At last, I’m trying to reclaim some of my hobbies from my monstrous work schedule.  It’s been far too long, but I’m determined to finish!

Scent Name: Goatweed Leafwing

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Metamorphosis 2014: Butterflies of Louisiana

Scent Description and Notes:Tonka bean, orange blossom, ambrette seed, and brown sandalwood. -bpal.org

Oil Color: A spun hay color.

Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a decant from Absinthetics.  On the back, she has the notes of the scent, the name of the scent in orange bold font, and her decanting information in green.  The font of the label features the sample label art as the bottle.


  • ITI: It’s pleasantly clean, like a bed and breakfast washroom with those fancy sea-shell shapes.  I think I’m mostly getting that from the orange blossom and ambrette.  However, there is a comforting warmth from the tonka and sandalwood, but it’s not overpowering.
  • Wet: The scent still smells like and a little sopay, the the orange blossom begins to shine.  Just below that, the lovely, fragrant, woodsy tone of sandalwood and tonka romp freely.  I enjoy this quite a bit
  • Dry: The ambrette seed lends a duskiness to the scent in its dried version.  The tonka and sandalwood, a soft, heady sweetness, while the orange blossom still evokes the most comforting, clean image of a sun-dappled B&B in the English countryside. 

Other Impressions: None.
