Scent Name: Autumn Lace

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab –  Retail Exclusive: Dark Delicacies

Scent Description and Notes: “An October funeral, 1888. Black linen and delicate, sugar-spun lace suffused with the scent of tobacco, black tea, Indian musk, liturgical incense, and cognac, with a drop of laudanum and crushed Autumn leaves. – Dark Delicacies

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 bottom in taupe block font; above the image is the company for which it was made.  The scent name is black thin font just above the company name.  The image is the a woman in turn-of-the-century garb mounted on a broom heading toward a jock-o-lantern, set against a full moon.

Scent:

  • ITB:  I had to put this off for a few days while I waited for my cold to dissipate as this is not the strongest scent.  It’s leaves, linen, cognac, tobacco, and sugared lace in the bottle.
  • Wet:  The cognac is much stronger on my skin and the laudanum is now present.  I get a little black tea with the linen, sugar spun lace, and thick tobacco.
  • Dry:  It is certainly party of the lace family.  The linen and tobacco reign supreme, but are followed closely by the sugar spun lace and Indian musk.  It’s a lovely scent.
Other Impressions: “Buttery and slightly like cocoa.” -Tony
