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.

NAVA Bastet’s Spring Ice Cream Review

Every spring, Nocturne Alchemy (NAVA) release a plenitude of colourful, bright perfumes that embody the cheerfulness of springtime. One of the most popular collections seems to be the Bastet’s Spring Ice Cream, so I imagine that its resurgence is good news for plenty of NAVA fans.

I’m still a NAVA newbie and therefore a lot of scents are completely unknown to me. That’s why I’ve opted for decants to test them out. Please keep in mind that these were purchased in 2018 and they were aged for half a year before I went on to review them. As always, YMMV! These perfumes are not available all year long, so do keep checking the NAVA website for updates.

Honey oudh and bourbon vanilla.

NAVA Crystalline

You might have come across my review of NAVA Crystalline in this post where I compared it to two other NAVA vanillas – Kobalt and Spooktacular. My tiny sample has evolved into a full-sized bottle, so I felt Crystalline deserved its own place on my blog.

You can buy Crystalline (and other Studio Limited Originals) on the Nocturne Alchemy website for $29 (5 ml).

Review: Crystalline by NAVA

A unique and very special Egyptian vanilla resin perfume. Crystalline – for the signature vanilla scent it creates, one solid scent of an uplifting vanilla from the stigma of a vanilla orchid especially for this perfume.
