I’ve loved my BPAL orders, so I offered to buy my teenage brother some samples of masculine scents. He’s going through that puberty BO and is a little self conscious. I ordered him imps for Titus Adronicus and Thanatopsis because he said he wanted something woodsy–and I got the Cathod imp as a bonus. WOW! Cathode was by far his favorite scent. It’s long lasting, and WOW does it work! The first day he wore it and walked past me was the first day that, as much as I love him, I couldn’t smell his teenaged boy ick. He say’s it’s long lasting and his friends like it too. I can’t wait for BPAL to bring the full veils back in stock–or create a similar smelling scent.

Since perfume is so subjective, my 5 stars is based on the scent staying with me through the day and not irritating my sensitive skin or giving me a headache. Cathode has a unique quality that fills my senses in almost the same way as motor oil when I walk into a working garage–not sharp or overpowering, but thick and pungent, kind of languidly insistent that you take notice. I’ve never smelled another perfume quite like it. The musk of the ambergris came through nicely in the background as it warmed to my skin, but that punchy nose-teasing quality remained prominent throughout the day.

This is a really wonderful smell, a lot sweeter than I imagined. The mint isn’t as strong as I expected, but that really works here. This is a smell that makes me want to smile every time I get a whiff of it.

The mosses are VERY earthy in this one, but pleasantly so. When wet it’s not as sharp as I though it’d be and I was really happy for that. The mints carry this off to an extremely wonderful place once it dries.

A shot of pure, self-indulgent euphoria! A scent that is very, very wicked in its own way: the serotonin-slathered scent of pure milk chocolate.
Evocative of the sea’s unplumbed mysteries. Gentle and lovely, but menacing and profound. Coconut, Florentine iris, hazelnut and opalescent white musk.
“The Pretty Era”, France’s Golden Time: an age of beauty, innovation and peace in France that lasted from the 19th Century through the first World War and gave birth to the cabaret, the cancan, and the cinema as well as the Impressionist and Art Nouveau movements. Sweet opium, Lily of the Valley, vanilla, mandarin and red sandalwood.
Deep, luscious green and berry scents that evoke images of woodland witchcraft and the raw power of nature: blackberry, sage, green tea, wild berries and dark musk.
