Dang it! There’s a honey note I spy. I think I bought this one before I found out that honey doesn’t play nicely on my skin. Let’s home that this is one of those rare cases that does.
Scent Name: Visions of Autumn III
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Halloweenie 2014: Visions of Autumn
Scent Description and Notes: “Bourbon vanilla, aged patchouli, honey, and Ceylon cinnamon.” -bpal.org
Oil Color: Colorless.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a decanted imp. It features the scent notes on the back. The front of the label displays the collection name, scent name, and date, displayed in order to frame the label art:
- ITI: It reminds me of a softly sweet Hot Toddy infused with vanilla. I like it, but let’s see how it shifts on my skin.
- Wet: What is this sorcery? Honey that smells like honey dusting powder and not some potent reminder of the men’s bathroom? No! It’s a delightfully soft honey, speckled with vanilla, very subtle patchouli and just a hint of cinnamon, but not enough to burn the nose. Wow, this is lovely, even on my skin.
- Dry: After 10 hours, I’m left with light honey dust and a gentle hint of vanilla. This is a pleasantry surprising scent, even for someone whose skin doesn’t usually play nicely with honey.
