Scent Name: Groom of Frankenstein
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Event Exclusive: DragCon 2018
Scent Description and Notes: “A shock in a jock: the perfect drag king cologne. Black leather and a snap of ozone.“-bpal.org
Oil Color: Colorless on my skin.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 5ml brown glass vial. The label features the name of the scent along the top, centered, in a bold green font. The company name is in the same font along the bottom. The image is of a Drag King with stubble, whose hair mimics the Bride of Frankenstein’s, but in a more masculine cut.
- ITB: Groom is definitely a black leather note with crisp ozone. The leather is stiff and new while the ozone crackles around it with the subtlest undertone of lemon.
- Wet: While it stays fairly true to what I smelled in the bottle, the leather note is just so beautiful. It reminds me of high-end stiff leather boots or polished black riding tack. The ozone is evocative of the air before a thunderstorm while the hits of lemon and an invigorating quality to the scent.
- Dry: It smells like sky and the earth seconds into a thunderstorm with a masculine tone.
Other Impressions: “It smells like Michael Jordan cologne.” – Tony
