    First Class Upgrade

    I've been really into the 2022 Liliths that I've tried. It took me forever to get a tester of this one, as I tend to be suspect of clean, rich bitch, fancy scents. I tend to agree with the above reviews, though I find First Class Upgrade to be approachable, softly sweet, creamy, airy and perhaps a little bit of a suggestion of nutty almondy, low key amber frank golden glow. Possibly androgenous, light, pleasant, casual, everyday/office appropriate, not too perfumey or high freq floral. Attractive and charming. It has a $300 designer candle version of a cabbage patch doll head vibe. I quite like it. Upscale yarn store vibes.

    Like Ghosts the Shadows Rise and Fall

    On my this is a big glamorous jasmine. To me it's not particularly sweet, the oud, vetiver, and patchouli are support players, which don't really come into play in an identifiably strong way, but as touch of vaguely dark background. I am more perceptive of the jasmine plus amber, which to me reads as a big floral style perfume. Like perfume as in what I picture ladies wearing on dates with full makeup and nails did, hair styled, fancy drawers, diva mode. I'm a patchouli and vetiver lover, so I was drawn in by the patch+vet+oud description, which would probably be a big nope for the people that would most be into it potentially? However it really isn't as intense as the notes listed. I think it might be worth a try for those drawn to sophisticated jasmine, platinum blonde Lana Turner vibe perfumes. Classic floral Oriental with wood.

    You Are So Emo

    I really enjoy the cool lavender scents that the lab has done in the past, like To A Wreath of Snow, The Air and the Ether, and Schoenperchten. I also enjoy the herbal berble scent of carrot seed, so I slavishly ordered this immediately. I had some reservations regarding potentially heavy oakmoss or tangy amber going in, but thankfully unmerited. Initial application was a sweetish ethereal lavender, tea, and the bpal ambergris, similar to the scents I mentioned above. Which I really enjoyed, v ghostly dreamy mentholic kinda sweet cloud. During the drydown, the lavender n tea combo calms down. There's a pleasant dryish rooty herbal hint that becomes more apparent after as it dries, which I think is the carrot seed + wood + labdanum, which I enjoy and find interesting and mild combined with the still present quieted lavender tea ambergris. However i could see the drydown being kind of iffy for people looking a big snowy sweet lavender bomb. The scent has less throw as it settles down, but it's still working hard and repping the opening notes. I find it very pleasant and wearable, somewhat androgynous, for both daytime and sleepytime. Win win hubba hubba, I'm pretty bonkers about this one, btw. Recommended for handsome ghost dandies in gray velvet suits and perfuming your white lace parasol white listening to Madame Butterfly alone in a Victorian graveyard on an overcast day.

    Drink Me

    From an imp: pineapple upside down cake, pleasant, upbeat, light. In the opening there are lots of interesting touches of really light currant, cherry, gold rum type hints. Emphasis on cake and pineapple juice, only slightly syrupy after initial application. Not super artificial fruit smelling, which I appreciate. Also very light on caramel, butter, and dairy, which tends to not work on me. Recommended for pineapple lovers and people who want a gourmand cake smell that's not super in your face artificial foodie. Definitely Captain Morgan and pineapple juice cocktail vibe :-0

    Sugar Cookie Peacock Queen

    I enjoy peacock queen and other rose, however when I wear this it smells comically bad. My forum buddy who likes creamy and sweet scents piqued my curiosity with her fondness for this scent so I gave it a few test drives. The sugar cookie scents didn't do very well on me or suit my taste, I'm not sure. Initial application: tangy, intense sweet brownish syrupy smell, hints of rancid dessicated orange, forgotten produce, slightly greenish, very strong. After about ten minutes, the scent came down to a syrupy sweet curry powder, with rose barely present underneath. Then dries to a sweety + light rose smell which is the most pleasant stage, very mild and more balanced and likable, but I think I prefer other combinations and other BPAL rose blends.

