I managed to obtain both an imp and a bottle of this scent.  Leather, juniper, saffron, and myrrh together were just too good to pass up.

Scent Name: Cuelebre

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab –  Dragon*Con 2012 Event Exclusive

Scent Description and Notes: Fond of gold, fattened cattle, and the company of the fae Xana, these indolent, slothful dragons only venture forth from their caves when tempted by food, treasure, or vengeance.

Blood red pomegranate juice, gleaming leather, black myrrh, saffron, Spanish juniper, Apple of Cain, and green cognac. -BPAL

Oil Color: A dark orange with some ruddiness to it.

Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a decant from Absinthetics.  On the back, she has the notes of the scent, the title, and the company acronym, along with her decanting name.  The front features an image of a blue horned dragon with massive wings that help it glide through the moonlight. The bottle image features a green dragon curled around a pile of gold, reminiscent of Smaug, but much less menacing.

Scent:  

  • ITI:  Sweet, sugared pomegranate, strawberry, and a touch of cognac.  It’s super sweet in the bottle, but it reminds me a little of childhood dress up and that fun fruit-flavored lip gloss.
  • Wet: Strawberry, pomegranate  myrrh and a touch of warm cognac.  Even thought this is slightly foody, I enjoy it. 
  • Dry: Pomegranate, strawberry, vanilla, musk, and myrrh.  I like it!

Other Impressions: Egg yolks and whites, artificial strawberries, and old leather-bound library books to Tony’s nose.  It’s smells like meringue with strawberries in it to him.
