So there is a new bpal inquesition 4 sents ..... any one interested   to see more click the picture,

The BPTP Goblin Four Seasons Inquest
Limited Edition Bath Oil, Perfume Oil, and Atmospheric Spray combo pack!
$49.00US

TAKE THE QUIZ
SKIP THE QUIZ AND MAKE A PLEA

NICE
Is your heart full of sunshine? Or does your spirit resemble a winter wind?

This is the Four Seasons Inquest!

The Trading Post Goblins have devised a scientifically accurate* examination designed to accurately determine the season that best represents you… the season in which you flourish, shine, and bloom. You may opt to take this quiz and purchase the pack that the Goblins deem appropriate for you, or you can plead your case the old-fashioned way!

For $49US, you will receive a Limited Edition perfume oil, bath oil, and atmosphere spray that expresses our interpretation - through these mediums - of one of the Four Seasons. The bath oils and atmosphere sprays are 4oz, and the perfume oil is 5ml.

The scents were created based on a number of inspirations... Alphonse Mucha's Seasons, Giuseppe Arcimboldo's Allegories, Vivaldi's Le quattro stagioni, and, of course, the essence of the seasons themselves. The perfume, bath oil, and atmosphere sprays coordinate with one another, but are not identical in scent. Our intention was to create a complete bath and atmospheric experience, and not simply layer the same scent again and again on top of itself. Goblins dig variety!


*Scientifically accurate in Goblin terms, of course. Which is pretty loose and debatable.

Has any one any interestin an imp of the following:

RED MOON(purchased)
August is a month of reflection. It is the month of rest before the harvest, and it holds for us a time between toils, a brief period of relaxation before we take up the burden of our work again. It is the Time of the Phoenix, a season of celebrating health, vitality, warmth and joy, but it is also the time at which the Corn God dies for the sake of the land, his blood soaking the earth to ensure a bountiful harvest in the fall.

The Full Red Moon of August was named thus by some Native American tribes because as the moon rises, it dons a reddish veil, visible through the hot, sweltering summer evening haze. Our blend for this Moon mixes traditional lunar oils with the warmth of amber, red musk, and heliotrope, the russet haze of dragon's blood resin, sunflower, and crushed orange peel, with a dusting of summertime herbs: chamomile, rue, elder flower and marigold.

LEO 2007(purchased)
Fixed Fire: the essence of pride.
Egyptian amber, walnut bark, chamomile, frankincense, and saffron.

- - -

Mine are the night and morning,
The pits of air, the gulf of space,
The sportive sun, the gibbous moon,
The innumerable days.

I hid in the solar glory,
I am dumb in the pealing song,
I rest on the pitch of the torrent,
In slumber I am strong.

THE SPORTIVE SUN (will be bought on 07.13.07)
Heliotrope, amber, almond flower, frangipani, cedar, and calamus.


THE GIBBOUS MOON
(will be bought on 07.13.07)
Moonflower, Madonna lily, orris, white ginger, cucumber, hyacinth, and Irish moss.

 
Also I got imps of
MISKATONIC UNIVERSITY - i've hear amazing good things about this
BLACK PHOENIX - how can you not get the orgignial
LIBERTINE - need we say more
ALICE - i just finished reading the looking glass wars and i am more than ever determined to try all the Mad Tea Party scents

Purple Phoenix - graple how can somethign smell purple

Bloody Sword - Spicy and a sweet - and astringent

Carfax Abbey - Mossy and cold
phoenix_arose: (3swords)
BPAL Anniversary Blend 2006: Purple Phoenix
Porphyrogenitus, indeed; we worked for it! Not simply the color of royalty, purple is also the color of sorrow and mourning, reconciliation and forgiveness. A regal, majestic, and somber blend of myrrh, plum blossom, African violet, cognac, fig, orris, lilac, wisteria, black plum, and Burgundy wine grapes.

Order of the Dragon: Carfax Abbey - 5ml
At Purfleet, on a byroad, I came across just such a place as seemed to be required, and where was displayed a dilapidated notice that the place was for sale. It was surrounded by a high wall, of ancient structure, built of heavy stones, and has not been repaired for a large number of years. The closed gates are of heavy old oak and iron, all eaten with rust.

The estate is called Carfax, no doubt a corruption of the old Quatre Face, as the house is four sided, agreeing with the cardinal points of the compass. It contains in all some twenty acres, quite surrounded by the solid stone wall above mentioned. There are many trees on it, which make it in places gloomy, and there is a deep, dark-looking pond or small lake, evidently fed by some springs, as the water is clear and flows away in a fair-sized stream. The house is very large and of all periods back, I should say, to mediaeval times, for one part is of stone immensely thick, with only a few windows high up and heavily barred with iron. It looks like part of a keep, and is close to an old chapel or church. I could not enter it, as I had not the key of the door leading to it from the house, but I have taken with my Kodak views of it from various points. The house had been added to, but in a very straggling way, and I can only guess at the amount of ground it covers, which must be very great. There are but few houses close at hand, one being a very large house only recently added to and formed into a private lunatic asylum. It is not, however, visible from the grounds."