    I am ambivalent about leather notes and florals. Typically, heavy dark leathers are not something I'm attracted to. Wanda has a lot of recommendations on the forum for leather lovers so despite initial reservations, I love trying crowd favorites. Not dank! Pretty light actually. Several reviews noted a syrupy grape blast in the beginning, which reminded me of Nosferatu, a GC scent that I'm extremely fond of. Quickly the cherry grape wine syrup morphs to leather then into a diffuse mixed flower with a cloudy atmospheric rocks quality with a hint of sweetness and ghost of a ghost of leather and v light moss. Very airy and reminds me of a BPAL nosferatu (which I love) but in a different arrangement. Wanda is a very wearable light sheer -- androgenous spring vampire drinking maneschewitz wearing a single leather shoe in a springtime graveyard enjoying meadow breezes vibes

    The Mandrake Charm

    I wasn't ready for this scent when I first encountered it, and put it away for later, which is now. Mandrake charm is a really distinct scent, and now probably faded a lot since it's initial release. It's rooty, but also airy and suggests aquatic. So the scent doesn't strike me as outstanding or strong, and while it was initially more challenging it's actually a really calming, tall refreshing glass of water. More like a light cucumber water + fresh cut potato smell. During the initial application, it went on a bit more bitter-root scented, like the smell of a cellar. The scent changed from musty basement, bitter, to watery- herbaceous, airy, green, fresh watery celery stick but I'm also smelling the olibanum-hyssop-myrrh smelling vaguely leather-ish all blended in there as it settles down. Really unique and calming.

    In Hel, We Feast On Sugar Packets

    Like many other reviewers, I was lured in by promises of sugar which were not to be found. However it was a intense experience. I had to apply a bit, as initially i tested with a drop and it promptly disappeared. Really blossoms in warmer weather. Initially, on application it was a green stemmy light rose, a flash of something vaguely violet-iris-wisteria then lily heady white floral. I smell maybe like a touch of opium or a hint of the 1980s Pert Plus green smell. Interesting, for lover of mysteriouso glam white florals (lily tuberose) and a touch of unplaceable green tangy clean under vibe on throughout. I don't like white floral and this is blowing up my face with a sneeze attack. Pleasant, big glam flower lady, nice soft powder finsih, did not go totally baby powder, but pretty gentle, drydown.

    Sebaceous Lacerations

    Bigsmells! this is a very big orange blossom in the bottle. My experience was v similar to RoseThornandOak. Powerful champa. I have a Japanese mock orange tree and similar big spring vibe. Settles down, still floral with a touch of soap, and slight smoke finish, actually once this chills out i feel like we can get down. The champa smell is in for the long haul but opens up and is very pretty. This is lovely and some how manages to be really powerful but soft.

    All While Dreaming, Shakes Her Head

    Rosy, delicious, red currant, tart, hint of patchouli and a hint of of something sunny and lemony, but that could also just the high end of the roses. This is reading as really diffuse and sheer on me. Very Lilith-y sweet soft floral with little puff of patch. I'd recommend the patchouli-curious

    A Place of Seeing

    When I wear A Place of Seeing smells like the most heavenly iteration of exactly what I imagined after reading the notes. Generally I prefer darker autumn patchouli type scents, but am real finding myself drawn to the diffuse lavender carnation rose candy hint of musk scents in the Liliths, since these are generally hits but these notes tend to be weak, to my taste, in vintage bottles I've collected. Also, I'm not a rose hater, but I tend to be mixed on roses. Rose Quartz Bedroom was not my jam, but I'm really into A Place of Seeing. The lavender reminded me happily of the approachable sweetish van+lavender in Daybreak, another Lilith from years past that really surprised me. The sweet lavender, rose, vanilla, a little poofiness from the marshmallow and a hint of barely there bergamot. This perfume is hella cute. I get slightly better than average length and wear, since I tend to burn through sweet florals. Surprise hit! I absolutely adore this scent. Really wonderful if you liked Daybreak and can jive with the notes.

