Scent Description and Notes: “A symbol of Divine Power made manifest in man, of the order of the universe being executed upon earth. It signifies the apex of glory, triumph, and immortality, and the extension of dominion: a symbol of rulership blessed by celestial providence.
Self-control that leads to self-realization: frankincense and styrax with bergamot and lemon peel.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/in-memoriam/limited-edition-in-memoriam/the-fools-journey/the-emperor/aspects-of-the-emperor/the-emperors-crown/
Oil Color: Colorless on my skin.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 5ml brown bottle from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab. The label features the name of the company in small white bold block font outlined in black along the bottom of the label. The scent name is a larger version of the same font above that. The label art is as featured below:
- ITB: Oh, that’s nice. Styrax has a pleasing medium floral and slightly industrial tone with a haze of lemon peel and frankincense. I’m not smelling a whole lot of bergamot, though.
- Wet: Immediately on the skin, it’s all styrax before the sweetness of bergamot and lemon peel tame the floral chemical gorgeousness of the top note. It reminds me of floral motor oil softened with a citrus haze resin and just a hint of incense far below.
- Dry: This didn’t pass the 14 hour work-day test, so I had to reapply. After three hours, the scent has settled into a warm frankincense styrax haze with the slightest tinge of citrus and bergamot. It stays very close to the skin on me after the first hour. It’s certainly nice, but I do wish it had better throw and longevity.
Other Impressions: I blind-bought this bottle because I loved the sytrax note in Deathrocker and I’m not disappointed in this one.
