Scent Name: East African Black Patchouli

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Single Notes

Scent Description and Notes: Smokier and woodier than her Red cousin, East African Black Patchouli is rich, passionate, and earthy, possessing a unique, distinctive elegance. – 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 orange 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 black alchemical sign of sulfur (which is BPAL’s symbol as well).


  • ITB: The patchouli here is smoky and reminds me a bit of coffee.  It’s much more pleasant than I had anticipated.
  • Wet: Yes, that’s nice.  It’s smoky as before, but now with a luscious earthiness.
  • Dry:  The scent is now earthy and black with a touch of resin.  It’s nice and would be great layered with a rose single note.
Other Impressions:  None.
