Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab –Diabolus
Scent Description and Notes: “All look and likeness caught from earth,
All accident of kin and birth,
Had pass’d away. There was no trace
Of aught on that illuminated face,
Upraised beneath the rifted stone
But of one spirit all her own;–
She, she herself, and only she,
Shone through her body visibly.
Myrrh, dark musk, attar of rose and ylang ylang.“ – bpal.org
Oil Color: A honeyed nectarine color.
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: Mechanical oil, ozone, myrrh, and ylang ylang. How odd.
- Wet: The impression is of something wet, dark, hidden in the hoods, slightly wavering, and just characteristic of ectoplasmic energy. I wouldn’t have guessed that the combination of notes would yield that, but I do think the dark musk, really earthy, although patchouli-esque myrrh, and attar of rose yield a really haunting base, while the ylang ylang add s an ephemeral, ozone quality to the scent as a whole. I like it!
- Dry: I just get myrrh and attar of rose. Honestly, I’m really impressed that the scent has lasted 17 hours. Wow.
