Scent Name:  Pandy

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab –  Pandora (based on Carolyn Hennesy’s Pandora)

Scent Description and Notes: “Every girl you’d ever want to be or know. Although she doesn’t quite know it…yet. Ever since she had turned thirteen and had officially become a maiden, Pandora Atheneus Andromaeche Helena, only daughter of the titan Prometheus, was bored to tears. Well…not bored exactly…but she couldn’t quite put her finger on what she was feeling. She looked skyward and saw Bellerophon, now a tiny speck, rocketing about on his magnificent winged horse. Gods, how exciting that must be! And there were other heroes, men and women, all over Greece doing wonderful, brave, death-defying things right at that very moment. Her curiosity rose inside her like steam. What would it feel like to have a sword in her hand or fly on the back of a magical animal? How she wished she could have some kind, any kind, of adventure.

Fresh white musk, honeycomb, sweet apricot, elemi, orange blossom, and mischievous pink pepper.  -BPAL

Oil Color:  Colorless.

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 a greyed sea foam image of a brunette girl in the round looking over her shoulder, surrounded my magical essence streaming around her.

Scent:  

  • ITI: It smells like faint bubblegum (pepper and honeycomb combination) with orange blossom.
  • Wet: I get the bubblegum note I tend to smell with pink pepper, along with the subtle sweetness of honeycomb, orange blossom, and a touch of musk.  Feminine and beautiful. 
  • Dry: It dry downs to almost nothing. However, it could be that my nose is so stuffy that I can’t smell it.  Edit:  Okay, I’ve been working ahead due to massive time commitments at work lately.  Thank goodness, as I would have had to leave the review at that.  Three days later and I can smell something!  It smells like honeyed orange blossom with a delicious touch of  musk and pink pepper.  It’s such a pretty scent. 

Other Impressions: Tony says it smells like powder with cherry cough medicine.  Hmm.
