priala, the human phoenix  
hi all. i lurk. :P

have come into a small amount of holiday spending money and i want to do a bpal order. i know my basic standby scents and imps i want to try, but... has anyone tested/does anyone own/can anyone review for me priala, the human phoenix?

i'm wondering if the myrrhs are the overpowering scent, or if it's more of a smoke/cinnamon blend. (i do realize that the oil may smell different on me than you, but overall impressions would be great! if you've tried it and love it or think it's just godawful, PLEASE tell me! i don't want to buy a full large bottle without knowing what i'm in for. :) )

I had that once, and I remember it being more burnt cinnamon than myrrh on me, if that helps any, although the myrrh was there.

Hi there! I'd be happy to send you my decant of Priala free of charge. Just PM me your shipping address. I don't want to give it a negative review because some people really love it... you should try it for yourself.

Have you checked the reviews for the scent on the forums? (www.bpal.org) That's always the best place to look for comprehensive reviews.

i completely forgot i had an username at the forum, it's been so long since i've contemplated a new scent. usually i just love on the ones i have until i want something new.

thanks for the reminder... i was reading reviews earlier, they've been helpful.

I love Priala. It's a heavy myrrh scent on me, much more resinous and smoky than spicy and cinnamony.

i'm seeing a lot of positive reviews of it. i admit the art and the phoenix bit is what got me looking at it in the first place... i have a phoenix tattoo on my arm, and phoenix anything, i'm pretty on board. :P

resin scents turn out nicely on me... here's hoping. i think i'm going to try it before i buy it, via sharybaby's awesomeness. :D

There are lots of helpful reviews on the bpal.org forum - reviews that have almost convinced me to splurge on a bottle!

yeah, i've shied away from the forums for a while. i'm on there, but aside from today, based on this post, i think i've looked at reviews a total of twice. i was lucky enough to have an office mate for a while that had imps of FREAKING EVERYTHING, so i used to just be able to run it by her and her expert nose. :D

Smoke and cinnamon on me. Resins don't care for me, they're not bad in this one.
