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. :)

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!

Sweet, I'll keep that in mind for sure! I think I wanna wait a few weeks until I'm back in Illinois and can give you my permanent address, but I'm already excited! :)

That is totally OK with me. :) If you want to go ahead and pick the 10 GCs you want, though, you can either pay me now or later but I can go ahead and pull them so nobody else snaps them up. :)

Oh, sweet! Okay, well in that case, I think I'd like~


I can pay in about two weeks!

Bugger, did I miss out on the Cake Smash you had up?

Yeah - somebody swooped in a couple days ago and snapped it up. :(

Awesome! I'll put them aside for you. It'll be $8.50 whenever you can get around to paying. :) My paypal is girlwiththebubblegun at gmail, and if you're OK with paying paypal fees (paypal takes a chunk out of whatever money I make), it comes out to $9.06!

That's fair enough, I should have jumped while I had the chance. Ah well. <3

Hey can I please switch out Tamora with Nocturne? :) I just realized Tamora has Vanilla Bean in it and I'm not too fond of that scent. Thanks! :)

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. :<)

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.

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. :)

If they are I will totally give them to you, hon!

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?

Date: 2011-07-25 11:17 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] rhetoricians.livejournal.com
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! :)

Okay! I would like:

Nostrum Remedium
The Harlot's House

And I am willing to cover the Paypal fees :)

From: [identity profile] rhetoricians.livejournal.com
That would be lovely! :3 That'd be $11.64 with fees. :) My paypal is girlwiththebubblegun@gmail! :)

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. :)

Hi, I would have liked to help with the paypal fees but I'm pretty stretched by buying this as it is :/ I'm really sorry.

Payment has been sent. Thank you. xx

I understand - the only reason I'm selling it is because I am equally as stretched! :)
