Scent Name: Þvörusleikir
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Yule Lads: Yule 2015
Scent Description and Notes: “Favorite pastime: licking spoons and ladles. There’s no accounting for taste. The scent of well-worn wooden utensils, lightly fondled, and a wisp of kitchen herbs.” -http://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/the-yule-lads/thvorusleikir/
Oil Color: Colorless
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a decant from Absinthetics. On the back, she has the notes of the scent, the name of the scent in bold orange font. Her decanting information is in green. The font of the label features the same label art as the bottle, which is the name in light yellow, shadowed font.
- ITI: Oh, I like that. Herbs emerge as the first note, a combination of cumin, turmeric, what I think might be sage, thyme, oregano, parsley, and well worn wood.
- Wet: The wood warms on my skin ans the cumin and turmeric yield slightly to the more astringent herbs. I pick up something that registers as slightly aquatic and something else that is mildly reminiscent of lemon, under all of it.
- Dry: This isn’t a particularly long-wearing scent. After 4 hours, I get the faint impression of a kitchen infused with only the memory of herbs.
Other Impressions: “It smells like lemongrass and the center of a Jawbreaker.” -Tony
