    A Measurement of the Soul

    I'd describe this scent as green and ghostly. It definitely smells woody, as the other reviewers have mentioned, but the ti leaf and the fig make it smell a lot different than your grandma's cedar chest. The sage plays nicely with the cedar, and they both stay close to the skin (and they stick around much longer.) This reminds me a lot of a really fine men's cologne, in a way, but slightly lighter and less citrus-y. I might have to put a dab on my husband, on whom I *adore* cedar and woods in general, to see how it plays on him. This is definitely one of the most interesting BPAL oils I have in my stash, and I'm quite glad that I took the leap on it.

    This was my surprise favorite Yule this year. The description is slightly vague, but I expected something perhaps along the lines of Snow White. However, Chionophobia is something different all together. On me it is very light and maybe a little bit clean-smelling, but not soapy as some of the other reviewers have experienced. Maybe there's a touch of white rose in there that does that for them? I feel like Chionophobia is at the same time delicate but also assertive, which I think makes for the most interesting florals. Someone mentioned that maybe there's a hint of citrus in there, and I agree, there's something sweetly lemon-ish (but not like cleaner, maybe from oakmoss or something??) in there too to brighten it up. It's amazing, because this says "winter floral" to me much more than the other floral-based Yules that I have tried. It doesn't read as particularly cold or icy on me (which I do get from Snow White a little bit), but definitely very bright white. All in all, I was so shocked by how good this one is, I might need more before Yules go away.

    Hot Buttered Rum

    I wanted to try a really hardcore foodie scent from BPAL, as I have mostly avoided them to this point. I am not hugely into sugary or baked-goodsy gourmands in general, though I do occasionally like something along those lines if the mood strikes. I figured that since this also had the element of the butter and the rum that might temper the sweetness just a bit. (For the record, I considered Butter Rum Cookie as well, but I eventually settled on this.) My husband and I are big rum afficionadoes, we have quite the collection of rum and we generally use it in the best kinds of rum drinks: tiki drinks. However, I have tried winter's rum staple, the hot buttered rum, and I am not entirely opposed to it. The BPAL scent version is much more delicious than the real thing, though. The molasses and the cream are indeed very sweet, but the rum and the spices make it much more interesting and layered. It has a baked goods quality to it, but there is a little more depth to it too, just like a good handmade cocktail. Hot Buttered Rum is also VERY strong on me, it throws for a long way and lasts and lasts. Not that I am complaining. It wraps me in a nice fuzzy blanket of spicy warmth that follows me around even when it's cold out. It has definitely satisfied my gourmand curiosity and I'll also probably spring for more rum-based scents in the future because this one worked out so nicely.

    Miss Jessell

    I bought this because I really loved Elizabeth of Bohemia and I didn't buy a full bottle. Miss Jessell has the same kind of feeling as Elizabeth of Bohemia, but a little darker and more autumnal, whereas EoB is more springy. Anyway, I loved Beth's combination of oud and rose in EoB, so when I saw Miss Jessell I knew that it would be a good replacement. I actually ended up liking Miss Jessell better than EoB because it is a little more complex, or deeper. It has a nice rose in there, but it really plays behind the other notes in a way. Like the rose is definitely there, but it isn't the most prominent. I don't think I especially amp rose, but it is usually the forenote in most of the BPAL rose scents I own, so this is definitely a little different. The oud is probably the most prominent note for me, but it isn't overpoweringly oud-y either. All in all, I would say Miss Jessell is very complex yet also balanced. Another scent I think it is somewhat reminiscent of is Theotokos, but that is more incense with rose in the background and Miss Jessell is more woody. All in all, this is a beautiful scent, and I like how darkly feminine it is without being smoky.

    Non-Foody Pumpkin/Jack O'Lantern scent

    My favorite pumpkin scent from the Lab is Fizzy Jack O'Lantern. To my nose it isn't spicy at all, just a little tart and effervescent and sweet. It might be a little more evocative of a jack o'lantern layered with something that smells like a burning candle. It was a LE from Weenies past though.

