BPAL Madness!

Recommended Posts

Psst! – let’s talk about mom. Lilith and I talking about Beth behind her back (in front of her face!) in a café in Berlin.

 

Coffee beans, leather, honey, and warm winter cookies.

 

Hello coffee! In this one, I would definitely say that coffee is the star. It has a tinge of sweetness to it, and a touch of honey. But overall, I am amping up the coffee in this.

 

This one is the coffee blend for me.

This is niiiiiiice. The coffee blast on application is strong, but it mellows almost immediately on me to a gorgeous honey note with some slight sweetness that I assume is the cookies. The coffee also remains throughout. Thumbs-up.

I tried Schere, Stein, Papier! on one wrist and this one on the other. And while they share similar notes (coffee beans, leather, and honey), they are different enough to warrant trying both. Secrets starts off stronger on the coffee, leather, and honey, and the honey in this is thicker, since it's a straight up honey note and not a honey liqueur. The warm cookies start off playing a background role, but they become more prominent over time, making this a coffee bean, honey, and cookie scent after several hours of wear, with some leather behind the warm, sweet notes. It's more gourmand than Schere, Stein, Papier! with its tobacco note. If you're trying to decide between the two scents and are hoping for more coffee, this is the one for you. I think I prefer this one with its cookie note.

I like it, but I don't love it, so it's not a bottle purchase for me. I'm glad I decided to try it, though!

I am not a coffee fan (drink or smell), and I'm not a bit fan of foodie scents, but I am a huge fan of leather scents so I was really hoping the leather would win out, but I popped open the imp and was greeted immediately by coffee. Honestly, I've smelled better coffee, but it's definitely coffee. Bitter coffee.

 

On my skin, it's coffee first. And then. Cookies. Sugar cookies...maybe lemon cookies. Very sweet. Cookies overtake coffee. There might possibly be some leather in there, but if so it's a soft suede-like leather.
