    Meditation Buddy

    Meditation can be much simpler when I have a buddy, tapping into collective power. Helping me feel connected and courageous. I had paused buying BPAL around the time the Lilith's dropped last year due to health and life upheaval, but knew I had to have this one. I've been seeking a bottle of Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha for literally years without success, so I was hoping Meditation Buddy would give me the perfect meditation blend. I'm back to wearing and buying fragrances again thank Vishnu, and now I am wishing i'd picked up a BU bottle I love this so much. Some of my favorite blends include frankincense such as "The Contrast" and "Hope and Fear Set Free". This is more dainty and feminine with its sweet rose laced with vanilla, adding a creaminess. I've been thinking about mixing up a huge batch of florida water with ice just for house cleaning purposes, and I wish this fragrance could be bought by the gallon to splash everywhere on me and all of my casa.

    Cito

    You've reached out to St. Expedite because you need some fast help. He so loves roses, his color is RED, his aim is fast and true and expects praise once he delivers, just like an old friend. OH Happy Cakes!!! this fragrance certainly hits all the right sweet spots. Yes, this is truly scrumptious and has all the makings of classic BPAL with its perfectly blended notes along with a little bit of yummy cake and honey resins. Baked goods, dare I say a tiny bit of cinnamon sprinkled pound cake YES! along with dollop of boozy vanilla, a grind of ginger and waxy red musk, which is less hip thrusts and more like a warm, drippy red candle burning. Wearing this, honoring the everlasting St. Expedite, feels very much like a beacon, focusing in a way you know they love, creating your best chance to draw the action in and make it happen vibrationally. Do not delay, this is gorgeous, comforting and Blessed Be.

    Snake's Tongue

    Wet, it reminds me of Steamworks or maybe Aradia, and the warmth from the black amber and ambergris rise up and i'm getting the bourbon vanilla.This is really sexy, but in a subtle sort of way. Unfortunately, the oakmoss and tobacco really start to take over, i'm amping something that takes it into masculine territory. There's a fine line for me with being able to wear something I might associate with my Dad, or Grandfather. Those two wore alot of aftershave!!! While I can see this being very popular (cause sexy as hell), it leaves me wanting more sweet, sugary Snake Oil and vanilla over the cologne woods it becomes, at least on my sugar loving skin.

    Galerie des Glaces

    Oh me Oh MY! I'm so happy I didn't miss this. Honestly, there's been a storm of releases. SO MANY perfumes, it's like a giant ocean wave of choices. No way could I EVER find my favorites very easily. So finding this one feels like winning the lottery. I've been maybe stalking reviews for this whole series because I think alot of folks have been thrilled with many of the Travelogue selections, and then purestmaiden mentioned Poison, GRABBYHANDS! I adore Beth's fancy, sparkling perfume creations. Like other reviewers have already said, this is extremely well blended. I can't really say there's a singular top note, maybe because even the listed notes are very vague. What is this beauty? I might be getting tuberose, apple blossom or even jasmine here? It is alot like House of Mirrors but i'm also getting The Girl. It is opulent, expensive, and smells like a shining Neiman Marcus perfume counter. Fragrances like these can be worn up or down, I can see this amping my mood in jeans and a t-shirt but it would also go perfectly with a little black dress and diamonds, like a star filled sky at night.

    Three Lovers

    Unbelievably beautiful one! Slinky and elegant, the other notes tame the rose, giving it a magnificent freshness. The white musk and cedarwood effortlessly intertwine amongst the florals to charm, and keep the composition modern and fresh. Soft and intimate, like a gorgeous whisper, I could drape myself in this everyday.

    Cabbage White

    A tiny creature with a wingspan less than two inches wide, she thrives on diversity but has a taste for mustard. She may be small, but she is fierce: one cabbage white butterfly can be the matriarch of generations of millions. Orris root, orris butter, lily of the valley, and vanilla cream. The double hit of orris here transforms into a fatty violet, fruity, sweet and waxy floral with vintage overtones. I get a little bit of lily in the background, giving it a certain, damp coolness, like walking through a rainy meadow filled with silvery mist. The yummy vanilla is so creamy, it's alot like a delicious violet ice cream with the perfect amount of sweetness. I'm going to dot this on my pillow tonight because I find this incredibly soothing and perhaps the perfect sleep scent. EDITING to add that I opened and applied this the day it arrived and it screamed of talcum powder. I wasn't sure it was wearable for me, so I stuck it in my storage box and forgot about it. I think this one needs a bit of aging before testing.

