Fall is so here for me today. I’m busy stocking up on home fragrance today and I’m also delighted, absolutely delighted to share with you the fact that the Lab’s Halloweenie blends have launched
Many of you are familiar with my love of BPAL but those who are not and simply love Halloween must race over and take a peek at some of the new (and old favorite) fragrances they have introduced for Halloween/Fall 2012.
These fragrance oils come in 5ML glass alchemy bottles and are quite potent. Each scent is utterly unique and really evokes the start of Fall for me.
I just did my haul this morning!
Jump ahead for the entire collection!
Please, if you’re ordering anything at all make sure it includes a bottle of Sugar Skull. I’ve collected this scent for 8 years and each year it just seems to get better and better and better!
Here’s the entire list of scents available for Fall/Halloween 2012.
All Souls’ Night, 1917
Embers that give no warmth; cold hands stoking a fire that gives no light. Fragonia, carrot seed, and ashen sandalwood.
Quicksilver-cold and heartless: white sandalwood, immortelle, zdravetz, and oudh.
Autumn Coolness 2012
The scent of wisteria, Cymbidium, lotus blossom, and cassia buds drifting on a breeze through gently swaying bamboo reeds.
Bonfire Night 2012
Beer, woodsmoke, tar, and treacle.
Eerie billows of spun sugar, fluttering white cotton, and sheets of cream.
Dia de Los Muertos 2012
Dry, crackling leaves, the incense smoke of altars honoring Death and the Dead, funeral bouquets, the candies, chocolates, foods and tobacco of the ofrenda, amaranth, sweet cactus blossom and desert cereus.
Fizzy Jack O’ Lantern
1.5 oz gin
½ oz dry sherry
½ oz lemon juice
1 tsp pumpkin butter
2 dashes of Averna amaro
Pour the gin, sherry, lemon juice, pumpkin butter, and liqueur to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake that mofo and strain it into a rocks glass filled with ice and a strong, spicy ginger ale. Stir gently, and garnish with a cinnamon stick or human finger bone.
Purple-stemmed raspberries, twining grape vines, Spanish moss, and dusty pale woods.
Mango-Infused Pumpkin Chai Latte
Pumpkin-spiced gunpowder tea with mango peel, red ginger, green cardamom, smoky clove buds, fennel, allspice, saffron, coconut sugar, and foamy milk.
Mediation in Autumn 2012
A desolate scent, dusty, bleak, and withered: old wood, burnt brown sandalwood, and twisted vines.
The scent of petty vandalism: toilet paper wads on damp maple trees, squished pumpkins, raw eggs, beer, pumpkin seed hulls, and soapy glass.
Azaroles, nuts, and apple blossoms with red apple pulp, mulberry, blackberry, and pomegranate juice.
Punkie Night 2012
Apple orchards, bright cranberries, and a touch of warm cider.
Damp woods, fir needle, and black patchouli with the gentlest touches of warm pumpkin, clove, nutmeg, allspice, sweet red apple and mullein.
Suck It 2012
Black cherry brandy.
Sugar Skull 2012
A blend of five sugars, lightly dusted with candied fruits.
There’s also a new Haunted House Collection as well but I didn’t list the full scents here.
