Name:  Umbra Resurrected

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab –   Bewitching Brews: Resurrected

Scent Description and Notes: “The deepest, darkest point in a shadow; the area contained within the shadow of an eclipse. East African black patchouli, cedarwood, vetiver and a dribble of cinnamon.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/limited-edition/resurrected/umbra-resurrected/

Oil Color: Light reddish oil when applied directly on my skin.

Bottle Design and Artwork:  This is a standard brown apothecary bottle.  The label wrapped around the bottle features the name of the company and “Resurrected” in orange bold font justified to the left along the top and the bottom of the bottle.  The name of the scent  is in much larger while bold font justified to the right above the company name. The label art is as featured:

  • ITB: Deep, dark patchouli pulsates under the dense woods while feral cinnamon slinks underneath. It reminds me of a jungle, shadowed by thick woods, soil rich and and loamy.
  • Wet:  The vetiver and cedarwood roil forth, over the patchouli, only to be pulled back into the dark earth, burning with a subtle cinnamon in its center.
  • Dry:  After 10 hours, the scent is still very much still lovely – slightly spiced patchouli warmed among gentle woods.
Other Impressions: I remember bemoaning the fate that I wasn’t able to acquire a bottle of this one when I reviewed the original Umbra. I’m tickled that Beth brought it back and I’ve worn it about four times before reviewing it today.
