Looking for recommendations for a scent based on Sin with other criteria

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I've been away from bpal for a long time (years!) except to re-order my go to scent, Sin. I'm feeling very overwhelmed by everything new and I hope I'm posting this in the right place! The forum searches aren't really letting me search for Sin, (Is there a trick I'm missing?)

 

I'm about to place another order for Sin, and have a friend who is obsessed with how it smells on me but doesn't want to buy the exact same scent.

 

So my question is, what would you recommend as a scent that has the same notes as Sin? When I asked her what scents she liked, she said: of woods (oaks, sandalwood), white flowers (roses, lilies).... she also likes witchy scents.

 

I defer to the knowledge of this forum for any recommendations!

 

Thanks!

I usually just type bpal <scent>. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwii8oORpOnVAhXslVQKHdfTBpUQFgg6MAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bpal.org%2Ftopic%2F291-sin%2F&usg=AFQjCNHIllZ1UydF8ffGDrKiwOO1ZBuXPA

 

You just have to click on the bpal.org link, and not The Lab's link.

 

I would say Scherezade is similar, but more musky. Perhaps Belle Vinu or Black Lotus.

 

Dawn: Cernunnos might work, too. https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/dawn/dawn-cernunnos/


You can also just search for notes in the searchbar at the top of The Lab's website. You'll get a pretty good list if you search for sandalwood.

Sometimes three-letter searches weird out the search engine -- I've had the same problem searching for Hod.

 

Are you looking to buy a few imps rather than take a chance on a bottle? I really like trying things out before buying a bottle, and the lab does 6 for $22 and of course throws in a couple of frimps as well. If your friend likes the cinnamon spiciness of Sin in addition to the sandalwood (I get a lot of cinnamon from Sin, without skin irritation), Plunder might be a good choice. Defututa has the smoky spicy feeling I get from Sin with more flowers. I think Fallen is really beautiful, despite the fact that vetiver is not usually a good note on me. I haven't tried the Little Wooden Doll, but it has rose with amber and sandalwood instead of the patchouli and cinnamon of Sin. Rakshasa is lovely -- rose, sandalwood and patchouli, no amber or cinnamon. Another really beautiful soft sandalwood and amber blend is Vasilissa, which on my skin reads like a white floral. I haven't tried Scherezade but Belle Vinu is very different from Sin on me -- a fruity vanilla sandalwood. Marvelous, just different.

 

Good luck!

Seconding Defututa, and adding Morocco, All Night Long, Wolf's Heart, and Fenris Wolf to list of possible imps to try out.
