    On base notes, heart notes, top notes

    In my opinion, the base and middle notes are easier to match up. Regular perfume top notes are more prominent to me - they stand out more sharply as the scent evaporates. BPAL oils are heavier, more blended, without the same "blast" of higher notes. In other words, more similar to regular perfume that's had time to settle on your skin. Truthfully, though, there are very few BPALs I've tried that smell like department store fragrances. Except for Venom! It smells almost like a dupe of Poison!

    Lolita Lempicka = which bpal?

    Neo-Tokyo!!! It's delicate and sweet like the Lolita Lempicka Eau de Toilette. Neo-Tokyo's notes are cherry blossom, ozone and fruit. This is a very nice blend - I highly recommend it for anyone who likes Lolita Lempicka. I've tried some others hoping for a match, but the anise BPAL uses is different. BPAL licorice is black, pungent, herbal. Lolita Lempicka uses licorice flower, which is a sweeter, more floral, note.
  3. I'm also curious about Sudha Segara because of its milkiness/creaminess. Does anyone know what the secret "milk" ingredient is in Alice? Could it be a type of vanilla? I'd love to order a single note of it to layer with other blends!

    If I like Monyette...

    I LOVE Monyette too, but I haven't run across any BPAL that smells like it. But I'd say Alice has a similar feel, the same balance of cream, floral, and spice. Next I'd suggest Pele, which is pure tropical flowers. I did not find Sacred Whore or Le Serpent Qui Danse to be very similar at all (even with the gardenia). I find Monyette to be strongly tropical vanilla and gardenia, very creamy and almost coconutty. That might help others to make some more suggestions.

    Allergy Questions, Allergies and other reactions to oils

    Sacred Whore of Babylon burns my skin. I'm thinking it's some kind of pepper? This is the only oil of 40 I've tried (including cinnamon blends) that does this.
  6. I think Harlot also goes really well with Potion. They have the same "Big Red" cinnamon note. Dana O'Shee and Snowcake - I'm sure this one's been mentioned already! They smell identical to me. Can anyone recommend something that goes with Jungle or Flowertub? Those two scents are awesome, creamy sweet green florals.

    Where is this scent?

    I'm new to the BPAL scents, but this sounds like the imp of Dragon's Milk I tried yesterday.
