Scent Name: Silver Lace
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Retail Exclusive: Dark Delicacies
Scent Description and Notes: “Not only is silver the traditional 25th anniversary gift, but it has deep, shiny roots in horror – from the silver that scorches vampires to the bullets that take werewolves down. Silver is the gleam of a goth’s ankh, silver is the sliver of the fog-shrouded moon. This Lace is cool and metallic, gleaming and liminal, sharp and fanged, with bitter black vanilla husk, bourbon tobacco, white cognac, juniper berry, white musk, ti leaf, and Italian bergamot. ” -https://www.darkdel.com/store/p1522/Silver_Lace.html
Oil Color: Colorless 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 company along the bottom in a red block script, mirroring the name of the collaborating store, Dark Delicacies, positioned along the top. The name of the scent is in a larger more ornate warm grey font just below the cartoon of Del holding an open book with number “25” in red horror font projecting from the book. The image art is as follows:
- ITB: Oh, that’s interesting. Ti leaf with white cognac, crushed juniper berries are juxtaposed with bergamot and the shadow of tobacco, providing a furry warmth at the scent’s heart
- Wet: Oh, it almost smells like a juniper fougere, heavy on the bergamot. I’m picking up the white cognac with a warm undertone of vanilla husk and the slight astringency, which must be from the ti leaf note.
- Dry: Beautiful pure black vanilla mixed with tobacco, bourbon, and bergamot make for an exquisite scent that is sophisticated, complex, and sensual. Lovely!
Other Impressions: “There’s something in it that is very familiar to one of BPAL’s Weenies from 2017.” -Kelly
