    Cherry Red

    Smells just like the way that color makes me feel. It's a playful, bold, happy scent, sweet and very cherry. There's a tinge of marzipan, a twist of musk, and a comforting sweetness. I'm judicious with my bottle purchases but this definitely qualifies. It's so cheery!

    This Is Halloween 2022 answers

    I just have to start this ....Cellar Door just posted their Halloween goodies - I love their scents, soaps and candles - which of these might you fancy? Maybe the black soap? If you'd like handmade knit items, are you good with soft wools or do you prefer acrylic only? I've found I can wear alpaca wool, but otherwise prefer plant and synthetic fibers. Are there any items you'd love for fall/halloweenie? (Ie mittens, hat, fingerless mitts, cowl, legwarmers) Socks would be nice. Anyone fancying the new Paintbox Soapworks or Witch Baby Soap Halloween launches? Nothing's really catching my eye. Would you be interested in an adult Halloween coloring book? I recently backed on kickstarter for one by a local gothic art market near me and it's due in during the swap period. Sure. What are some OCYL brands you've been wanting to dabble in? Elorea, CB I Hate Perfume, Kerosene, Etat Libre d'Orange. I am working on making bath bombs. Would you be willing to try my creations? How about wax tarts? What type of scents do you favor? If they're something that could be used in the shower, sure! For these I like citrus scents. What kinds of home smell good things do you like? (I.e. incense, candles, wax melts, felt scent balls, essential oils, linen spray) Essential oils by themselves or in felt scent balls. My question for the fellow pumpkins would you like anything from the bath and bodyworks Halloween line? 🤔 Not for me, thanks. Do you have any interest in spooky squishmallows? Nope. And would you enjoy spooky stationary? A small notepad or post-its would be welcome. I know a lot of us are witchy and have deeply held beliefs about the materials we use as part of our practice. If you're one of those individuals, are there certain herbs, crystals, etc that you do not want to receive? Just keep it ethical. If in doubt, feel free to reach out or have a Nacho Witch ask me. When you have a distinct preference for one holiday over another, What are some cross over items that actually work for both? Seasonal fruits, sweets. One question (that is actually several questions) -- Local honey? Infused/flavored honey? Local infused/flavored honey with Southwest notes (jalapeno, other pepper, mesquite, acacia) I'd be into trying any of these. Any spooky/weenie DVD's you're missing and would like in your collection? I have a DVD drive on my computer and no collection! If there's something you think I'd like, sure. I'm into weenie more than spooky. Dang (or good!), another serious question -- Shampoo and/or conditioner bars and if so, for what type of hair (dry, fine, oily, curly, normal)? I've never tried them - I'd be game for a conditioner bar. My hair is dry, thick, coarse and curly. I just got the email that the Ectogasm Halloween Collection is live. Does anything interest you? https://www.ectogasm.net/collections/halloween The socks look fun. On a scale from Paprika Is a Heatwave to Let Me Eat a Peck of Pickled Ghost Chiles, how spicy is too spicy, and how spicy is just right? Ghost peppers are too hot for me, but I do like it pretty spicy. Bird's eye, Scotch bonnet or habanero chilis are just right. I make lightweight hairfalls- would you be interested in some? Either to incorporate into a costume or just for your own year-round use? If so, name your colors and preferred length, and if you have any fiber allergies you want me to take note of! Not for me, thanks. If I were to make you a set of arm warmers/ fingerless mitts, what color(s) & style would you like? Long and and black or soft colors. Sold and stripes both appeal to me and I love cashmeres! Homemade canned and baked and concocted goodies? Any aversions? If I could make you some of my fudge, what would you prefer? No aversion to homemade treats! As far as fudge goes, I like it on the lighter side - fruit and/or nut flavors are good to me. Are you open to trying different indie perfume houses if I find a scent that I