It’s a bit bewildering to think that 95% of these 500 posts so far have just been imps, or samples, of scents. I have about 6 imps left, then I have two Michael’s hidden book keepers of bottles before I move on to a drawer filled with designer perfume. Yikes!
Scent Name: I Loved You First: But Afterwards Your Love
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Lupercalia 2013 (1/24/13–4/1/13)
Scent Description and Notes: “A gentle musk suffused with red roses, neroli, Moroccan jasmine, tuberose, white tobacco, and bourbon vanilla.” -BPAL
Oil Color: A white wine 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 title of the scent, and the collection. The front features decanting information along with a picture of an “I love you” not with a hand-drawn heart in a little box off to the right of the picture.
- ITI: It a white scent, reminding me of crisp linens. I can pick up the neroli, jasmine, and tuberose well. The other notes haven’t made themselves apparent.
- Wet: It’s a bit more floral on my skin – tuberose, rose, jasmine, and neroli with a hint of white tobacco.
- Dry: Wow, it morphs. It’s softer and sweeter once dried. The white tobacco, musk, neroli, jasmine, and tuberose, while distinct, form a scent that is feminine, clean, and sophisticated.
Other Impressions: “It’s nice. It smells like some kind of flower, but I don’t know what.” -Tony
