Lupercalia

The BPAL Lupers went up a week or so ago. Anybody order anything? Excited about anything? Curious? I've been trying to be good (too many untested imps already), so only ordered two decants: Body, Remember and L’Intention Fait Valoir les Bagatelles.

Body, Remember: Profoundly sensual. The echo of caresses: raw black coconut, ambergris accord, ambrette seed, champaca flower, and sugar cane.
Named for the Cavafy poem. I love Cavafy, so there was no question I was trying this. But sweet, musky coconut sounds pretty awesome in its own right. Fingers crossed, if it's as good as it sounds I'll be getting a bottle (at least!).

L’Intention Fait Valoir les Bagatelles: Black tea, lavender buds, Italian bergamot, and Siamese benzoin.
This sounds quite drinkable :). I love tea, lavender, and citrus on their own. We'll see how well they combine.

And I may break down and get a bottle of Womb Furie at some point. The decant I got two years ago has mellowed wonderfully with age.
