Scent Description and Notes: “NIGHT THOUGHTS
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Stars, you are unfortunate, I pity you,
Beautiful as you are, shining in your glory,
Who guide seafaring men through stress and peril
And have no recompense from gods or mortals,
Love you do not, nor do you know what love is.
Hours that are aeons urgently conducting
Your figures in a dance through the vast heaven,
What journey have you ended in this moment,
Since lingering in the arms of my beloved
I lost all memory of you and midnight.

Lilac, blue musk, dianthus, cedar, neroli, ozone, and luminous Eastern herbs. -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 in   and collection in extended block font in black and grey respectively along the bottom of the image.  The scent name is centered on the image in red block font,, while the background looks like a faded typed poem.

  • ITB:  It’s very floral in the bottle – lilac and dianthus with a touch of cedar.
  • Wet:  It’s a bit more green on my skin and reminds me in some way of Mandrake Charm a little bit, but as it dries, the blue musk and neroli make the scent much more enticing. 
  • Dry: It dries to a lilac powder with a touch of musk, light herbs, and ozone.  It reminds me of sweet whispering around twilight. 

Other Impressions: None.
