    Virgo Snowball Fight

    Brian: “Our first morning in Salzburg, I wake up to the sound of something thudding against the window. I look outside, and Lilith is out in the snow throwing snowballs at our door. So, I put on all my snow gear – mittens, hat, boots, overcoat, the whole pile of stuff – as fast as I can, and I go outside and I realize this kid is in her just in her long johns and her mom’s snow boots, standing in the snow laughing. Beth comes out yelling for her to put her snow clothes on and to get out of Beth’s boots because she was getting snow in them. She gets changed, and we run around snowball fighting. “There’s another story – an inside joke – that if my feet get cold wherever we are, we have to go home. But I’ll save that for another time.” Lilith: “You can’t tell in the picture, but I’m in my jammies here under my coat and stuff. Me and Unkie had a snowball fight. We tried to build a snowman, but it very much failed. Unkie got me a lot with the snow, but I got him back!” A scent the color of the sun rising over Lake Fuschl: a joyful lemon ginger cologne with a touch of bay leaf and white tea.  This is so bright and refreshing! It really feels like watching my girls pelt each other with snowballs and way to fucking early to be up o'clock in the morning. Bottled youthful energy. It's going to be fabulous to wear in the summer.

    Lilith De Milo

    A lesser-known work of art in vibrant 21st century polychrome: vanilla cream, coconut, fossilized amber, and white sandalwood.  This is absolutely stunning. It reminds me a bit of Obatala, but *fancy*. I wouldn't call this a foodie perfume at all. It's classy and mature.

    Fuck This Heat

    What global warming? Slivers of ice to cool things down, lavender and hops flower to soothe the nerves. Proceeds benefit getting the goddamn AC fixed in the front parlor at BPAL so Teddy and Claire dont sweat to death and we dont roast people alive at Lunacy. Literally everything I never knew I needed in a hot weather perfume. Cold, minty ice, herbal lavender that doesn't go to soap, and a gentle hoppiness. I love it and I'm going to need backups.

    Luke 10:25-37

    On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?” He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’[c]; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.” But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. The next day he took out two denarii[e] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’ “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?” The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.” Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.” Go and do likewise: golden amber and saffron, white sandalwood, and clove. This is gorgeous, warm and spicy, the clove and amber take center stage here. There's something in there that reminds me of Dr. Pepper without it actually smelling like Dr. Pepper, if that makes any sense. It's long lasting and just so wonderful.

    Drag is for Everyone

    I can see why this is meant to be a layering scent. It feels unfinished on its own. It's musky and a bit sharper than I wanted it to be. As with most people, I think some age and some experimentation will be good for this one.

    Blue Unicorn Moon

    I love this! It's the first blueberry bpal that hasn't gone sour on my skin! High five, Lady Lilith!
  7. SadariEvenstar

    Frostbitten Bliss

    Sneezy. Whatever makes me sneeze in Snow White, is present in this too. I'm glad I got to try it, it's pretty, but my allergies can't stand it.

    Blueberry Pumpkin Muffins Hair Gloss

    This is so good. On my skin both pumpkin and blueberry can go wonky on my skin, but not so with it in my hair! Everyone who smelled it yesterday loved it.
  9. SadariEvenstar

    Dead Leaves and Burnt Marshmallows Hair Gloss

    This is Dead Leaves and...... dead leaves to my nose. I don't smell any marshmallow, burnt or not. The leaf note is lovely, but I was really hoping for the burnt marshmallow to shine.

    Canis Major

    Embracing the brightest fire burning in the canopy of night, Canis Major hunts Lepis eternally as he dances with galactic clusters of his sister stars. Star-speckled brown fur and hay. This smells so good. So freaking good. Minty, musky, super wearable. I love it. Oudh? I think that's oudh, and some pine maybe? There's vanilla in there. I can smell it really well on the dry down. Though some of that might be coming from my hair. I don't know there's a lot going on here, but it comes together to perfection.
  11. SadariEvenstar

    Pumpkin Brownies

    Swirled with caramel and topped with sour cream frosting. A pumpkin I can wear! This is so delicious and not a drop of spices to make it smell like a candle. eta: There is a little bit of something that smells a little spicy as it dries down, but it doesn't really smell like cinnamon. Anyway, I decided to take one for the team and slathered it on my inner elbows directly after a bath. No reaction! I get massive painful welts from cinnamon, especially when I'm fresh from the shower, so I don't think this is cinnamon I'm detecting. I have no idea what it is though.
  12. As far as mint, I really love Anesthesia from the Gaiman section, A scent that slips through the cracks: peppermint, lavender, bergamot, and mandrake. It's gentle and minty and really calming.

Your answer can be as simple ("Star Wars" or "Baroque" or "Modern"), or complicated or a combination (e.g. Victorian Gothic) as you feel best fits. Clean? Naturey? Aprons: Do you wear them, do you want one? Utility, decorative, cooking or crafting? That could be fun! BTW, would my witchee be interested in something like this? (photo of black and white striped knitted doll) 9/18/17 It seems like there's a question about socks on the questionnaire, but I don't think it got down to this level: Do you wear them? Any particular style (crew length, knee high, anklet, boot, etc.) or fiber (wool, cotton, bamboo anything but wool, etc.) preference? I like socks! I especially love silly or colorful socks. I tend to wear anklet of crew length. Nothing too rough of uncomfortable. Would you be open to previously-loved books? Always fine. What about partial-full bottles of BPAL or BPTP? Totally fine!

If so, what games are you currently playing and is there any merch for that game you'd love to have?- If you are a gamer do you have a steam/gamestop/amazon wishlist? I am, in theory.

    Buck Moon 2017

    I love this. It reminds me of warm, sweet hay on a summer evening in a way that bpal's actual hay note never seems to capture for me.
