Scent Description and Notes: “Golden amber and lotus blossom, cherry blossom and white teak, mallow root and wildflower honey.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/winter-collection/lupercalia-2019/novel-ideas-for-secret-amusements-2019/elegant-vulvas-perfume-oil/
Oil Color: The color an apricot Jolly Rancher.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 1/32 ml imp that has been decanted for me by Absinthetics. Her label features the scent notes on the back along with her decanting information and the scent name. The label art is a shunga woodblock print of two vulvas.
- ITI: It smells like vanilla mallow laced with amber, cherry blossoms. There’s a sliver of teak that vanishes when I try to pin it down and a thread of dustiness, too.
- Wet: Amber mallow and gobs of wildflower honey drizzled over light teak jump forth from the wrist. The scent borders on cloying at this stage for me.
- Dry: Now that’s nice. Teak perfumed with amber infused with floral honey and the sublime, delicate beauty of cherry blossoms lingers just under underneath. For something that was applied over 8 hours ago, this scent still has throw and is lovely and distinct.
Other Impressions: “I don’t really smell much.” -Tony
