I have so much fun talking to each and everyone of you! I love replying to your emails, messages, and comments! It really brightens my day up!
I know that sometimes I take a while to reply to some messages but I do my best to always answer everyone!
I’ve decided to add a little chat room to my blog! If you scroll down the page a little and look towards your right hand side on my blog you’ll see a little button that says “Click to Chat”. If you click it (be sure your browser has popups disabled otherwise it won’t work) a little chat room will pop up and you can chat with each other or me if I am online at the moment! You’ll notice it lists the numbers of chatters but I don’t think this updates correctly so if it reads 0 chatters still pop your head in because it’s likely myself or someone will be in the room since it doesn’t appear to be updating correctly!
I’ll be doing a schedule (when I have some free time) for live chat nights if anyone is interested so we can gather together and babble our hearts out about cosmetics, life, the universe, and everything 😉
I will, of course, leave the chatroom up and running when I am online so that if you happen to wander on you can say hello to me!
Many thanks for all your comments it makes doing these blogs a pure joy!
I look forward to talking to each and everyone of you!
With the new moon comes new perfume blends and of course it comes right on time to compliment tomorrow’s lunar eclipse!
The goblins have been mighty busy at the Lab and have concocted an array of scary little treats to make your blood curl!
The Trading Post has been equally busy creating it’s Halloween Trick or Treat perfume oil blends as well!
I explained the Lab in a prior blog do check it out prior to reading this one!
I believe I’m shivering with fright…errr…I mean excitement at the prospect of all the goodies that await us at the Lab this Halloween season!
The Newest Halloween Blends are cut into three categories.
The first which is simply entitled “Halloween Blends”. Lucky enough for me nothing is too appealing on this list as most of the blends are very earthy, herbal, or floral blends!
If you’re the type of girl that loves a dark scent this category be for you!
All Souls 2007
All Souls makes a reappearance year after year and of course each year it has a tiny touch of difference from the year before as no two scents are created equal!
The Lab describes it as An incense blend that invokes the higher qualities of mercy and compassion, mingled with the soft, sugared currant scent of offertory soul cakes.
Bonfire Night is an entirely new blend for the Lab and has never been introduced prior to this year! The Lab describes it as Beer, woodsmoke, tar, and treacle.
The Death of Autumn
Another new blend! The Lab describes it as Dark amber, dead leaves, khus, saffron, bitter clove, chrysanthemum, camellia, galangal, and a drop of oud.
Dia De Los Muertos 2007 (Day of the Dead)
A blend that makes an appearance almost ever year and revisits to torture and torment! The Lab describes it as funeral bouquets, the candies, chocolates, foods and tobacco of the ofrenda, amaranth, sweet cactus blossom and desert cereus.
Yet another new blend! The Lab describes it as Dry, cold autumn wind. A rustle of red leaves, a touch of smoke and sap in the air.
Another old friend that visits almost ever year! The Lab describes it as damp woods, fir needle, and black patchouli with the gentlest touches of warm pumpkin, clove, nutmeg, allspice, sweet red apple and mullein.
Again, a visitor from the past that is knock knock knocking at our chamber door! The Lab describes it as Menacing Haitian vetiver, patchouli, and clove with a shock of bourbon geranium, grim oakmoss, and dread-inspiring balsams pierce the innocuous scent of autumn leaves.
Sugar Skull 2007
Last but never least in my book another old friend that the Muse purchases each and every year….The Lab describes it as A blend of five sugars, lightly dusted with candied fruits.
Personally I’ll only be purchasing Sugar Skull 2007 from this lot the others are way too dark, earthy, and generally gross smelling to my nose!
The second category is entitled Halloween Blends: The Haunted House. This category appeals very little to me as well sadly but hey…money saved! All blends in this collection are brand new and have never been released prior to this year!
The Atrocious Attic
Described as sugared nectar of carnivorous blooms, putrefying wet greenery, oozing sap, crushed rosary peas, withered climbing roses, and nightshade berries.
The Lurid Library
Described as The incense-tinged scent of forbidden tomes and the musk-laden remnants of infernal servants.
The Perilous Parlor
Described as soft white pear and sweet vanilla.
The Twisted Oak Tree
Described as Blackened, rotted oak wood blanketed in moss and choked by a cloak of grasping ivy.
Lastly an old favorite of mine The Pumpkin Patch 2007 Set! As described in another blog of mine this is a great little set if you’ve never tried anything from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab perfume! The blends in this set are truly a lovely little piece of Halloween and Fall! Some of these are revisited in a different format than prior blends and I’m not entirely sure if I am going to enjoy these variations as some sound a bit floral!
The Pumpkins can be purchased together as a set or solely.
They include the following perfume oil blends:
Pumpkin with pear, white wine grapes, and jasmine-laced tea.
Pumpkin with tobacco, champa flower, carnation, and tonka.
Pumpkin with white chocolate, caramel, pomegranate, and cream.
Pumpkin with cactus blossom, sage, and sweetgrass.
Pumpkin with benzoin, bourbon vanilla, lemon peel, neroli, blood orange, and red ginger.
If you purchase the pumpkins as a set they’ll also include an imp of a special oil entitled the Murder of Crows.
The Lab describes it as Sleek iris and verbena, grey amber, benzoin, davana, and glossy herbs.
The Halloween Blends are on sale and available for order up until November 10th. They will be than taken down and may or may not return next year as blends do change and rotate year to year!
I’m excited that the Lab’s Trading Post has brought back it’s Trick or Treat Limited Edition perfume blends! These are something the muse wants to get her hands on!
The Tricks aren’t as appealing as the Treats so the Muse really wants to get her hands on some Treats!
Sugar-slathered Candied Apple With a dollop of caramel!
Marshmallow Poof A gooey mound of white fluffiness! And yes, it is vegan!
Pumpkin Cheesecake Graham crackery and cream cheesy! Cinnamon brown sugary! Just a little carroty!
Egg’d Mailbox! Fresh egg, just starting to warm nicely in the sun!
Pumpkin Smash! Pumpkin pulp, beeswax candles, smoke, asphalt, and beer!
TP’d Trees! Cypress, oak, and pine covered in 2-ply!
And finally a special edition that’s neither trick or treat!
Spiked Punch Chunky fruit punch with a generous splash of booze!
These are on sale until October 10th and the chances of a revisit are slim to zero so get them while the going is good! Meaning they are highly limited edition!
It appears the Lab is boiling up tons of goodies in it’s cauldron for this upcoming Halloween!
