Name:  Szepasszony

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Discontinued: Diabolus

Scent Description and Notes: The Fair Lady, Winter Witch, White Maiden of the Storm. Szepasszony is a Hungarian demoness that appears as a stunningly beautiful woman with long, silver-white hair and a blinding white dress. She revels in storms, particularly when hail rains down on her. Water dripping down eaves into a puddle is an invitation for her to cause mischief: she uses the puddle as a magickal tool for casting her wicked spells. It is considered foolhardy to step into a circle of short grass ringed by taller grasses, as those mark the circles where the Fair Lady dances. A chilly, tempestuous whirlwind of clear, airy notes, slashing rain, and a thin undercurrent of white flowers. – bpal.org

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: Sharp white florals and Glade plug in or air freshener with a touch of salt.  It isn’t what I was expecting out of the imp.
  • Wet: And that’s an aquatic.  I put this on as I have to run to an appointment and hesitate as I’m walking out the door, contemplating whether or not I have enough time to wash it off and make my appointment on time.  I don’t, so I have to deal with the damp, chilly aquatic notes, but at least the white floral keep it from being too overwhelming. The do bring a softness to the scent, but the aquatic, saltiness is dominates.
  • Dry: Thankfully, it fades to a combination of watery florals and brine in the distance, which isn’t too bad.  However, that just doesn’t make the cut in my imp box.
Other Impressions: None.
