Imminent perfume sale/giveaway


Posted at 19 Aug 2008 12:39:32 PM

I did some work on the website. You can edit your own comments again, as well as properly reply to other peoples'. Fixed some bizarre miscellaneous stuff as well.. it's doubtful that anyone will notice most of it.

Random thoughts re: BPAL: I've got vials of more than one fragrance now (I used to wear Morgause, or non-BPAL). Since getting a vial of Zorya (finally!) I've started wearing other things as well... Lady of Shallot specifically, as I love the theme almost as much as I love the fragrance. Am thinking rather definitively about getting a vial or two of it.

Apropos of the limited edition Hallowe'en 2008 scents:
SAMHAIN 2008
Truly the scent of autumn itself -- damp woods, fir needle, and black patchouli with the gentlest touches of warm pumpkin, clove, nutmeg, allspice, sweet red apple and mullein.

I am thinking that this could either smell AMAZING, or like an ambulatory pumpkin pie strolling through a raver's private forest. Can't decide whether finding out is worth the price of an imp...

STICKY PILLOWCASE
Terminal sugar rush. A little goblin's candy bag, upended.

Smushed candy corn, rock candy dust, marshmallow gunk, strawberry goo, spun blue sugar, globs of salt water taffy, and lint.


Oh. My. God. What? I can't even imagine how that must smell. I'm going into insulin shock just reading the description!

FEARFUL PLEASURE
Dried orange peels floating in simmering cider, roasted apples, smoldering firewood, chimney smoke, sassafras beer, warm hawthorn wood, and oakmoss.

Hmmmm. I kind of want to try this one, too!


----> Item of Potential Interest:
I am thinking that a Great Sorting-Out of the Perfume Basket on the bathroom sink is in order. It currently holds, at a very rough guess, maybe 30 or so bottles of perfumes. I actually wear the following: Morgause (vial), Zorya (vial), Lady of Shallot (imp), Bess (rarely; imp), Jasmine oil (glass vial w/ roller ball), Vanille (glass vial w/ roller ball). Sometimes I'll use my B&BW body sprays.

8 out of 30, and it's the TINY 8 -- I'm not using any of the space-hogging larger bottles. That's not a terribly good ratio, and it doesn't make for a good explanation of why my crap is eating the bathroom counter alive.


SO. The next time I remember, which may or may not be tonight given that it's T5 night in SSC, I will make a list of all of the perfume that I don't wear. It will be listed here and on LJ. If anyone wants to try anything new, watch this space for updates!
