    Rain Scents

    I came across two more rain scents that I haven't tried - Sad Ted Behind the Wall - Rain-splashed strawberries, and Peugeot Punch - The Christmas lights of the 17th arrondissement glittering in the rain: white musk and ambergris sparkling violet and blue. Both from Yuletide with Lilith 2019. two more - Waiting from Lilith 2016 - Raindrops and asphalt, lavender, pale musk, and white oudh, and Under the Silvery Moonbeams from Five Paintings That Smell Like February 2022 - Rain-spattered, shimmering soft green mosses, mints, matcha, jasmine, cardamom, chestnut, pine needle, and sweet labdanum.

    Snake Milk

    I bought Snake Milk from the lab and it arrived about a week ago. It is very heavy on the condensed milk. I ordered Shadwell along with it which also contains condensed milk as a scent note so I'm thinking maybe they were blended at the same time and that's why Snake Milk is so milky? Does anyone know if the condensed milk note weakens over time, or if not, do you think the Snake Oil will deepen with age?

    Evil Does Not Sleep

    This reminds me of a bedtime version of Lurid (lavender and ozone) which has been oos for a long time. It really does help me sleep, Upstart Crow's review above is hilarious and dead on.

    This was recently restocked by the lab, right in time for summer. This is an all-time favorite of mine, even though it contains amber, which is probably my least favorite note, so that says something! It's a fresh glowing almost effervescent scent without being fizzy, it smells sweet without being fruit or candy like, although the honeydew, which I love, is obvious in this. I think it's a great scent for the gym.. running, etc, and the "night air" aspect is amazing.

    Best Scents For Aging?

    From 2006?! That's incredible. I'm so happy to hear that! I'll be putting mine aside then. Thank you for your advice.

    Best Scents For Aging?

    I'm wondering if anyone knows how Smut and Hunger are aged? I have two bottles of each and not sure if they'll do well after time. Not sure if this is the right place to post this question. Thanks!

    No Pls

    I used to take care of a girl with autism whose favorite phrases were "no please" and "dragon" when she was angry, so obviously, I needed to get this for the memory alone. It does remind me of her, it's a scent that screeches at you becoming increasingly angry but still silly somehow, and does smell like pencil somewhat too, which reminds me of helping her at school. I love the orange blossom in it, and the pepper and tobacco are what transform it into an aggressive scent. It's really a special one for me!

    Rain Scents

    I think the most rainy scents are Shanghai Tunnel, Mag Mell, June Gloom, On the Porch in the Rain, Dandelions and Concrete, Shadwell and Stormclouds Over the Midway. And probably Slate Black Clouds Tumbled Over Eden, but I haven't tried that one yet, it's on my wishlist ( :

    The Snow-Woman

    This smells like straight up gingerale to me mostly, which was a happy surprise because I love fizzy scents. It dries to more sake-like and snow. I never get pine which is a good thing by me. Even though it smells like soda, it's still very adult and upscale smelling. I love this one and I'm glad I blind bottled it.

    Randegg In The Snow With Ravens

    This is a really beautiful perfume. At the beginning I smell the frosty snow and almond paste/amaretto, and the middle stage is like a very grown up cherry and lemon icey/slushie drink. I can also smell the bricks somewhere between those stages. At then end it dries to a pretty scent that I keep craving, I think it is the Oman incense. It's a very unique perfume.

    Don't Touch

    This is exactly as described. I'm not an apple fan, but I love the concept and bottle art. It's green apple to me with snakey sinister undertones. Haven't picked out the pomegranate seed yet, which is funny because that's what I had for a snack today not knowing it was in my perfume! I do detect the pomegranate in the end, it adds something sweet and sour but you wouldn't know it's there unless you read the description.

    High-Strung Daisies

    I'm getting the opposite of warm and spicy like a couple reviewers said above. To me this is a screechy pink floral and candy scent, really high-strung, and I think best for a young girl or teen. It's a cute silly scent!

    Medea

    This starts out weird but dries to a lovely cucumber melon scent somehow. I might even pair it with squirting cucumber or a meal interrupted. It's really beautiful and I look forward to wearing it in summer.

    Seth

    Seth is my favorite masculine scent from BPAL so far. It makes my eyes roll back in my head when I smell it! I can't describe it other than it blends beautifully - the honeyed leather myrrh and champaca flower come out most for me with the papyrus making it a little bit crisp.

    Cake, cookies, donuts, baked goods, even Cinnabon

    Yes! Waiting for more reviews of Chocolate Babka because I did not like Olisbab something or other (the bread one) from this year's Lupercalia. I'll probably get Chocolate Buttercream from the lupers and I have Amor to show.. and love it. I was thinking about trying Hildegard's cakes. Have you tried it?
