BPAL Snow Moon

Do my pictures suck or what?

My Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab (BPAL) order arrived about a month ago but I haven't really been much in the testing mood. I couldn't decide what to wear this afternoon and reached my bottle of Snow Moon.

Snow moon was sold for 24 hours on November 15th 2005 and was described as: In December, the skeletal, ice-rimmed fingers of winter take hold, and the nights are long, chill and dark. The first flurries of snow touch the land, and the earth itself becomes quiet. A scent of purity and silence, soft with falling snow, as dark as Midwinter: an icy flurry over the winter blooms of narcissus, pansy crocus, dahlia, tulip, chrysanthemum and white rose, with a hint of fir and birch.

It starts off with a powerful evergreen fragrance. I happen to be addicted to the smell of evergreens, as a kid I used to rub my hands on the pine sap from the trees on my school campus. A floral bouquet comes softly through the evergreen scent with the chrysanthemum being the most evident floral. It's the chrysanthemum from BPAL's Harvest Moon that really draws me in so I'm really loving this fragrance!

The staying power is fair, you'd think at first that a little goes a long way but after a while it starts to fade fast. When I exercise, I remove the fragrance I'm wearing most of the time as the scent can become irritating or overwhelming but kept this one on and it didn't bother me at all. It's a very fresh scent that's perfect for this time of year.

As it was a limited fragrance, it's no longer available for purchase but can be found on Ebay!
