Scent Name: You Fancy Me Mad

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Halloweenies 2017:  The Tell-Tale Heart

Scent Description and Notes:  “Now this is the point. You fancy me mad. Madmen know nothing. But you should have seen me. You should have seen how wisely I proceeded — with what caution — with what foresight — with what dissimulation I went to work! I was never kinder to the old man than during the whole week before I killed him.

Percolating with derangement: flashing spikes of orange blossom, neroli, lemon, and bitter clove in a bubbling mass of opoponax, patchouli, and thick, black vetiver.-https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/limited-edition/weenies-2017/you-fancy-me-mad/

Oil Color: The color of Lemonchello.

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: Lemon essence, strong neroli, orange blossoms are the most dominant notes upon first sniff, but the pleasant patchouli does seems to develop on deeper inhalation.  Thankfully, because that note isn’t too earthy, it doesn’t detract from the bright, citrus scent as a whole.
  • Wet:  The lemon is much more balanced with the neroli and orange blossom. The vetiver lingers gently beneath while the patchouli adds a modicum of pleasant earthiness to the scent. I’m liking it so far, especially as a bright citrus mid-spring scent.
  • Dry: After sitting for half a day, the scent has morphed into a perfume I imagine a mature woman wearing – orange blossom, musky powder, and a hint of neroli.

Other Impressions: None.
