Description – A disconcerting scent, heavy and oppressive, through which no light, no matter, and no spirit can escape. Black opium, labdanum, opoponax, black orchid, and benzoin.
In the bottle – A dark heat.
First Impression – Positive. Can’t quite pick the smells. Dousing myself, as I’m hopeful. I’m getting the black orchid, quite a deep scent, dark, mysterious. Almost like a deep …

While I don't feel the need to add this to my collection, it is a good, warm, earthy, incensy scent. It tends to stay close to the skin which in this case, is a good thing as this scent lends itself to a "darker" feeling scent. Also, I was glad that I could not pick up on the benzoine note which generally ruins a scent for me. Overall, pleasant, yet unremarkable.

Rich, thick, slightly sticky-smelling resinous frankincense, sweet and slightly woody. Dries to a vanillic resin with the faintest suggestion of spice. Quite lovely, but very skin-close, very hard to detect at any distance. (Not necessarily a problem) It you like sweet resinous incense, this is a must-try. If you like dry woody incense, this is a different animal.

Here's the Lab description: "A disconcerting scent, heavy and oppressive, through which no light, no matter, and no spirit can escape. Black opium, labdanum, opoponax, black orchid, and benzoin."

Wow, I love this scent. It's dark and kind of heavy, yet still wearable. Languid and decadent. The opium and opoponax (a form of resin) notes really stand out, but the …