    Absolution Conjure Bag

    I'm not going to go into why I needed Absolution so much because it is a sad and pitiful story, but it called to me the first time I read the description and then I surfed on, and forgot about it. Over the next few weeks, the memory of it would drift back and I knew this conjure bag would find a home with me, and I couldn't wait for it to arrive. Upon opening the box, it was unremarkable in form, and then I held its squishyness and sighed. A memory came rushing back to me of my most favorite stuffie. She was an adorable chunky hippo, and I'm just now realizing that her name should carry over to my bag. I tucked the bag inside of another bag that is the softest lavender like my hippo, because it does shed a bit. This might sound ridiculous, but I have the most gentle feeling of love being close it, like sinking my face into a big, soft lavender scented pillow and being held. Thank you Beth for making something that makes my heart glow and has already guided me towards the healing I yearn for.

    Eldritch Bloom

    “Death in your arms, death in your arms” The deepest, darkest hypnotic black orchid of my dreams. This smells like the color of the night sky. Something about it reminds me of Vanessa Ives, seductive and full of secrets. Once the plummy patchouli settles into the orchid, it becomes a luxuriously deep scent, a gothic brew to entice and captivate. I would definitely call this a nighttime scent, a scent for a dreamer, a magician, a shadow. This blossom is elementally compelling and will transport you to a time of magic.

    The Storyteller

    We strike a fire. Blankets, soft sweaters inside leather, and warm skin lit up by flickering flames. Wild branches from the woods, the thickest trunks smoking and charring the night sky. Transfixed by the flames, the pops and crackles chase the flying embers and the fire comes to life. The creamy wax note is sweet and perfectly balances with the smoke and leather, creating something utterly glowing, unique and luxurious. Like sinking my nose into tossed clothes the next day, after experiencing magic beside a woodfire made with shining, golden branches. I can't WAIT to wear this once the weather cools down. This is an accidental, dizzying perfume love affair for me.

    Eve (With Sage Fuck Up)

    I had high hopes since Eve works so well on me, but the sage turned out to be too prominent. I keep getting little wiffs of something very similar to moth balls. Farewell sage Eve~

    Discarded Silks Atmosphere Spray

    This is so pretty and sweet, the plum blossom is divine and a harbinger of spring. The floral combo here is like a bright dewy morning in a formal garden, all gorgeous with smiling flower faces and filled with promise. For me, it is beautifully sweet but not cloying and just so classic and pretty. I'm going to go wild using this all over my pillows and sheets, it's very fresh and atmospheric in tone, and an overall mood lifter. Just a little bottle of pure happiness.

    Evening Breeze Atmosphere Spray

    All of the notes are very well blended, and I would say the cedar comes out as the top note. I can't really detect much of the cherry blossom, other than it giving a kind of floral whiff. In the drydown, the clove note makes the whole thing lean a little into xmas candle territory for me, so it's going into the box until after summer. Hopefully the tea comes out more and the tonka bean smooths things over. I have let atmos age to where they are perfect depending upon my mood and the time of year.

    Dalliances by Candlelight

    This takes me to a roomful of huge, white honey, creamy candles all drippy with flickering flames making heat. Not sure why I waited so long to pick this one up, but i'm so glad I grabbed it before lupers came down. I have several other beeswax scents, but the addition of patchouli here makes it earthy and just a little bit chewy with a tiny wiff of smoke. This has all the floral subtleties of expensive honey, alongside the muskiness of the waxy comb combined with sticky vanilla patch. Dare I say, something about this seriously reminds me of Banshee Beat. Of course, BB is heavier on the patch, but the wax and patch combo is reminiscent of the BB vanilla patch. So cozy and warm, it smells like toe curling ecstasy~ YES YES YES!

    Eve

    I'm dead. I've been trying to hustle a bottle of this for eternity and a day. I was certain I would never experience it, so I combed reviews, trying to find something similar, getting an empty sniffy bottle in a package, never really coming close. When the latest release happened, I went into a panic, fighting the lab's server to finally get Eve. Now that it is here, it is EVERYTHING I thought it would be and then some. The saffron is luminous next to the warm sandalwood. I'm almost getting something like opulent brocade fabric from it. A shining shroud that has been worn in tombs filled with thick blankets of incense smoke and long faded bouquets. The wet moss adds an earthiness, like some precious object that has been buried for centuries within the hollowed out earth. Flesh turned to cold marbled stone on the slab. The comfortable solitude of an empty synagogue, and the heavy scent of old wood and incense. I can assure you, I will be loving each and every wearing of this magical incense creation as it takes me through the cobblestone streets, with its haunting music and intimate hunger.

    Calumet 412

    This is my favorite C2E2 this year. It's a whirling, symphony of bay rum? and oriental perfumes at first. I'm also getting a hefty dose of gorgeous amber, opulent and divine, illuminating the notes. It smells exotic, sophisticated and expensive. It has a certain deep vanilla-oak, creamy note in the background that catapults it into extraordinary territory for me. It's like unisex darkness in a bottle, woods and incense smoke, couture perfumes, and rich cologne that is so alluring. This reminds me of a woodsy boutique, lined with bottles filled with luxurious scents, velvet sofas and leather goods. I can't stop sinking my nose into it to explore. EXQUISITE
