    Less patchouli and seaside, more retirement home and Irish spring for me.

    I’m a huge fan of BPAL and have well over a dozen of their scents. The grandma soap smell died down a bit with dry down, but not much. I could smell more musk and gunpowder after ten minutes, but my family still complained of the broadcast of soap. Funky batch, maybe?

    This is one of my first full bottles, and my first review. I *love* this scent. I bought a sample after reading the description and was initially put off by the smell coming straight from the imp. My first impression is almost a cloying coffee, like the “International Coffee” you can buy in a tin. Ugh. BUT after applying to my skin, this thing BLOSSOMS into its really lovely salty, filthy, sweet-but-not-too-sweet personality. I don’t smell all of the notes in the description, and I’m not even quite sure what I *do* smell, but that kind of makes it better? There’s definitely the salt and rum, but I’m not sure of the rest. Maybe it’s the sarsaparilla that produces the cloying sweetness I get from the bottle that eventually mellows out so nicely. Regardless, this one snuck up on me and I only realized I needed it after the imp was depleted.

    Mary Read is one of my favorite women in history, so needless to say I was ecstatic to see a perfume inspired by her. It is everything I could have hoped for, delicate but musty and pleasant. I couldn’t be happier with it and will definitely be ordering it again and again so long as it’s on the site.

    The patchouli and “ocean mist” are very strong when this one is wet. As it dries it does get a little warm, due to the musk no doubt. I enjoy it, but I’m not sure it’s really for me. Think sea side, but a little powdery.

    Mary Read is my absolute favourite perfume since I received my first bottle yesterday (28/1/14)I am delighted with it. I chose this perfume because I thought it sounded romantic – I just hope the man of my dreams finds it desirable and extremely sexy, BPAL perfume oils sty on your skin all day and a huge treat to wear. I liken them to extensions of my clothing – part of my wardrobe and the whole adventure of getting dressed. Wearing perfume and clothing should be an adventure and not just something with which to cover yourself.
