Scent Description and Notes: “A harvest scent, bright and hopeful: hay and honey, apricot rind, white amber, apple peel, chrysanthemums, and oak. -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/halloween-autumn-collection/songs-of-autumn-2019/songs-of-autumn-iv-perfume-oil/

Oil Color: The color of dilute white wine.

Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a decant from Yowahoshihime.  On the back, she has the notes of the scent and her decanting name. The front of the label has the phrase “Weenies 2019.”  The label art on the bottle is as follows:


  • ITI: I was anticipating a more fruit-forward scent, but I’m suprised that the hay note is the most assertive right from the pink, followed by oak, dried apple peel, chrysanthemum and a dash of autumnal amber.  This reminds me of frolicking through the countryside hay fields, wind perfumed with distant autumnal harvests.
  • Wet: The oak is stronger now than the rest and it has a singed, almost vetiver-like tone to it that I didn’t notice in the imp.  They hay is still there, slightly damp, while the peel and chrysanthemum notes hover underneath with the amber, a suggestion of the sweet delights of late fall.
  • Dry: 8 hours into the dry-down the scent smells of warm hay touched with vetiver and dry oak rouged softly with amber musk.

Other Impressions: None.
