Scent Description and Notes: “Amber cream, white tea, lemon peel, and lotus root.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/winter-collection/lupercalia-2019/novel-ideas-for-secret-amusements-2019/humorous-copulation-perfume-oil/
Oil Color: Colorless.
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 four individuals with humorously enlarged genitalia. One man is supporting a woman on his member like she flying. One woman looks like she’s running away while the gentleman below her looks perplexed at his comically enlarged phallus.
- ITI: That’s pleasant. I’m getting white tea and lemon peel as the top notes, while the amber cream and lotus notes (lotus reads as bubblegum to me) blink in and out of detection.
- Wet: The sweet lotus is more discernible on my skin, rising up to meet the soft white tea and delicious lemon peel note. The amber cream adds gauziness from the scent, which keeps the other notes from being too bright or too abrasive. It reminds me of a subdued tea party, room flooded with sunshine in the early spring.
- Dry: Warm, brilliant amber cream sweetened with sugared lotus root and a faintly floral lemon curd. Lovely.
Other Impressions: “Freeze-dried raspberries, oranges…and pretzels? There’s something shiny baked about it.” -Tony
