Scent Name: Honeysuckle & Patchouli
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Duets: A Little Lunacy 2019
Scent Description and Notes: “A strangely intoxicating autumn scent.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/in-memoriam/a-little-lunacy/duets/honeysuckle-and-patchouli-perfume-oil/
Oil Color: Colorless on my skin.
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 ombre shadowed cool pink font along the bottom. The name of the scent is positioned above that in a larger honeysuckle yellow version of the same font shadowed along its borders. Image art is as follows:
- ITB: Bright, almost lemon yellow honeysuckle sings. It reminds me of a lemon chiffon-colored silk dress – a beautiful statement to be sure.
- Wet: Very bright and forward honeysuckle – lemony yellow and white petals clearly come to mind. I’m not getting much patchouli other than a very light spice that is sugared over by the floral’s pollen.
- Dry: It’s all honeysuckle all the time. Sadly, I don’t get much patchouli beyond a vague spice that fades under the honeysuckle’s insistence over the course of its wear.
Other Impressions: “It’s like lemongrass and honeydew got into a fight, verbena as referee.” -Tony
