Whole lotta labia.
[how ya feelin'? |listlessrather plain smelling.. woe!]

In conjunction with my Pennsic packing I went to put my best dancing cologne (that is, the stuff I wear that makes me feel the most sultry) in the box yesterday only to find that it's gone rather .. off. That, combined with maitheas's rather generous imp proffering this morning makes me think it might be time for my first BPAL order. I know that rather a lot of you have been placing rather a lot of orders over the last year or so. Would you all be lovely enough to drop me either suggestions, experiences, or links to old entries (linaerys I'm all up in your memories where you've got some stuff listed out but you're the BPAL queen on my flist so if you've got other entries somewhere I'd love to see them Nevermind, how clever of you to have put up a link right there on the main page. You? Rock.)?


The rest of my day? Ok. I'm off to Baltimore for sushi with a friend in her charmingly eclectic neighborhood. Then tonight it's more sewing and cutting out and all that good stuff. I'm feeling bloated and gross but that's to be expected this week and I'd rather now then in a week and a half at war.


A week and a half.


OH! And as an indicator of my general dorkdom? The thing that made me happiest today was finding my packing list from last year. Hi. Dork.

Heh, I was just about to let you know . . . http://www.livejournal.com/users/linaerys/259479.html is the main entry. Not completely up to date, so if you want an opinion on any scents that aren't there, let me know.

I'm leaning towards the Baghdad because bergamot does good things on me. Probably the De Sade also because leather isn't bad on me either. I'd been thinking about Hellfire as well and your opinion clinched it. I think that might be a good dancing scent. I'll probably round it out with O, Snake Oil, and either Blood Countess or Tintagel. Though with the heavier spicier things I'd probably do best with the Tintagel.

Thanks for the reviews, that was just what I needed. :)

I've considered Baghdad, but never tried it.

I have tried Blood Countess--it is a lovely sweet and bright red wine scent. The only reason I didn't buy a full 5mL is that I have lots of other red wine scents.

De Sade may be nice but I'm not a big fan of rose on me.

And you know I love O, Snake Oil and Tintagel already.

Ooops, De Sade is just leather, no rose. Well then I'm sure it's wonderful.

I'm stunned that it's already Pennsic. Stunned. *stares at calendar*

And off the top of my head, some favorites, in no particular order:

-Perversion: leather and white wine and vanilla: naughty, comforting and delicious
-O: honey and SEX! The SEX! Lots and lots of The SEX!
-Sybaris: clove and violet
-Bordello: dripping red fruits with a slight undertone of play-doh (in the way that play-doh is earthy and salty smellign)
-Dragon's Milk: sweet candy, but not cloying
-Centzon Totochin: wine and chocolate
-Danube: cool and watery
-Snake Oil: everyone loves it
-Hell's Belle: sweety flowery creamy EVIL
-Tintagel: mulled wine with a metalic herbal undertone

Please to be putting up reviews when you get them! I've been wearing men's cologne for years to get away from the more flowery smells that tend to turn to cleaning products on me so it's always nice to get people's reviews on more girlie scents. :)

I have all my posts, and many others as well, stuck in my memories:

BPAL linkies

I'm just about to put another order in, too, and I'm happily waffling in my indecision.

I have my BPAL samples but have not been systematic about evaluating them. I have my hand-written list of names and descriptors, but I honestly couldn't tell you what I have or what I like the best. The descriptions are so good that whichever one I read I think YES! That one! I feel like I need to write it down. Project!

Have fun with your scents.

I don't think I'll ever be able to get into BPAL. I'm a creature of habit, and I usually find one signature thing and stick with it -- and there's no way I can afford to go through all that trial-and-error. Still, one day I tell myself I'm going to go nuts and have a massive imp fest.
