BPAL Madness!

All Head, All Spine, All Limb, All Loin

Recommended Posts

Snake Oil and green musk, black leather, black amber, ambergris accord, sandalwood incense, and oily black musk.

 

Fresh from the mailbox, my first thought is "yep. It's Snake Oil." It's powerfully smooth vanilla with a softer version of the leather from Snake Skin. I can only pick out Snake Oil and leather right now, but I'm certain the ambergris, amber, and black musk are all doing their part to make this even smoother.

 

No regrets.

 

On settling, I'm only getting the barest trace of green musk, but I do get a little sandalwood. It makes the leather smell a little like suede. This is very clean, balanced leather snake oil, as another commenter said.

This is incredible. This just arrived yesterday and has rested for 1 day after a cross-country trip.

 

In the bottle, it smells like brand new leather. Applied wet, and for a while later, I get nothing but new leather. About an hour later and I am getting smooth new leather balanced with sweet fresh snake oil, and a touch of green musk. I only applied a few drops, so I'm not getting a ton of throw, but I can imagine it being about the same as Snake Oil; good throw, good wear length. It is an absolute stunner.

 

ETA: This is very musky. Wear length is crazy long. It will linger even after scrubbing in the shower.

Adore this. The perfect offset to Snake Oil, which I find overpowering after a while. The amber is quite faint, the sandalwood is just a bit stronger, but mostly it's like a fresher, more balanced Snake Oil leather. Really nice and perfect for spring.

In the bottle this is sharp leather, which gives me so much hope. On, THIS is the leather blend I have been looking for!!! FINALLY! It's a clean, fresh, brand new leather front and center. The snake oil plays backup and prevents it from being too harsh. The musks are very quiet for me, and I think the black musk is doing the thing it tends to do on me where it goes slightly to powder, which makes the leather a bit more innocent than its naughtiness implies. As it dries down, the leather warms up a bit--I want to call it "hot car seat in the sun" but that doesn't sound as sexy as this is. Even with the Snake Oil dirtying this up and sexing it up, it's just so clean. Like new snakeskin boots.

I'm mostly getting a swirl of leather and ambergris that reminds me  of olla adam.  snake oil is super subtle in this.  agree that this is clean and smooooooth gorgeous leather blend.

Well-oiled, new-ish black leather and something sweet. Almost a little sugary... But mostly oiled black leather.

This is my favorite SO variant, for sure. I'm not a fan of Snake Oil but I feel compelled to keep trying variants because I'd like it to work. This one is dark and smoky and leathery enough to win me over. The lab's black leather is usually a whollop and can be very harsh -- but it's a perfect match with snake oil (which does the same thing to me but with sweet). They make good music together. 

 

Wet, it's decidedly nutty. Like the scratch and sniff peanut butter sticker. But dry, it all comes together in a smoky, leathery, dark vanilla swirl. Sexy but not sexual in the weird biological fleshy way that OG SO is for me. Sweet, but not overly sugary (more creamy).

 

Similar to Snake Skin but more leather. Glad I snagged this! For the days I want more sexy equestrian than butch biker. 

 

Like OG SO the throw is solid and a little goes a long way. I have barely 2 drops on and it's going all day.

This... this is what I was hoping to get from Snake Skin! ❤️ My skin chemistry seems to adore SO enough to amp it over everything it might be mixed with, so I get only the slightest hint of leather over garden-variety SO from Skin, but this balances out beautifully on me as well as on the hubbo! In the beginning, the SO and darker components war a bit with each other, leading to an almost peanutty note, but after about ten minutes, All Head turns into a very leathery Snake Oil, and stays like this for pretty much ever. I'm a huge fan of this!

Haven’t let this rest from its trip, but I was too excited to wait. All Head/Spine/Limb/Loin is almost a gourmand scent freshly applied, as others have commented. Reminds me of a spiced peanut butter cookie....

There’s definitely leather all over this, but I find it much tamer than Snake Skin’s leather. 

The green and black musk and amber really sweeten and smooth the leather. Though, SO is real sweet to begin with... I can’t really tease out the sandalwood or ambergris (I’m assuming they contribute to that beginning cookie phase, though). 

Snake Oil’s presence is obvious throughout the experience. 

On my wrist, scent ends in a slightly powdery muskiness. In my hair, the leather becomes the most apparent note over time.

 

I love the beginning and middle, less so the ending. I imagine the wear length will improve over time and it will become so smooooooth! Very glad I was able to swap for this gem. :heart: 

A great leather addition~

 

Edit: I’m wearing Spider Witch today and the two are very similar. All Head is more leather heavy, and SW is more seemlessly blended, yet they both have that nuttiness with the musky sexy vibe.

Holy cannoli!  I have been hunting and searching for the perfect New Leather Jacket scent from BPAL and I think I finally found it (and yeah, I don't have a bottle of Riding Crop yet but I want to fix that).  Really totally New Leather Jacket on me, start to finish!

I thought I'd tested all my spring snakes.  How did this one slither by me?  It's fantastic!  (No surprise -- my favorite SO blends are Snake Skin and Western Diamondback.)  In the imp it's mostly Snake Oil, then once it hits my skin it's SO and leather in lockstep, sweet, sexy, with great throw for the first hour or so.  There's something almost chewy about the amber and musks that are backing up the two main components; I'm not sure I can distinguish the sandalwood at all.  Basically this is a beautifully balanced Snake Oil and leather blend.  To my chagrin I didn't get great longevity from this, so I'll just have to slather and reapply.

Black leather, black musk, something that smells oily and a whiff of Snake Oil. This is as if Snake Oil and DeSade had a baby and rolled around in musky oil to do the deed. Great throw and wear length of course, because leather.
