I received a very much appreciated care package from my parents in the States. They sent jerky (which I love and crave) and sunflower seeds (ditto). Oh, yes, you can find sunflower seeds in health food stores and so on…the unsalted, unroasted kind. What the hell use is that?
And perfumes from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab. Mmmnnn…I’m becoming such a BPAL fangirl, I just wish that they sold them in the UK. I got:
Asian plum, orchid, daffodil, jasmine and white musk.
Grapefruit, red currant, dark musk, Roman chamomile, delphinium, and lavender.
The perfume of a demon’s favored consort, or of the devil herself. Oleander with wet, sweet mandarin, lush magnolia, a rush of deep musk and a touch of spice.
And they threw in a handful of imps, which are their tiny sample bottles. I’m drowning in scent. I love the descriptions on their site, and the (supposed) components of the scent. For instance, Miller’s Daughter was one of the imps that I received, and supposedly it smells like gold, spun straw, and amber. I’m pretty sure that straw might be the only one of those that might actually have a scent, but it smells like gold would smell if you could smell it. :) The same for things like ozone, grave dirt, and so on.
Oh my…Gluttony, one of the seven deadly sins: Thick, sugared and bloated with sweetness. Dark chocolate, vanilla, buttercream, and hops with pralines, hazelnut, toffee and caramel.
I think I gained five pounds just reading that.
