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 charcoal-looking drawing of a disembodied head looking surprised and horrified.


  • ITI:  Teakwood and patchouli with hints of cognac and pepper.  Oh, very nice.
  • Wet: Stronger teakwood and cognac together with a little vetiver now.  I still like this a great deal. 
  • Dry:  Mmm, the wood is balanced – teak infused with patchouli, champaca, and clove.  Wonderful. 

Other Impressions:  I’m sad that I didn’t get a bottle of this.
