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 the 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: Well, that’s cinnamon, coriander, and Ceylon tea right there. It’s certainly heavily spiced with subtle intonations of tea and herbs. I am getting something that reminds me of bark and a green, herbal note that I think might be thyme. My nose tingles a bit as well, so I suspect there might be a dash of pepper thrown in.
- Wet: It’s much the same on my skin as in the imp, but there’s definitely pepper in it (which makes me feel light-headed). As the scent starts to warm and settle, the green herbal notes blossom, followed by something that reminds me of olive oil.
- Dry: After an hour, the floral aspects (reminds me of violet and crocus) of the scent are more apparent, but the Ceylon cinnamon and spicy, herbal notes swell above the more delicate notes.
