BPAL Sales Master Page

Feel free to ignore this, LJ friends! I wanted to have a post on my journal so I can keep all of my BPAL sales straight. :) Unless of course you are my LJ friend and into BPAL, in which case, please peruse!

WTF is a BPAL? - BPAL is short for Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs, a perfume oil company started a few years ago. It is run by a lovely husband and wife team, and has a hugely wide fan-base. It has scents inspired by everything from the periodic table to Alice In Wonderland, to an entire line of scents based on Neil Gaiman novels.

What is a BPTP? - The Black Phoenix Trading Post - a sister-site to BPAL. They sell socks, t-shirts, bath oils, room sprays, and other BPAL-scented goodies.

... imps? What are those? - An imp is a 1 mL sample of a BPAL perfume oil. It usually gets quite a few wears out of it. A "goblin squirt" is the imp version of a room spray.

 What is the difference between "GC" and "LE" imps you listed down there?  - A GC scent is a General Catalog one - it is always available, and is cheaper because it won't be going anywhere any time soon. An LE scent is Limited Edition - it was only around for a short amount of time. I have priced all the GCs at a flat, lower rate. LEs are priced based on their rarity/how long ago they retired, and both are priced lower if they are not as full.

So if that's an imp, how big is a bottle? - Bottles are 5 mL in size and get a lot of wears out of them. Sometimes I sell bottles with wandcaps - this means that the bottle has a glass rod hanging down inside the bottle, and you can use that rod to apply the perfume oil.

Why should I buy BPAL? - It's a unique fragrance experience, very different from your run-of-the-mill perfume. Once you smell or try BPAL blends, it's very hard to go back to the commercialized stuff!

Ooh, this looks interesting! I think I might have to check it out in the future. :)

[identity profile] rhetoricians.livejournal.com 2011-07-25 04:47 am (UTC)(link)
Definitely let me know if you're interested! I like to throw together 10-imp packs for newcomers for $12, which is a pretty sweet deal!

[identity profile] kittenmorag.livejournal.com 2011-07-25 05:08 am (UTC)(link)
Bugger, did I miss out on the Cake Smash you had up?


[identity profile] rhetoricians.livejournal.com 2011-07-25 05:17 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah - somebody swooped in a couple days ago and snapped it up. :(

Oh man, if Pumpkin Smash, the Harlot's House, and Gluttony are still available when I get back from vacation mid-August, I will be aaaall over them. :O
(I'd get them now but I'm broke til the end of the week, and after that I can't have perfumes coming in because they won't arrive in time for someone to rescue them from the extremely hot mailbox. :<)

[identity profile] rhetoricians.livejournal.com 2011-07-25 08:17 pm (UTC)(link)
If they are I will totally give them to you, hon!

[identity profile] gandolforf.livejournal.com 2011-07-25 04:58 pm (UTC)(link)
I might be interested, but I have no idea what sort of thing I might like. The imps sound like a good idea, since they're very inexpensive. I do like fruit and flower scents, but I'm not looking for anything very sweet. Suggestions?

May I tentatively reserve the Nostrum Remedium? (I mean, along with any others that might sound good or that you suggest.) I think I am interested in that one, at the least.
Edited 2011-07-25 17:02 (UTC)

[identity profile] rhetoricians.livejournal.com 2011-07-25 08:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Sure! If you google "bpal.org {scent name}," you can find pages and pages of people's reviews and impressions of the scents, so you don't feel totally blind going in. :) I'll definitely set Nostrum Remedium aside for you. Looking at what you like, I'd say perhaps Tamora, Les Infortunes, Phobos, Blood or maybe Harlot's House - they're sweet and floral without being too floral. I have to go to the post office tomorrow so if you do end up wanting some, let me know and they can go out tomorrow!

PS: I just added "Bewitched" and "Phantasm," which I think would be right up your alley. :)

Hi, could I maybe ask how much it would be for: Dracul, Goblin, Greed, Atlas, Cupcake Splatter Pattern Analysis, Fruitcake, Huesos de Santo, Mechanical Phoenix, and Standing Female Nude with postage to the UK?

[identity profile] rhetoricians.livejournal.com 2011-07-25 11:17 pm (UTC)(link)
Dracul, Goblin, Greed, Atlas - $1.50x4 = $6
Cupcake = $3
Fruitcake = $3.50
Huesos = $1.50
Mechanical Phoenix = $3
Standing Female =$1
Shipping = $3.50

So the whole shebang would be $21.50, but I'll knock it down to $20! If you're OK with that, my paypal is girlwiththebubblegun at gmail.com. I actually have to go to the PO tomorrow morning, so that is when they would go out! (if you're OK with covering paypal fees so they don't bite me in the butt, the total would be $20.91!). If you can get payment to me by around noon July 26th (EST), they can go out that day! :)

Re: Tokyo Stomp

[identity profile] rhetoricians.livejournal.com 2011-07-27 10:18 pm (UTC)(link)
Absolutely! I typically charge about $3.75 UK shipping just to make sure, so the total would be $38.75. If you're OK with covering paypal fees, which would help me out a great deal, the total would be $40.22. My paypal is girlwiththebubblegun@gmail.com, and I can get it out first thing tomorrow as long as I get payment by about 9:30am EST. :)

[identity profile] fetish911.livejournal.com 2011-07-29 02:25 am (UTC)(link)
Hi! Are the following imps still avail?

tokyo stomp
pumpkin smash

I would be interested....

[identity profile] rhetoricians.livejournal.com 2011-07-29 11:35 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes, all 3 are! Does $14 shipped sound OK to you?

I'd like your Dungeon Atmo Spray Sample, please. :)

[identity profile] rhetoricians.livejournal.com 2011-07-30 01:06 am (UTC)(link)
I can definitely do that. :) If you are OK paying paypal fees (and I assume you're in the US), the total is $7.26 to girlwiththebubblegun at gmail. I can try to get it out Monday - I sprained my ankle last night, though, so I can't 100% guarantee I can get it out Monday. But if not Monday, then Tuesday for certain.

They are, and you absolutely can! That would be $11.75. It would mean a great deal to me if you could cover paypal fees - which would make the total $12.41. My paypal is girlwiththebubblegun at gmail.com. :)

OK, with fees, that's $14.98! My paypal is girlwiththebubblegun at gmail.com and I will get 'em out first thing tomorrow! :)

Hello! I hope you don't mind this question, but... Would you be willing to hold the Gingerbread Poppet bottle (and, um, quite a few imps -- I've seen ten or so I want, and I haven't even gone through the whole list yet) for me up until the 15th? I am trying to behave and wait for this billing cycle to be over before I buy more stuff. :)

Thanks so much!

[identity profile] rhetoricians.livejournal.com 2011-08-13 02:59 pm (UTC)(link)
I absolutely will hold them for you. :) I am really bad about remembering these things, but I'll try to PM you to see where we stand on the 15th. :) Though it would help me out a tiny bit if you wouldn't mind telling me which imps you want so I don't accidentally sell them!

Shipping would be international (to Canada). :)

Oh, wonderful! Let me see ... it's $32 before shipping. Because of the weight/international, is $36 okay? I need to pad the crap out of the bottles.

Hi, I'm interested in these two imps, but I'd like an estimate for shipping to Singapore first.
Your prices are in USD right?

Re: Chimera and Lady of Shallott

[identity profile] rhetoricians.livejournal.com 2011-09-22 04:16 am (UTC)(link)
I'd probably charge about $3.25 shipping to Singapore, as that's typically how much I charge internationally. :) And yep, USD!
