Michael by Michael Kors

Top notes are freesia, incense, chinese osmanthus and tamarind; middle notes are tuberose, iris, peony, orris root and arum lily; base notes are musk, cashmere wood and vetiver.

This is a very sweet white floral. The tuberose is almost a gardenia dupe. Josh cried almost instant headache, so I didn't leave it on long enough for the dry down, but I could just start to smell the woodiness of the iris start to tamp down the florals before I scrubbed it.

Clean (the original)

This soap-inspired scent combines litsea cubeba, orange, sweet lime, pink grapefruit, passion lily, rose geranium, and white musk and is perfect for women who enjoy crisp, subtly. It opens with a bright burst of freshness and dries down to a simply CLEAN scent.

This does smell fresh and clean. Very bright and citrusy but very sweet (must be the sweet lime). I don't get any orange or grapefruit, but I do smell rose geranium (yummy) and soap. Clean is a good descriptor. I would like to smell this on someone else, but it's not for me. I passed it to a friend.

BPAL Rapunzel

Angel’s trumpet, bois de rose, orris, and wild lettuce.

I really like this. It smells green and sweet and a little of rose. Josh detects a note of ginger. It's a keeper!

I would prefer to swap, but I didn't get many takers last time, so even if you don't have anything to swap, the following are up for grabs. At this point, I'd rather get these gone than wait on a swap.

Armani Code
2 Alien by Thierry Mugler samples
2-3 ml sample Guerlain Angelique Noire
Eau de Cologne Crepe de Chine F. Millot
3.5 ml Michael by Michael Kors

New Orleans
Incipient Madness
Lexamin de Minuit

Came over by way of [community profile] smellsgood. The headache from Michael seems to be a common thing. I ended up with one after testing it, and a few other people I know have had the same issue.

Has anyone claimed Incipient Madness yet? I don't have anything up for swap, unless you wanted to try Yorick or Rogue. (My collection makes meager look wealthy.)

I would definitely be interested, I'm always willing to try out new BPALs out. I'll message you my details.

Thank you.

And they came! (Yesterday, I'm a day late posting this.) New Orleans took a hike in the bag, but the last few drops were enough for me to decide I will most likely splurge on another imp to make a decision on a bottle. (Though, it has been over 105 the last few days, so I'm not surprised at least one of them gave.)

Everyone else was safe and sound after a clean up. :D

I'd love the Michael sample and the Angelique Noire (and if you have no other takers I'll also take one of the Alien samples). Would you be interested in any of the Alkemia samples in this post besides Bohemiens (which I want to keep)? I also have a 1 ml vial of Sarah Jessica Parker Lovely that's about 75% full, and a 1 ml vial of Narciso Rodriguez For Her EDT that's about half full. And a ton of BPAL samples, let me know if you want me to type up a list or are looking for something in particular. Thanks!

Pretty sure I have the Old Goblin somewhere. Will go through either this evening or tomorrow and give you a proper list. I'd happily take the Crepe de Chine too if nobody else wants it. But if you get another taker, go ahead and give it to them.

You're quick! Received your package yesterday evening, thank you! All in order. Do you just want the BPALs, or were you interested in any of the other things I mentioned previously? Will mail the package off tomorrow or Tuesday Wednesday (holiday oops).

My turn to be sorry: had a hectic week last week, so didn't send your package till this morning. But it's on its way now, should be with you in a couple of days. I threw in a couple other bits that I found when I was going through my stash, I hope that's okay. Apologies for the delay!
