    The Cat

    I got an apparently well-aged imp in a swap with a lovely forumite. After trying Inez and now The Cat, I’ve learned cedar is a really good note for me and I need more of it! The Cat is very snuggly, warm and sweet. The creamy woody sweetness is similar to that in Inez, but has much more staying power, maybe due to age. Also honey in a scent is always the biggest plus there is in my book. Honeyed, fuzzy, woody and warm. I’ll have to consider a bottle, it’s just wonderful!

    Wow this is one elegant lady! Sultry warm, spicy, carnation loveliness in the same vein as Morocco but definitely has her own style. The vanilla, musk, and cedar make the difference.

    I got a bottle of this in a swap with the lovely Cinnabar. This one is soooo calming. If you remember the before times in the long, long ago, LUSH used to have a wonderfully relaxing bubble bar called Temple of Truth that I always thought smelled like sandalwood incense and laundry drying on a line in the fresh air. Claircognizance is a dead ringer for it! It just calms your mind, it will be great for relaxing and bedtime. Love it!

    I owe Alice a sincere apology! I had a bottle years ago when I was a BPAL rookie unaware of the magic of “settling” and aging. I tried her fresh out of the mailbox, thought she smelled like bug spray, and immediately swapped her away. The shame of it! I almost missed the delicious gently spiced, milky floral bliss so reminiscent of LUSH’s beloved Potion scent. Carnation/Rose loveliness! The bug spray went away with settling, and I’m betting it will age right out. Love ya, Alice! Please forgive me?

    Two Frames

    TKO and Love's Philosophy had a baby and gave it a buttercream smash cake and I’m here for it! Everyone in the house plus the dog loves this one. Seriously, my BPAL-loving pup barked at me to give it to him. ETA: I am so smitten with this scent I’m considering my first ever backup bottle! It’s that good! 😍

    Ah Skadi, my beautiful Christmas favorite. Lovely, chilly winter pine forest sweetened with a touch of berry. One of my top BPALs, wintertime perfection! 🥰

    Blood Kiss

    Oh my, how did this one fly under my radar all these years? It’s delicious syrupy honey vanilla sweetness tempered with spiced, darkened fruit and a slight alcoholic kick. It’s a very smooth and red scent, with both brightness and a deep dark heart, like a cabochon garnet. Blood Kiss reminds me of a sweeter Voluptuous Wantonness, and I prefer BK. I will be needing a bottle!

    What's the best coconut blend?

    Oh yes, Death Adder is gorgeous smoky dark coconut!
  9. LadyLuckless


    impable: High Strung Daisies is a sugary spicy carnation, Chimera is like Cinnabon in a bottle I looove it in the fall Persephone is juicy pomegranate and rose Bliss is pure milk chocolate Bon Vivant is realistic champagne with sweet strawberry Jezebel is a super sweet honey/rose/orange blossom I also second Titania and Dragons Milk! Not impable: Hope and Faith from the Carnival Diabolique are sugared rose and violet respectively, but not impable, and only sold together, TKO is also not impable, but is a super popular marshmallow lavender, Melisandre the Puppet Mistress is my favourite jasmine of all time, very purple-sweet. I also love Eostre of the Dawn, it’s so sweet and creamy.

    Beeswax, Lavender & Acacia Honey

    Honey is probably my best and favourite note and honey blends are normally a sure bet, so I was surprised when this went so sideways on me. It takes on the same high pitched, burning, on the razor’s edge of pee tone that make caramel and brown sugar not work for me. Maybe it’s the beeswax?
  11. Someone probably said it already but High-Strung Daisies = Lush Potion/Ruby Slippers/etc. 🥰

    High-Strung Daisies

    Oh my god, it’s Lush Potion lotion, but better! I was scared to try this because of the bubblegum comments I’d read, but I only get any bubblegum if I really focus on it and squint my nose lol, and it’s only in the wet stages. It’s warm, sweet, creamy, spicy carnation goodness! Very happy, pink and comforting! In these times anything that makes me feel calm and happy quickly is an instant necessity. Bottle, STAT!

    A Vision of the Courtesan

    Mmmm sweet, creamy, just a touch of spice and smoke. Like drinking a delicious warm, creamy beverage while burning incense. So calming and pretty, I love it!

    Wild Rose & Cherry

    Ah, lovely! Real, natural cherries and real, natural pinky-red roses, both fresh and wild and alive. The cherry/rose combo makes me think of Persephone’s pomegranate/rose combo, but brighter. A bright red ruby as opposed to Persephone’s wine-red garnet. It’s simple, beautiful, natural and cheering. Great staying power too!

    The Sea Foams Milk

    Can’t speak to how it smells on me, but from the half imp my mom spilled on herself and my nosy labradoodle pup it’s a very nice, calming sea breeze scent with a creaminess to it. It reminds me a bit of some of the milky scents Lush comes out with. I especially like it on my puppy! 😁
