Scent Description and Notes: “Snuggly brown musk, spicy carnation, leather balsam, bourbon vanilla, terebinth pine, yew berry, and a touch of clove.“ -BPAL
Oil Color: – A deep walnut wood color.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a 5ml standard brown apothecary bottle. The label extends just under halfway around the bottom. The image is a black and white daughter of a werewolf. The name of the scent and collection frame the image in black text fields, the font within each is a slightly thicker block font. The name is in shadowed, stylized black font next to her image.
- ITB: It’s spicy, warm, and very brown. Carnation and clove pair beautifully with the brown musk and bourbon vanilla underneath. I’m not picking up on any other notes aside from those at the moment.
- Wet: The warm musk surrounds and lends a delicious softness to the clove and carnation. The pine has now emerged just underneath the top-notes, followed softly by the bourbon vanilla and yew berry. I get a very subtle impression of leather, but nothing more. Gorgeous!
- Dry: I love this one so much – clove, musk, vanilla, and a hint of pine lend itself to a warm scent that’s also rather alluring.
