My sweetest Lesbia-BPAL


harpers.org



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

COMPANY: BPAL

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.

  1. Just saw the BPAL update. What no Womb Furie and Smut??? Good thing I stocked up on it last year. This year, there is nothing I really want. Corinna and Unveil The Grace In Thine Eyes sounds interesting. Let us know what you end up getting decants of :)

    1. Yay I noticed that too. I still have a full bottle of Womb Furie but not Smut. I was planning to get it. Last year it wasn't good on me but aging has donne wonders to my decant!
      I haven't decided what I want yet... The two that you mentioned are in my list, The chocolates, Delight and Consternation, En Eski Asksiiri and some more!

  2. I'm seriously scared to try any bpal perfumes because there's so many and a lot of them sound so pretty. I feel like I need to give the perfumes I already own more love before I start buying much more other perfumes, but it's very tempting!

    That's a good idea to write down the perfumes that interest you the most in order to narrow it down. I had to do that with all the Halloween perfume collections (but I still bought too many!).

    This bpal update sounds awesome- perfect for Valentine's day, and I love the inspiration behind it!

    1. You should try their perfumes someday, especially the ones from the Halloween update you will love them!

      You have right to be scared thought! With so many updates Bpal sometimes becomes very addictived. I know I am doomed!
