I’m excited about the prospect of this scent. Although there is lilac in it, I hope that the teak and rose are the strong notes here.
Scent Name: Ouja
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Bewitching Brews
Scent Description and Notes: “Lush parlor rooms draped in thick velvets and gilded in gold, unearthly whispering in the distance, fleeting flashes of wraithlike figures rushing just outside your vision, the chill of a phantom presence brushing by your cheek, the inscrutable knowledge that disembodied eyes are peering at you from darkened cornersâ€¦ this is the essence of Victorian-era spiritualism: rosewood, oak and teak notes with wispy blue lilac, tea rose, dried white rose and ethereal osmanthus.” -BPAL
Oil Color: A light marigold 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): Pungent rose at the start, followed by osmanthus and old wood paneling (I think that’s the oak) and just a touch of ozone. I get the image of green velvet tasseled drapes, wood-paneled walls, and well-worn Victorian floral upholstered furniture.
- Wet: Rose, osmanthus, lilac, and just a dash of wood. I think my skin may amp rose.
- Dry: Tea rose and lush, full rose with a dash of osmanthus remain after several hours and e long and brisk walk.
Other Impressions: Way too powdery according to my husband. I still like it though.
