Rappaccini’s Garden

Ascending to his chamber, he seated himself near the window, but within the shadow thrown by the depth of the wall, so that he could look down into the garden with little risk of being discovered. All beneath his eye was a solitude. The strange plants were basking in the sunshine, and now and then nodding gently to one another, as if in acknowledgment of sympathy and kindred.

Presented in an amber apothecary vial.

It goes without saying that the Rappaccini’s Garden and Apiary scents do not truly contain poisonous plant materials. Artistic license, my friend. Artistic license.

    This is my favorite rose perfume that I’ve tried so far. It is dark and mysterious but also powdery and comforting, very evocative of a delicate and beautiful black rose. I used to live in Williamsburg, VA where they sell a rose powder and I’ve searched for that scent in perfume- this is the closest I’ve gotten! Beautiful on the skin and in a scent locket.

    Alone this wears as a sort of green, grassy rose on me, with a barely perceptible black pepper element. I tend to prefer a sweeter, more Turkish delight-y rose… enter Rogue. Turns out leather smells go caramelly on me, so I tried this layered on top of the RPG collection’s Rogue scent. The pairing is incredible: not at all cloying or syrupy, delicious in a more “mature” way than straight-up “sweet” scents. I can’t stop smelling my wrist. I smell like a sexy thief who moonlights as a duelist or some shit. Incredible.

    Sadly I’m realizing that rose disappears on me – so I am left with a deeply vegetal scent, like crushed grass. The bit of amber and musk pale in comparison to the vegetal note, as they were meant to enchance the rose. Basically my skin messes up the balance here – I’m sure it will be very lovely on those who can carry rose successfully!

    Beth has an expert nose for roses, and this is no exception. It is absolutely one of the best GC rose scents that BPAL offers. It is very rose-heavy, but the amber and musk make it darker, more mysterious, and yeah, more sexy. It isn’t a grandma-type rose/floral, it is a night out on the town floral that is understated and very sensual. If you love roses or darker florals, this is a must-have in any BPAL collection.

    Definitely getting a full size when it is back in stock. Most BPAL roses smell powdery and even old lady-ish to me, but this is a demonic rose! I feel very dark and vampy with this.

    Smells like an elegant rose perfume made into a dusting powder.

    Very deep and heavy. If you’re looking for something dark and beautiful, this is what you want!
