Scent Name:  Alcie

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab –  Carolyn Hennesy’s Pandora

Scent Description and Notes: “Sassy. Impetuous. Loyal. Alcestis Artemisia Medusa, with her red hair and brown-green eyes, is prettier than most and is having a much easier time with all the “maiden stuff.” Alcie’s father, a wealthy man, buys all the latest toga clasps, hair irons and ankle bracelets for his daughter, so she’s always rather lovely. However, Alcie is also a distant niece of the great Gorgon Medusa, a creature so hideous that anyone who looked into its eyes would immediately turn to stone. A young hero, Perseus, had cut off Medusa’s head some years earlier, so at least all the relatives didn’t have to worry about Medusa showing up for feast days, but Alcie was still embarrassed by the blot on the family name.

Just a hint of gorgon blood: bright nectarine, honey, sandalwood, green musk, sea buckthorn berry, and oakmoss.” -BPAL

Oil Color:  A corn oil 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.  The side features her decanting name while the front has the company acronym, collection, title of scent, and image.  The image is of a comic-book inspired woman in a 3/4 view running her fingers through her flowing red hair. She’s in a grey-green toga, which matches the background of the image.

Scent: 

  • ITI:  It’s rather light in the bottle.  I get green musk and sea buckthorn berry.
  • Wet: Bright, green and clean.  I get green musk and light nectarines along with buckthorn berry.  I’m really enjoying the clean greenness of the scent. 
  • Dry:  Nectarine zest, green musk, light oakmoss, and buckthorn berry.  I really like the green quality of this scent that stays true from first sniff to the dry down.

Other Impressions: “Orange, lemongrass, and whatever the dominant smell is of the American Eagle perfume.” -Tony
