Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 5ml brown bottle from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab. The label features the name of the company in small white bold block font shadowed in black along the bottom of the label. The scent name is a larger version of the same font above that. The label art is as featured below:
- ITB: What a varied, shifting layering of scents – at once I get flashes of lychee juice supplanted by herbal lavender and lavender blooms with thick white floral tones from magnolia, and lily of the valley. I’m not sure how I feel about it as the lavender feels at odd with the white florals.
- Wet: Breathy white floral of ylang ylang and lilt of the valley rival the insistence of herbal lavender and lavender blooms with a hint of magnolia underneath. It’s a bit soapy, but not terribly so.
- Dry: As the scent starts to settle and warm on my skin, roughly 2-3 minutes in, the scent moves from bright florals with herbal lavender to something that reminds me of a stream, the banks of which are dotted with white whispering florals. After three hours and a brisk walk, the scent, close to the skin, still reminds me of soft flower-lined stream or brook, gentle florals ever so slightly sweet mingled with tones of clear, crisp water.
Other Impressions: “It smells like those little rose decorative hand soaps, specifically the ones that smell like rose and some other perfume.” -Tony
