Bpal lists

Most of my friendslist is rather familliar with Bpal, but I'll explain for the few who aren't. Basically, it's a perfume website. http://www.blackphoenixalchemylab.com/ They have some really awesome sounding scents, and some really crazy sounding ones. The thing that grabbed my attention the most was that they had alot of odd scents formulated to evoke some sort of imagery, be it a christmas myth, a haunted house, or a certain character from a book. I found that really nifty, so I took a look through the website. Also, I have a lot of friends that talk about it constantly, which makes it hard to keep away from.

I'm really bad at picking out scents that I like just from the description, though. T_T I love Issey Miyake's A Drop on a Petal, but I have no clue what it smells like. XD;;; I know I tend to like florals more than spice/musk/herbal scents, I like teas, "ocean" or "water" smells, sometimes citrus smells, and sometimes food scents (but not too often, as I find I get sick of them). I also tend to like smells that make me think of blue or green. (But not in a mint, pine, or grass way.)

So yeah. Most likely I'm going to tackle people who live near me who have scents I want to smell and sniff them. XDD I made a list of what perfumes at Bpal I'm most interested in, just so I can keep track of them. Not even all of them are things I'd even be interested in wearing... just curious as to how they smell. XD
