Okay, I cracked, and ordered the perfume imps.

these ones:

Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heav'n. This is our song to Lucifer, Lucis Ferre, Heosphoros, the Morning Star, the Brilliant One and the Son of the Morning. He is equated with Samhazai, the Heaven-Seizer, and Azazel, one of the 200 Fallen Angels of Enoch. The essence of overweening pride and unearthly angelic beauty. A regal scent, glowing darkly, elegant and patrician, but unfathomably desolate. Cherubic white sandalwood and golden musk with a dark halo of amber, a breath of imperial florals, unbending woods, and the shadow cast by vetiver and violet.

An infusion of incalculable power and irresistible temptation. Truly an exercise in megalomania and self-gratification: frankincense and cinnamon, darkened by violet.

Thouroughly corrupted: amber, sandalwood, black patchouli and cinnamon.

An ancient blend, swollen with arcane power: galangal, high john essence, frankincense, cedar, and sandalwood.

The raw, untamable power of chaos. Rosewood, amber, red musk and a dribble of red sandalwood.

Grapefruit, red currant, dark musk, Roman chamomile, delphinium, and lavender.

Dark musk and black amber with frankincense, red sandalwood, neroli and bergamot.

A lazy, warm deep green scent with a thick aquatic undertone: Spanish moss, evergreen and cypress with watery blue-green notes and an eddy of hothouse flowers and swamp blooms.

A rich, bold blend of imperial rose, carnation, lush jasmine, lily of the valley, dark musk, amber, bergamot and gilded tangerine.

A gentlemen's blend, possessed of dignity, charm and refinement, but in truth masking a corrupted, hideous, soulless core. White musk, lime, lilac and citron.

Warrior, Trickster and Goddess of Magic and Poets, she is one of the Tuatha De Danaan and the Queen of the Faeries. A very complex scent, both shadowy and fierce: black orchid, sandalwood, night-blooming jasmine, osmanthus, Somalian rose, and Chinese musk.

Patron of the Aztec pantheon, he is the personification of light within darkness, warmth in the cold, and life in, and after, death. He is a creative and destructive God of Fire and Light, and is appeased only by sacrifice, trial, and the slaughter of his people's enemies. Copal, plumeria and sweet orange and the smoke of South American incense and crushed jungle blooms.

Dragon's Blood
The Lion
Ave Maria Gratia Plena
Anne Bonny

will wait for another sale, I think. Thanks for the opinions, guys. I really like lilac, sandalwood, rosewood, copra, nag champa, frankincense, dragonsblood, ylang-ylang, amber, and so forth, so we'll see how it goes. Based just on descriptions, I'm expecting to like Fallen, Faustus, Sin, Magus, and Fenris Wolf best.


Those sound nummy.
maybe we can swap at some point. *g*
Maybe when I've ordered some...or we go do oils for soaps, or something. I'm big into scented soaps.
What? No Blood Amber? That has dragon's blood and amber in it. :)
*g* I figured I had enough blends with both--and I **know** what dragon's blood mixed with amber smells like!
Nooo! We've lost Bear to BPAL! *sings* Another one bites the dust...

So far, I've eluded the BPAL trap. But names like "Whitechapel," (BWAH!!!!!!!) make it really hard to resist.

Will. Not. Assimilate.
Heee. Well, it'll keep me out of the head shops. *g*
*latches onto Rae's arm*

*bombs her with BPAL*
*Rae the Ripper*
Come on Rae, You know you wanna. I could send you a couple of imps to get you started. (I am an evil woman) We could set up our own little swap network and everything.
You are evil and you must be destroyed.
You know you love me.
I used to have that scent, but passed in on to robyno. But if your interested in sniffing some of the other blends, I could send you a couple. But I have to warn you, that's all it took for me to become hooked.
Sin and Cheshire Cat are also on my imps I would order if I were going to which I'm not list. The others are Dragon's Bone, Shadow, Laudanum, Loralei, Severin, Kumiho, The Apothecary, Kathmandu, Shanghai, and Tulzscha.
You saw the Shakespearean ones, yes?
Yes, and was utterly charmed by them. Most of them just weren't scents I'd want to wear. The Apothecary is from that page, though.
If you were to order, we could swap. But you're not. :) I'm getting Dragon's Bone--I can send a sample your way.
Bring it with you to WisCon?
If it arrives in time I will.
Damn. I'll have to try some of those. A couple of them, like Faustus and Sin, sound especially intriguing because my favorite bubble-bath from Lush is franckincense, cinnamon and patchouli: http://www.lush.co.uk/system/index.html
My first order should get here fairly soon, if you interested in either:

Azathoth is the blind, idiot god who sits on a black throne at the center of Chaos. His scent is high-pitched and screeching, both impenetrably dark and searingly bright with the clarity of madness: tangerine, saffron, vetiver, black amber and cedarwood.

or Yog - The perfume of eternity in vast, unknowable space. A glittering oil, ephemeral, iridescent, and horrifying in its immeasurable emptiness. This is the scent of air and darkness.

Wiscon ho!
Darn it, you just had to make me go waste money. I am a sucker for interesting scents, though I am the opposite of you, I can pick out individual notes in most perfumes, and I can often tell the ingredients in a dish just by smell. It's not always something you want to be able to do.

Anyway, I ordered a dozen imps: Moscow, Sybaris, Blood, Eclipse, Saint-Germain, Hunger, Seraglio, Golden Priapus, Bastet, Akuma, Nocnitsa & Inferno
Hee. I sense much giggling in the future.
