La Belle au Bois Dormant-BPAL






PERFUME: La Belle au Bois Dormant

COMPANY: Bpal

AVAILABILITY: Permanent \ Ars Amatoria

OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: The Sleeping Beauty. A gentle, lovely scent, slightly soporific, but beautiful in its quiet repose. Plumeria and white pear, Damascus rose, tuberose, magnolia and evening dew.

BEFORE I SMELL: You know I love my white florals! The tuberose and magnolia sound so promising! What is more, I love fairytales. Maidens and castles and dragons… Not that I read them but I like them as an inspiration.

FROM THE DECANT/BOTTLE:  Magnolia and sweet aromatic pear.  In my opinion, the evening dew must be a moss note but I am not sure.

WET ON SKIN: Plumeria, Pear and moss. The moss\evening dew\ green note give to this perfume an old world vibe.

DRY DOWN: Powdery roses and fruity magnolia.
In general: A Clean floral with an aquatic aspect.

FINAL THOUGHTS: This definitely smells how I could imagined the sleeping beauty must smelt. The moss from the walls of her castle and the flowers that cover her bed all covered in the evening dew…

    1. This is not limited edition! Yeah! It's under the Ars Amatoria category and you can order a sample too!

    2. I looked through the bpal website today, and I was so overwhelmed because there's so many scents. I wouldn't even know where to start. I am so indecisive, and it's worse when it comes to perfume because I like a lot of different scents >.<

    3. I have this problem too! I like a lot of different scent and I don't really have "death" notes except from some fruits.

      I haven't tried the majority of their catalog and is overwhelming for me too. Maybe, this is why I tend to buy scents from their limited edition page. They tend to include two samples for any bottle you buy by the way!
