BPAL Madness!

This one was nice, until it wasn't. It started out as a realistic rose scent but quickly turned into house paint or vinyl, both in the bottle and on the skin. My mother also got the same impression, so that's disappointing. I notice the same thing with The Rose a little bit, but not nearly as much. This one wasn't my perfect rose blend, unfortunately.

In the imp: Snow-covered roses.

 

Wet: Hard greenwood stems with a slow ooze of sap, melting snowflakes, and barely-open red rosebuds.

 

Dry: A blink-and-you'll-miss-it dewy rose; perfectly red, perfectly soft. Mild throw, with barely a 3 hour lifespan on me.

 

Stars: ★★★★

This really does smell like a freshly cut rose! There is an element of it that could veer into vinyl or chemical territory, but so far it's behaving on my skin. As it dries, the rose deepens on me, becoming even more red and lush. It's very juicy, bordering on a crisp apple scent. I also get a very green element, like the freshly cut stem. This is nice and a realistic interpretation but I don't need more than a decant.

This is honestly somehow a whole rose bush, freshly dew-kissed and root-y, crammed into an imp. Literally perfect. Just a hint a kiss of lemongrass to liven it up.  A genuine rose that lingers and unfurls as if you're walking deeper and deeper into a florist case filled wall to wall with the most perfect, freshly cut roses on earth.

 

This is the best true-to-life bpal rose I've tried so far, but I don't need more than an imp.  I think I like the idea of roses more than actually wearing them, lol.
