HALLOWEEN PERFUMES! Ghosts in Love- BPAL

PERFUME:Ghosts In Love


"Tell me, where do ghosts in love
Find their bridal veils?"

"If you and I were ghosts in love
We'd climb the cliffs of Mystery,
Above the sea of Wails.
I'd trim your gray and streaming hair
With veils of Fantasy
From the tree of Memory.
'Tis there the ghosts that fall in love
Find their bridal veils."

- Vachel Lindsay



COMPANY: BPAL

AVAILABILITY:Original released in Halloween 2011 and has been re-released with the current Halloween update.

OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION:White sandalwood, tobacco flower, lily of the valley, white carnation, and magnolia blossom with tea rose, labdanum, and oudh.

BEFORE I SMELL: Again the pretty poem made me wanting to try this! I come to the conclusion that the 50% of the reasons why I want to try something is the description and the perfume's name.. Especially if it's a piece of literature that I love. I have to work on that.

FROM THE DECANT/BOTTLE: A bunch of different florals: Roses, carnations, lily of the valley and magnolia. I get rose the most and it's pretty!
The rose has a hint of lemon which is rounded by the sweetness and the creaminess of the magnolia.

WET ON SKIN: Now I get the resins but they are light.
They go very well with the flowers.
 It's clean and perfumy. I would say that is a little bit similar to Le renevant or at least they belong to the same family. I like this better because it doesn't have that green aspect or that powdery note.
I also smell the the tobacco flower and it's kinf of similar to the tobacco flower perfume from the Body Shop that they had years back.

DRY DOWN: Fresh roses complimented by the other flowers especially lily of the valley and magnolia.


FINAL THOUGHTS: Not a bottle purchase but a beautiful rose scent indeed.

  1. Oh, this sounds so pretty! And I love that picture you chose! I'm guilty of buying perfumes based on their descriptions too, but I'm glad I do sometimes... Because I would have never bought Manor by Solstice Scents without its awesome description and it's my favorite :)

    1. Thank you Rachel! I totally agree sometimes it's not about the perfume notes but the feeling and the atmosphere.
      Manor it's a masterpiece! Iam curious about Edge of the night from SS too. Have you tried it?
