Scent Name: La Papesse

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – The Fool’s Journey: The High Priestess – Aspects of the High Priestess

Scent Description and Notes: “A visionary heretic, martyred to usher in a new Aeon: rose oudh, blackened myrrh, and cathedral incense.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/limited-edition/the-fools-journey/the-high-priestess/la-papesse/

Oil Color: The color of apricot-rose jelly.

Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 1/32 ml imp that has been decanted for me by Yowahoshihime. Her label features the scent notes and her decanter information on the back. The front has the name of the  scent and company name along with the label art, which is as follows:

  • ITI: Oh, that smells like a heady incense shop.  Thick, resinous incense swirls around thick gobs of myrrh.  Yum!
  • Wet: The incense isn’t nearly as strong on my skin, but the incense with the myrrh are still a resin-lover’s dream.  I do get just a tinge  of sweet rose like a subtle flourish along the border of the other two notes. The rose does seem to warm and bloom the longer it sits on my skin.
  • Dry: Oh, wow, that develops! Rich incense of frankincense, sandalwood, and a dash of patchouli dance together with delightfully dark myrrh while a ghostly, rosy sweetness lingers below.

Other Impressions:  “It reminds me of a hotel bathroom’s soap, and not a 5 star hotel…like a 3.5 or a 4 star hotel.” -Kelly
