Scent Name: In Omnibus Caritas
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2019: Event Exclusive
Scent Description and Notes: “”In all things, love.’ A perfume of compassion, respect, and empathy for our fellow humans, and for the land itself and all the creatures that call it home: honey and mallow flower, sugar cane, white sandalwood, orris, and vanilla bean.” -BPAL.org
Oil Color: Colorless.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). The label wrapped around the bottle features an Art-Deco inspired phoenix with name of the company next to the phoenix. On the other side, the title of the scent written in large, clear black block text outlined in a pinked cherry color.
- ITI: Soft and billowy, light and innocent – the mallow note swirls forth from the imp, trailing sugared, warmed vanilla macaroons and billowing gentle sandalwood in its wake. I’m not normally a foody person, but this is pretty so far. I’m hoping the sandalwood amps on my skin as it could tend toward sugary confection otherwise.
- Wet: Hmm, interesting. Now, I’m getting a honeyed mallow flower more than mallow itself before the confection-like vanilla warms to meet me. I am still getting bits of sandalwood, which act to add a bit of resinous grounding to the sweet top notes. Now, it reminds me of high tea pastries with a floral table setting.
- Dry: Warmed vanilla candle wax perfumed with honey and mallow flower linger after three hours. This still has plenty of legs and throw, too.
Other Impressions: “Somebody buttered up and baked a rose in, like, philo dough.” -Tony
