    Job Interview Recommendations

    Yes! This! It's my go-to perfume for interviews and I have gotten every job I've been interviewed at when wearing it

    Pleasures of the Imagination I

    I've been trying a few leather scents to find the perfect one, and this comes close for me. Shiny black leather like that of a riding crop, soft, gentle myrrh, and a touch of black amber to balance it out. I almost get a medicinal wipe smell from the amber when I put it on but it quickly blends in with the other notes. Glad I snagged a sample of this and I may get a bottle if it mellows more in the future

    Sleepytime BPAL

    Bumping this as I've been using Boomslang as a sleep aide for months now. It's the rice milk/cocoa mix that's doing it. Knocks me right out after I put it on. Lovely comforting and cozy scent

    Lucille's Room Atmosphere Spray

    I get the lilac water and amber immediately, with the lily of the valley, moss, and violet leaf following. This is blended very well, creating a classic, timeless, albeit sinister scene. Like a lilac bush in full bloom before it decays, or a large dark room with only a beam of sunlight - that you aren't welcome in.

    The Second Morning After Christmas

    Juniper and pine wood smoke with a touch of tobacco and a light chill. Unfortunately this starts turning into a soapy cologne on my skin after a few minutes, but I love the imagery!
  8. Sweet, rich brown sugar with wafts of nutty cedar and incense smoke. Dark, heady, and slightly foreboding. This is absolutely wonderful
  9. Found this lovely thread for you - http://www.bpal.org/topic/57946-looking-for-any-harry-potter-scent-recommendations/ That's such a thoughtful idea! ^.^

    Help Me Choose A Scent For A Character

    It may be a bit hard to get, but you should try Eve from the Only Lovers Left Alive collection! Eve is eternal: in three-thousand years, she has likely traveled the length and breadth of the world, immersed in innumerable cultures throughout the ages, observing the ebb and flow of humanity and the imperishability of nature itself. Despite her age, she is the character that seems most rooted, always experiencing each moment with open eyes, always fully present. Her scent is one that travels through the eons: the Irish moss, yarrow, and hawthorn of the Iron Age Britons, ancient Rome’s omphacium and honey, myrrh and calamus from Egypt, the frankincense and damask roses of the Florentine Renaissance, white sandalwood from the Far East, Moroccan saffron and rose water, and a swirl of incense from the souks.
  11. Bumping this a bit because I am missing fall! Loup Garou and Deep in Earth both smell like pine forests to me. And Loup Garou has eucalyptus The LE A World Where There Are Octobers smells like you are walking down a path with maple trees. Also if you are thinking about making your house smell like a damp, fog-filled lair then I would suggest the Tree Roots, Fallen Leaves and Tomb Moss atmo spray. I will definitely be thinking of more!

    Sell me on patchouli?

    Hope you don't mind me bumping this. I found Visions of Autumn III to be a soft, snuggly patchouli. With the bourbon vanilla toning it down I find it to be a perfect blend to wear anytime. ^.^
  13. I found this thread for you if you'd like to peruse it? Looking for any Harry Potter like scent recommendations please

    Abe Sapien

    Very soft, salty, watery musk with a hint of lime. I was worried it would be overly soapy and astringent but it's actually quite nice on my skin. On my partner this is almost like an aquatic version of Dorian. Now that the bottle is almost gone I may have to get a back up. *Edited due to realizing how I DO need this in my life and that the softness of the scent is due to some proper aging. Going on three years now and oh my goodness it's gorgeous

    Alice's Evidence

    In the imp I can definitely smell how strong the ginger is. It reminds me of Shub-Niggurath, with more dark fruits. (There are three gingers in Shub so I suppose it should.) Beautiful dark, spicy, fruity rum (almost smells like wine), but not too boozy, with a spike of black ginger that blends in after a few minutes. Sexy and throw is amazing. May get a bottle of this if I run out of my imp.
