BPAL Madness!

Beautiful - delicate and mildly sweet, not strongly fruity. The rice milk makes Peach Vulva smell kinda like peach yogurt, and it has kind of the same effect here, but the rice is more detectable. Mango rice yogurt? I think this will be fantastic for layering with other gentle scents.

Delicate is a perfect word for this. In the bottle I get lots of creamy rice milk, lightly sweet, with just a hint of mango. On wet the mango gets very juicy and overtakes the rice milk for a moment. Dry it is more in balance. The rice milk is less creamy, more starchy (I mean this in the best way, it is something special about rice notes that I love). It reminds me a lot of The Moon Reflected in Every Rice Paddy, very floaty and ethereal. The mango melds into it and is transformed. If you're looking for a super drippy mango nectar scent this isn't it, but it is absolutely gorgeous and so complex. Medium throw on me.

I've had nothing but great experiences in the past both with the Lab's Single Note Mango and also their blends with Rice Milk in them, so I blind-bought not one but TWO bottles of this, so sure was I, that I'd love it.

And I REALLY REALLY DO!!! Sweet, delicate and lightly fruity, this combo does what many others do not do for me: it remains true to its components and at no point does it veer off into candy or plastic territory. If you have had good experiences with mango in particular, you know exactly what I'm talking about and will definitely want to add this to your collection.

This is 100% coming on vacation with me next week, because I KNOW I'll have many opportunities to wear it! 

PURE. WIN.

This is a very fragrant rice milk with hint of mango. In the bottle and wet on skin, the mango is so juicy and I wish it'd stick around a little longer. The rice milk stays creamy and mild. Good throw and wear.

This is more foodie then fruity. The mango smells more like something you'd pipe into a pastry vs. fresh fruit. Something about this smells a little plasticy to me. I think it's a facet of the rice milk note which sometimes works for me, but isn't in this combo. It's not bad, and if the idea of a creamy mango pudding sort of smell floats your fancy, you'd probably like this. Not for me though.

Expectation: Mango Lassi

 

Reality: Surprise! The Froot Stork paid you a visit! And they brought you a sweet baby mango nestled in a soft blanket of rice milk.

Very much a delicate fruit scent rather than a juicy, bright one. Soft mango and a creamy rice milk note -- even though it's not a super juicy mango note, it's not at all unlike what a ripe ataulfo mango smells like. It's a soft and pleasant fruit scent overall, but the creaminess threatens to go plasticky on me. That and the low throw and short-ish wear time will probably keep me from getting a full bottle, but I'll hold onto my decant.

Expectation: Mango sticky rice.

 

Reality: Vaguely coconutty rice bordering on sunscreen. Someone who ate a mango a while ago has breathed in my general direction.  The mango breath is fleeting, leaving me with sunscreen.

Gah this one is so good. Big juicy mango out of the bottle. A little delicate creaminess, barely there and nothing I would associate with rice milk. This smells like mango shampoo (nearly exactly like the conditioner bar I use) and it is so fruity fresh. Fun, bright, uncomplicated, happy. It reminds me of the 90s in a way I can't place right now. Like there was a hair product that everybody used that smells like this and it's giving me nostalgia (in a happy way). LA Looks, I think. Yeah lets go with that.

 

Fully dry, the rice milk comes out more and is similar to other reviews of mango rice and starch. So pretty. I layered this with Orange Blossom and Driftwood, brb, teleporting directly to the beach in 1993. 😎🌴🏖️
