Bpal: Neil Gaiman Selection Updates

A little bird whispered into my ear about possible updates to the Neil Gaiman Selections on Bpal.

If you're a collector of Bpal or just a general fan of Gaiman this may be exciting to you!

If you're unsure what Bpal is have a click over here for some info! If you have no idea who Neil Gaiman is you suffer the dire consequences of possibly being kicked off my blog permanently, ok maybe we'll forgive you but just this once! k? k.

The Muse worships at the shrine of Gaiman so anything Gaiman related is always great!

The little bird told me about a scent being released entitled Snow, Glass, Apples. Oh Joy! My heart literally stopped when I heard this! Can you imagine such a blend as this? I'm picturing something cool and refreshing with bits of fruit and and a beautiful underlay of ozone! Snow, Glass, Apples was written over 10 years ago and is a twist on the age old story of Snow White. I actually have a copy of it that was purchased from BDP at the time. I believe, don't quote me, you can find a few copies laying around on Amazon that collector's are selling if this is something that interests you. In all honesty if you're not a Gaiman fan you're sincerely not going to want to shell out the money for a copy so maybe stick to his newer works that are readily available and about.

The good news though is now you can purchase a perfume oil that captures the story! I'm very eager to hear if this is true. According to my little bird it appears that the scent was available at Bpal Will Call. Whether it was allowed to be purchased I'm unsure of as the details are foggy but it does seem that the Gaiman selection on Bpal at the moment, which consists of 7 blends, will be updated soonish!


I have high hopes for this new blend because really the ones available at the moment aren't entirely Muse approved.

In other Gaiman related news...The Graveyard Book is completed! Squeal! Around 12:55pm (UK Time) yesterday Neil updated his blog to say a few nights ago he completed the book and is now busy tweaking it (CLICK!). Needless to say I'm excited!

A new perfume oil, A new book, a new film (Coraline is being released in 2009).....A great start to Monday morning me thinks!

Hey Mandy!

I'm such a dipstick I rejected your comment so I reposted it, hope you don't mind!

Dude you are not fan of the Gaiman, for shame you didn't know Coraline is coming out next year!

but alas, it's been ruined. Freaking Dakota Fanning and Terry Hatcher are doing the voices! Shoot me in the forehead right now would ya?

Le sigh!

I guess we can't have everything....!

Well, what can I say... Your blogg actually keeps me up to date with EVERYTHING I need and like! You must be my long lost twin, taken from the cradle, raised in a foreign country, but unable to resist the calling of The Cure, Gaiman and even less able to stop the urge to get a huge collection of make-up.
It's you and me, girl. We must be kindered spirits. ;-)

I am totally in love with Gaiman, most of all the Sandman-series. That's how I met him and that is what I keep returning to. Wonderful stories!
Love his fantasy-novels as well, of course. And almost everything he touches or think about.

LOL Sminkan!

I am! I am! They carted me off to the Americas 30 some odd years ago tearing me away from my Swedish family and long lost sister ;)

LOL don't forget KISS!

I love how much we share in common! It's rather awesome isn't it? And unique to find someone of a similar nature as my tastes are eccentric to say the least ;)

I love Gaiman as well. He's a master author and amazing all around!

I'm a huge fan. I really sincerely love anything he pops out with! His graphic art projects are intense as well!

So fab! I eagerly awaiting the next book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hugs sis!
