Scent Name: Utter Sophistication
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Lilith: Fatherhood 2019
Scent Description and Notes: “Lilith, Beth, and I love the theater and have attended quite a few shows. As all seasoned theater-goers know, it is proper theater etiquette to always behave in a dignified and courteous manner. I believe that we have achieved that. I love my proper, classy daughter to pieces.
Dorian and lavender with beeswax rosin, polished oak, vanilla husk, a couple of stray popcorn kernels, and a dollop of Snake Oil.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/autumn-collection/lilith-2019/fatherhood-2019/utter-sophistication-perfume-oil/
Oil Color: Colorless on my skin.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 5ml BPAL brown apothecary bottle. The label wrapped around the bottle features the name of the scent in large shadowed block, white letters along the top of the bottle, while the name of the company is at the bottom in smaller white block font. The name of the collection and year are situated just about the company name in an electric blue color. The label art is as follows:
- ITB: Okay, that is…interesting. Immediately, the image of warm caramel popcorn balls dances to mind before Dorian and Snake oil douse themselves all over with thick vanilla and beeswax rosin. This is much more foody than anticipated. Hopefully, the sweetness will calm down after application.
- Wet: It’s exactly the same on my skin – warm popcorn balls cloying in their sweetness, vanilla fluff and sugared tea, spices, and rosin.
- Dry: Three hours later, the scent has shifted considerably. Now that the lights have lowered in the house and the curtain drawn, this scent suddenly shift from the raucous patron to the sophisticated connoisseur enrobed in a polished oak fougere, studded with rosin and spiced softly.
Other Impressions: “Smells like a musky baby powder.” -Tony
