General catalogue: BPAL Edition-Bewitching Brews Pt. I

 

Bewitching Brews

Absinthe
Fall under the spell of our Green Fairy! An intoxicating blend containing wormwood essence, light mints, cardamom, anise, hyssop, and the barest hint of lemon.

In the Imp:  Smells like Black liquorice.  Hmm…
On Me:  Not quite Absinthe. It’s pretty, but it’s richly citrusy with whiffs of Anise and spice.  Cooling and refreshing, like ice.
On My Son:  Minty Lemondrops.  Thought this was a liquorice smell.  I still like it.

Anne Bonny
Named in honor of the most notorious female pirate to ever set sail. Wicked, cruel, beautiful, intelligent, resourceful and dangerous: a true role model. A blend of Indonesian red patchouli, red sandalwood, and frankincense. A million thanks to Juliana Williamson-Page for inspiration!

In the Imp:  Not trying this.  The Patchouli overwhelms it with a nauseating mawkishness.  Can’t smell anything else.
On Me: Not trying this, she stinks like a dirty hippie!
Him: Guys, I found several imps of this in the try-it pile, and got Mom with the darkest one because it smells very woodsy and incensey.
Me: I cannot believe you did that!
Him: Love you!
Me: *weensie fingers* This much.
Him: *arms wide open* Thiiiiis much!
Me: Since you found an aged one, and got me, I’ll talk about it. I guess I can say it’s not too bad, the Patchouli is a bit more subdued here, and the woods blend in fairly nice with the resins. If I were to wear this, however, I’d add some tobacco or a rum scent to add to the pirate theme, because I really don’t like it as-is…then again, maybe she needs more aging.

Arcana
The essence of magickal enigmas and long-forgotten esoteric mysteries. Frankincense, rosemary, lavender, neroli, and verbena.

In the Imp:  Confusing.  Citrus and Frankincense heavy.
On Me:  Light sharpness from the Lavender, then the Frankincense and Citrus diffuse it.  I’m not sure if I like it or not.  Will have to retest it later.
On My Son:  It’s interesting.  Starts off Lavender, turns into a green smell, then incense and Oranges.  Sort Of candy-like at the end, very sweet.

Aureus
True, perfect golden light, refined into an incomparably glorious scent.

In the Imp: Church. Incense. Resins. Freshly polished pews, glowing woods.
On Me: This even more. Not quite as crisp as Cathedral(review later), but still very lovely.
On My Son: Smoky, and incense heavy. Smells warm and relaxing.
