BPAL note

Kweku Anansi and Nihil both have really strong throw, and do not go together *at all*.

Kweku Anansi: Vetiver, dusty pepper, nutmeg, thyme and grass over a deep, mossy wooden core. Dusty pepper is an excellent description. Dusty pepper and the herbs and darkly mossy, with a base of vetiver. Not getting any woods. It's a fascinating scent. Like Wolfsbane, I'm not sure I'll wear it as a perfume, but it's very effective at setting a mood. It is strong and dark and ash and... earth without the BPAL "dirt" note. I do quite like it.

Nihil has no description yet. But it smells absolutely nothing like I expected something called Nihil to smell. It is very very floral. It is department-store perfume. I'm not getting rose from it; I'm not good at identifying floral notes in a mix of same, so I can just tell you it's *not* rose, magnolia, gardenia, or honeysuckle.

And so I have this fascinating deep-earth-and-dust rising from my left arm and this "Would you like to try our new perfume?" *spritz* *spritz* aaagh *hack* *cough* department store gauntlet experience on my right.

My brain is so confused.
