This is the final Full Moon of winter. The call of the crow signals the end of the frost, and their scent, of vervain, black violet, white musk, and Chinese cedar, is brushed by the last cold wind of winter on their wings, and the scent of evergreen boughs touched by the season’s final flowers and the first blossoms of spring: wintersweet, green-barked dogwood, primrose, snowdrop, and lenten rose hellebore bouquet.
Cold like a sharp breeze, causing the evergreen boughs to shake ever so slightly, sending pines falling to the ground. A slightly sweet floral note emerges shyly underneath the minty fresh chill. Pale white musk lends an animalistic touch to the overall scent, but only very lightly, and almost imperceptible, as the scent is dominated by the whole greenness of the perfume, which vaguely reminds me of freshly cut grass.
On a side note, I really do quite like BPAL (Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab), because they have very unique fragrances and take inspiration from many interesting things, but their things are always so pricey and shipping is crazy high, and the things get sold out quickly/are limited edition statuses and I’m slow… so yeah.
Oh, and after October’s Halloween/Autumn indie perfumes, November’s Scents and Perfumery section will be focused on BPAL scents. (though I only have 4. So we’ll see what to do on the last week of November.)
