Scent

My Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab fragrances have arrived. Here’s what was in the box:

Titania and Cordelia

From the Illyria collection, a 5ml bottle of Cordelia and a 5ml bottle of Titania.

Cordelia is described as “The essence of faith, love and devotion: lilac, lemon, green tea, wisteria, osmanthus, white cedar, and Chinese musk.” The lilac in this formulation is so fresh and true, it instantly evokes the tree that grew outside my bedroom window when I was a teenager.

Titania is described as “A nocturnal bounty of fae dew-kissed petals and pale fruits: white grape, white peach, iced pear, musk rose, sweet pea, moonflower and snapdragon.”  This smells like the cool of evening after a hot day, imagine sitting outside in the grass, late on a summer night.

Also included were four “imp’s ears” (small 1/32oz sample bottles) of The Antikythera Mechanism, Blood Kiss, Gomorrah, and Coyote. Despite having a trendy vampire hook, Blood Kiss is absolutely luscious, with notes of vanilla and honey (plus “the vital throb of husky clove, swollen red cherries, but darkened with the vampiric sensuality of vetiver, soporific poppy and blood red wine, and a skin-light pulse of feral musk.”)

Come smell me. I’m delicious.
