I haven't done any scent blogging for ages (about a year actually) mostly because I hit a limit of how many scents I was interested in. I have about 6 I'm really really fond of and quite a few more that I really like, and just wasn't terribly interested in trying more. Actually, I'm still not really, but when the weather turned into autumn (chill in the air) I re-found my favourite scents (it's been too hot to wear most of my scents, they're mostly cold weather sort of scents) I suddenly felt like having a proper autumn scent.

BPAL makes seasonal perfume oils and this one sounded like it could be good:

Samhain: Truly the scent of autumn itself -- damp woods, fir needle, and black patchouli with the gentlest touches of warm pumpkin, clove, nutmeg, allspice, sweet red apple and mullein.

It starts off a bit murky, definitely getting the fir and the woods
in there. Then slowly the pumpkin and the spices come through, like walking toward a house in the forest on a cold day when the leaves are colouring. It mellows out to a really wonderful vanilla-ish baking type scent. I keep pressing my nose in the crook of my elbow and taking a deep sniff. Soooo good.
The great BPAL perfume oil sales post

Two imps with an AAA battery for reference.

If you've been wondering about http://www.blackphoenixalchemylab.com/ here's a chance.. I sorted out my swap box, and there's a list of the samples I want to sell HERE

I might be selling these because they didn't really work for me or because I liked them but didn't really wear them. Some of them are more masculine scents.

To look up full descriptions, use this tracker
To look at loads of scent reviews, see the BPAL forum. If you have trouble navigating, at the very bottom of a result page in the above mentioned tracker is a 'search for review forum' function.

These are 'imps' - 1 ml samples of perfume oils. They are 2 euro per imp unless there's a comment in the 'full' column. Postage for up to 7 imps is 2.50 euro within Europe and 3.50 outside. It goes up slightly with more imps, but the main weight is the packaging material. Please pick at least 3 imps to help preserve my sanity. I'll sell the entire batch for 50 euro including shipping. Payment is via non-creditcard paypal.

The empties are free, like a sample of a sample. I'll give some with a sale. If you have a preference, let me know.

If you want help or advice about picking scents, let me know. Figuring out what works for you is a large part of the fun of BPAL
