Name: Dragon’s Eye
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Discontinued: Ars Draconis
Scent Description and Notes: “A piercing, radiant perfume: dragon’s blood resin, lily of the valley, lilac and galbanum.“ – BPAL
Oil Color: A gorgeous mix of orange and watermelon Jolly Rangers colored oil.
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: The lily of the valley is very strong, almost bordering on the strength of jasmine notes for me, but at least I can smell the gentle purple lilac poking through set against the dragon’s blood resin and galbanum. It’s a much more floral version of the Ars Draconis when compared to the others I have tested.
- Wet: The florals are still dominant on my skin, which makes the scent as a whole take on a Glade, artificial quality on my skin for some reason. In fact, the dragon’s blood is really quite subtle, and I think that greater dominance would help the allure of the scent overall.
- Dry: after a full 12 hours, the scent is still noticeable – composed of light lilac and a much more well behaved lily with a touch of resin for depth. I enjoy this much, much more dried.
