    What do bottles and labels look like?

    LOVE the Hony Mone label. Probably my favourite so far.

    Dragon's Claw

    Smooth, polished and lethally sharp: dragon’s blood resin and three sandalwoods. Something about my skin makes this very close to Monster Bait: Ventriloquist's Dummy on me. I think 'dry woods' and I do not get along. Hoo boy. I can smell the Dragon's Blood underneath it all, being all warm and sultry, but I really have to reach past the woods. The woods. The woods. *runs*

    Dayum, that is some strong sh*t! In a really delicious way, though... I kind just want to huff it, I bet it's good for a head cold. On, wet: I actually kind of like medicinal blends. It's like a green resin or something. Quite sharp, just like the name implies. Drying: This remains, as stated before, strong sh*t. Not really office wear. I might like to wear it walking in the forest, though. It smells clean, but not in an astringent way.

    Grandmother of Ghosts

    Mania, Roman Goddess of the Dead, Matron of Madness, Governess of the Ancestral Spirits, Bestower of Divine Frenzy. Her scent swirls with a high-pitched tumult of laurel, stargazer lily, splintered woods, peony, mandarin and white musk, and is spiked with pale pepper. Wow, what an interesting and layered fragrance! Kind of a spicy floral. On: It's very delicate initially. Almost sweet, really. I can detect the dustiness, it's almost a little spooky actually. It seems kind of far-away. Drying: Flowers are floating out of the ether, but they remain delicate. It remains a very soft, pretty, and ethereal perfume. Verdict: Very interesting and pretty, but not for me, I'm a foodie girl . I might keep it around to wear once in awhile though. edited to include description.

    Yeah, I can understand why this is "Pride". In the imp, it reminds me of a cologne or perfume a CEO would wear. Real power stuff. I am scared to try it on though. Me and Rose don't get along, it's a long story, it's me, not her.... On: Well, now I know what narcissus smells like. I like it. But once again, the rose takes over and stomps on everything. I'm really stinky now.

    Hello, Endymion, how are you? Imp: a big, juicy pear. Mmmmm. On, wet: Yup, previously mentioned floral notes poking out. Right now they're quite soft. A little powdery, too. On, dry: It's going a little soapy for my taste. It's a delicate perfume, pretty. Verdict: Yeah, rose usually ruins blends for me. My skin + rose = no love.

    What to wear to a rock show?

    Perversion and Red Lantern are my two party-party standbys.

    Traveling with BPAL

    Sorry I never saw this sooner! Anyway, for anyone else who is curious, I sealed the bottles with plumbers tape, put them in one (umm, it turned out to be two, eek!) of those essential oil travelling cases with some bubble wrap inside to cushion and packed them in between lots of sweaters in my suitcase- the one that went in the luggage area. Nothing was damaged when I arrived in France, so I'd say the method worked very very well. I'm definitely going to do it that way again when I move back to the US. That's okay! What I ended up doing, and this wasn't for my entire collection but for about 15 bottles. I got some tupperware containers, and stuck in the bottles that were wrapped in bubble wrap. Then I stuck them in my luggage (checked) in between the softest bits. Everything managed ok!
