BPAL: Shadow

Bewitching Brews

A subtly menacing blend of lemon verbena, white sandalwood and cedar, dimmed by droplets of the darkest patchouli.
Sent to me from oyceter.

Vial: Cedar, maybe a hint of patchouli but it's a little sweet.

Wet: Cedar, with strong overlay of lemon verbena.

Drydown: The lemon verena has faded, and I smell mostly cedar, perhaps with hints of patchouli and sandalwood, but the blending is very smooth and it's hard to discern.

I wouldn't call it "subtly menacing," but I do like it. I smell like nicely polished wood furniture, maybe with incense stored in one of the drawers.
