I’m anticipating some spicy florals with this one.

Scent Name: Delightful Visitor Among the Haystacks

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Novel Ideas for Secret Amusements: Lupercalia 2017

Scent Description and Notes: “Chrysanthemum incense and red carnation.” – https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/limited-edition/lupercalia-2017/novel-ideas-for-secret-amusements/delightful-visitor-among-the-haystacks/

Oil Color: The color of motor oil.

Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz).  This is a sample from Jenn Nevaril, which has the bottle image on the  front, the name of the scent and date hand written on the back above the typed company acronym and decanting information.  The label art that would be on the bottle features a woman clothed in kimono from waist up, leaning on her back against a haystack with her legs half lifted to the visitor, who is a phallus-headed man clothed save for his own phallus.

  • ITI: Mmm, the chrysanthemum incense is the first note that emerges, gentle, softly late spring floral that’s delicate yet distinctive. I don’t really pick up the spicy carnation, to which I was so looking forward.
  • Wet: Ah, there’s the spicy floral, but it only peeks out before the chrysanthemum incense wafts over top, calming some of that fire.  There’s a faint greenness underneath both notes, which really does remind me of spring.
  • Dry:   After 10 hours, the only scent that’s left on my skin is much-faded carnation with the illusion of the spice it once had.  The scent, while lacking longevity, is lovely.

Other Impressions: “It smells like pumpkin-rose-verbena.” -Tony
