Scent Name: Overlooking the Garden

Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Yule 2018: Lilith’s Winter Travelogue – Yuletide with Lilith

Scent Description and Notes: “While we were at Versailles, there was a bomb threat on the premises, and we were unable to see the garden due to the evacuation. It’s difficult to convey how challenging and heartbreaking it has been to explain things like this to Lilith, from shooter drills at school to bomb threats in palaces. We live in difficult times.

A perfume of hope for a brighter tomorrow: sun-dappled amber, yesterday’s rain, and fresh-cut grass. -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/in-memoriam/liliths/liliths-winter-travelogue/overlooking-the-garden-perfume-oil/

Oil Color: Colorless.

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 an image of the label art like below:


  • ITI: Hmm, this smells like the “fresh rain” scented bathroom sprays in the bottle.  There’s a bit more cut grass to it, but I’m a little weary of the scent at this stage. 
  • Wet: It’s better on the skin, thankfully.  It still reminds me of a bathroom spray, but a nice one, with clear tones of fresh rain and trodden grass.  There is no amber to be found on my skin yet, sadly.
  • Dry: Ah ha, now here’s the amber, warm, radiant, and almost vanilla’d with a hint of grass and rain underneath.  Honestly, it’s amber dominant at this point, and I love it!

Other Impressions: “It smells like vanilla and spice with a little citrus, but I can’t pick out what kind.” -Tony
