Scent Name: Saw-Scaled Viper

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab –  Carnaval Diabolique: Act III: The Snake Pit

Scent Description and Notes: “Snake Oil with cinnamon, cassia, and red ginger. – Dark Delicacies

Oil Color: – It’s a dark oranged yellow on my skin.

Bottle Design and Artwork:  This is a 5ml standard brown apothecary bottle.  The label extends just under halfway around the bottom.  The label is a spin-off of Snake Oil’s in that it has the same parchment colored background, black ombre scroll work framing bold, shadowed block font with collection information underneath.  The black font under the bottom ombre scroll/floret reads “The Snake Pit / Black Phoenix Alchemical Lab / Fiaza’s Friends / Carnaval Diabolique.”  The image is of a saw-scaled viper superimposed over the company and collection information.

  • ITB:  Indonesian oil, red ginger, powdery cassia, and a touch of sugar.  It’s a little powdery in the bottle, but it’s worth a try.
  • Wet:  Powdery – cassia, cinnamon, and red ginger root (ground), with a hint of vanilla and Indonesian oil.  It’s certainly strong, but I think I’d like this better if the powdery aspect died down a little.
  • Dry:  After 12 hours, the scent is less powdery, sweeter, and much more appealing in its blend of sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, and Indonesian oils. 
Other Impressions: None.
