I was debating what should come next as I have still about 11 bottles from the most recent Lupercalia update along with a whole host of older imps, but I think it’s time to review my DragCon scents!
Scent Name: Slay
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Event Exclusive: DragCon 2018
Scent Description and Notes: “The consummate host: she can fill oceans of time on the mic and still leave the crowd hypnotized.
Polished black patchouli and blood-red vegetal musk, bakhoor oudh, tobacco absolute, fossilized amber resin, and bittersweet cacao.” -bpal.org
Scent Note: Bakhoor oudh generally refers to the processed incense that contains oudh and other essential oils while oudh or oud refers to the raw chips or resin from the tree itself.
Oil Color: The color of sandalwood on my skin.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 5ml brown glass vial. The label features the name of the scent along the top, centered, in a bold yellow font. The company name is in the same font along the bottom. The image on the bottle is a red vampire Queen, smiling, with blood dribbling down the corner of her mouth.
- ITB: Gorgeous earthy patchouli with some sweet tobacco over red, dark musk. It should age very well.
- Wet: Once again,the patchouli is the most dominant note (although much less earthy), but now I can smell the rich cocoa that twines itself around the patchouli while tobacco and resinous incense twin around the base.
- Dry: Wow, that is lovely once dried. The tobacco just sings on my skin next to the resinous oudh and dark patchouli while the red musk and amber sweeten deliciously.
Other Impressions: None.