think you'd enjoy? Definitely! I love making stickers!! If I could design you some stickers, what would you love to have? It could be halloween themed or not! My art style is a bit simplistic, cartoony, and cutesy, I usually draw fairies but last year I did a swap on reddit and made someone a bunch of halloween dog stickers lol. (Sidenote: They probably won't be waterproof, but they're glossy vinyl!) Big brown tabby cats, a flying piano, monarch butterfly. I've got a bunch of small round labels perfect for bpal 5ml label lid art! Name your top 5-10 scents that you'd love to have lid art made for! Just as a fun little extra in your package if desired (Could also work for other companies with lids just like the BPAL bottles) Pognophobia, Insupportable Misery, Anthelion, Luperci, Enkhespalos. I am going to Dragon Con for the first time! Which of these BPALs do you want? Peach Absinthe sounds interesting! Would you be interested in a bag like we sell in our etsy shop? https://twinklentwilight.etsy.com - if so, but you don't see fabric you like maybe link to some photos of fabric you like? - we can do small box bags or pencil / cosmetic / notions type bags too. or with a drawstring on top instead of a zipper. - you don't HAVE to use them just for knitting/crochet, you can use them for cross stitch or even not as project bags. Sure, I like a lot of the fabrics with cats. If you are a yarnie, are you interested in a ceramic yarn bowl? I have an extra Harry Potter (I know, I know) one from Lennymud that I bought before the whole JKR debacle and it didn't profit her in any form anyway. I believe it's Gryffindor themed. I'm not a yarnie. If you are a yarnie, I'd love to gift some yarn from my stash so give me an idea of colors / weight / material / yardage you'd like. Not a yarnie. Are you interested in trying some of our "thunder butter"? It's like tiger balm or icy hot, but with herbs, beeswax, cayenne or ghost pepper, menthol, wintergreen. cbd version or no? Sure, without cbd. I need to inventory our canned goods but do you like things like peach jam, cardamom plum jam, peach butter, plum butter, pickles, applesauce with nothing added, applesauce with red hots, dried apples or pears, bread and butter pickles, dill pickles, blackberry jam, huckleberry jam, candied jalapenos? All the jams sound amazing. Any interest in things from our garden like dried mint, catnip, lavender, rose petals, dill weed or dill seeds, sage, rue, mugwort, rosemary? Rose petals, yes. How about alcoholic things like rose petal liqueur, lavender vanilla bean liqueur, various flavors of mead (chocolate orange, strawberry mango, whatever my son is making)? In small amounts - I don't drink, but would find culinary uses for these occasionally. Rose petal liqueur sounds especially nice to me. Pumpkin bread or zucchini bread? How about blueberry zucchini bread with a lemon glaze? Mmm, pumpkin bread. I make specialty simple syrups. You can use them in teas or cocktails (and desserts). How do you feel about a Hibiscus simple syrup? I use 2 ounce bottles for these so its just a fun amount. That sounds delicious! Tea: I have a morning coffee habit, so don't have any more caffeine-space for tea. But herbal tisanes are welcome. I prefer bagged. Tights: Sure, warm ones will help with Wisconsin winters. Size L. Would you like to receive a 2D collage art piece? What overall vibe would you be into? (spooky, autumnal, whimsical, eerie, lovely, occult, bizarre, smutty etc.?) Maybe, if you felt you could do something that speaks to me. Lovely, whimsical, autumnal, bizarre are all possibilities. - Do you like rocks/gemstone jewelry? Prefer polished/smooth rocks or raw/rough? Any favorite stones, rocks, colors that you'd like? I rarely wear jewelry. New August BPAL releases I joined a decant circle, but I didn't get Lavender Buttercream and that sounds good too. Luvmilks seasonal goodies are out! What scents and formats appeal to you, my little pumpkin? Goblin Sugar Scrub looks nice. Would you like a Pyrex 4-cup Nightmare Before Christmas bowl with lid? (Can also get Starwars and various Disney ones.) No thanks. August Tea's fall sale starts tomorrow, 20% off everything on the site with code FALL20. Is there anything you would like