BPAL – Envy, Twilight, The Lovers


bq. _”Green herbs slithering through mint, lime and lavender.”_

A swap from Sarah. She described it and I said, that sounds like me, I’ll give it a try.

Smells weird in the bottle (sorry, i’m not going to try any harder than that), but once on quickly becomes minty goodness! not exactly a replacement for my favorite mint scent, Tulzscha (which happens to be a limited edition and therefore finite in its minty cucumbery goodness), but i can tell this will be very pleasing on days when it’s hot and sticky and i want the mintyness.

Yay, deadly sins!!


bq. _”An enigmatic, otherworldly scent, brimming with power and mystery. Lavender and jasmine, with a touch of glowing honeysuckle.”_

Now that I read this, I can smell the lavendar and jasmine, but before i was mostly thinking “cleaning product” whenever I sniffed it.

If only it really did smell like honeysuckle. Now that I could be down with, but not this. Off to the swaps.

*Tarot: The Lovers*

The tarot scents don’t have descriptions, but reviews described this as cinnamon, herbal sweet and fruity. I was pretty hyped to try this. The tarot scents are also only sold as large 10mm bottles (although interestingly, this was in an imp from the lab– must have been a freebie).

Sadly, this smelled just awful on me. Not even remotely like any of the things in reviews; mainly it was soapy, but with some quality that gave me a nasty ache in the back of my throat. I had to wash it off.

No Love for me. I hope The Star works out better– it’ll be coming my way in a couplea weeks.
