700! Wow, I didn’t realize I had so many perfumes and oils. I just have one more box of bottles and a host of imps left, and then I have the rest of my designer perfume collection.
I remember smelling this scent and immediately jumping to purchase it. There was something about the mint and lavender together that I loved.
Scent Name: Shirfuji Getna with a Kappa
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Sakura-Con Exclusive, 4/10
Scent Description and Notes: “Lansium domesticum, sweetgrass, benzoin, white mint, lavender, juniper berry, cedarwood, osmanthus, and rice wine.“ -BPAL
Oil Color: I cannot tell from the brown apothecary bottle.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a 5ml standard brown apothecary bottle. The label extends just under halfway around the bottom. The label features the name of the scent name in large white block font aligned to the right at the bottom of the image. Bordering the image are black text boxes featuring the name of the collection and the name of the company in thin, denim-colored font. The image is of what looks like a suma wrestler in a yukata doing something to a lantern near a tree.
- ITB: It’s astringent from the mint and cedarwood and juniper, and strongly herbal from the lavender
- Wet: The rice wine lends a slight acidic but warm tone to the mint, lavender, cedar, and faint juniper. It’s complex, thought-provoking, and appealing.
- Dry: After 13 hours, there is only the most subtle hint of mint, benzoin, and a little sweetgrass. Pretty.
Other Impressions: None.
