Scent Name: Blood Coutness
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Diabolus
Scent Description and Notes: “Elizabeth Báthory, also called Erzsébet Báthory in Hungarian and Alžbeta Bátoriová-Nádašdy in Slovak, was the Bloody Lady of Hungary. In order to preserve her youth and loveliness, the brutal and incomparably savage countess captured, tortured and slaughtered innumerable young women and bathed in their blood as part of her beauty regimen. Ah, vanity.
Corrupted black plum, smoky opium and crumbling dead roses covered by a deceptive veil of Hungarian lilac, white gardenia and wild berry.“ – BPAL
Oil Color: Too little to tell.
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 phoenix with the the name of the company next to the phoenix. On the other side, the title of the scent written in large, clear black font outlined with red on the front.
- In the Imp (ITI): Rose, opium, berries, lilac, and plum. It’s yummy while still being complex enough to be worn by an adult.
- Wet: Gardenia, crushed roses, plum, and artificial berries. It’s now bad, actually.
- Dry: Mmm, now it smells like berried fall potpourri The plum is evident while the berries smell dried rather than wet and artificial (thank you, BPAL!). The rose and opium meld wonderfully together to form a complicated and womanly scent that I would love to wear again.
