Scent Name: Visions of Autumn I
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Halloweenie 2014: Visions of Autumn
Scent Description and Notes: “White cedar, black pepper, golden amber, bay leaf, and 4-year aged oudh.” -BPAL.org
Oil Color: A beautiful saffron colored oil.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 1/32 ml imp that has been decanted for me by Ralenth. Her label features her decanting information, collection name, date, and the scent name on the front. The back of her label features the scent notes. The image art that was on the bottle is similar to this one below, but features the correct Roman numeral for the name.
- ITI: That’s…interesting. I am getting golden amber, but it’s muddled with bay leaf and oudh, which gives it almost a musky body undertone.
- Wet: I’m still getting that body smelling oudh with bay. After 10 seconds, the cool cedar slinks forth swathed in the gentle aroma of amber. Thankfully, that body smell is fading under the last two notes, so there is hope for this scent yet!
- Dry: I had to retest this one since the scent had vanished by my 8 hour check-in. Even two hours after second application, the scent quickly dissipates. All that’s left is a very faint bay pepper note that I have to strain to detect.
Other Impressions: None.
