This one had a few notes that I like very much.  I hope it works on me.

Scent Name:  Ghosts in Love

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab –  Halloweenie 2011 (9/08/2011 – 11/13/2011)

Scent Description and Notes: GHOSTS IN LOVE
“Tell me, where do ghosts in love
Find their bridal veils?”

“If you and I were ghosts in love
We’d climb the cliffs of Mystery,
Above the sea of Wails.
I’d trim your gray and streaming hair
With veils of Fantasy
From the tree of Memory.
‘Tis there the ghosts that fall in love
Find their bridal veils.”

– Vachel Lindsay

White sandalwood, tobacco flower, lily of the valley, white carnation, and magnolia blossom with tea rose, labdanum, and oudh.” -BPAL

Oil Color:Fired orange-y red.  It’s a gorgeous oil color!

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, which is of a male and female ghost with at winds framing a heart between them.

Scent:  

  • ITI:  It’s floral and green with a little juiciness.  I get tobacco flower, tea rose, magnolia, oudh, and carnation.  It is a clean scent, especially along the lines of Linen.
  • Wet:  Juicy, floral, and slightly soapy.  Tea rose, carnation, magnolia, lilt, and subtle hints of sandalwood.  Very nice. 
  • Dry:  Carnation, magnolia, with heavy whiffs of tea rose.  The incense aspects of it has died down considerably.  

Other Impressions:  This is a scent worth keeping.  It reminds of of a combination of The Body Shop’s Dewberry and Estee Lauder’s Linen.
