I just received this in a swap and I’m rather eager to try it.
Scent Name: Djinn
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Diabolus
Scent Description and Notes: “An ancient, free-willed race created from the essence of Fire, much as man was created from Earth. They prowled the land at night, vanishing with the first rays of dawn. Myths surrounding the Djinn paint them as many things: benevolent champions of mankind and slaves to mad sorcerers, malicious incubi / succubi and energy vampires, or malevolent harbingers of madness and disease. The Djinn are ruled by Iblis, the Prince of Darkness, who bears unspeakable contempt for man. The scent of black smoke, of crackling flames, and smoldering ashes.” – BPAL
Oil Color: A copper color.
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 the the name of the company at the bottle of the image. On the other side, the title of the scent written in large, clear black font outlined with red on the front.
- In the Imp (ITI): As I inhale, I get an interesting combination of sweet, incense-like smoke with smoky (like over charcoal) flames. I also get a touch of menthol, which is interesting since it is not in the scent notes.
- Wet: I’m still getting strong menthol (or benzoin) and smoky incense. I don’t get the ashy or charcoal scent anymore. Even with it, I still like this combination. It’s unusual and reminds me of winters lounging around a wood-burning fireplace.
- Dry: The dried scent dissipates very quickly. There is the faintest hint of incense-laden smoke. I’m sad it doesn’t last beyond 3-4 hours before I need to reapply.
