Scent Name: Lycanthrope for your Life
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Event Exclusive: DragCon 2018
Scent Description and Notes: “She’s that Instagram queen who only performs once in a full moon. Cardamom-infused whiskey and fig cream.“-bpal.org
Oil Color: Colorless 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 green font. The company name is in the same font along the bottom. The image is of a shaggy, wolfish queen with a purple swooping hairstyle. She’s wearing crescent moon earrings and a gold chain around her neck.
- ITB: Lycanthrope smells like shaggy musk, spiced cardamom whisky, and a light sweetness that is too diffuse to pick out as cream or fig.
- Wet: Sharp cardamom and strong whisky with what smells liek a dash of pepper thrown in dance about my wrist. After a few seconds, the fig inserts itself between the whisky and the cardamom, although I wish the cream note were present as this needs it.
- Dry: After 6 hours, the scent has settled into an absolutely lovely version of a musky cream with a subtle hint of spiced whisky. It’s much more sophisticated and much less foody after it has had a chance to settle. This one is definitely worth the dry-down.
Other Impressions: None.
