Scent Name: All The Dust Of The Land
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Plagues of Egypt
Scent Description and Notes: “Stretch out thy rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice, thorowout all the land of Egypt. And they did so: for Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and smote the dust of the earth, and it became lice, in man and in beast: all the dust of the land became lice throughout all the land of Egypt. And the Magicians did so with their enchantments to bring foorth lice, but they could not: so there were lice vpon man and vpon beast.
An infestation of Ceylon cinnamon bark, black patchouli, tonka absolute, bitter almond, and frankincense.” -http://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/plagues-of-egypt/dust-land/
Oil Color: The color of wheat in August.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This was an imp decanted by Strangemodegirl, which features a small partial label with the name of the scent on top on a stylized font, the name of the collection bellow it in slightly larger font, which is surrounded by ankhs on either side. The title of the company is in a of the scent below the collection, and the decanting information is at the very bottom of the label.
- ITI: Wow, the almond is rather forceful on first sniff, although it is pleasant, milky, sweet, and honestly not all that bitter. I do pick up a slight duskiness from the frankincense, but I don’t smell much else.
- Wet: On my skin, the combination of almond and tonka seem to give birth to a light floral note meddled together with cinnamon and frankincense. The patchouli is strangely absent.
- Dry: Light cinnamon remains, but much of the almond has dissapated. I do still pick up some resin, but to me the scent loses some of it’s mystic after it dries.
Other Impressions:”It’s…busy.” -Tony
