each thought a loneliness

as winter dusk descends

Desolation at the last moment in the gloaming on New Year’s Day: winter snow with lavender, benzoin, lychee, starfruit, carrot seed, white iris, pale resins, and a cluster of melancholy, lachrymose lunar herbs and florals. -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 along the top of the label in white bloc kfont with the collection name and date is super tiny white font underneath.  The scent name is in large yellow block font just below the image of winged angels sobbing.

  • ITB: Yum. Resin and lychee.  Of course, lychee is my favorite note in the world, so this is made of win so far.
  • Wet:  Lychee is still strongest, witch which I’m absolutely fine, then followed by starfruit, snow, and some carrot seed.
  • Dry:  It’s gorgeous, simply gorgeous.  This will be my lychee-lavender-snow go-to from now on.  It’s fruity and cool.
Other Impressions: None.
