    So far this is my favorite of the Yules that I had the pleasure of testing! This is (to my nose) the literal love child of TKO and Snow White. I love this! The lavender opens the scent and dries down to a sweet, soft finish. On it's own Snow White was always a little too youthful and girlie for me. The TKO balances the coconutty/almond-esque snow note beautifully with an herbal edge while the marshmallow blends seamlessly with the snow note. I can see myself adding this to my bedtime bpal rotation. Perfection!

    Looking for a BPAL that Resembles a Favorite Perfume

    Can anyone recommend a scent (or a few scents layered together) for Dior's Addict? Preferably the older version.

    Ketchup! 6-6-22

    Catching up on some summer swap questions. Hope you have a great week! If your bday is during the swap, how are you planning to celebrate? --> My bday is in April so not during this swap Likewise, how do you celebrate relevant spiritual holidays in this time period? --> N/A Anything you want from the UK? --> Not specifically that I can think of Seeds, y/n? -->Yes Are you interested in skincare/shampoo/conditioner? --> No to skin care as I follow a really simple regimine by my derm because my face is so sensitive. As far as shampoo/conditioner, Indie style products don't ever cut it for my hair. I need all the cones etc to combat this frizz! Are you interested in tights? If so, what thickness, style, and size? -->sure! Size medium will usually work. No preference on style or thickness Do you use tarot decks? Would you like to receive more - and if so, can you list the ones you already have? --> I've never used tarot but am not opposed to it and curious about it. What do you think of the art on this website? https://www.printisdead.co.uk/ --->It's not really my thing Is loose leaf tea good, or do you prefer bagged? ---> I like both! I make arm warmers. I make them from sweaters I thrifted. They can be all one color, or stripes of different colors. They can be long, to the elbows, or shorter. If you would like a pair, tell me your favorite colors. Solids are more generally elegant, Stripes can be as wildly funky as you wish. Long? Short? Cashmere? Tell me your fingerless mitts arm warmer dreams. --->If I lived in a cooler climate maybe but it's SO hot where I live and winters are typically mild. I just don't see myself wearing them. Paintbox Question: --->Journey in Satchidananda soap looks divine I am learning to do embroidery. Would you possibly like a simple hand embroidered piece? sure! If you would like this is there a simple favorite flower or summer symbol, like a bee? any! I love floral anything and I'm all about bees. Love them What kind of sprite would you prefer? A ninja or to know the ID right away? Ninja

    Sugar, Poppy Tar, and Red Currant

    I ordered a tester of this and after the first sniff, I put in an order for a bottle. I love it THAT much. I enjoy scents that are sweet but balanced by other notes, in this case an almost soporific spice from the poppy. I was wary of the red currant. It doesn't work for me in Eat Me and fruity notes can be iffy. But the currant is subdued and just blends seamlessly with the other notes. I'm not big on commercial fragrances and there are very few that I enjoy, but this is almost identical on my skin to Juliette Has a Gun MMMMM..., except it has more depth and I love it more. My favorite of all the trios I've tried so far, it stands on its on and doesn't seem too linear or lacking (even though its only comprised of three notes). This sweet poppy concotion is highly addictive.

    If your top 5 scents are... Then try these!

    Ok here are my current top 5! Snake Smut Urd Hell's Belle Mme. Moriarty Solstice Lace Runner up or tied with my top 5 😆: The Other Miss Forcible As you can probably tell, I love a good sugared incense and sweet notes paired with deeper notes like patchouli and resins. I don't do bpal honey though.

    Brood X

    I am so glad I was able to test this beauty. She is dark yet subdued. Earthy yet refined. Amber and hay give way to warmth while the sugarcane adds just the right amount of sweetness. I want to roll around in this! The hazelnut lends a decadent richness to this shadowy, earthy blend. If sweet+earth is your jam, BroodX is for you. I for one love this.

    Rose Petals and Palo Santo

    True rose (that doesn't go powdery) backed by Palo Santo. It's a very straightforward scent. While its very pretty but I do wish the palo was just a bit stronger, but thats because I love the scent of palo! Rose lovers will love this one. I could see this layering beautifully with incensey blends.

    Magnolia scent?

    Hell's Belle is the most magnolia forward scent I own in bpal. Its got a spicey edge but its beautiful. Absolutely recommend that one.

    What would you put in a BPAL starter pack?

    If I could curate the ultimate starter pack: 1. Snake Oil (must have) 2. Dorian (the other must have) 3. Spellbound or Scherezade (sexy incense) 4. Zombi (earthy) 5. Vixen or Hell's Belle (unique florals) 6. No. 93 Engine or Tavern of Hell (unique/complex GC favorites) 7. Mme. Moriarty (I associate this with Beth and to me its quintessential bpal) 8. Alice, The Caterpillar, The Mad Hatter, or White Rabbit (Gotta have the Mad Tea Party!) 9. Elf (RPG fave) 10. Bewitched or The Apothecary (something green and fresh)

    Blacklight-Reactive Poster

    So happy I had the opportunity to try this. First off, LOVE the label. The scent itself is one of those WOW scents that only BPAL can pull off. How did the exact smell of those things get in here? Perplexing. Dank. Nostalgic. The Nag Champa pulls to the front the longer this wears on the skin. If you want an experience and not just a perfume, its a must try!

    When your favorite GC blends are discontinued

    I just discovered Fallen also and I LOVE it. Its so beautiful! Violet and Vetiver are usually not notes I even like but they work so well in Fallen and don't go weird at all on my skin. I don't know anything else that smells similar but now I'm more inclined to try more scents with violet.

    High-Strung Daisies

    This was a frimp from the lab with my last order. Its not something I'd really pick for myself but I must say, I love it! Its not the most complex, beautiful perfume. But its fun! I chose it today for work and really find it uplifting. Its definitely a "pink" scent. I get all of the notes in this but they are very well blended. Its sweet without being cloyingingly sweet, and I can see people that aren't floral fans still enjoying this. Up close its actually pretty faint once it dries down, however, its one of those scents that is still somehow wafting around me and I get these little glorious whiffs now and again. I would love to have this in a bottle and highly recommend when you just want to wear something sweet and fun.
