BPAL Madness!

Artemis, standing in her golden chariot… driving off with her fast-trotting deer over the hills and far away to some rich-scented sacrifice: leather, gleaming golden amber, red amaranth, cypress, asphodel accord, a gleam of silver, and soft brown musk.

Wet on the skin: conflicted. Leather, amber, and musk fight for prominence, with no one winning.

Drydown: Leather seems to be winning, but the amber and musk declared a truce and seem to be getting along decently.

 

Not my favorite scent, although it has some of my favorite notes. Occasional wear at best.

Leather, amber, touches of white florals and coconut? I swear there's some coconut in this. So yeah, amber, coconut and a touch of leather. Feminine, yet strong. Tropical and yet not. Good throw and wear length.

This is ... gorgeous. The glowy amber is similar to the one in Bast. And it does glow, warm and creamy and golden. The leather with the metal and asphodel give it a beautifully balanced, slightly musky mineral edge, like clean sweat. Like, natural person-smell. If that makes sense. Definitely a warrior goddess giving off an aura of strength and purpose. 

 

There is something like coconut here, but the rough husk if anything. This is like Bast's well-traveled warrior sister. It's comforting but strong and protective. Has a beautiful next-to-skin, almost pheremonal appeal. 

 

This settles gracefully. The leather and the creamy amber are in perfect balance and that hit of metal is divine. There is something beachy about this leather and I love it. I would wear this pretty much anywhere, anytime. The throw is about average. 

 

Edit: sometimes it's helpful to draw comparisons to other blends, so.... I'd say that wet, this is the brown rawhide-type leather from Silk Phoenix and Captain combined with the resinous vanillic amber from Bastet. Dry, I'm getting a ton of Black Rider vibes, maybe something between Black Rider and The Small Brown Cat. So. Um. Brown Rider! which...makes sense! It's the same sweet leather + musk combo but slightly less powdery. I find this sits better on me than Black Rider did. The powder is still there but not overwhelmed by it.

Wow this one is really a surprise. I am not a big amber lover but the dry down is a powdery musk which is making me  want a bottle. The leather is brown and really subtle. Gorgeous.
