BPAL scents

Came home last night to find I'd gotten nine BPAL Imps in the mail! I'd ordered 6 from someone on the message board; she included 3 extras :-)

Jolly Roger: Sea spray with an undercurrent of leather, Bay Rum, and salty, dry woods.

I put this on last night before I went to bed in hopes of dreaming of a certain pirate captain...but no such luck!

Midnight: A bouquet of night-blooming flowers--evening primrose, ruellia, flowering nicotiana, wild petunia, pa nani-o-kai, night phlox, night gladiolus, moonflower and the elusive scent of Nottingham Catchfly.

I don't normally like floral scents, but this one smells SO good to me...must be on the dark side ;-). I'm wore it to work today and it reminds me of flowers tucked into a book to dry but that are still faintly fragrant.

Silk road: This is like a light, spicy incense; slightly woody, cinnamon, possibly a hint of clove, a touch of ginger, dried grassy. As Northernminx said: "the silk covered interior of a wagon train from the east where the spices and dust and cool shadows are protecting you from the scorching sun outside."

I put this on when I got home and all I can say is WOW! It's my favorite BPAL scent so far...spicy, but not in a powdery way.

Morocco: Spices wind through a blend of warm musk, carnation, red sandalwood and cassia.

Black Opal: Vanilla...tonka...musk; creamy...a comfort scent.

Malice: Ylang ylang, clove, Indonesian red patchouli, and dark myrrh.

These are the extras:

Athens: A reformulation and modernization of a true Classical Greek perfume, myrrhine: voluptuous myrrh, golden honey, red wine, and sweet flowers.

Madame X, which isn't from BPAl, but from Possets: Wicked, sinful, hedonistic, and irresistable. It's musky, creamy, enticing, perfumy, slightly foody.

Shambhala by Arcana, from Magical Omaha: Sandalwood, Himalayan cedarwood and a dash of spun honey.

Hello there! Oooh, some lovely scents there (love the cup you've stored them in too:) . I don't think I've tried Midnight, it sounds beautiful. I love Morocco, it's so soft, warm and comforting, haven't worn it for a while though, must pull it out. I wore Shambhala to bed the other night with BPAL Midnight Mass. It was a wonderful combination, so soothing.

Re: BPAL Scents
It's definitely worth trying! If you have trouble finding it, I could maybe send you a wee bit of mine to try. :)
