Satan starting from the touch of Ithurle's spear
Second Spring
Meus Amor Aeternus

Candied Apple
La Femme De Satan
Try on skin

How does everyone feel about duct tape crafts?  Any favorite patterns?
I fear it would be something to collect dust and take up excessive space in my house. No, thanks. Are there any flowers you especially like?
When I was 10, I was told that poppy was my birthday flower, and I've had a fondness ever since. Would you be interested in any...

how do you feel about online classes? Like, say, craftsy or creativebug? Or even lynda.com?
I'm a member of Craftsy and I have a few classes there, but I keep forgetting to actually take them.
What do we want from Paintbox Soapworks?
Nothing, please.
If I were to make you some art, would you prefer a frame that hangs or one t...

Blu-ray or DVD?
Either/or. We have a Blu-ray player...we don't use it much.
Game systems - console or computer? Mac/PC? Which console?
Neither really, although we’re a PC household.
Are you dressing up for Halloween and if so do you need any accessories for if?
I’m in Australia, so we don’t really do Halloween, but some of the neighbo...

switch witch questions #2

What is your BPAL "Holy Grail"?
I don’t think I have one. Most of the time if I want something, I go hunting for it and I buy it. So I have ridiculous rares which I paid ridiculous amounts for, but…I have them.
Maybe some more aged Madame Moriarty? But I could just buy some now and hold onto it for a few years so…
Analog or Digital? Or...

Just when I thought I'd gotten out of this...


As in, actual Pumpkin or pumpkin-flavoured or pumpkin-scented?

I’m in Australia, so we’re not huge on Halloween, although I’m seriously considering it since the neighbourhood kids do a bit of trick or treating and we’d only just moved in last year… Also, anything fres...

more testing: seraglio, l'essence le ardeur, joyful moon, black death

Posted by Tielan, 03 August 2015 · 228 views

L'Essence de le Ardeur - roses that turn to powder on my skin - sell.

Seraglio - starts off almond turns to roses and musk pretty fast, but not powdery roses.
Black Death - tobacco, musk, heavy scent, rather masculine, b...

Going through the imps

I have a ridiculous number of imps, gleaned over the course of three or four years of buying ,swapping, and collecting.
Tried this evening from the bottles:
- Peacock Queen : faded really fast
- Silentium Amortis : same
Onto the sale pile, I think.
A couple of imps  that faded really fast and I put them in the 'sale/giveaway' pil...

it has been entirely too long

reviews, sales
So, after three or so years of absence, I've come back. Older, wiser, and rather less smelly than before. But that's okay, because I'm in the process of refining my preferences and finding out what works with my skin these days.
I've come to learn my scents: an amber base with tobacco and a touch of sweetness.
So far, the three scents that a...
