Today marks a significant day for my testing.  I finally had to reach into my second imp box in order to fill the four remaining space in imp box number one.  Mind you, each one holds 81 imps. I’m looking forward to retiring this box and officially placing box number two on the place of honor – my desk.

Scent Name: Centzon Totochtin

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Excolo

Scent Description and Notes: “The Four Hundred divine rabbits of the Aztec pantheon that preside over parties and drunkenness. Bittersweet Mexican cocoa with rum, red wine, and a scent redolent of sacrificial blood.” -BPAL

Oil Color: It reminds be of the light yellow found in some white wines.

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: 

  • ITI:  The notes are thater clear here.  The cocoa is a darker variety infused with rum and the winee is a dark almost merlot.  I normally don’t like foody scents and wine notes are hit and miss, but this does smell promising.
  • Wet:  Milder red wine and cocoa.  It’s sweet and boozy.
  • Dry:  The staying power of this scent is rather minimal.  I applied it last 4 hours ago and I can barely smell slightly boozy chocolate, but I have to concentrate to really smell it.

Other Impressions:It smells spicy and warm to my friend Brad.  He likens it to the jungle after the rain and had a very positive response to it.
