Scent Name:  The Diamond’s Gong

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Only Lovers Left Alive: Story Points

Scent Description and Notes: A celestial hymn, singing to Earth from fifty light years away: ten billion-trillion-trillion-carats of glittering white musk, with cognac, tagetes, white champaca, Gum Arabic, and davana. -http://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/product-category/only-lovers-left-alive/

Oil Color: Can’t recall.

Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a decant from ralenth.  On the back, she has the notes of the scent, the side features her decanting information, and the front features the company acronym, the title of the scent, the collection, and the date, along with a scent-appropriate image.  The label art for the bottle is below:


  • ITI: This scent shares a similar dusky quality when compared to Quintessence of Dust, but the musk here is both more subtle and more lovely.  It’s white and gentle, floating under the swirling champaca.
  • Wet: The cognac barges forward on my skin, but I’m not put off from the scent.  The cognac is both green and floral, which works really well under the champaca, musk, and another note that reads somewhat like amber, which I assume to be the gum arabic.
  • Dry:  It’s a pleasantly gentle blend of musk, floral cognac, champaca, and gum arabic once dried.

Other Impressions: “Thank you for letting me go through your imp box.  I’m taking this one along with Eve, Ava, and a few others to try on myself.  It smells so good.” -Elodie
