Scent Name: The Goat and the Vine

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Halloweenie: Pickman Gallery 2018

Scent Description and Notes: “Harrison Weir

Golden apples, cedar and redwood trellises heavy with grapevine, beeswax, hemp, vanilla benzoin, and bois de rose.”  -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/autumn-collection/halloween-2018/pickman-gallery-2018/the-goat-and-the-vine/

Oil Color: The color of dilute apple cider.

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 below:

  • ITI: Wow, that is a phenomenal apple note – green and tart but delicious.   The grapevine is there, too, tinged with a sophisticated rose note woven between the apple and the vine.  The scent reminds of days in the orchid growing up out in the country, the land rich and verdant, singing with life.
  • Wet: Crisp, green, delicious! I’m not getting much else aside from the apple and grapevine, although perhaps there’s a touch of hemp upon third sniff. The rose is very faint on my skin, but I don’t care too much since the apple note is just heaven.
  • Dry: After several hours and a jaunt in the woods, I’m left with grapevine, very tart apple, and a touch of cedar.  It’s much more green than it was and I do wish the rose had more staying power.

Other Impressions:  “It smells like rose, apricot, and satsuma?” – Tony
