Red roses and vetiver with cashmere incense, rue, and cauldron spices.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/autumn-collection/halloween-2018/pickman-gallery-2018/the-witches-ride/
Oil Color: The color of white wine.
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 and her decanter information on the back. The front has the name of the scent and company name along with the label art, which is as below:
- ITI: Soft and sophisticated. Soft and sensual, the rose note strikes me both as rose water and deep red rose petals strewn about an alter, training from which are dusky spices like cardamom and a pinch of all spice.
- Wet: …Pear? I wasn’t expecting a pear note, but I think the red rose note is so juicy and lush, and the spices so reminiscent of fall and winter baking, that my brain is being tricked. Perhaps the pear greenness I’m picking it is from the rue. Warm kitchen spices warm on my skin, shifting the scent from green/rose to kitchen spice, cardamom especially, with a gorgeous red rose in the background.
- Dry: Alas, after 4 hours, it goes to dusting powder rose.
Other Impressions: “It’s powdery. I don’t like it.” -Tony
