BPAL: Hollywood Babylon

This one was a freebie with a 5 ml bottle.

Hollywood Babylon

The essence of innocence shattered: glittering Egyptian amber and heliotrope, infused with the sweetness of strawberry and vanilla - dragged into debauch by lusty red musk and a dribble of black cherry.

Vial: Cherry cough syrup.

Wet: The cherry still overpowers the strawberry and everything else. Smells sort of like cough drops.

Drydown: Nicer--the amber and musk begin to come out, maybe a hint of the vanilla--the cherry is much moderated, but still present. More like perfume, less like cough drops. Not to my taste.

Dry: Pretty much the same. Not a keeper for me.
