Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Lupercalia 2020: Shunga – Novel Ideas for Secret Amusements
Scent Description and Notes: “Rice paper, white tea, and rice milk with blackberry juice and bergamot.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/novel-ideas-for-secret-amusements-shunga-2020/couple-reading-erotic-scroll-perfume-oil/
Oil Color: The color of melted butter.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 1/32 ml imp that has been decanted for me by Yowahoshihime. Her label features the scent notes on the back along with her decanting information and the scent name. The front of the label contains the company acronym and collection name and date. The label art is similar to below, without the editing:
- ITI: I’m getting blackberry, although slightly artificial, infused with bergamot, but there’s something that reads as pepper here to my nose that is throwing me. I was hoping it would be a bit softer due to the rice milk and rice paper notes, but perhaps those will be more evident on my skin.
- Wet: Okay, that’s much more like blackberry juice, richly purple and delicious, threaded with subtle bergamot and a hint of rice paper and white tea. Right now, it’s mostly lush blackberry, which makes my mouth water.
- Dry: This is beautiful dried – soft blackberry and florid bergamot linger at the top over a hint of white tea and faint creaminess underneath.
Other Impressions: “Tropical fruit punch bubble gum. There’s a sweetness and something powdery that reads as bubblegum. And maybe hibiscus in there? It’s nice. I like it. Super pleasant. After it’s dry, it smells like a fruity musk. Still pleasant.” -Tony
