BPAL Madness!

Recommended Posts

The fiery, volatile scent of cinnamon, thickened by myrrh, honeysuckle, and copal.

 

Plasticy holiday-candle cinnamon + honey, deepened by the resins. Creamy and spicy.

Huh. Also surprised that I've not yet reviewed this, as it's a cinnamon blend I've tried before. This is a Lab frimp that arrived recently. 

 

In the imp: Cinnamon, myrrh, and sweetness, probably the honeysuckle. Accurate to say the resins "thicken" the cinnamon.

 

On my skin:

 

Wet, it's primarily honeysuckle tinged with cinnamon. As it dries, the myrrh comes back out again, deepening the scent. It is a beautiful, sweet, complex, deep cinnamon blend. 

 

And within an hour on my skin, it's disappeared. Why do the good ones always go?

I can see why this one is so popular! It's all creamy cinnamon and honeysuckle deepened by incense. There is an almost vanilla aspect to it that reminds me of Snake Oil and Dragon's Milk. I do wish it had more throw and staying power, but at least I can apply it to my hair (and, maybe someday, a scent locket). I will definitely be getting a bottle of this when I can.

I purchased this as a fresh imp.  I feel that the previous poster's comparison to Dragon's Milk is somewhat apt.

 

I found Dragon's Milk to be offensively sweet until it dried.  Chimera is like the dry phase of Dragon's Milk, skipping over the offensively sweet period entirely.  Excellent.

 

This has a bready undertone to it that makes it seem extremely edible.  In fact, I would say that Chimera and Bliss are the most edible-smelling BPAL scents I've tried.  The scent didn't really morph at all and lasted for an average amount of time (3-4 hours).
