I have a number of these as extra, but I learned that it has been discontinued, thus no scent story before the notes.
Scent Name: Zorya
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Excolo
Scent Description and Notes: “Spices of the Orient mingle with crystalline musk, midnight flowers and cereus, jasmine, primrose and vesper iris.” – BPAL
Oil Color: Very faint yellow, like diluted lemonade.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). The label wrapped around the bottle features an Art-Deco inspired Phoenix with the the name of the company at the bottle of the image. On the other side, the title of the scent written in large, clear black font outlined with red on the front.
- In the Imp (ITI): Strong jasmine and iris -it’s a clean but strong floral scent. There is just the faintest hint of musk.
- Wet: Strong jasmine still dominates with other notes, but the iris is close on that note’s tale. Primrose shyly makes an appearance. It does have a certain night-quality to the feel of the scent, which is the combination of cool floral and perhaps the cereus (night-blooming cactus). It reminds me a blittle bit of walking past the night-blooming jasmine in Berkeley on may way home in the dark of winter. While it smells good, it also reminds me a bit of a certain Glade air freshener.
- Dry: When dry, the jasmine is still rather strong. I can faintly smell iris and midnight flowers, but it’s a very dark floral scent, and not in the typical exotic way.
