    Where is this scent?

    will someone kindly point me in the direction of the Vampire collection? I can't find the descriptions on the website (BPAL's). I don't see it as a sub-category. Pleae help.

    Midnight Kiss

    Just got a frimp in my order also. I'll need to have several bottles of this on hand. I am a lover of blends with red musk in them, but I don't like it as a single note. Someone above referred to this as Mme Moriarty's little sister and mentioned Bordello and after reading the above.....I'd have to say this is like Mme Moriarty without the patchouli leaf/peppery vibe it gives off but instead of going that direction in goes in the direction of a Smut/Bordello scent. It's downright ravishing (as I knew it would be) and it's going to be in my top 10 BPAL for sure. I adore it and can't wait to slather myself in it. It's sexy and sweet (just like me.....LOL).

    Chrysanthemum Moon

    Wow -- I knew I was going to love this (glad I went with my gut instinct and bought multiple bottles), but I had no idea that I would love it more than I thought possible!!! This is my favorite BPAL scent for the moment. I can't believe how gorgeous this is. This smelled very perfumey to me at first but that quality fades in the drydown (my favorite part) I've had it on for about 2 hours now and it's amazing. I'm not sure what mums smell like but I get a faint floral that smells similar to a carnation with a creamy spice intermingled with the red musk. I have this in the crook of my elbow right now and I'm only testing it. I can only imagine how lovely this will morph when I slather it on tomorrow morning. This is one that will really help me get thru the rough work day. It is very comforting, alluring and sensual. It really fits my Libra personality. I love it!! BETH -- You've outdone yourself. I may have to search for 1 more bottle. I will cry when I use this up.

    Xanthe, The Weeping Clown

    I've only tested this and I can barely smell it. I need to slather myself in this and review it afterwards. I do notice a slightly sharp note in the top note and it is not nearly as sweet as I expected. I will update after my sniffing overload ends and I can properly wear it.

    Midnight on the Midway (2006)

    I've only tested this so far. Yesterday, I could barely smell it but today testing it, it is a bit stronger. It doesn't really remind me of Midway. It's floraly and incensy and sweet. This is very unique. I think this will wear a lot differently than testing. I'm looking forward to wearing this. I'll update this afterwards.....but right now it's sugared incense with a slight soft floral tinge. Very nice.

    The Organ Grinder (2006)

    This is truly a unique BPAL. I am not familar with Sarsaparilla and I don't really care for pine bark....but this grows on you and pulls you in! At first sniff (both in the bottle and on the skin) it has a bitter/sour note that I don't care for, but it fades on the dry down. It then gets smoky and milky with a very unique smell in the background that is foreign to my nose. This keeps growing on me......and I find it oddly alluring.

    Mme. Moriarty, Misfortune Teller (2006)

    This is another good one.....although since it's so unique, it did take a few hours for my nose to adjust and for it to really grow on me. Today, when I put my hoodie on that I was wearing yesterday when wearing this, it smelled sooooooo good. If you can't wear patchouli, you can wear this cuz the leaf smells nothing like real patchouli (to me at least). It does have a strange musty smell that is oddly alluring and grows on you. The plum is not strong at all, nor is the red musk (as I've noticed in some other blends). I don't know how Beth does it....but this is perfection in a bottle. I love this one, as I knew I would.

    Melisande, The Puppet Mistress

    Another well blended LE, although not quite my cup of tea. I knew I wouldn't be able to wear this, as I can't wear Beth's Jasmine blends....however, this one isn't bad, but since I don't like Mimosa....I probably won't wear it. I can smell the mimosa and jasmine (not that strongly though) and it's quite lovely but not really my taste. I bought the whole Al-Gazam and I'm glad I got the chance to try it. Maybe I'll set it aside and try it in a few days to make sure I want to get rid of it.

    Pulcinella & Teresina

    This one's another surprise winner in the series for me. I love this. It's nice and strong (just the way I like my BPAL). A little will go a long way. This is resinous and slightly rosey and sexy as hell!!! The rose is not dominating the scent which is a good thing (does come out a bit more on the drydown), as I usually can't wear rose blends. Again.......great job Beth. I'll be wearing this a lot.

    Carnaval Diabolique

    This smells so good, but is sort of light wearing on me, so I've been reapplying all day and I love it. The opium smoke in the description scared me...as did the tuberose...but again this is well blended with no notes taking the lead. Wow....this is yummy. Black musk, vanilla, coconut, apricot flower, heliotrope..........what a great combination. This is a great one to be named after the entire Carnivale. I love this one and this is gonna cost me a lot in multiples also!!

    The Candy Butcher 2006

    You peeps are gonna start thinking Beth's paying me to advertise her Carnivale blends. I can't believe how good they are so far. This is no exception. Again...I don't usually like chocolate blends. Bliss was okay and Vice was okay....Gluttony...just okay.....this, on the other hand is exquisite because of the cream!!! I will definitely wear this a lot. It's not real sweet, but it's very creamy and deep chocolate, but the cream is heavier than the chocolate on me.....which I like very much!!

    Antonino, The Carny Talker

    Antonio is the perfect exception to "I can't wear Beth's vetiver blends". The only other blend I've been able to wear with Vetiver has been King of Spades. Antonio is another one I can't even detect the vetiver in. This is very light and very nice. I really like plum, musk, black coconut, and fig.....so I thought I'd like this, but the lavendar and vetiver scared me, as lavendar tends to amp on me. This is very light and quite a surprise. I'm glad I bought the whole Al-Gazam or I would have been afraid to try this. This is gender neutral.

    Gennivre, L’Artiste du Diable

    Oh my....the drydown on this is sooooooooo lovely. I didn't really care for this at first, as it had something in the top note that was rather sharp....so I imped some of it out and now I'm thinking I might need to order more. Wow...what a transformation. The honey is very soft in this. I can't wear a lot of Beth's honey blends, as honey amps on my skin.....but not in this expertly blended piece of art! Wow......soft, slight sweet scent that could be Dorian's younger sister! Smother me in this gorgeous cloud of goodness!! This series is going to be very costly!!

    Doc Constantine (2006)

    This one is growing on me. Let me first just say that I can't normally wear the Leather blends of Beth's as her leather note amps on my skin. This one isn't that bad. It's not really my thing, aa I don't really care for fir needle and cedar smoke, but even so this is oddly alluring and growing on me. Too bad my husband won't wear fragrance, as this would be lovely on a man. I may keep my bottle around for a whilte to see if it grows on me a bit more. It is softly smoky and woody and as very well blended.

    Theodosius, The Legerdemain

    Wow....all I can say is that Beth hit the Carnivale series out of the ball park! I'm lovin' most all of them so far (got the whole Al-Gazam)! This is very Dorian like (as I suspected) and is quite lovely. I love Beth's tea blends and this one is exceptional. The jasmine leaf is not anything like jasmine (as I can't wear Beth's jasmine) and the vanilla bean adds a hint of creamy smoothness. This is going to get a lot of wear and I don't find it masculine in the least (although I don't find Dorian masculine either). I think it is very gender neutral. Great one to own if you're a Dorian lover, as I am.
