    Oh...my. This is incredibly sexy. Wisp of smoke, sweet honey, creamy and soft olive oil and beeswax. The scent makes me feel wonderful in a noir femme fatale kind of way. I'm in my crummy clean the house clothes and I feel like a man-eater! Good job, Lab!

    Oh, this is wonderful. First applied it's orange and for me a bit off-putting, but that only lasts a minute or two. After that it's lovely warm and sexy as hell. The carnation brightens it just enough, and it's a very close to the skin scent.

    EPIC BPAL Spreadsheet Thread

    Thank you hackess!!!!
  4. Thanks guys! I sent an email to the answers addy.
  5. Does anyone know if all the Dragon Moon orders have gone out? I ordered it and an imp pack with some of the Steamworks scents on 4/19 and I'm getting a bit concerned since I see Dyan Moon orders going out in the C&S thread.

    Wet it's almost all juniper. On drying…aha! There's the patchouli! Yummy! The forest from hell is still there, but as more backround. This almost tickles the back of my palate when I sniff it. I seem to amp forest scents, though, as it gets more pine like as it dries further, throw is like whoa, and I get no lovely dirt. No flowers. The patchouli has been eaten, and I am left alone in the forest from hell.

    This is a lot lighter than I expected. There is a "perfumy" quality which I suppose is the tuberose and geranium. For some reason I always associate geranium with commercial perfumes, so ymmv. There is an overlay of sweetness from the honey. I get more musk as it dries, but not enough for me. Unfortunately, my experience seems far removed from others in this thread. I want the sexy! It's pretty,but I don't think I would wear this often enough to get a bottle. This would be a good one for someone looking for a midway point between heavy resin scents (Cathedral, say) and floral wonderlands.

    Cassia and pomegranate! On me this is wonderful...the dragon's blood is in full force when wet, but then it goes juicy and yet dry at the same time with fruit and spice. It starts out very strong but mellows quickly into a rather close to the skin scent. I love this.

    Wet this is sweet almond like whoa. As it dries the spices come out...I can't pick out individual notes, just a general nice spice with a bit of honey. On me the almond fades to pretty much light backround in a few minutes.

    Oh but I love love love this! Wonderful resins, a bit of smoke and wood and slightly dusty on dry down. This is beautiful on me.

    Ginger! Wonderful sweet ginger…reminds me of a candy called Ginger Chews. Very calming and comforting, since I identify ginger as something that makes me feel better. The milk is very in the backround on me. Just lovely. *note-this imp was at least a year old. I remember trying it when fresh and thinking "plastic!"

    So sweet! And yet, almost smoky. Really love this one! It isn't foody in the slightest, thanks to the wood. Kill-Devil made me happy - effectively killed the devils of my day! It's on the bottle wishlist for sure!

    This was wonderful....for a few seconds. On first application,it's all cinnamon...screaming cinnamon. Then the cinnamon settles down,and the skin musk and honey sweeten things up, and it's gone. I really loved it, but it fades very fast on me,and has no throw at all. From the description, this should have been perfect for me. I'll have to try it again at a later date.

    Lovely! Definitely captures the woods at night. It isn't an "earthy" scent, as in I don't get much dirt, but there is a deepness to it that I really like. The fir wood stands out on top, but unless I put my nose right up to it I don't smell like a christmas tree.

    A scent aflame with rage, swirling in the red haze of hatred: dragon's blood spiked with black pepper, clove, and cinnamon. I really thought I would like this, but something turns on my skin. Becomes very unpleasant, though all the notes are among my favorites. I'm truly perplexed! A sniff from the bottle gets me DB and cinnamon, but once I apply...almost instantaneously, it goes horribly wrong.
