Scent Name: The Future Ball

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab –   Lilith’s birthday update, 9/06/13

Scent Description and Notes: “THE FUTURE BALL
One day, Lilith digs up one of my old crystal balls and asks me what it does. I tell her that some people read the future in crystal balls, so she asks me to tell her what’s going to happen tomorrow.

“I see a little girl waking up and asking for spaghetti for breakfast.”
“I see a yellow building and a yellow toy bus.”
“I see a big brown dog. The dog is trying to steal a little girl’s dinner.”
“I see a little girl surrounded by stuffed animals. Her mother is trying to get her to go to sleep, but the little girl keeps asking for more stories.”

This went on every day for weeks. She’d pull out the ball, and ask (demand) that I tell her what was going to happen to her tomorrow. Fun stuff, motherhood!

Crystalline white musk, Somalian olibanum, smoky benzoin, Damascus rose, dark myrrh, sacred sandalwood, life everlasting, rock rose, and gummy bear fingerprint residue. -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 a white block font along the bottom of the image.  Just above that is the collection information in the same pink block font.  Along the top,a larger version of the white block font displays the name.  The image is of Lilith looking into a crystal ball.


  • ITB: Interesting.  I get olibanum, sandalwood, , something oddly sweet, and life everlasting.
  • Wet:  Sweet sandalwood paired with musk and rose is simply brilliant.  I get a little bit of the myrrh in there as well, which makes me happy as I love resins, myrrh in particular.
  • Dry:  After about 10 hours, the scent is lightly sweet from the gummy bear and musk notes, slightly powdery in a good way from the sandalwood and still beautifully resinous.  This is very much a keeper.
Other Impressions:  “It basically smells like florals marinated in cloves, but it’s a little old lady-y.”
