    You might have some luck with Detestable Putrescence. It's quite rich and smells a bit like vanilla extract which, to my nose, translates as buttery. Definitely try and look for some more scents with the Lab's bourbon vanilla note too, especially if you enjoy it. It's one of the creamier vanilla types (and is actually completely unrelated to bourbon whiskey!) and I think it holds quite a buttery undertone.

    There's Boo as well- as a previous user said, it might be more butterscotch than butter-butter but it's relatively easy to find and probably worth a shot sniff.


    Thank you! I did a search for Detestable Putrescence and found a bottle for sale. I'm just waiting for the owner to contact me back. Hopefully, I'll have a bottle soon. :D


    Awesome! I do hope you like it :) I'm on the hunt for the perfect vanilla myself so I can definitely empathise. Let us know if you have any luck!

    Iím looking for a Buttered Vanilla scent. Iíve done a search and Iíve read through all the vanilla reviews. All of the recís also list one of the notes that donít work on me. So nothing with cinnamon, mint, anise or liquor.

    Although, I do like the labs bourbon vanilla. I think that's because I donít really smell the bourbon at all in it. I love Dorian and Iím looking for that vanilla but with butter instead of the musk. I actually don't mind a little musk, I just really want lot's of butter and vanilla.

  3. In Topic: Looking for a BPAL that resembles a favorite perfume?

    23 July 2011 - 08:29 AM

    Could anyone help me find a (specifically GC) BPAL similar to Posset's The Scent of Angels? I know that comparisons have been drawn between Antique Lace/Snow White, but am looking for something a little less coveted & more permanent that I can include in an imp pack.

    Any help would be very much appreciated!

    ETA (not very telling) scent description:
    The lingering odor of sanctity, The Scent of Angels is truly a magnificent and heartbreakingly beautiful perfume. This is what you would imagine you could smell after angels had disappeared. Is it vanilla, is it floral, is it musk? Is it all of those things or is the combination more than the sum of its parts? In any case you will say it is stunning and leave it at that. Imagine one small down feather floating downward after an angel has flitted through your life.

    Characteristics are mainly vanilla, musk, floral.

    This is so fucking sexy.

    ETA: I wouldn't wear this on myself. On a man, however...
  5. In Topic: Celeste

    In the bottle Celeste smells very heavy and cloying. It reminds me some kind of Emirati perfume (random??) although I'm guessing it's the saffron that's lending it the Arabic/incense-y feel. My flatmate and I both had to scrub it off as it was stinking up the room.

    It mellows into quite a pleasant vanilla but the dry-down is faint and I don't know if it's worth the initial stage. Will keep and see.
