    Carnation, milk, honey and shimmers of bergamot. Very beautifully balanced. Later on the carnation and milk shine the most. I've come to the realization that the best BPAL blends are in the General Catalog ❤️

    Knave of Snowflakes

    On my skin the Snow White coconut chill overtakes everything. The buttery pastry is trying to crack through the layer of Snow White's chill, but ultimately fails.

    Murderous Frogs

    green apples with a citrus kick and something vaguely vegetal and powdery.

    Le Lèthè

    This is a rare instance when red musk behaves on my skin. The red musk is drenched in tobacco, labdanum and nutmeg and I'm happy that the red musk usual incensey quality is muted here. Later on the tobacco and labdanum assert themselves and shut the dancefloor down. So good, spicy resiny tobacco gourgeousness ❤️

    Clown Footstool

    I get only buttercream and vanilla sugar. I was really expecting some serious white flowers action. I sniffed and sniffed the drydown incessantly, but no sign of the gardenia or tuberose.

    Wild Plum, Green Tea, and White Jasmine

    Right off the bat the wild plum comes out shining. It's neither sweet or sour. Then the green tea joins the party, giving off a fresh bright vibe, like green tea always does. Later on the jasmine shows up and i know it because i smell threads of something lightly smoky wafting through the air. The blend manages to stay fresh with accents of plum and a bit of gravitas from the jasmine. It's a fruity floral with the green tea keeping the other two notes in check.

    Two Women on Veranda Overlooking the Sea

    When i put it on, there's a green aquatic element here that reminds of something from the GC collection. I have figured it out!!! This is a wonderful replacement for Herbert West from the Lovecraft collection. The rose in both blends are so much alike, perhaps the one here is a tad bit more aquatic and green tinged. A green aquatic transparent rose 🌹

    Coffee Bean, Cacao, and Khus

    I feared this trio would end up acrid because of the coffee bean and smoky because of the vetiver, but it wasn't the case at all. The cacao note doesn't go powdery at all, it enhances the remaining two notes and gives off a bit of sweetness. The coffee bean comes out more and more and gets a bit smoky. As time goes by, it echoes to me of a drier version of Jiaolong only a whole lot less sugar syrupy and much less dense. Go get yourselves a bottle of this trio while it's still up. It could've easily been part of the Koffeeklatsch Yule blends or Lupercalia Cocoa blends.

    Aged Shango is the best because is settles down and doesn't smell as overwhelming as when it's fresh. The drydown on my skin brings out the red apples, very realistic and pleasant. I'm happy with the outcome considering the plethora of notes.

    Wanton Airs, Bodiless Airs

    I'm so happy to have blind bottled it before it was discontinued. It's an airy sweetish cognac with a smidge of bergamot twang anchored on a bed of oud. It's airy and a tad transparent, but still robust and well defined.

    The Soap Bubbles

    Right off the bat, i smell the mandarin and pom wrapped in this detergent-like cleanliness. Little by little the dry fruits emerge, enhancing the tang of the pom and the whole blend moves a bit into the powdery territory. It's a clean frankinsence/ champa base with mandarin and tangy pom and dried fruits anchored in there. I wanted this to be a bit sweeter and headier because there's brandy and jasmine, but alas 🤷‍♂️

    The Wind Strike Chill and Cold

    I get lilac and refreshing white mint. Sometimes this echoes Salt Phoenix to me mainly due to the lilac, but without the salt note and lavender. Over time the white mint puts in check the lilac headiness and you get a melange of those two notes. Can't wait to wear it in the sprintime.

    Dead Leaves, Praline, and Sheer Vanilla

    I don't get any dead leaves here, maybe a whisper of a ghostly vanilla. What i also get is a note akin to white cotton or white suede, a bit smelling like iris and white musk. As time goes by, there's a bit of a plastic vibe emerging, but it doesn't overwhelm the scent. Clean white sheer cotton/ cloth - that's the visual i'm getting.

    The orange blossom and sandalwood reign supreme here. There's also a pickle vibe, mostly due to the sandalwood. In the end, the orange blossom here is just too much for me.
