Off my usual topic...BPAL love

OK, I'm a closet BPAL lover.  Well, not so closet.  :D  I've mentioned before I have sensitivities (Scentsitivities LOL) and sensitive skin, sensitive scalp, sensitive most perfumes are out for me.  But these oils, for the most part, I can use!  I only have six full sizes, and a handful of imps atm, but I love every one for the most part.  My full sizes are Dana O'shee, Baobhan Sith, Eat me, Swank, Muse, and Akuma.  I have other imps that I want to get full sizes of.  But the reason for this post, other than to say I'm planning a BPAL order soon probably, is to show you my homemade BPAL box.

Yes, that's the Accolade by Edward Leighton.  I got a copy of it at my local Michaels and put it on the front of a tea box.  Then I edged it with black and silver ribbon and those celtic knot pendants, and covered the whole thing with a silvery glittery decoupage topcoat (that's the sparkly spots that you can't tell what they are LOL) actually looks a whole lot better in person.

The inside of my box:  The top Left side is my imp box, then the bottom left is my full sizes, all whopping 6.  The other top side is the rollerball ones I have that I've decanted some of all of my full sizes except Dana O'shee.  I did that when I first got them, because I was afraid the fragrance oils on their own would be too much, so I put some in a rollerball with jojoba oil to dilute it.  There are plastic droppers under them that I used to do so.  But I've since discovered that I can use the oils neat, so I won't be needing to do that again.  They travel well in that format though.

All 11 of my imps.  LOL! 

I do have a question for y'all though.  I'm open to try other similar makers of perfume oils, but have NO IDEA where to start.  Do you have any recs for good ones?  TIA!  :D


  1. I love it! I am in SERIOUS need of finding some way to manage my perfumes. Where did you find your imp holder?

    Besides BPAL (and I also love Swank and Akuma, haven't smelled the others), I really love Wiggle Perfume over on Etsy. I can't recommend them enough - the prices are great, the scents are fantastic, the packaging is super cute, and the customer service is out of this world. And the shipping time is soooo fast.

  2. Hi Kathy! My imp a bullet case I got at Dicks Sporting Goods! I don't remember the size I got. It was only 5 bucks. I'll have to check out Wiggle, thanks for the rec!!!
