So I’m forcing myself to work through all the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab scents I got at Dragon*Con instead of just wearing Red Rider every day until I die so I can always and forever smell like a sexy leather clad spice merchant.
For the record, Red Rider:
She went a little further and again she heard the sound of a horse’s hoofs and there came another man on horseback galloping past her. He was dressed all in red, and the horse under him was blood-red and its harness was red, and just as he passed her the sun rose.

Red leather, red moss, and balsam.
My pants, guys. And it’s a Vasilisa reference. And red leather. This scent is like a tactical missile at all my wants. If it came with a picture of Iron Man on the bottle I’d be pretty sure someone was stalking my fantasies.
Anyway I’ve been wearing this every day since D*C and I bought a large bottle of it and soon it’ll be gone and I’ll cry/buy more, but I have about 10 imps I also got at D*C and I should actually work through them and review. SO.
Today I’m wearing Spellbound.
Perfectly enchanting! An irresistibly sexual, utterly rapturous blend of three roses, radiant amber, and sensual red musk.
And I’m sad. Even all the reviews talk about how enchanting and lusty it is, and in the bottle it smells DELICIOUS, but I’m having the exact same experience with it that I had with one of my favorite smells of all time, Shalimar by Guerlain. In the bottle and on every other woman on the planet, it smells like sexy musky incense, all Mati Hari fantasies and whatnot. On me?
baby powder. i smell like a fat sexy baby.
Something about those incensey smells go straight to powder on me. I’m so sad. Luckily I’m showering again today before a photoshoot I’m doing with a friend so I’ll probably wear something different again today.

  1. BPAL is the BEST!!!! The red rider sounds amazing, i hate being poor :p anyways, my favorite scent is La Petit Mort. Yes I know what it means LOL. been wearing this since college first year. need a new bottle XD mine is really old.

    Seduction, sensuality, the Act, and the aftermath all in one. The scent of warm, damp skin flushed with the glow of passion, touched by the luxuriant potency of ylang ylang and myrrh.

    2nd fav is one i have an imp of, also super old but i love it

    Deep, luscious green and berry scents that evoke images of woodland witchcraft and the raw power of nature: blackberry, sage, green tea, wild berries and dark musk.

    A lot of other scents I've been disappointed in too :( I got Samhain one year and it was sounding all wonderful, I don't like it. It gave
    me a headache and diddnt smell fall like at all.

    Jack was good but too strong to wear.

    had some interesting things with other scents too, but wohoo for BPAL!!!!
