Scent Name: Eldritch Dark
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Black Phoenix Trading Post: Yule 2013
Scent Description and Notes: “The Miskatonic Valley’s premiere sex shop. Black and red musks with honey, leather, and sugared black rose.“ -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 image is of a pale woman with come-hither eyes, wrapped in green tentacles, opening a curtain leading to some kind of inner sanctum. The name of the company is in blood red, slightly witchy block font, while the name of the scent is in a larger, black version of the font above the company name.
- ITB: Warm and freshly oiled black leather (like Doc Marten leather), the perfume of sugared roses, and sultry musks waft to meet my nose. Goodness, this is a very enticing scent.
- Wet: The red musk and sugar tones along with very dark roses is more prominent on my skin, but the dizzying scent of leather makes this scent just scream sexy on my wrist. I may need another bottle…or three.
- Dry: The roses are the most lasting note here, but it is certainly thickly dark roses with hints of deep sugar and faint black leather behind it. It’s glorious and I imagine that it will age very, very well.
