I ordered a few more of the scents from the Travelogue collection, so I thought I’d review them while they are still able to be purchased, just in case.
Scent Name: Carry Me
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Trading Post – Yule 2018: Lilith’s Winter Travelogue – Yuletide with Lilith
Scent Description and Notes: “Carrying Lilith on my shoulders has become an inside joke for us. She will say “Carry me!”, and I will say “Boy, are you lazy!” – and her response is always, “It’s your fault because you carry me all the time.”
I have carried her on my shoulders through Atlanta, Chicago, New Orleans, Portland, Seattle, New York, DC, Baltimore, San Francisco, San Diego, Las Vegas, Palm Springs, Yosemite, Mammoth, New York, London, Paris, Berlin, Salzburg, Frankfurt, Mexico City, Havana… I have carried her for her whole life, and I will carry her for as long as I am able.
When my shoulders cannot carry her anymore, my heart still will.
Vanilla cookies and a splash of lavender fougere.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/winter-collection/liliths-winter-travelogue/yuletide-with-lilith/carry-me-perfume-oil/
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: Lavender sprinkled atop soft, freshly-baked vanilla cookies makes my mouth water. The lavender shifts back and forth from candied to herbaceous while a throaty sense of the fougere lingers just out of reach. This is promising, which says a good deal since I am generally not a gourmand scent lover.
- Wet: Mmmm, vanilla-lavender frosted sugar cookies! The lovely herbal quality of the lavender, enhanced by a subtle fougere catapults this scent into the nostalgically thoughtful realm for me. The silage is close to the skin and the scent itself is gentle, pleasantly sweet, and comforting.
- Dry: Pleasantry, this dries down into a light sugared cookie lavender musk. While it stays close to the skin, I’m happy that I can still detect it after 6 hours.
Other Impressions: None.
