Scent Name: The Dead Can Hear & The Dead Have Sight

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Halloween 2016: Edith Wharton

Scent Description and Notes: A thin moon faints in the sky o’erhead,
And dumb in the churchyard lie the dead.
Walk we not, Sweet, by garden ways,
Where the late rose hangs and the phlox delays,
But forth of the gate and down the road,
Past the church and the yews, to their dim abode.
For it’s turn of the year and All Souls’ night,
When the dead can hear and the dead have sight.

Twisted creepers of dying ivy, winter roses, shadow musk, and black moss.” -BPAL.org

Oil Color: The color of aged mirin.

Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 1/32 ml imp that has been decanted for me by Mystery213. Her label features her decanting information and the scent name on the front and the company name on the back. There is no label art on this decant, but the image art on the bottle is as follows:


  • ITI: Strong English ivy, shadowed and cool, rules the scent. There’s a slight tone to dark musk, but I don’t smell any winter roses at all. 
  • Wet: I applied this first without smelling it in the imp.  Immediately, I thought of fallen leaves and English ivy
  • Dry: After 5 hours, the scent is a bit warmer due to the musk, but I am still getting the impression of shadowed English ivy with a hint of moss.

Other Impressions: None.
