BPAL Madness!

This one is divine! Smells exactly like this LE body wash I used to buy a lot of. Flowery, warm, blushed. That rose sandalwood is something I've never encountered before, but I can tell that is a major note singing in this wonderful scent. The red oud & sweet vetiver is heavenly too!

To me it smells like the sexuality of a mature woman; confident and direct, a master of eroticism in silk red sheets.

Rosewood, amber, and a whiff of oudh. It smells mature, dark, and powerful. It's sexy, and slightly foreboding. Good throw and wear length.

At first whiff, this reminds me of Joy and Fear, but with prominent red oud and more complexity.  There's nothing funky about this oud.  It's woody and a bit sour/acidic. Red oud insn't a note I particularly care for, but I actually like what it's doing here.  I smell a hint of rose and vetiver, but the overall effect is of dark, ruddy wood over incense.  I'm liking it more as it wears and the oud becomes less ferociously center stage.  This will probably come into full glory with a bit of aging.

 

If you liked the rose/sandalwood combo in Joy and Fear or The Little Wooden Doll, or you like red oudh, this will be up your alley.

Sparkly pink poo. The fanciest poo you will ever meet. This really does have the sparkly amber from Awake and Abalone Vulva, plus the red oud you all know and love from the duets and trios. I don't get a lot of rose, but there is something very faintly rosy over all the resins, though none of them are particularly standing out to me - no sweet vetiver rising to the surface, alas. Just pinky blushy notes over some considerable stank.

 

What an odd little sip. It's a rosé all day. It's very, very pretty. I just cannot shake the indolic fancy pooudh off of the blend for at least an hour or two on my skin, and I think I would like Butterfly Dancer much more without it. Hanging onto my couple of MLs without upgrading, for now.

this is a naughty one. i'm oud obsessed so I may be biased, but I adore this. 

 

the benzoin and oud make this a little stanky, be warned. so beautiful though. very heady and woody. the "blush" rosy aspects of this blend really pop and the sandalwood helps to soften it out. one of the few oils where I can pick out each note, despite it blending so well together. 

 

very glad I picked up a full bottle of this sexy oil! it's mature, and certainly evokes images of "red."

Very glad that I got this one; was on the fence because oudh can go poudh on me real fast.  In the bottle:  Almost poudhy oudh, roses, and sandalwood.  Very volatile in the bottle; it practically jumps out at you--not bottle tight at all.  On, wet:  The sweet notes of the benzoin start to come out, and the amber and rose rise to the top.  A VERY heady, dense, rich scent.  Drydown:  The sharper notes of the vetiver float to the top, and the sandalwood aspect stays on a very long time, along with a tamed oudh.  Really a very sexy scent.
