Thalassa, The Galapagos Mermaid Perfume Oil


A massive glass tank is positioned on the stage, decorated with a rough canvas painting of sand and sea. Within the tank, you see a swirl of ivory, coral, and russet. After a few rushed passes, the furiously moving creature slows and makes her way towards the glass. As she approaches, you see that her features are lovely and delicate, and though her pearl-adorned torso is that of a beautiful, slender woman, her bewitching face is crowned by lethal spikes and instead of legs she has a writhing serpentine tail. Upon spotting you, her dorsal spikes flare, and she sneers maliciously. She slaps the face of the tank with her powerful tail, and you hear a crack and groan as the glass fractures under the strain.

Seaweed, kelp, salty ocean spray, bitter almond, night-blooming jasmine, frankincense, and benzoin.

A Pantomime of Deviltry and Debauch in Seven Acts

Presented in an amber apothecary vial.

    This is a really, really nice ocean-y scent with just a little extra depth and complexity, which I think comes through via the frankincense and benzoin. These resiny notes don’t overpower the lighter floral and watery notes, though, since this oil is very well-balanced. I have smelled and tested several of BPAL’s watery scents, and this is absolutely one of the best.

    This really made my day, I grew up near the beach and am now somewhat land-locked so finding scents that evoke the ocean is like finding a gold doubloon. This scent really evokes deep and warm tropical waters but also has an underpinning of danger (that elusive mermaid quality), a siren call. It lasted several hours and still smelled as watery after drying as when initially applied.
