Hell's Belle - all the way!
I'm actually searching for more scents like Hell's Belle - so recs are appreciated! I haven't come across any other scents that are similar. I love the creaminess/spice. I adore magnolias and gardenias also. They remind me of home because they grow everywhere here in Louisiana!

Marquise de Mertuil is also in this category. The peach is a neat twist, and don't be scared of the vetiver. This vetiver just smells warm and dark, not acrid or scary.

Spooky Action at a Distance is a great "floriental" -- rose tinged resins, with a bit of a dusty vibe. A gorgeous take on "old lady" perfume, to be honest.
I'm testing Chimera as I type this. It seems to get a lot of love around here and I can see why. It's about as close to a traditional oriental as I have encountered from BPAL. I honestly don't get a floral note, but many people do get the honeysuckle based on reviews. I get mostly copal warmed by cinnamon with myrrh hanging on in the background and maybe the faintest touch of floral sweetness. A really smooth and spicy, slightly floral oriental.

ETA that i tested Winter at the Capitol and although it is lovely on its own i wouldnt classify it as spicy or resiny. the florals are similar and its lovely in its own way but the overall vibe of Winter is a much lighter floral with a hint of that white floral soapiness (possibly from the iris?)

Volcano in Springtime was entirely vanilla cream and sandalwood on me, no floral notes, but I enthusiastically second Cave of Treasures and The Bride.
This is a lab discussion thread, not a post thread, but I'll add that Three Couples HG from this year's Lupers is an amazing gently-spiced fig & orange blossom that pairs beautifully with spicy florientals and that I'd kill to have in perfume oil form.
