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. On the other side, the title of the scent written in large, clear black font outlined with red on the front.


  • ITI:  A dusty orange blossom with slight carnation spice.  It’s…odd.  I’m not sure as to whether or not I like it.
  • Wet:  The patchouli rivals much of the orange blossom and carnation, but there’s more spiciness and floral tones than anything sweet.  There is a touch of muskiness, but it reads as a honey-d musk.  It’s growing on me as it settles.
  • Dry:  The patchouli takes over much of the scent once dried.  I’m having trouble, in fact, picking up anything other than that.  Granted, it’s a really intense, deep, non soil-laden patchouli, which makes the note pleasant even on its own.
