BPAL Madness!

Moss-green sugar spun lace dusted with mandrake root and sweet aged patchouli, dusty cedar, and crushed toadstools with a cauldron-splash of nightshade accord, tobacco flower, green cognac, and woodsmoke -
 

…plus a pinch of ethically-harvested, locally-sourced vegan eye of newt and toe of frog.

I am a big fan of this Lace.  😊

 

Wet, it is very green (like 95% green), a little bit cologne-y, and a little bit sweet, with a little bit of a bite.

 

Dry, the green dies down a little, and the sweeter notes take a bolder stance. It continues to keep the sharp spicy-bite, which I think counterweighs the sweetness nicely.

 

I was personally hoping for a little more of the patchouli and mushroom notes. I love The Grave-Pig, so I was hoping for WL to be a little like it, but I can barely place the patchouli, and I definitely can't pick out any mushroom notes.

 

The cedar, tobacco, and woodsmoke are very nice in this; I think they are my favorite part.

 

I really expect this to age well; I'm not super into the greener notes, and I have a feeling that they will fade out after a while, leaving the best bits! 👍

 

After having used this a few times since I first posted my review, I can safely say that Witches' Lace is like Jolly Roger's swampier sister. 😊 WL has the same salty/spicy/crusty quality that JR does (which is my favorite part of JR 😆).

I get a very green herby mix over lace, patchouli, cedar, and a whiff of woodsmoke. This is like herbs sent on a nice bonfire out there. Herby, green, smoky. Good throw and wear length.

I'm not as good at picking out "scent colors" as many are on here. This is an all time favorite of mine though. I wish it wasn't limited edition because this could become my signature every day scent if it wasn't. Alas, I shall be hoarding my bottle. 

 

It starts out almost "bubble-gum" on my skin (similar to High Strung Daisies for me -- WL actually paits with HSD hair gloss amazingly) but that fades away to a beautiful watery, herbal lace on me. I know the other notes are at play here but I am typically garbage at picking the individual notes out. All I can say is I want to bathe in this scent. It's perfect for spring, and when I have it on I cannot stop sniffing myself.

I tried this back when it arrived and amped the cedar, so I decided to let it rest for several months before giving it another try. Eight months later, I get a lot of moss from this, backed by a much lighter, dusty cedar. I was hoping to get some of the Lace vanilla, but alas, that hasn't happened during either test. It's all about the moss and cedar on me.

 

I'm glad I got to try this Lace, but it's not a keeper for me. I'll stick with Emerald Lace for my green Lace scent.

Curiously, the strongest note in Witches’ Lace for me is a poopy oudh... It’s surrounded by murky green vibes. I get some of that bubblegum Reine mentioned, just for a moment in the wet phase. It takes at least an hour for the  sneak oudh, or combo of above notes that are imitating, to fade out. By then, the sugar lace emerges, and it’s a soft, muted pale green scent. Where did my friend cedar go? 
 

Funnily, my partner smelled it at this end phase the first time I wore it, and loved the scent. The re-application had him looking around for a dirty diaper... :wacko2: haha 

 

I’m hoping the scent shifts after some more aging, because I love the concept and the final drydown is lovely enough to give me hope. 
 

Edit for new experience~ I opened WL to get a little sniffy for someone, and lo, no funk. :eek: I’ve opened the bottle since the first application and smelled the funk... It’s only been a couple weeks! Yay? Yay! Now I have to give it a new full day test.
