    Lamia

    Wet, Lamia opens up with the most intoxicating peach/apricot note. How I wish it stayed! But the coconut and orchid quickly come front and center. I don't get many other notes, including the vetiver which is normally one of my death notes but I never get the dreaded hair/bug spray effect. I can tell there are other notes rounding the scent out, perhaps the champaca and amber. But overall this is a very light and tropical perfume on my skin. Not what I typically go for yet I absolutely adore it still. Its just sooo pretty. I'm so happy to have a bottle and I love wearing this one for work days and in summer.

    Rakshasa

    I was gifted an imp of this in a swap and I've reached for it so often since! I've been craving a good rose and Rakshasa does not disappoint. I do get a hint of citrus in the opening, but Rakshasa quickly settles into a primarily rose+sandalwood scent. I don't get much patchouli but I know its grounding things out. This scent gives all the rose incensey vibes I love. If you like spellbound, I recommend giving Rakshasa a go.

    Mouse Circus

    Words can't express how much I love Mouse Circus. I generally go for the darker scents, but this one I reach for when I want to feel comforted. Its very light and playful, and reminds me of my childhood. What I love about it is how it morphs. Wet its all popcorn, or more specifically, kettelcorn with a touch of buttery sweetness. I could never wear it if this stage remained, because I just really don't find myself wanting to smell of popcorn. But it does a disappearing act, and makes way for a vanilla cotton candy. I don't get much of the wood but I know it must be there because the dry down isn't straight cotton candy. Overall its very much a carnival scent, and thats exactly what it ends up reminding me of. I would imagine anyone that liked Midway (which I never had the pleasure of trying) or Solstice Scent's Foxcroft Fairgrounds, would like this. And bonus: CUTEST. LABEL. EVER.

    Dead Leaves and Maple Sap

    This is hands down my favorite dead leaves. I never would have tried it had a wonderful forum member not sent it to me as a frimp. I assumed I would have smelled like maple syrup which is not my thing. This is glorious! The most perfect fall scent I’ve tried in a long time. True dead leaves + Maple sap. Bravo Beth!

    Dorian

    I believe Dorian is one of Beth's greatest scent accomplishments. I remember a decade ago ordering it in my first imp pack and just being blown away. My first reaction was damn, this smells really good. And I remember thinking how unique and beautiful it was. At some point a year or so ago, I used up the last of my Dorian and got caught up in all the LE releases and never got around to replacing it. Until yesterday! It was like being reunited with a first love. I'm surrounded in a cloud of sugared vanilla tea swirling through an eloquent victorian fougere (magic?) with an underlying musk that is anything but over the top, but rather rounds out the scent perfectly. Sometimes I get a hint of lemon if I sniff really hard, but its so faint that I have to wonder if its there at all. Simply put, Dorian is a masterpiece.

    Snake's Tongue

    I must amp the moss in this because Snake's Tongue is very similar to what I remember Banded Sea Snake smelling like, which I loved. However, this is more resin-y. It's not a heavy scent and I enjoy it in all its stages - wet to dry. Everything is very well blended. I'll also add I LOVE the label art. I'm so happy to have this gem in my collection!

    Looking for a BPAL that Resembles a Favorite Perfume

    Masquerade smells very much like Karma!
  8. Oh! I have Hell's Belle in a little bag by my bed just begging to be tried! I hope you love it! It will always be a favorite of mine.

    Old books... Books, paper, libraries

    Old Moon falls into this category for me and its one of my favorite scents. I love wearing it at night especially.

    Fate's Jester

    I didn't expect to like Fate's Jester as much as I did. I found myself reaching for my tester over and over again. This reminded me of Silky Bat, but better. Its an uplifting scent and not too foody. I would love to have a bottle!

    Perfumey scents

    Tavern of Hell, Black Butterfly Moon, and I've heard Coin Trick is this way as well - though I haven't tried it!

    The Perfect Lavender

    I have been reaching for A Moment in Time. It reminds me of TKO and I love wearing it at night especially. I am anxiously awaiting my bottle of Lavender Lace. I hope to add it to my favorite lavender blends! ETA: Lavender lace didn't give me all that much lavender - mostly tobacco. I will retest again once it settles more.

    Eve

    Eve smells like the love child of Gothic Horror and Morocco. I do not care for Morocco and when I saw the comparison in other reviews, I was a little skeptical of purchasing. But this is so much better. Eve is so well blended and is just a beautiful scent. I love this when its first applied and as it blooms on the skin. Im going to have to test it a few more times though because the honeyed powder scent starts to take over on the dry down. Unfortunately honey ruins so many bpals that would otherwise be perfect for me.

    I've never found a scent I liked!

    Elf smells just like jelly beans to my nose. Eat me is a delicious vanilla cake scent. Mouse Circus starts out popcorn but morphs to cotton candy! It’s really blows my mind and don’t let the popcorn scare you bc it wears as cotton candy. There are so many gourmand bpals that I know you’ll find something you’ll love!
