Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Sin and Salvation

Oil Color: A slightly bronzed honey.
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.
- In the Imp (ITI): It’s not an overpowering Lily of the Valley that meets my nose upon first sniff, which is such a positive. After second sniff, I can tease out very light rose and just a touch of frankincense. I get the impression of thoughtfulness and purity.
- Wet: It’s still delightful with the frankincense and lily. It’s heady and but pure, just the way I like it. As it begins to settle down, the rose peaks out. Lovely!
- Dry: The frankincense is a bit stronger a bit stronger when dry, leaving just the faintest hint of lily. This is still something of which I would consider getting a larger bottle.
Other Impressions: Flowery and bubble-y according to Tony.
