Scent Name: Mexican Long-Tongued Bat
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Halloween 2018 – Genius Loci: Bats of Los Angeles
Scent Description and Notes: “The Gene Simmons of the Phyllostomidae family, this little buddy has a tongue built for harvesting nectar, extending up to a third of its body length and covered in hairy and horny papillae.
Smoked chili peppers, caramelized saffron, and clove bud.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/product-category/autumn-collection/halloween-2018/genius-loci-bats-of-los-angeles/
Oil Color: The color of amber shocked with dragon’s blood resin.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 1/32 ml imp that has been decanted for me by Yowahoshihime. Her label features the scent notes and her decanter information on the back. The front has the name of the scent and company name along with the label art, which is as below:
- ITI: Candied chili peppers, laced with strong clove and a soothing tone of saffron under the hot and spicy notes. It reminds me of these Ghost Pepper I used to get from a FusionSweets on Etsy.
- Wet: I’m still getting wonderfully spicy chili peppers, dusky clove, very light saffron, and something that reminds me of fiery caramel. It makes my mouth water, which is saying something for someone who dislikes most foody scents. As it settles, the clove begins to amp and goes slightly “pumpkin spice” with hints of browned butter under strong smoked chili peppers.
- Dry: It smells like brown sugar caramel with a hit of dusky clove and chili. It makes my mouth water. I actually enjoy this, even though I’m not a foody.
Other Impressions: “Why are you wearing caramel butter popcorn?” -Tony
