Reviews of my sample order

First let me say that I am not the best describer of fragrance. Second, my skin can do strange and unpleasant things to scent. I have tried around 18 BPAL scents and would not order bottles of any of them and only kept 3 of the samples, swapping away 15.

 

Now for my order:

 

Heart of Kapet - This is the only one I did not try on skin. One sniff had me thinking sweet and head shoppy. Will swap.

 

Hecate's Night Potion - The creamy woods description got me, but this was not creamy woods on my skin. Not horrible though. Will swap.

 

Dark Seductions™ - This started out great, soft violet well blended with other elements and not smelling like violet candies. But violet is cruelly ephermal. While I loved the beginning it ended smelling like men's cologne on me. I am almost tempted to keep the sample to put on right before meeting someone for coffee or another brief encounter. To its credit, this stayed pretty much longer than Tom Ford's super expensive violet scent.

 

Cleopatra's Blend 2008 - I like rose scents, but they rarely rock my world once my skin gets involved. This is not the fresh spring day rose scent, but it is not one that gets too heavy, sweet, dusty, or powdery either. A good Fall or Winter rose to wear. I don't see me buying it, but I will not be swapping my sample, I'll definitely use it again.

 

 

Phero Girl Cougar - Granted I only used a dab, but I did not notice any change in male behavior. Perhaps if I had been on a date and someone had a reason to be close that would change. As for the scent, the grapefruit did not get harsh or cat-pissy and the sugary aspects did not become hyper sweet. This scent stayed fairly constant throughout and I could still notice it 3 hours later without making an effort to. Not like anything I normally wear, but a nice hot weather scent, I will keep and use this sample as well.

 

 

Wish Craft - I have seen quite a few wisteria, I can not say that I have ever smelled one, so I do not know how accurate the scent is. I can pick up the Freesia, but it does not get too agressive as Freesia can. This is like a fresh spring day. It makes me think of wild flowers on hillsides and laundry billowing in the breeze. Perfect for a hot day. SOLD!

 

 

I was very impressed that all of these had nice sillage withouth being overwhelming.

 

So, 3 swaps, 2 keeps, 1 purchase. For me that is an amazingly good track record.
