Scent Name: Golgothan Myrrh

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Single Notes

Scent Description and Notes: GOLGOTHAN MYRRH
I send thee myrrh, not that thou mayest be by it perfumed, but it perfumed by thee.

Myrrh is a sacred plant whose power has been explored for over four thousand years. It is an ingredient in the Kyphi of the ancient Egyptians and in Ketoret, which was used in the used in the First and Second Temples of Jerusalem. Myrrh was also one of the gifts that the Magi were said to have brought to the infant Christ. This tremendously potent and protective plant resonates with the Crone, and is utilized both to explore the Crone’s spheres of death and wisdom, and as a tool to help lead the proverbial child of destiny through darkness to a place of enlightenment.

Myrrh, whose name means Bitter Tears, exists within the auspices of both Saturn and Luna, and represents loss and grief as well as the ability to heal and learn from painful experiences. – BPAL

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

Bottle Design and Artwork:  This is the 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 name of the collection in tall dark maize yellow block font on a black field, which frames the primary image.  The name of the scent  is right centered in tall block font along the bottom of the image, superimposed over the white background and the yellow maize colored alchemical sign of sulfur (which is BPAL’s symbol as well).

Scent:

  • In the Bottle (ITB): Delicious, sultry myrrh with a touch of citrus.
  • Wet: The myrrh on my skin still retains a very slight citrus quality while still being sweetly resinous.  I’m resisting the urge to slather myself in this scent.
  • Dry: It’s still gorgeous as even – sweetly resinous and evocative.
Other Impressions:  “It’s powdery and smells a bit like myrrh.  I wouldn’t say it’s exactly an older lady scent, but I think it would be something someone in her 40s or 50s would wear.” -Tony
