Scent Name: Astronomical Twilight
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Who Can Fight Against Despair
Scent Description and Notes: “A scent of the silence before absolute doom, or the quiet sigh exhaled on the edge of hope: black plum, lavender, narcissus, night-blooming jasmine, lemon peel, labdanum, and white moss.“-https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/limited-edition/who-can-fight-against-dispair/astronomical-twilight-perfume-oil/
Oil Color: A polished oak colored oil.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a 1/32 imp decant. The decant was made by Ralenth, who has the name of the scent in large font on the front of the label, the name of the company and date of the collection along with a corresponding found image on the front. Image art is as follows:
- ITI: What a cool floral hanging onto the fading warmth of labdanum-laced lavender! It’s round, herbal, yet softly perfumed with the narcissus, gentle night-blooming jasmine, and white moss. I’m not picking up a whole lot of plum or lemon at this point, but what is here is wonderfully calming.
- Wet: Much more herbal and strongly floral, especially with the jasmine and narcissus. The lemon peel is clearer once applied, tumbled with dark Italian plum flesh, but these seem to walk hand and hand together with the night-blooming florals, a purple procession into inky night.
- Dry: After 8 hours, all that’s left is a chilly floral exhalation and the faintest impression of citrus.
Other Impressions: “It’s rose-y and carnation-y bit really dark, almost resinous, and kind of like a dark library with a bit of that mustiness and still air. It’s not bad. I don’t dislike it. It’s nice.” -Tony
