Scent Name: Devil’s Night 2011
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Halloweenie 2011
Scent Description and Notes: Devil’s Eve, Devil’s Night, Gate Night, Trick Night, Mischief Night; whatever your name for it might be, the chaos is still the same. Contrary to popular belief, this festival of pandemonium isn’t unique to Detroit. Falling on October 30th, it is an evening of mayhem and destruction. On the gentler side, it may be celebrated by practical jokes, an egging, Ding-Dong-Ditch, or enthusiastic TP’ing of your most hated neighbor’s trees, and on the more violent side, arson and vandalism.
This is the scent of autumn night, fires in the distance, with a touch of boozy swoon, playful sugar and thuggish musk.” -BPAL
Arborvitae, also known as Thuja, is a member of the cypress family, and while known as cedars, are not true ones. It has a camphor-like quality to its scent.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a decant from ralenth. 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. The image is of an ally, framed by a shrouded skull figure.
- ITI: It smells like sharp booze with a little artificial sweetness from the sugar.
- Wet: Less sharp, although it still smells like pitch in the background of the musky sugar and touches of splashed booze.
- Dry: I get lots of sugar plus a great deal of musk. I’m on the fence with this scent.
Other Impressions: None.
