Compelling, complex, and utterly enigmatic: a luxuriant, exotic blend of cherry, red musk, and star anise.

At first sniff it is cherry starburst sweet with which the musk transforms into a tuberose redolence that is stunning and moreish.
After settling, it is cherry incense .. not smoky as such, but delightfully headshop-esque with a touch of that anise darkness to the composition anchored and fro becoming too loud, too animalic.
I really like this one and is probably one of my top five BPAL’s.. I’ll definitely be buying a FB.
It is fine for daytime but would make a great date night/night out scent, too!

Among my favorite scents from BPAL, I had to buy the full size after my imp ran out. I was attracted by its blood red color when I got it as a frimp years ago and didn’t really start using it until recently and my partner adores it.
It’s complex, soft and sensual and makes me feel beautiful.

I did not care for this at first, but the cherry and anise really grew on me, in fact I like this better than Hideous Heart! It is sophisticated, sexy, and spicy-sweet.

Smells like cherry coke in the imp. Dries down to an incense-y licorice with a touch of cherry. If you like anise or licorice, give this one a shot.

Wet (on tester strip): musk, cherry, anise
Dry (on tester strip): musk, vanilla? …and rice?!
Wet (on skin): cherry, musk, anise
Dry (on skin): musk, rice, vanilla, cherry
What a strange, intoxicating scent! I am definitely smelling something almost…treacle-y, or like steamed rice with sugar on top. The cherry mellows out pretty quickly on my skin and the vanilla and musk become very prominent in the mix.
This is really nice and I wish I could enjoy the evolution of it because it smells like something very special, but it is giving me a terrible headache. So sad, but I’m very sensitive to certain smells, like vanilla.
On the plus side, it lingered even after a scrubbing so probably has great longevity!

Kabuki is a deep cherry scent with something kinda sickly-sweet in the background.
On dry down the cherry scent seems to fade and the musk/star anise step forward.
It isn’t a bad scent, just not right for me. I could see this smelling amazing on someone else.

Cherries and anise, an unusual combination. Spicy, yet cool. Strong and long-lasting – the anise’s licorice scent lingers for hours.

Insatiable lust, unending vigor! A truly carnal, energetic men’s blend: vanilla and amber with juniper, rosewood and white pine.
The Seventh Daughter, Daughter of the Oath. She was King David’s lover, and the mother of King Solomon. Her scent is breathtakingly lovely, exotic and powerfully sensual in its innocence: carnation, sensual plum, and Arabian musk.
Biblical witch, priestess of Astarte, and general troublemaker. A true role model for today’s upwardly mobile Modern Woman. A gloriously decadent blend of honey, roses, orange blossom and sandalwood.
Based on a Romany incense blend reputed to induce sexual dreams: Somalian rose, Moroccan rose and Bulgar rose with a sultry dribble of cinnamon.