to try, my Pumpkin? https://august.la/ All of the Rooibos ones look nice. I prefer tea bags. I've recently taken up embroidery, would you like a small (I embroider on 4" hoops) embroidered piece? What sort of design would you like? Oh, interesting thought. Something a little cottagecore and a little bit rock & roll? Peacock feathers: Yes, please! My kitty enjoys them. Do you wear nail polish, and if so, would you like some? What colors or finishes? I don't wear nail polish. I'm going to the farmer's market tomorrow, and there are lots of great vendors. Would you be interested in soap or chapstick or bath/body products? If you find some effective chapstick that tastes good, I could go for that. Would you be interested in a tumbler like these? If so, what theme would you like it to be? Glitter or no glitter? What color do you want the liquid to be or would you prefer the blood drip look? No thanks. How do you feel about ribbons? Is there anything in particular you are looking for if you'd want some? What about ribbon remnants? Colors/textures? My mom is my exclusive ribbon provider. 😉 Would you be interested in any skincare items? Anything you would not want? In small quantities, sure. Nothing too complicated or involved. Do you have any interest in trying my infused moonshine whiskey? I've been thinking of experimenting with autumn spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, clove) and maybe a chocolate chai. Nondrinker here, and it doesn't sound like something I could cook with, so no on this. Any interest in spooky shape wax melts in your favorite candle scents? (What are your favorite candle scents?) That sounds fun. Citrus essential oils would be awesome. How about lotion bars? That'd be nice for my dry winter skin. Unscented or lightly/simply scented would be ideal. Bird and Blend tea just did their Autumn drop! Anything look good to you? https://www.birdandblendtea.us (Also, if you're not a pumpkin person, I invite you to check out the rest of their offerings, which are always exceptional!) I'm not really into tea these days. Arcana Craves halloween drop! Anything catching your eye? https://arcanacraves.com/ I'm curious about the Trees layering note, the Smoked Vanilla layering note, and Honeys Crave Smoldering Cauldrons. Pickety Witch: Nothing is striking my fancy there. Nail polish: I don't wear it. Lush: The Blood Orange appeals to me. DIY band patches: I'm already awash in this kind of merch due to being a musician and supporting other local musicians, so I'll pass on this. Because clothing sizing is so notoriously random &&& my idea of cute may be entirely different from your cute... sock dreams? yea or nay? Anything in particular catch your eyes? Yea. I like anklets and crew length. There are lots of novelty prints I like there. The bamboo looks nice too. New Q: I have been buying soap from https://rockytopsoap.com for at least a decade as they are unscented and less likely to affect which perfume I pull out.... I realize they are not colored and swirly and as pretty but they tend to be super hydrating and luxurious. Do you have any interest in these? Maybe a small one? Does anything appeal from the Nocturne Alchemy Halloween Update? I just placed my order, so I can add-on a treat or two for you until Monday night, September 12th! https://nocturnealchemy.com/collections/limited-collection Haunted Tree, Conjuring with the Enchantress both look good to me. Are you interested in any art supplies? If so, what kinds and colours? Sure -- surprise me! I already have color pencils and crayons, but anything else is fair game. What are your fave smells for incense, and do you have a preference for format (cones, stick, loose without needing charcoal, loose that needs charcoal)? No incense for me. Anything catch your eye from this super cool queer creepy-cute style UK artist? https://www.abprallen.co.uk/ Nothing's catching my eye. Pls say more about your book preferences if you haven't already! Esp. regarding fiction. Favorite recent read was The Overstory. Here's a question... there's sooooooo many on here about tea but for my fellow coffee gals... do you prefer whole bean or ground?? if there's a choice how do you like your coffee ground?? I prefer whole bean.

