BPAL Madness!

Recommended Posts

The spirit of the full moon is capricious, intense and passionate, yet still distant, aloof and cold. Luna herself governs glamours, bewitchments and dream-work, innocent wonder, transient pleasure and delight, the Moment, impulse, mystery and veils. The Blue Moon is one of her rarest manifestations, and this scent is formulated to encapsulate her most complex and profound nature:

 

Mugwort and bay, for psychic sensitivity…

Juniper, for divination through dreams…

Orchid and galbanum, for complexity, wisdom and noscere…

 

… with a potent lunar-charged blend of exquisite woods, moonflower, Madagascan ylang ylang, Florentine iris, wild juniper, starry bergamot, elemi, green tea absolute, palmarosa, cucumber, Clary sage, lettuce leaf, melilot trefoils, wood aloes, and pale creeping buttercup.

This is so well blended that it is truly difficult for me to pick out individual notes. It is an ethereal, aquatic floral that reminds me a great deal of one of my grandmothers, not that there is an "old lady scent" quality to it, but she loved a perfume whose name I don't recall. It suggests it enough that the moment it hit my skin I thought of her. I will wear it during times I want to feel contemplative. It has a low throw and long last.

In the bottle: Sweet, juicy white floral, with just a hint of something bracingly herbal in the background (juniper maybe?)

Wet: Still sweet and heady white floral. Like ajansuz mentioned, it's difficult to pick out the individual notes here. 

Drydown: Powder starts to peek its head out (boo), along with the woods. Its developing a little bit of an amber quality on me, but the white floral still dominates. 

 

I'm honestly note sure how I feel about this one. It definitely reminds me of a conventional designer fragrance more than Lab blends usually do (not necessarily a bad thing, just different). I do love a white floral, but I like them really heady and juicy, and the ambery thing is making this smell a little more mature than I prefer, bordering on old lady. It's throwing me off because I can't identify anything in the description that would translate to amber; maybe its the woods, and I'm just misinterpreting what I'm smelling. Still pretty, but not one I'll reach for often.
