A Murder of Crows - Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab
A Murder of Crows
Halloweenie: Pumpkin Patch 2007 Companion
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab
Sleek iris and verbena, grey amber, benzoin, davana and glossy herbs.
Nadja requested a review of this one, and I was happy to oblige because I love me some iris. In the vial, I can smell the iris - it's floral and pretty without being girly, slightly astringent and lemony from the verbena.
Annoyingly, once applied on my the iris all but disappears and all I mostly get is the verbena. It smells herby with a faint indistinct floral note for a while as it dries down.
After about 30 minutes, the iris becomes more prominent again, while the herbal notes retreat to the background.
Unlike many BPAL scents on me, this perfume sits very close to the skin with little throw. It disappeared entirely within a few hours.
3/5. It's a nice enough perfume and the iris is lovely when it appears, but I have far better iris scents.
