BPAL Madness!

Zorya Polunochnaya

Recommended Posts


Pale amber and ambergris, gossamer vanilla, moonflower, and white tobacco petals.


Scent is a weird thing. Something about Zorya P gives me butterflies in my stomach, it's so beautiful. As others have said, this scent is delicate and ethereal. The moonflower gives it dreaminess, the vanilla and amber give it sweetness, and the ambergris and tobacco flower ground it and give it an otherworldly edge. I'm really glad I took a chance on a blind bottle---I'd been a bit wary after Zorya's comparisons to Lyonesse (which I like okay, but the ambergris and elemi amp on me and make it sort of lemony-salty? anyway). Zorya is much sweeter and vanillic in comparison, at least from my perspective.


ETA: Funny story - my teenaged sister (not other sister who loves BPAL) is always saying perfume smells like old ladies . . . Well, the other day when I was visiting she came over and sniffled my bottle of Zorya P. Then put some on. Then put some more on. Smelled her wrists a lot. She then asked me for the link to the webpage and ordered it the next morning. :D

I've had this bottle for years now and I liked it okay but I never LOVED it. Ive recently come around after I realized its mostly tobacco I'm smelling and I am having a tobacco moment. Its ethereal powdery tobacco on me with a non sweet amber. I don't really get vanilla from this and I don't find it to be sweet.
