I managed to find a wonderful person who provided me with full imp samples of the coveted Anime Expo limited edition scents. I’m so thrilled to be testing them, but I do hope that I can be happy with just testers as the bottles are a little outside my budget.
Scent Name: Hime Gyaru
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Event Exclusive – Bat’s Day at Anime Expo 2012
Scent Description and Notes: Fit for a princess: pink musk, spun sugar, white rose, pink gardenia, black currant, and violet leaf.” – BPAL
Oil Color: Colorlessly clear
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). The label wrapped around the bottle is hand-created. It is simply a hand written half label taped around the bottle. The artwork associated with this scent is the blond anime girl in the pink dress, bespattered with bows.
- In the Imp (ITI): Pink sugar, strong but girly musk, violet, sugar and gardenia. It’ s grily but slightly sophisticated as well. Parks of the “pink” quality remind me of Red, the Fraggle scent, to a certain extent.
- Wet: Yum! Violets, sugar, pink musk, currant, and light gardenia combine to make such a lovely floral scent. It reminds me of chiffon and lace.
- Dry:As it dries, the musk and sugar come out, but not to the point of being overly sweet or masking the softly feminine floral of the violets and lilacs.