The scent of abandoned places, of desolation and emptiness: heavy woods and thin dusty herbs touched by the wafting incense of a nearby chapel.

Order of the Dragon: the Bloody Sword - 5ml
Blood is too precious a thing in these days of dishonourable peace, and the glories of the great races are as a tale that is told.

A distillation of force, conquest, power and fury: dragon’s blood, myrrh, black pepper, labdanum, benzoin, leather, fire, and steel.


They are all in my mail box at home =(

i think i shall run home at lunch and fetch them forth ...... * crosses fingers* hope they smell good on me

From the Lab:MARCH HARE
A twisted teatime tart: apricot and sweet clove.

On me - > this is similar to Dorian - but less sexy smelling fruit and cloves apparently work for me
phoenix_arose: (Default)

BRISINGAMEN
The amber necklace of Freyja, Norse Goddess of Love, Sex, Attraction and Fruitfulness. Her magnificent necklace was bough from four Dwarves [Alfrik, Berling, Dvalin and Grer] at the price of four nights of her passion. When Brisingamen graces your throat, no man can resist your charms. A glittering mantle of rich golden notes: five ambers, soft myrtle and apple blossom, myrtle, and carnation



I'm going to have to try again - my nose is soo stuffed up i can't smell any thing
phoenix_arose: (3swords)


from the lab: Upon the Sea of Glass, glowing with the perfection of spiritual union and the radiance of true wisdom, rests the throne of God. A scent of inimitable purity, crystalline grace, and limitless light.
Bottle: Clean light
On Me->
Wet: clean zest soap
Drying: no change to speak of
Dry:
phoenix_arose: (Default)

from the lab:Who ARE you talking to?' said the King, going up to Alice, and looking at the Cat's head with great curiosity.
`It's a friend of mine--a Cheshire Cat,' said Alice: `allow me to introduce it.'
`I don't like the look of it at all,' said the King: `however, it may kiss my hand if it likes.'
`I'd rather not,' the Cat remarked.
`Don't be impertinent,' said the King, `and don't look at me like that!' He got behind Alice as he spoke.
`A cat may look at a king,' said Alice. `I've read that in some book, but I don't remember where.'
`Well, it must be removed,' said the King very decidedly, and he called the Queen, who was passing at the moment, `My dear! I wish you would have this cat removed!'
The Queen had only one way of settling all difficulties, great or small.
`Off with his head!' she said, without even looking round.
`I'll fetch the executioner myself,' said the King eagerly, and he hurried off.

Rosewood and black cherry with white musk, red rose, red musk and a spark of lavender.

Having had reasonable success with Dublin here we go
In the bottle:foody - cherries
On me->
wet:butter cherry tarts
Drying: light cherry, "food" smell is gone,and something else
Dry:powdery lavender smell no nasty soap smell .... This could be a keeper

Also this does mean there is hope - I have had 2 scents with rose in them that have not turned to nasty soap smell EDIT: end of day the nasty rose soap smell came back but that was at like 10 pm so I'd have it on for 12 hours or more
phoenix_arose: (3swords)


From the Lab:The scent of misty forests, damp alder leaf, and the gentlest touch of white rose.
In the bottle" light roses and woods
On me:
wet: oily evergreens
Drying: a light pleasant evergreen with a touch of light normal rose smell
Dry: woodsy - something for cold weather - it was 70 outside here the day that i tried it and it just didin't fit - also faded by the end of the day
phoenix_arose: (3swords)
From the Lab:
A scent that is both coquettish and sinister. Exotic and lush, brimming with grace and viciousness: almond with star jasmine, oakmoss, red sandalwood and Egyptian musk.
Bottle:
Sugared Almond cookies

On Me->
Wet: Almonds and something bitter
Drying: Musk and Jasmine take over and have run off the Almonds
Dry: bitter (oak moss???) and a nice mix of the others

By bitter I mean the smell has a bite to it
phoenix_arose: (3swords)
Tweedledee:

From the lab:Ridiculous! Kumquat, white pepper, white tea and orange blossom.
bottle Smells like fruit loops and the pepper is dancing in and out
on me
Wet more pepper than fruit loops
Drying this makes me feel hungry - and oranges
Dry sweet peppery tea

General thought- eh my be a summer thing and have a slight headache - don't know if it's from this
