Scent Description and Notes: “DRAGON SIDE-EYE
Golden peach and black oudh with lychee, auburn musk, and Italian bergamot.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.tumblr.com/post/164565732458/dragon-drop-the-con-collection-is-coming-eight
Oil Color: Colorless on my skin.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard brown apothecary bottle. The label wrapped around the bottle features the phrase “Dragon Marginalia” in small white shadowed block font along the top of the image. The company name is located along in the bottom of the label in similar black block font, while the scent name above that is centered in larger shadowed white block font. The original label art is as follows:
- ITB: Oooh, I’m worried about that black oudh note. I think I bought this before I realized that black oudh tends to smell like cat poo on in the sun on me. I’m praying that sweet lychee and peach balance this bad boy out. Oh yeesh, that smells like old, used kitty litter boxes sweetened with lychee. *Cries in perfume*.
- Wet: Lychees and lychee juice sweetened with slivers of ripe peaches and threaded with musky bergamot is wonderful…yet the black oudh looms underneath, casting up images of manured soil and kitty litter, yet not enough to run to loveliness of the fruit top notes. I’m conflicted, though.
- Dry: After only 5 minutes of dry-time the black oudh embraces its darker self by dragging in ammonia-heavy urine to my lovely fruity top notes. An hour later, the oudh has mellowed out somewhat, so it’s more of a fruit and compost musk. Nope.
Other Impressions: “Like fruit butt, but not in a good way. Like Fruit Punch and actual ass.” -Tony