    Wanton Airs, Bodiless Airs

    Mouthwatering in the vial and wet on my skin. Cognac predominates, with the aromatic bergamot offering more citrus dimension. The oud is subtle and well-blended, lending a slight earthiness. This manages to be fresh and rich at the same time. I love the lab's cognac note, and it really shines in this setting. I could see this becoming a favorite.

    Honey and Beeswax scents

    Thanks! Those both sound promising. :-)

    Honey and Beeswax scents

    I'm on the lookout for honey-patchouli combos.
  6. Mountaingrrl00

    The Sheepfold, Moonlight

    This starts out with a sharp, pungent blast of green, ozone-like cologne -- if it's hay, it's new-mown and mixed with the fuel from the lawnmower. I was worried I would get a headache and have to wash it off, but it settled down pretty quickly. Dried down, it's Cafe Au Lait and a Wool Blanket but with a soft, saffron-like hay in place of the coffee. It turns out to be a lovely, subtle skin scent, warm without being heavy. I think this will be nice for summer and for layering.

    Cypress, Patchouli, and Mud

    I was really excited about this one, and it lives up to my dreams! It encapsulates the richness and liveliness of river mud and shady evergreens. I get the impression of a cool morning, dew beading on the grass. The cypress is a little sharp at first, and becomes sweetly aromatic as it warms up on my wrists. The drydown combo is to die for - rich and earthy, clean and uplifting, almost edible to this dirt-loving nose. It reminds me of my old BPAL favorite Ace of Pentacles and might even surpass it in my affections. Fans of Luperci, Graveyard Dirt and Zombi will probably love this.

    Rose Absolute, White Sandalwood, and Orris Butter

    This starts out quite sharp, like a dry, old-fashioned rose soap. White rose at that. As it warms on my skin, it takes on a softer, woody incense tone, while remaining powdery and rosy. This is a very pretty, uncomplicated scent I could see wearing to feel clean and polished on a hot day. I think this could layer well with deeper or sweeter scents as well. Two months later, this has become an absolute favorite! It no longer reads soapy, but has a tangy, tart-fruit dimension I love.

    Noisy Goose Moon 2022

    Is anyone else getting pink bubblegum from this? It's definitely there for me! It also reminds me quite a bit of Aunt Caroline's Joy Mojo. And layers upon layers of sugar - whipped sugar, caramelized sugar, fermented sugar, fruit sugar. The banana is a great twist, especially before this scent dries down. As someone who amps cinnamon, I was worried about the spice, but it's pretty subtle this time -- I think the frankincense tames it quite a bit. This is a very fun gourmand; a kid could wear this.

    Here I Sette My Thynge to Springe

    The description is totally accurate. In the bottle and wet on skin, this is strong, rich soil. There's a suggestion of wetness, rain and stone, and a bit of the electric charge in the air after a storm. But mostly it's muddy, fertile spring soil. The mineral element gets strong on dry-down, and the whole thing fades fairly quickly.
  11. Mountaingrrl00

    Penis Bound With Gold Ribbon

    On me, this is almost entirely sweet sweet amber, with a bit of sweet sweet lemon and a hint of musk. I like a lot of gourmand scents and a lot of BPAL ambers, but I think this one is just tooooo sweet for me!
  12. Mountaingrrl00

    Imose-Yama

    I really like this one! I thought it would be a pretty spring floral, and it is, but it has much more personality than that description would suggest. There's a raunchy note in the beginning that reminds me of goat's milk, bringing creaminess (think rose milk) and a surprising bit of animal sexuality. There's some sourness, but not in a lemony way. The soft floral prettiness is right there too, along with a deeper warm sweetness that develops to a subtle caramel nuance. It stays close to the skin, and lasts about ten hours on me.
  13. Cinnamon dominates, with the strong coffee giving it a lovely depth. I love how there's an oily, sparkly impression of fried sugar. I'm not getting any dairy notes (which tend to go sour and salty on me, so I don't mind) and get just the faintest impression of coconut cream. This is very cozy for winter - so glad to have been PIF'd an imp of this!
  14. Mountaingrrl00

    Scorched Oak & Blonde Tobacco

    A little bit cologne-like, fresher than I expected. I'm reminded of birch beer at first, and I'm afraid it's going to go kinda Pine-Sol on me. This is a young, green wood, and the tobacco is sweetening it without grounding it much. I like it better when that strong top-note finally burns off. The tobacco gets that warm, chewy, hay-like aspect. I get a vanilla warmth later and a clean wood smoke vibe that's really cozy. The longer I wear it, the more I like it. Fortunately the mellow phase lasts a long time. I might try layering this with something patchouli-based to see if I can bypass the initial sharpness.
  15. Mountaingrrl00

    Tonka Bean and Saffron

    This smells very familiar. I suspect the combination is a commonality among many of the classic amber fragrances I like. In any case, it's beautiful. It gives me an impression of the color gold. It's warm and sparkly. Stays pretty consistent on my skin. This is going to be wonderful for layering. Low throw, long-lasting.
