Scent Name:  Okayaki

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab –  Lupercalia 2010: Novel Ideas for Secret Amusements III: 1/19/10-4/30/10

Scent Description and Notes: “Olive blossom, cardamom pod, amber, morning star lily, bergamot, and a well-aimed snowball.” -BPAL

Oil Color: A very faint champagne.

Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a decant from ralenth, who tries to match the bottle art to the art she provides on the imp.  On the back, she has the notes of the scent in large, cursive font.  On the side, she has her decanting name, while the front features the name of the collection and the name of the scent framing the image associated with the scent. The image is a shunga print of a woman about to through a snowball at a preoccupied couple.

Scent: 

  • ITI:  I get cardamom, lily, and olive blossom (although it smells similar to cherry blossom from Pink Mood).
  • Wet: Olive blossom, some bergamot, amber (although a little powdery), and a orangish sweetness, like orange blossom as well.  It’s rather pretty. 
  • Dry:  Olive blossom (very clear now), with hints of vanilla and a little  bergamot. 

Other Impressions:  This reminds me so much of Lush’s Olive Branch in perfume form.  Tony wasn’t sure what it is, but he did offer powder and chocolate.
