Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). The label wrapped around the bottle features an Art-Deco inspired phoenix with name of the company next to the phoenix. On the other side, the title of the scent written in large, clear black font outlined with red on the front.
- ITI: Dry earth patchouli is the main impression I am getting right out of the bottle. The earthiness is almost brittle and vegetal in tone. The apricot breezes in briefly, a moment of recognition, before it vanishes under the strength of the patchouli note.
- Wet: Now the patchouli speaks of the earthiness of which I’m familiar, dark, soil-laden, round, sweetened with apricot flesh and it’s less ripe meat. The scent feels striated to me, the soft fruit hovering at the top while the dark earthiness looms underneath, just waiting to suck the life from the sweetness.
- Dry: After a two hour walk, the patchouli has taken on a pleasing almost honeyed sweetness to its earthiness with a faint after-smell of apricot. This is much once it has had a chance to warm on the skin.
Other Impressions: None.
