Scent Name: Time’s Infliction of Eternity
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Retail Exclusive: Century Guild/Gail Potocki’s Fragmented Alice
Scent Description and Notes: “Time’s Infliction of Eternity:
A sanguine blend of Dragon’s Blood sedum and black tea.“ -BPAL
Oil Color: I cannot tell from the brown apothecary bottle.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 5ml brown apothecary bottle. The label features a man that looks very much like I had envisioned Dorian Gray. While I’m not familiar with Potocki’s work, he looks like he could be the Mad Hatter as he seems to have tea from different cups and containers gently spilling out and onto his right shoulder while he tilts his head to the side. The label features the name of the scent and the company name in the same thin block font framing the image.
- ITB: I was expecting something much stronger, much more resinous. Instead, I get a really lovely scent composed of fragrant black tea and something pleasantly floral and perhaps a touch of licorice.
- Wet: A very floral, almost licorice smelling dragon’s blood mingles with darker tannin-laden tea (like English Breakfast). It’s gorgeously dark and enticing, while still being slightly sweet and now faintly resinous.
- Dry: Once dried, the scent becomes a very subtle blend of floral dragon’s blood and faintly sugared tea. It’s a bit more gentle now, but still a very attractive scent.
Other Impressions: None.
