    Cucidati

    Boozy orange peel and earthy-sweet fig paste is wrapped in a warm, muddled haze of rich cookie dough. The lemon tang squeezes through but is softened by the caramelized tones of the dried dates. It's a hug from Nonna in a bottle.

    Amoretti LXXV

    Opens with a bite of musked apple and a nibble of fig nestled in a crest of gilded amber. With time, the headier aspects of the perfume drift from the shore of the skin, leaving love's lasting imprint of sun-warmed fruits and sparkling vanilla.

    Rice Milk & Mango

    Expectation: Mango Lassi Reality: Surprise! The Froot Stork paid you a visit! And they brought you a sweet baby mango nestled in a soft blanket of rice milk.

    Like the Very Gods

    A viridescent rustle of olive blossoms sings from the end of the wand cap. Skin and scent bloom velvet petals sunning under breathy citrus musk. A trembling web thread of cedar lies in wait for a sandalwood snack.

    What do bottles and labels look like?

    No problem! If you Google “BPAL Worm Moon 2014,” the artwork shows up in Scentbase and an old BPAL Tumblr post.

    What do bottles and labels look like?

    @highgarden I think they’re 2013 and 2014, respectively!

    Pomegranate Sufganiyot

    Jammy gobs of sugared, tart pomegranate goo out of the bottle are crammed into a fluffy fried dough once applied to the skin. The scent experience is like eating a jelly doughnut in reverse.

    Oatmeal and Apple Spice Cookies

    From the bottle rises fresh diced apples with oats and walnuts, tossed together in a mixing bowl with sugar and grated nutmeg. On the skin, the edges brown as that cookie element bakes into view, but make no mistake; this is all about the sugared apples, subtle spice, and nutty, oaty bits.

    Boney Was a Warrior

    From the 5ml barrel sloshes a waft of almond dusted with oakmoss and grazed with rosemary foam, while jasmine wraps her coquettish tail around it all. Jasmine-averse seafarers rejoice, or rather, beware: This be your siren to lure you into the aromatic abyss with her gentle floral song. The skin tells a tale. The integrity of the almond, the wit of the rosemary, and the virility of the oakmoss join forces with jasmine’s more polished sensibilities to become something that, while not capable of commanding the military, could very well command the room.

    Sugar Cookie

    2020 version A sheen of buttery cookie sweat is tautened over a quickened, almost imperceptible pulse of cinnamon sugar. A faint perversion of egg nog permeates the air. Like a classic baked good with dastardly deeds that have yet to be discovered.

    Disembodied Malevolent Laughter

    I went into this with a specific result in mind. I was hoping it’d smell at least somewhat similar to icewine tea. My wish has been granted! The dark resins, white lemon, and icy wine grape read like icewine-laced Ceylon tea with some rounding of the tannic edges. The white musk gives it a dry, loose leaf feel. Mfw wearing this:

    Cranberries & Popcorn

    I'm not a big fan of the drydown. There's an unpleasant clashing tang with the tart cranberry and buttery popcorn. BUT it is smoothing out considerably, and it continues to get better throughout the wear. The cranberries are bright. The popcorn smells crunchy. (How?!) This perfume might leave you with kernels stuck in your teeth.

    Blackcurrant Pie

    "Baked in a buttery, flaky crust!" (If you know, you know.) Steamy blackcurrant goop embedded with froot bits and encased in a classic golden pie crust. There's like 1/4 tsp cinnamon in this recipe. I don't get any cardamom, but perhaps that is where this "perfume-y" slant is coming from that I'm picking up on, too? It's almost (like, 97%) a literal pie interpretation but for that certain something that says, "I refuse to conform to your gastronomic standards!" In any (pie) case, this one is another contender for a backup bottle. It is strong and long-lasting.

    Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Pie

    I can't believe I almost passed this one up. I was like, "Pumpkin pie? Eh." But then the reviews started rolling in and I just had to try it! In the bottle, it's a crumbly, chocolatey graham cracker crust and a cream cheese filling studded with flecks of pumpkin spice. On the skin, it's more generous with the filling, and the pumpkin spice sparkles to the surface. It balances deliciously with that chocolatey crust note. Backup-worthy. We're talking multiple backups here.

    Bliss

    Like Cocoa Puffs folded into brownie batter. Fudgy, but not too dense. Great longevity, too!
