I’m often asked what my favorite BPAL scent is. And although that’s a bit like asking which of my dogs is my favorite, there is one oil that I come back to again and again. It’s The Antikythera Mechanism, which is part of their Steamworks collection (and thankfully permanent). The notes are teakwood, oak, black vanilla and tobacco. It is absolutely the sexiest scent I own and the scent I get the most compliments on. I once had a woman follow me around a store to the point of being weird, only to finally ask me “Why do you smell so GOOD?” If you’re a fan of rich, dark and woodsy scents; you can’t go wrong with this classic BPAL oil.
Continuing with the fragrance theme…
Question of the Week: Which celebrity do you wish would create a fragrance and why? What do you think it should smell like?
Answer: I’d love a fragrance by Jon Hamm. So that my husband could wear it. Then my husband would smell like Jon Hamm. But, I didn’t really need to explain all that, did I? What would it smell like? Umm, Jon Hamm.
