  8. Aah well i already orderd a bottle of Cockaigne , but beavermoon 05 is very yummy aswell. Late 2 cents: I find Cockaigne to be quite buttery. Anyone have thoughts on the very first 13 (Thirteen for anyone searching this thread )? I wouldn't mind comparisons with more recent LE's that might be easier to find. I believe there were some white chocolate blends within the last couple of years? ETA to avoid double posting: I can't find my Antique Lace to do a side-by-side right now, but Lyonesse is giving me a VERY similar feel after the white sandalwood fades (BPAL's white sandalwood is very smoky/ashy on me).

    What Scent Is This?

    D'oh! I had no idea that thread existed. Thanks for the assistance. Looks like I am off to the Swaps forum for the real Brian!

    What Scent Is This?

    Question from my cousin: she picked up a bottle of Blue Moon 2009 a while back (on LJ, I think) that was advertised as "Brian's." Smelling it, though, she thinks it's probably Beth's. (I haven't smelled either one myself.) I believe the labels are different, aren't they? She says her label has a large smiley Moon on the left side, and a winged pig over the words "Blue Moon" on the right side. Can anyone help? Thanks!!

    Bluebeard

    I am never sure what to make of violet. It seems like something I "should" like but I'm not sure whether I actually do. And I know I have a relationship with vetiver, so Bluebeard was an interesting experiment. Bluebeard is pretty clearly violet and a little vetiver; it's not one of those scents where you catch whiffs of something but can't figure out what it is. It's violet and vetiver! While it was wet the first time I tried it, I also picked up a dab of bitter lavendar. Trying it again -- much later; the imp is probably 2 years old at this point -- I didn't get lavendar, but the violet and vetiver were as I remember them. I never did pick up any white musk, but then I still haven't figured out what that smells like. I can't really picture this scent on a man because of the prominence of the violet. Chemistry can do interesting things, though!

    Eat Me

    Eat Me is fearfully buttery in the bottle, but it doesn't last, thank goodness! Instead it develops into what I want to say is Entenmann's coffee cake/pastry, the kind with the deliciously artificial fruit jam on it. Sweet and fruity and yum!

    Flame of Desire

    OMG this is really not good. I'm one of the unlucky for whom civet is a disaster. Flame of Desire smells OK in the bottle but is horrific on my skin. It is very musky and dirty and not pleasant. This is why I do the "dab test" for scent before using anything with intent... while the scent of many TALs is secondary to their purpose, if I had gotten this all over me in any sort of ritual, I would be really unhappy right now.

    All Saints'

    I am going thru my Samhain LE's from last year to prep for this year: In my years of BPAL I have found that there are two categories of rose on my skin: the kind that is rich and round and sexy and awesome, and the kind that is watery and sad. By this I do not mean "aquatic." I just mean watery -- I have no better description than that. It is the olfactory eqivalent of Kool-Aid or juice concentrate to which too much water has been added, leading to that weird weak watered-down flavor. Sadly, the rose in All Saints is one of the latter. All Saints on my skin is all resin and watery rose. The resin does not have an "incense" vibe to my nose; I think the wateriness of the rose prevents it from really developing that way. Unusally -- at least unusual for the typical behavior of my skin -- the gardenia never shows up (normally gardenia is very heavy on my skin). Just resins and watery rose.
  15. Well, I'll still talk to you even if you DID swap Othello. Hmph. It must have been too rosy for you, 'cause the musk really is nice in it. Juniper is actually an evergreen plant. So that's more resiny. I'll repeat my rec for Blood Countess, then. It actually DOES have gardenia but doesn't go too heavy. It's a very rich sexy fruity scent. And Kali... I think it would be up your alley. It's not a floral by really any definition. Gotta run now but I will keep thinking.
