The goth series is something I’ve been looking for as they only were available at 1 location for a very short time. Once again, I have to thank a generous swapper for  the ability to try this scent.

Scent Name:  DeathRocker

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Event Exclusive – Bat’s Day 2011

Scent Description and Notes: Hairspray, cigarette smoke, hair dye over wisps of olibanum, styrax, and benzoin..” – BPAL

Oil Color: Now this is an interesting oil color!  It is a greenish blue color, which reminds me of a clear pond in a park.

Bottle Design and Artwork:  This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz).  The label wrapped around the bottle is hand-created.  It features the name of the scent, the release date, the line, and the notes.  The name of the scent is in a bubble font that matches the color of the oil.  The artwork on the front features two 90’s death rocker goths who have some amazing mohawks.  This is the image the kindly decanter chose.

The original bottles feature black labels with red and black font that feature chibi gothic characters dressed in all the sub genres of goth.

Scent:

  • In the Imp (ITI):  It’s rather chemically, but pleasantly so.  It does smell like a combination of hair spray and dye with a little bit of resinous undertones from the benzoin and styrax.
  • Wet:  It very much strikes me as  an individual with fresh dye in his or her hair in a medical-type setting.  It smells a little like night and the entrance to a spooky club that has some incense burning in the background.
  • Dry: Lovely benzoin with the slightly sweet and ever so slightly chemically scent of hair spray and dye (Manic Panic).  It’s a scent that makes me nostalgic for my heavily goth clubbing days and something I would wear when dancing all night.
Other Impressions: Tony says it’s interesting, almost candy-like.
