Scent Name: Covfefe
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Activism: I Know Words, I Have The Best Words
Scent Description and Notes: “Is it abstract nonsense poetry? Surrealist performance art? Cryptography so subtle and devious that it would make an Enigma machine blush? The verbal component of whatever spell that orb casts? Safe word? A typo fueled by cheap hooch, NoDoz, and poor impulse control? Is negative press covfefe anything like French press covfefe?
This perfume makes no fucking sense: orange marshmallow cream, bitter lemon, black pepper, orange carnation, and gin.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/limited-edition/covfefe/
Oil Color: A faint orange wash on my skin.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard BPAL brown apothecary bottle. The label wrapped around the bottle features the name of the scent in bold, black letters set just above the name of the company along the bottom of the label, which is in a smaller version of the font. The image is of a Twitter bird with 3 swords through it.
- ITI: At first, it smells like an orange cream-sickle followed by popcorn Jellybelly jelly beans and pepper. While it sounds like a discordant blend, it actually isn’t too bad as one note seems to slide seamlessly into the next.
- Wet: The pepper and gin notes are clearer once applied, but they still exist on the same plane as the orange marshmallow cream note. The carnation is there, but it’s buried under the other notes that push it out of the way, just like Trump did with the prime minister of Montenegro.
- Dry: Soft, dry orange cream notes with bits of lemon zest, a spritz of gin, and the memory of pepper adorn my skin now that the scent is dry. I certainly enjoy it much more now that it’s hand a change to dry down.
Other Impressions: “Wow, that makes…no sense. I suppose that’s the point. It smells almost like it has apple in it. It’s not sweet apple, but not sour apple either. I’m starting to smell a lot more orange as it dries.” -Kelly
