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.

It just so happens that I have an absinthe-based sample on hand. :) I'll have a look through my stuff tonoght and see if I can pick some nice wood-note ones for you. Are there any other notes you like in your perfume?

I do enjoy hemp... cardamon... and cinnamon scents...

I really appreciate you going through your stuff... your a pretty sweet "faux-canadian" australian! ;-)

Hey, that's alright - my collection ios too big anyway, and filled with stuff I'm never going to get much of a chance to wear. I'd much rather send them off to a good home. :)

At this stage, what I have in mind for you are:

La Fee Verte: "A variant on the absinthe theme. Sugared wormwood, hyssop and melissa with calamus, angelica and Dittany of Crete, blended with a Bohemian perfume of vanilla musk, honey absolute and Moroccan spices." It's a limited edition which is no longer around, but it's not one of my favourites so I'm happy to pass it on.

Bastet: "Luxuriant amber, warm Egyptian musk, fierce saffron and soft myrrh, almond, cardamom and golden lotus." It really is quite lovely, but it's a little too heavy for me on the skin. It might work out better got you!

Eclipse: "All the glory, warmth and majesty of the sun -- darkened. A delicious blend of bitter almond, vanilla, frankincense and heliotrope, with a drop of cinnamon." I love this one in the vial, but again, it is something which I can't wear - I think the frankincense doesn't agree with me.

Am I on the right track, note-wise? I have some wood-note ones at home, but I can't quite remember them off the top of my head...

That sounds fabulous... all three intrigue me... and yes, although we both seem to have fair skin... I'm a little darker in complexion due to my arabic heritage... might wear Bastet well...

I'd take one or two more at your discretion... surprise me, if you will... and then just let me know how to proceed.

I'm going to transfer some funds into my PayPal account this evening - I've only got $10 in there since my last purchase (a gorgeous revolving earring tree to hold my 80+ pairs of earrings). :-)

So no hurries... it will take about 8-10 days for the funds to be processed completely. I just really appreciate you willing to share...

Kinda like me when I'm letting go of shoes I never wear: as long as they go to a good home... someone who'll give them a purpose. :-)
