BPAL Madness!

A shape-shifting white flame, thrumming with otherworldly power: white amber, sheer vanilla husk, pale woods, yew sap, jasmine sambac, orris butter, white plum, and lily of the valley.

This smells quite syrupy out of the bottle(sweet and floral with a bite from something fruity and even a little wormwood-like note) So I'm definitely going to go with the wormwood note I'm smelling being the yew sap because I have personally never smelled it before and this is strange to me. I am getting a strong plummy note but it's a lighter plum...sheer? The orris is lifting it up so that it kind of hums and tickles your nose but not enough for you to suspect that. Lily of the valley is brightening up the slurry of fruity floral jasmine and plum. This oddly enough reminds me of Halloween. It smells like the air when the leaves are falling and there's candy in all the children's bags but much fruitier. The sweetness here is candy sweet and the woodiness is like a fresh seasonal wood. Overall it's a fruity plum/jasmine with a hint of Halloween air.

To me, this seems in the same family as The Girl, Ava, and I Sit and Sew. It has a few similarities to Woman at the Edge of the Woods as well, though this is less earthy. Overall, this is a very sheer, ethereal "green" vanilla, with a light backdrop of jasmine and lily of the valley. I get more vanilla and yew than plum, but maybe I will detect that more at some point. Quite lovely and faery like.
