    Breakfast, Or Something

    Pink fruit, sweet and vibrant! I'm not detecting any milk, but this bottle has aged a few months, so I wager the notes are blending. On my skin it has a medium throw and a surprisingly medium longevity. I LOVE this, but it does not even faintly remind me of breakfast.

    Burnt Cocoa Bombs

    It's burnt, alright, like stuck to the bottom of the pan. After 20 minutes I'm getting the bitter cocoa wafting out of the smoke. I'm reminded of the Gorobble, but with bitter chocolate. A very unique scent, even for a 'fumie chocoholic. Plans include aging and layering.

    Thousands of Lights

    Ah! I dug this one out because it's Christmas Eve and I adore the story of the Little Match Girl. The candles are burning in a Victorian parlor at Christmas. The oil is almost 8 years old and all the scents have blended seamlessly. I LOVE it!

    Blackcurrant Pie

    This is a bitter berry pie that is not overtly sweet or gourmand. There is something in the dry down that reminds me of Alleviate The Frenzy and a Tom Ford perfume. Not any TF in particular, just how it settles in the dry down. Very unique, actually, I am impressed with it.

    Sticky Eyeballs and Floppy Entrails

    I just found an aged bottle. It's lovely, however not at ALL what I expected from the description or the reviews. Marshmallow- like but NOT as in Stekk or Marshmallow Poof. The strawberry has taken a hike, maybe due to aging. Licorice remains, a very sweet anise scent. My take away..Sugary Marshmallow & black licorice. Editing to say I FOUND strawberry. My nose must've been saturated when first tested.

    Totally different scent from wet to dry. Wet: Soft Flowers and carrier oil Dry Down: Elizabeth Taylor’s Sapphire (or at least my memory of it) Longevity and throw is significant at this stage (2 hours and it smells just applied.) Verdict: A work of olfactory and alchemic art and why I love BPAL

    Fortuna Liberum

    I've been after this for a while, finally got a decant in a little 1 ml bottle. (the kind with the twist cap) So it's been an aged a year with some air around it. Wet in the bottle: fresh natural Orange Blossom and a Vanilla so true it could be a dessert. The orange blossom reminds me of Henri Bendel's scent from years ago, very true to the fresh blossoms on the tree. Under that I think I detect incense. (what?) Upon Application: Creamsicle is there but not cloying. Exactly what I loved about Jiggery Pokery, but not as sweet. Dry Down: The Orange Blossom is outta there...a very fast morphing...it's going into its last phase, However I'm getting powdery incense instead of strawberry or honey. Unfortunately for me it did the "incense" thing, So I'm not fond of the dry down.

    Son of biggerCritter

    This aged beautifully! On skin, I can not get more than a 20 minute longevity in its perfect balance. But the oil on my cotton sleeve is glorious Coconut Vanilla Lime. I’m over the moon with this and ISO.

    Blind purchased, due to the hype. The notes were not attractive to me so I did not expect this magic that is Ava. It does remind me of Butterflies, Flowers & Jewels Attending. Believe!

    King Cake

    This one is AWESOME! The description does not include rum, but wet in the bottle it made me think of Hot Buttered Rum & Anne Beany, As it wears the cream cheese frosting comes out. 20 minutes later it goes into butterscotch. I'd say the Lab is improving their gourmands.

    Looking for a BPAL that Resembles a Favorite Perfume

    Any BPAL scents close to Aramis New West for Women? Just saw a 2011 recommendation to layer 51 with Lightning. Anything close since 2011?
