Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Weenies 2017

Oil Color: Clear.

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:  Whew boy, is that sweet.  That’s definitely cardamom, rich and spicy, folded into gobs of sweet cream, topped with plenty of pumpkin spices. .  There’s also a bit of sweet cakiness (like pumpkin bread or an Old Fashioned donuts) underneath all the rich spices.
  • Wet: Damn, the cardamom almost burns my eyes.  That’s definitely cardamom pumpkin cake.
  • Dry:  Four hours later, the scent is vanilla-infused heavy cream with only the dusty remains of once-faded cardamom.  I actually like this much better now that it has time to settle.  It’s just a little too cloying when freshly applied and during the first couple hours of dry-down.
Other Impressions: “It reeks of Bath and Body Works pumpkin holiday soaps. That’s too strong.” -Kelly
