Scent Name: Lovers and a Fan
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Lupercalia 2015: Shunga – Novel Ideas for Secret Amusements
Scent Description and Notes: “White coconut, thick wildflower honey, and threads of saffron.” -BPAL.org
Oil Color: Colorless.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 1/32 ml imp that has been decanted for me by Absinthetics. Her label features the scent notes on the back along with her decanting information and the scent name. The label art is a woodblock print of two nude individuals making love on blankets while fanning their loins with what looks like a tortoise shell fan.
- ITI: I think this one might have gone off. It smells like coconut pencil shavings in the imp. It smells a little bit like lipstick that is on its way to rancid but might have a couple months left.
- Wet: The coconut is a little sweeter on my skin, but coconut flakes to my nose as opposed to sunscreen, with a hint of saffron and pencil shavings. There’s a hint of honey far of, but it’s more honey butter than the golden liquid.
- Dry: Well, the honey has warmed on my skin, settling over the coconut, but I’m still convinced there’s pencil shaving essence in here. Not a fan.
Other Impressions: “It can’t pick up anything specifically, but it reminds me of eating pumpkin spice muffins in a flower shop.” -Tony
