Scent Description and Notes: “Favorite pastime: peeping in yer windows. What a creeper! Spiced rum leather, frankincense, black cedar, sweet tobacco, and honey-gold sandalwood.” -http://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/the-yule-lads/gluggagaegir/
Oil Color: Colorless.
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 bold orange font. Her decanting information is in green. The font of the label features the same label art as the bottle, which is the name in light yellow, shadowed font.
- ITI: Although I’m still recovering from a cold and my sense of smell hasn’t completely returned, this one punches through all of that to present a spicy, smoky, rum-soaked leather that’s slightly peppery from the cedar, tinged with tobacco.
- Wet: On my skin, the tobacco is sweeter, the leather less dominate, the sandalwood (glittering and pure) more prominent.
- Dry: After 8 hours, scrubbing the tub with bleach, and using other cleaning products throughout the day, the scent has settled beautifully. The longevity of the frankincense, sandalwood, and tobacco lend the scent contemplatively innocent and sweetly comforting tone. The remainder of the rum and leather are gentle and soft but also alluring. Gorgeous!
Other Impressions: None.
