Hooray. We have doctors. As soon as the health care paperwork goes through, I can schedule a much needed check-up, and then schedule with the "lady-doctor".

In other news, I'm awake and I smell like The Unicorn. It's a good thing that I bought a bottle of it, because I spilled the half-imp I had left onto my neck and chest when my Siamese decided to give me a head-bump. Afterwards, he was extremely snuggly, burying his face in my chest. I'm resisting the urge to purchase some more BPAL, especially with the new Carnival Diabolique out. I simply do not have enough money until Friday to even consider it, but when I do, I'll be using BPAL as an incentive in my fitness routine. If I walk 2 mi at least twice per week for a month and skip my weekly lunch out, I can use the $20 I'd save towards BPAL purchases. What do you all think?

I've managed to get a few things done over the weekend, with the majority in the wee hours. So, overall, this is shaping up to be a good start to the week. What's more, my energy level is extraordinarily high for only having taken an hour nap.

YAY!

My bottle of the Unicorn arrived, which makes me so happy, but also toybox_riot dropped off a few imps for me that did not suit her as well. Her descriptions cracked me up, because I totally got what she meant when I opened the imps.



Shroud
Nosferatu
Nyx

Old Scratch
Fruitcake (sniffie)
Shadow Witch Orchid (sniffie)

So far, I've tested Nosferatu, Old Scratch and Shroud.

Nosferatu : I understand her comparison to embalming fluid in biology class, because it definitely has a sickly sweet tone in the bottle, but on me, it smells like sangria. Out of curiosity, I layered The Unicorn over it, which actually mellowed the sharp, sweet tang. It definitely needs something earthy to tone it down, like sandalwood.

Old Scratch:
Yeah, baby. This is it. I love lavender, and that note rises to the top. It's a little masculine, but refreshing.

Shroud : Like a wedding veil; old perfume, flowers and dust. On me, I detected a food scent, like crushed herbs, which soon turned into a light 'dusty library, old book' smell. If the note were stronger, I might not like this fragrance much. I'm not sure if I'd wear it.

I'm so psyched right now. I can't wait until tomorrow to try more on.

Since I have done well with dragon's blood in the past, I bought two bottles of Dragon's Blood fragrance oil from The Magick Moon. I tested a small amount on my wrist last night, without any reaction. Since I amp cinnamon, the cinnamon undertone was sharp on first application, but once dry, the other notes of the fragrance were well-balanced and subdued it.
This morning, however, I decanted a small amount into a spray bottle for travel. And discovered that although it suited me,  that I am allergic.  (My guess is the cinnamon, since bottles are clearly marked: "Discontinue use if allergic reaction occurs.") Now my neck is red, itchy and painfully hot... and, sadly, I have to part with these items.

Dragon's Blood Fragrance Oil has a mysterious scent that is slightly sweet and spicy. It has a warm, earthy scent, with notes of amber, vanilla, sandalwood, light tones of musks and hints of Asian florals to bring out subtle spice undertones. Great for all year. Aromatherapy benefits: Energizing, strengthening, purifying.

If anyone is interested in two half-ounce bottles, email me: brendaleeellis724@hotmail.com
Make me an offer, for some, either or both; for sale or trade...  At this point, I'm fairly flexible.
Paypal accepted, and preferred. Price and shipping costs negotiable.
