Oil Color: A lightly toasted barley 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 people beeing very liberal with their affection in the middle of a festival.

- ITI: It’s darkly fruity and floral. I’m picking up the passionfruit, the plum honey, pomegranate, black currant, and something that reads as slightly soapy (but in a positive way).
- Wet: I think it’s the plum honey that has turned soapy on me. I still get those notes plus the dark purple fruits, although it’s strongly, and I mean very strongly, reminding me of The Body Shop’s Dewberry perfume. Okay, so in direct comparison, BPAL’s Street Fair is sweeter and softer. Dewberry is strong, brazen almost, and slightly green, but still very similar.
- Dry: Dried, the plum honey is softly blended with the vanilla, which has now emerged, in addition to the violet sugar and pomegranate. It’s refreshing and gorgeous!
Other Impressions: None.
