    Embalming Fluid is such a light lovely scent. It almost reminds me of a sort of lemony cleaner but in a good way. It mainly smells of the lemon with a hint of the musk and green tea. However on the skin, it’s not very strong. It could also make a great room scent! Defiantly one I would recommend.

    My skin is used to lavender and masculine smells; fresh and clean. But this smell didn’t mix well with my skin after a while and it conceived a “glue” sort of smell after a couple of hours. At first it was the smell for any occasion, but as the time passed by, the smell became itchy for my nose and rotten.

    My favourite citrus scent; I’ll be getting a bottle when my imp runs out.

    Oh, Embalming Fluid, how I love thee. This is one of my favorite BPAL scents, next to Jabberwocky. You can really smell the green tea and the lemon. Its such a sharp, fresh scent that makes my nose oh-so-happy.

    A perfect fresh, clean scent. On me the lemon was very strong, but the tea scent lingered underneath it, grounding it and giving it depth. On me, earthy scents tend to predominate, so I was afraid as the day wore on the tea would take over. But that didn’t happen. The two scents stayed balanced the entire time. It lasted all day without reapplication too. Definitely a keeper.

    This scent is AHMAZING! Like freshly brewed green tea with a bright citrus note. I could not stop smelling myself while wearing it! This is a fairly subtle scent, strong when first applied, but sticking close when it dries. But I appreciated the subtlety, and every time there was a small breeze I would catch a scent of it. One of my favorites, by far!

    I cannot stop smelling myself. This is by far my favorite scent, period. I usually go for darker scents but Embalming Fluid called out to me. I needed to take the chance. Obviously, it smells nothing like formaldehyde. On my skin, it smells just as it does in the imp, only slightly darker (which I love). It isn’t overly citrus-y, and the green tea definitely takes center stage. For some reason, I managed to unknowingly purchase the imp at the perfect time of the season. You would think it makes for a nice summer scent. But on me, it makes a perfect autumn scent. It reminds me of crisp fall air. The light rustle of crunchy dead leaves whirling in althe breeze. The scent is therapeutic for me. It’s uplifting and calming, which is the antithesis of citrus scents. Emablming Fluid won me over the moment it went on my skin.

    Smells almost identical to the other green tea & lemon blend, Shanghai, though this has a hint of soft, smooth, powdery white musk to it. Reminds me of Elizabeth Arden’s Green Tea perfume. Pleasant, clean, lemony green tea with some musk. It just doesn’t feel very unique or special to me.

    After reading several reviews of this fragrance on the forum. I was worried that this beautiful citrus musk was going to be too fleeting for my tastes. I was wrong! Yes, the silage is low, but I’ve had embalming fluid on all day and I am still getting whiffs of. Thus, although it stays close, it does stay. Furthermore, it is a really pretty, refreshing citrusy musk. Yes, it has lemon and this comes out in the fragrance, but it does NOT smell like lemonade to me, it is too musky, floral for that. Neither does it smell like cleaning products (as avobath does to me). I can see how this is one of bpals most popular scents and I recommend giving it a go.

    This scent was given to me as a sample in my last order, and I am SO glad that it was! I would likely never have purchased it for myself, as it didn’t really strike my fancy. This scent is amazing, though.

    In the bottle it’s very fruity but on my skin I can pick up the musk and aloe much more. Once dry it’s more musky with a hint of tea and lemon. It stays pretty strong throughout the day, and the imp has lasted me over a month. I will certainly be purchasing the full size bottle!

    I think I like this better as a room spray. It goes very lemony on my skin. Would pair well with something with a little more presence.

    Feminine, fruity, bright.

    I got this for {Insert Winter Holiday} and tried it out today. I am eagerly awaiting Spring to bring out this fresh and clean scent again.

    Every BPALer has a scent they buy just for the name and one they avoid because they can’t get around the name. Embalming Fluid was one of the latter for me. I read the description but it seemed so disjointed from the feelings the name invoked. I’ve smelt Gore Shock and Ghulheim I know Beth can take her creativity to many places, some of them a little spooky. It took me a year to finally get a bottle and I’m so glad I did. Its lovely, crisp, green, a little sharp, but its all spring time and sophistication. A sure repurchase of this one.

    This is Fresh, and Clean, and Light……but it’s also surprisingly sophisticated, luxe, and chic.
    Gorgeous for a man or woman. I love how playful and light this is, but at the same time, equally at home around the jet set. I’d wear this to the beach or to tea at the Peninsula. (or for a man, drinks at the Polo Lounge) It’s just that good.
