Scent Name: A Un Diner D’Athees

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – The Devil’s Lovers:  Lupercalia 2017

Scent Description and Notes: “White lavender and ambrette seed, grey patchouli, rum absolute, and vetiver.” – https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/limited-edition/lupercalia-2017/the-devils-lovers/a-un-di%CC%82ner-dathees/

Oil Color:  The color of dark amber.

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 is a pencil or charcoal image of a woman in an open negligee in what looks like the throes of death or something of that ilk while on a table.  A pair of legs extends to the right on the floor.

  • ITI: The rum absolute and white lavender emerges strongly to form something that has a slightly creamy edge to it.The vetiver adds a touch of smoke, which enhances the herbal lavender while the patchouli and ambertte seed notes add some spicy quality to the scent without making the scent too oriental.
  • Wet:  The creamy quality to the lavender and rum absolute remain virtually unchanged on my skin. As it starts to dry, however, the lavender strengthens and allows the grey patchouli to dance softly underneath.
  • Dry: After 4 hours, the scent is very light, consisting of faint white lavender, mild ambrette seed and the spiciness of rum absolute and patchouli with out the earthy or boozey qualities. The notes themselves don’t fight for dominance.  As a whole, it’s a very pretty and well blended scent. If you are a lavender fan, you might need to try this one.

Other Impressions:  A stranger mentioned that he thought I “smelled lovely” in line at the grocery store.
