Scent Name: Silenti
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Vampires Don’t Sleep Alone
Scent Description and Notes: “The Silenti reject human society completely, and are, quite literally, the living dead. Either due to trauma, sociopathic psychological conditions they possessed while human, or through a desire to embrace this peculiar aesthetic, they adopt many of the stereotypes and trappings of the vampire-as-undead. Some act as monstrous killers, akin to the murderous ways of Interfectors, while others are more peaceable, but no less strange. Most of these vampires choose to live in crypts, haunting graveyards like proverbial ghouls. Many vampire death cults have sprung from the philosophies and writings of Silenti, including the House of Azrael, whose members venerate death itself as the supreme deity and oblivion as heaven.
Grave beauty: Spanish moss, lilac, wisteria, myrrh, and olibanum.” -BPAL
Oil Color: A beautiful bronzed amber 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 a Nosferatu type vampire in a black cape in a threatening stance against a beige and brown mottled background.
- ITI: Rich olibanum, myrrh, and wisteria. I thought the wisteria would be more abrasive, but the blend of notes is rather pretty.
- Wet: The olibanum is much softer on my skin, leaving the myrrh and wisteria to flourish together.
- Dry: It’s soft and sleepy from the myrrh and Spanish moss, while also lending a contemplative note from the wisteria. It’s a lovely scent, actually.
Other Impressions: None.
