Topics I've Started

  1. Numb v2

    09 February 2009 - 04:26 AM

    This scent is similar to the original but there is difference right off the top.

    Comparing this to the original you get a much softer less intense medicinal scent then you get in the bottle of the original. It has a softer, more powdery floral scent from a flower I just can't place.

    This one on at first is so much lighter and softer then the original. Again the new floral note in it offers a light sweetness and delicateness. It almost disappears for a second, but a little more sniffing brings it back. Next to the original in this stage shows two totally different scents, but one's that are clearly related at the same time.

    In the end this scent has many of the notes that made me fall in love with Numb, but with an added softness that reminds me of that soft floral of Havisham or some of Beth's other older florals.

    If you are a floral lover, or like a classic feminine scent you are going to go weak in the knees for this one!! I don't tend towards either but I still love this one!!!
  2. Eat Me

    18 April 2006 - 08:12 PM

    EAT ME
    Soon her eye fell on a little glass box that was lying under the table: she opened it, and found in it a very small cake, on which the words `EAT ME' were beautifully marked in currants.

    `Well, I'll eat it,' said Alice, `and if it makes me grow larger, I can reach the key; and if it makes me grow smaller, I can creep under the door; so either way I'll get into the garden, and I don't care which happens!'

    She ate a little bit, and said anxiously to herself, `Which way? Which way?', holding her hand on the top of her head to feel which way it was growing, and she was quite surprised to find that she remained the same size: to be sure, this generally happens when one eats cake, but Alice had got so much into the way of expecting nothing but out-of-the-way things to happen, that it seemed quite dull and stupid for life to go on in the common way.


    Three white cakes, vanilla, and red and black currants.

    BPAL’s Eat Me is not for eating. Please use common sense, and remember: perfume oils are for external use only.


    Tried at will call.

    First sniff sweet yummy and foody!

    On this one is cakey and delicious but it is in no way as heavy as some of the other foody blends (gluttony, beaver moon and the like). This one is so sweet and light I almost lost it at one point and decided to add one more drop to see it out. This is so tasty and might lead some of you over to the foody side.

    Before this was brought out to sniff I had asked a labbie how she thought this smelled and she said a watery version of Beaver Moon and I have to say I so see that description in it. There is something slightly watery about this. Maybe Alice had already begun to cry before she ate this little morsel.
  3. Tweedledee

    18 April 2006 - 08:00 PM

    Tweedledum and Tweedledee
    Agreed to have a battle!
    For Tweedledum said Tweedledee
    Had spoiled his nice new rattle.
    Just then flew down a monstrous crow,
    As black as a tar-barrel!
    Which frightened both the heroes so,
    They quite forgot their quarrel.


    TWEEDLEDEE: Ridiculous! Kumquat, white pepper, white tea and orange blossom.


    I tried this one at the willcall and it is so not like I had expected. It starts at a strange green jumble of scents. It is sweet and edible but not quite distiguishable at first. Then as the time goes by it developes fruitier notes. Then on me a sweet lime fragrance came up. It reminds me in some ways of Detox but at the same time is totally different in the back notes. It would make a great refreshing summer scent.
  4. Death on a Pale Horse

    19 December 2005 - 07:12 PM

    And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

    The End of All Things: empty white musk and mint seeped with solemn lavender, doleful patchouli and vetiver, scythe-sharp yuzu and lime, with geranium bourbon, white sandalwood and calla lily.


    In the Imp: A deep scent of musk and patchouli with a subtle flower backdrop

    on wet: This scent is not as strong or dark as I would have thought, first reading the description. Its a bit ozoney with its perfect blend of floral and deep. Nothing is coming forward on me everything is in balance making it difficult to pick out any one scent.

    drydown: The deeper scents are coming forward but thankfully not the vetiver (which does not like me). This is becoming very patchouli musk forward. The Sandalwood also seems to be coming forward as well while the florals seem to have all ran away. This is a darker scent now. Wow the Sandalwood is making this so nice!

    Overall: A well blended scent with a lovely sandalwood scent with at some sniffs the tiniest tinge of white florals to the back.

    For me personally I never would have picked this scent since many of the listed notes don't like me at all. I must say its not as masculine as I would have first thought and smells really nice on the dry down. Though its not me I have to say this is one of those scents that reminds me sometimes I have to just give in and try something new even if I think the notes will do horrors to me. This so much nicer then I ever would have thought!!
  5. The Black Tower

    01 August 2005 - 07:08 PM

    Say that the men of the old black tower,
    Though they but feed as the goatherd feeds,
    Their money spent, their wine gone sour,
    Lack nothing that a soldier needs,
    That all are oath-bound men:
    Those banners come not in.

    There in the tomb stand the dead upright,
    But winds come up from the shore:
    They shake when the winds roar,
    Old bones upon the mountain shake.

    Those banners come to bribe or threaten,
    Or whisper that a man's a fool
    Who, when his own right king's forgotten,
    Cares what king sets up his rule.
    If he died long ago
    Why do you dread us so?

    There in the tomb drops the faint moonlight,
    But wind comes up from the shore:
    They shake when the winds roar,
    Old bones upon the mountain shake.

    The tower's old cook that must climb and clamber
    Catching small birds in the dew of the morn
    When we hale men lie stretched in slumber
    Swears that he hears the king's great horn.
    But he's a lying hound:
    Stand we on guard oath-bound!

    There in the tomb the dark grows blacker,
    But wind comes up from the shore:
    They shake when the winds roar,
    Old bones upon the mountain shake.

    A sepulchral, desolate scent. Long-dead soldiers, oath-bound; the perfume of their armor, the chill wind that surges through their tower, white bone and blackened steel: white sandalwood, ambergris, wet ozone, galbanum and leather with ebony, teak, burnt grasses, English ivy and a hint of red wine. (Gender neutral)


    In the Bottle: This smells strangely masculine and sweet at the same time. This has the scent of leather mixed with the richness of the red wine and a sweet scent that reminds me of dragons blood

    On wet: This is a light masculine scent to me. It has the depth of incense, touch or leather and a slight sweetness that is a nice touch. As it sits I get the ambergris and I am not sure what in the description is "wet ozone" but I can sense that a bit to the back

    Drydown: This is a sexy, deep, slightly sweet, sense. This is perfect for those of you who adore the incensy blends that Beth can blend so well. This also would work well for guys as well. I can't wait to try it on my new husband!!
