Scent Name: Hot Buttered Rum

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab –  Unreleased Scents / Yuletide Will Call Toy Drive Exclusive

Scent Description and Notes: “Fossilized amber, juniper berry, wild musk, oudh, vetiver, white cedar, black currant, oakmoss, and leather. -BPAL

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 in black  block font near the bottom of the label.  The date and collection are in similar but smaller font near the top, separated by a heart.  The name of the scent is in a font that looks thick and hastily drawn block font in black and is shadowed in red.  All of this is set against a bright and light red stripe graduated background.

Scent:

  • ITB:  I get ester-y banana and rum.  I’m not a fan of banana scents, so I do hope it improves.
  • Wet:  It’s ester, the vapor-notes of the rum with a hint of subtle spice.  I’m still not sure why I’m getting banana, though.
  • Dry:  I get more rum now, but it’s banana rum when paired with the overtly sweet spicing of the butter.  I’m not a fan, but someone who enjoys foody scents might like this.
Other Impressions: “Malted butter.  It smells like malted butter and rum.” -Tony
