    Looking for a BPAL that Resembles a Favorite Perfume

    Black moths has some notes but not all.

    The Bride

    It's the base of Attrocious Attic to me, without the rosiness. I get the comparison to Antique Lace also. There was an awful moment at the beginning where it smelled on skin likeold vase water, but it quickly dissipated. I think I like it.

    Blessing

    An extremely ‘clean’, extremely positive, gentle-but-powerful oil. Use this oil for healing rites (physical, emotional, and psychological), when beginning new ventures, and to bless new unions, births, and rites of passage. Blessing oil is used to cleanse and sanctify new homes, businesses, and sacred spaces, ensuring that you begin your endeavors there with a clean slate. I'm hoping this is the right thread. Blessing oil summer 2014. It's beautiful. It has a really rosey scent, with a green background. It makes me feel happy. However, I'm wondering if it has brought a lot of painful stuff to the surface in order to let go of it. This has been hard. It may be coincidental but I have been having an odd time recently, really suffering alternating with feeling very peaceful.

    Showers of Gold

    The last time I used this I found an envelope with money in in my home. I'd put it aside for a specific bill as per the writing on the outside, and completely forgotten it for two years!! There was £50 in it iirc! I've used this very sparingly and sporadically as I only had a small decant but it does work.

    Anthelion

    Mental impression: light through a reddish pink gem stone. Scent: there's something about this that reminds me of I think Doves Heart. There's also a hint of whatever makes Hod smell metallic to me. I'm guessing there's clove, carnation. I've only just used this so I can't post any significant findings other than it seems very relaxing. I've been a bit stressed today, then went really tired. I'm now more mentally alert but my body is melting. Very happy. Edited to remove lavender as I'm not sure it's in here. It's hard to get a good idea of this, very close up there's an almost violet vibe going on. I really like it!

    How full is full?

    Can you explain why there was hardly anything in it then? The base was incredibly thick/high but the fill level really low. The machine can't work perfectly as I've had two bottles of Dorian, one average, the other nearly full to the lid.

    How full is full?

    My bottle of Anesthesia was the lowest fill I've ever had, way below the shoulder, and the base of the bottle was way thicker than normal meaning even less in it. If the bottles are filled by weight, extra glass in the bottle would mean you get less oil.

    June 23, 1868

    At its best on me this was a bit like alyssum single note and a bit like a night blooming garden. At worst it headed into screech, and my bf said I smelt like a urinal cake. I swapped it.

    The Hourglass

    I haven't gotten my nose around this fully, but it's superduperly beautiful on me. Whatever state my skin is in right now, this loves me. It's rose, but not take-over rose, swirled into a deep almost wooden smell. Definitely not a red feeling rose either. First sniff it brought to mind a dark buffed wooden box filled with liqueur preserved cherries, that smell doesn't last, but that's the dark feel behind the rose. Don't buy it though! I might need more!

    Café Mille et une Nuits

    It's really tobacco-y. Such a shame as I wanted coffee too, the cardomom is there a little but it's mainly tobacco.

    Café Mille et une Nuits

    Very strong tobacco with a hint of spice. Not what I hoped for, sadly.

    From You I Have Been Absent in the Spring

    For me the stand out notes are:lily, frankincense and pepper. I'm not sure how often I would wear it but I like it and I was surprised that bf did too, but I think it's the pepper, he's a pepper addict.

    Shamisen

    I ordered this because i love rosewood, i expected sonetging that lay close to the skin, like smoke rolling along. For some reason it makes me think of the film Gremlins. I thought I was getting something that represented the man who sells the mogwai, but it fast morphs into something more befitting a floral gremlin! It has enormous throw, way above my usual perfume choices. The scent itself is tough to describe, it has a clean floral aspect with a slightly smoky undertone, with something green, if only the throw was lessened, i would like it more.

    Unmasking the Sambasô Dancer

    Not at all what I imagined. It's a war of mandarin and what smells like dark musk. I really don't like it. It doesn't have an instant recoil factor but it gets more cloying with each sniff.

    L’Essence de L’Engouement

    Not strawberry for me but raspberry! Delicious cooked raspberries! Wonderful!
