Scent Name: The Storm
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Lilith 2018
Scent Description and Notes: “On a ship at sea: a tempestuous noise.
An electric blackberry violet tossed with seaspray.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/autumn-collection/lilith-2018/the-storm/
Oil Color: Colorless.
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: Salt-crusted soapy blackberry with purple floral strewn about. It reminds me of those berried bushes one finds just off the shores. I was fearing this as aquatics tend not to agree with me, but the salt isn’t too bad. The soapy berry is the note that I hope moves into a more natural direction once applied to skin.
- Wet: Well, then. On my skin, the berry changes from soapy to blackberry slushy. There is a sophisticated floral element and colors the berry note some. I’m only getting a touch of seaspray, like the salt on the skin, which is actually enjoyable paired with these notes.
- Dry: After three hours, my skin has seemingly eaten the complexities of most of the other notes. What I’m left with is a slightly blue, more perfumed sea salt. I wish the other notes had more staying power on my skin, but alas.
Other Impressions: None.
