Scent Name: Gingerbread Villain

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab –    Yule: Gingerbread Cotillion 2013

Scent Description and Notes: “Gingerbread Villian

I’m three-quarters gone!

Gingerbread fougere, with hints of lilac, lime, and citrus musk. -BPAL

Oil Color: – Nearly colorless.

Bottle Design and Artwork:  This 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 front is an image of a flexing gingerbread man.

Scent:

  • ITI:  This one smells like gingerbread, although much lighter than Snake or Troll, framed by a paper-y and very light fougere and citrus musk.  It’s enough to change the tone of the gingerbread, which has a tendency to dominate.
  • Wet:  It’s very similar to its iteration in the imp, although I am also getting some of the lilac.  It’s actually a much prettier scent than some of the other gingerbreads, and honestly, a bit more wearable on a regular basis.
  • Dry:  This is really a lovely scent.  It’s sugared lilac fougere with a subtle tones of lime that serve to ground the gingerbread note.  In fact, I’d say the fougere is the dominant note in this scent ans the gingerbread serves as a mid tone to sweet the other notes.
Other Impressions:  None.
