Scent Name: The Moon’s My Own
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Yule 2019
Scent Description and Notes: ”
Miles of frost –
On the lake
The moon’s my own
– Yosa Buson
A crescent glow of mugwort, white musk, lemon peel, and moonflower reflecting on a frost-limned lake.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/yule-2019/the-moons-my-own-perfume-oil/
Oil Color: Colorless.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a decant from Yowahoshihime. On the back, she has the notes of the scent and her decanting name. The front of the label has the phrase “Yules 2019.” The label art on the bottle is as follows:
- ITI: Hmm, this is much more herbal than I had anticipated, almost medicinal, but pleasantly so. I’m getting limed mugwort, mugwort being the heart here, followed by dried lemon peel, something that reminds me of cold white tea, and a faded drop of the lab’s sweet frost note.
- Wet: It’s very light on the skin, so much so that I had to re-examine my placement to make sure I was smelling the perfume. After a few seconds, the coldness of limed mugwort emerges hand-in-hand with the lemon-infused frost note. There’s a hint of a white floral far in the distance, adding a sense of beauty to the mix.
- Dry: It’s definitely a chilly citrus after two minutes. I like this iteration much more! After 5 hours, only a white floral musk lingers very close to the skin. It’s a pity that it’s so short lived.
Other Impressions: None.
