Scent Name: Frostbitten Sin
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Yules 2017: The Snowdrift
Scent Description and Notes: None provided. Sin: “Thoroughly corrupted: amber, sandalwood, black patchouli and cinnamon.” -bpal.org
Oil Color: A faintly yellow oil on my skin.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard brown apothecary bottle. The label wrapped around the bottle features the name of the company in white bolded font along the bottom. Centered in the middle of the label is the name of the scent in larger white font. The name of the collection is in the same format as the company name along the top of the label. The label art is as featured below:
- ITB: I was expecting a brash symphony of notes, but instead I’m presently surprised with heavy snow and sandalwood, reminding me of Lush’s Snow Cake in the bottle.
- Wet: Snow notes, soft and fluffy, next to subdued sandalwood and lightly powdered amber with the ghost of ground cinnamon long past in the background yield a very interesting combination that shifts between forlorn and silent to warm, faintly spicy, and welcoming.
- Dry: It’s softer now that it’s had several hours to settle, drifting into the realm of faintly resinous snow with a touch of patchouli and dried cinnamon. I think I like this one better while wet, but it still is pleasant.
