Scent Name: The Wild Audacity of My Perfect Triumph
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Halloweenies 2017: The Tell-Tale Heart
Scent Description and Notes: “I smiled, — for what had I to fear? I bade the gentlemen welcome. The shriek, I said, was my own in a dream. The old man, I mentioned, was absent in the country. I took my visitors all over the house. I bade them search — search well. I led them, at length, to his chamber. I showed them his treasures, secure, undisturbed. In the enthusiasm of my confidence, I brought chairs into the room, and desired them here to rest from their fatigues, while I myself, in the wild audacity of my perfect triumph, placed my own seat upon the very spot beneath which reposed the corpse of the victim.
A jubilant and deranged lime absinthe.”-https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/limited-edition/weenies-2017/the-wild-audacity-of-my-perfect-triumph/
Oil Color: Clear.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a decant which features the scent information on back and the image that would be on the bottle on front. The label art is as featured:
- ITI: Oh, it smells like lime rind and fizzy champagne. While I’m not getting absinthe in its entirety, the effervescent nature the note lends to the scent makes me feel like I’m celebrating New Years with the best vodka, lime, and soda water drink possible.
- Wet: It stays pretty true to form on my skin – uplifting zesty lime with a hint of fizzy adult beverage. The darker green notes of the absinthe begin to develop as it settles on my skin, not not enough to take away from the effervescent and fun impression I have when smelling it.
- Dry: I had to reapply this one after some cooking as the smell had all but dissipated. On second dry-down, The scent reminds me of a perfume-y version of watered down lime essence with a bit of tonic water underneath. It’s nice, but it doesn’t last on my skin.
Other Impressions: None.
