BPAL of the day: Black Forest

This is the captured scent of a cold, moonless night, lost deep within the darkest wood. Haunting and desolate, this scent evokes images of fairy tale tragedy and half-remembered nightmares. Thick, viscous pine with ambergris, black musk, juniper and cypress.

On paper, this sounds like exactly my sort of thing. In the bottle, this smells like exactly my sort of thing. But on me, some ingredient goes all baby-powdery. And that gives me a HUGE SAD. It's not prevailing, the gorgeous, thick pine is still at the top, even when it's long dry. But what should be a lovely, dark under-musk just... POOF! Baby powder. :((( I wanted this to be amazing. And it is. Just not on me.
