BPAL Madness!

This is exactly as it sounds. Rich, yummy vanilla cake batter with the creamy sweetness of flan! I’m sure it will only get richer with age also.

Fresh from the mailbox, so may revisit later!

 

In the bottle: Smells exactly like rich, un-set cheesecake batter in the bottle. Like when you first pour it in the crust, when it's still warm and liquidy. 

 

Wet on my skin: Less like cheesecake now, definitely custardy-rich flan and vanilla cake batter. 

 

Dry: Being a massive metalhead myself (I'm listening to my friend play through 3 full Insomnium albums on his guitar and playing along with some songs on my bass as I write this), I had to get this. And I am not disappointed. ❤️ Rich, warm, eggy-sugary-creamy-vanilla cake batter and flan. Fairly simple, but delicious, and smells exactly like what it says it does. Yummmmmm. I don't like to eat white cake that much, but this is delicious to smell.

Try to keep an open mind when I say this:

 

It smells like Vanilla-flavored Pediasure.

 

And I love it. 
 

The cake batter and flan is there; that’s just what it happens to morph into in my nosebrain. It’s very comforting. ❤️

Yes! Flan! I can even sense the wobble of the tasty custard treat. 

The vanilla from the cake batter is one that I’m not fond of (like a standard vanilla scented candle on me), so I’m still pondering whether to keep the partial bottle or not.... Gonna see if the little girlie likes it. 

 

But... Flan! :cthulhu:

Wet: YOOOO. Rich vanilla cake batter, and FLAN. Spot on to the description. 

 

Dry: FLAN. The flan overtook the cake batter, and now we're just left with some flan. 

 

If you want to smell like custardy goodness, that (IMO) isn't overly sweet, give this a try.

Flan! Custardy, somewhat buttery flan on a bed of vanilla (I think the vanilla note is reminding me of the vanilla in Truth Will Prevail, which I wore recently, but I haven't tested the two side by side to be sure).

 

I like this. It's not overly buttery or sweet like I thought it might be. I'm not sure I need a whole bottle of it, but I'm definitely hanging on to the decant.

I was on the fence about this one until I read the reviews. Here goes: 


In the bottle: rich CAKE BATTER 

 

Wet: Still rich CAKE BATTER but a little bit of VANILLA peeks out. It is very sweet smelling but not unbearably so.

 

Dry: The FLAN rounds it out but it's still mostly CAKE BATTER and a bit of VANILLA. It is very comforting.

 

I can see the comparison of a vanilla candle scent but I don't mind that; it's sweet, comforting, and rich. The perfect kind of scent for a cold day.

 

I've come to the conclusion that the cake batter scent amps on me. There is also a richness that reminds me of Aoede, Melete, Mneme (another one of my favorites) but somehow this one is more balanced on me? Either way I'm glad I got it and plan to wear this one often. :)

I expected that this would be pretty similar to Aoede, Melete, Mneme, and to my nose it is. It’s a lot less complex and doesn’t last as long, though

 

For the first while this is on my skin, it’s kind of like slightly creamy vanilla extract. Really simple. After at least an hour, the custardyness comes out a lot more. 

 

It’s not a love, but it’s a like. This would be good for layering.
