    Black Cat

    This was the 1st imp I grabbed from my lab-fresh package. Fitting considering I have two wonderful curious 10 week old boy kittens purposely distracted with the priority cardboard box in order to keep them away from the bpals....Black Cat seems to already have been in effect before it even arrived! Anyways, this is a clean soapy rose with I think myrrh and maybe oppoponax. Smells sleek and clean.

    Come Slowly—Eden!

    Ooh. apple that stays apple. and I can actually smell honeysuckle too. Golden floral sweet sunny. Doesn't stick around super long but its worth it!

    Really nice warm sweet floral blend. Something about the mandarin is making this smell foody...like sweet hawaiian bread or portuguese sweet bread? The tea rose isn't pungent, hence it allows the calla and lilac to balance out the bouquet...but I still get most sweet bread with warm smooth florals. Weird!

    The Complaint of Daphnis

    Sweet honey berries and leather? We have some tandeming going on that makes this smell different than expected. There's bright juniper berry notable when wet, but it fades into the honey berries smell. Black musk fades into the leather. Well blended but much lighter and natural cologne-like than expected. Good though!

    Glistening Waterfall

    Nice sunny bright green apple floral with true patchouli leaf..that actually doesn't bash into it. Who woulda thunk. Drydown: Its green apple that actually sticks around! Not getting any ammonia or weirdness. Its just green apple, true patchouli and wafting florals. Pleasant summer scent!

    2019: This is another year not strong on the patchouli. Wet: smells frankincensey juniperish and floral, like my grandma Nina's perfum. Dry: patchouli root ((not leaf)) and frankincense take over with powdery juniper and oakmoss. The east african musk just gives a bay rum spiciness and honey is not present. Seems everything is lighter and more generally palatable this year? Yet unfamiliar... I see a theme going on...

    Superior Vena Cava

    Uhm ok... so this will take a Taurus' skin chemistry to keep the flowers from fading. Starts out lovely lush floral blood musk with all the trimmings. The blood chypre takes over too much and I smell more metallic in drydown. I can see this one's potential! Really! Its just frustrating that the notes boomerang on me. Everything stays present, its in opposite order later though.

    Honey, Hay Absolute, and Amber

    I get low throw honey and a touch of amber with a slight suggestion of hay. Less hay than I thought it would oomph, compared to past bpals. I thought I'd be burning the amber torch in the barn on this one. Lovely blend though.

    Pulmonary Valve

    This is all carrot seed and white musk on me. Refreshing for the right moment on the right person. Tiny tang of black currant but I'm really stretching the truth on that one.

    Twelve Tastes in the Classification of Passion

    Wet: a jumble of awesome wet juicy and strange herbal brown notes...? One of the most confusing blind test bpals I've experienced. Thoroughly disappointed in my smelling talent after reading the description, with "oh...that's all. And I couldn't figure it out. :("This is one of those cases where only 3 notes can absolutely baffle me and I realize I would make a terrible "Nose". Dry: mandarin that sticks around longer than all other notes? How does that? Well, clove too. The carnation is the confounder, here- The note that's getting all contorted. Its still hard to identify dry, but after deducing what I could identify..that's it! This is a strange but good, and darker toned mandarin scent.

    Pegasus Junk

    Something about this makes me giggle everytime I apply it...to the point that I HAVE to buy a bottle. Smells like shortbread cookies next to white tea, to the unknowing nose! And I can't shake it even after reading the description! I love it.

    Honeyed Amber and Red Currant

    Wet, getting a low throw version but its evenly mixed between liquid clear honey over white amber and a splash of red currant. Reminds me of capri sun juice boxbags? When it dries down the currant gets stronger with a warm amber background. I was expecting the oomph of EatMe currant with like strong orange amber wildflower honey over dark reddish amber. That's my fault... this is great in its own right.

    Aerodynamic Junk

    Mostly clove and leather with some warm vanilla/sandalwood notes that provide staying power. A pleasing, gothy melancholy, refined, gender neutral scent. I could smell this everywhere I go and not get tired of it. The scent version of how I *wished* my 90's goth self was perceived...but we all know I looked not exactly THAT cool. Ahhh being poor and young!

    Ganymede’s Junk

    A lovely floral sandalwood! Mostly smell pink carnation and clove, as my brain neutralizes detection of sandalwood. Soft sweetly green muguet is a lovely addition. All notes are relatively easy to detect on me. Seems dominant notes vary quite a bit depending on the wearer yet everyone is having a relatively pleasant experience. Yay!

    Gargoyle Junk

    Wet phase, the frankincense is sweet...smells like hope and fear set free. Drydown, frankincense is even with the rose resin. Rockrose is muted, only a touch of floral brightness. Definite dry stone smell but not overwhelming. Closer to a white marble. Has a dry early autumn feel, like uhhh when you attend a country fair- the smell of the dry dirt walkpath surrounded by acres of grass, wildflowers, hay bales and (yes) rocks. Nicely nostalgic!
