Scent Name: Lily Witch
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Lilith 2014: Princesses, Ghosts & Superheroes
Scent Description and Notes: “Lilith named this scent, and said this perfume should smell like witches. Her interpretation is swathed in anise, lime, almond, and witchin’ herbs, and holds a bouquet of pale, graceful lilies. The end result is a sweet, nutty absinthe’d lime with a hint of spice and leather.” – https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/in-memoriam/liliths/lilith-2014-princesses-ghosts-superheroes/lily-witch/
Oil Color: Slightly yellow on my skin.
Bottle Design and Artwork: his is a standard BPAL brown apothecary bottle. The label wrapped around the bottle features the name of the scent in bold, pale lavender font at the top of the image. At the bottom of the image is the collection date in very small plum font just above the company name, wich is in a slightly larger purpled grey font. The label art is as follows:
- ITI: It smells like lime marzipan with a touch of seasonal spices like cardamom and all spice. I’m not a fan of marzipan at all.
- Wet: The lime is much stronger on my skin (thank goodness!), followed by marzipan mingled with anise. Below the surface, notes of leather, something effervescent, and slightly spicy brew.
- Dry: It’s so much better dried. Now, I get lime, soft anise, a gentle dusting of spice, and actual almond slivers rather than the dreaded marzipan.
Other Impressions: The throw on this scent is pretty good and the intensity of the wet version of the scent lasted for about 3 hours before finally settling down.
