Scent Name: Kitten with Shamisen Daydreams of a Phallus Palanquin
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Lupercalia 2017: Shunga – Novel Ideas for Secret Amusements
Scent Description and Notes: “Rice milk, white musk, and pear.” -BPAL.org
Oil Color: The color of virgin olive oil.
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 the following:
- ITI: Musky rice milk and pears reminds me of some kind of candy, possibly like those rabbit milk candies that one can find at stores like Uwajimaya. The pear note strikes me as more artificial than juicy pear or even pear skin.
- Wet: Thankfully, once applied, the pear note takes on a hint of pear flesh undertone, but coupled with the sweet rice milk and musk, still reminds me of candy for the first minute or two.
- Dry: As it starts to settle, the rice milk warms, adding a creamy smooth almost shea butter tone to the scent that keeps me re-sniffing my skin. This scent has some wonderful longevity, too. After 10 hours, I’m still getting nearly 2″ of throw of an alluring creamy rice milk skin musk with a touch of vague sweetness. Gorgeous!
Other Impressions: This would make a really lovely lotion.
“It’s like a very sexy Jordan Almond.” -Tony
