Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez! [Jan. 24th, 2005|01:37 pm]

Still working on "Ghosts of Mardi Gras"!

Almost done though - I should have her finished by tonight, certainly >^___^<

It's pretty darned cool, really!

I'm excited - my perfume order from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab is on its way - it might be here today even! They make the best perfume oils in the world, and I'm completely and utterly addicted to them. It's even more exciting since it usually takes about a month or two from the time of placing the order until the time it arrives (since they are hand blended), so it's quite an event, lol. It's mostly an order for my sister kenderdrache - I bought her several of them for Christmas. I got a couple for myself too (I have about 65 or so of the sample-sized "imp's ears", but I don't have any actual bottles yet!).

Speaking of Amber/BPAL (here's the plug) - as many of you know, she's a collage artist, and she has a couple of fun auctions up on eBay - they are collages based on BPAL perfumes, and each one comes with a free "imp's ear" perfume oil of the scent the collage is inspired by. So any of you perfume lovers/art lovers out there - you might want to check out these:

"The Cheshire Cat"


Coincidentally, my own "Hamadryad" was painted when I was wearing Hamadryad perfume oil, lol - must be an inspirational scent!

I'm off to paint now - you can watch Mardi Gras magic happening HERE!

BPAL seems to be hit and miss for me. Sometimes it has a wonderful fragrance, other times it smells almost bitter... despite being the same perfume. It's the same with Lush soaps. Very odd. :\

I've liked all but one or two so far - some more than others, but over all I have to say they are far superior than any other scented oils I've tried (and I've tried a LOT, lol). Oooh! I haven't tried any Lush products yet, but they just opened a big Lush store right at our local airport (where I'm at all the time either flying out or picking up visitors). I'll have to check them out!

I just got "Come to me" and "Titania" from BPAL in the mail today!! They both smell wonderful! You should try them. BPAL rocks, superior quality.