    Strong strawberry kid shampoo, with a hit of tropical mango syrupy red, with a slight red musk tart lingering finish. Recommended if you like tropical scents, fun in the sun, mango n bubblegum but not too stupid, and drinks with fancy straws. Spiritually similar to aspects of Things We do Make Echoes. Up beat, playful, not too serious

    Autumn girl seeks summer scent

    Oh wow, I love your likes. It can be worth it to look on the sales forum or other spots on the internet to buy or swap imps before you commit to a whole bottle. There's a new Womb Fury in the Lupercalias this year. I've really liked the previous iterations. It's a much loved combination of snake oil + honey scent that many reviews think smells like a combination of o and snake oil. This scent is a spring release that returns every few years. I really like sed non satiata a lot too! I was pretty into Anteros at the same time, as I was in love with red musk. How do you feel about fruit, spices, patchouli? Cedar? Aquatic smells? Sometimes navigating around what I dislike helps too. Or what I only sort of like sometimes. I typically dislike lilly so I unfortunately have not smelled lyonesse. The reviews are super helpful. I also really like reading ascentadays reviews. If you're ordering from the BPAL site directly, honestly I'd look at the hair gloss and if any of the descriptions stir you, go for it, I've never been disappointed in hair gloss and it's a great body spray too. There are a bunch of limited edition scents up that I'm pretty crazy about right now, like pumpkin snake latte snake oil, Pumpkinville (this is a sweet red musk floral). It also seems like you like scents that feature red musk, are blends with floral, have honey, have Amber, frankincense, myrrh, sweet resins, potentially clove, white florals, tuberose, cognac. Leather. Patchouli. Sandalwoods. And snake oily scents. Have you tried Smut? That's a boozy red musk. Oh! Also The Organ Grinder is really nice. Stimulating sassafras strengthener is also great, in root beer cowboy territory, but super heavy. Tombeur is a lavender scent that I really liked which matches the your notes to some degree to. white rider and black rider are general collection sandalwood leather scents which seem to be loved in the community. My fave general collection is voodoo. But I also really like nosferatu (blood wine dirt ). There are also several lupers/spring scents available now that have ginger right now. I tried to paste a link but both of the Penis with yellow ribbon, the red ribbon, and penis penetrating a pickle something something sound awesome but I haven't tried them and hope to catch some reviews and find a decent second hand maybe. I'd be curious what you thought of chibi skull... Which is a sweet patchouli From the recent yules. Hopefully this gave you some ideas! Your scents sound rad. Did not mean to overwhelm, and i tried to recommend scents that are currently available and not an ultra rare seasonal release from years past. I've been waiting a while for a big shipment of decants to arrive so I've kind of been trying to figure out what I'm waiting for and read the descriptions maybe too many times waiting for my package. Good luck! Please update with observations! I'm sorry I didn't embed links but I'm on a tablet. 😕

    Winter Scene in Little Russia

    Clean lavender, fuzzy, greyish light smoke, Ivory soap edge, light floral vibe, light smoky. my mind is bringing up iris/Oris musk, though no listed notes. This scent is like a clean cut business casual remix of To a Wreath of Snow. I love the lab's other lavenders and tea notes, though I tend to favor big heavy sweet scents. This isn't for me, but is a pleasant slightly mysterious violet acting clean lavender. Nice.

    Sugar Cookie Snow White

    I'm going to preface this review, as there are a lot of qualifiers. I was delighted to receive this in the mail 📬😌. I'd had my eye on the sugar cookie and sugar plum yules from 2021. This is the first one I've smelled. I haven't smelled any of the versions of Snow White and haven't tried any scents with sugar cookies in them, apart from maybe a Lilith. I am moderately familiar with the lab's snow note from frostbitten scents. In the past I've noticed that some of bpal's caramel scents have a strong hit of tumeric on me. My preconceived notion: a dainty sugar cookie scented candle type smell with frost. I dab on a bit and it is syrupy brown POWER! Really strong Log Cabin maple syrup Dank and big time artificial pancake with butter with an undertone of downy liquid softener and a very small piece of green pepper. This perfume is super strong and lingers! My buddy sitting across the room smelled it distinctly and immediately. It's not to my taste, but I might have to re-test in the future after smelling that og snow white, which I am now super curious about. :-0
