Scent Name: Deux
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Lupercalia: Une Douzaine de Roses
Scent Description and Notes: “Red rose petals dusted with a trove of ancient spices.“-https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/limited-edition/lupercalia-2018/deux/
Oil Color: Slightly yellow on my skin.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 5ml brown glass vial. The name of the company and the collection are in small white bold font framing the image. The label art is a tinted artistic image of a rose. The scent name is in large, shadowed white font just above the company name, which is located closer to the bottom of the label.
- ITB: It reminds me of really fantastic potpourri: dried red roses laden with sandalwood and other dusky, almost vanilla-tinged spices.
- Wet: The rose hides on my skin behind the dried spice notes and vanilla musk, although the rose does shyly sidle forth as the scent begins to dry. The spices remind me of burned incense and old spice cabinets (all spice and coriander I’m getting for some reason).
- Dry: Soft, powdered rose with a light pinch of spiced musk. It’s definitely toned down very quickly and sits very close to the skin after about 2 hours.
Other Impressions: None.
