Scent Name: Hemlock

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab –  Rappaccini’s Garden

Scent Description and Notes: This infamous herb has a long, complex history: it has been used in spells of death and destruction, was a principal component in traditional witches’ flying ointments, and was the poison used to put the philosopher Socrates to death.

We have created a dark, profound herbal blend to personify and honor this wicked little plant.. -BPAL

Oil Color: A beautiful bright slightly aqua green 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.


  • ITI:  It’s certainly hemlock, but I get a bit of astringent pine, like juniper,  in there as well.
  • Wet: It’s a little more smoky than I would have expected on my skin.  It’s just a faint impression, but enough to surprise me.  It’s still very herbal but now I get lemon rind.  
  • Dry:  After a 16 hour work day. only a faintly soft, slightly powdery scent remains.  It’s significantly different than wet or even dry earlier in the day, but it’s still rather nice. 

Other Impressions: None.
