Scent Name: Chiroptophobia
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Weenies 2017: Samhainophobia
Scent Description and Notes: “Fear of Bats
A flutter of leather becomes a swarm of buffeting musks, tangled with a white flash of sandalwood and near-inaudible shrieks of eucalyptus and elemi.” –https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/limited-edition/weenies-2017/chiroptophobia/
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:
Scent: The color of dilluted honey.
- ITI: Wow, this is fairly herbal in the bottle, which must be from the eucalyptus, but I’m also getting some greenish wood notes and some resins, which must be the sandalwood and the elemi.
- Wet: Yum! This smells like a whirlwind of fuzzy brown musk, supple leather and a generous dollop of white sandalwood all spun together with a subtle touch of green elemi and eucalyptus that adds more wonderful depth to the scent.
- Dry: Sadly, my skin seems to eat this up (although that won’t stop me from applying more later). What’s left after 6 hours is very faint musk and sandalwood. It’s still wonderfully pleasant overall and well worth a bottle.
