    It Was Folly to Grieve, or to Think

    I'll come back and do a proper review of this one from the bottle and wet, but after 2 hours on my wrist this has settled into a gorgeous, soft comforting floral scent. It's like getting a hug from your favorite proper auntie that always smells nice.

    Enraged Groundhog Musk

    Enraged Groundhog Musk In the bottle: Chocolate...but not a yummy chocolate. A nauseating, overwhelming, unsweetened chocolate scent. If you have ever been around unrefined cocoa butter, you know the smell. Wet: Still gross chocolate. Keeping my hand/wrist as far away from me as possible for now. 15-30 minutes in....... OMG!! OMG, OMG, OMG!!! Chocolate is gone. On me, there was absolutely no foody type lingering odor. The cinnamon was in the background, cardamom was front and center, on a base of silky vanilla...but again, not food scent at all. It smelled like a really expensive, really well blended perfume. On me, this turned into an incredibly spicy, sexy scent. I immediately made two of my coworkers try it. One had exactly the same reaction and almost same ending scent as I did. My other coworker offered to buy it from me on the spot. Then we smelled her wrist. Completely different scent on her!! Still spicy but went deeper and richer on her. I went to work at my part time job and had 4, count them, FOUR people tell me I smelled amazing. That has never happened to me before.

    EPIC BPAL Spreadsheet Thread

    Ravyn, I use Gmail exclusively, but I only have a few google docs for personal use so I'm not that familiar with them. Is this something I can sync so that it updates automatically, or will it have to be physically updated by someone periodically? I'm trying to decide which spreadsheet to download. All the different choices are a tad bit overwhelming and the reading I'm doing isn't really helping that much. (believe me, it's me, not you guys! You guys are great!)

    Scent Recs based on your PERSONALITY!

    Ohhh...this sounds like fun! I'd like to get some ideas for myself, and then once I'm more familiar with everything, give out recommendations as well. Let's see..... I'm in my late 30s but regularly get guessed much, much younger. I'm bi-racial, olive toned skin, long black curly hair. I'm a pisces, love to read (usually 60 books or more a year), make soaps, pretty much any craft. Looove hiking and being in the mountains and used to kayak regularly. Right now my passion is gardening, especially herbs. Child free by choice. I work in emergency services...hmmmmm....what else? I am incredibly blunt, sometimes to the point of rudeness, though I usually don't mean to be. I curse. A lot. I am usually pretty introverted, by choice, because I am not shy. I have a very dark sense of humor. I am also very sensitive, though few people will ever see that side of me. I don't have a lot of friends, but the ones I do are friends for life and closer to me than family. Is that enough information to go on? What do you guys think would suit me?

    CCNow Questions & Problems

    Well, I actually have enough in the bank to cover it, so I wouldn't mind if they corrected it. But it appears I was charged twice, then that total amount was actually credited back to me. So I haven't been charged at all. Strange..

    CCNow Questions & Problems

    I cross posted in the FAQ Forum, under the thread marked CC problems, etc (I think that was what it was called). It seems to be no reason for panic just yet, just some weird thing that the company does when they send out your order to BPAL. Or that's what I'm getting from it anyway.

    Ginger scents & the different types of ginger notes

    Does anyone remember Ginger Milk from the Thymes line? They discontinued it and replaced it with Wild Ginger. I absolutely loooved Ginger Milk. It was ginger and spicy and warm, but sexy, not at all bakery. I'm probably going to have to try all of BPAL's ginger scents now.

    CCNow Questions & Problems

    I had posted this in another forum, but someone directed me to ask here. I did some searching, and found similar topics, but not exactly my situation. I checked my bank account and see that the amount of my order was deducted yesterday and today. Then I see a pending credit in the amount of both charges added together. When I check my CC order status it says shipped. But the charges/credits cancel each other out, so no money has actually been paid. Has anyone seen this before?

    CCNow Questions & Problems

    Lesson learned, I think. I had used them once before, last year, and didn't have any problems. Sigh. I really hope this doesn't delay my order in any way.

    CCNow Questions & Problems

    I'm not sure if I am posting this in the right place or not, but thought I would see if this has happened to anyone before. I used the CC checkout when I placed my order on November 5. My bank is showing a pending charge yesterday and today both in the amounts of my purchase, then a pending credit for the total that will be posted tomorrow. *scratching head* Not sure what that is about. I think I will keep an eye on it and see if it resolves itself, otherwise I may email BPAL in the morning.
