HALLOWEEN PERFUMES-LE REVENANT/ BPAL

The Halloween BPAL update is LIVE!!!! I need almost 10 of them but I have to wait till I win the lottery lol!!
Thankfully these will stay up until December so, we have a little more time to save up.
Reading the whole update I noticed that I already have some of these scents and I thought to retest them.



PERFUME:LE REVENANT 2011

COMPANY: BPAL

AVAILABILITY: Halloween limited edition, original in 2011 but it has been re-released this year so you can find it at the Bpal site until December!

OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION:A shroud of gardenia, narcissus, and sandalwood with ambrette seed, white cognac, muguet, davana, and white musk

BEFORE I SMELL: I see Baudelaire and white florals and my mind goes WANT NOW. That unfortunately doesn't always mean that the scent will  work on me...

FROM THE DECANT/BOTTLE: From the imp this one it's very elegant and feminine. Reminds me the women I see sometimes all dressed up and then they come by this is the perfume that you aspect them to wear. Floral and a little bit soapy.

WET ON SKIN: The muguet it's the most obvious note. I also get something green maybe it's the narcissus and the davana. This gardenia note, it's similar to the one Arcana use's in the Moonflower's bliss perfume. It's greener and sharper than the actual flower.

DRY DOWN: This one doesn't have a good staying power on me neither a good silage. After 3 hours it's almost gone. The dry down is musky sandalwood with a hind of white floral.

FINAL THOUGHTS: If you are looking for something to smell like Chanel or another conventional perfume, I think this is for you. It's very nice and if you work in an office or with other people and you need something that most people like and find it inoffensive, this is the one because it's light and stays close to the skin.
As for me, I've already have musky white florals so I don't need a full bottle of this.


What do you think about Bpals new update? Any must haves?

    1. Rachel YES!!! They re-released it! I thought of you immediately when I saw the update:) They also have a new scent Samhain in the Pumpkin patch!
      Muguet it's green and powdery to my nose. I love how the real flower smells but it doesn't always smell good on me, it gets a little bit like a cologne or a vintage perfume. It also reminds me some green chypre perfumes that I have smelt. It's another name of lily of the valley.

    2. Oh geez, we need to win the lottery together because I want too much stuff! Thank goodness I finally got a better job that has hours, so I will be able to get Samhain before Decemer and finally send Nadja some perfumes. :)

      Thanks for letting me know what muguet smells like- I haven't heard of it before :)
