Scent Name: Kuang Shi

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Diabolus, Discontinued 3/18/14

Scent Description and Notes: TBust out the dzang dzi! This scent honors the zombies of Chinese lore. Mandarin orange, white musk, mango, and white sandalwood. – BPAL

Oil Color: – (Cannot tell in brown apothecary bottles)

Bottle Design and Artwork:  This is a standard 5ml brown apothecary bottle.  The label extends just under halfway around the bottom.  The label features the name of the company along with the phrase “hand blended perfume oil” framing the BPAL symbol along the bottom.  The name of the scent takes up the largest portion of the label in tall block fond.  All of this is set against a parchment colored background and framed by an ornate iron-work border.


  • ITB:  This really is an absolutely gorgeous scent, even on first sniff, it’s like a less creamy creamsicle with tones of mango and gentle sandalwood underneath.
  • Wet:  It’s still really lovely.  The mandarin is a bit more distinct, but the mango paired with the musk and sandalwood is still warm, creamy, and just delicious.  Yum!
  • Dry:  It’s a soft candied mango and light, billowy sandalwood and musk with faintly more citrus mandarin under it all.  This is an absolutely lovely blend and I’m sad to get to know if after it was discontinued.
Other Impressions:  “Mandarin rind and banana Laffy Taffy.” -Tony
