BPAL Mouse’s Long and Sad Tale

While loud fragrances seem to get the most attention, it’s also worth turning to quieter perfumes. Like finding haven in a storm. BPAL’s Mouse’s Long and Sad Tale is like that – unassuming, mousey, but you might just end up loving it if you get to know it better.

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab released the Entertaining the Heian Court Maiden perfume oil in their 2017 Lupercalia: Novel Ideas for Secret Amusements limited-edition collection.

The Battle of the BPAL Zoryas: Zorya Utrennyaya, Zorya Vechernyaya and Zorya Polunochnaya

Today, I’m back to reviewing some perfumes! It’s time to review some – now slightly old already – offerings from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – the three Zoryas from the American Gods Collection. I won’t get into much detail about the collection because I already mentioned it in my review of Eostre of the Dawn, so let’s plunge straight into the battle!

The Battle of the BPAL Zoryas

Zorya Utrennyaya, Zorya Vechernyaya and Zorya Polunochnaya are three sisters – goddesses from Slavic mythology, as described in Neil Gaiman’s book American Gods. Curiously, only the first two appear in Slavic myths, whereas Zorya Polunochnaya was supposedly created by Gaiman for his novel.

Zorya Utrennyaya represents the Morning Star, Zorya Vechernyaya is the Evening Star and Zorya Polunochnaya is the Midnight Star, so you can guess that each Zorya has her own character and a perfume corresponding to it.

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab: Eostre of the Dawn

In American Gods (Neil Gaiman, 2001), Eostre appears as the Germanic goddess of the dawn. After the show American Gods aired in April 2017, Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab released a collection of perfumes inspired by Gaiman’s novel. One of these perfumes is called Eostre of the Dawn.

“Old English Ēostre continues into modern English as Easter and derives from Proto-Germanic *Austrǭ, itself a descendant of the Proto-Indo-European root *h₂ews-, meaning ‘to shine’ (modern English east also derives from this root).” –Wikipedia

Find Eostre of the Dawn on the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab website; $26.

The Description

Jasmine and honeysuckle, sweet milk and female skin.
