BPAL Madness!

Interesting scent. I can smell the black pine, hinoki wood, & juniper all creating this kind of damp forest layer. Fading out, the beeswax, tolu balsam & muguet blend, come up front. I like wearing this one because I can identify/smell every note this contains.

The first impression I get on skin is black pine standing out against juniper. It's a dedication to evergreens. Uncomplicated evergreenery.

 

But then a beautiful, caramel-toned honey beeswax comes out and changes everything. It reminds me of the honey and beeswax in Dalliances by Candlelight from the Lupers... three years ago. (Really? Was it that long ago?) When I'm reading as a caramel tone is at least partly the balsam. And the way the honey-balsam blends with the evergreens is divine.

 

The trees become secondary, a faint backdrop for the honey and balsam. I wish they remained a little more up front, but it will be interesting to see how this one changes with more rest.

Discarded Sandal starts off strongest on the pine and hinoki wood, but then the lily quickly joins the party. It's a little confusing to me, the foresty notes combining with the lily, with a light beeswax sweetness beneath them. But then. BUT THEN. It ends up settling into a scent that reminds me of sucking honeysuckle nectar from the blossoms in my grandmother's backyard when I was little... which is wonderful, but unexpected.

 

I'll have to retest this one again and see if I get the same experience, because I really wasn't expecting that result! I'll update my review if it changes.

Pine, wood, honeyed beeswax, and a whiff of juniper. This seems to be teetering between piney woods, and this caramel honey. Warm, sticky, golden. Good throw and wear length.
