Indie Advent Calendar: Day 16- BPAL’s Morocco

Hey friends!

I think Mr. Danger was messing with my control freak tendencies. He put two perfumes back-to-back. MUST REARRANGE. However, I’m not allowed to peek, so I will painfully accept my not perfectly ordered fate.

Today’s perfume sample, Morocco from BPAL, is very pleasant though, and a great scent for indie newbies and pros alike. So I guess it’s okay that Mr. Danger did not arrange the calendar to my perfectionist tendencies. It is not, I must go organize something.

Anyway, check out the scent for today, and if you are wondering why my husband is putting items in small boxes, read the intro post here.

I haven’t mentioned this in awhile, but the free advent calendar boxes by HeyLook are so adorable and I love the design. If you want to grab yourself a free set check them out here.

Anyway, I picked Morocco for my first BPAL order because it was supposed to be one of their most popular scents. I figured I couldn’t go wrong with some of their best sellers. (Especially since I already picked out two that smelled like, “fire” and “dirt” respectively. It was time to play it safe.)

Morocco-The intoxicating perfume of exotic incenses wafting on warm desert breezes. Arabian spices wind through a blend of warm musk, carnation, red sandalwood and cassia.
I’m starting to find that I’m very picky about incense and spice scents, but Morocco is very pleasant. The spices are soft, not overwhelming, and the musk note makes it mellow and enjoyable. Instead of thick or cloying, (like I find many incense scents), it’s kinda romantic and comforting. While I find it’s nice to wear, I don’t know if it’s necessarily something I would reach for everyday. It’s a bit too traditional perfume smelling for me, and I’ve gotten a bit spoiled by really interesting scents. However, it’s still a really well made scent.

I think this perfume would make a great gift, because it seems very universally pleasing. It would also be a good starting point for people who want to jump into indies.

Questions of the Day:
-Have you tried Morocco or BPAL?
-Do you have any “safe” scents?
