Scent Name:  How Doth The Little Crocodile

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Mad Tea Party

Scent Description and Notes: How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!

How cheerfully he seems to grin,
How neatly spreads his claws,
And welcomes little fishes in
With gently smiling jaws!

Chocolate peppermint, mint-soaked vanilla, pistachio, oakmoss, and green cedar.” – BPAL

Oil Color: A light, bright yellowed lace 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 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):  That certainly is chocolate, but a chocolate I like, similar to hot coco with a splash of mint liqueur. It’s foody, but it’s not offensive like other foody scents I’ve sniffed in the past.
  • Wet: Warm vanilla, pungent peppermint, warm chocolate powder, and a touch of cedar to add to the complexity.  It does remind me of an jewel-embellished crocodile mirage, actually.  
  • Dry: It’s just light cocoa, whiffs of vanilla, and just an impression of peppermint. Lovely!
Other Impressions:  “It’s like chocolate, mint, and some kind of flower.” -Tony
