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!

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! :)
