Scent Name: Die Nacht
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Halloween 2016: The Spirit of Halloween
Scent Description and Notes: “Askel Waldemar Johannessen
A haze of verbena, lemon rind, transparent amber, ectoplasmic green musk, ti leaf, and bamboo.” -BPAL.org
Oil Color: A soft champagne colored oil.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 1/32 ml imp that has been decanted for me by Mystery213. Her label features her decanting information and the scent name on the front and the company name on the back. There is no label art on this decant.
- ITI: I get lemon verbena, bits of lemon rind, a subtle undertone of green musk just underneath. I can’t tell if there’s ti leaf or bamboo yet, but there’s something that feels grounded about this scent that’s rather appealing.
- Wet: This is a really lovely soft verbena-forward scent. I’m still getting much the same in the bottle, but there’s definitely the impression of a soft green woodiness that helps settle the verbena and lemon rind from high citrus to refreshing yet calming verbena blend. I wouldn’t say that it strikes me as a Halloweenie scent, but more like a relaxing, balanced every day scent.
- Dry: This one also fades pretty quickly, although I still am getting a subtle earthy verbena tone, which I love. I wish I had a bottle of this scent.
Other Impressions: “Like an orange and lemongrass got into a fight and it was wonderful. It’s harsh and vicious at first, but it’s really nice, really pleasant.” -Tony
