Finally the BPAL lupercalia update it’s live.Check it out here! I have been stalking the site all week now! I love reading updates from my favorite companies. Usually, I read the notes one time and then I write down the most interesting scents so, I can make notes and decide which one I want to try. Then I order samples from live journal. There are a lot of people who make decants for huge updates. This sport it can be expensive and addictive as full decant may cost 4 to 5.5 USD. Some people do half decants too or even set of sniffies which are 1\4 full.
This update is full of roses, honey, amber and jasmine!
What is more there are perfumes inspired by Catullus! I love Catullus is one of my favorites poets. I am so excited!
This is why I decided to re-try one of Catullus inspired scents from last year!
PERFUME : My sweetest Lesbia
AVAILABILITY: Limited, Lupercalia 2012: Love Poems
OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: Osmanthus, hay absolute, ambergris accord, catnip, and Egyptian musk
BEFORE I SMELL: Like I said I love Catullus, the notes don’t matter lol.
FROM THE DECANT/BOTTLE: Osmanthus and catnip. It reminds me a men’s perfume.
WET ON SKIN: I also get a citrus note but not fruity. Maybe it’s the hay absolute in combination with the catnip. The ambergris give a salty note to the scent.
DRY DOWN: Feels expensive. Definitely a unique scent. As it dries down the Agyptian musk becomes apparent. Unisex and Long lasting.
FINAL THOUGHTS: It’s nice but not exactly what I reach for every day use.
