    Highest Quality Vagina

    A dry, incense-y, almost powder-y nut scent. Almond and incense really dominant in this, surprisingly, as someone who really tends to amp the hell out of vanilla. I was expecting a "sexy" scent, but perhaps because of the strong incense reminding me of a Buddhist temple, this is much more of an ancient and sacred scent to me. If I didn't know the name, I would guess it was from BPAL's Egyptian Gods collection or something.

    Gentle Hands

    I am a very picky eater when it comes to mangoes. The reason I hardly ever buy it unless I'm in a mango-producing country is that I will only eat the best of mangoes. Gentle Hands smell like mangoes, undoubtedly, but it smells like a cheap, low-quality mango. The kind that's very fibrous, filled with hard strands and not much meat. The kind that's become a touch overripe without ever actually sweetening up and ripening. Or maybe this is just a mango that's been cut open and left on the counter for too long and oxidized. The kind of mango that's got a thick, rubbery, green peel. In other words, this smells exactly like the kind of mangoes that can be bought in Walmarts. The amber warms the scent up, and gives the impression of a mango sticky rice dessert that the restaurant cheaped out on and bought the clearance mangoes for.

    Bien Loin D'Ici

    This is a resinous benzoin that is just a touch sweet and just a touch spice-y and just a touch musky. Honestly, it's a pretty generic BPAL-y scent and I don't see myself reaching for it that often.

    Schrodinger's Cat

    This is so fizzy and bubbly that the first thought that came to my head as soon as I sniffed the imp is, "Champagne!" But no, this is definitely ginger ale mixed with lemon-lime soda. I have no idea how "fizz" has a smell, but that is definitely the dominant note--fizziness. Gosh, this is so fun, I definitely need more!

    This is a very soft and ephemeral floral that nonetheless has a lot of staying power. I agree with what people have said about it being a quiet, reflective, feminine scent. Remind me of when I used to go on walks around the neighbourhood at 3am, when all is quiet and silent and bathed in silvery moonlight.

    I was hoping for moss, but aside from a very lovely cool greeness in the first 30 seconds of putting it on, I don't get any at all. At first, the sweetness of the ambergris and the mint combine to smell like an after-dinner mint you get from a restaurant. With a little bit of mustiness, I suppose from the moss. Then, as time goes on, this becomes more and more like toothpaste, until I decided to go and scrub it off.

    A very earth, sweet incense. It's a pretty delicious scent, but I think in the incense category, my favourite will always be Gaueko. This is basically a "higher", "thinner" version of Gaueko, if you know what I mean.

    Arachnina, The Spider Girl (2016)

    This is a lot of musk, a lot of tobacco, and a lot of patchouli. It's dirty, smoky, and got a lot of power. A little dab goes a long way. We'll see how long it lasts.

    Black Forest

    This smells like...playdough. Or maybe pencil eraser. Either way, a plasticy, artificial scent. And it's very weak too. In less than 15 minutes, it had completely vanished. I'm very confused--never had any problems with any of these notes in other scents. I have no idea what happened. Perhaps I will let my imp rest a bit and try again?

    Les Fleurs du Mal

    A mild, soft, but very generic floral. I can identify the rose, because I'm very much a rose-aholic, but it's not very forward--like the description says, this is very much a background rose. It's not unpleasant, but it's not really something I'm crazy for either.

    What a perfectly lovely, ripe, juicy, crisp pear! This is an absolutely delicious scent. It's one of the first GC big bottles I ever bought, and I love it just as much today as back in 2015. Just beautiful.

    The Black Tower

    My son stashed away half a grape in his room once, and for a while, his room smelled like rotting, overripe grape every time I went in it. Drove me nuts. I finally found the culprit underneath his mattress, and by that time, it had basically already turned into black water. This smells like that--rotten death grape. It's probably the first BPAL imp that I have recoiled from. I gave it a chance and put it on my skin, and within a minute, I had to go scrub it off. I'm very sad.

    Clean, crisp water. Kind of like a cooler version of Vial of Holy Water.

    And Here I Sawe My Whete So Rede

    The strange sour twist to the rice milk makes this smell like sake on my skin. Sake infused with bergamot, aged in a sandalwood barrel. I'm honestly not sure how I feel about this.

    Doc Constantine (2015)

    Normally, I amp leather quite a lot, but in this scent, it's not much more than a background murmur. Instead, this smells like walking face first into the wall of my cedar closet. Maybe, if I concentrate, I can pick out a little bit of smoke, and a little hint of amber or leather. But for the most part, it's just CEDAR CEDAR CEDAR.
