Scent Name: Odic Force

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab –  Yule 2017: An Evening with the Spirits

Scent Description and Notes: “The desire to inflict a mortal wound on the monster, Superstition, which, from a similar origin, a few centuries ago, inflicted on European society so vast an amount of misery, and by whose influence not hundreds, but thousands, of innocent persons died in tortures, on the rack and at the stake; — the desire made me wish to make the experiment, if possible, of bringing a highly sensitive person, by night, to a churchyard. I thought it possible that they might see, over graves where mouldering bodies lay, something like that which Billing had seen.

Eucalyptus blossom, lime rind, and white mint coalescing into a green-tinged amber glow.

Oil Color: Colorless.

Bottle Design and Artwork:  This is a decanted imp.  It features the collection name and notes on the back of the label and a copy of the label art on front:

  • ITI:  It smells like lime Hi-Chew candies!  The lime is bright and effervescent, the amber sweet while the mint and eucalyptus add a sense of coolness, like the chill that comes over you when entering a dark. slightly creepy room in the middle of the night.
  • Wet: It reminds me of fresh lime gelato garnished with mint.  No eucalypti or amber yet, but I’d be thrilled to pieces if this scent doesn’t change. Yet as I type, the scent begins to shift, taking on a more powder tone from the amber that softens the crisp sharpness of the lime.
  • Dry: Wow, that does shift.  The powdery green amber wraps around the lime, diffusing its acidity and fruitiness, leaving me instead with the sweetness of faint lime candy infused with a hint of faded mint.
Other Impressions: “It’s like car air freshener and cider.” -Tony
