Scent Name:  Infernal Creatures

Manufacturer:  Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab –  Retail Exclusive: Century Guild Kickstarter – Infernal Creatures

Scent Description and Notes: “A viscous splash of red musk, opium smoke, calla lilies, black orchids, clove husk, and brimstone.” -BPAL.org

Oil Color: A thin mandarin oil.

Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a 5ml standard brown apothecary bottle.  The label extends just under halfway around the bottom.  The label features the name of the company in thin very pale blue font that feels a little run together.  The name of the collection is just above that in more generous spacing, done up in a beautiful sky blue.  The image art is as follows:

Scent:

  • ITB:  Opium smoke curls its tendrils around black orchid, which withers slightly under the sooty brimstone.  I’m trying to find the clove husk or the musk, and other than maybe an outline of the musk, but I’m not having much luck.
  • Wet: Oh, that’s much stronger.  Red musk, brimstone, and clove burst forth in a cloud of opium smoke. The florals linger just under the flurry of infernal notes, like a smoke bomb before the appearance of a devastatingly handsome creature.
  • Dry: I’m surprised at how quickly this settles down. While the clove husk, brimstone, and musk are still forward, it’s no longer an aggressive cloud, but a mellow low-lying fog atop which the opium and florals lazily waft. Feminine, beautiful, and infernal.

Other Impressions: “It’s a little powdery and flowery.  It’s a general nice, pleasant floweriness.” -Tony
