Quick review

Sorry to do another BPAL post today - but Milk Moon and Minotaur just arrived, and there may be people looking for reviews to decide if they're going to buy them, and they come down on Sunday. So.

Milk Moon: A fertile scent, generous, life-affirming, and swelling with a sense of triumph, warmth, and abundance: sweet milk, golden honey, fig fruit, pomegranate, dates, and white grape.

In bottle: Sweet and fruity, but not too much of either.

On me: Mmmm! Things interact in unexpected ways. It becomes a darker scent than I'd thought it would be. Dates! There are dates! Not smelling the grape (good!) or the pomegranate (unexpected!). This is sweet fig and date. This is so yummy. Oh, and *there's* the milk note - but it's not cold milk, it's a warm creaminess. This is yummy!

MINOTAUR The Bull of Minos, guardian of the Labyrinth in Knossos. A deep, swarthy black musk dusted by a dark, resinous blend of sacred bisabol myrrh, atramentous benzoin, tsori, balsam, and galbanum.

In bottle: Myrrh + galbanum = 'song in a puddle.

On me: Oh, this is good. Oh *man*. This is the very heart of the Labyrinth; this is who the Minotaur is when he's at home. Dark and resinous and lush. Nestlike. *gibbers* If you like resinous scents, get this before it goes away. This is a cousin of Schwarzer Mond.
