Name: Loup Garou
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Diabolous
Scent Description and Notes: “The wild, untamed essence of lycanthropy. Primeval in its raw power and insatiable hunger: juniper, cypress and galangal with the barest touch of eucalyptus.“ – blackphoenixalchemylab.com
Oil Color: Colorless.
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: Loup Garou is crisp and refreshing, like an evergreen forest during a thunderstorm. Juniper and eucalyptus rule all others in the imp.
- Wet: IT’s very similar to the impression I received when I unstoppered the imp, although I’m getting a touch of cypress and a hint of spiciness from the galangal, but these notes I have to try to tease out over the other two.
- Dry: It’s a much drier scent after four hours. It’s mostly dried cypress and faint enough quantities of eucalyptus and juniper to give it a slightly crisp and astringent tone, but not enough to overpower the drier nature of the cypress note.
