The Jersey Devil
It was about three feet and half high, with a head like a collie dog and a face like a horse. It had a long neck, wings about two feet long, and its back legs were like those of a crane, and it had horse’s hooves. It walked on its back legs and held up two short front legs with paws on them. It didn’t use the front legs at all while we were watching. My wife and I were scared, I tell you, but I managed to open the window and say, “Shoo”, and it turned around barked at me, and flew away.
The scent of the wild, hauntingly beautiful Pine Barrens of New Jersey! Pitch pine with blackberry leaf, cranberry, cedar wood and tomato leaf.
In the Bottle: The description is perfect…it smells wild and creepy.
On Me: Wow. Scent of Nightshade, Pine sap, tart Cranberries and Blackberries.
On My Son: Creepy. Can I wash it off?
Sleek, dark, and ominous. Violet and neroli mingled with iris, white sandalwood and dark musk.
In the Bottle: It almost reminds me of Melancholy Tesla, minus the ozone and electricity, and adding Dark Musk.
On Me: It’s like AG Raven, only no Myrrh, it’s sweet, and bright where the other is dry.
On My Son: Nevermore!
“I like to drink martinis
Two at the very most.
Three, I’m under the table,
Four, I’m under my host.”
— Dorothy Parker
A tribute to New York’s 21 Club on West 52nd, formerly the speakeasy Jack & Charlie’s Puncheon Club. This is the scent of the perfect martini:
“The Perfect Martini, as an idea, has infinite possibilities. For me, the Dry Martini remains an American symbol of elusive perfection, a kind of pagan Holy Grail. The dedicated Martini drinker views this deceptively simple cocktail as a true if fleeting, salvation, … As in religion, one may not have actually witnessed the Conception of the Perfect Martini, but one accepts on faith that it exists, and that it takes away the sins of the earth.”
— The Martini, Barnaby Conrad III
This scent is dedicated to all the mods on the BPAL forum as thanks for their hard work, friendship, and for all they do to make the forum a pleasant, safe, and friendly place.
In the Bottle: Boozy and sharp.
On Me: Gin martini. I love it.
On My Son: Smells like 007’s working cocktail.
A quiet scent, soft, calm and enigmatic. A perfume of mystery, of whispers, and of secrets behind secrets. White sandalwood, lilac, gardenia, violet, orris, lavender and ylang ylang.
In the Bottle: Flowers bold and soft.
On Me: Vases of fragant flowers.
On My Son: Pass, too many flowers.