    SW Thread Questions (Updated 9/26)

    Forum questions: Pumpkin stuff: yes. Flavor and scent. For home scents, I like candles and soy wax tarts (like the Scentsy-type ones that use an electric warmer.) Canned or baked goods: I am okay with that as long is it isn't very dairy-heavy. TP Wants: I am sure I have plenty, but I haven't looked in a while. I will update this when I have time to make a new wishlist. Retailers or e-tailers I don't like: Lime Crime; there are probably others I can't think of right now Coffee and tea preferences?: I like both, I have a Keurig machine so I can only use the regular k-cups, but I like any and all kinds of tea. Cooking/kitchen accessories: I do cook, but I have most of the kitchen junk I need or want. Creative stuff: I am generally pretty lazy when it comes to making crafts myself, but I would love to get something handmade. Culture or country I have special feelings about: I can't think of any but maybe I don't understand the question? Art comissions: I can't think of anything I immediately want, but if you make art and want to draw for me that would be awesome. Freetime: besides tumblr, reading, relaxing, baking, drinking Table top gaming: not into that, sorry. If you want to get me into it then I will consider, I like nerdy stuff. (My husband and I used to have hour-long battles in the old Star Wars CCG so there's your proof.) DVDs or games that I want: I can't think of anything, if I do I will update. Candy from outside the US: I always like trying new things like this! Meme/fandom: Hm, I don't know. Facebook: I think it is facebook.com/killersandliars but I am not sure. My witch can probably use my name and city to find me there anyway if she needs to, right? RCCC: no, but Witch, if you are going to this have fun! Contact: Whatever you are comfortable with is great with me! Puzzles and treasure hunts: not sure this is something that I am particularly into but it could be fun. Music: physical or digital is good! Problem/Annoyance: n/a Good luck trinket: any and all good luck is greatly appreciated! Superstitions: not really, no. Vegetarian/vegan: n/a I'll try just about anything as long as it doesn't have too much dairy in it. Other fall scents: I love apple or anything autumnal, basically. Fabric aversions: nope, none that I can think of. My husband does but he won't be handling the stuff you send me. Christmas/yule: I love the winter holidays almost as much as I love the autumn ones. We have a regular tree that has a lot of disney ornaments on it but we also have a “spooky” tree that has a lot of semi-spooky yet still Christmas-y ornaments on it. Hello Kitty: I like cute stuff in general, but I am okay with Hello Kitty in small/subtle ways (like nothing really all over pink and flowers, but the more “grown up” Hello Kitty stuff does still appeal to me.) If I had a free week to study, I'd probably just choose an author and read as many of their books as I could. Poetry: I do enjoy poetry, which is probably good since I'm a lit major. I really like the Romantics, which I know is lame, but whatever. Especially Coleridge and Shelley. But I like a lot of other stuff too. Denise Levertov is one of my favorite poets as well, female poets appeal to me in general. Something related to a favorite Disney character: if that character is Oswald or Donald Duck or Uncle Scrooge, then yes. Kawaii stationery: I love kawaii stationery. I collected it for many years, actually. I don't write many letters anymore, but I like it nonetheless. If you want to send me letters on kawaii paper I would be so stoked. But I like creepy stuff too. Something specific I would like to receive: I really, truly don't want my Witch to feel obligated for any specific thing. If you do need something specific, I'll say one of those really cute Halloween cards. I've never gotten a Halloween card in my life! Tarot cards, etc: I am fine with receiving cards or having my cards read. Glitter: YES. I love glitter. Mainly in small does is makeup, but glitter attached to anything is cool in my book. Time period that describes my style/aesthetic: 90's goth and punk meets 50s and 60s femininity? At least for dress. As for décor, it's very eclectic with some modern elements and some kinda spooky ones. Types of books: I like e-books (I have a kindle) and physical books. House of Gloi custom bottle: black tea top note, rose mid note, fig base note Halloween animal or character: I like ravens and bats, and kitties of course too. And spooky skeletons. Indie/e-tailer makeup: I don't care as much for nail polish anymore, but I do like indie loose eyeshadows and blushes. There are a few indie lipstick brands that I want to try too. I have the most experience with Fyrinnae loose shadows, I like their bright colors and glittery textures. I like cool or warm neutrals, especially taupe, but also greens, teals, golds, and berries for eyeshadows. For blushes, I like literally everything. Same with lip colors, I'm more drawn to nudes and reds but I love corals and purples as well, and I like experimenting with “weird”. Basically if I got a package of shimmery eyeshadows and bold lipsticks I'd be over the freaking moon. Profanity and off color humor: