Death and Floral
Alkemia Hellcat was created by Sharra Lamoureaux in 2013. It is a "dark and ferociously sexy blend of Black Oud, Black Musk, Labdanum, and spiced Pipe Tobacco blended with a seductive purr of Black Opium."
"Would ye leave this wild and live,
Strange road is ours, for where the she-wolf lies
Shall no man pass, except the path he tries
Her craft entangle."
- Dante Alighieri, Inferno
This is the parfum oil. It is also free of parabens, phthalates, PDGs and other unpleasant things. Alkemia is a hand-blended and small batch perfumery using natural essences, ethically rendered accords, and lab-created aroma molecules.
Reddit - "loral tendrils, sweet and ice cold. It smells very... dimensional? Like there are those high, cold, pale notes that are in distinct swirls above a dark void, not blended together in one big block of scent. Something is latched onto the cold tendrils that's more spicy, maybe part of the “spiced” tobacco...It's very, very heady. Definitely a femme fatale kind of scent. A bit of tobacco chiming in to make things interesting."
Reddit - "Extemely feral. Very dark and warm, a lot of black leather"
Fragrantica - "Rich, heavy, honeyed, this juice is an acquired taste, a handful, both compelling yet difficult. It’s both sweet and bracing, and potentially something to wear into battle, or through a zombie apocalypse or whatever savage dystopian version of the future requires a person to be totally indifferent to whether what you’re wearing actually smells appealing to others, present day conditions included."
Fragrantica - "Right out of the sample vial and onto my fingers the first thing is WHAM! Animalic. Civet, even. That musk is dank, intense, unforgiving! There is no denying to sensitive noses that a deep furry, sweaty monster came to play."
Fragrantica - "Intense Bal A Versaille vibe. Skanky and magnificent. Absolutely not for everyone but if you love BAV like I do, I would jump right in."
