BPAL: Steamworks/No. 93 Engine

Beeswax candles reflect flickering light onto a brass-coated boiler engraved with the words “Solve Et Coagula”. The gargantuan boiler sends torrents of steam into rigid pipes that exert force onto innumerable pistons and turbine blades. The motion is harnessed to propel energy into gargantuan cogs and gears that move liquid metals, herbs, and resins into a series of alembics.

Balm of Gilead, benzoin, frankincense, balsam of peru, beeswax, saffron, galbanum, calamus, hyssop, mastic, lemon balm, and white sage.

In packing for our trip, I was going through my imps to decide what to take (too many in the end) and realized I had an imp of this I've never tried before. So I tested it. I'm not sure which note I'm amount but wet it's sweetly spicy and now, dry for over an hour, it's a very woody fragrance still with a hint of sweetness to it. Very lovely and not quite what I was expecting.

Meanwhile other tested scents that used to smell good to me even in the bottle are now incredibly off-putting to me. I'll catalog them later, but whoa nelly! Not for me! Lol
