Scent Name:  Unmasking the Sambaso Dancer

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Lupercalia 2014: Novel Ideas for Secret Amusements VII

Scent Description and Notes: “King mandarin, passionfruit, Moroccan rose absolute, labdanum, and amber musk. -BPAL

Oil Color: A copper penny color.

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 of the label has the same image that appeared on the bottle’s label, which is a shunga print of a woman mid-coitus with a man, whom she has just unmasked.


  • ITI:  It’s slightly fruity with a soothing undertone from the rose absolute and amber musk.  So far, so good.
  • Wet: Ah, there’s the passionfruit displayed more clearly against a warm bed of amber musk, flanked by mandarin and a whiff of rose underneath.  It’s a bit of a darker, more sophisticated scent than yesterday’s, but still pleasant. 
  • Dry: After a long walk and several hours, the scent is incredibly faint.  I am only getting the amber musk with a touch of passionfruit, but nothing I could say was definitively that without knowing the notes.

Other Impressions: None.
