  1. The most foresty scent I've ever smelled (from any perfume company) is Troll, which happens to be one of my favorites. Check it out.

    Rational scents?

    Perhaps Lawful from the RPG section. It truly somehow smells...Lawful.

    Looking for a BPAL that Resembles a Favorite Perfume

    Sin is one of my top 10, and I agree..it just lacks the coconut and Egyptian musk (suppose I could acquire single notes of those and try my hand, eh?)

    Honey and Beeswax scents

    You're in luck, because the general catalog section Rappacini's Garden has a literal sub-section dedicated to honey. My suggestion: Tobacco Honey. Dries down to dark, sexy honey. Snow scent: Snowball Fracas. Snow + earth.

    Looking for a BPAL that Resembles a Favorite Perfume

    As I recall, sadly it didn't work for me. No one else has smelled this awesome scent?

    Looking for a BPAL that Resembles a Favorite Perfume

    LIsted notes: patchouli, spice (to my nose, Cinnamon,) Egyptian musk, Tahitian vanilla, coconut. It smells like a dark-yet-sweet, spicy cinnamon. Thoughts?

    I do love cedar...

    Seconding Aureus.
  8. Thank you, Wwindy and clareN. Will put 'em on the 'to try' list! Any other thoughts, Clovens?
  9. Another vote for Jack. Terribly strong and far-reaching.

    what is ruining these scents for me?

    Personally, I wouldn't deliberately track down stuff I thought I wouldn't like. Try the stuff you want, and eventually the notes you suspect *will* show up in some other perfume.
  11. I take this to mean...no one knows? Ah, the secret of the spider is kept well. *nods*
  12. On the hunt for a substitute for the divine an' discontinued Smiling Spider, the main note to my nose is 'bitter clove.' I notice a fair amount of blends with clove, but very few are phrased, "bitter clove." Ones with that phrase tend to be 'darker' - Smiling Spider, Death of Autumn, Dracul and Count Dracula have it, for instance. So is "bitter clove" just a descriptive, like "sweet honey?" Or are 'clove' and 'bitter clove' two different scents?

    Tried Carnival Wax? BPAL suggestions needed!

    My votes: Dorian and O. I notice no fern in Dorian and don't recall any reviews saying it is heavy on it. It's white musk, vanilla and tea (in that order on me.) It seems to be one of BPAL's most popular scents, an almost universally loved fragrance you can hardly go wrong with. O is honey, amber, and vanilla (in that order on me) and smells a lot better aged. SSS I don't think I've tried, but I don't like root beer so there's no way that would be a personal scent of mine. Black Pearl is 'eh' on me.
  14. The sweetest BPAL I've tried is Sugar Cookie (a Yule Limited Edition,) which is such a true, rich scent that I've actually heard people say they smelled cookies in a store I was in. Not my kind of scent, but it sounds like what you're looking for.

    Honey and Beeswax scents

    Seconding this: Rappaccini's Garden now has a section at the very bottom called Rappaccini's Apiary, with 11 different types of honey. Hemlock Honey is almost a top 10 for me. Gorgeous. Oleander Honey is a step down from that but still 'pretty good.' Yellow Jessamine Honey is too sweet/florally, and gets a resounding 'eh.' The incomparably lovely ScaryDoll is sending me Horse Chestnut Honey as we shriek, will try to remember to report back. Edit: a little too much chestnut for yours truly, especially when first on. The Lights of Men's Lives is a lovely, warm, subtle sweetness. O is, to my mind, overrated, but does better with aging. (*ducks*)