raunchy is fine, cursing is fine, but I don't like purposefully offensive stuff. Hair sticks: my hair is probably too short. Larping: no Chocolate covered scorpions and bacon powder: no thank you. Halloween plushie: yes, as long as he or she isn't too big. Stuff from Japan: Oswald the Lucky Rabbit things. All the things. Every one of those. Or anything kawaii Disney. GC scents I like but never buy: Drink Me, Tweedledum, Dragon's Heart, La Petite Mort, The Raven, Sea Foams Milk, Whip, Santa Muerte, probably others I can't think of right now. Lush: I love basically anything from Lush. T-shirts: I don't really wear them. Newest 9/13: Thinkgeek: I have browsed there lightly, but I am sure they do have tons if stuff I'd be tickled to get. My favorite geeky things are old literature, Game of Thrones/ASoIaf, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the film They Live, Star Wars (some stuff, kinda picky). Things I do not really care for are Star Trek (no offense if you like it, I never got into it), Firefly (same reason), Doctor Who, Supernatural, BBC Sherlock, and Big Bang Theory. Paintbox Soapworks: I wouldn't mind trying something from there, but I haven't tried any of their stuff yet. For bath and body e-tailers I do like Haus of Gloi (mainly their pumpkin butter, bubbling scrub, whipped soap, and their light lotion.) Showing up at my house: That could be cool if we talked about it first, but meeting in public for coffee or something would be way better. I want so badly for there to be other BPALers in my area, but everything's so spread out here I doubt they'd be close. Ravelry: I do have an account, but I haven't been active. I learned to crochet earlier this year, but I don't do it enough. Sock Dreams: VERY YAY. Knitted or crochet items: I'd be okay with them, especially longish scarves or fingerless gloves. I like very soft fibers, and just about any color works for me. I've been getting into more greens and pumpkin colors and golden yellows and teal and blue the past little while, so anything in that family would rock. Amazon wishlist: it is very up-to-date, actually! http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/18IAQQE0FZ2TG/ref=topnav_lists_2 Caramels: due to the whole lactose intolerance thing I probably would get sick if I ate these. Incense: I would love that! Spices: I couldn't say that there's anything I need in particular, but if you think it is cool then I would probably enjoy it. Handmade stationery or a quill pen: I think a fountain pen would be neat, but not necessarily a quill pen. Handmade stationery would also be very cool, I'd like to see that! Heat tolerance: I like things medium-spicy, not very very hot but not barely any heat at all either. Newest 9/24 Halloween candy: there's none that I am over-the-top fond of, but I like most chocolate and stuff along those lines. Cozy footwear: I am from the south and it seems like we prefer to go barefoot indoors all the time, even when it's cold, so this would not be well-utilized by me. What do I look forward to each fall? Change of seasons, cooler weather, back-to-school, Halloween, BPAL Halloweenies, snuggling up inside watching movies, etc. The usual stuff. Gadgets: My phone (HTC One M7, seriously a great smartphone if you're looking for one) has a case, as does my Kindle. I have some stickers on the lid of my MacBook, so I would accessorize it more. I'd love a BPAL sticker, or they had some new "old school tattoo"-style Nightmare Before Christmas stickers at Hot Topic, of which I wanted the Oogie Boogie. Beauty accessories: I am pretty stocked up, but I could use new Beauty Blender-like sponges. Everyone makes a dupe now, and the dupes are usually just as good. One big box vs. several small ones: I like the idea of both, especially if the big box contains something REALLY special that did take a while to procure. Small boxes are fun because it shows that my Witch is thinking about me. Both are good. If you're going the one box route, I'd like to know to not be expecting little stuff in the meantime though. Halloween PJs: I would love some soft, stretchy Halloween-y PJ pants, probably in 2x just so they're comfy. I usually don't even sleep in pants, so they'd just be for wearing around. M&Ms: I like almond and peanut butter M&Ms, but I am not like coocoo bananas about them or anything. Wax melts: I LOVE THEM. Hence why I have a whole cabinet full. I really don't need any more, unless you can find some that are evocative of my favorite BPALs. Spotify: not really interested. Lillith update: the cake one, obviously, and there was one other that I thought sounded good, but I'll have to look it up. If you need to know for certain and soon I can do that and let you know. Sugar cube skulls: those are hella cute, but I wouldn't use them. Skin care: my skin is a mess. I don't even want to talk about it. Salem: a postcard or a keychain or something cute would definitely be awesome. LisaNut's etsy: the upcycled floral scarf is very cute! Knit spiders: yes. Those blue Tarantulas are my favorite. Pillows: I already have more than I need. :X Unless it has a cool literary quote or has to do with Disneyland I'd say I don't need it. Bags: I am a bag lover, so