Bpal- Roses, Pearls and Diamonds

I feel like I have neglected my general catalog or permanent scents. Sometimes are hidden gems among them. Last night for bed I used Roses, Pearls and Diamonds from Bpal and I thought to do a mini review.


PERFUME: Roses, Pearls and Diamonds

COMPANY: BPAL

AVAILABILITY: General catalog scent in the Marchen category.

OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION:Red roses, dazzling crystalline musks, and pearlescent coconut-tinged orris.

In the Marchen section of the general catalog scents Beth inspired by fairy tales creates beautiful scents. I know some of you really love short stories so go to that section and read all of them here.
This particular story is so lovely and romantic and sweet!!!

FROM THE DECANT/BOTTLE: Orris and “clean” musk feels like there is a drop of peppermint in it.

WET ON SKIN: Fresh red roses, still wet from the morning dew and orris. Fresh coconut fresh sweeten up the whole!

DRY DOWN: If you don't like orris probably you won't like this because that note stays from start to finish and I really like it! It has amazing throw and staying power. Evan my boyfriend has commented on it.

FINAL THOUGHTS: A keeper!

HALLOWEEN PERFUMES! Bpal- The black apple of Saturn


PERFUME: The Black Apple of Saturn

COMPANY: BPAL

AVAILABILITY: Halloween limited edition 2011

OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION:Dried Arkansas black apple, opoponax, cypress, myrrh, tobacco absolute, quince, black musk, and galbanum.

BEFORE I SMELL: I don't always like apple scents especially if they are the clean kind. Although, sometimes I can't resist, it's the fruit of sin after all.

FROM THE DECANT/BOTTLE: Flesh of baked apple and sweet raisins... A night garden with apple trees and burning incense...

WET ON SKIN: very sexy and musky. It's a different take on a fruity perfume. I don't smell the tobacco absolute.

DRY DOWN: The resins take over, I get a little bit of tobacco note and it's the sweet type, very nice. As it dries down I get more galbanum . It doesn't change that much but it has amazing staying power. I put it last night and I could smell it till the morning


FINAL THOUGHTS: Very well blended and different from other apple scents. I wish I had another decant

Mimosa, neroli, coconut

Hi guys!
First of all thank you so much for all the kind words and the support! It means a lot to me and it makes me really happy!

As you know I have started blending my own perfumes and I have received very good feedback from the ladies that they have tried them.

This one in particular is my best seller. Not that I sell large quantities but even 10 is a lot for me because I bottle 10-12 perfumes every time to keep them fresh. 

I had started blending this scent for one soap I used to make. A lovely customer of mine,Fotini,loved this scent so much and she wanted it as a perfume and I thought it was time for me to give it a go with perfume oils.

When you smell this from the bottle it has a lemony vibe mingled with the tropical coconut. The real deal happens when you put it on. It's tropical, sweet and zesty at the same time. 

It's more of a Spring like fragrance when the Bergamot trees are in bloom. Perfect for a day walk outside  or for when you need something fresh to start your day.
If you love Neroli this one it's for you!

A little goes a long way as it's very consentrated!
Unfortunately, this one will be limited.

The etsy listing

My etsy! Iris Soaps and perfumery!

Hi guys! I have great news to share!
I have finally opened my etsy shop Iris Soaps! Currently I have 2 perfumes up for sale.

Vanilla Sandalwood which is a sexy vanilla scent with a hint of pepper and powdery sandalwood drydown. This lasts all day on me. I will rename this one soon.

Mimosa-Neroli-Coconut it's exactly what the name implies a tropical-floral perfume. 

The next day or two I will list:

One thousand and one nights this is all about the warmth and abiance of telling a story:
ginger cookies,vanilla, oats and spiced milk.

Nyxtolouloudo single note: This one it means flower of the night in Greek. It's a flower that blooms only at night and has a heading and very rich odor.

All of them are in 10ml roll-on bottles in a coconut oil base.


Thanks for reading:)
