Xander reading

The best of Giles, 2006

The buffyversetop5 community has now opened its doors for two weeks of top five lists, for fan material produced in 2006. Once again, I'd like to make sure our beloved Giles is represented.

Make your suggestions! Or hey, write your own top 5 lists! It's fun, and the more people do it, the more fun we all have. Since I'm the reading type, I'm going to concentrate on stories. I'll try to cover the full range of pairings, in an attempt to represent the goodness of Giles fandom. But maybe you know way more than I do about a particular pairing, or about the best icons.

If I'd had my act together, I'd have a list or three made already. Bah. I am lazy.

I've now posted all four lists to the comm.

BPAL Wolf Moon 2006

Sometimes I don't care for the lunacy blends. Bitter Moon was, well, um, bitter. Not for me. But the two scents released for Wolf Moon were awesome.

Wolf Moon 2006
Winter air, Terebinth pine, juniper berry, dusty orris, deep amber, white sandalwood, black musk, blue cedar, and tonka.
A big wolfy, Spitzy dog, come to meet you from his run in the forest. Night, wintertime. His coat is covered with snow and pine needles. Cold tree-scent. Refreshing. Could be worn by a man as easily as a woman.

Lycaon
Blackened myrrh, crushed olive leaf, black musk, spikenard, frankincense, cypress wood, opoponax, white ginger, and patchouli.
Exactly the sort of BPAL blend I'm a sucker for: incense softened by musk. Deep and dark. Mysterious. I might almost love this more than Schwarzer Mond. It's similar, though SM is more resinous.
