    I LOVE Rogue. For some reason it reminds me of backstage - either ballet shoes or instrument cases, so it doesn't strike me as masculine. It's my first leather scent, and I'm hooked. And layered with Morocco... on me, sublime.

    Job Interview Recommendations

    I agree with this. I once had a coworker tell me I smelled like pine sol when I wore something with vetiver in it. Her eyes were watering and everything ... she even said she didn't understand why people felt it necessary to smell like anything other than their own skin and even Tide laundry detergent was offensive. You just never know.

    What BPAL would this fictional character wear?

    Ha! ...I agree. He would just smell like leather, scotch and the barest hint of expensive women's perfume.

    ...anyway, I'll put TKO on my list. I got a bottle of TKO massage oil today and it's amazing. The French Kiss is definitely comparable. I get a lingering sugary smell on my skin when I use TKO, too, which is nice. I'm glad you recommended it!

    I know! The play-doh wasn't too surprising, considering "play-doh" has its own thread here. But the RAID... And I tried the imp a few times, thinking "maybe it was allergies!" or "maybe it was hormones!" or "maybe I ate something weird!" but no. So far, the stats are stacking up against Bread and Butterfly. I do have to say, though, that Alice was a total win.

    Yeah! And I like French Kiss and Waving Not Drowning, so I thought "lavender is my friend!" and went in for a full bottle of Oneiroi, which is mostly lavender, and it knocked my socks off. And it fades on my skin, but is still heavily medicinal. ...maybe I'm actually smelling something *else* in Oneiroi; I'm only assuming Lavender is the main note. ...anyway, I'll put TKO on my list.

    You're right. I got my samples of White Rabbit and B&B. White Rabbit is nice, but there's about 20 minutes of play-doh, then it becomes nearly undetectable except for faint wisps. B&B... smells like Raid (the bug spray) on my skin. SO SAD! So I'm still searching. And so far, Molly Grue is the best match for me.

    Totally agree about the Tonka in BPAL. It appears in most of my favorite scents, and those are primarily sweet scents (vanilla+amber+tonka is the holy trinity of base notes for me). I've noticed with Lush stuff that lavender appears frequently, but seems to be a fugitive note. Like, you almost smell it, and you smell it in the product at the store, but as soon as you drop it in water it disappears quickly. Which is good because lavender also goes medicinal on me. I had been avoiding TKO for that reason, but I might reconsider.... a lavender vanilla marshmallow sounds kind of delicious!

    The Soft Touch was my favorite body butter. I hoarded a couple bars when they said they were discontinuing, but one of the appeals of Lush is the no-preservatives. It also means my last bar of TST is past its expiration date, and aging quickly. Sigh. (it *does* go on cold!) Thanks for the Twilight BB recs. I'll add those to the list. And Ceridwen's Cauldron - is some serious magic. I think the essential oils are only part of the CC equation - the rest of it is all hot water loaded with diffusing cocoa butter and oats and some kind of cooking spices (maybe?) and it's like soaking in spicy, milky tea. Molly Grue is close; I was considering The White Rabbit to see if that's closer, or maybe Bread and Butterfly.

    THIS! I must find! Agreed! It smells like a dreamsicle! Lush sez: "Full of nourishing oils like lavender and neroli, this body butter especially for hands has no end of conditioning capability. From your digits to your elbows, wherever there's a rough patch, let vanilla and mango save the day and delicately smooth the way for some soft touching. Butters and beeswax and mango, oh my! The spicy-sweet complexity will have you smelling yourself all day (in a good way)."

    Looking for a BPAL that Resembles a Favorite Perfume

    Hermia and Chanel Chance = yes, exactly! Hermia is stronger and richer though. That may be the amber. It could also be that I'm slathering the oil on.

    I am DISO an oil the smells like LUSH's new Grass Shower Gel. I bought a bottle of BPAL's Squirting Cucumber but it just smells like BBW's Cumbermelon. No grass on me. Anyone else know of an oil that is close to Grass Shower Gel? Thanks! I haven't sniffed Squirting Cucumber, so I don't know. But I got some Troll in a random imp's ear the other day and it smelled almost exactly like Grass shower gel to me. Maybe a little darker, but only a little.

    LUSH is my gateway drug; I'm new to BPAL. Anyone have good matches for the Twilight bath bomb? How about Ceridwen's Cauldron? Therapy massage bar? How about The Soft Touch?
