    Le Lethe Claw Polish

    Love this formula! Drys fast, covered very well in one coat. Beautiful red. Also, lasts pretty well. I painted my toe nails 3 days ago, worked on my feet all day, and no chipping!

    Pralines and Powdered Sugar

    I have iffy results with cream and milk notes. This one, after it dried, smelled like buttercream frosting on me!

    Mornings in New Orleans

    The imp smelled amazing, the chicory on my skin overpowered everything coffee however

    White Peach and Incense Hair Gloss

    I have really long hair, the strands aren't thick individually, more on the normal to thin side I but there are tons of densely packed strands. I've used this a few times now after the shower and I love it. The scent is a delicious spiced peach smell, but I also really like the hair gloss itself. I use it after the shower while my hair is still wet. 2-3 sprays all over, sort of like a detangler before I comb it out. It doesn't feel heavy or oily after it dries and I can still smell the spiced peaches!

    Hesiod's Phoenix

    This smells a lot like Lyonesse to me (and on me), a softer sweeter version. More subtle and less perfumey, but it's defintly in the same scent family. Very pretty scent.

    The Other Hot Chocolate

    This is everything I wanted gelt to be, minus that note that goes powdery. It's rich chocolate, not super sweet. A chocolate scent I can wear! Edit: it smells like cocoa butter when dry

    Floral Haters Gonna Hate

    LIZ A light, feminine vanilla floral perfume and a swirl of smoke and leather. (I've never gotten any floral from Liz, just vanilla, smoke, and sweet leather.) Bilquis Honey, myrrh, lily of the valley, rose otto, fig leaf, almond, ambrette, red apple, and warm musk. (To me, warm spicy apple scent) Dana o'shee Offerings of milk, honey and sweet grains were made to placate these creatures, and it is that the basis of the scent created in their name. Baobhan Sith Grapefruit, white tea, apple blossom and ginger. (Grapefruit and gingery tea, on me)

    Peach III

    If someone had told me smelling like peach rings and wine was the most amazing thing ever.. I would have been skeptical, but it works! This is a very gorgeous scent! The rose is light, the peach sweet, and the wine kind of grounds it on me,

    Summer Lace

    I really love the caramelized tobacco note in this perfume. I get the darkness of the tobacco but it's more rounded and sweet. The other laces I've tried were so so to fail on me, but this is wonderfull. It's light, and sweet.
  10. Summer lace. I amp the caramelized tobacco note, and it does wonderful things with the smell of cocoa butter lotion!

    Allergy Questions, Allergies and other reactions to oils

    I also suggest swapping, and not buying bottles right away. I found what I wanted to wear based on fairytales or movies I like, is vastly different then what my skin agrees with. BPAL has a lot of different rose scents you could try, if the rose worked. Not all of them come out being super floral either. For example: Persephone: Pomegranate and rose Jezebel: honey, roses, orange blossom and sandalwood Rapture: Moroccan rose, Sumatran rose, mandarin, Egyptian myrrh, night-blooming jasmine, bergamot and neroli thrust into Arabian musk. La Bella Donna Della Mia Mente: myrtle and dry, sweet melilot with wild rose, pomegranate juice and peach blossom against a background of deep aquatic notes and a twirl of melancholy autumn breezes. Croquet: Pink lime, pink grapefruit, white nectarine, wild rose, sage, woody patchouli, bergamot, and ornery hedgehog musk. (citrusy and pink) London: Venerable Victorian Tea Rose… twisted, blackened and emboldened with wickedness. (this rose has no green note unlike The Rose)

    Lilu equivilant in bpal?

    Maybe something hibiscus? Machu Picchu (GC, wanderlust) Sweet tropical fruits burst through deep, wet rainforest boughs, enormous steamy blossoms, over thin mountaintop breezes, mingled with the soft, rich golden scent of Peruvian amber. EHECATL (GC, Excolo) The Aztec God of the Winds. He is one of the faces of the Feathered Serpent, and in this aspect he gave life to the sun and the moon, revives the dead, and breathes love into the hearts all of men. Hibiscus, matcha, white musk, and lime.

    The Perilous Parlor

    This worked on me, which was an unexpected surprise. It smells like a baked pear with vanilla sauce when wet. Then as it dries if takes on this creamy Victorian vanilla smell. With only a faint whisper of pear. It reminds me of how Dorian smells on my skin but softer and less spice.

    Fresh, Fruity Florals

    I wear mostly fruity florals. I've found some roses work, others don't. I wear persephone as my fruity rose. The ones below are without rose! (Diabolus)Baobhan Sith: Grapefruit, white tea, apple blossom and ginger. (Excolo)Algaea: Three golden ambers, bright musk, peach wine and myrtle (Madtea party)Tweedledee: Ridiculous! Kumquat, white pepper, white tea and orange blossom. (Madtea party)Tweedledum: Absurd! Green mango, fig, patchouli and green tea. (Stardust)Fairy wine: An ethereal vintage, steeped with dandelion, honey, and red currants.

    As stated above, this is sweet musky sexiness. It has a perfume like feel to it as well.
