Rose scents usually go sharp and loud on my skin, but this one is a good tame rose. The incense and tobacco are equal players to the rose and gives the scent a dusty feel. It does smell like incense and it does smell like rose. The two sit side by side instead of being blended. Underneath it all I can smell wood acting as a nice base for the incense and the rose.

The first things I smell from the bottle are sugar and cardamom, and reminds me of a lighter spiced Pfancy Pfefferneusse. The cardamom is not loud or harsh, and the sugar I agree has a powdered sugar feel. Gypsy threatened to go plastic on me, but then vanilla, musk, and tonka came out later in the drydown and brought balance and body to the scent. While there is a cookie, gourmand feel in the beginning (my Pfefferneusse association), it never really crosses into that territory.

Just as awesome as Sara Pezzini, Witchblade smells like dusty metal and red musk. Itís very evocative of its namesake and I can imagine this to be the scent of an ancient living weapon. I love the two scents by themselves, but layered together I get an awesome third scent. This is the most fun Iíve had with any of BPALís series.

This is awesome. It smells of sweetened skin musk with a hint of leather. For me this is the best kind of leather; smooth and clean and playing nice with the other notes instead of screaming loud. It also has great throw without being super strong and overpowering at the same time. After a minute of putting it on my skin, the scent just blossoms, but my skin chemistry also really likes skin musk. This is one of the few perfumes where Iíd say itís instant love for me.

I'm learning honey and honey-like notes can be hit or miss on me, but the honey musk in Lady Una plays very nice on my skin and the same goes for Comforting Plush Companion. The honey musk and vanilla is fuzzy and warm, and the rose and plum is soft and sweet. I don't get a sense of baked goods, but it is a sugary scent yet not candy-like. It also has a nice throw and long lasting.
