    Come Slowly—Eden!

    Oh my goodness I love this so much. I dont like straight floral scents, so this is the mix I've been dreaming of. Its wonderful from the bottle to dry down, definitely still a beautiful floral but warm and sweet with beeswax, honey, and amber, and grounded with the balsam giving it a nice herby undertone. I dont get much apple peel but i do think its present in the sweetness. As for the fig and champa, I'm not good at picking out either of those scents. I can't say enough how much I love this one!

    A Measurement of the Soul

    In the bottle- wonderful mixture of all the scent notes, strong on cedar but sweet and herby, too Wet- dusty cedar and nothing else Dry- a crisper sweeter cedar but... still just cedar. I'm really disappointed in this one because it smells so good in the bottle and I bought it really hoping the fig would come out. By the end of the day, the scents were finally balanced, but it fades so much by that point that you can barely smell it. Really hoping some age will bring it to the balanced scent I love in the bottle.

    Looking for a BPAL that Resembles a Favorite Perfume

    Is there anything similar to Bath and Body Works "A Thousand Wishes" (Pink Prosecco, Sparkling Quince, Crystal Peonies, Gilded Amber, Amaretto Crème)?

    Juke Joint

    I am pleasantly surprised. I didn't think I would like it and I thought I didn't like mint, but this is making me question that! I got this as a frimp when I bought Resistance and Theoi Nomioi, and funny enough when I first smelled it I recognized the bourbon from Resistance and what must be the bit of mint/snow in Theoi Nomioi. As others have said, the mint in this is herby. It is quickly followed and complimented by the sugar and as it dries down I get more of a smoky bourbon. It does get a little powdery on me, but not much. I expected the bourbon/mint combo to come across a lot more boozy or alcohol-y, but it is not at all on me. Instead it is warm, kind of bright, kind of sweet, and a happy surprise! I don't know that I like it enough to buy a full size, but I will definitely enjoy this imp. EDIT: I spoke too soon. About an hour later it's turned into a boozy mint and lost the herby mint and smoky bourbon

    Snow Scents!

    I don't have an answer, but would be interested in knowing as well since that one comes up a lot!

    Snow Scents!

    Thank you! I just read some of the reviews, and it definitely seems like a contender for what I'm looking for!

    Snow Scents!

    A revival as I anticipate my first possible Yule purchase(s)! I'm from the Chicago area and looking for something that reminds me of dusk on a chilly snowy day in the middle of winter, but isnt piney (I'm from the suburbs, no woods!) or super minty. I do want a bit of sharp/chilly air type smell, though. I know Snowflakes Are Delicious is inspired by snow in Chicago, but I don't feel like coconut is fitting. I'm new to BPAL and havent tried anything with a snow note and I'm not really sure what BPAL snow will smell like. Any recommendations?
