    What do bottles and labels look like?

    I just got back from running errands. For some reason grandmother insisted I get her AXE deodorant (yes, for men) for her cruise. I see that the thread has exploded from my hasty posting. What I meant to post was that the other label I've seen of Cottonmouth shows a much more vibrant, pink snake and it's on the right hand side. Like the one Little Bird posted. Thank you, Little Bird for clearing up the confusion. And TwilightEyes, I'm envious of your snake pits. I'm slowly collecting them all

    What do bottles and labels look like?

    Quick question, do the snakepits have different labels? I was going through past BPAL etsy sales and Cottonmouth looks a lot different than what the bottles I've been seeing on ebay. The bottles I usually see are hot pink with the snake on the right hand side. This is the BPAL etsy cottonmouth bottle I saw: http://www.etsy.com/transaction/132158804?

    I want a BPAL that smells like Bath & Body Works...

    ME TOO! I have yet to find anything that smells even close to Black Chamomile. It's so wonderful. On MUA someone said Henri Bendel's Wild Fig is a wash for it. It's true. It's very similar but not an exact copy. It's a discontinued scent but they brought it back for the holidays. I got the trio rollerball set last month so I can confirm it's the same BC smell. The HB SA said they sometimes bring it back for the holidays but not a guarantee. As for BPAl substitute, I have no idea. I'm a month old newbie.

    I want a BPAL that smells like Bath & Body Works...

    Totally necro-ing this thread but I've been on the look out for Black Chamomile. It arrived in 2009 on the aromatherapy line but was discontinued until Holiday 2012. People re-sell the pillow mist and body wash for $50+ I would really love a BPAL or any other scent alternative as I'm running out of my BC lotion stockpile. I'm a BPAL newbie with a shoddy sense of smell so I cannot discern anything. It's a unisex, comforting scent. One reviewer on amazon said they smelled coconut. Not sure. I typed up some stuff that's printed on the bottle. I've included a partial ingredients list of only scents that pertain to it. No need for all the chemical names with numbers. "This limited edition formula is infused with bamboo charcoal extract to help detoxify overnight and chamomile essential oil to enhance sleep" "Bitter Orange Peel extract, bergamot fruit oil, matricaria/german chamomile flower oil, macadamia ternifolia seed oil, spiraea ulmaria flower extract, melissa officinalis leaf extract, tilia cordata flower extract, aloe barbadensis leaf extract, calendula officinalis flower extract, cucumber fruit extract, basil flower/leaf extract, charcoal powder extract" edit: tried going onto B&BW's website for the notes but although they list BC, it's not pulling up. edit 2: Went on MUA. Seems like I'm not the only one on the hunt. A user suggested the coconut note might actually be fig, and suggested the discontinued Henri Bendel Wild Fig.
