Scent Name: Machu Picchu

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Wanderlust

Scent Description and Notes: Sweet tropical fruits burst through deep, wet rainforest boughs, enormous steamy blossoms, over thin mountaintop breezes, mingled with the soft, rich golden scent of Peruvian amber. – BPAL

Oil Color: A thin saffron color.

Bottle Design and Artwork:  This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz).  The label wrapped around the bottle features an Art-Deco inspired clockwork structure with the the name of the company at the bottle of the image. On the other side, the title of the scent written in large, clear black font outlined with red on the front.

Scent:

  • In the Imp (ITI):  Rich and ripe tropical fruit followed by heady florals and something that’s just a little soapy and odd.
  • Wet:  It smells a little like rubberized tar for just a couple seconds, but then I get tropical fruit and an aquatic tone to the mountain breeze.
  • Dry: It’s not very long lasting.  I tested four scents about 5 hours ago and this one I can’t pick up at all.  Retested freshly dried, the fruits and florals have overcome all the astringency and chemically qualities of the other note, leaving a soft powderiness I can attribute to the amber.
Other Impressions: “I can’t really peg that at all.  It smells citrusy, but I can’t identify it.”  -Tony
