    Two, Five & Seven

    Just got this in a swap! I've become partial to roses. In bottle: ROSES On skin: still strong roses. Hint of fruitiness? After a few hours: the rose smell is pure and strong with this one, lol. I may not be at the level of loving roses yet where this perfume is for me, unfortunately. Will perhaps keep the imp.

    Received this imp in a swap In bottle: citrus-y and sweet. On skin: gentle, almost a hint of vanilla, but not in a bad way (I usually dislike vanilla). After a few hours: it's vanished, unfortunately. I probably won't keep this one, as it seems to not really last on me. Oh well!

    The Queen of Hearts

    Just got this through a swap! Lily of the valley is one of my favorite scents In bottle: very bubblegum-y; probably the cherry. On skin: got a bit powdery on me so far, unfortunately. After a few hours: This one isn't for me, I don't think. It turned too powdery on me Will be probably be re-swapping this one away!

    Just got an imp in a swap! Lavender tends to do well-ish on me, so fingers crossed! In bottle: slightly spicy lavender. On skin: this is STRONG on me. The spices go so well with the lavender. After a few hours: smells almost candy-like? I'm smelling a bit of bubblegum. Unfortunately this lavender isn't one that I think I like. Will maybe swap the imp away, but not sure as of now!

    I received this imp in a swap. I'm a big fan of Shakespeare and fae royalty, and bergamot is one of my favorite scents. I'm a bit wary of patchouli. In bottle: This is different for sure. I can't figure out what it smells like! A bit sunscreen-y, fruity. Can't decide if I love it or hate it. On skin: I'm liking it, though I can't for the life of me pick anything out. It smells delightful though. Almost watery but not in a bad way. After a few hours: Unfortunately I don't love what it morphed to; it's a bit too watery. I'm going to keep the imp and retest it at some point, because I think I haven't decided fully yet whether I like it.

    Mary Shelley

    Just got an imp in a swap. I adore Mary Shelley, and I'm a big absinthe fan. In bottle: definitely get the absinthe, with a bit of... cherry? On skin: Oh, yum. Gentle florals (? perhaps. They're not overly sweet), with a hint of absinthe. After a few hours: I like this. It's got just enough to not feel too "perfume"y. Keeping the imp!

    Just got an imp in a swap! I've been so interested in seeing what the lab's chocolate smells like! In bottle: Chocolate (of course). This reminds me of brownies a bit. On skin: Very good. Subtle and not too sweet, which was my fear. It smells like something is baking in the oven that I would love to eat. After a few hours: I love this. It's nice and uncomplicated. I will be keeping the imp, and definitely considering a bottle.

    Just got an imp of this via a swap. I've been interested in BPAL's chocolate scents for a while now, so I'm interested to see how this goes! In bottle: CHERRY On skin: dry cherry, with a hint of cocoa in the background. After a few hours: has become more nutty with a hint of cherry and orange.

    Just got an imp in a swap! I LOVE lavender, lilac, and citrus, so fingers crossed for this one. In bottle: summer sunscreen and oh my goodness I'm in love. I hope it stays well on my skin. On skin: the lavender comes forward a lot After a few hours: I really love this. Gives some bug spray / sunscreen vibes that, as someone who likes to scramble around outside in the summer all day everyday and is currently stuck indoors in the New England winter, I ADORE. Definitely keeping the imp, and want to buy a bottle.

    Just received this decant through a swap! I'm excited to try this on myself, and if I don't care for it, I have a friend who loves the smell of gasoline who may be interested. In bottle: Gasoline, and a bit of cherry cough syrup? On skin: Oh, yum. Still got that nice hint of gasoline, but has a lovely smell of wood. Reminds me of outdoor flea markets! After a few hours: It smells mostly like wood now! I like this; I'll definitely share it with my friend as he likes some of the more "masculine" scents the lab offers.

    Received this imp through a swap! Really excited to see what the ambers do on my skin. In bottle: Amber, and a hint of medicinal. On skin: Still the same on my skin! After a few hours: It's calmed down, mostly woody and a bit sweet. I think this scent unfortunately doesn't work super well on me, but I can tell it has lots of potential.

    Just got this imp from a swap. I love the smell of dirt, and I'm very into forests and light florals, so I'm interested to see how this one turns out! In bottle: In the bottle, this smells very Vix-y to me. On skin: It definitely still has that menthol feel to it, but calmer and a bit tempered by.... what, I can't tell. After a few hours: Unfortunately, this keeps up a pretty strong menthol smell on me without much else.

    Deep in Earth

    I received this imp in a swap recently, and am excited to try it out. In bottle: Oh, I love this! Plants, plants, plants. A hint of flowers. On skin: Still very green and watery. I'm loving this, and hoping it doesn't turn on me! After a few hours: The florals became stronger on me after some time. I do like this scent quite a lot. I will keep the imp for sure, and might consider a full bottle.

    Imp from 2011ish. Very excited for this! In bottle: super fresh and citrusy. On skin: starting to get more florals, with something warm in the background. After a few hours: this has become a lot more floral. I hoped the citrus would stick around, but that's okay. I like this scent a lot; keeping the imp, and hopefully will track down a bottle.

    Imp from around 2011. I love rosemary, lavender, and lemon verbena, so this should be nice! In bottle: lavender, lavender, lavender On skin: starting to get the rosemary; reminds me of a living history museum I used to work at when we would distill the oils from the herbs. After a few hours: woody and lavender scent. A bit like summer sunscreen. One of my favorites, for sure! Hoping to snag a bottle someday.