I already have a ton. I do like those reusable plastic-y grocery bags, I could always use another one or two to keep in my car at all times. Special events: not right now. School starts back in a few days, but that's not special. Scents: again, I'd have to look. NYCC: probably some things, yes! Cons always get cool exclusives so if you need me to look, let me know. Tokyo Game Show: IDK what this is, but it sounds kinda cool. Couples' rings or Halloween jewelry: I love Haunted Mansion jewelry, so of course any of that. Not so much the couples' rings. In general I love Halloween jewelry and accessories. Booze: we collect tiki mugs (vintage and modern.) We have about all the bar ware we need, but we could probably use more shakers. Bar books dealing with tropical/tiki drinks are always well-loved here as well. We have a bar in our dining room, we mainly drink tiki-ish or rum-based drinks both at home and when we're out. Flavored sugar cubes: this could be nice, esp. the rosewater ones. I'm assuming you use them in tea? Jamberry: these are very cool, I'd love some! Book: I buy so many books for myself, it is hard for me to think of ones I want. Here are the ones on my Amazon list as of right now: http://www.amazon.com/dp/1567310656/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=18IAQQE0FZ2TG&coliid=I2Q4LRVXOFOD03; http://www.amazon.com/dp/039916040X/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=18IAQQE0FZ2TG&coliid=I2J776BTNUAIOV; http://www.amazon.com/dp/1616551097/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=18IAQQE0FZ2TG&coliid=I2LL4G2HDA8QAN; http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003E7EXBI/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=3T7FNV8Y8N94E&coliid=I8XSCGCME3YIB; and these are ebooks I want for my Kindle, but I'd like to have them in paper form as well: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JX1GLUA/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=ULXBLU6HDK6L&coliid=ILKMXDSZQ735J; http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009177PRE/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=ULXBLU6HDK6L&coliid=I2XUG7DZJ62ADP; http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006IEFVG0/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=ULXBLU6HDK6L&coliid=I2SBWSYHRB7VJ9; http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009Y3ON6G/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=ULXBLU6HDK6L&coliid=I11ZLW7XGD1SXO; http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009LRWUFQ/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=ULXBLU6HDK6L&coliid=I1M86FJ3PO36M7; http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009NQZRIM/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=ULXBLU6HDK6L&coliid=I1Z9QUMF0V7444; http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002N83HAW/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=ULXBLU6HDK6L&coliid=I1U2Q6OPC4GA5S New 9/26: Updated answer to the NYCC question re: BPAL's con exclusives: Yes, I highly want some of the green apple hair gloss. Under $25 Birchbox: https://www.birchbox.com/shop/featured/25-and-under-1/royal-rose-simple-syrup (basically any of these) https://www.birchbox.com/shop/featured/25-and-under-1/soap-paper-factory-lip-butter (Blood Orange) https://www.birchbox.com/shop/featured/25-and-under-1/toykomilk-bon-bon-lip-balm (Rose Water) https://www.birchbox.com/shop/featured/25-and-under-1/besame-cosmetics-crimson-cream-rouge https://www.birchbox.com/shop/featured/25-and-under-1/besame-cosmetics-classic-color-lipstick (any color, but especially Besame Red or Portrait Pink.) Fatherhood update: nothing really caught my eye, sorry Street art: I have no opinion on this whatsoever. Single note: Rose, obviously. There's no contest. New 10/1 NYCC BPAL exclusives: I think I mentioned even a few drops of the green apple hair gloss would excite me. Weenies: I am going to buy Samhain and Pumpkin I for myself this weekend or early next week, then if I can sell the other bottles I have on the forum I'll buy a couple more before Yules hit. I know The Witch-Bride is my next most-wanted and based on the notes I know I need a full bottle, followed by All Saints, Visions of Autumn IV, decants of Fog Machine Juice and Pile of Fallen Leaves, Pumpkin III, and a decant of Pumpkin V. Caffeine? I love it. I drink coffee (mainly Trader Joe's K-Cups these days, but I like the Starbucks Veranda Blend K-Cups as well.) MAC and ELF makeup: I am not a Rocky Horror fan, so none of that really appeals to me. I haven't been excited about MAC in many years. I do like ELF stuff though, and I like Disney, so Witch, you know I would be all about that. Custom chocolate bar: since the company is based in the UK I doubt it is worth having one shipped here. Turkish delight and flower-flavored candy: I used to be obsessed with these little violet mints from Ferrero or something, they were in a little silver Tic-Tac type case. Anyway, I liked those, and I guess that could be good with dark chocolate. I'd try rose chocolate too. IDK about Turkish Delight though, it makes me think of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe and kidnapping unsuspecting children. I've never tried it. :X

