Scent Name: The Ghastly Garden
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Halloweenie 2012
Scent Description and Notes: “Overgrown oleander, marshy water hemlock, the sugared nectar of carnivorous blooms, putrefying wet greenery, oozing sap, crushed rosary peas, withered climbing roses, and nightshade berries.” -BPAL
Oil Color: A lightly diluted pollen 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, decanted amount, date, and image. The black and white image is of a single rose with the name of the scent to its left and the company name below the image.
- ITI: It’s sweet, somewhat artificial, but mostly floral. It’s a bit harder to tease out scents on first sniff with this one. On second sniff, I get an aquatic note, the nightshade berries, hemlock, and light rosary peas.
- Wet: I get hemlock, nectar, rose, spicy nightshade, and something that reminds me of a light wood. It’s less sharp on my skin than in the bottle.
- Dry: Powdery rich floral. Most of it becomes muddled, but I can still make out the rose and the sweeter aspect of the nectar.
Other Impressions: None.
