fall is coming
Halloween BPAL update is up! Yay!

Here's what I have my eye on this year:

Bite Me: Croquembouche with almond silk and a drizzle of caramel.

Lambs-wool: A popular holy day beverage in 18th century Ireland: roasted apples mashed into warmed milk and ale, with nutmeg, sugar, ginger, and clove.

Suck it: Black cherry brandy.

Pumpkin Patch 2009:
Pumpkin Patch I:
Pumpkin, almond, brown musk, and honey.
Pumpkin Patch V: Pumpkin, chocolate, coffee bean, vanilla bean, and hazelnut.

and maybe:

Feeding the Dead: A barrel of beer, a pyramid of cakes, and three sticks of incense.

Pomona: Azaroles, nuts, and apple blossoms with red apple pulp, mulberry, blackberry, and pomegranate juice.

Lambs-wool and Suck it sound amazing! If only I could rationalize buying BPAL right now. :(

I'm always amused at some of the descriptions she gives things, though. What does "a pyramid of cakes" smell like? Is it different from a tower? Or Twinkhenge?

I know! It always makes me wish I had the opportunity to just smell all of them. Most of them I know I wouldn't like *on* so it makes no sense to buy them. So I'm destined not to know what things like "Unholy mist congealing into soft, white flesh, with black marble, remnants of liturgical incense, wolf's fur, and black flecks of froth." (Sarah) actually smell like!

Exactly! Though, much as I love BPAL, the purple prose is sometimes offputting. I remember seeing a description that said something about the scent of a warm prostitute's back or similar. That doesn't make me want to dab it on my wrist, I know what prostitutes are supposed to smell like!

And on a completely different note, I am madly in love with your L icon! ♥ XD

Yay, thanks! ♥ I love it (and, of course, L) too. I need to stop being a poser and read the rest of the manga. >_> Somebody needs to return them to the library so I can read em.
