A classic Victorian men’s cologne: a lavender fougere, with hints of lilac, lime, and citrus musk.

Love this. Soft, clean and a little bit dark. Lasts fairly well (would be happy if it lasted a tiny bit longer) and smells just like I thought it would from the name and description. Does have the classic air of a Victorian cologne. Dries down very nicely, leaving a clean soapy citrus scent. Have been through several bottles and is my all time favourite BPAL scent.

I’m no connoisseur. All I knew was my partner loved the smell of lavender and I wanted to get him a BPAL cologne he can wear to work (he’s a server/bartender, so he runs around a lot). He’s quite the witty troublemaker, a self proclaimed mad scientist in the kitchen, so “Villain” seemed like the perfect choice for him.
Vial: Very strong lavender, exactly what the doctor ordered.
Wet: The musk is there, but still strongly lavender, with the barest trace of the freshness of lime. A surprisingly delightful compliment to the heaviness that lavender buds and musk have.
Dry: I only smell it on him dry after work. He says it doesn’t last until the end of the shift, which is fine. When I hug him when he comes home, there’s this bright cocktail of citrus limey musk left over that my nose initially picked up as very sweet. It’s a surprising transition. Not sure where the sweetness comes from, but maybe he’s amping the citrus?
Even though we both wish it lasted a little longer, we both really enjoy it. He gets lots of compliments on it early on in the night from customers, and I like to think the smell helps with the tips 😉

Original Old Spice Cologne with long lasting power and medium throw. It reminds me of my grandfather.

Out of the vial: Lavenndar, boom! After a couple more sniffs I get the softer lilac mingled with the lavendar.
Wet on skin: About the same really with the lilac amping a little, which I was nervous about because I don’t super love lilac. I start to get the musk but at this point I am not super into it.
Dry: wow! so different. A soft masculine musk with just a strange hint of spiciness(based on the notes, I have no idea where that comes from).
Overall impression: I like it alot. It’s masculine for sure but I think a woman could pull it off. I’m abit sad that I don’t detect any obvious lime at any point because that is my fave but it impressed me enough that I can overlook that.

A soft, sensual, luxuriant blend with a wicked bite: hazelnut, buttercream, honey mead, rum and sweet almond.
Dark children conceived from the union of Fallen Angels and the Daughters of Men. According to lore, the angel Shemhazai led a group of his angels to earth to instruct mankind in the ways of piety and righteousness. After a time, the angels became prey to earthly desires and began to lust after the daughters of man, and thus they fell. They instructed their mortal mates in the arts of conjuration, summoning, necromancy and other magickal arts. The fruits of their union are the Nephilim: possessed of superhuman strength, cunning, and infinite capacity, and hunger for, sin. Venerated as heroes by some, vilified by most, the Nephilim eventually annihilated one another in a cataclysmic civil war instigated by the angel Gabriel as punishment for their transgressions.
Holy frankincense and hyssop in union with earthy fig, defiled by black patchouli and vetiver, with a chaotic infusion of lavender, cardamom, tamarind, rosemary, oakmoss and cypress.
Named in honor of Vlad III, Tepes, of the Order of the Dragon. Black musk, tobacco, fir, balsam of peru, cumin, bitter clove, crushed mint, and orange blossom.
A fiery Martial blend that embodies primal rage, lust for conquest, and all-encompassing desire. Dragon’s blood essence, heavy red musk, Indonesian patchouli and swarthy vetiver with a drop of cinnamon.
