BPAL Madness!

Recommended Posts

This is awesome. Fresh out of the bottle it's a sweet mix of all the notes mentioned. In some ways it reminds me of Lola Lee Loo, but much lighter. (I think it's the cardamom evoking it.) The cardamom is front and center when I first apply, but it blends with the confetti cake and cotton candy pretty quickly. As it fades, it leaves a beautiful light scent of not-sickeningly-sweet cotton candy and sugar. It's a stunner. I don't yet have Green Lovebird, but look forward to layering and enjoying both. I also just adore the story.

In the bottle, this Lovebird smells AWESOME. Total cakey goodness, sugary and fluffy, with a hint of spice. I get maybe the barest little smidge of the cotton candy I loved so much in She Sauntered Vaguely Downwards....I would love like, 5 more sticks of that spun sugar.

 

Then once it hits the skin, ole Pinky goes into cardamom mode, the cakiness slowly disappearing into something more like cardamom cream. In fact...it dries down into a dead ringer for Cardamom Cream Pumpkin Cake's drydown. This is great news for those who love cardamommy sweets, but I was really looking for that cake-pop vanilla confetti deliciousness to linger around more. I very much expected to walk away with a bottle of Pink Lovebird, however I think I will look for a decant first and test this more.

I smell dry cake mix and cardamom. The cotton candy manifests more as a sweetness than a singular dominant note, but, its definitely “pink” and girly. I do not get the comparison to cardamom cream cheese cake but thats because the latter amped cheese on me.  As far as what might make this better than another cardamom cake scent, it would definitely be the girlish accent the cotton candy gives the scent though its a supporting note you might have to think upon rather than forward.

Pink is a sweet cardamom Cotton Candy. I don’t get much confetti cake but it is there very light to keep the cardamom from getting to spicy. It reminds me a little of Aquolina’s Pink Sugar but more BPAL like.

Pink Lovebird features a strong cardamom note that is the main player at first, with some store-bought confetti cake and cotton candy beneath it. It remains that way for the first few hours: a cardamom-y cake scent, although over time, the cotton candy gains strength, so that it ends up being this super sweet, pink, sugary sweet scent after several hours of wear.

 

When Pink Lovebird is layered with Green Lovebird, it creates this wonderful vanilla mint cake scent. The cardamom adds a bit of a bite at first, but it is quick to fade beneath the vanilla mint. The two layered are kind of like Snowblind atmo, which seems more like vanilla mint and yellow cake to my nose at times.

 

I was really hoping for more confetti cake from this one, but I won't be separating this lovebird from its green companion.

Cardamom vanilla cake, butter cream and a whiff of cotton candy. This one is a very sugary vanilla cake blend on me. If you want cake, try this! Good throw and wear length.

This smells like pink, cardamom sponge cake. I want to eat it. I get no cotton candy from this thankfully.

Wet: Cake, and cardamom. I would say that the "cake" smells more like all the dry cake ingredients you sift together before combining with the wet. It smells like that, plus cardamom. 

 

Dry: Still no cotton candy, but it doesn't matter much, since my skin all but completely ate this. Just a hint of that dry cake mix with cardamom, but it's about 95% gone.

I got into BPAL because of weenies, especially darker blends and dead leaves, but man Ive needed some happy, cozy smells lately. This is wholesome, pure joy and love. I described it to my partner as the perfect cupcake.

 

Vanilla frosting, creamy, with cake. Cotton candy isnt notable as such, but I wouldn't be surprised if that's adding to the sweetness. 

 

There have been some blends that I dont wear out because they feel too childlike for me. This, surprisingly, is not one. I didn't get any Green Lovebird, but I kind of wish I had. Curious what the two are like together.

Vanilla cupcakes dusted with cardamom.

 

This is a very sugary, fluffy vanilla cake while wet, and the cake settles down and the scent becomes a little more about sugared spices as it dries. If you like cake scents (and I certainly do) it absolutely delivers! It's almost mouth-watering.

 

It reminds me a lot of My Little Grotesque from the Lilith blends a couple years ago, and that's one of the few scents I regretted not getting, with a bit less cardamom and a bit more pink fluff.

I love the cardamom note in this; it's sugared and clear and probably my favorite cardamom note I've smelled so far from any house honestly. The cotton candy and cake come out more as the scent dries down. Everything melds beautifully. This wasn't one I initially had on my radar, but I'm really glad I ended up with a decant. It smells lovely with Green Lovebird, too.
