    Sudha Segara

    this one smelled weird from the imp, wet it smells very similar to verbana. then it dries to something very pleasant which i assume to be a combination of milk and ginger. verbana is still there, but in the background. i do agree that it's very light, and tends to fade very quickly. i would probably go through my imp very quickly! if only it was stronger and lasted longer!

    My nose must be getting more used to smelling BPAL scents, however I still am unable to detect the rum, leather and gunpowder notes. How exactly does sarsaparilla smell like? Must sniff more and *buy more* Very Aquatic, and also comforting blend. First thought was melon, both in imp and on wet. There is something flowery about this on skin, reminds me of some flower I cannot put to name.... It can be described as salt air, yet not so close to it. Do I sound confusing? Warm, but not too warm, and the scent is not too strong. Makes me feel a bit like slathering it on Something in this makes me associated Mary Read with masculinity, but I do not exactly find it an overly masculine scent. A wonderful, wearable scent and my current favourite!

    Looking for a BPAL that Resembles a Favorite Perfume

    Thank you so much Ahania! I will try both of them once I managed to get my hands on them

    This doesn't work for me. I'm not very good at describing the notes wet, I would say it was a mixture of the listed scents. However when dry, I get a smoky incensy scent, unlike that of Athens, this is a bright smoky scent.

    Looking for a BPAL that Resembles a Favorite Perfume

    I have recently fell for L'Occitane Cherry Blossom EDT. Listed notes from their site: • Top notes: Cherry, Freesia, Blackcurrant • Heart notes: Cherry blossom, Lily of the valley • Base notes: Rosewood, Amber, Musk This is their new-er scents so this may be a bit difficult. I usually really dislike the smell of Cherries, especially for those which smell like cough medicine, but Cherry Blossom seems to be the only odd one out. Aside to that I am also partial to The Body Shop Spa Wisdom Africa Spa range. Is anyone is able to recommend something similar I can try out for these 2 (Other than Kyoto because I am so going to try that!)? Oh and I absolutely have to agree with Shanghai and L'Occitane lemon Verbena range!

    This is my second time applying Paris, the first with me not knowing what was it supposed to smell like, but now since I have gotten a better idea.. First whiff, whoa, lavender! Upon applying: Lavender fades in a zip. Where is the spice, more specifically, where did that wonderful lavender go? All that is left is what I assume to be lotus.. And that's it. Slightly floral. Wear: Not noticable, as I forgotten I had it on once I was out of my place. I would say this is too lotus-y for my taste, but it does deserve another try, just to observe how the scent develops after half an hour to an hour.

    *Edit* On second try, Athens smells completely different from the first. Wine was extremely distinct from the imp, to application, dry-down and all the way until I washed it off. Like the previous review, the scent is still very smoky with quite a strong throw. Honey, sweet flowers, I could detect them, just that they were really covered by the wine. I took a sniff after some "exercise" and quite some hours late, I got *urgh* stale cigar. Granted that the scent was supposed to be wine, just that to me... It smelt more like stale cigar than wine to me. This needs getting used to.
