Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Lupercalia 2020: Shunga – Novel Ideas for Secret Amusements
Scent Description and Notes: “Gossamer vanilla, ylang ylang, magnolia blossom, tuberose, ambrette seed, white moss, and white patchouli.” -https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/novel-ideas-for-secret-amusements-shunga-2020/the-snipes-beak-trapped-in-a-clam-shell-perfume-oil/
Oil Color: The color of a light white wine, thinned with ice.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 1/32 ml imp that has been decanted for me by Yowahoshihime. Her label features the scent notes on the back along with her decanting information and the scent name. The front of the label contains the company acronym and collection name and date. The label art is similar to below, without the editing:
- ITI: Magnolia and ylang ylang bloom, white heady florals that have surrounded themselves with vanilla-sweetened ambrette and a hint of white moss.
- Wet: The magnolia is much stronger on my skin, waxy and almost oil in his floral signature, sweetened by ylang ylang and now tuberose, spread over vanilla’d moss with a touch of patchouli, like woven lace set under the rich florals.
- Dry: The scent dries down to a subdued white musk consisting of the mangolia and ylang ylang with hints of tuberose and vanilla sweet fluff. Pretty.
Other Impressions: “It smells like pomegranate, faint spearmint, and…orange rind.” -Tony
