Scent Name: Trois
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Lupercalia: Une Douzaine de Roses
Scent Description and Notes: “White rose, orris root, and ambergris accord.“-https://blackphoenixalchemylab.com/shop/in-memoriam/trois/
Oil Color: Colorless on my skin.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 5ml brown glass vial. The name of the company and the collection are in small white bold font framing the image. The label art is a tinted artistic image of a rose. The scent name is in large, shadowed white font just above the company name, which is located closer to the bottom of the label.
- ITB: Strident white floral laden with orris emerge as dominant notes, yet there’s something faintly buggy and oddly salty about this one that worries me. Alas, I’m not getting any ambergris at all so far.
- Wet: I’m still getting something that’s rather buggy on my skin (probably the orris), but the rose note is crisp and pretty. On the second application, however, the white rose almost smells like a yellow rose and the orris is much more agreeable. There isn’t much ambergris, though.
- Dry: After 6 hours, the scent becomes gentle white rose with a round, resinous, musky sweetness (my beloved ambergris) that envelopes the edges of the scent. Nice.
Other Impressions: None.
