  1. Did anyone else mention Nanshe? That's my favorite Lab clove because it also has orange!
  2. VERY SLIGHTLY HAUNTED DOLLHOUSE A life in miniature, manipulated by deft little hands: sugared carnation and wispy white wine grape. In the bottle: very rich, very spicy carnation--a lot of clove and very little floral. Wet on skin: the same carnation note and a sweet white grape note which reminds me of Titania. Dry on skin: baby pink carnations, sweet and soft. A good perfume for a day when I want to smell carnations but don't want my co-workers asking who got flowers.

    This is perfect, from sap to leaves to petals to the hint of bitterness. If you rolled around in a meadow full of dandelions (or, tbh, my front yard), this is what you would smell like.

    Post-Mortem Laureatus

    At first there was a hint of fruity greenery plus sandalwood, then just sandalwood. A happy-with-my-decant scent for me.

    Garden of Death

    Oh, wow, I adore this scent--it's a really dark, rich, well-blended green scent. On me, it's more forest than garden, a forest full of trees in full leaf, a few shy blossoms near the ground, and a sharpness from autumn chill.

    The Two-Tailed Sogg

    This starts off with a lovely astringent zing of pink grapefruit, but by the time the perfume has dried, I'm left with a swampy, dank note from the moss and a powdery note from the orris.

    The Ta-Ta

    This is just gorgeous--I get mostly carnation, with varying pops of coffee, leather and tobacco leaves. Definitely unusual as well as beautiful. I might get a backup of this one!

    The Wiley Grasser

    On me this is almost entirely strawberry sugar. If I stick my nose against my skin and inhale, I can smell the pine, otherwise it's just pure cotton candy.

    The Golden Apple Of The Sun

    Definitely golden apple, it's very crisp and juicy and fresh. I also get a strong whiff of ginger, the tiniest hint of clove from the carnation and a sugary sweetness which is probably the hibiscus.

    Autumn Cider

    Initially, a blast of boozy apple, then a waft of cinnamon, and then the brown sugar takes over and that's all I smell.

    The Black Apple Of Saturn

    Initially, this is an apple-pear scent, but then the black musk takes over, and I get a dry, bitter, powdery scent. Interesting, but not me.

    Regina Erebi

    This is a very dark, very rich berry scent. I think it's the mulberry that cuts the overwhelming sweetness pomegranate can have sometimes. Definitely a bottle purchase!

    The Green Apple Of Venus

    This started off as a really sweet blended fruit scent, like canned fruit cocktail, then the violet leaf and tea rose came out and it wound up smelling like gardenia at the end.

    I get a wisp of pomegranate, a wisp of a heavy floral like rose and a big strong punch of high-quality dirt. In fact, this reminds me of Ace Hardware's store brand of topsoil, which is the best I've found in 15 years of gardening. It's certainly evocative, but since I can smell like this by rolling in one of my flowerbeds, I won't be buying a bottle!

    Dry, cold autumn wind. A rustle of red leaves, a touch of smoke and sap in the air. The bitter scent of decaying leaves plus the scent of dead and dried leaves. The bitter part reeeally made me think of romaine lettuce that's gone bad--so weird!

    Ghosts In Love

    I was really hoping for the carnation in this one to be strong, but no luck. The sandalwood predominated, but while this is not the same musk as The Zoom, which makes me think of clean baby skin, this also dries down to a soft musk on me, very dry and powdery.

    Lemon, Lemon, Lemony Goodness

    I love Lemon-Scented Sticky Bat, Skytyping with Chemtrails and Geek.Goth (of course, all of them are LEs, sigh).

    Lemon-Scented Sticky Bat

    I get that sweet lemon scent also, but when it starts to dry a rich tobacco leaf scent joins the lemon. I love this and am having to sit on my hands to keep from buying a backup!

    Recommend for fruity floral?

    I'll second the recommendation for Frumious Bandersnatch--it's one of my top 10 scents. And Daiyu from the Carnaval is a lovely, sexy berry with undertones of jasmine.
  20. Jammies


    On me, this is just a gorgeous floral, and smells exactly like Lush's The Olive Branch without the orange. I'm definitely getting the tobacco flower and the gardenia, but no noticeable geranium. It is very strong, so I'm really debating whether I need a bottle, because I have a feeling my decant will last a lonnnnnnnnnng time.

    Spinning Multicolored Metallic Pinwheel

    How did I not ever review this? It's one of my favorite scents! Definitely fizzy, sparkly, fruity, fun with a little naughty booziness. This has become my winter go-to scent when I want to dream of summer days.

    Are bpal blends all-natural?

    Jayne, you really do need to try the perfumes on before you make a final decision. I do wish you had asked here before you made your order, because I think Gaueko in the Excolo category is the perfect smoky lavender!

    Playing with a Loaded Gun

    Picture a vital, beautiful, zaftig woman making cookies with her lover. She's sweating a tiny bit because the kitchen is warm, and as she pulls out the last tray of cookies, she notices a burnt one on the outside of the tray. She slides the rest of the cookies onto a cooling rack, but lifts the burnt one to her mouth. Her lover watches as she devours the sweet, spicy cookie, all but one tiny blackened crumb which falls to rest against her skin, just above her bra. Her lover licks a finger, picks up the crumb, and brings it to her lips. This scent smells like that blackened cookie crumb with a slight overlay of warm skin musk.

    On Darkness

    In the bottle, this is all lavender. Wet, the geranium starts to peer out. Dry, it's definitely an embrace--dark, cuddly lavender and geranium with a pure, sweet note saving it from being completely herbal (which I would have liked as well, but the sugary part was unexpected and gorgeous). Somehow, it makes me think of sugared flowers on a very fancy cake, and I may need two bottles.

    The Season of Ghosts

    I wanted to love this, as I adore all citrus scents and am crazy about geranium. Sadly, in the bottle I got lemon cleaner, and dry on my skin, it was a savory, herbal lemongrass. Good on poultry, not so much on Jammies.
