We have a shiny new support portal

Open the Help Desk

It’ll be fleshed out over time, so you might not be able to find the answer you need just yet.

Please do get in the habit of trying though — to reduce the support burden on Client Services, so we can spend less time answering support inquiries and more on providing expeditious resolution!

If you know for sure you already need assistance,
hop straight to opening a support ticket.

This is the best way to get inquiries directly to Kaitlin since, due to a large volume and the need to focus, she does not monitor DMs on any social media platform. It’ll be assigned to her and she will try to respond when there is bandwidth. Thank you for understanding!

  1. The Bard Queen is such an incredible perfume oil. The scent is positively enchanting, it’s uplifting and so versatile. Works wonders for inspiration, including finishing up drafts.

  2. The scent is glorious and you really feel more lyrical and in touch with the muses when using it. Words flow with ease, but also beauty.

  3. Going to be buying this one a second time! I found it extremely successful in helping me reach my daily wordcount goal on a writing project. I also put it on before going to a social gathering and made a bunch of great connections throughout the evening (and I’m usually a shy person)

  4. The scent is divine. It was life saver when I had a series of work events where I had to be social but was running out of steam. I felt at ease and found the words that I needed. It was an instant social pick-me-up!

  5. I have enjoyed wearing this when I am working on artistic projects and has been manifesting more as getting more attention for my work, i.e. I was asked to do a workshop for poetry while working with this, which was amazing. I love it!

  6. Don’t sleep on this offering. The Bard Queen is both the deepest & subtlest of the QT perfumes. I applied this before doing a virtual poetry reading, excerpting work I’d written on political activism. It went brilliantly and I felt truly elated afterwards, receiving many compliments from friends, & emails from attendees and well-established professors. It helped me to create an impression in a space I really needed to! The scent also lingers & gains in complexity as you wear it, which is not true of all the BPAL perfumes (alas). Snap it up while you still can!

  7. I was having trouble getting off the ground writing something of a political/social justice nature and getting close to my deadline, so I decided it would be the perfect occasion to test out this particular offering from the QT series. Honestly, this worked almost too well, and I was able to finish my writing, editing, and stylistic ~polishing~ *with time to spare* – which never happens around here! In other circles I’d have to make a disclaimer about the possibility of this all being a placebo effect, but here, I can give full credit where it’s due. Thank you Bard Queen!

  8. I really was going to pass on the Quicksilver Tongue series. I’m not an artist or a performer, so I didn’t think it would apply to me. Then I read the part about “play” in the main description, and that really hit home. I miss playing and the wild childlike pursuit of joy and expression. Much of what this series does is makes it easier to tap into that “Play” without self-judgement. It’s so much fun!

    Bard Queen in particular gives me a sense of ease in self-expression. I’m less self conscious when I engage with it and find myself saying to others “Wouldn’t it be fun if we…” a lot more. There’s also an element of taking charge of one’s own fun. Being responsible for that facet of self-care and co-creation of one’s own life experience.

    The scent itself lasts for a long while. To me it smells like heavy sticky dark honey with floral hints. Not foodie honey, more earthy than super sweet. Grounded and beautiful.
