BPAL clearout

We all know that I have too much BPAL, and that I am rather on the poor side at the moment. We also know that I am a rampant enabler! To that end, I present to you my first round of my imp-box-clearance sale!

Individual General Catalogue imps cost $3 US from the lab, so I'm offering this lot for $4 AUS each (given the current exchange rate).

GC Imps for sale:

Black Phoenix
Come to Me
De Sade
Marquise de Mertruil

Limited Edition scents are only avaliable from the lab in 5mL bottles (usually costing about $20 US). Imps (or decants) of these scents are routinely sold on forums and eBay for around $5 US an imp, so at the current exchange rate these will be offered for $7 Aus an imp.

LE Imps for sale:

Chaste Moon (A Little Lunacy)
Milk Moon x2 (A Little Luncay)
Khajurajo (Valentine's Day 2006)

All of these imps have been tested once or twice but are still very full - I wouldn't want to rip you guys off! Leave a comment to reserve your precious, and we'll work out when to meet up to exchange imps for cash.

hey on a total different topic...i was just told by a friend that the anti-cancer council LOVE people to donate their hair for wigs etc. All you need is 8inches, which isnt that much!

Anyways, hmm these perfumes sound delectable, i might order some samples...for someone who likes sandalwood, christian dior's poison as well as citrusy notes, which bpals would you recommend?

May. 10th, 2006 08:51 am (UTC)
8 inches, eh? Totally do-able, and I'd much rather donate to an Australian organisation.

As for perfumes... you can always try the site at http://www.blackphoenixalchemylab.com/; there is a search function for individual perfume notes. The good thing for you is that citrus notes and sandalwood notes are very popular with the lab!

If you're after something like Dior's Poison, I'd suggest 'Thalia', which to me is very similar. I happen to have a spare imp if you are interested in giving it a try.

As for the ones above... Come to Me was far too citrussy for me. The main problem I had with most of them, though is patchouli, which really doesn't agree with me.

I'll have a bit more of a think and see what I can suggest...

Well I need more perfume so rather than go to the shops I shall buy 4 imps from you if thats ok? Perhaps we could make an afternoon of it and I'll buy ya lunch and pick out some imps?
May. 10th, 2006 11:44 am (UTC)
Mmm - lunch. Sure! I'm pretty sure I'll have more on my 'to sell' list in a few days. I'm just starting the sifting process. I'll see if I can't choose a few you mich like. Are there any particular types of notes you like in perfume?

Are you still at Abootsford address? I owe you $$ and have now been paid enough to repay Friends for Dinner rego deposit.

May. 10th, 2006 01:09 pm (UTC)
Oooh, forgot to add. Totally interested in Port au Prince if you want to offload it or order me one in the next batch.
Cheers, K.
May. 10th, 2006 09:15 pm (UTC)
Yes! I have a spare imp of it an everything now! I am still at the Abbotsford St Adress, so if you send me what you need to I can then mail you Port au Prince without any hassle. :)
May. 10th, 2006 01:43 pm (UTC)
I'm interested in buying Katharina and Milk Moon. Is that okay? ^_^

(I'm getting Khajurajo and Chaste Moon from eBay...)
May. 10th, 2006 09:16 pm (UTC)
Yes and yes. I'll put them aside for you for next time we meet up.

If no one else has claimed them, can I put my hand up for Lilith and Khajuraho please? They sound lovely!
May. 10th, 2006 02:52 pm (UTC)
Actually, sorry, am going to have to cancel that.:( Nevertheless, they still sound lovely.

BTW, would you be interested in getting any TAL? http://www.twilightalchemylab.com/ ?
May. 15th, 2006 10:54 am (UTC)
I'm a little unsure of the TAL oils. They are designed for ritual use only, and I don't use oils in rituals, so I'm not sure how much use out of the TAL series I would get. Wearing ritual oils as perfume kind of strikes me as being on the same level as using a crucifix as a toothpick or something. I don't know, maybe that's a bit harsh, but I take my religion seriously. And while I take a great deal from voodoo in my magic, I don't much like the idea of using things that other people have ritually consecrated. Seems too much like wearing someone else's underwear.

Basically I'm not sure that the TAL line is for me... let's just say I'm cautious, but curious. But I'm sure that someone over at alchemylab or on the BPAL forums is doing a decant circle or has spare imps if you are interested.

Hi there... stumbled unto your journal and have been fascinated with your infectious bpal enthusiasm... to the point of scoping out the site for myself... and being rather intrigued in return.

Then I read this post... and wonder if after all this time you still have a few "échantillons" you are willing to let go of for the right price (through PayPal of course)... and if so, would you be willing to ship some to Canada?

Do let me know.

Aug. 9th, 2006 10:21 pm (UTC)

I'm not sure what the shipping to Canada will be, but I'm sure we can work something out. Do you have anything in particular you are interested in? My collection has gotten larger, and this is hardly an updated list...

Also, I'm friending you. :)
