Vetiver, patchouli, white pepper, and grapefruit.“ – BPAL

Bottle Design and Artwork: This is the brown 5ml apothecary bottle. The label extends just under halfway around the bottom. The label features the name of the company along with the collection in white-ish yellow framing the image. Along the bottom of the label, just above the company name, is the name of the scent itself in black outlined white block font. The image is set against brownish flames and features a skull with glowing red eyes that has been impaled by a pike.
- ITB: Light grapefruit, very faint vetiver, and a hint of something dry, which might be the white pepper.
- Wet: On my skin, the grapefruit smells more closely to candied grapefruit baked into rum bread with a hint of vetiver. For me, the vetiver might seem less pronounced as it has aged and I previously tested the Single Note of vetiver.
- Dry: After a shower, the scent has greened out a little. It’s not as citrusy, but I can smell the patchouli much better now. Merged with the vetiver, it’s an earthy delight.
