Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). The label wrapped around the bottle features an Art-Deco inspired phoenix with the name of the company next to the phoenix.

- ITI: It’s smoky and black – that’s about all I’m getting, but I really like it so far.
- Wet: It’s like peppermint, sassafras, opium smoke, and subtle myrrh. This reminds me of a hookah bar.
- Dry: This one is also a scent that doesn’t last long on the wrists, which surprises me as the intensity wet is so much. After only a couple of hours, the scent is softly sweet, like a very light, dainty apricot tart with a dusting of nutmeg. Ia actually really like how this changes. It’s like a smoldering, exotic dragon when wet, but like a soft, feminine, comforting perfume when dried.
