Default Smallest leaf Basil

For quite a few years I grew the Windowbox Basil from Renee Shepherd. I was happy. Then I got one from Ferris Seed (I think it is) and I was happier (I thought) because it had such a delightful globe shape to the plant. I got 2 varieties from Seeds from Italy/whatever--the verde a piccole foglie and the compatto. The compatto didn't seem all that compatto. Now I'm confused. I don't know what I grew out this year, I thought it was the Ferris, but I don't like it and it's certainly not globe-shaped. Also the leaves are too big and tough.

Which is the variety with the smallest most tender little leaves? They should be the size of mouse ears. Has anyone tried the Pistou Basil?
