Scent Name: Revisiting Scenes of Past Delight

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Event Exclusive: Bats Day 2014

Scent Description and Notes: “The pure and luminous joy of dawning love: white melon, oakmoss, bergamot, apple blossom, Italian mandarin, Florentine iris, nutmeg, and white musk.” -http://www.blackphoenixgazette.com/announcing-the-bats-day-2014-exclusive-scents/

Oil Color: A refreshing lemonade color.

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 features a lovely painting of an overgrown temple.


  • ITI: It’s sweet from the apple blossom, while being deliciously refreshing from the heavy melon note.
  • Wet: I actually get happy when I apply the perfume.  It reminds me of something familiar that I can’t seem to place. It’s a lovely musky white melon flesh note with a touch of the fizz from mandarin and the subtle softness from apple blossom.
  • Dry: It fades pretty quickly, but what is left is still pleasant and evocative, like a warm spring day amongst the flowering apple trees and beds of early flowers, but suffused with a sweet muskiness and a touch of spice from the melon, oakmoss, faint nutmeg and bergamot.  I really like this scent and I’m more than a little upset that I just picked up an imp of it. 

Other Impressions: None.
