Scent Name: One Perfect Day
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Lupercalia 2018
Scent Description and Notes: “You did not need to creep into my heart
The way you did. You could have smiled
And knowing what you did, you have kept apart
From all my inner soul. But you beguiled
Honeyed tea rose, lavender water, red benzoin, bois de rose, and rose amber.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/in-memoriam/one-perfect-day/
Oil Color: Colorless on my skin.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard brown apothecary bottle. The label wrapped around the bottle features the name of the company in bolded white block font shadowed in black along the bottom. Above that is the name of the scent in in a larger tea-rose pink color. The name of the collection is in the same size and type of font as the company’s name. The label art is as featured below:
- ITB: A wonderfully lady-like bouquet of soft roses, the bright tea rose of which just is absolutely delightful, clear, and present in the bottle. The red benzoin and amber compliment the varied rose tones, and the faint watery lavender adds an air of poise to the scent as a whole.
- Wet: Tea rose and the more earnest bois de rose dusting powder, sprinkled with honey, benzoin, and a hint of watery essence delights my rose. It’s so beautifully feminine without being overbearing in terms of its floral tones.
- Dry: While subdued, this scent lasted throughout my work day – a beautifully proper tea rose warmed by amber and benzoin delighted me throughout.
Other Impressions: None.
