Meant to post this sooner but...
Oops?

Anyway, I've got a bunch of BPAL auctions ending in a few hours. Mostly LEs and a bunch are still under $10 so go check 'em out!

http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZanalise83

You'll find Rose Moon, Tamamo-No-Mae, a couple of Monsterbaits, a Chaos Theory, one of the Poe scents, some of the more recent Lunacies, and a bunch of imps. ;)

Is it just me?
Or does Carnal smell like baby?

Not baby powder but baby.

Am I nuts here? I'm completely associating it with that smell. Which isn't really very, you know carnal. More pure and innocent and freshly-washed.

Hello My Name is Chatrient and I am a BPALcoholic
Thanks for the invite! I posted a comment on somone's entry here before I was invited so I apologise for that if it was a community no-no :(

I am hoping for some insights from your community reviews, and for possible swapping!

I am Chatrient pretty much anywhere if you want to contact me: LJ SinandSalvation, BPAL_ISOs, BPAL dot ORG, AIM and hotmail.

Have a wonderful weekend :)

I nearly cried in the post office today...
So, like, back near the beginning of May, I ordered three limited edition scents from BPAL. They were mailed out on May 31. USPS's tracking tool told me they'd arrived at my place on June 2. No package. But sometimes, it's erratic and the actual package shows up later so I don't think much of it and went along.

No package on Monday. On Tuesday, I mention it in the BPAL forums and it's suggested I take it up with my local PO, which I'd planned on doing. No package on Tuesday. On Wednesday morning, I call up USPS and it's confirmed that the package, indeed, is supposed to have been delivered, but I am given the option of asking them to investigate it and getting a callback "within a day". I give them my info (address, two contact phone numbers, the tracking number for the package) and they say they'll send it on to the local PO and have them call me back "within a day" with whatever they find. Today rolls around. No calls have come for me from USPS by the time I leave work to either my cell or my work phone so I swing by the local PO and tell the lady there the story and that since nobody called me back I thought I'd just come and talk to them face to face. I am basically told if it says it was delivered on the second, then it must have been delivered on the second (with the suggestion that maybe my postperson had left the package on my doorstep and that maybe someone stole it. Which yeah, could happen, but these boxes fit inside my mailbox and I've never had the postperson leave it on my doorstep.) and there's nothing they can do. And yeah, I get that, I didn't get insurance on the package (I don't even remember if BPAL does insurance for their stuff though I'm sure they would if you ask). I'm fighting off tears, though, as I walk out of there. That's a pretty tidy sum of money I get nothing for, after all, and everyone I'd talked to had been pretty much unsypathetic.

Imagine my surprise, then, when I get home and check my mailbox. There's my package! And on the label, handwritten is This was delivered to the wrong address by a sub. Sorry, I corrected it. Reg, [postperson].

So thank you, guy who delivers my mail! I will now have to call the PO back and tell them how appreciative I am you noticed this mistake and corrected it.

So, my trading post package was waiting on me to get home . And here we go:

Rose Moon Tee? Fabulous. Utterly. I have a new favorite t-shirt. Beautiful, beautiful thing.

Monsterbait: biggercritter? Smells nummy. More citrusy than I expected (and I Haven't actually tried it on my skin yet, this is just in the bottle) but still nummy. :D

Scent Locket (the carnaval diabolique one): I'm going to have to wear it tomorrow, I think. But with what....?

annnnnd, FREEBIES!

They scent me a little Alchemists Local 93 magnet (will go on fridge), a pretty funny-looking (and just nifty) postcard, and FIVE imps!

Juke Joint
Le Serpent Qui Danse
Jack
Lady Macbeth
Delirium

And let me say, Le Serpent Qui Danse in the bottle, I've taken a big whiff of it just now and my first thought was: bubble solution! (you know, to make bubbles with), my second thought was generic liquid soap. I dunno, that's all I'm getting, I'm afraid to try it on. Anybody out there tried it before?

I'm not looking for anything specific and I'm willing to try just about anything once. I have a definite love of the Picnic in Arkham stuff, though.

My very favorite scent is vanilla, so between the other Monster Baits and this, it's been a great BPAL month.

Monsterbait: BiggerCritterCollapse )

I'm a bit ill right now (thus, why I'm actually doing a review instead of being at work or packing for my move, so I'm hoping that the soap thing will go away later. If it does, I'll officially have a new favorite BPAL.

Reviews for Tokyo Stomp and Bloody Mary shortly!

Two quick reviews: Zephyr and Nanshe
Zephyr

A gentle white scent, breezes laced with the scent of springtime blooms and citrus. Lemon, lemon verbena, neroli, white musk, white florals, white sandalwood, China musk, bergamot and a drop of vanilla.

Category: Bewitching Brews

In imp: light and airy, with something clean and a little sharp smelling. Citrus?

On skin: same. It's like a nicer version of The Body Shop's Cozy Cashmere, which has TOO sharp a note in it at first. It dries down to something like fresh-scent fabric softener. Better than it sounds, but nothing I care for all that much. I think I may have swapped this one away already.


Nanshe

The Babylonian Goddess of Dreams, who bestows the power of Oneiromancy onto her priests. This blend opens up psychic sensitivity during sleep and aids in the understanding and correct interpretation of portents and symbols.

Category: Somnium

In imp: lemon and lavender.

On skin: lemon and lavender and something... urgh. Something kind of unpleasantly herbal. I don't like it at first. Or later, really, though later it mellows to something wearable. It's similar to Arcana, which I was also unimpressed by. It does, however, seem to "work", if you believe in that sort of thing -- I remembered my dreams quite clearly the nights I wore this, though I can usually remember my dreams clearly if I simply intend to. This one got swapped away, too, though if you like lavender you'd probably find it far more pleasant than I did.

Hello!
I just wanted to say hi and thanks for the invite! I'm looking forward to much swapping.

I don't have a list at the moment, because I'm in the middle of quitting my job and moving back to my hometown. I have a LOT of decants to go through -- for the last few months, I've been buying from circles and barely sniffing them. So in about a month, my list will be fierce.

One thing I am looking for (and would swap just about anything for) is some Schwarzer Mond. My precious bottle leaked completely out during a plane trip. :( :( :(

Wish List!
I am at work and have not got my list of what I've got, but I thought I'd toss out what I was interested in, just in case someone has got one of these buring a hole in their collections! ^_~

  • Arcana
  • Jezebel
  • Calliope
  • Bastet
These are all so popular, I doubt anyone would want to part with an imp, but no harm in tossing it out there, right?

I will be posting my tradable list in the next day or so!

11 reviews - short and sweet
Reposted from my personal journal.

Darkness, Cheshire Cat, Haunted, Zephyr, Villain, Twilight, Lust, Tintagel, Blood Countess, Blood Lotus, PenthusCollapse )

Verdict is most are up for trade. Some have been traded already. I fell in love with Tintagel and ordered a large bottle, but that's the only one of the lot that got that far. I would probably use the Lust and Zephyr imps, but if people want them, I'll let them go.

For Trade: Darkness, Cheshire Cat, Haunted, Zephyr, Villain, Twilight, Lust
