Scent Name: Black Hellebore Honey

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Rappaccini’s Garden:  Rappaccini’s Apiary

Scent Description and Notes: “Within the vast gardens of Rappaccini’s estate lies a peculiar apiary, populated with bees of questionable tastes. Inspired by the Maenomenon of Pontus, Xenophon’s Retreat of the Ten Thou-sand, tales of St. Olga, and the exploits of the Heptakometes, Dr. Rappaccini slowly adjusted the pheromone emissions of his colonies, thus modifying their behaviors. His bees developed a predilection for unsavory nectars, and Dr. Rappaccini’s experiment came to fruition.

Black Hellebore Honey” – BPAL

Oil Color: Clear as far as I can tell.

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): Sweet, cloying honey is the only thing I can smell in the imp.
  • Wet:  Even sweeter still?  How is that possible?There is a touch of something wicked underneath, but the smell of the honey isn’t making me feel too well.
  • Dry: Honey with a darker tinge too it, reminiscent of dried nettle.

Other Impressions: Powdery is the verdict,
