Scent Description and Notes: “A citrus chypre with French lavender, yellow bergamot, and clove bud.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/in-memoriam/scraps-of-poetry/
Oil Color: Colorless.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 1/32 ml imp that has been decanted by TrailerTrashPrincess. The back of the label has the scent name, while the front has the decanter’s name, symbol, and company acronym. The label art is as follows:
- ITI: I’m met with the bright green tones from the lavender and chypre along with a touch of spiciness the the lovely clove bud that is soft but beautifully supportive up against the other notes.
- Wet: There’s a touch of spiciness here, but the lavender note takes precedence on my skin. I wish the chypre were a little clearer, but it does add some nice complexity behind the lavender.
- Dry: It’s dried down into a sophisticated lavender chypre, the citrus of which is very subtly present with a touch of bergamot. It’s definitely a nice perfume, but not something that is out of the ordinary or remarkable in terms of uniqueness.
Other Impressions: This on top of Lush’s Sleepy lotion is so much better!
