Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard brown apothecary bottle. The label wrapped around the bottle features the name of the company in white bolded font along the bottom. Centered in the middle of the label is the name of the scent in larger white font. The name of the collection is in the same format as the company name along the top of the label. The label art is as featured below:
- ITB: I immediately get fiery red blood amber erupting forth, but it almost immediately is quenched by the silvery powdered snow note with a subtle aroma of velvety rose petals. This isn’t what I had expected, but I’m still eager to wear this.
- Wet: Dragon’s blood swirled with amber, soft and gently resinous, dusted over with powdery snow and snowdrop florals.
- Dry: Hmm, the dry-down is a bit problematic on my skin. It reminds me of screeching white florals, the kind that used to be present in mid 90s car air fresheners, with a powdery snow note and a hint of resin underneath. I’m not sure if it’s the dragon’s blood that is acting out, or if it’s just the blend. It isn’t terrible, but it just isn’t something that I’d reach for.
