Scent Name:  Thirteen (13)

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab –  November 2009

Scent Description and Notes: “It’s Friday the 13th in the Miskatonic Valley! A base of Mother Shub’s dark chocolate fudge, raw vanilla, and sibilant black incense dusted by thirteen merrily malefic, ill-omened herbs, resins, and flowers: prune, musk seed, baneberry, myrrh, wild tobacco, hemp, datura, bluebell, cypress, hemlock, snakeweed, opoponax, and black hellebore. -BPAL

Oil Color: – I cannot tell the color of the oil by looking into the brown apothecary bottle.

Bottle Design and Artwork:  This is a 5ml standard brown apothecary bottle.  The label extends just under halfway around the bottom.  The label features the name of the company nearly along the bottom in thin white block font in a black text field.  The name of the scent is a 13 out of green tentacles, which is the primary focus of the image,  The background features falling snow and the image is also framed by tentacles.

Scent:

  • ITB:  Dark chocolate fudge is correct!  There is also black incense, prune, vanilla, and just a little green (hemlock, I think) present so far.
  • Wet: Warm chocolate fudge, vanilla, incense, prune, faint tobacco smoke, and bluebell.  It actually reminds me of a cafe next to an overgrown garden.  Interesting.
  • Dry: The incense and herbal notes with touches of florals becomes more dominant than the fudge, although that is still apparent.  The prune and vanilla are still there but faintly so, which give it an interesting sweetness.
Other Impressions: None.
