    I love tattoos, have seven (my lucky number of course) but am getting more. I guess they'll come in multiples of seven??

    I'm a history buff, especially of NYC. Currently reading a book on Five Points. I love baseball too. I know it's not really a girl thing, but I can't help myself :) It's the only sport (besides watching the X Games) that I like. I even have over 4,000 baseball cards! *nerd alert*

    Photography is a hobby too. If I could do it full time I would.

    I play guitar in a band, again mostly for fun. Of course I'd be happy if we got a deal but I'm not banking on it. At least it keeps me from completely becoming a boring accountant :(

    My kitties! They make me feel warm and fuzzy. They definitely kept me company through some rough times.

    Snow Angel Atmosphere Spray

    Love this! I definitely get the sugar, lemon, and floral tea notes in this. It almost reminds me of a candy necklace. It seems like the sugar stands out above all for me. It's a very youthful and cheerful scent to me. I think I may need a back up bottle for the spring/summer Yummy!!

    House of Unquenchable Fire Atmosphere Spray

    HOUSE OF UNQUENCHABLE FIRE O garment not golden but gilded, O garden where all men may dwell, O tower not of ivory, but builded By hands that reach heaven from hell; O mystical rose of the mire, O house not of gold but of gain, O house of unquenchable fire, Our Lady of Pain! Glittering amber, frankincense, neroli, vanilla silk, and champaca. WOWEEEE! This stuff is GORGEOUS! MINE MINE MINE. ALL MINE. Ok, I will share....Nothing in here screams *smell me and only me*, just blended so well. Not sure how they did it but the amber certainly feels like it is glittering! Frankincense/amber/champaca is what I get out of the bottle, but it's all very soft. Then it all sweetens up a bit from the vanilla/neroli. The scent certainly lingers but not in an obnoxious way. Comforting and happy to me, like a soft fuzzy sweater on that first NYC spring day when the temp finally gets above 55! Another bottle (or two) is in my future. Puddin' and the labbies, you guys are amazing!

    Sic Erit

    Oh my I am so glad I ordered two bottles of this as It should age superbly! I get Geranium right off the top, mixed with a bit Red musk. The geranium seems to fade on me pretty quickly with the musk coming through more. On drydown I am left with that wonderful patch, blended with the amber/benzoin/musk. I love it!! Well done Beth, truly beautiful Just need to add that this is the scent I was hoping for when I first discovered BPAL back in 2005. So in love.

    Amber & Patchouli Hair Gloss

    This is just gorgeous!! The patchouli is not smacking you upside the head at all, but it's there and is smooth. Amber is definitely more prominent. I am absolutely in love <3 I have gotten quite a few compliments already!!

    Before this I only had the original Smut, which I did swap away. I love musk, but there was something disturbing to me about it. I figured I would give it another try this year and it is different. This one ROCKS! I get a slight cherry with sugared musk and it is swoon-worthy So much love

    Is There a Lavender Dominant Atmosphere Spray?

    Erebos is mostly Lavender to me as well. I hope you enjoy it!

    Aphrodite Eyrkine Atmosphere Spray

    Blood orange, ylang ylang, red musk, jasmine, and mimosa. This stuff is da bomb! I have been using this since I got it last Thursday and I can safely say this bottle will be gone soon, so I need to order more asap! Initially I get the orange with the jasmine/ylang combo giving it a slightly heady floral feel. The red musk is lurking in the background at first. On drydown (on my sheets and blankets), the red musk is the star! Slightly dirty but warm and glorious. I literally grin ear to ear when smelling this! This combo is just fantastic. Very sexy! (a perfume version of this would be great! *hint hint*) =)

    L’Essence de L’Engouement

    I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised by this one. Sometimes sugar and strawberry notes can smell strange on me. That didn't happen with this! It is really well balanced. I get an initial blast of strawberry, not too loud though. The vanilla is subtle as well, but gives it a creamy backdrop. The sugar is more apparent on the drydown. It is definitely a scent for when you're feeling girly!

    Femme Fatale Scents

    I think Whip and Liz are both amazing! Both have leather, but are quite different. Whip is a gorgeous light rose with leather that smells slightly airy to me. Clean leather. Liz is mostly vanilla, leather and a touch of smoke. Warmer than Whip. I think either could represent the femme fatale. To be fair, i haven't tried many of the others on the list.

    The Phoenix At Midday

    Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, – The finger-points look through like rosy blooms: Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms ‘Neath billowing skies that scatter and amass. All round our nest, far as the eye can pass, Are golden kingcup-fields with silver edge Where the cow-parsley skirts the hawthorn-hedge. ‘Tis visible silence, still as the hour-glass. Deep in the sun-searched growths the dragon-fly Hangs like a blue thread loosened from the sky: – So this wing’d hour is dropt to us from above. Oh! clasp we to our hearts, for deathless dower, This close-companioned inarticulate hour When twofold silence was the song of love. The blazing fires of nona hora: blood orange, mimosa, gingergrass, golden amber, saffron, tonka absolute, pomegranate, neroli, and bourbon geranium. This Phoenix embodies vitality, ferocity, determination, passion, and strength of will. I received my most recent BPAL haul at work yesterday. Due to a work outing, I left the box here and came in unscented this morning. I figured I would try Phoenix at Midday, even though it was 10 am here. I am loving it so far! I definitely get the comfort of the amber/blood orange mix right away. Initially it was a bit candyish to me, with something sharp (saffron?). As it dried it mellowed out. Then I got hints of Tonka, pom and geranium blending with the amber and Orange. This is definitely a golden, springlike Midday! Fitting, considering it is a balmy 51 degrees here in NYC!

    The Shadowy And The Sublime

    This scent is absolutely gorgeous! Just so soft and warm. I don't get much rose, but definitely an underlying sweetness which could be the combo of amber, rose and wisteria. The myrrh is very subtle but brings an earthy quality to it without screaming at you. Just beautiful and a multiple bottle purchase for sure!

    Semiramis Bath Oil

    Red musk, pomegranate, red cherry, myrrh, and blood orange. OMG! I am in love! Cherry is usually amped on me, but here it is more subtle. I get more Myrrh and Red musk on the drydown, barely sweetened by the fruits. It is fantastic!! And it layers well with the perfume oil. I literally walked around after my shower thinking I could die happy smelling like this I must go hoard now....

    Pirate Moon

    I haven't worn this one in awhile. I did remember that I loved how it smelled on my skin as opposed to out of the bottle, and I was right I'm not usually a fan of aquatics, hence why I wasn't as fond of this sniffing from the bottle. I am a huge fan of red musk, but I don't get that from this. Musk yes, but it must be so well blended that it doesn't scream at me. Maybe the lime is what is giving me the "aquatic" smell. This is so delicious! Very unisex to me. Sweet and sultry. I love it Great waft too!

    Villainess and BPAL

  15. I have a friend who had used one of Aveda's conditioners and I could have sworn she was wearing Spellbound. It is one of my faves and definitely has an underlying "herbal" smell. It's rose, amber and I think red musk. Not too rosy, but sweet and the musk gives it a sharp edge.
