Bpal- The Lurid Library

PERFUME: The Lurid Library

COMPANY: Bpal

AVAILABILITY: Halloweenie 2012

OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: The incense-tinged scent of forbidden tomes and the musk-laden remnants of infernal servants.

BEFORE I SMELL: When a scent is as popular as this one, I want to try it anyway to see what all the fuss is about. With this one it’s not only that. I love libraries and the smell of old books fascinates me.

FROM THE DECANT/BOTTLE: Pale sandalwood and incense. It does smell like an old book! It also reminds me a men’s cologne a little bit. So the final verdict it’s that it is the scent of a sexy librarian!  
It has an autumnal feel to it too. Like when you are reading in a library and then you go out and suddenly starts to rain.
It reminds me my years at the Uni…

WET ON SKIN: This is a very soft fragrance. Woods and cologne it’s what I get.

DRY DOWN:  Woody musk, soft leather and faint incense.I think I smell frankincense too Stays close to the skin. Low silage and longevity...

FINAL THOUGHTS: I really like this one on the decant but it doesn’t stay on my skin.  I love how it recreated an atmosphere though. If this was stronger it would be a winner!

IF YOU LIKE THIS YOU WILL LIKE:   Bpal- Philologus

  1. The scent of a sexy librarian! Sign me up. I think I have a single BPAL imp in my entire stash, and I've never even sniffed it - but I do love the sound of this one. I'm with you on loving library/old book scents. There's just something kind of comforting about them.

    1. Bpal can be a serious addiction, so you are lucky to have only one! I totally agree with you library/ols book scents have something comforting, like you are sitting on the couch, drinking tea and reading a good book on a winter day...

    1. If this one lasted longer on the skin, it would be so good! Bpal has other library scents in their general catalog like:
      PHILOLOGUS
      Ancient books, crackled parchment, faded incense, and candle wax
      AND
      THE BOOK
      Old, yellowed parchment paper, tattered leather bindings. There's a distinct warmth to the scent, though it is ancient and brittle.

    1. I love their Halloween scents. I hope they will Samhain back so you can order a bottle!
      Usually, their Halloween upadate comes in late August.
