Scent Name: The Death Horse

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Marchen

Scent Description and Notes: Lily of the Valley and opopponax. – 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 company along with the phrase “hand blended perfume oil” framing the BPAL symbol along the bottom.  The name of the scent takes up the largest portion of the label in tall block fond.  All of this is set against a parchment colored background and framed by an ornate iron-work border.


  • In the Bottle (ITB): It’s resinous but strongly green and herbal with a faint impression of floral behind everything.
  • Wet:The opopponax is rather smoky and it significantly impacts the lily of the valley, taking it from a pure floral to something dark and foreboding.
  • Dry: Smoky opopponax that skews tobacco and now the lily of the valley is warping to a jasmine-like smell.  Odd.
Other Impressions: “It smells pipe tobacco and corn flakes.” -Tony
