Scent Name: The Marquis de Carabas
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Neil Gaiman: Neverwhere
Scent Description and Notes: “THE MARQUIS de CARABAS
He wore a huge dandyish black coat that was not quite a frock coat nor exactly a trench coat, and high black boots, and, beneath his coat, raggedy clothes. His eyes burned white in an extremely dark face. And he grinned white teeth, momentarily, as if at a private joke of his own, and bowed to Richard, and said, “De Carabas, at your service, and you are…?”
A splash of bay rum, leather, dusty black wool, massoia bark, and opium residue.“ -BPAL.org
Oil Color: I cannot tell from the brown apothecary bottle.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a 5ml standard brown apothecary bottle. The label extends just under halfway around the bottom. The label features the name of the company name and collection in white block font along the bottom of the image. The scent name is just above this, aligned to the right in larger white block font. The image is of the the Marquis.
- ITB: This is much better. Seductive opium, supple leather, and delightful bay rum mingle together to form something intoxicating.
- Wet: It’s sweet and spicy on my skin, mostly from the bay rum, but a touch from the massoia bark. The opium is still there along with a little leather.
- Dry: A spicy, decadent, and lovely blend. It stays true to it’s form on my skin and I’m so thankful for that! It’s delicious and I want to wrap myself in this scent.
Other Impressions: None.
