      Just that one bottle, I think. :) Unless you have even a sniffie of Pollution lying around? My quest for it is never-ending :(

      i don't think so. I looked at your wish list for frimp ideas, but I don't think I have any other Good Omens. I might have imps of Bluebeard and/or Roadhouse though, if you want me to look for them and send them along! :)

      I checked & don't have those imps :( if there's anything else you are looking for that's not on your wish list, though, let me know & I will see if I have any. I have lots of imps. lol. Oh also, I discovered my in box was full, which was why you couldn't message me. oops. sorry. lol. it's cleaned out now if you want to try.

    My Country

    I got a decant of this as a surprise. I used to be very wary of salt (due to terrible experience with a perfume where salt was one of the notes), but it's one of my favorite notes now! This is just incredible. Sea salt with a hint of rosy amber. 🤤

    Queen of the Nile

    Going to try to see how this works with a man I'm interested in but who I'm talking to online...will update you. I like how it smells! ETA: 6/6/20 Hm. I'm not sure if this is working, but it's doing something interesting. It's making me feel not just more confident in my interactions with him, but, interestingly, less gender dysphoric?? I didn't expect to have it start to make me comfortable with my "feminine side" (for lack of a better term), but there it is.

    Sustained Boos

    Just got this out of the package and it's smelling like pure chocolate tootsie pop on me. I'm hoping that will change as it settles down, because I'm so not a foodie person (aside from coffee beans).

    Crowley

    Oh, Crowley, my Crowley. You're gorgeous, both you and your scent, but why do you just turn to some sort of sweet muddle of confusion on my wrist? It's a very wonderful muddle of sweet confusion, but I just can't pick out many notes aside from the musk and the vanilla--but musks of all kinds tend to turn into single-musk notes on me, so that's probably why. Still, though. I really wanted you to do what you do for so many other people. But you are very, very nice in my oil burner (especially with Aziraphale).
  7. Hi there! Trying to message you about Sadak at the Waters of Oblivion, but it looks like you can't receive messages now? PM me if you can?

    Evil Does Not Sleep

    This is TKO with a slightly diabolical undertone--something just a little bit "off," a bit smoky and a tiny bit too sweet (but not in a cloying way that makes this unbearable). It comes across as an olfactory portrait of someone trying to sleep but not really understanding how sleep works. Perfect for what Crowley ultimately does in the book. Great bedtime scent if you want something a bit more unconventional than TKO. 10/10 from me!

    Hastur

    This is the only way I can describe it: Having a sexy lurk through a churchyard at night. I'm sorry, I really tried to describe the notes here, but I just can't. This is just an incredibly sexy blend. One of the sexiest BPAL has done.
  10. Hi Joselle, Did you get my last message? 

  11. Hello Joselle, have you seen my message?

    Dead Leaves, Peonies, and Moss Atmosphere Spray

    My favorite so far of the Dead Leaves room sprays for this year! Sweet hothouse floral with the slight astringency of moss. Definitely worth a full bottle if you like florals!

    Dead Leaves, Ceylon Cinnamon, and Cocoa Atmosphere Spray

    Delicious, sweet chocolate blended with cinnamon with just a hint of cologn-y dry leaves. I'm not much for foody scents, so I think I'll be happy just using my 2ml decant, but this is quite nice.

    The Creation of Lilith

    I can never say no to pomegranate--even if I was so burned by the oudh in one of 2017's dead leaves blends that I've all but sworn it off. But there's no poo-poo smell in this gorgeous scent! I'm just getting pomegranate, lavender, and a little sweet, ripe fig--but mostly pom and lavender. If I shove my nose against my wrist, I think I get a hint of the oakmoss. Just lovely. I'll need another bottle.
  15. Every leaf tells a story. Invention, it must be humbly admitted, does not consist in creating out of void, but out of chaos. ― Mary Shelley, 1831 I have bottles #25 and #20. They just arrived, but I am an impatient person, so I opened them up. #20 Is just incredible. The dead leaves note is the strongest, and it's bolstered by what smells like lemon and orchids with a little autumn frost. A keeper! #25 is a bit less polite. It smells fruity--cherries, perhaps? Something red and juicy. It's really the first perfume I've ever had that turned to stale urine on me! Sickly sweet and acrid. I'll let it calm down before trying again, but I have a feeling this will be swapped for another blend or sold.
