Scent Description and Notes: “Rum, frankincense, leather accord, bourbon vanilla, champaca flower, and ambrette seed.“ -BPAL
Oil Color: I cannot tell from 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 and collection in navy block font bracketing a navy text field with cut-outs of the scent name. The image is a shunga print of couples fornicating.

- ITB: Bourbon vanilla, ambrette, and champaca flower. The combination smells like a floral banana smoothie to me.
- Wet: Champaca flower…oop, there’s that banana again. Okay, now that I concentrate, there’s bourbon vanilla, ambrette seed, and the tiniest dab of leather. It’s somewhat spicy if I had to categorize this scent.
- Dry: Okay, less banana now and more champaca flower, ambrette seed, bourbon, and light frankincense. It’s nice, but not awesome.
Other Impressions: “It smells like what I imagine Barbie perfume would smell like.” -Tony
