I'm finally caving and buying some imps.

Tell me what you like - I've read the message boards but I really want to know what my friends are into.

I'm thinking Jezebel, Eclipse, Dee, and a few others.

Tell, tell, tell.

I can't afford BPAL. I really can't, and personally am happy to spritz rosewater through the day.

I don't read perfumery boards, but I've seen on LJ several times that people were disappointed in their imps. So I'd maybe go slow and check it out before making a big order.

Oh, good to know.

I can spring for an imp or two at $3.50/each - there are definitely some faves and not-so-faves on the message boards and I'm wanting some personal testimonials from people I know.

Someone gave me a neroli/jasmine perfume oil from the Body Shop, and while it's nice I'm looking for something a little different...

The seed boxes in your entry were such a welcome, friendly sight. I'm really only 6 weeks away from starting seeds, if that...

I like amber & vanilla & patchouli so keep that in mind

Snake oil
Another real crowd pleaser is Dorian (it didn't work well on me but it smelled wonderful on J. but he thought it wasn't his bag...not butch enough, apparently)
The Lion (lovely amber + chamomile, I wanna say)
Vixen (orangey sweetass vanilla patchouli) is my favorite

lighter scents I love are
Tzadim Nadarim (sp!) (it's spikenard and olive and something else...gorgeous)
Xiuchituli (light resin and vanilla and orange) I am sure I mispelled that too.
Morroco- light but spicy carnation

I don't do limited editions because it makes me feel crazy but I do love imps. I think it's all a lot of fun.
