Scent Name: Lily, The Prostitute
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Pretty Deadly
Scent Description and Notes: “Heady blossoms of jasmine, white gardenia, and magnolia sharpened by neroli, given a voluptuous depth by red patchouli, oakmoss, and cedar.“ -blackphoenixalchemylab.com
Oil Color:I cannot see through the dark brown glass.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a 5ml standard brown apothecary bottle. The label extends just under halfway around the bottom. The label has a violet cast wit the name of the character in white fount outlined in a softer fuchsia and the name of the collection and company name in a similar, smaller font at the bottom. The image is of Lily staring over her shoulder.
- ITB: Jasmine rushes at my nose like an over-eager line backer, nearly bowling me over. Gardenia sweeps in quickly after as if trying to help me up from my initial shock. IT’s certainly very strong, white floral.
- Wet: On my skin, the jasmine is a bit more restrained, although still somewhat brutish. There’s an odd watery or papery quality that the magnolia is adding, I think. I’d love more resin, though…or any at all.
- Dry: Sadly, Lily has remained largely jasmine for me, and it’s the kind of jasmine that reminds me of late 90s wall plug-ins air fresheners.
Other Impressions: None.
