Scent Name:  Dragon Moon 2008

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab –  A Little Lunacy 4/18/08-4/22/08

Scent Description and Notes: In some cultures, the Dragon is benevolent, bestowing blessings and granting wishes. In others, the Dragon is an icon of destruction and harbinger of catastrophe. In all its incarnations, both baneful and benign, the Dragon is a symbol of strength, authority, and the raw power of nature. Our Dragon Moon represents the forces of rebirth and the vigor that springtime brings: dragon’s blood resin, galbanum, blue sage, lavender, peppermint, sweetgrass, frankincense, moonglow magnolia, bergamot, and green cedar. – BPAL

Oil Color: – (Cannot tell in brown apothecary bottles)

Bottle Design and Artwork:  This is a standard 5ml brown apothecary bottle.  The label extends just under halfway around the bottom.  The label features the name of the collection and date in iron-colored font along the top, while the name of the scent is in a goldenrod color along the bottom of the label, just over the name of the company.  The label art is of a winged dragon outlined in green wrapping itself around the BPAL symbol.


  • In the Bottle (ITB):  It’s a bit green from the sweetgrass, sage, and a touch of peppermint, but cedar and peppermint do seem to appear after a few seconds.
  • Wet: It’s wet, strongly resinous with the dragon’s blood muddled with the sage, lavender, and peppermint.  It reminds me of baby oil a little, but it’s also a scent I wouldn’t mind using for relaxation.
  • Dry:  Once dried, the sage and peppermint mellow down to the extent that the frankincense, bergamot, and magnolia can shine.  I like this one!
Other Impressions:  None.
