Scent Name: Danse de la Mort

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

Scent Description and Notes: “White sandalwood, opium tar, tobacco leaf, and white amber.” –

Oil Color:  The color of dilluted lemon juice.

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 consists of death, back turned toward the audice, looking over its shoulder, wearing a bonnet and lifting its skirt.

  • ITI:  The scent is sweeter than I expected, almost as if the scent of a warm, baked apple was infused into the scent. On second sniff, the amber and tobacco leafs tumble forward, making the sweetness I initially smelled all the more delightful.
  • Wet:  It still smells like baked apple at the very top of the scent, but the perfume opens up to deliciously intoxicating opium mingled with tobacco and a touch of sandalwood.  The warmth I smelled from the amber isn’t as clear, unless that is what I am detecting as baked apple.
  • Dry: After two hours, warm opium waltzes with amber and sandalwood in a delicious display of sultry spices and resins.

Other Impressions:  The Uber drive said that my husband and I were a great smelling couple.
