  1. Dorian has been suspended from swapping effective immediately.

  2. Hi! Were you still interested in La Fee Verte? Sorry I just now saw your comment, I had taken a break from bpal for a bit! :)

      Responded to you in our PMs! My second message got merged with my previous message so I'm not sure if you'll get a notification that I wrote you regarding all the ones I wanted! I figure you need time to check what you have left but just in case you didn't see the message :D Thanks!

    The British Blondes Atmosphere Spray

    I got a bottle in and unfortunately, for me, it's all orchids. I don't get even a hint of the vanilla, musk , or amber. After I sprayed it, someone told me it was a mix of old lady perfume + potpourri. Off to the swaps.

    The Malignant Dreams of Cthulhu in Love

    When I first got this bottle, I kind of went "meh" and set it aside. That was about a year ago, and I completely forgot I had it. I pulled it out today and just ... Aging has made a huge difference. Now when I put it on my skin, it blossoms into the patchouli from Banshee Beat and the cocoa note from Boomslang - a chocolate-y BB, if you will. Fantastic.

    Creating BPAL Gift Packs with a Theme

    Ahaha, this is genius. I just went through my imps and made myself one of these packs. My boyfriend already likes bpal and spn, this would make a great gift I think I'd also add Good and Evil from the rpg line. ETA: And Lilth or Eve, if you do season themed packs.
  6. Thanks! I'll be sure to check those out. This is my first foray into leather notes so I'll be keeping fingers crossed.
  7. I was recently given a sample of Boothill in my BPTP order and gaahhhr. It's probably my favorite scent to ever come from the lab, so if anyone who has smelled it or knows the notes that can help me, it would be more than appreciated. To me, it's almost an aquatic scent. Literally. It has that men's cologne bit going on with what smells like a humidifier. Just smelling it makes my mouth literally start to feel parched - it's like the essence of water. I'm looking for - anything - the lab produces that comes close to it. Thanks so much!

    That's the best way to describe this scent. It starts out minty with the teeniest hint of vanilla in the bottle, but upon application, it blossoms! It turns into this sugary candy mint, and it smells ammmmazing. The next morning, I still had some left on - which is a miracle because most perfumes fail to last past the two hour mark. It's lost the minty quality and turned into just a warm sugary, vanilla. I love it. <3

    Dorian Soap (by Silk Road Trading Company)

    Got my soap a days ago and just got around to trying it! I opened the package and it was very beautifully wrapped, with a black and white picture of a decadent room. The bar itself is sort of a light tan colour. Upon first opening it, I didn't smell much of Dorian at all but I figured a bit of water and lather would remedy this! Unfortunately, the scent didn't get any stronger. It's a nice bar of soap, moisturizing for me and doesn't lose much when wet. I'd definitely buy other bptp soaps, but this one just didn't have scent to compel me to buy it again!

    This has joined my big bottle list. In the bottle: Rooose. I can practically see the little buds hiding in there. Wet: There is no rose, at all. It's just honeysuckle. It's very golden and warm and comforting. Drydown: Honeysuckle with cinnamon and some other floral-y note I can't place. It's a skin scent you have to lean in to smell. It's lovely. This scent always makes me happy when I slather in it. Definitely a 4 out of 4.

    There is one type of perfume I've never been horribly fond of and that's florals. This is straight. up. rose. I got a teeny hint of cinnamon, enough to give it this sexual kick. It's a deep red rose. It smells like something that might line a Heidi Fleiss operation. That said, it's sexy, it's gorgeous. It's one of the few florals I actually enjoy. It hardly changed from the bottle, to being wet, to the dry down. The only difference was a small increase in the amount of cinnamon. I completely recommend this scent. It took a while to grow on me but now I'm flying through my imp.

    Cake, cookies, donuts, baked goods, even Cinnabon

    Thank you! There is exactly one bottle of Tokyo Stomp on ebay, and I'm determined to buy it. All the non-bpal scents now strike me as incredibly fake smelling, so I get plastic and nasty notes out of all my regular ones now! I never thought I could be converted from my Burberry but Beth as done just that.

    Cake, cookies, donuts, baked goods, even Cinnabon

    Well, I am soon about to place my first order, which includes a bottle of Dorian, and imps of every kind that involve food of some sort! I was curious, is there any scent that smells like thin mints? Like just mint and chocolate? Every smell I've found that could potentially be so has florals, and florals tend to skip straight to the rotting stage on me. Have you tried any scents that bring this particular sweetie to mind?

    I'm sure you can guess whether the bulk of my review will be praise or not by my username, but wow. This scent knocked me flat. In the Bottle/Wet: A musky, lemony, teacake scent. It smelled good, but I was worried Dorian would not be all I wanted it to be. 5 Min: o.O How did it turn into this?? It's like a baker's shop, assuming said shop was evil and filled with eternal youth. It's all tea and teacakes and icing and musk. A faint hint of lemon, just enough to turn the scent sharp. It's well-blended. My god, this is exactly what I hoped for! I'm going to bathe in this stuff. 20 min: It's gone! My skin has struck again. I am a black hole for scents, they rarely last more than 10 minutes, and unfortunately this one is the same. This is my new signature scent, I wear it everyday in a scent locket, so I can atleast hope to smell it throughout the day. I recommend this scent if you're a foodie or your sniffer just isn't broken!
