According to the Poll, Veil it is!

Scent Name:  Veil

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Bewitching Brews

Scent Description and Notes: “A quiet scent, soft, calm and enigmatic. A perfume of mystery, of whispers, and of secrets behind secrets. White sandalwood, lilac, gardenia, violet, orris, lavender and ylang ylang. -BPAL

Oil Color: A diluted honey 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 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):  The first notes out are gardenia and violet, blended beautifully in harmony.  It reminds me of walking through a veil.  After I inhale a little longer, can pick up the orris, which adds some nice complexity to the sweetness and innocence of the flowers.
  • Wet: Ah, there is the lavender, although it’s a bit overpowering for the gardenia and violet upon initial application.  The lavender yields a bit more greenness to the scent base.
  • Dry: The lavender has calmed down, back to the original in the imp scent combination, although there are slight hints of lavender.  I would love to make this into a room spray or a hair gloss.  This will go on the “to buy” list.

Other Impressions: It smells like roses and bubblegum to Tony.  He muses on this scent for a few minutes after I sit down.  He finally realizes in smells like Lotte’s violet gum.
