Scent Description and Notes: “Indian sandalwood and cedar, and the dry incense smoke of olibanum, gum mastic, patchouli and myrrh.” -BPAL
Oil Color: A yellow with just a touch of copper.
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): Oooh, woody and resinous. This shall be good. I can pick out the earthy patchouli, the sandalwood, and the olibanum, flanked on all sides by older cedar.
- Wet: Delicious resins burning in a wooden pagoda. Myrrh now is melding well with the sandalwood, incense, and the olibanum, while the cedar hangs on the periphery, enclosing everything in a lovely, well-rounded scent. Okay, I’m sad this was just discontinued.
- Dry: It’s beautifully warm in its incense-based qualities. Sandalwood and myrrh harmonize with the patchouli and olibanum perfectly. The cedar isn’t evident anymore, but I’m okay with that. I wish I had a bottle!
Other Impressions: It smells a little like Old Spice to my husband.
