Happy Friday!! Today I’m wearing Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab’s Pediophobia, white porcelain cracked by white tobacco, threads of brittle cognac, and vanilla filigree. Pediphobia by definition is fear of dolls. A friend with an amazing nose recommended this one, and I am so glad I took her up on it.
In the Bottle: Sharp perfume smell, it must be the cognac. I get a sharp, dry smell that has an underlying sweetness.
Color: Very light yellow
Wet on Skin: I get a burst of really bright tobacco smell with the boozy cognac notes next to it. This is VERY strong, throw is large.
Dry Down: This dries down into a still prominent tobacco note, but I get some light vanilla, that must be the vanilla filigree. Almost as if the smell is laced with just a tad of vanilla.
This is super sophisticated, I feel like this would be a good scent for a dinner date or going into an important client meeting (although maybe not applying too much as it’s S T R O N G). The tobacco note in this is dry and sweet, almost like a tobacco flower. It’s one of my most unique scents and I’m keeping my eye out for a back-up bottle.
