Long time no see, Perfume Reviews!

I've got just a couple, but I wanted to actually post them while you could still buy the scents I'm reviewing. They're part of Blooddrop's Holiday 2010 line and will be available until "late December/early January or as supplies remain."

Multiple people whose tastes I'm inclined to trust suggested I check out Blooddrop. I'm really glad I did!

I ordered:
Glisten (the hair spritz) in the Blessed scent
Devonshire Cottage perfume oil
(another bottle that's a gift for a friend)

And she sent along a bottle of Merci 27 (her seasonal perfume, a gift with larger orders) and a sample of Eau Douce (great story about this below the cut.)

First order! )

Nocturne Alchemy's Eternal Cairo -- Egyptian Amber, Egyptian Red Amber, White Amber and Egyptian Musk.

Kind of a light, musky amber that really doesn't grab me as much as I expected. It's a lighter version of Eternal Egypt and makes me think that the slightly aquatic note I smelled in Eternal Egypt was the Egyptian musk.

Eternal Cairo is one of the NA's Eternals and is a General Catalog scent available here.

Blooddrop's Purr (Summer '08 LE)-- Sandalwood, cognac, black currant and fig.

Most of what I get at first is a sort of dark, fruity scent; the black current and fig combo is a good one. I also smell something that's oddly like brown sugar, which is unexpected but kind of nice. I don't get any of the cognac scent, but after about five minutes, I am getting a nice undernote of sandalwood. It eventually settles into a lovely, darkly sweet (but not overly sweet) scent. I really like it, but while this was a Summer LE, it's almost too rich for a warm day; I'll be more likly to wear it in the evening or in Fall/Winter.

There are three bottles left at the Blooddrop Etsy Store.

I'm posting these reviews because Astrid of Blooddrop has ten bottles of "Madame Claire de Lune Cidre Doux au Poire" up at her Etsy shop as well as 4 bottles of "The (un)Poisoned Tea Cup." Get them if you can, both scents are awesome.

Astrid of Blooddrop is asking if there's interest in a rerelease of her Vanille Noir. Originally this was a limited edition, sold in a 1/4 oz fancy bottle, but she's asking if people would be interested in it in her normal 5ml bottles.

Dark, intoxicating, mesmerizing and so incredibly arousing. Vanille Noire was created as a heavenly, yet sinfully, decadent perfume oil. A simple description would be a spiced vanilla liquor, but it is so much more than that. It has been specially bottled in a lovely little faceted glass bottle, as only a precious little gem would, and instead of a label, it has a little tag that has been attached to the bottle via a dainty little satin ribbon. For this holiday fragrance, you are being treated to a 10ml, instead of 8ml! Vanille Noire is a concoction of Bourbon vanilla, black pepper, white cognac, honey absolute, butter CO2, cinnamon leaf and dark patchouli.

If you're interested, let her know here.

The economy is hitting hard all over and the small business woman is really hurting. Astrid at blooddrop is looking to expand her customer base so I figured I would make a post over here at Dreamwidth and use this fantastic new comm like it is supposed to :)

Anyone have any experiences with Blooddrop? Tell me your favorites!

I absolutely cannot live without her scent At Denny's After Rocky, which is a blueberry pancake scent. Dead freaking on.

White Pumpkin is a joy to wear as well.

I haven't tried a lot of her general catalog scents but her LEs are so awesome. My favorite LE thus far has to be Abbie Normal which is a marshmallow popcorn scent! I hear Buche De Noel is absolutely amazing, I hope to try it sometime.

FWIW: I'm not affiliated with Blooddrop at all, just a fan thats hoping to enable people to her wonderful scent line :)
