Eep! I’m worried about that ginger on my skin, but I do love balsam, sarsaparilla, and nutmeg, so perhaps it will all balance out.
Scent Name: Gnome
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – RPG
Scent Description and Notes: “An explosive blend of effervescent golden ginger and black peppercorn with sarsaparilla, gurjum balsam, nutmeg, gear lubricant, and smoke.“ -BPAL
Oil Color: A yellow tinted, nearly colorless oil
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 the the name of the company at the right-hand side of the label. The other side is a bit different since this is an imp specifically from a special collection. It features the name of the series in an interesting, pointed font, with the name of the scent in larger, bolded font outlined in red.
- In the Imp (ITI): I get sharp ginger, smoke, and sarsaparilla with something that is a little citrus-like.
- Wet: Wet and spicy, like ginger in a rainforest. There’s some effervescent qualities to this scent. The sarsaparilla and ginger to transform to a quality ginger beer amalgamation.
- Dry: Powdered ginger with peppercorn, light sarsaparilla, and a touch of smoke. It’s a bit darker than I had anticipated it would dry down to.
Other Impressions: “It smells like dish soap…like Dawn, the antibacterial dish soap. Sorry.” -Tony
