    I received this as a frimp and my stars I love it! on the first day of wearing it I had a headache and I thought it was the perfume, but still I kept coming back to it, and now I’m certainly ordering a full bottle for daily wear. to me it smells like cotton candy with a dark slant and fruity notes, really wonderful, I can’t stop smelling it x

    This was the first full-size I ordered from BPAL and I love it. It’s very warm, and verges on cloying spicy-sweet in a way that makes me want roll around in it. Very warm and comforting. The sweet pea is strongest at the start, vanilla becomes more noticeable after an hour or so, and it tends to mellow out into a sweet sandalwood, like really great incense.

    This scent is absolutely lovely. It’s warm with just a hint of floral background.

    I wasn’t sure I would like this, but I was surprised. I can’t wear floral scents however the floral of this is soft and background. To me it smells like a dusty incense, hauntingly feminine.

    It resolves to sandalwood like a chordal progression played by forest nymphs. That’s all.

    Mouse’s Long and Sad Tale has long been one of my favorite General catalogue BPAL fragrances. It is my go-to when I want something comforting and snuggly. I also wear it as a bedtime fragrance some nights, I find it that wonderful and soothing. On my skin, the sweet vanilla and fragrant sweet pea are grounded by the warmth of the sandalwood and amber. Truly a staple in my collection.

    Just as a disclaimer, I am new to the world of wearing perfumes.

    Mouse’s Tale started off pretty and sweet, and a bit green, almost like herbs or summer grass. Very shortly thereafter, that all gave way to sandalwood, overwhelming sandalwood. While I am a fan of sandalwood, this was a bit too much. I’ll have to see if maybe differing the amount/placement helps or perhaps mixing with another scent.

    As a postscript, my friend has both an imp and a full size of Mouse’s Tale, so obviously, the perfume works differently with her body chemistry.
