    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?
  3. 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! 😁

    Crow Moon 2020

    Crow Moon 2007 was my first bottle of bpal, which I swapped away because as a 20-something newbie I thought while beautiful, it was too sophisticated for me to ever actually wear. I was delighted when it came back as the new lunacy, I’ve been kicking myself lately wishing I still had it since I suspected I would feel differently now, and I certainly do! Gorgeous, deep, dark evergreen woods with dusky violets and wildflowers peeking out through that chilled minty slush. I can’t speak to how the slight note variations make it differ from previous versions, the scent brought me back to that time like a scent memory does, though I think it may be a bit softer and sweeter. If Skadi was a forest in the dead of winter, and Elf was the same one in summer, Crow Moon is that forest just as winter turns to spring. Magical!

    Voluptuous Wantonness

    A luscious red musk blend distantly related to Scherezade, Mme. Moriarty, and Snake Charmer. Very close to Witch Dance, but fruitier and without the smoke. Super sexy!

    Very nice, sweet and green, but not grassy. My search for grass continues.

    Dragon's Milk

    Oh my god this is goooood! Starts out with a creamy, coconut-floral then slowly melts into a luscious golden honeyed vanilla cream. It’s heavenly and an instant favourite! I luuuuurve! 🥰

    My Tiger

    Oh beautiful! All notes are present and accounted for, but the patch is very soft and grounding to the sweetness of the sugary lavender and lovely golden amber. A very warm, comforting scent that just glows. I love it!

    Peach, Peach Blossom, Apricot, Nectarines

    You know, that’s a really good idea! Lots of grounding notes in Peach Chypre and I notice there’s no musk in it, which I think was contributing to the “generic perfume” effect. I’ll give that a try, thanks! 😊

    Peach, Peach Blossom, Apricot, Nectarines

    I’ve had no luck with peach blends actually smelling like peach. It always ends up smelling like a department store perfume counter on me. I’m eyeing Peach Chypre and Impeachment but I’m wondering if the same thing will happen. Does anyone know any real, fresh peachy peach scents? Maybe I should try apricot instead? ETA: This has happened with Fae, Cat Chasing Butterflies, and Alleviate the Frenzy.

    The Sun's Treasure

    Golden, vivacious, honey sweet, a little sexy. It smells expensive, it smells RICH. I adore it, and I wear it when I want to feel more confident and put together.
