    I wanted this scent because of the linden blossom - I snatched a decant a few years ago and I'm pretty sure I just forgot to test this! Realized it now, because it had no comments in my bpal-sheet so I searched it yesterday and tested it finally! Wet: Beautiful, fresh, linden blossom and soap. How cool would it be, if this would smell like this on me. But I turn everything sweet. We will see. Dry: 😳 this is the first scent, that does not go sweet on me! This stays fresh! This is the 80's! It's funny, but that's the first thing that comes to my mind when I smell this: The 80's! Which means for me: Feeling protected and happy and like a child again (but it doesn't mean that it's a childish scent!). And yes, it is like soap - but really beautiful soap with some linden blossoms! I totally want to smell like this. I don't get the vanilla - and while I love vanilla I think this is a good thing, cause otherwise I would have turned this into something sweet again! Definitely a bottle!

    Detestable Putrescence

    Vanilla scented candle - and unfortunately one that I wouldn‘t buy. My husband smelled it and said „vanilla - but rotting vanilla“ 😅 he didn‘t know the name. I had such high hopes for this. Perhaps it can be used for layering?
  3. Hi there! Is there anything like The Ninth Cage from The Last Unicorn?

    Frostbitten Blood Amber

    First: I love Blood Amber. It’s my signature scent, it’s always beautiful and „fluid“, perfect, red and golden swirls, it makes me happy and confident. Since it’s OOS right now, I had to blind buy a bottle of this, because I do love Snow White and the thought of Snow White and Blood Amber was just so tempting (since the other Frostbitten Scents seems to be „scent“ + Snow White). But … Wet: a bit gingerbread and soft snow. A hint citrus. Dry: more amber. Creamy, yet dusty amber with a hint of gingerbread. After two hours: Still creamy amber, there is some very faint Snow White. It’s a comfy scent, it’s nice and behaved but it’s not outstanding. From my point dissapointing because there is just no Blood Amber in it. Well, yes, perhaps the „Amber“ part, but not the „Blood“ part. I’m not sure if I’ll keep the bottle. I have to retest it when I have erased the connection to my beloved Blood Amber from my brain. Then I can try to judge it without prejudice.

    Where is this scent?

    And another question: Blood Amber. It's OOS ... do I need to be concerned? It's my signature scent and I wanted to get another backup bottle. Has it been gone for long?

    When your favorite GC blends are discontinued

    Is there anything to replace Neo-Tokyo? It has been gone quite some time by now, but perhaps there are some who can help.

    It just seems that most of the popular scents are nothing for me. So this is ... sexy? On me it's a cup of black tea with some lemon. In fact not even that, my husband has one black tea (forgot the name) which smells just like Dorian. I wanted to write an extensive review. But through all the stages it is and stays: a cup of tea. Something I don't aim for, when wearing a perfume. I so wanted to get what Ina Garten Davita wrote in the very first review, cause it sounds so great. But I'm just sitting in the parlor with my tea and the Victorian gentleman stood me up. Damn

    If your top 5 scents are... Then try these!

    Okay, this sounds like fun! And since I plan on ordering once this year (yules - international shipping is ), I'm willing to throw in something to try out. My top 5 in random order: Blood Amber Dragon's Milk Banshee Beat Czernobok Nosferatu Any ideas?

    Where is this scent?

    I asked Puddin about it about a month ago and currently they are out of a component and are not sure whether or not they'll be getting it again. So right now it's permanently out of stock unless they can can obtain more of that component. Thank you! But really not the answer I was hoping for. Well I'll just hope the component will be available again.

    Where is this scent?

    Hi there! Have been away for quite some time - again *sigh* All the time I have been waiting for an update for Revenant Rhythm. Wasn't there talk about it becoming a GC? I know about the hair gloss etc and when it came online I was "ah well, I'm waiting for the perfume blend ... no need to go for the gloss". Now I regret this decision. Anyway ... any information about it?

    Looking for a BPAL that Resembles a Favorite Perfume

    late to reply, but I know someone mentioned that the 2009 LE Season of Ghosts smells a lot like Australian Gold sunscreen to them. Just a warning, it's pretty hard to track down. Never too late Thank you, so I'll perhaps take the quest and search for it. I admit I have hopes that the Coconut Vanilla and Tiare HG is something like Australian Gold, but nobody mentioned it - sounds delicious anyway, so I ordered it

    BPAL and pregnancy

    First of all: Congratulations and I wish you the best for your pregnancy If you are pretty sure that the scent will work on you: Why not get a bottle and wait till you can wear perfume again. If it's a fail, you can still trade it away later, after proper testing. But I think I would not bother testing new GC-stuff ... on the other side: Could be that you find the perfect scent-locket scent! The moment I knew about my pregnancy I stepped away from all my perfumes and make-up. First because I knew I should not wear them, after some time because I didn't even want to wear them. So I didn't test anything and I did not wear my scent locket. I even had to hide my TKO massage oil bottle - a scent I often used for sleeping time - because I just could not stand it any more and opening the closet where I stored it was terrible! It took quite some time before the scent went totally away. But funny how something you always liked turns into something so very ugly. But I was really sensitive. Only had to throw up once in the 12 weeks, but I was not able to open the fridge or to feed my guinea pigs. Even after my miscarriage it took some time before I could use TKO again.

    Autumn Scents - recommend the ones you love

    Queen Alice! Never expected it to be my autumn scent, but it was the first thing I thought when I applied it. It was all I wanted the apple Weenies to be! Warm, ripe, boozy, comforting. But have to add: It's an aged imp, no idea how it smells lab-fresh!

    This is a approx. 2 years old frimp. Okay, this is going to be short: Mint toothpaste! Somewhere in the dry stage there comes a hint of fruit, but it stays way in the background. Since I'm not a big fan of toothpaste-mints I won't be wearing this as a perfume but I'll keep it to test if it helps me when I have a cold.

    This one was a frimp from the lab. My biggest loves came from frimps - but this one ist just terrible, ugly and negative. Wet it's pure medicine on me. Something you smell in hospitals and gives you the feeling that something is wrong and you want to run away, away from hearing some bad news. Dry the medicine steps back a bit and makes the ashes and the fire come out. But not a nice, cozy fire, which makes you grab some cocoa and a book! No this is a mean, bad, vicious fire. It burns down your house and all the stuff you love and leaves you feeling empty. This scent has such a negative vibe to it, that I almost feel scared and I really can't wait to wash it off. Something in it triggers some really bad feelings in me and turns my stomach into a big, hard stone. Need to get rid of this and apply something poitive, warm, cozy. Wow, never had such a bad reaction to any BPAL ... like a nightmare.
