Scent Name:  The Black Apple of Saturn

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab –  Halloweenie:  Silver Apples of the Moon Golden Apples of the Sun (09/08/11-11/13/11)

Scent Description and Notes: “Dried Arkansas black apple, opoponax, cypress, myrrh, tobacco absolute, quince, black musk, and galbanum.” -BPAL

Oil Color:  A dark brandy color.

Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a decant from ralenth.  On the back, she has the notes of the scent in large, bold font. The side displays her decanting name.  The front has the name of the scent, the company acronym, and the collection framing a shiny black apple.

Scent: 

  • ITI: I smell black apple, some musk, and quince.  It’s rather sweet, actually.
  • Wet: Very sweet, almost candied apples, with tones of quince and dark musk.  I’m not smelling the other notes, but it might because I have a cold. 
  • Dry:  Ah, now I get the myrrh and the opoponax, all of much smell with the apple, concealing the sweetness of earlier significantly. And now the tobacco absolute comes in after come concentration.  Again, this is another scent I prefer dry. 

Other Impressions: “Chinese incense.” -Tony
