BPAL #2 of the day: Cheshire Cat

I had a shower earlier and the scent from my make-me-sparkly-everywhere-yes-everywhere dry oil body spray has worn off and I'm not ready for Nanshe-sleep yet so I threw on some Cheshire Cat. I so totally want a bottle of this sometime, because sometimes a girl just needs to smell like candy and madness.

Grapefruit, red currant, dark musk, Roman chamomile, delphinium, and lavender.

It's definitely the Disney Cheshire Cat. It's super pink and purple stripey with a huge smile and those yellow eyes that give the indication of the hint of malice in his madess. We are all, in fact, mad here.

As per usual, I'm not in accordance with the forum generalization of hardcore grapefruit. I'd love that, but I'm just not getting it. I'm getting.... well, the Disney Cheshire Cat. The grapefruit is there, but it's pink grapefruit surrounded by pinkness. Not flowery or fruity pink, more of a cotton candy pink without actually smelling like cotton candy itself. There's a definite under-musk that gives it its cattiness and the grapefruit does add a gorgeous sharpness that catches you off guard and taps you on the shoulder when you're not looking and is gone before you can turn your head to see who tapped you, but the smile of it is still hanging in midair, creeping you the fuck out. I reallyreallyreally want a bottle of this. It's a perfect example of totally-harmless-kooky-ain't-I-bonkers? with underlying violent, unpleasant tendencies masquerading as SUPER FUCKING SUGAR COATED SWEET which is pretty much my default in social situations. It's definitely the most me BPAL scent I've tried. My imp's almost gone & I got it less than a month ago. I'm using it up way too quickly. It's delicious and just right and I'm not sure how I'll live when my imp runs dry.
