Aconite accord is from monkshood. It’s supposedly smells faintly floral, but I haven’t ever had the opportunity to smell it myself.
Dittany of Crete is an aromatic that is thyme or oregano-like but much more medicinal in smell.
Oil Color: A dilute golden orange on my skin.
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 collaborating store, Rituacravt, positioned along the top in am underlined, thin New Age font in white. The name of the scent is in a smaller but thicker and more Bookman Antique-like font toward the bottom of the image. The image art is as follows:
- ITB: Yum! That sweet patchouli note is just so decadent and sublime, especially next to the ambrette seed, which brings out a beautiful golden, warm tone to the scent before waves of warm saffron, musk, tobacco, and yew lap tumble over it. Wow.
- Wet: Sweet, rich patchouli and ambrette seed are just brilliant together next to the saffron crocus. As the scent sits, the tobacco and sandalwood atop delicious musk, a faint floral, and wild herbal tone bloom, lending the scent an alluring warmth while emphasizing the dangerously feminine and foreboding edge of the scent as a whole.
- Dry: 12 hours later, the scent is very close to the skin, but the sweetened ambrette patchouli with traces of tobacco, and a non-distinct wood still linger, ghosts on my skin.
