Scent Name: Hurðaskellir
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Yule Lads: Yule 2015
Scent Description and Notes: “Favorite pastime: slamming doors. What a drama queen! Booming carnation, iced mint, white fir, and itchy patchouli loudly disrupting a dreamy bed of lavender.” -http://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/the-yule-lads/hurdaskellir/
Oil Color: The color of a dandelion flower.
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: Comforting lavender is the first note that greets me, followed closely by fir and mint. It’s a rather clean and refreshing scent so far.
- Wet: Green, astringent, herby (lavender is very clear here), and lovely! I’d actually love a cup of this as tea. The lavender and fir are much sharper on my skin, but I tend to love sharp herb notes and this is no different.
- Dry: Sadly, this doesn’t last on my skin. By the time I got home, it was gone. On second application, the scent becomes clean and comforting. The lavender is much more mellow, and mixed with the fir, carnation, and iced mint, it’s equally refreshing and relaxing, like iced tea on a cool spring evening.
Other Impressions: “It’s like rosemary and other herbs.” -Tony
