    I have a great time with BPAL because I love the excitement of trying new scents and I also love wearing my favorites. Other things that give me pleasure: friends, tea, cats, reading, writing, and games. Learning new skills is one of the most fun things in life.

    The Queen's Croquet Ground

    A fresh spring rose that is brightening my room and making it feel like April flowers!

    L’Eau de la Passion Bath Oil

    I adore this. I had my first bath with it tonight, and it filled the room with carnation and neroli, with an undercurrent of honey. Definitely floral with the freshness of neroli, and luckily the carnation stays fresh, too. (I always want to love carnation, but sometimes it doesn't love me back.) This is right up there with my favorite BPTP bath oils of all time.

    Großvater Tanz

    Großvater Tanz didn't smell good in the bottle, but since I was at Will Call at knows perfume, I tried everything on anyway. A few minutes later, I caught a miraculous, familiar scent from Saturday mornings as a kid, getting up early to watch cartoons and eat sugar-coated cereal. My favorite cereal was sweet, with a fruity pop, and smoothed by rich milk. So there I am at Will Call, sniffing the side of my hand, completely intrigued by the suggestion of Froot Loops but not knowing which bottle had produced it. After accidentally enabling about five other people--"Smell this! Which one is it?!" "I don't know, but tell me when you find out!"--I figured it out. Totally awesome and I can't wait to get a bottle of this!

    Mother Ginger

    MOTHER GINGER From beneath her skirts emerge eight gingerbread children: gingerbread, French vanilla, sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and marshmallow cream. Mother Ginger has an airy freshness and openness to it. I sometimes find the "baked goods" type of ginger scents a little heavy due to the butter, the batter, the other spices... This is unlike those, being smooth and light; in fact, an uplifting ginger. So good!

    The Forest Reverie

    I rubbed a little Forest Reverie in the crook of my elbow, and before you could say "Sweet Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn," I felt my phantom testicles descending. If you want to smell like a boy in a really, really good way, here are the steps: 1. Apply The Forest Reverie 2. That's it! You're done!

    Tiki Princess

    To me, Tiki Princess is a kissin' cousin of Snow White.

    Enraged Groundhog Musk

    Enraged Groundhog Musk was a keeper way-back-when because I liked the spicy, almost-cinnamon smell, but...tried it again yesterday, and my skin reacted with red welts. Cinnamon-type scents have done that before (Alone, I'm looking at you). I love how they smell but they're locket-only for me.
  8. #356 Amber and chocolate.

    Giant Squid

    Giant Squid surprised me. Without looking at the bottle, I poured a little on the back of my hand. Ooh! Lightly spiced apple juice...or apples richly cooking down to sauce... That's when I checked the label. Squid? No apple in the notes--no fruit, even? What up, nose? Whatever it's made of, whatever marine creature inspired it--this bottle is mine, all mine, so keep your tentacles to yourself.
  10. The Wrestler Onogawa Kisaburo Blowing Smoke at a One-Eyed Monster really resonates with me. I love the woodsy/balsamic backdrop sweetened up by white honey and the ticklishness of the pepper. On me, its throw is light, a bit heady, but still very grounded.
  11. Smoky, smoky, smoky...as though vetiver had been wrapped in a moist plantain leaf and suspended in sweet smoke to dry.

    Helios

    Helios is like being French-kissed under the orange glow of a setting sun. You want to let your eyes close but the light is too beautiful.

    Fire for Thy Stepmother's Daughters

    Well, now. Based on the notes listed, I wouldn't have gone for Fire for Thy Stepmother's Daughters. Don't know why I ordered it. I guess I liked the name. But...what exceptionally good luck! There's a hint of glowing woodfire, but there's more of fruit than flame in this blend. Perhaps others are right when they say lotus or dragonsblood, I don't know. I do know that it starts with sweetness like the nectar of flowers or ripe fruit, is lightly polished by something minty (perhaps spearmint), and just gets better the longer I wear it. Thank you for a wonderful new scent, Beth.

    Femme Fatale Scents

    Wanda gives me the film noir vibe like nothing else. Mata Hari sounds like it's worth a try for you, although it didn't work on me.

    Lulu

    Lulu started out brash, and I suspected rose, which can sometimes be soapy on me. In a short time (about ten minutes), the blend mellowed into sweet white florals gently brushed by bergamot's uplifting citrus fruit. Lulu caught me all unsuspecting and converted me!
