Scent Name: I Too Beneath Your Moon
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Lupercalia 2017
Scent Description and Notes: “
I too beneath your moon, almighty Sex,
Go forth at nightfall crying like a cat,
Leaving the lofty tower I laboured at
For birds to foul and boys and girls to vex
– Edna St. Vincent Millay
Vanilla cream, white patchouli, French lavender, bergamot, and apple.” –https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/limited-edition/lupercalia-2017/i-too-beneath-your-moon/
Oil Color: The color of apricots.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a sample from Jenn Nevaril, which has the bottle image on the front, the name of the scent and date hand written on the back above the typed company acronym and decanting information. The label art that would be on the bottle is as featured:

- ITI: Ooh, gorgeous crunchy red apple notes are trust forward by the astringent but lovely lavender, while the cream mingles between the two, dampening the overbearing edges of both top notes.
- Wet: The apple is a bit softer, although still crisp and red, while the patchouli and lavender blend very well together just aside the apple note. I can pick up very light bergamot and vanilla cream, a vapor amongst the stronger notes.
- Dry: It’s soft, sweet vanilla cream that lingers most clearly on my skin, although the white patchouli adds a touch of resinous depth while the lavender (minimal, but still detectable) brightens the patchouli. The impression of apple lingers as the final note far, far along the bottom of the dried scent.
Other Impressions: “Oooh, that’s really nice.” -Tony
