Scent: Séance
Description: A mysterious, enigmatic blend of dry, mellow rosewood, crushed rose leaf and the slightest touch of warm hazel.
Thoughts: Odd but does smell like what I would imagine a séance smelling like. Fortunately, the hazel isn't strong. I don't get the "food" scent from it. It's a good character scent.
Buy: No.

Scent: The Bow & Crown of Conquest
Description: And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. Nobility and haughtiness befitting the Antichrist: sage, carnation and cedar with lavender, vanilla, white musk and leather.
Thoughts: I don't know why I like this scent but I do. I think it is the mixture of lavender, vanilla and leather. I think this would be a great scent on a guy. Definitely a character scent.
Buy: No.

Scent: Verdandi
Description: The Norse Sister-Goddesses of destiny, who measure the lives and fortunes of both Gods and Men and hold steady the ineffable laws of the cosmos. They are preservers and protectors of the Tree of Life and the Well of Fate, and give assistance during the birth of every mortal and divine creature. Verdandi is Necessity. Deep herbs and apple with black amber.
Thoughts: I do like this one. It's sweet and spicy. Not my usual scent. It is a bit too sweet for me. Definitely keeping the imp for a character scent or occasional change.

Scent: Wicked
Description: A paean to all the Wicked Queens, Evil Stepmothers, and other misunderstood villainesses throughout history and lore. Lends an aura of majesty, refinement, strength, and a deep, brooding malice. A sophisticated, womanly scent: rich myrrh and jasmine draped in the subtlest rose.
Thoughts: It is very sharp when I first put it on but it mellows out after about an hour into something much more enjoyable. "Womanly" is a very good adjective for this scent. Not one for everyday. Maybe for occasional nights or a character scent.
Buy: No.

I just noticed that my first BPAL review was exactly one year ago, today.
