    I finally got my order! mmmm Perversion. I wasn't thrilled at first, but it really smells yummy on me, more spice and smoke than sweet. Very very sexy. I've received several compliments on it. I also got an imp of ophelia, soooo good. I'm hooked.

    Is there anywhere else besides ebay where I can get it quicker?

    from BPAL:

    [SIZE=-2]Bewitching Brews [/SIZE][SIZE=-2]Black Pearl [/SIZE][SIZE=-2]Evocative of the sea's unplumbed mysteries. Gentle and lovely, but menacing and profound. Coconut, Florentine iris, hazelnut and opalescent white musk. (Gender neutral) [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=-2]Bewitching Brews [/SIZE][SIZE=-2]Blood Pearl [/SIZE][SIZE=-2]Lustrous, sanguine, soft and lavish: soft orris, blood musk, and coconut. (Gender neutral) [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=-2]Excolo [/SIZE][SIZE=-2]Elegba [/SIZE][SIZE=-2]The Spirit of the Divine Messenger, the Lord of the Crossroads, He Who Owns All Doors and Roads in this World. He is the intermediary between the Orishas and mankind, and stands at the intersection of humanity and the Divine. He opens all paths of communication, both mundane and Heavenly. His ofrenda contains coconut, tobacco and sweet, sugared rum. (Gender neutral) [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=-2]Wanderlust [/SIZE][SIZE=-2]Eden [/SIZE][SIZE=-2]At the center of the Garden of Eden stands the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Though modern interpretations of the Bible claim that it was an apple that the Serpent of the Tree offered to Eve, it is widely believed that the true Fruit of True Knowledge was, in fact, a fig. This oil contains the innocence of the Garden, coupled with the Truth and Erudition found in the fruit of the Tree of Evil: fig leaf, fig fruit, honeyed almond milk, toasted coconut and sandalwood. (Gender neutral) [/SIZE]


    Some BPAL users detect coconut in other scents as well :

    ok, I need some advice here... so let's say I'd like to get the most sexy, seductive scent... which one should I get? I heard Sheherazade does have an effect like that... :blush:

    Also, which one of the 'pirate scents' :lol: would you recommend?

    Don't know what you mean by pirate scent

    But as for the sexy scent question I'd look here : http://www.bpal.org/index.php?showtopic=5655&hl=sexy
    (which scent knocks men off their feet ? ) :wink:

    My favorite coconut one was a limited called Spooky:heart:
    I have two bottles of it...its like sun oil with more coconut and mint and choccie...lovely!
    For pirate scents, do you mean for a girl or guy?
    I personally adore Anne Bonny:woot: its sandalwood and resins- so nice...the ones that have rum in them are nice...one of the Halloween ones Devils Night is still available til Nov 15th and it has rum and "touch of thuggish musk"- haven't smelled it yet but people seem to love it.

    I mean for a girl (me :innocent: )

    Something that has just a piratey feeling to it... like a seabreeze mixed with the smell of adventure... I sound silly right now :doh:

    Don't worry, Bpal has something for everyone :D

    Jolly Roger:
    Sea spray with an undercurrent of leather, Bay Rum, and salty, dry woods.

    PORT-AU-PRINCE
    [SIZE=-2]Dark, decadent and incomparably exotic: the rich scent of buttered rum flavored with almond, bay, clove and sassafras.[/SIZE]

    MANILA
    [SIZE=-2]A tropical, humid, lush scent, with a faint echo of Pacific breezes, jungle blossoms, and deep wet woods. Sampaguita blossoms, banana leaf, palm, and narra.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-2][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-2]That's all I could find for now, but they probably have more :flower:

    I placed another order today! I have two pending orders now... I can't wait any longer!!!! Well, the good thing is that they are trying to fill all orders placed by November 15th in time for Christmas delivery so it can't be more than about another month.

    Snake oil just sounded yummy and I love vanilla.

    I was debating on Follow me boy, next time I'll try that.

    You ordered enough to keep your nose busy for months :lol:

    Thank you Orchide - I'm so jealous you get to go to their locale - I wonder if they will be making an anniversary oil ?
