I hadn’t even heard of this scent before from Black Phoenix Trading Post, subsidiary of BPAL. However, the notes look promising.
Scent Name: Boneshaking Antique Velocipede
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Trading Post – The ‘aught nine Naughty or Nice Inquisition: Nice
Scent Description and Notes: “BONESHAKING ANTIQUE VELOCIPEDE
A clacking, rickety concoction comprised of cucumber, purple sage, tonka bean, black coconut, redwood, and teak.” -BPAL
Oil Color: A light white wine color.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a decant, although with no decanter information. It has the notes o n back and the name and collection on front of a taped label.
- ITI: Wow, it’s a very cool scent. I get coconut and cucumber – nummy.
- Wet: Hmm, it’s sweet and slightly green from the cucumber. The tonka and teak are a neat combination with the coconut, which emerges stronger as it dries.
- Dry: It’s muskily sweet – coconut tonka, and teak with just a hint of cucumber. Sadly, the sage never shows, but it’s still a wearable foody scent with a bit of intrigue to it.
Other Impressions: Tony claims that it smells like suntan lotion and celery, although really faintly.
