BPAL Madness!

Recommended Posts

Luminescent, glowing, and otherworldly: green mandarin, neroli, honeydew, white amber, guava, freesia, white and green musks hovering over desert scrub, smashed wood, and the dry, biting scent of night air over the Groom Lake salt flats.

 

Green and fresh and lightly floral. I'm getting sweet freesia with white and green musks.

Starts out a very nice citrus with a floral note. The citrus is gone from my skin once it's dried, and then I'm just hit with strong freesia that smells a lot like an air freshener my mom used to use; not bad, but not the kind of association I'm going for with perfumes.

I tested 51 when I was first starting with BPAL and put it with my keepers, but retesting, this is not an imp I will wear again. It starts out high-pitched citrusy white floral and becomes increasingly soapy on me. White musk and green musk are both big question marks for me, and here they take over and railroad 51 into screechy soapy territory. Swaps.

Imp from 2011ish.  Very excited for this!

In bottle: super fresh and citrusy.  

On skin: starting to get more florals, with something warm in the background.  

After a few hours: this has become a lot more floral.  I hoped the citrus would stick around, but that's okay.  

I like this scent a lot; keeping the imp, and hopefully will track down a bottle.

Honeysuckle, mandarin, and salt front and center over a green musk base. Fresh, softly sweet and floral - overall impression of "melon". A scent of cheerful aliens having a spa day.

Got this as a frimp, thanks lab ❤️

 

Have looked at the description a couple of times, thinking it sounded nice, but didn't get the area 51/alien reference until I got it in my last order - which made me very exited! Always wanting to smell like an alien here! :D

 

To me, this smells like fresh laundry, after using a flowery fabric softner - or maybe just specificly the fabric softner in it self ...  So more like childhood laundry, since I don't use that kind of stuff anymore. I don't know if this is the smell of aliens and state secrets to me, but maybe it is. I sure felt like an alien as a child, even though I was "wearing human disguise/clothes"-ish - and if one were an alien, who were wanting to disguise oneself, maybe a good housewife or so would be ideal?! I don't know!

I like the scent, it is pretty and calm and nostalgic, but atm it is more like a 3,5-4/5, since it doesn't stand out to me that much and is not what I thought this scent would smell like. Maybe I will change my mind though. But I will definitely use the imp up, it is good for when you want to smell "just nice and fresh", with a more "normal" kind of scent. :)
