Scent Name: The Phantom Wooer

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Ars Moriendi

Scent Description and Notes: A ghost, that loved a lady fair,
Ever in the starry air
Of midnight at her pillow stood;
And, with a sweetness skies above
The luring words of human love,
Her soul the phantom wooed.
Sweet and sweet is their poisoned note,
The little snakes’ of silver throat,
In mossy skulls that nest and lie,
Ever singing “die, oh! die.”

Young soul, put off your flesh, and come
With me into the quiet tomb,
Our bed is lovely, dark, and sweet;
The earth will swing us, as she goes,
Beneath our coverlid of snows,
And the warm leaden sheet.

Dear and dear is their poisoned note,
The little snakes’ of silver throat,
In mossy skulls that nest and lie,
Ever singing “die, oh! die.”

A lifeless love song: stargazer lily, bone dust, tomb mosses, buttonweed, moonflower, and honey myrtle. ” – BPAL

Oil Color: Very clear.

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.

Scent:

  • In the Imp (ITI): Stargazer lily jumps right out from the bottle and assaults my nose; however, the moss and buttonweed soothe me with their lush greenness.
  • Wet: Mmm, wet and lush greenness (thank you moss and buttonweed for becoming the star players).  This reminds me a little of Velvet Cthluhu and Lush’s Jungle together.  As it’s drying, the flowers’ notes come out to play, but I wish they’d stay in the background.
  • Dry:IT gets very faint, very quickly.  There is still a bit of greenness left from the moss and myrtle, but I don’t smell any flowers.  It’s nice, I just wish it had more staying power on my skin.
Other Impressions: None
