naamah_darling: The right-side canines of a wolf's skull; the upper canine is made of gold. (Cain)
Dear sweet fucking Christ, I just tried BPAL's Rivet.Goth and . . . fuck me if it isn't the exact smell of the biggest, baddest werewolf I know. Leather, rust, axle grease, and come-fuck-me. HI THERE CAIN. LONG TIME NO SNIFF.

Goddammit.

In other lycanthropic news, I have an awesome little werewolf-themed alphabetical acrostic rhyme written, all except for the LAST LETTER, because there is no word I can come up with that starts with Z or a Z sound, which isn't completely inappropriate. "Zero" or "zeal" or "zenith" is the best I can do, and they just aren't as strong as I would like.

Alphabetical rhymes are almost guaranteed to have weak endings, what with Y and Z providing so few options.

This comes up because as I've been practicing my hand flips and so on, I keep track of how I'm doing not by counting -- I dislike numbers -- but by reciting Edward Gorey's "The Chinese Obelisks." (A was an author who went for a walk, B was a bore who engaged him in talk. . . .) I also use that one as a mental relaxation exercise before going to sleep. I am rapidly going to get tired of it, and wanted to come up with my own alphabet rhyme, that I might remain amused.

This is not as easy as it sounds.

Z, at the zenith of . . . AAARGH. GODDAMMIT.

I am going to go buy some blackberry wine and then get to drawing.

Goddammit.

Yesterday, Sargon asked me to put together a box of boy-flavored BPAL for him to play with.

Ponder that. Sargon. A man. Willingly subjecting himself to my perfumed mercies. I am so incredibly tickled.

So I spent part of today in the company of the lovely [livejournal.com profile] bat_cheva, chatting randomly and pulling out about 35 dudely scents for him to try.

Now he smells like Schwarzer Mond.

Why, yes, I do spoil him.

Anyway, to celebrate, and to get me back on my Thursday BPAL-posting schedule (shut up, it's Thursday still, because I haven't slept yet) below the cut are a handful of random reviews: Omen, Vice, Bliss, Anathema, Aureus, Lampades, Mag Mell, Old London, Les Bijoux, Zephyr, and Lysander.

On to reviews! )

I will close by asking you to share your manly scent recommendations, if you have any. What do you put on your guy? Or maybe that should be "What would you put on your guy if he'd let you?"

I really need to stop using Roman numerals, because eventually it's going to get ridiculous. But I like the look of them, so . . . they stay until I no longer know how to count with letters.

Reviews of Phantasm, Languor, Venom, Shadow, Darkness, Delirium, Delight, and Bien Loin d'Ici are below.

Regular BPAL perfume reviews are below. We've got Pele, The Apothecary, Mata Hari, Black Forest, Ra, Khepera, Ahathoor, and Tum below the cut.

Reviews under here! )

In other BPAL news, I'm having a fit because I have discovered I love Nahemoth, which has been discontinued; I am now seeking another bottle of it. Needless to say, if any of you has a bottle that you are willing to part with, please let me know.

Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] weaselmom!

I got the package yesterday with the beautiful box full of tons o' BPAL. Rest assured I will distribute it wisely.

Actually, I was thinking of enabling a couple of friends with the imps, but holding on to the big bottles for my next round of charity auctions, or for a mini-auction, if that's okay with you.

I love the box, by the way. I have nothing like it, and one of my ammo racks fits right inside it, perfectly! So now it's holding all my waiting-to-be-tried scents and sitting next to me at the computer table. Huzzah! And I loved the bat card.

To the rest of you, thank you for being so supportive and so kind in the recent onslaught of crap. I had a really rough day yesterday for more reasons than just the obvious. I'm sorry I had to disable comments on the last entry, I just didn't feel up to it. But thank you to all of those who sent notes or just positive vibes. It makes a difference.

I'm still not quite myself today, but I'm better than I expected to be. Thank you.

Thank You!

It's Thursday -- barely -- so it must be time for more Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab perfume reviews. This time, it's a mixed bag.

Below are reviews of Sophia, Arcana, Shattered, Jester, Tempest, Lightning, Inferno, and Thanatos.

Reviews. )

I'm excited because I got my Click 'n' Ship notice today for the first order I placed this month. It should be in my paws on Saturday, I hope hope hope! I don't even remember whatall is in it, but this way it's like a surprise!

More Black Phoenix reviews. I owe them at least half my soul by now. Yes.

Below the cut are reviews of Fortunato, Monster Bait: Ventriloquist's Dummy, and the four following Dogs Playing Poker LEs: Riding the Goat, His Station with Four Aces, Pinched with Four Aces, and A Bachelor's Dog.

Reviews below! )

A good batch, especially the dogs scents. Too bad they were extremely LE and I only have half imps.

So, what's your favorite scent you only have a limited supply of?

It's Thursday! And a batch of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab reviews is on the plate. Some Ars Draconis oils are here, and a few random scents I just liked a lot.

Without further ado, below you will find reviews of Dragon's Musk, Dragon's Tears, Dragon's Claw, Dragon's Eye, Dragon's Heart, Dragon's Reverie, Ladon, Horreur Sympathique, The High Priest Not To Be Described, Nyarlathotep, and Chimera.

Reviews this way! )

And that's all for now.

The wonderful [livejournal.com profile] topknot sent me a bottle of Monster Bait: Bloody Mary, which I love despite passing on it at the time based on the notes. This just goes to show that you can't always be sure of a blend based on what you read.

That said, I put in an order for Nahemoth, my "namesake" oil; I haven't smelled it, but I feel obligated to buy it before all the Tarot, Sephiroth, and Qliphoth oils go bye-bye at the next full moon. Besides, from all the descriptions, it sounds like something I would like.

I'm getting a 12-pack of imps, and true to form, I ordered them and then promptly forgot what I'd ordered. I remember Bien Loin d'Ici, Calico Jack, The Music of Erich Zann, and an imp of the new Misk. U., but nothing else. The rest will just be a surprise!

It's been ages since I've ordered from the Lab, and I'm excited again. I miss it.

What's everyone else got on order?
