    I swear this bottle of oil is magical. Each time I open it and try it it smells of something different. Toffee apples, popcorn, all the fun of the fair. It seems to start out buttery, then morph into a cacophony of goodness. This is definitely a keeper

    Wow, I just have to say that this has gone straight in at number 1 in my all time fave BPAL scents- it is gorgeous. In the bottle -Fig, fig and more fig Wet -Fig with a slight tartness to it stunningly beautiful On the Drydown - Fig with a touch of honey drizzled over it. When I say fig I mean juicy ripe fresh fig as opposed to fig roll biccies. Dry- The perfect fig and Honey combination. This lasts really well but after a few hours I get a deep mellow honey with hardly any fig. I love this at every single stage.Fabulous

    In the bottle Watermelon, I'm not usually very good at picking out notes. However this is like sticking your head into a watermelon- I kid you not!! On the skin Wet- Still watermelon, which makes me very happy. Often scents are lovely in the bottle and then change once they hit me! On the drydown Yes still regaining it's watermelon juicyness, but there is something else there aswell now. No idea what it is, kind of a light breezy floral. Dry- I still get a bit of Watermelon which I am ecstatic about. This is a perfect scent for a very hot day like today. Gorgeous in it's simplicity, I just wonder how I'm going to replace the bottle when it is all gone...... The only downside to this is that it fades quite quickly, but is wonderfully refreshing. 9/10 from me

    Beltane 2005-06

    In the bottle: very green floral Wet- green floral with a depth, I can't distinguish the different floral scents but this is a lovely blend. Dry- the greenness has gone *phew* it no longer smells of hothouse flowers. It has dried down to a really heavy floral which is gorgeous. I def smell Jasmine in there quite prominently. Perfect, I really like heavy heady scents and this fits the bill perfectly

    Dia de los Muertos

    In the bottle- Soft sensual floral Wet- Floral, with a spicy undertone, yet sweet and smoky at the same time. Dry- I get a slight citrus kick (Heaven only knows why!) the floral is now heady but still soft at the same time. I love heady florals so this could be a winner. I can detect smoke, but not a cloying smoke like some of the other blends. More like someone down the street had a fire an hour ago. Yes I am liking this a lot. Perfection

    Santo Domingo

    I bought this due to my love of the Dominican Republic. *sigh* In the bottle- Citrus and heady floral. Wet- Floral with a little kick of rum. Very soft scent overall. Dry-I think I can smell the rum, and a wee bit of tobacco flower. A very gentle scent. This overall is a bit too faint a scent for me, I like it in your face strong. Don't get me wrong it is a lovely scent, just doesn't bring the Dominican to me.

    In the bottle - lavender Wet- Lavender with maybe rosemary and some other herbs. Not overly keen on the scent. But this works a treat, our neighbours decided to have a very loud party and I still went to sleep almost straight away (most unlike me). I slept for 11 hours I couldn't believe it: this is a godsend. Beth you are a genius!

    Pink Moon 2005

    The name of this moon refers to the color of wild ground phlox, a primary component of this Lunacy Blend, which is one of the most widespread floral signposts of springtime in North America. This Lunar blend is soft with phlox, tulip, daffodil, dogwood and muscari, dusted with pink sugar, carnation and honey, and a touch of the first strawberries of the season. In the bottle- Way too sweet, I am considering not even testing this. Wet- The strawberry is not so obvious now, the sweetness is met by a slight tart note. Which makes for a good balance. On the drydown, I smell butter, or something creamy, with a strawberry note in the background. Glad I tried this Dry- a soft happy floral with a strawberry in the background. Very nice!

    Queen Mab

    In the bottle jasmine and grapefruit or something equally sharp. Wet- a soft rose, and maybe jasmine. Still something quite sharp in there too. Dry- This is very similar to Fever/ Hollywood BBar by Lush. It must be the rose and jasmine combination. A really nice heady floral for grown ups. I still smell something sharp in the background. I would swear this had grapefuit in, but it isn't in the description. Definately going for a 5ml of this. It's fabulous!

    Mata Hari

    Wet- stale rose and coffee. Some of Beths Rose scents do this on me, but we'll hang on in there. On the drydown-Morphing into something a bity spicey, with a soft floral edge. This is going well. Dry- smokey, with a sexy floral scent peeping through. This is a seductive scent, I will have to invest in a 5ml for those days when I want to feel confident, and empowered, without losing my femininity.

    Searching for the Perfect Vanilla?

    Most definitely Snake Oil

    I received this as a frimp. I nearly put it straight into the swaps pile but decided to have a sniff, and wow. Wet: Sweet butterscotch is right! This smells creamy, and made my mouth water. I was expecting something akin to Whiskey. On the drydown: I do detect something a little boozy that makes my head pleasantly swim. I almost detect a twig of mint, but I am probably imagining that! This smells like a perfect creamy cocktail, on a beach at sunset. I never thought I would say this but i am going to be getting a 5ml of this sweet grog!

    In the bottle-wowser I think I am in love- almondy goodness. Wet- turned to a bad rose, and the almond is all gone. Many BPAL rose scents don't suit me! After a few hours -still getting the unpleasant rose note, I can't detect any sandalwood at all. Not a keeper unfortunately!

    My curiosity was aroused by Jack as I have never smelled a Pumpkin! However I ordered an imp to try and wowser this is scrummy. In the bottle it smells find of foody and spicy. Drying down I can really pick up the peach and clove which I really like. This is very foody but not in an overpowering way. I just ordered a 5ml

    Antique Lace

    I adore Antique Lace. It is a very creamy vanilla that has tremendous staying power. When this fades (approx 14 hours later) I can smell the clean linen and soft flowery scent. This is such a complex scent while still being soft and gentle on the nose:this is the first scent where I can pick out each note. This so perfectly encapsulates the name- it is perfect...and I am sad that it has been discontinued.
