Oil Color: A yellowish 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 ombre font along the bottom. Above that is the name of the scent in larger white outlined white font. The label art is as featured below:
- ITB: This skews much more like perfume than I anticipated, thanks in part to the heavily sweet red musk and stately oudh. The teakwood sits just underneath, followed by something that reminds me of cool, damp stone speckled with plum skin. It’s a hard one to articulate, but certainly refreshingly unusual.
- Wet: Damp stone slowly drying in the dappled sun, oudh, and a red, bodily musk followed by the faint warmness of teak. There’s still something that makes me think of plums or another husky fruit in here.
- Dry: Red, musky oudh splashed over concrete while sweet teakwood wafts gentle underneath. Even after 6 hours, the notes are distinct. This is a rather pleasant scent. I’m glad I took a chance on it.
Other Impressions: None.
