Scent Name:  Miss Ida

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab –  Event Exclusive Oil:  The Gentleman’s Directory: New York City in 1870

Scent Description and Notes: “Miss Ida Thompson keeps a first class house at No. 126 E. Twelfth street. This elegant parlor house is furnished in the most elaborate and magnificent style. The landlady and lively young ladies are a very pleasant set, full of fun, love, and fond of amusement. The carpets, mirrors, furniture, and paintings are of the latest and most costly designs. This is a truly splendid establishment of the very first class.

French vanilla, white gardenia, Moroccan jasmine, and lemon verbena.” -BPAL

Oil Color:  Nearly colorless with a faint yellow tint.

Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a decant from Absinthetics.  On the back, she has the notes of the scent, the title of the scent in orange, the company acronym in bold, and her decanting information. The front has a pencil sketch of a woman in 3/4 profile with her hair in coiffed in a 1800’s style gathered on top with two thick ringlets cascading down on either side of her neck.  She wears a very low-cut dress while a simple necklace adorns her neck.


  • ITI:  Oh, that’s pretty.  I can pick out the French vanilla and the white gardenia.
  • Wet: The florals are more prominent on my skin – jasmine, gardenia, French vanilla, and just a hint of verbena. 
  • Dry:  Rich vanilla, sweet gardenia, and thick jasmine – it’s floral but so wonderfully appealing and feminine. 

Other Impressions: “Violet and some other stuff.  It’s pleasant.  Violet and cocoa butter, is it?” -Tony
