Updated 7/1/10

I'll probably make a new post rather than update this one, as it's somewhat out of date. Thanks for looking.

Hello! I have a stack of mostly BPAL that's a bit cluttery. Several bottles + a few from other 'tailers, and a rather huge stack of GC imps. Hit me? ALSO: If I owe you swappage/bunnies/whatever -- Please email me, please please? Thank you. <3

Things you should know: I work weekends, so I'm proportionally less likely to be able to check mail/lj on Friday-Sunday. I like to pack and ship out on Monday/Tuesday. I like swapping; my wishlist is at the top, just under the cut-tag. :)

Paypal only please; for most perfume orders, shipping in the US will be $2.50; outside, $3.50; will ship anywhere on the face of the globe. Note: for heavier orders, shipping will be by weight. Priority mail always available; either flat rate or general.

Feedback can be found on either the BPAL forum here, or [ profile] bpal_feedback here. Ebay feedback also available here

Wishlist for swappage:
5 ml
Empty/partial of The Little Sparrow
Empty/partial of Empyreal Mist (original) -- I have several imps that would love a bottle-home.
Aquarius 07 - empty would be ideal, partial okay.

Mysterious Warning
Knecht Ruprecht
Budding Moon
Harvest Moon 05, 06

Also willing to entertain offers of:
Neo-Tokyo (I have some, but would consider more.)

Notes of Yes:
beeswax, cinnamon, saffron, vanilla, rose (especially white rose), cocoa (especially if it's an undertone, rather than an overwhelming reek of chocolate), honey (sometimes), frankincense, myrrh, 'misty' scents, snow, glass, cardamom, ambergris, rice flower, cake, anise/licorice, sandalwood (sometimes, the lighter the better), cherry blossom (sometimes), pink pepper, black cherry, paper, citrus (orange/mandarin/tangerine/lime), balsam (peru in particular, but others are okay, too), fennel (sometimes), almond, seaweed (sometimes), chamomile, mint (white or pepper or corn, NOT SPEARMINT. I prefer sweeter mints as well.)

Iffy, or highly dependent on the rest of the notes:
Carnation, red rose, tea rose, most patchouli, lemon balm, a lot of 'green' or 'fresh' scents, lemon, aquatics, smoke, "misc flowers", milk chocolate, skin musk, caramel

Notes of "If I keep trying them, -something- will work eventually, right?": Blackberry, cream, neroli, clove

Notes of NO:
Violet, cedar, anything death-related (grave dust, rotting, funeral, embalming, etc.), ivy, heather, overwhelming lavender, linen/cotton, teak, black pepper, heavy vetiver, red ginger(!!!), really strong patchouli, cassia (but curiously only BPAL's cassia. Other companies, notably Blooddrop, have a cassia that goes fine on me. ?_?), 'wind' or 'storm' scents, most ozone, spearmint


SWAP ONLY -- make me an offer, eh?


None, goin' to [ profile] bpalmarketplace and then eBay.

BPAL GC Imps $2 each, buy ten or more, $1.50 each.
* denotes a decant rather than Lab imp; some of these may be more expensive than you'd expect, as they were acquired after the price increase. Very sorry about that; it's still a little less than what I paid through the decant circle I got them from.

These are mostly Lab-full, which varies somewhat from imp to imp. Decants are more full, by and large.
