Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Halloweenies 2017: The Tell-Tale Heart
Scent Description and Notes: “Polished mahogany blanketed by myrrh.”-https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/limited-edition/weenies-2017/the-dreadful-silence-of-that-old-house/
Oil Color: The color of white wine.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a decant which features the scent information on back and the image that would be on the bottle on front. The label art is as featured:
- ITI: Deliciously resinous myrrh and rich mahogany are enhanced by a slightly perfume-tinged polish. Enjoyable.
- Wet: The mahogany polished wood is really the star. It’s fragrant, sumptuously woodsy, and sophisticated, almost like a wood fougere. The myrrh certainly adds to the sumptuousness of the scent with a deeply resinous and dark tone. It reminds me of an old, well-kept Victorian home, ridiculously appointed in rich velvets, oriental rugs, and masterwork mahogany carvings polished to a glorious sheen.
- Dry: Myrrh scented mahogany is this scent’s final formal. It has a decent amount of staying power, even if it becomes subtle and stays close to the skin.
Other Impressions: None.
