Scent Description and Notes: “Rice milk, rice flower, fossilized amber, champaca, and frangipani.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/novel-ideas-for-secret-amusements-shunga-2020/libidinous-encounter-during-the-rice-harvest-perfume-oil/
Oil Color: A thin apricot honey colored oil.
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: Okay, that’s nice! Warm and balanced, the amber, fossilized and a touch dusky, pairs wonderfully with the aromatic champaca, both of which have been sweetened by frangipani and a touch of softness underneath. It’s warm, resinous, earthy, smoky, sexy, and floral – it definitely evokes images of covert couplings during a late summer harvest.
- Wet: Oh, that champaca is even smokier on my skin, but with that ancient amber and rich, heady floral, it is just beautiful. There’s a softness to this as well that’s not distinct as rice flower or rice milk, but it provides a gentle foundation for the top notes to shine.
- Dry: After 3 hours, rice milk and rice flower emerge just under the amber’d champaca, adding a soft white creaminess to the scent that marries the resins and the now subdued frangipani. Nice.
Other Impressions: “What is that? Frankincense? Myrrh? It’s very calming. I like it.” -Tony
