Scent Name: Paramatman
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Sin and Salvation
Scent Description and Notes: “Like two birds of golden plumage, inseparable companions, the individual self and the immortal Self are perched on the branches of the selfsame tree. The former tastes of the sweet and bitter fruits of the tree; the latter, tasting of neither, calmly observes.
Orange blossom, East Indian sandalwood, and champaca. ” – BPAL
Oil Color: I reminds me of what gold would look like if it could be diluted to the point of translucence.
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 and smoky floral and great wafts of heady sandalwood turns this scent into an intoxicating little number. I nearly swoon when I sniff it.
- Wet: Very pungent champaca flower with bits of orange rind (it’s more of a bitter orange), some greenness, and of course the sultry sandalwood form a very enticing blend. It evokes images of tropical forests, tigers, a lotus blossoms.
- Dry: Faint champaca and a hint of orange, but it’s really close to the skin after 10 hours. I would have imagined that this scent had longer staying power based on its potency when I applied it.
Other Impressions:Citrusy according to Tony.
