Yay, another Alice in Wonderland scent.  However, it does have ginger, so I’m a little apprehensive.

Scent Name:  Imperious Tiger-Lily

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Mad Tea Party: The Garden of Live Flowers

Scent Description and Notes: “`O Tiger-lily,’ said Alice, addressing herself to one that was waving gracefully about in the wind, `I wish you could talk!’

`We can talk,’ said the Tiger-lily: `when there’s anybody worth talking to.”

Alice was so astonished that she could not speak for a minute: it quite seemed to take her breath away. At length, as the Tiger-lily only went on waving about, she spoke again, in a timid voice — almost in a whisper. `And can all the flowers talk?’

`As well as you can,’ said the Tiger-lily. `And a great deal louder.’

Tiger-lily, ginger root, neroli, purple fruits, and frankincense.” -BPAL

Oil Color: A pale golden yellow.

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 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: 

  • In the Imp (ITI):   Sweetly floral and powdery with the tiger-lily.  However, I do smell the ginger root and it isn’t death ginger, it’s more of an Altoids mints ginger.
  • Wet: Hmm, frankincense takes the forefront, which I wouldn’t have expected.  After that, I get  lily, a touch of neroli, and just a dash of ginger.  It’s still rather pleasant, which makes me rather happy.
  • Dry:  It’s become more powdery as it dries, and while the lily is still very present, there is a faint undertone of cat pee when it interacts with my skin.  Boo, this one was going so well, too.

Other Impressions: None.
