BPAL Madness!

Recommended Posts

The Gene Simmons of the Phyllostomidae family, this little buddy has a tongue built for harvesting nectar, extending up to a third of its body length and covered in hairy and horny papillae.

Smoked chili peppers, caramelized saffron, and clove bud.

Something about this is a little pumpkiny. Not like the Lab's usual pumpkin note that goes kind of buttery on my skin, but closer to the one in Jack. I assume it's mostly the caramelized saffron, with the help of clove bud. The smoked chili peppers are reminiscent of Raven Moon 2012, but milder, and they come out more when applied to my throat and higher up my arm.

Mexican Long-Tongued Bat is comforting, subtle, and perfectly autumnal. As good as it is now, I believe it's going to get even better and could be worthy of a backup bottle.

I get a ton of caramel from this, with clove (which makes this sort of pumpkin spicy), and touch of the other spices. The chili comes out more on the drydown. However, its like an amped up caramel Jack. Good throw and wear length.

Honestly, this reminds me to buttery pumpkin pancakes.

I fehking looooove this! Caramelized saffron would be the best single note ever, just saying.

The chili peppers and clove give this a subtle kick to the caramel and the saffron just adds this extra oomph that I was raving about online in the Parlour FB group. This is going age into the perfect syrupy perfume and I cannot wait.

This scent was bullying all the other scents in my scent box and Good lord, the CARAMEL. And it's not a thick caramel, but a soft runny caramel like the kind you make those popcorn balls with. There's also a toasty nut note sort of like roast soy nuts. I can't smell the clove at all. After it drys down, there's a small floating cloud of chili hovering a few millimeters above the caramel.

At first, all I get is smoke. It's almost coffee/tobacco. About an hour later, it has the same smoky caramel note as Dark Chocolate & Pepper-Smoked Caramel (a luper from many years back that I love but rarely wear because it's super intense) -- and the caramel is amped way up, with a little spice, which might be either chili or clove related, it's too faint so I'm not certain. I'm not sure if I can find the saffron at all. Interesting, and I like it, but a little too intense for me.

In the decant, the caramelized saffron is the strongest note (emphasis on the caramelized part), with the smoked chili pepper and clove behind it.

On my skin, I feel like it smells like toffee that's been infused with smoked chili pepper and clove. The chili pepper and clove are mild here, so I wouldn't describe it as a spicy scent. I can also see it being likened to a nice caramel-covered or toffee-covered popcorn (minus the popcorn, of course) or brittle.

This smells delicious. :yum: I would definitely eat something like this if it were put in front of me, but I am not sure if I want to smell like this. I appreciate gourmands, but I tend to avoid caramel in scents, and this is a very caramel-y scent. I just can't help smelling it and thinking of toffee and wanting to lick my arm. It's making me hungry! :lol: If you're a fan of foodie scents, definitely give this one a try!
