Scent Description and Notes: “Eve is eternal: in three-thousand years, she has likely traveled the length and breadth of the world, immersed in innumerable cultures throughout the ages, observing the ebb and flow of humanity and the imperishability of nature itself. Despite her age, she is the character that seems most rooted, always experiencing each moment with open eyes, always fully present.
Her scent is one that travels through the eons: the Irish moss, yarrow, and hawthorn of the Iron Age Britons, ancient Rome’s omphacium and honey, myrrh and calamus from Egypt, the frankincense and damask roses of the Florentine Renaissance, white sandalwood from the Far East, Moroccan saffron and rose water, and a swirl of incense from the souls.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/only-lovers-left-alive/eve-olla/
Omphacium: A famous Roman olive-oil blend
Calamus: Also known as sweet flag, it’s said to have a scent like cinnamon, but more refreshing.
Oil Color: Colorless on my skin.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard brown apothecary bottle. The label wrapped around the bottle features the name of the company in thin white font along the bottom while the name of the scent is in thicker white block font justified to the right at the top of the label. Just above the company’s name is the name of the collection in Gothic red script. The label art is as featured:
- ITB: Damask roses in full bloom with a lovely spiced incense that guilds the edges of scent.
- Wet: It reminds me of chai spices and rose when applied directly to my skin. Very nice amount of sillage and warmth to this scent.
- Dry: After a few hours, it’s still warm chai spices, slightly sweetened, edged with rose and faint resins. I can see why this one is such a cult favorite.
