Scent Name: Iole
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Carolyn Hennesy’s Pandora
Scent Description and Notes: “The newcomer. The brains. Pensive and thoughtful. Small and frail, even now Iole sometimes can’t keep up as Pandy and Alcie stride through the market place or the olive orchards or swim in nearby lakes and rivers. But…but…she’s smart as a whip; often using big words when she speaks; not to show off, but only because her mighty mind can’t come up with anything smaller. Will gladly tutor in algebra and calculus!
A serious, studious scent: fig, night-blooming jasmine, red sandalwood, bourbon vanilla, oak bark, leather accord, and black amber.” -BPAL
Oil Color: A bright, cheerful yellow oil.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a decant from ralenth. On the back, she has the notes of the scent. The side features her decanting name while the front has the company acronym, collection, title of scent, and image. The image is of a comic-book inspired woman with her back turned to the viewer. She’s adorned in a lavender low-back dress and has her dark hair loosly coiffed.
- ITI: Very strong night-blooming jasmine with a sweet sandalwood in the background.
- Wet: More jasmine, but I now get some of that vanilla bourbon paired with red sandalwood and some thick leather. It’s a rather intriguing scent.
- Dry: Jasmine, leather, sandalwood, and bourbon. It ends up being similar to a jasmine plug-in, but a little sweeter.
Other Impressions: “I don’t know what that flower smell is, but there is a butter smell and something I don’t quite like. It smells more like a room smell than a person smell.” -Tony
