bpal--jailbait

well, i am officially jumping on the bpal bandwagon, since i finally retrieved various packages from the ups plant today, including a shipment of imps. of course the first one i tried was jailbait, described as Sticky pink bubblegum and the thick, sweet scent of orange and cherry lollipops smeared over a breath of heady womanly perfume.

on opening the bottle, my first reaction was "whoa, cough drops!" the cherry smell was definitely prominent, though there was some floral going on too. a few minutes after i applied it, the cherry faded a tiny bit and a little bit of cinnamon came through--it smelled like red hots, jsut before the really hot part starts. that's not a bad thing--i couldn't stop sniffing my wrist!

after a half hour or so, the cherry had pretty much gone, and a warm spicy scent was left--very nice!

8 hours later there's an indistinct pleasant smell, if i sniff my wrist really hard. :) i think i like this one a lot, though obviously i haven't got anything to compare it to. luckily i have a little tin full of imps to try out!

oh man - cough drops! I've been reading about Sarah and Lisa's experiments with BPAL and it sounds very compelling. But since I get a headache from most scents, I should probably resist the temptation.

actually, most perfumes bother me--i get headaches or they make me sneeze. i do wear perfume regularly but it's the first one i've worn in about 5 years, so i was curious to see what these bpal things smelled like. you're welcome to try any of mine if they sound appealing (maybe the initial cough drop smell doesn't sound appealing, but it got nice after that).

i definitely think we need to have a sniff fest this summer, especially since between you, me, and sarah, we actually appear to have very little overlap.

sounds good to me--i have quite a motley assortment and some more on the way.

i think we all will have pink moon though, which of course is a good thing. :)

actually... sarah's pink moon went to my friend stephanie (in illinois). but i tried it before i sent it, liked it, and now not only do i have an imp, but i just purchased a 5ml from someone last night.

you're right, pink moon is our vector :)

i'm hoping ooh la will open back up-- that would be the perfect place for sniffs.
