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.

Scent: 

  • 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.
