    I got this as a frimp and I actually used it only a few times in the last couple years but I do plan on buying the full size. The sweet pea is very dominant on me and it is so absolutely lovely! I can detect the vanilla too. Most BPAL scents work well with my body chemistry and usually bring out the best and most favorite notes, and this one definitely does this. It’s such a sweet, airy, yet not foody smell. I adore it, and my husband commented that it smells really good too.

    I really love how this company tells stories with a nice blend of oils. This scent is really dopey, & sleepy to me. Makes me think of having sedative teas & sweet white icing cakes with friends, followed by long dope nap. Cakey, tea-like, musky, & dreamy.

    At first sniff, I thought the sweet pea would be too floral for me, but as it turns out it’s just right. This scent has a light sweetness mellowed by the sandalwood. It smells very similar to O to me, which is another of my favorites. If it had more staying power I would buy a whole bottle in a heartbeat.

    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 is all vanilla and amber right out of the gate. I found the sweet pea to be barely detectable to my nose, and really only in the vial. I have trouble placing this scent; I want to say it has a cotton candy-like sweetness, but it’s not a gourmand, and the sandalwood gives it just a hint of warmth and spice that’s very soothing.

    I like sweet amber scents a lot, but not so much on me. While I would love this scent in, say, a candle, it’s a little too in-your-face for me to wear daily. Expertly blended, though!

  6. Aimee

    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.

  7. Erin

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

  8. Cheryl

    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.

  9. Magarita

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

  10. Samantha

    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.

  11. Hayley

    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.
