BPAL Yule Update

++THE NUTCRACKER: ACT 3
THE KINGDOM OF SWEETS
An empire of jellybeans, rock candy, sours, lollipops, gumdrops, peppermint sticks, held together by taffy mortar.  Yes.

SUGAR PLUM FAIRY
Queen of the Kingdom of Sweets: sugar plums, vanilla-infused sugar, tiare, amber musk, apricot peel, and a light dusting of cacao.  Yes, again.

MOTHER GINGER
From beneath her skirts emerge eight gingerbread children: gingerbread, French vanilla, sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and marshmallow cream.   Hoping the other notes overwhelm the gingerbread.  Will probably be too foody for me.

+ Divertissment
THE SPANISH DANCE
Chocolate, orange blossom honey, and pomegranate.  Yes.

THE ARABIAN DANCE
Leather, coffee, hazelnut, tobacco, and Middle Eastern spices.  Yes, but thinking it might be better on Jason.

THE CHINESE DANCE
Green and black tea, King mandarin, violet, blackcurrant, and wormwood.  Yes, maybe, yes, no, yes, and wtf.

THE RUSSIAN DANCE
Florentine iris, black tea, labdanum, patchouli, champaca flower, benzoin, and ambergris.  Yes, eh, huh, hell no, eh, sometimes, and sometimes.  Shame as I adore this song; it's tied for number 15 out of my whole playlist.

DANCE OF THE MIRLITONS
Marzipan, Burmese rosewood, white sandalwood, Somalian rose, tonka bean, rum accord, and white musk.  Maybe, yes, maybe, no, maybe, maybe, and hell yes.  Will be reading the reviews of this one.

THE WALTZ OF THE FLOWERS
White musk, Madonna lily, jasmine sambac, ylang ylang, bourbon vanilla, and clove.  Hell yes, yes, hell no, eh no, hell yes, okay. 

VALSE FINALE ET APOTHÉOSE
The return journey: three honeys, white mint, and apple blossom.
  Yes.


Well, I'm screwed.  Sweets are the last category that don't work on me that well, but that I keep ordering.  On first looking through, I thought I needed to have everything, but I narrowed it down to half decants of Kingdom of Sweets, Mother Ginger, Arabian, and Valse, and full decants of Sugar Plum Fairy and Spanish.  Oh, and the Cold Moon shirt is just gorgeous.  Wish Beth would realize that not everyone lives in California, and offer the fall and winter moons as hoodies.  

I'm behind on comments and have a new address to give out and still have to do my exercises.  Hoping to catch up at some point, but there's all that packing.....

Comments

Mother ginger and the sugar plum fairy sound amazing! And hoodies would be nice, wouldn't they?

Take care, don't worry about responding to comments if you're busy.
Oh wow, Mother Ginger is so me, I may have to actually order some. Haven't bought bpal in forever. Of course, I do have 2 bottles of GP.
I'll keep you in mind if it doesn't work for me. I'm really thinking it'll be too foody....I tried GP awhile back, and that was the case, so.....
Saw you placed your own order. :D *hugs back*
