cleverly imagined, solidly characterized, and well written story -- thanks for sharing it!

I've just read your little fiction through, and I must say that I love it! I've been a Ron/Hermione shipper since my completion of Book 3! This was a very well-written and well-thought out fiction. Nevertheless, I have a hard time picturing Ron spending all his money in one place! lol.

Reviewer: KatinkaDate: 2003-08-15
Reviewid: 47299Chapter: 3
I love this story! It feels like I'm reading "Finding Lily" in a parallel universe. :D

"Madam Dashwood" -- nice touch. And Ron's disjointed, run-on paragraph is fabulous. WE always knew there was more than a teaspoon inside!

"No House-Elves Were Tested or Enslaved in the Making of This Product." -- snert!

Thank you for gleaning a sweet and tender story out of OotP! I gave a big sigh at that final line.

*squeeee!!* That doesn't even COVER it!! :D You know when you read some really, really cute R/Hr fluff, and end up grinning madly for like 10 minutes afterwards? That's totally how I am right now. :P

I loved the -

"So..." he said slowly, turning it in his hands, "what you mean is... most people get a perfume with - with the emotional range of a teaspoon - and I had a cauldron?"

- that just had me laughing SO hard. XD But you got the linkage into canon with that, and I loved just... *everything* about it. :D

Wonderful job!! :D *huggles R/Hr*