    SW Fall 2014 blog

    Hello, if you are reading this, Witch! The this message will be especially for you. Today is Friday, Sept. 12th, so you may have already started sneaking around and finding out things about me, which is very exciting for me. Maybe not so much for you? On Monday, September 15th, I will be leaving California for eight entire days, but I will be available via email and I should be able to load the forum on my phone. After that, though, I'll basically be back to my regular old lazy bum always on the internet ways by the 23rd. I'm trying to distance myself from Facebook, but if you want to get to know me a little better definitely try my tumblrs (werewolf--barmitzvah is my main one and marshmallow-fashion is my fashion blog.) I'm going to try to catch up with the questions from the SW post before Monday.

    Pick a scent for a Disney Villian!

    I think maybe the Evil Queen might smell like Apple of Sodom, since it seems a lot more sinister and red to me than Poisoned Apple. Egle might be good for Ursula, maybe? Oh, and Hook would smell like Mary Read in my head. Also, totally OT, but Pinocchio would totally smell like Rocking-Horse-Fly, right? I saw the bottles on tumblr, and I think they were very cool. I wish something like that would come to fruition, especially in crystal. I'd splurge for Maleficent or Evil Queen for sure.

    Looking for a BPAL that Resembles a Favorite Perfume

    I haven't smelled it, but maybe Tamora, Morgause, Midnight on the Midway (good luck), or Butterflies, Flowers and Jewels Attending? Thank you! Searching notes I came up with a couple of options, but neither of those are on this list, so this is definitely quite helpful.

    Looking for a BPAL that Resembles a Favorite Perfume

    I have tried the board search and searching this topic and I can't seem to find anything. If this has been asked a thousand times, I do apologize. Anyway, my cousin has recently fallen in love with a rollerball of Lady Gaga's Fame perfume she got at Target. The scent descriptions are kind of weird and vague, especially since it says that the fragrance doesn't play by the typical scent pyramid rules we're all accustomed to. This is the description from sephora.com: "This black fluid exudes a lustful, floral, fruity essence for fabulous little monsters. Enriched with tears of belladonna, a black veil of incense, and pulverized apricot, this fragrance may cause illicit fits of extravagance, unrivalled rushes of adoration, and prolonged moments of ecstasy and rapture.Notes:Belladonna, Incense, Apricot, Honey Drops, Tiger Orchidea, Jasmin Sambac.Style:Empowering. Mysterious. Fabulous." I assume that belladonna tears smell just like belladonna itself, but who knows? If anyone has smelled this and can think of a close equivalent in BPAL's range, I would be overjoyed. I can think of a few floral-incense blends that I own, but they all lack the fruit.

    Cherokee Rose Single Note

    My stellar, awesome cousin picked this up for me at Dragon*Con (while she got some for herself too!), and I honestly couldn't be happier with it. I only regret that I didn't get two. I too got this because of my Native American heritage, and that of my husband. But I also freaking love rose scents, because Beth can do no wrong when it comes to roses. I get something pretty different than many of the other reviews though, because on me it is mostly a very wild rosey-type smell. I get a hint of greery and a hint of something else that's a bit herbaceous, but I certainly don't get any lemon. At first, while it's still wet, the rose is a tad bit soapy, but that settles down into the background a bit as the scent dries. On drydown, it is purely wild rose, like a primrose maybe. It isn't that full-bodied, velvet petaled pure rose of Peacock Queen. Cherokee Rose seems very pale color-wise by comparison. The only BPAL oil that I have that is somewhat similar to this, though really pretty different, is Moon Rose. While it does smell mostly like roses, it is definitely not a typical rose smell. I don't really know what sets it apart, but it isn't just a rose single note. It's the palest kiss of rose with a dash of leaves and stems and *something else* that I can't quite put my finger on. All in all, it is a complete winner.

    Tanuki No Orai

    Very nicely fruity and fresh. It isn't overly foody or too sweet, it is just a nicely balanced peach with a touch of mango. It is very light ant totally appropriate for spring and summer. It doesn't have a lot of throw, but it has reasonable lasting power on me.
  13. killersandliars


    I love this! It is very vanilla, sweet, a little furity, and totally cakey. It smells like the most moist, luscious birthday cupcake, which is right on the money with the description. It wears really nicely on me, and has a decent throw. For comparison, it is much more straight up cake than something like Eat Me.

    Leather Phoenix

    My review is for the anniversary version. I'm surprised that some of the other reviews say there's no patchoulli and leather, because on me that's almost all it is. I get a very strong patchoulli mixed with leather, matcha, and some dirt. It is very dark, dirty, sexy, and sinister. For me, it is exactly what I was expecting from it. I don't wear it often, though, because it is a little heavy for every day and it has a ton of throw. It is a really nice oil, and I know it is going to age really well. A+, just because it is unique and interesting.

    Pink Snowballs

    I had Snow White first, so of course I associate this scent with the former. However, it is unique enough to justify owning both perfumes. It starts out uber-creamy on me, almost exactly like Snow White, but then the rose starts to come out more and it becomes a good mix of that vanilla-coconut scent from Snow White with a pretty, soft rose. Pink Snowballs is like Snow White's softer, more subtle sister.
