Thanks for sharing. Shanghai is probably my favorite BPAL so far, though I sadly don't get much honeysuckle from it - it's mostly green tea with a touch of sweet lemon, and not at all soapy. Whereas every rose I've tried has gone soapy on me. The whole soapy thing is so weird, since it's a term people (including me, obviously!) use, and yet I'm not sure what it means. I mean, I know what *I* mean by it, but I have no idea if it corresponds to what other people mean. Does that make sense?

I never get any wickedness from London either! It's kinda puzzling. I also amp citrus notes like it's my job, so Shanghai has never been anything but lime-lemon ("limon," remember that one) on me, SIGH.
