BPAL reviews

Mostly for me. More reviews of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab.

Name: Forbidden Fruits
Scents: Lotus, flowers, amber, citrus
Thoughts: I really wanted to like this one. I did. However it is just plain nasty on me. My first impression was of cotton candy covering a sharper unpleasant scent. It dried to a weird mixture of sweet covering a rotten fruit smell that would assault my nose occasionally. Yuck. Definitely not.

Name: Siren
Scents: White ginger, jasmine, vanilla, apricot
Thoughts: Another one I really wanted to like and hated. Too sharp and frankly, smells very masculine on me. No.

Name: Dorian
Scents: Three pale musks and dark, surgared vanilla tea
Thoughts: Nice. A little masculine for me at first but then, it fades to a nice vanilla with a hint of musk. I like it. Definitely keep the imp (Ximena's scent?), maybe buy 5ml bottle. I'm interested in what it would smell like on a guy. Maybe.

Name: Hunger
Scents: Black narcissus, orange blossom, vanilla
Thoughts: I wanted to like it but no. The black narcissus is too strong. A few hours later, I liked it but I don't like it enough to endure the black narcissus. No.

Name: Gluttony
Scents: Dark chocolate, vanilla, buttercream, hops with pralines, hazelnut, toffee, caramel
Thoughts: No. Too sweet and strong at first. Then, too much buttery scent. Now, it is drying into what smells like a burnt cookie smell. Just plain yucky on me. No.
