Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Lupercalia 2019: Shunga –

Scent Description and Notes: White sandalwood, champaca, snow mint, and thyme.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/winter-collection/lupercalia-2019/novel-ideas-for-secret-amusements-2019/wet-fingers-perfume-oil/

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 painting of a partially kimono robed couple engaged in coitus.  The main seems to be licking his gingers during this act.

  • ITI: Champaca, snow and a bright mint swirl over sandalwood and thyme.  This is pleasantly cool and refreshing while still having enough resiny warmth to make it smell like a cool dusk in mid spring.
  • Wet: The snow mint is now the dominant combination  once applied, although the thyme is more noticeable in this stage. The champaca swells on my skin after a few minutes like the reassuring warming of a lover’s touch.
  • Dry:  Soft champaca and mellow sandalwood with a subtle sliver of thyme linger on my skin 8 hours after application.  It still even has a little bit of throw!

Other Impressions: None.
