BPAL Madness!

Recommended Posts

Smouldering opium tar, tobacco absolute, green tea, black plum, kush, ambergris accord, ambrette seed, and costus root.


Fair warning: I do not know what all the listed notes actually smell like.


In the bottle: I can pick out opium, tobacco, and something round and sweet that could be the black plum. Overall, the scent is resinous and just slightly sweet. There's nothing I'm getting that's overly sharp or divisive.


On my skin:


Wet, something lighter -- that is not the green tea -- springs to the forefront, but it has enough of the other notes in the background that I can't really isolate the smell to describe it. That's fairly short-lived, though, and then we're back to the bottle scent.


This is "femme fatale as a unisex scent" kind of evil.


Several minutes more, and the scent loses some of its sweetness. The opium and tobacco become more pronounced. It doesn't smell bad on me, but I was really loving that sweet edge to it.


By the time it reaches a really settled point, a bit of that sweetness -- it could be partly plum but isn't completely so -- comes back, but opium remains the dominant scent. It's nice and very wearable on its own -- but the sweeter phase was absolutely fabulous on me, so I miss it.


Should definitely consider layering this with something sweet.
