Scent Description and Notes: “A breathtaking seductress caught in a stolen affair between light and dark as Turkish rose sparkles and intrigues beneath notes of spicy ginger and a sultry veil of velvet oud and mystic papyrus. “She turned the dial until the safe opened, revealing the diamond. She had stolen jewels before, but none compared with this one. She left a single rose and the scent of her perfume in its place for him to find. In a moment she’d be halfway around the world and he would be in pursuit. The chase began again…”

- ITV: I remember sniffing this one and being very pleasantly surprising. It was a refreshing rose floral with bright notes that were both familiar and oddly original at the same time, which stems from the combination of the oud, ginger, rose, papyrus, bergamot, and benjoin, which is also known as styrax. I’ve known styrax in a few other Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab scents, but I’ve never smelled it in designer scents before.
- Wet: Gosh, on the skin, the scent is absolutely brilliant. The styrax melds beautifully with the rose, lending a resinous but slightly citrusy and acerbic quality to the sweet softness and gentle floral of both the Turkish rose and rose accord, while the ginger adds a more mature note to the mix. There is still something exquisitely sumptuous and even drippingly ripe about this scent that almost reminds me of lychee, but with more resin – perhaps the oud mingled with the bergamot and velvety papyrus notes, but this scent is magical.
- Dry: The scent gets sweeter as it dries -aspects of the styrax and bergamot buoyed by the rose help carry this scent as one that satisfies those who enjoy resinous, floral, and even sweet and foody scents.
