Scent Description and Notes: “Marshmallow root, vanilla cream, black ginger, Rainier cherries, white sandalwood, anise seed, and red currants.“ -http://centuryguild.net/products/youths-disengagement-limited-edition-scented-oil-from-black-phoenix-alchemy-lab
Oil Color: A creamy white-ish yellow oil.
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 name of the scent in orange bold font, and her decanting information in green. The font of the label is a copy of the artwork associated with the scent, such as below:
- ITI: It’s foody, but I feel like I’ve smelled this before. It’s thick, cloying vanilla cream infused with gobs of juicy, ripe cherries and currants. Ah, that’s it! It’s very similar to Isle of Eden’s “Can’t Sleep, The Clowns Will Eat Me.”
- Wet: Okay, now it’s a bit different, but I still get the heavy, cloying vanilla cream, but now the marshmallow, sandalwood, and ginger notes emerge, tamping down the overt candied fun-house sweetness of the in-the-imp scent.
- Dry: It once again smells faintly of candied fruit and cream in a highly carnival-esque way. I’m not a huge foody fan, so I’d need to be in the mood for this one.
Other Impressions: None.
