Anniversary

Blood Phoenix, reviewed 01-02-08
Blood: expressing passion, will, and a sensual aesthetic.
Dragon's blood resin, helichrysum, burgundy wine grape, red musk, opoponax, red poppy, myrrh, carnation, tonka, almond, mimosa, jonquil, and neroli.


On me, Blood Phoenix is just red musk, myrrh, and neroli. They smell pretty good together, but I'm disappointed (though not surprised) my skin ate all the dragon's blood. Still, I'll keep this around.

Green Phoenix, reviewed 12-31-07
Sage, white mint, grey amber, papaya pulp, crushed grass, cucumber, green musk, green tea, and lime rind.

On me, Green Phoenix is grass, cucumber, and what I think is green musk. It's interesting but not really me.

Mechanical Phoenix, reviewed 1-10-08
Copper gears, brass cogs, fused wiring, scorched iron, and motor oil.

On me, Mechanical Phoenix is an ozone cologne. It was nice but I was hoping for the metallic notes. I guess they don't go well with my skin chemistry. Still, I'll keep this one around.

White Phoenix, reviewed 12-30-07
Frangipani, magnolia, cotton flower, osmanthus, crystal musk, ambrette, white orchid, sugar cane, davana, white sandalwood, petitgrain, lavender, and lotus root.

Wet on my skin, White Phoenix is a clean, soapy scent. As it starts to dry, it turns to freshly-washed linen. Fully dry, it's light musk and barely-there floral. It's nice, but too light and airy for me.
