I anticipate lavender from this blend based on the name and the collection. Perhaps chamomile. However, since there are no scent notes listed, I will describe what I smell to the best of my ability.
Scent Name: Somnus
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Somnium
Scent Description and Notes: “Named after the Roman God of Sleep. This blend helps bring on deep, restful, natural sleep.”-https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/general-catalog-perfume-oils/somnium/somnus/
Oil Color: A honeyed wine color.
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 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: Wow, that’s strong. There’s definitely strong lavender in here that’s somewhat medicinal and clean like lavender Epsom salts, along with another note that strikes me as green and lightly herbal. The scent as a whole is much sharper than I anticipated and it’s a blend that I would want to dry down before attempting to sleep.
- Wet: Lavender soap and a soothing herbal greenness. As it starts to settle, I notice the implication of white florals like jasmine and aster. Below these is a faint impression of vanilla, but it isn’t enough to completely sooth the astringency of the lavender at this point.
- Dry: The jasmine, screechingly white and assertive, has overtaken the lavender, leaving me with the urge to wash my arm. There’s a little powderiness to this that tempers the jasmine a little, but not enough to ease me to dreamland. I can say with 100% confidence that there is jasmine in this blend.
Other Impressions: “I can smell it in my eyes. I’m not sure what it is, but it got into my tear ducts and right into my sinuses. Is that what it smells like when you blow up a caramel factory with a rose bomb?” -Tony
