Scent Name: Krampus 2013
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Yule 2013
Scent Description and Notes: “Anything BUT jolly! Draped with chains and bells, wielding both whip and rod, this rag-clad, horned, red-skinned, soot-covered leering creature is both the companion and the antithesis of rosy-cheeked and ebullient Kris Kringle. He is called by many names, and, in a myriad of cultures, he is seen with different robes and faces, but he is nevertheless always a sinister and fearsome instrument of Santa’s wrath: he wields a switch on all irredeemably naughty children before tossing them into his large black sack and whisking them away. Be good, or Krampus will toss you in a river! Sinister red musk, black leather, dusty rags, and wooden switches.“ -BPAL
Oil Color: – A ruddied amber color.
Bottle Design and Artwork: his is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a decant from Absinthetics. On the back, she has the notes of the scent, the title of the scent in orange, the company acronym in bold, and her decanting information in green. The image is exactly the image on the 5ml bottle, which is displayed below.
- ITB: It’s musky with tones of aged dirt (not messy, but like dirt in an attic), and resinous wood.
- Wet: There’s a perfume-y aspect to the scent at first on my skin, but I an still detect a fragrant wood, red musk, a touch of dust, and now a nice leather note.
- Dry: After a while, it’s more of a nice, fragrant wood, a nice musk, and a faint impression of leather. It’s pleasant, actually.
