Wet Fingers

White sandalwood, champaca, snow mint, and thyme.

 

This blend started mostly as a curiosity for me, and it turned out enticing and pretty.

 

In the bottle I smelled mostly the snow mint, with hints of other things.

 

But on my skin, this turned into a finely balanced fragrance. I could pick out the four listed notes. Snow mint and thyme were perhaps a little stronger, and then sandalwood, and champaca being the most blended in. But the balance of notes really just made something new and pretty on me that was its own.

 

The blend lasted 2 - 3 hours, which for me is just a little longer than normal. It didn't change much on me during its life.

It is a slippery scent to me in the bottle, & I love the sandlewood note that makes it seem like a beautiful floral with a naughty center! Plays with the nose. It is mostly minty when it dries on my skin.

The sweet mint and herbal green of the thyme share an equal partnership with the champaca at first.  The mint starts to drift away early in dry down, and the champaca becomes more prominent, neck and neck with thyme.  The thyme wins out on my skin, but just barely.  The sandalwood whispers at me in the late dry down.  The champaca in this is very nice, and if you like thyme, definitely check this one out.  The notes work together to make a unique melange, but I'm not sure if that melange strikes my fancy enough for me to buy a bottle, since I have quite a few beautiful champaca blends already.  It is an interesting twist on my beloved champaca though, and I will enjoy having something so different in my imp collection.

Wet: Smarties candies dissolved in a half cup of "spring fresh" laundry detergent.

 

Dry: still kind of detergenty, but I can smell the thyme  the mint and a pine scent (not overly lemony). The sandalwood is starting to peek through making the scent smell dry. On the right person I bet this would be a very nice scrub pine, arid, semi desert scent.

 

This seems like it will give me a headache in any great amount.

Maybe my nose is off and I shouldn't be reviewing.  It smells really salty to me? Like I know there's snow mint and thyme but combined with the champaca it smells aquatic to me. Its a bit sweet too. Not bad, just not expected.

Aquatic lovers, give this one a shot and write what you think!

Minty snow, touch of thyme and sandalwood. This sort of reminds me Death of a Gravedigger or Cloister Snowyard from the Salons. It's got that cool snowy mint, but touches of warmth underneath.

Perhaps I amp champaca, because my experience of this scent seems very different from the other reviewers. It's like modern hippie for me with the champaca most prominent on me and the thyme gives it more of an herbal green quality, and the snowy mint perhaps calms the champaca a bit more, but it's not prominent on me. I actually really like it, and didn't even know I wanted to smell like a modern hippie, but BPAL surprises me yet again!
