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.
