Received this in a swap and now I am hooked. When I first sniffed it from the bottle, I was not very impressed-to me it smelled like Almond Extract...too foody. I had a very similar experience to other reviewers once I actually tried it on my skin. It became smoky and warm...and well, snuggly. I get more Amber than Almond. I suggest at least trying it on your skin, you might be surprised.

This is buttery almonds to my nose. Too sugary and creamy. It smells so different in the imp and then on my skin. Slowly some gentle spices creep out. I'm not in love, but it's ok

I really liked this imp on first application. It smelled like slightly sweet (but no sticky sweet or food sweet) amber with a hint of honey and a nice incense background. I thought that I might like wearing this as much as Snake Oil but no such luck. That initial sweetness wore off so quickly, in as little 10 minutes. The drydown was nothing but honey a slight smokey incense. Don't get me …Read more

This is such a gorgeous, sweet, syrupy scent. Starts drying down a little nutty, and it has a familiar note in it, that I cant pinpoint - but whatever it is, i LOVE IT. OMG. The more it starts drying, the better it gets. I could eat my arm, it smells so good.

Honey and more honey. Any more honey and I'd drown. Take this away please! To be sure, I dislike honey in anything. Just so's you know. I know it's not a stated note, but I smell it too, just like Maximina does.

Wow...Delicious. I am glad Bastet lived up to all the nice reviews. Comes out wet smelling of hot cherries and almonds. Immediately dries down so the cherry isn't as sharp. Then the almond nuttiness of it comes up. Ends up smelling comforting, buttery. I do detect an incense in there, but is actually tolerable. DH loves it.Looovvee the butteryness without being to foody of it. I definitely …Read more

This is an amazing perfume oil. I agree with the reviewer who cited the cherry marzipan effect is almost sickening at first but then it evolves into a warm, sensual golden potion. Give it a chance and you won't be disappointed. I also agree that the sillage is subtle - it stays close to the skin.

Another of my BPAL favorites. Sweet yet earthy... oh goodness this scent is heaven! I always get compliments when I wear this. If you're an amber fan you have to try Bastet! It does amber justice and is complimented well with the accompanying scents. The almond isn't overwhelming as it can often be. The musk isn't too much either. Ahhh... a perfect blend!

Okey doke: Bastet....

The description alone made me swoon...I absolutely LOVE cardamom and almond....and am now beginning to respect amber..so I have been pleased as punch to have the opportunity to try. Now mind you..I have tried this several times already...just needed to find the RIGHT time to reflect and analyze without feeling stressed or rushed...the weekend for me is perfect for …

At first pure cherry/marzipan. A little sickening it is so strong at first. BUT THEN, it immediately changes into delicately floral, pure, soft, woodsy *HONEY* on me. Looking at the notes I see there is no honey in it and I am startled. This smells like the type of honey *dripping* fresh from a honeycomb. It has a rawness to it and is good enough to lick. Deliciously golden and warm.
