Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Art of the Unicorn Part 1
Scent Description and Notes: “Florentine orris butter, red sandalwood, white patchouli, leather accord, and ambrette musk with a drifting eddy of King mandarin, wild bergamot, bourbon vanilla, and gold-limned saffron.” –https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/limited-edition/mythological-scene-with-a-warrior-addressing-a-lady-outside-a-classical-mansion-two-maidens-riding-unicorns-behind/
Oil Color: A slightly apricot-tinged pale ale color.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a sample from Mystery213. The label features the name of the company and the name of the scent. The bottle art is as follows:
- ITI: The first note reminds me a bit of mineral oil mixed with the almost insect-like quality of ambrette. Soon thereafter fallow mandarin, saffron, sandalwood – altogether the scent seems to be more reminiscent of fruit cake than I had expected.
- Wet: The scent retains its vaguely insect-like quality. I think the ambrette note really isn’t too fond of me, as most of the other notes play nice with my skin chemistry. I do pick up orris butter and saffron with a touch of bourbon and patchouli, but the other notes seem lost on my skin.
- Dry: After 12 hours, the scent is just faint hint of bourbon vanilla and the memory of patchouli. On reapplication, the mandarin and bergamot settle to become a scent more reminiscent of tea with orris butter and sandalwood made overly sweet by the ambrette note. It’s a pass for me.
Other: “It’s like tobacco and maple syrup.” -Tony
