My BPAL + other etailers sales/swap post!

Hello, all! I'm maintaining a central sales post on my ElJay for ease of editing and keeping things in one place. I have bottles and imps, LE and GC, all sorts of goodies to be found, and I include freebies with every shipment! Links for each scent lead to the review section at bpal.org.

My feedback post is over here, and my wish list is right here if you'd like to propose a swap instead of PayPal. My ability to accept trades varies with the level in my PayPal account, but it never hurts to ask. ^_^

Boring Stuff: Shipping is $2.75 within the US (includes DC) and $3.75 to anywhere else. Please buy at least $5.00 worth of stuff pre-shipping. LET ME KNOW if you want insurance; I will not be responsible for uninsured packages. I accept CC and non-CC PayPal, but PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE PAYING IF YOU CAN ONLY PAY BY E-CHECK. E-check will more than likely be fine, but please check first. If you can include a little extra to cover the fees, that would be helpful, but PayPal forbids insisting on it. ;)

Bottles -- LE

Dionysia (full to neck, label is a bit yellow-shaded from printing, comes with pitch card), $18.50
The Flower Song (full to neck), $16.50
The Host of the Air (about 1 1/2 imps), $4.00
Kajuraho '06 (aged 3 years, full to 2mm shy of shoulder), $14.00

All of the imps below, except for the ones marked otherwise, are at least 80% full (lab-full) as far as I can tell. In fact, many of the GCs are as I received them from the Lab, untouched and even unopened. The others were either opened only to sniff or tested cleanly with a tiny dab. Please let me know if you care about label condition, as some have been rolled (but not taped), and others are slightly marked. All are legible unless marked otherwise. Please buy at least $5.00 worth (pre-shipping) to make it worth the packaging. 8^)

The Girls Love Fall Wine (LE), $1.50
"They invade the orchards and the nut trees to make honey for the long winter rest. Sometimes the fallen fruits have fermented and that may be one of the secrets of autumn honey and its goodness. This blend is totally golden, thick, rich, calming and narcotic."

Merlin's Mistress (Dreams of Avalon), $1.50 swapping with gypsyjolie
"Merlin's Mistress relies most heavily on the familiar spices. Coriander and frankincense are two of the lead ingredients. Blended to be enticing but not "foody" Merlin's Mistress is a high keyed feminine fragrance with a hint of the wicked to it."

Ultramarine Blue, $1.50
“Chilly but just holding the faintest promise that spring will come again ... Blue musk makes it's first appearance at Possets, of course the finest lavender has to hold up its end of the blend, with Black Vanilla (yes!), and flowers and citrus.

I have a bottle of Stinky that I would like to trade. I'm interested in Spirit Komachi Tree and several of the vanilla, foody, sugary non bpals listed. Gonna have a closer look in the morning, just now getting home from work, ugh. Perhaps I have more on your wishlist. Lily

Cool! If you'll get me a list of all the items you want and point me at what you have to swap, we'll see what we can work out. :)
Aug. 5th, 2009 03:01 am (UTC)
I didn't forget about the swap & sale, been away from my computer. On my iPhone till tomorrow. I will shoot you a list of what I'm interested in, and the 2 or 3 things I have on your list. It's very hard from this phone, so will get back to you to on my main computer in the afternoon
Aug. 5th, 2009 03:28 am (UTC)
Not a problem, and thanks for the update. :)
Sep. 4th, 2009 01:06 am (UTC)
Quick question re: Haunted Palace. It's one of my all time favorite scents buuuuuut...

The one I got from the trunk show smells so full and juicy and multi-faceted and delicious, and the original that I bought smells very flat and dull...I don't want to end up with another one of those, you know?

So, I guess I'm asking if yours has lost that full, round quality to the smell? I know how vague that is :( if it helps, the original I have smells more floral and powdery than anything else...
Sep. 4th, 2009 01:51 am (UTC)
Hmmm. *sniffs bottle again* Well, I can tell you that the orange, vanilla and musk are very much present among the various flowers. I can't make any comparisons, having never sniffed the trunk show version, but it's definitely not just floral and powder. If there's anything else you want to know, just ask!
