Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Marchen: The Elfin Hill

Scent Description and Notes: “A beer flavored with marsh arrow grass, yew berries, purple foxglove, and giant hogweed.” – BPAL

Oil Color: A hoppy light pilsner color.

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):  I smell hop grassiness with hints of berries. There is a nice warmness to the scent as it reminds me of a day running through sun-rippened grains in the early summer/late spring.
  • Wet:  The berry combined with the hogweed and foxglove goes slightly chemically at first, but the marsh grass and the beer even it out within seconds of application.
  • Dry:  The berries and hogweed dry down to a chemically scent again.  There is a little note of beer, but it is barely discernible.
Other Impressions: Husband smells nag champa, citrus, and soap.  This is a pass for me.  I was hoping for the warmth of the beer to come through, but it just isn’t working as something I’d reach for again.
