    Chimera

    Alas, I wanted to love this (cinnamon is my jam), but it turned into a barely cinnamon scented Plah-Doh on my skin and stayed that way. If you can wear O, Snake Oil or Dana O'Shee, this might work for you.

    Candy Canes, Powdered Sugar, Snickerdoodles, and Vanilla Cream

    I bought this one hoping to get a mint heavy scent (I'm out of Lick It HG). This does start off with an initial burst of mint, but that quickly dissipates. What I smell (and what the man reported he smells) are cookies. It's a pleasant sort of holiday baking smell. It will get a lot of cold weather wear from me.

    Looking for a BPAL that Resembles a Favorite Perfume

    I'm still trying to get the man hooked on bpal. He fell in love with Mr. Burberry recently. Note description says: It opens with zesty accords of grapefruit, cardamom and tarragon. The heart notes include birch leaf, nutmeg oil and cedar, followed by the base of sandalwood, vetiver and guaiac wood. Can anyone think of anything similar? I'm thinking possibly Azathoth? Death on a Pale Horse? Spider? Thoughts? Suggestions?

    Poor Monkey

    Compassion: pink lotus root and fig milk with ylang ylang, bourbon vanilla, soft myrrh, fir, khus, and sandalwood incense. A quiet, understated scent. As moody as I am. Lol. Sometimes I put this on and it's spicy vanilla bubblegum. Other days it's warm, spiced milk with no hint of lotus. I like it both ways, and I really like that it's as changeable as my moods. Lol.

    Sleepytime BPAL

    Oddly enough, Road to Versailles at Louveciennes smelled so much like clean, powdered, sleepy baby when I put it on this afternoon that I ended up napping. It just took me right back to trying to put the boys to sleep after their baths when they were babies. I immediately felt sooo tired. Good nap tho. And I don't normally nap... I hope this was just a weird skin day, because I don't want to flash back to those fall asleep everywhere and at any time days. But if it isn't, hey, at least I'll sleep well. Lol.

    The Heavens

    Holy champagne, lavender, white musk and OUDH, Batman! I've worn this a few times before reviewing to sort of cement my impressions... While I love the white rose oudh note, the other notes make this a bit too loud and sharp for me. I'll try it again in a few weeks, but for now, the way the notes battle each other for dominance is a bit much... It makes this smell like a really old fashioned perfume soap that could knock a man out at thirty paces. The kids won't come near me when I wear this. They echo my impressions and say it smells like bad soap. For my rose oudh fix, I prefer Bestla.

    Audumla

    I love this one. I get tons and tons of thick, sweet cream with generous dollops of rich, golden honey. No herbs and only a wee little, tiny bit of frank. I've received compliments on this the times I've worn this out. It makes people hold me closer and sniff me over and over. The boys say I smell soft and pretty when I wear this. A friend kept sniffing my hair after I rubbed the excess on my scalp before a party last weekend. Very foody, very fluffy, very sweet. I may break my 2017 no back up rule for this one.

    Bastet

    Bastet is the first time that I've ever experienced the almond as cherry thing that I've seen people mention on here. This is the oddest thing... Very spicy with cherry cola syrup. I'm not certain how I feel about smelling like curry and a fountain drink.

    Morocco

    The intoxicating perfume of exotic incenses wafting on warm desert breezes. Arabian spices wind through a blend of warm musk, carnation, red sandalwood and cassia. I'm trying to figure out what Morocco, O and Snake Oil have in common. I'm tempted to believe it's vanilla, but Morocco doesn't have vanilla listed as a note. I love the idea of this, I truly do and I wanted this to smell like a sexed up version of Bengal. Unfortunately, it just smells like Play Doh. I'm going to try layering this with Bengal to see if I can get anything else out of it.

    O

    I wish that I had gotten ANY of the listed notes from O. It did the same thing that Snake Oil did on my skin and magically morphed into the scent of Play Doh. If Snake Oil does that to you, you may want to skip O.

    Cockaigne

    Just cream cake on me. Very, very sweet. Very, very nausea inducing.

    Bestla

    Okay, so this was my first time actually smelling oud, and I'm now a HARDCORE fan. I have a few other scents that list it as a note, but it isn't something that I can pick out in those. But Bestla?? This is an oud experience from beginning to end. In the bottle and wet on the skin, it's very, very... animalic and almost fecal with some rose. But when it dries down it's a sexy (and I mean you just spent a weekend locked in a bedroom doing unspeakable things type sexy), exotic, powerful, earthy and elegant roller coaster of a scent. Not for the faint of heart. Lol. Not for lovers of light scents. This is a scent that requires chutzpah. If you want to feel like an actual walking sex goddess capable of bringing the world to its knees with a knowing wink and a slow smile, THIS is the scent that you should buy. As for throw? This ain't subtle. It's a knock 'em dead one. Wear length? I clocked this at over 16 hours and some change.

    Bess

    I have been dying to try this. Wet: Where are the roses? This is Halls Mentho-Lyptus. No lie. I'm gonna try to soldier on. Dry: Jesus. Halls Mentho-Lyptus and grape juice. This smells like taking a sick day from work.

    Road to Versailles at Louveciennes

    I've worn this a few times since I got my decant because I wanted to try to do this justice. I can't. All I can say is that it's gorgeous and it's all things at once; sweet, clean, warm, bright, rich, soft, sexy, beautiful, stylish. I regret only getting a decant, so it's a full bottle for me.

    This World's Joy

    When I tested this fresh from the mail, it was a very pretty rose dominant blend. Violet and frank were just barely detectable. I thought it was pretty, but it didn't wow me. After a very rough day with nausea (which cleared up by late afternoon), I was hesitant to try this for a review. I'm glad that I did it anyway. It's a very pleasant and settling scent. Wet: The violet is front and center now. It's light and delicate. Rose gives it a little body, but the frank in this is the star of the show. It's got a goldeness to it and it's more sweet and lemony than woody. I like it. Dry: Rose and violet didn't last on me. It's all frankincense all the time. I don't mind. I've had some bad experiences with frank lately that were making me think that I didn't love it anymore. But when it smells like this - all sweet citrus and crushed pine needles, I really do love it.
