Scent Name: Imp
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Mad Tea Party
Scent Description and Notes: “‘Herald, read the accusation!’ said the King.
On this the White Rabbit blew three blasts on the trumpet, and then unrolled the parchment scroll, and read as follows:–
‘The Queen of Hearts, she made some tarts,
All on a summer day:
The Knave of Hearts, he stole those tarts,
And took them quite away!’
Crushed roses and blackcurrant tarts.“ – BPAL
Oil Color: A Honeyed Pilsner 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 phoenix 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.
- In the Imp (ITI): Juicy blackberries and red, thick roses. There is a distinct warm pastry quality to this as well.
- Wet: Now, it’s candied blackberries in a vanilla-infused tart (heavy on the cream) with just a hint of roses, as if in a vase in the middle of a table.
- Dry: I get very little rose once dried. The scent smells like fresh pie straight from the oven, but the kind of pie you can tell you’ll be working off for weeks. There is a hint of berry, but it is very much cooked currants.
