Scent Name: Lilith’s First Concert
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Lilith: Fatherhood 2019
Scent Description and Notes: “Lilith loves Billie Eilish, and when her concerts were announced earlier this year, I attempted (like every other parent) to get tickets for the local show at the Greek Theatre – but it sold out in a matter of minutes. Backstory time: I worked in concert ticketing for years, so I begged one of my ticketing friends to help get me house seats. She laughed and said it was not one of her shows, and that some of the people in her office tried and failed to get tickets to the Greek show. If ticketing people can’t get tickets, the show is a really, really hot ticket. After a few minutes of begging and pleading, she said that if I was willing to travel she might be able to get tickets for a show outside of Los Angeles. As everyone knows, I would move mountains for my Lilith, so of course I said yes. A few days later she emailed me to say that yes, she could get me tickets…but the choices were Red Rocks in CO, Portland, or San Diego. I chose San Diego and gave her my credit card info. As the date neared, Lilith was so excited about the show that she talked about it nonstop. The joy on her face when we arrived at our seats was worth all the hoops that I jumped through. It just goes to show that a father will do anything to make his baby happy.
Day-Glo green lime and tea leaf with lavender, white musk, and a bit of Dorian.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/autumn-collection/lilith-2019/fatherhood-2019/liliths-first-concert-perfume-oil/
Oil Color: Colorless.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 5ml BPAL brown apothecary bottle. The label wrapped around the bottle features the name of the scent in large shadowed block, white letters along the top of the bottle, while the name of the company is at the bottom in smaller white block font. The name of the collection and year are situated just about the company name in an electric blue color. The label art is as follows:
- ITB: That smells like an amped lime-green fougere, heavy on the day-glow green, although the tea leaves temper the citrus elements, reminding me of limed lights though the rolling fog.
- Wet: The lime is a bit clearer on the skin, eclipsing the fougere for a few minutes before the brightness starts to settle against the tea leaf and musks. I can’t put my finger on it, but there’s something here that reminds me of paper just below the line.
- Dry: This mellows pretty quickly After 6 hours, the scent is a lime tinged fougere musk laced with gentle tea leaf and the subtle warmth of vanilla without the foody sweetness.
Other Impressions: None.
