When I was heavily into perfume smelling a year or two back, a friend who's a very dedicated enthusiast gave me many samples and even one or two partial bottles, and then I turned out to be an extremely picky person who only likes one or two perfumes by Mindy Aftel and doesn't actually wear anything else. Now I'm moving and I need to clear stuff out. Would you like a box of random perfumes in return for S/H? My only ask is that you take all of it, I'm not trying to split the lot up. (If you want to split the lot with someone else after I mail it to you, that's awesome, may maximum numbers of people be happy!)

So apparently the Lupercalia order for the decant circle ([community profile] synecdochic_decants) I'm in has finally shipped! I've been stewing over these for a while now, getting antsy! I posted on my journal about what I was looking forward to, thought I'd share here too. FWIW, I'm pretty new to BPAL, and to perfume in general. I ordered:these. )

Anyone have Lupers already, or an order on the way? What are you liking or not liking? What are you looking forward to?

Initial verdict on BPAL's Dead Leaves, Black Pepper, and Sandalwood:
Smells like all three elements and incredibly amazing in the bottle. Partner and I both get wide-eyed. I pine for a full bottle.

Initial application: Right wrist - soft, warm sandalwood to the forefront. Black pepper underneath. Dead leaves very faint in the background.
Left elbow - PEPPER. Dead leaves. Sandalwood very faint in the background.

30 seconds after application: partner decides my right arm has a new home next to her nose. She barely let go for me to type up this post.

Perfume and body chemistry: SO FASCINATING.

BPAL Halloween time, that is! What is an instabottle for you? What is a no no no (black) cat? I thought it might be fun to discuss here (I know there's discussions on the forum, Twitter, Facebook et al), so here are the breakdowns behind the cut:
