Scent Name: Absinthe and Lace
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Retail Exclusive: Dark Delicacies
Scent Description and Notes: “Inspired by Edgar Degas’ L’Absinthe, and created in the vein of the Dark Delicacies / Black Phoenix lace-themed collaborations. A scent of dissipation and ennui: green cognac and icy absinthe, louched, spilling onto lace that is drooping with neglect and darkened by tobacco smoke.“ – 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 absinthe green block font against a black text field; above the image is the company for which it was made. The scent name white Italic romantic font just above the company name. The image is Degas’ L’Absinthe.
- ITB: It’s absinthe, but much softer from the lace and the tobacco smoke.
- Wet: The scent is almost fruity when I apply it to my skin. I think this is from the green cognac, which is followed by the absinthe and then the tobacco smoke. I don’t get the same softness from the lace as I did in the bottle.
- Dry: The tobacco now emerges as the primary note, which melds beautifully with the green cognac, light absinthe, and sugared lace.
