You might think, from the dearth of reviews, that I have stopped testing BPAL over most of the last year. You would be wrong; I just haven't been posting them. Trying to start catching up now.

(Note: absolutely no one has to look at these. They are for my reference.)

Part 1 of an awful lot of backlogged BPAL reviews )

I was sick for many weeks, with vast phlegmdom, so I was not trying BPAL in that time. I had a bunch of ones I'd tried before then and never wrote up, and now I have started trying things again. Without further ado:

I was sick for a while and so wasn't trying BPAL. But then we had a mini-meet-and-sniff and I tried so many things. Only a tiny bit of each, so the ones that seemed nice I'd have to try at more length. But still.

BPAL is so much more fun with more people.

Oh, also, I'm thinking of making a lab order and actually getting a couple bottles of the current LE scents before they go away. On Wednesday tpau and selkiechick showed me how to decant, and selkiechick gave me a few decanting supplies, so decanting is way less alarming than I had thought. The big problem with getting decants through circles is that they end up being very expensive when you factor in postage. But for those of you who are actually around to receive face-to-face handoffs (or will be visiting!), if you are interested in decants of the bottles, I'd be happy to sell or swap.

I'm leaning towards getting Tokyo Stomp (vanilla mint) and Dogs Playing Poker: Pinched With Four Aces (Colorado Maduro tobacco wrappers, cinnamon bark, coffee bean husk, and dry woods). I'm interested in DPP: Riding the Goat as well (A rich Masonic incense coupled with mahogany wood, ebony, and pipe smoke), but it might be too woody for me, so I'll probably see if I can swap for it someday. Partly I just find dog masonry really amusing.

I'm sure my reviews are getting a lot pickier. By now if something is like something else but not better than it, I'm inclined to swap it away. As it is, I have far more imps in the 'hold on to' set than I'd ever wear; eventually I'll do a second round and get rid of anything I can't see myself definitely wearing.

I've been putting links to these mini-reviews on my gSpreadsheet, btw. Sometime I will go back and write reviews for all the ones I tried before beginning this LJ review business.

The package from the UK that I feared lost in the mail got to me after all, along with another one. :-) I'm getting very close to OMGWTFBBQ levels of imps. I figure someday eventually when I've tried most of them once, I'll have a giant super-inexpensive selloff like tempestteapot's. :-) But I can do a whole bunch of swapping, lending, and enabling first.

The list of what I have and what I especially want to swap away is here. If you're one of the people I'm already planning to swap or loan batches to, let me know which ones you're particularly interested in and I'll try those first to figure out if I can get rid of them.
