Vice - Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab
Sin & Salvation
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab
Voluptuous and indulgent! A deep chocolate scent, with black cherry and orange blossom.
In the vial this smells like chocolate and something medicinally herbal – it’s quite masculine. Once applied it becomes... well, I don’t know if anyone else has this experience but there are quite a few BPAL scents that just turn into a generic mash of smells on me, and this is one of them. It smells of nothing in particular, it’s neither pleasant or unpleasant, it’s just there. The dry down was the same – I couldn’t pick out a single note or compare it to anything aside from the other BPALs that have this effect on me. Sillage and longevity was medium.
2/5 Not a scrubber, so I wouldn't give it a 1, but... meh.
