BPAL Madness!

Recommended Posts

Yay, I'm the first reviewer for this! 

 

Buttery, delicious, candy-sweet, sugary POPCORN BALLS. Totally edible. Once applied, I'm not getting a ton of the Snake Oil aspect of this, except upon first application, where it adds a very solidly gooey caramel-note. That fades quickly and I'm left with a light, buttery-sweet popcorn ball scent. VERY reminiscent of the Midway scent from the very first inceptions of the Carnival Diabolique series.

 

Fleeting on me, but delicious, and smells just exactly like the real deal.

This is great.  I've been disappointed with popcorn scents lately, because they've smelled like caramel and not popcorn, but this is buttery, salty, fluffy popcorn, just made with Snake Oil, which is unusual and wonderful.  I get lots of creamy, grownup, non-gourmand, Snake Oil vanilla and a little of that dark, musky sugar, mixed into fluffy popcorn.  Very vanilla-y and satisfying.

I am a longtime fan of the Lab's popcorn note, going all the way back to Shill's debut appearance, so I knew that I would simply have to have a bottle of this on principle. It does not disappoint. As with Vampire nigh At The Movies, part of the charm is taking the simple, unadulterated buttery popcorn and combining it with something unexpected- in this case, Snake Oil- to great effect. 

The popcorn is definitely the dominant note here, which is what I was personally hoping for. But I like the dribble of non-food vanilla and musky spices skulking in the background that only Snake Oil can provide. It almost creates a caramel-corn effect, if there was such a thing as non-foodie caramel corn :lol: ...which I guess this is effectively doing? 🤔 In any event, if you're a fan of popcorn scents, definitely get your hands on some of this, you can't go wrong. ;)

The drydown process was a wild ride, producing many confusing twisted expressions on my face... Worth it! Totally sweet corn syrup stuck popcorn balls and snake oil. Its awesome.

This reminds me a LOT of a buttery version of Snake Can. And that's exactly what I was hoping for- salty, buttery, sweet with snake oil tying it all together. It's so good, I need to hoard.
