Scent Name: Dragon’s Blood

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Carnaval Diabolique: Act IV: The Ladies of the Grindhouse

Scent Description and Notes: Golden amber, vanilla musk, myrrh, cedar, carnation, and red sandalwood. -BPAL

Oil Color: I cannot tell from the brown apothecary bottle.

Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a 5ml brown apothecary bottle.  The label extends just under halfway around the bottom.  The image is framed by a light salmon text box along the top and the bottom which feature the name of the company on top and the name of the collection in black block font on the bottom.  The title of the scent bridges the bottom text box and the image and is rendered in a cool, Western gold and black gradated black font.  The image is of a Spanish-looking woman carrying a set of keys, set against a hallway.

  • ITB:  Dusky, warm amber, sandalwood, and vanilla musk.  It’s certainly feminine so far.
  • Wet: There is a bit more depth once applied to the skin as the carnation becomes apparent and the vanilla musk along with the sandalwood become much more assertive.  
  • Dry: After 12 hours, the scent is still strong and glorious – rich, golden amber, sandalwood, and creamy vanilla musk.  I smell fantastic!

Other Impressions: None.
