    Goblin Stampede

    I love this. On me it’s exactly what the description says, spicy black coffee with just a tiny bit of sweetness.

    I love this. I’m really only into foodie scents. Halfling is my favorite followed by King Cake. This doesn’t remind me at all of Halfling as I love that one because it’s so nutty. Wet this smelled so much like King Cake to me. I live in Vermont so pure maple syrup is a staple here. King Cake reminds me and everyone that smells it on me of Maple Syrup. Whatever that top note is seems to be the base note in King Cake. So where King Cake stays that syrupy sweet maple on me, Cockaigne gets spicy and a tad boozy mixed with the maple syrup. And it has a lighter throw on me than King Cake which I can only wear sparingly in the winter So I don’t overpower every room I’m in. So this is definitely a keeper for me. I like it more and more too each time I wear it.

    Snake Oil

    I’m not sure at all how to review perfumes. I was introduced to indie perfumes many years ago by my dear friend Courtney who now runs BPAL Vermont lunacy. There has never been a better smelling person in the history of people than this magnificent lady lol. I have MANY allergies and thus was averse to perfumes for my entire life...and then came my friend Courtney smelling like a goddess among creatures in a way that I cannot describe. Her scent was something out of my fondest childhood memories, yet I had no idea what it was. I admired it for YEARS, just thinking my own scent was subpar. When I finally got the nerve to try BPAL it changed my life....I’ve never smelled something so wonderful....I’ve had the same scent locket in my car for nine months and everyone that gets in my car still sniffs like a crack whore in heat lol. My husband commented tonight on what he referred to as “the scent of my childhood that he just can’t seem to make place.” We have been married for 7 years. He got used to me not wearing scents because of my allergies, and he is utterly hooked. I’ve never had a person smell my neck so many times lol. I feel like Snake Oil and Sin are pretty similar though. I feel like Snake Oil is a bit sweeter while Sin is all bad all the time. Either way.....grrrrrrr.....sex in a freaking bottle!

    Banana Cream, Black Coconut & Raw Chocolate

    I really love this one too. For me I get an awesome banana top note that fades really fast on me and I’m left with a light tropical coconut with a hint of banana...I can see myself wearing this a lot in the summer! I do get a hint of the chocolate later on as I wear it!

    Milk Chocolate & Honey Cream

    This is sooooo good! It will definitely be in heavy rotation for me. The honey is a much different honey than in other BPAL blends I’ve tried. This is by far my favorite honey from them so far. It is creamy and chocolatey and so good! No floral note with the honey which is how I prefer it!

    I was super excited when I put this on. It smelled like yummy almond and cardamom. Dry down is not good for me though. Something about the lotus and Egyptian Musk together I think were problematic for me. I am interested to see how this ages though as I typically like scents with strong musky or woody notes only after significant aging. I’m hoping this might be smoother and that the notes will blend together once aged.

    Black Pearl

    I dont get any coconut or Hazlenut at all which was a bummer as that’s what I was hoping for. On me it’s all floral musk which is always a no go for me. As someone who absolutely loathes florals though, this is one of the only ones I’ve tried that didn’t give me a raging migraine. It was as pleasant as a floral can get for me.

    Kamau Kogo

    Since Obatala is a favorite I thought for sure this would be right up my alley. It leans too aquatic for me though. I find Obatala to be much sweeter and more fresh smelling. This was a good test though in that it helped me further determine which notes and types of scents work for me. This did smell exactly like a salty, coco nutty day at the beach, but alas, too much salt for me....this felt more like sweaty chasing after the kids all day while Obatala feels more like lounging in glorious solitude on a boat 🤷‍♀️

    The Sea Foams Milk

    This was my first try with a more straight forward aquatic. Obatala is one of my favorites, so I hoped I’d like this. And I do love the smell, just not on me. This smells great and is very much the kind of scent I like on my hubby, but is much too masculine for me and my foodie loving nose. It is very refreshing and effervescent! I might try to make him wear it even though he hates oil bases 😂

    Mother Shub's Pumpkin Pecan Treacle Tarts

    This is very strong pecan. It smells exactly like the wooden bowl of nuts that my grandmother used to always have in her kitchen...whole nuts in the shells. It’s definitely a heavy scent I’ll wear in the fall and winter, and I like it layered with vanilla to balance the dark woodiness a bit.

    Pralines and Powdered Sugar

    I loooove this! In the bottle it’s all nuts and butter. Wet on my skin it’s about the same. Dry it’s just like real powdered sugar with a hint of nuts in the background. This is definitely a keeper for me.

    Banana Cream Pie

    Late to the party on this one...my husband loves banana, so it has grown on me leading me to think I should try some BPAL banana scents. In the bottle I smell mostly butter. Wet on my skin it is so yummy! Banana and butter and a bit of pie crust. Throughout wear I get alternating wafts of banana laffy taffy and rich buttery banana. I really love this! I think this will layer really well with some vanillas too!

    Spiced Rum Buttercream Coffee

    This is my new favorite. It's all comforting and cozy for me as it somehow smells EXACTLY like my grandmother's house always did (I guess because there was always a pot of coffee on and cinnamon potpourri all over the house). I get no booze which I was a tad bummed by until I realized it's like my gram's house in a bottle. I'll have to scour the swap boards for more of this.

    Happy and Dauntless and Sagacious

    I am not generally a huge fan of fruity smells even BPAl, but this is amazing. In the bottle it smells exactly like fresh, super juicy raspberries. Wet on my skin is about the same and dry still is very bright, fresh and juicy smelling. I'd like to have a bottle of this!

    Womb Furie

    This is exactly what it says it is, which I couldn't be happier about! Definitely a favorite that will get heavy use! Snake Oil and honey, yum!
