Scent Name: Krikophobia
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Yule 2017: Phobias
Scent Description and Notes: “Fear of Religious Services.
Sour wine drying on an ancient ciborium, crumbling pages of a yellowed sacramentary, blinding glints of bitter white sunlight shattering off a tarnished monstrance, and doleful voices droning through a haze of oppressive, smothering incense.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/limited-edition/yule-2017/krikophobia/
Oil Color: The color of apricot
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a decanted imp. It features the collection name and notes on the back of the label and a copy of the label art on front:
- ITI: Dang it, wine! I get sour wine splashed against mental with a touch of incense wafting around it. It’s not the worse wine scent I’ve smelled, but wine is not the greatest note on my skin.
- Wet: Ugh, super sour wine with resin and a touch of tarnish. Not great, honestly.
- Dry: The wine settles much better than anticipated, I think tempered by the book or paper note, which allows the resin to shine a little bit more from underneath wine’s presence than when wet.I’m not getting any tarnished metal notes, but I think I am okay with that.
