Scent Name: Mopey Boar Alchemy Lab
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – BPAL Anniversary: Sweet Sixteen
Scent Description and Notes: “Tagline: “Extraordinary scents for extraordinarily forlorn people.”
Truffles and clove bud with smoky incense, cardamom pod, and ginger.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/winter-collection/sweet-sixteen/mopey-boar-alchemy-lab/
Oil Color: The color of diluted 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: The truffle, while not distinctly a mushroom smell, does shift the scent toward the more damp and earthy side, which is strangely augmented by the cardamom, inky incense, and what smells like powdered ginger (not that lovely spice, but more the herbal tone). It reminds me of walking into a Chinese apothecary shop.
- Wet: I’m getting the strangest impressions once applied to my skin. It smells like cola Necco candies and bathroom air freshener on my skin. I am getting husky cardamom and older powdered ginger, set against the earthy truffle and dark smoke notes. I normally love spice-driven scents, but this is somewhat unsettling to me.
- Dry: The scent isn’t very long-lived. After 4 hours, my skin has swallowed up all but the ghost of a spiced musk.
Other Impressions: None.
