Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab: Cave of Treasures

BPAL Cave of Treasures

Sweet amber and golden honey, cream accord, blue lilac, and a drop of cardamom.

I’m not a huge floral person, but I’ve discovered that I really enjoy the smell of lilacs. They’re a big part of one of my favorite scents ever, Jareth, and a friend was kind enough to decant a little bit for me to try. Since this was a BPAL 2017 Lupercalia scent, it is no longer available.

In the bottle: Florals and spices. This actually reminds me of a commercial “oriental floral” type of scent.

On the skin: This scent definitely becomes more nuanced on the skin. The lilacs become more distinct, and I can also smell the cardamom. It’s a delicate cardamom however, not very powerful, but enough to add some spicy dimension. There’s a creamy smoothness to this as well that I think pairs really well with the lilac. I like this!

TL;DR: Lilacs with a soft undercurrent of creamy spices. Very feminine. 3.5/5.
