Oil Color: A slightly greened dandelion yellow colored oil.

Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz).  This is a sample from Mystery213.  The label features the name of the company and the name of the scent.  I can’t seem to find the original label art anymore.

Scent:

  • ITI: Drying moss casts a slightly bitter, almost dew-touched spell over the scent, while dim outlines of distant pear and a hint of fading white incense are teased though the mossy canopy.
  • Wet: It’s much the same on my skin, moss heavy with tones of damp soapiness just over skeletal white incense and a hint of pear.  As it starts to settle (30 seconds in), I think I’m picking up a shadow of pale rose through the mist.  So far, the scene reminds me of early mornings in the south just before dawn – cool, lonesome but serene, and ever so slightly gloomy.
  • Dry: Paper.  It smells like dewy paper with a very subdued rose powder.  It’s not what I was expecting.  Hmm, swap pile you go.

Other: “No lie, it smells like how my great aunt’s used to smell.  It’s very comforting, but it’s like an older, kind lady.  Whoa, it’s way more soapy fresh.  A lot stronger fresh.” -Tony
