Scent Name: Eclipses Be
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – The Great American Eclipse
Scent Description and Notes: “
Eclipses be – predicted –
And Science bows them in –
But do one face us suddenly –
Jehovah’s watch – is wrong.
– Emily Dickinson
Rose amber, carnation, and clove.” –https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/limited-edition/the-great-american-eclipse/songs-of-midday-darkness/eclipses-be/
Oil Color: A slightly rose-tinged amber distillation.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a sample from Crown & Tulip, which features the bottle image on the front and the name, logo, and website of the company on back. The label art that would be on the bottle features the name of the scent in shadowed yellow block font, which is situated above the company name, which is in lower case bolded font in a black border along the bottom edge. The image itself, individuals looking at an eclipse in what looks to be London, is framed by another black border that contains the lower case name of the collection.
- ITI: The carnation and clove are bright and spicy as the scent emerges from the bottle, followed by the rose, sweetening the spiciness while the amber seems to act as an intermediary to add a delightful soft resinousness to the scent as a whole.
- Wet: The clove moves more to the forefront, followed by the carnation. The amber is soft and almost creamy behind the two spicy notes. The rose emerges last but blooms around the other notes, adding a touch of femininity to the scent as a whole. It reminds me of cinnamon bears and rose candy.
- Dry: After 12 hours, my skin eats up nearly everything save for the faint impression of aged rose. I do wish it lasted longer, but I loved every stage of this blend.
Other Impressions: None.
