BPAL Flower Moon

Further proof that I am the worst photographer ever!

Flower Moon was part of the Lunacy Collection of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab "BPAL" and it only sold for 24 hours on April 24th of this year.

The description the website gave on Flower Moon was: May marks the apex of the year's fertility, expresses the reawakening of the sexuality of the Earth and her inhabitants, and May's full moon celebrates both the fecundity of the creatures and flora of this world and the vibrancy, rejuvenation and life-affirming energy of Spring. Flower Moon embodies the unrestrained bliss, energy and color of the season: a bouquet of vivid, sexy blooms, tulip, daffodil, violet, dewdrop, rhododendron, iris, daisy, and a mix of California wildflowers.

In the bottle it smells a bit medicinal and I was almost certain that I wouldn't like this one. On my skin it started off with a melon fragrance with a hint of amber. I hate melon! I thought this was going to be a basic fruity/floral fragrance and I was disappointed to say the least. It smelled like another BPAL I've tested in the past and I don't remember it's name. When you test dud after dud, they all sort of smell similar until you hit one that really strikes your fancy.

Several hours after I applied the fragrance the flowers seemed to blossom out of nowhere, however it's not really a fresh floral fragrance. More of a dry floral fragrance bouquet. You know how fabric softener sheets smell? This is what I get from this fragrance but it's better.

When I was little I had a doll by Fisher Price that was in a blue outfit and she had a string you'd pull and she'd say "Night, Night" and some other things. I used to call her Baby Cindy and she was my favorite doll. My parents bought me several of them because I had a habit of losing them. When I finally got a Cabbage Patch Kid, my Mom got rid of Baby Cindy. While I adored my Cabbage Patch Kids, it still makes me sad that she did that. Anyhow, whenever my Dad would do laundry I'd collect all the used fabric softener sheets and make a bed for Baby Cindy because I loved how they smelled and how she'd smell after sleeping in her bed.

I love this fragrance! The lasting power is incredible being that it's an oil I can apply it a number of different ways. I'd wear this year round as a comfort fragrance from morning to night. I really adore it and am glad that I purchased this one.

Flower Moon retailed for $15/5 ml. more than likely people will have them up for swap on MUA or Ebay.

I love baby cindy and her fabric softener comforter. Moms did the most callous things, didn't they?
Baby Cindy was the best, I wish I still had her!
