Scent Description and Notes: “MOUNT FUJI REFLECTED IN LAKE MISAICA
An oakmoss chypre with black cypress, wild mint, labdanum, pine needles, white sandalwood, and white cedar.” -BPAL.org
Oil Color: The color of light rum.
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 shunga woodblock print of script set off by two partially kimono-clothed individuals engaged in coitus during which both appear to be examining the view.
- ITI: Oh yeah, that is definitely a lovely oakmoss chypre enhanced by crisp pine needles and delightfully aromatic cedar. There’s an edge of mint at the very end of the inhalation that brights a slightly brighter lilt to the deeply engrossing woods.
- Wet: Mmm, strong oakmoss and pine chypre, lightly smoked with sandalwood and labdanum. The touch of mint rounds out the heavier top notes and adds a touch of brightness.
- Dry: After a full day, the scent has dried down into a soft woodsy chypre with the faintest hint of smoked incense sweetness. Pleasing, for sure.
Other Impressions: “It smells like slightly sweaty cat and powder, like Loki. It smells like cat musk, I guess.” -Tony
