I managed to find a wonderful person who provided me with full imp samples of the coveted Anime Expo limited edition scents. This is a new division, although I have drooled over some of the fashions that use rich burgundy and gold, which is part of Dolly Kei. I’m hoping the scent is just as sumptuous.
Scent Name: Dolly Kei
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Event Exclusive – Bat’s Day at Anime Expo 2012
Scent Description and Notes: DOLLY KEI
Antiqued bourbon vanilla and tobacco-tinged yellow sandalwood with copal and amber incense, frankincense, tonka absolute, and myrrh.” – BPAL
Oil Color: A 14k gold color.
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 character in the purple dress with the black rose in her hair.
- In the Imp (ITI): I get bourbon vanilla and amber with subtle hints of myrrh and frankincense – it’s really pretty.
- Wet: On my skin, the copal and amber are much more prominent, although I’m also getting the tonka. I smell hints of the vanilla bourbon, but it is no longer the dominant note.
- Dry: Now the bourbon vanilla has emerged again. The scent is pleasantly sweet with resinous overtones and woody undertones.
