BPAL Madness!

Roses, mineral water, and a whiff of amber and oudh. This one is a great twist on a rose blend, with that mineral water giving it some "effervescence" without necessarily being bubbly. Here's is strength, smarts, and roses. Good throw and wear length.

I'm surprised there aren't more reviews here!

 

In the imp: rose and sweet musk, like musk stick lollies; basically Eve without the moss notes.

 

Wet: amber, musk, a hint of rose, and the starry note from Yvaine.

 

Dry: musk and blue-star sparkles, with a sweet undercurrent of rose. Gorgeous on its own; would also layer beautifully.

 

Overall a stunning blend, with a medium to strong throw, which lasted for about 8 hours on my skin. Definitely one I will invest in a bottle of, I love it.

 

Stars: ★★★★★

Randomly got a decant of this, and wow, it's really pretty! I was expecting something more mineralic, but this is soft and sweetly elegant. As in Storge, the rosewater is very gentle in comparison to other rose notes (I wish it was a more common note). The oud is also very gentle and just adds a woody base to the scent without making it too strong or earthy. Crystalline and effervescent are good descriptors for Hypatia, and that star-musk thing is definitely something I'll have to be on the lookout for in other blends.

Hypatia came to me thanks to a generous PIFer.  Roses aren't usually in my wheelhouse, but rosewater tends to be more reliable on me, and it's really pretty here, shading this scent feminine.  The white musk and oud are soft rather than strident, and I don't know what makes amber crystalline, but instead of the usual glowing warm note of amber, Hypatia feels cool -- the cool of logic, of the sparkling order of the universe.  Lovely and lasting.  I'm so glad I got to try this!
