    Kitty Hair Gloss

    Kitty is FANTASTIC as a hair gloss. Exceptionally well-blended, it’s hard to pick out specific notes, though I can tell there is something creamy, floral, and slightly fruity to it. It smells expensive. If it were a color, it would be an effervescent rose gold. Lasting power is great, too: Application was 27 hours ago and I just got a whiff!

    Midwinter's Eve

    2018 version Yowza this is sweet! I was hoping this might be a blend of Sugar Plum Fairy and Snow White, but no, this is its own scent. A SWEET scent. I think I’d love it were I twenty years younger, but as it stands it’s too cloying to enjoy. I could imagine it as a bubble bath scent for littlies, and that would be fun, but it’s just not for me.

    Hanerot Halalu

    I can’t believe I’ve been a BPALer for this long and I’ve never before sampled Hanerot Halalu. So, finally, I’m testing the 2018 version. One of my very favorite scents is The Lights of Men’s Lives and I find this eerily similar, if a bit sweeter which is surprising looking at the notes. At times, HH is almost floral in nature, more olive blossom than olive oil. I don’t really get a smoke note here, either, whereas with TLOML there’s a heavy whiff of just-extinguished candle. I really like this, but not quite as much as TLOML.

    Carry Me

    This is really lovely. It’s a soft, warm lavender added to a gentle vanilla sugar. Not overtly herbaceous and also not identifiably foodie, it could be boring in its simplicity but it isn’t. It’s comfy, it’s comforting, it’s gorgeous.

    Sweet Strawberry Gingerbread

    This was not what I expected: Both sniffing from the decant and on my skin there is no sign of gingerbread. None. No mint, either. I get mostly sugary strawberry, vaguely reminiscent of that sought-after sufganiyot type but also slightly Strawberry Shortcake doll-esque. It sticks close to the skin and doesn't seem to last very long.

    Ghost Faced Bat

    Same buttery coconut I get from Obatala, but with something quite a bit more sophisticated. And this stuff LASTS on my skin, wow!

    Western Bonneted Bat

    When I sniff the decant I can’t control myself: My eyes literally roll back in my head and my mouth waters a little. It’s a super sexy butterscotch tobacco, simple but decadent. Sadly, on my skin it’s all fancy cigar, no foodiness, so it’s too masculine. It smells like my dad.

    Moonglow Bath Oil

    Unbelievable. Uncanny. SO GOOD. Moonglow is an olfactory journey that takes me back to toddlerhood, before the Skeeter’s Big Biscuit restaurant in my hometown shut down. While the rest of my family dug into grits, gravy, and cheesy scrambled eggs, I ate biscuit after biscuit but only after completely smothering them with honey. And oh, their honey; it was thick like jam, the color of root beer, and it managed to stick to everything nearby and that tacky feeling haunted your face and fingers for days. Moonglow smells just like those hot, flaky breakfast biscuits and dark creamy honey. Beth, Labbies, HOW DO YOU DO IT?!?

    The Blue Window Hair Gloss

    Blue Window HG is shockingly light to my nose. I apply HG by squirting into my palms, then I vigorously rub them together and then "fluff" my hair. Sniffing my hands, or later my hair, I can barely tell that I have applied this scent. It's nice, though, and I might use it on days where I don't want something really noticeable in my hair but need the glossing benefits.

    Peach and Strawberry Pulp Bath Oil

    Smells like those "organic" fruit roll-up bars I was so into during college. Peachy and strawberry-y and juicy and lovely.

    Hidden Purpose Bath Oil

    I loved Hidden Purpose when it was fresh. It was a great bedtime scent with all that rich lavender. However, I'm finding that it is not aging well at all; it's going a bit rancid at this point. I'm working from a decant, and I wonder if something is happening with the bottle itself (it's a different type than any other I've had before). Could it be eating the plastic? Super sad, because I really found this calming.

    Googly Eye Christmas Tree

    I get a nice blend of all the notes when this is still wet on my skin. Then I get the White Chocolate Death Plastic. Bummer.

    Jupiter Nourished by the Goat Amalthea

    One of my favorite OCYL scents is called Pink Ambrosia, and while the description of that is a bit fruitier, it was similar enough to this blend that I got really excited. And this is NICE! Lots of goat’s milk up front, and then the other scents emerge and balance with that gorgeous, creamy base that becomes slightly tropical. eta: In fact, now that I think of it, this kind of smells like a baby. You know that warm lovely creamy sweet completely indescribable scent of a new baby’s head? Yeah, this is pretty damn close.

    Happy and Dauntless and Sagacious

    WOW this is tart at first! It dries down very similar to Raspberry Sufganiyot, so I don’t need both.

    Yipe!

    SO GOOD when this is freshly applied to my skin. When I was growing up in Florida, every Fourth of July my family would stock up on Winn Dixie's house brand of soda (Chek) in all different flavors and the Black Cherry was always my favorite. This is a throwback to my youthful summers because it smells JUST LIKE THAT. Sadly, Yipe! hits my skin and then it's gone. SUPER BUMMED.
