White carnation, cardamom pod, and honey milk. -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/limited-edition/the-fools-journey/the-high-priestess/the-eternal-virgin/

Oil Color: A very faint blushed jelly color.

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: It’s a stranger blend – a thick, milky cream at first, followed by a sugared cardamom and a spicy carnation.  The combination creates something that reminds me of tart berries, even though I know that there are none in this blend.  It’s certainly interesting.
  • Wet: Now, the cardamom is much more present on the initial sniff, mixed with honey-sweetened thick milk. The carnation adds a bit of fresh, slightly spicy floral to the edges of the spiced milk notes.  It reminds me of a Golden Late sipped outside among the crisp fall leaves and tart florals.
  • Dry: The scent doesn’t last as long as I would have anticipated.  It dissipates down from a subtle carnation and hints of spiced milk to a very faint very lightly spiced creamy musk within 6 hours.

Other Impressions:  “It smells like menthol rosemary.” – Tony
