<b>BPAL description</b>: <i>A venerable New England university, whose vast library holds many rare, diabolical and obscure arcane works, including one of the few surviving legitimate copies of the Necronomicon. Home to innumerable scholars of the esoteric and the occult, and the notorious Dr. Herbert West. The scent of Irish coffee, dusty tomes and polished oakwood halls. (Gender neutral)</i><br><br>
I heard so many people raving about <b>Miskatonic University</b> that I simply <i>had</i> to get an imp when I saw someone swapping one. When I received it, I excitedly opened the imp, and breathed in the warm, sweet, and creamy scent of Baily's Irish Cream, and I was so excited I thought I may have found the <i>best</i> BPAL scent <i>ever</i>.<br><br>
Boy, was I ever wrong.<br><br>
Within seconds of touching my skin, the "dusty tomes" was the predominant note. There were no "oakwood halls" and the Irish cream scent faded into the background. It reminded me of standing in an extremely dusty room that hasn't seen fresh air in a hundred years, with the very faint aroma of brewing coffee wafting in from somewhere down a hallway fairly far away. So it's not <i>totally</i> a bad scent (the Irish coffee note saves it), but it does make me curl up my nose in a not-so-good way. <br><br>
This scent does to me the <i>exact</i> same thing that <b>Dorian</b> does to me, where it pretty much turns to musty dust on me. Very sad, considering both of these scents are ones that most BPALers I know rave about.
