Scent Name: Event Horizon
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Bewitching Brews
Scent Description and Notes: “A disconcerting scent, heavy and oppressive, through which no light, no matter, and no spirit can escape. Black opium, labdanum, opoponax, black orchid, and benzoin.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/general-catalog-perfume-oils/bewitching-brews/event-horizon/
Oil Color: A gorgeous cherried walnut colored oil.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). The label wrapped around the bottle features an Art-Deco inspired phoenix with name of the company next to the phoenix. On the other side, the title of the scent written in large, clear black font outlined with red on the front.
- ITI: I knew almost the instant that I smelled it that I would want a bottle of Event Horizon. Thick, resinous, deep, familiar yet weighty and almost oppressive in its opium and labdanum smoked haze.
- Wet: The resin sweetens on my skin, enhancing the golden brown hues of the thick opium, benzoin, and labdanum, to the point of evoking cinnamon channeled into root-made-resin.
- Dry: Mmm! Sexy skin-musk warmed orchid laced with thick sinuous ribbons, sweetened with labdanum and hints of faded incense.
Other Impressions: I liked this so much that I felt compelled to order a bottle so I could continue to slather myself in its gloriousness.
“Didn’t you wear something like this? I swear, I know you have it. I’ve smelled this on you before. No? Well, it smells like things you would gravitate toward. It’s medicinal and dark but like folk medicine. Oddly comforting.” -Tony
