BPAL Madness!

Nightfall

Recommended Posts

A few months back, we took Lilith to see Rhys Darby perform his standup. The scent of a long-awaited, much-needed night out at a comedy club: bitter and sweet oranges, King mandarin, a swoosh of deep velvet musk, and blooming mock orange.

I was really interested in this and it's not at ALL what I expected. I was hoping for a nice zingy citrus whoosh with the musk, but it's a harsh orange blossom on my skin. I let it sit for a while, hoping that more subtleties would develop, but alas, this is going straight to the NOPE pile.

I don't have any other citrus BPALs in my collection, so I can't compare to anything else.

 

OOB, it's all tart and even bitter citrus peel, but on the skin the velvet musk quickly takes over. The citrus is hovering over the musk with a crispness, but the bitterness OOB fades. I don't expect the citrus will last long, but while it's here, it's a nice contrast and companion for the deeper musk. I don't get a ton of "blooming" mock orange floral at all, but it is sweetening the citrus a bit.

 

Not my usual musk scent, which is a good thing! I think this one will be a nice option in the spring.

I love citrus scents, but sadly, Nightfall is not for me.

 

It is a very bitter orange scent, and it smells like there's orange blossom or something orange blossom-adjacent in this, even though none is listed. And some orange peel. And the deep velvet musk is either red musk or very similar to it to my nose, also a no-no note for me. So it ends up being a bitter orange blossomy musk on me.

 

Woe. 😭
