I am a huge fan of BPAL. They have stellar customer service and a very loyal following. Their 'crap' is a product line that the makers spend a lot of time and love creating. I feel it's a quality stuff.
I have had a bottle of the absinthe blend for a couple of years. I find it to be subtle, yet delightful. It doesn't jump off the skin as, "Hey, smell me I'm wearing absinthe!". Instead there are notes that are caught by the nose at different times that remind me of the different things that I love about absinthe.
