I haven't actually smelled any of these, but isn't this the company that released the Neil Gaiman-inspired scents?

I totes want some of these, but I wouldn't have any idea where to start. Although I'm pretty drawn to more dry, musty scents. Musty probably isn't the right word. Sultry is better.

Yes, it is. If you want me to put up summaries of each, I can do so.

I don't want you to have to go overboard with it, but a little hint would definitely help.

CG Imps? LE and Unimpable Imps? I feel so silly not knowing what these are.

BPAL is the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab (http://www.blackpheonixalchemylab.com). Imp Ears are what the call their tester vials. GC is General Collection, LE is Limited Edition (discontinued, etc.) and Unimpable means it was a scent never offered in tester form but was divided into testers by fellow BPAL enthusiasts.

I took a look at their website, and I'm intrigued, but like another said before me, I've no idea what to look at on the list.

A small description if it's not too much? Thanks & good luck :)

I just noticed that almost all the ones I've picked are ones you told me you personally hated. XD

I hope I'll have more luck with them.

I'd like one of the bottles actually. Fearful Pleasure sounds nice.

I'm thinking I'd like one of the bottles... Chant D'Autumn sounds nice. I'd just liek to know if it's too heavy. I mean, does it smell like an old library/wood, or is it still something that is kind of feminine? Could you sniff it? lol

I defs want Jezebel, Pride and Goneril, though.
