This is a scent that I’ve been interested in purely because of the plum.

Scent Name: Bathsheba

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Ars Amatoria

Scent Description and Notes: “The Seventh Daughter, Daughter of the Oath. She was King David’s lover, and the mother of King Solomon. Her scent is breathtakingly lovely, exotic and powerfully sensual in its innocence: carnation, sensual plum, and Arabian musk.” – BPAL.org

Oil Color: A very faint yellow, almost like hand-made butter.

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): Oh, what a beautifully feminine scent.  It’s the sweet innocence of freshly blooming carnation with the juicy and sensuality of plum and musk.  I do hope the scent translates well on my skin.
  • Wet: Ripe plum with the sweet and spicy floral of carnation provide  a sweetly sensual base for the musk.
  • Dry:  It’s gone slightly soapy, but the plum and the carnation are still fairly discernible.  I liked it much better wet, although it’s still a nice, feminine floral.
Other Impressions: Tony thinks it smells to lady-y, too floral.  I agree with him here.
