And another quick update -- Lupercalias are up on the BPAL website.  It's a massive update, with lots of good stuff, including another Shunga series (dirty Japanese paintings, woo), an Aphrodite series (inspired by vintage nude postcards) and a Box of Chocolates. 

I've put in an order for one bottle of Lupercalia goodness, and ordered 17 decants.  I will, naturally, post reviews when things have arrived.

So, the question remains: what did/will you order, if anything?  And if not, what's most tempting to you?

I was bad, but not as bad as I wanted to be, thanks to some fast-talking by our Emma Hee!. I ordered:

Giant Vulva: Skin musk, sugar cane, honey, beeswax, vanilla flower, and copal.

Man With Phallus Head: Smoky musk, ambergris, tonka bean, brown sandalwood, daemonorops, black currant, and honey.

Melainis: Teak, frankincense, caramel, oakmoss, red currant, labdanum absolute, bitter clove, patchouli, star anise, tobacco, and black musk.

Also added in two much-desired Carnival Diabolics - Mmme Moriarty, and Illustrated Woman to the order.

I managed to snag spaces in a decant circle for
Makhanitis: Black plum, burgundy wine, sandalwood, and champaca.

Pothon Meter: Rose absolute, caramel, ripe red berries, pink pepper, Balsam of Peru, cognac, and benzoin

Glukuprikos: Ambergris, pale musk, peru balsam, golden amber, cedar, lavender, spikenard, narcissus, vanilla caramel, white sandalwood, and woodmoss.

I also got in on a Shunga decant circle, so I'll be getting all but two (or one if the waiting list goes through) of the Shungas I didn't get bottles of.

I forced myself not to order things with ambergris and sandalwood (mostly). I don't think they work on me, which is probably a good thing given how tempting some of the scents including them were otherwise!

Ambergris and I have a grudging partnership. If it's in a blend that works well on me, it enhances it nicely, but if it's in a blend with something iffy on me, it can enhance /that/, and make it go all sorts of wrong.

Oh my gods, this update was full of *so* many things that I wanted! I'm waiting for my next paycheck to get a bottle of

413 U.S. 15 / Miller Vs California: Leather, cognac, fig, ripe berry, and cream, stuffed into a plain brown paper bag.

I simply -have- to own that scent. I feel completely unguilty about it, as proceeds go to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, which I am an adamant supporter of.

With this I'm ordering a bottle of Priala, The Human Phoenix.

I've gotten in a decant circle for Pothon Meter, Giant Vulva and Khrysee (Vanilla amber and orange blossom.) so far. There are others I want, but we'll see how that goes.

I have a funny feeling 413 is one I'm going to end up needing a full bottle of.

413 is terribly tempting, and that whole "Good Cause" thing is not doing much to dissuade me. I'm going to have to force myself to wait and get a decant first, though, because leather and fig can both go either way on me.

I ordered decants of the following:
413 U.S. 15 / Miller Vs California
Dark Chocolate And Cherry
Dark Chocolate And Pepper-Smoked Caramel
Milk Chocolate Buttercream
White Chocolate, Marshmallow, And Coconut
White Chocolate And Strawberry
Flowering Chrysanthemums
Lovers In A Ricefield
Lovers With Rutting Cats
Voyeurs Among The Cherry Blossoms
Pothôn Mêtêr

I bought a bottle of Giant Vulva from the Lab. I'm sure there are more I'm going to want to try! I sort of hope that not many of my decants work on me, so that I don't have to go and buy bottles of them thereafter!
