Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Halloween 2018 – Genius Loci: Bats of Los Angeles
Scent Description and Notes: “A venerable and well-respected bat, Ghost Face Bats can trace their ancestry to the late Pleistocene era.
Sugared coconut meat, vanilla pods, condensed milk, white honey, and benzoin.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/autumn-collection/halloween-2018/genius-loci-bats-of-los-angeles/ghost-faced-bat/
Oil Color: Colorless.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 1/32 ml imp that has been decanted for me by Yowahoshihime. Her label features the scent notes and her decanter information on the back. The front has the name of the scent and company name along with the label art, which is as below:
- ITI: I get warmed heavy milk (like heavy whipping cream) combined with coconut flesh, vanilla, and caramelized sugar. The benzoin is very subtle in this form, floating just along the periphery, adding a subtle resin sweetness to the otherwise foody top and middle notes.
- Wet: On my skin, it’s more coconut meat with condensed milk, a touch of honey and hints of vanilla pod in the background. It’s a rather creamy note that reminds me of some of the scents I tested for the Lab’s Lupercalia update last year.
- Dry: Husky coconut meat with dried benzoin and diffuse sugared vanilla remind me of Tropicana tanning oil for some reason.
Other Impressions: “Pumpkin spice cocoa butter.” -Tony
